Tong Huat Confectionery @ Kluang, Johor – delicious tau sar pneah

Fabulous tar sar pneah at Kluang

After numerous postings on FB/Instagram about my love for Tau Sar Pneah (you can check out the ones I tried from Perak –>, my friend Han got me 2 packs of tau sar pneah from his hometown Kluang.
This is the only stall dao sa pheah I will eat” he had declared with pride. 

I had challenged him if he had tried any others from Perak and Penang, since both states are known for tau sar pneah. In fact I was rather skeptical of Kluang as a “famous tau sar pneah producer”.

The biscuits come in only one size; spherical with crisp and flaky pastry.
Filled with aromatic semi-moist mungbean paste (fried split mung bean) these doesn’t have fried shallots mixed into the paste. I usually like mine with shallots, but Tong Huat’s tau sar pneah are so good that I didn’t mind them without. The sweetness of filling is just right too.

The biscuits are packaged hygienically in food-grade wrapper to preserve freshness. However, they are best consumed within 2 weeks.

After finishing my stash and hoping that Han will be heading home to Kluang soon so I could re-stock on them, an offer for a 2 days 1 night trip to Kluang came up.
And thus I made my maiden trip to Kluang and happily enough, a stopover at Tong Huat was in our itinerary.

It was fun and educational to be able to watch them make and pack the famous tau sar pneah. Though I didn’t manage to get any tips or recipes, it was an eye-opener.
And of course, it provided me the opportunity to stock up on more of their biscuits!



They offer more than just tau sar pneah of course.
This was also my first encounter with charcoal kuih kapit (love letters) and I just had to buy some to sample.
Unfortunately I find them too sweet and heavy on the coconut milk. I had always preferred mine with a strong, eggy flavour.
The pineapple tarts were worse (I’ll update with an image once I find it), was too sweet for me.

So if you are in Kluang, make sure Tong Huat is on your list of must-visit.
Do call them in advance too, for the tau sar pneah are very popular and usually out of stock.

    ooo, i love behind-the-scenes glimpses at the production of food … my grandmother would not approve of the black kuih kapit, but she would definitely adore the tau sar pneah! 🙂

      I didn’t approve of the black kuih kapit either! LOL.
      But the tau sar pneah is amazing!

    I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian. May I know is there any lard added into the dough.

      Yes there is (I’m pretty sure) but you can always call to confirm again 🙂

    just tried their tau sar pneah and the taste was amazing. i can say the taste comparable to Him Heang from Penang for the salty one. As for the sweet one, i still prefer Him Heang over Tong Huat.
