Where to order your Malay and Nyonya kuih from in the Klang Valley

Quintessentially Malaysian, kuih is a staple in our local cuisine. Perfect for a tea-time snack or a post-meal treat, they come in all colours, shapes, and sizes. Recipes have been passed down through generations in Malay and Peranakan (or Nyonya) households and have since been ingrained in our local palate. 

Often seen displayed in technicolour platters, kuih-muih is readily available all over the country in Malay and Nyonya variations. There’s something for everyone as they range from the bright and sweet kuih lapis to the savoury pulut panggang. In this guide, we point you in the direction of some of the best bite-sized traditional treats in the Klang Valley.
