Singapore Chilli Crab in snack form
.
Made with real crab meat
.
The sweetness of the crabmeat balance the warm spiciness of the chili and the smokiness of roasted seaweed
.
And causing an incredible mix of flavour that explodes on my tongue

$22 for 500g
.
Bak Kwa with an Asian twist
.
Bits of fresh pineapple embedded within a minced pork jerky
.
An unique combination of savoury and sweet
.
The fresh pineapple bits adds an irresistible tang and succulent crunch to the tender juicy minced pork
.

Part of the ‘Kampong Spirit’ range that embodies the nostalgic flavours and textures of that era
.
Relish the idyllic spirit of the Kampong days
.
When I opened the tin, I could smell the fragrant peanut sauce
.
The cookie had a perfect combination of sweet and savoury; it has the distinct taste of peanut satay sauce and also there are chockfull of chopped peanut bits
.
And the spicy punch of cumin and chili lingers at the back of my throat for a while
.

Part of the ‘Colonial Days’ range that captured the nostalgic taste of our colonial past
.
Bring back the colonial favourites
.
When I opened the tin, I could smell the familiar smokey bak kwa aroma
.
The cookie had a really strong savoury note; strong smokey flavour from the barbecued chicken meat came first when I took a bite
.
A few seconds later, the flavours of garlic and a rather distinct corainder came right after
.
I like that Old Seng Choong are generous with their barbecued chicken meat and also with the addition of black sesame seeds gave the cookie a bit of crunchness and earthiness

.
Bring back the colonial favourites
.
When I opened the tin, I could smell a strong laksa aroma mainly from the combination of lemongrass, laksa leaves and dried shrimp paste
.
The cookie had a strong savoury and mild sweet note; sweet mild flavour from the coconut milk is what came first when I took a bite
.
A few seconds later, strong earthy flavour from dried shrimp paste hits my mouth and then the spiciness from the chili comes right after and lingers for a while at the back of my tongue
.

Part of the ‘Kampong Spirit’ range that embodies the nostalgic flavours and textures of that era
.
Relish the idyllic spirit of the Kampong days
.
When I opened the tin, I got hit with the strong pepper and garlic aroma; a familiar smell when you enter a bak ku teh shop
.
The cookie had a decent savoury note; it has the distinct taste of white pepper and garlic which lingers at the back of my throat
.
And the addition of almonds provided a nice crunch texture
.

Laska in chips form
.
Crispy V-cut chips blended in authenic coconut and laksa
.
Even though the chips had a pleasing laksa but I couldn’t really taste any coconut milk or laksa flavour
.
All I got was SPICY and it really hits you hard

Beef rendang in chips form
.
When I opened the packet, I could smell the familiar beef rendang aroma
.
When I take a bite, I got hit with a strong beefy flavour, then the familiar aroma of rendang spices came after and lastly the spiciness lingers for a while at the back of my throat
.
So far, I find that this is the closest in flavour to the local dish as compared to other 3 F.East potato chips
