Although am a big fan of Tau Sa Piah, I normally only get to eat only those from Pearl of Orient. And they are purely with yellow beans or a.k.a. ‘tau sa’ fillings only. Seems pretty normal.
But once I tasted this Chicken Floss Puff by Yee Hup Enterprise from Ipoh, I think I can temporarily forgo the usual ubiquitous tau sa piah, hehe. The secret lies in the filling used by Yee Hup. In addition, the puffs were nicely packed in a perfect order.
After the first bite, am surprised as well as delighted to see there was chicken floss in it! It might seems contrary when it comes to such combination of opposing flavor; chicken floss for being salty whereas the tau sa filling is meant to be slight sweet. In addition, we usually only heard of sweet and sour dishes only right?
So this definitely is one of the innovative and fresh idea, at least to me
The puff is soft and flaky on the outside with a tinge of crispiness. The layer is aromatic too as there are also some dashes of black sesame on it when baked. Come to the most interesting part was its filling. After the first bite, only I realized that a hint of saltiness and sweetness could be so wonderful, hehe. The fluffiness of the chicken floss together with the powdery tau sa filling, make such a humble delish snacks which is best enjoyed during a lazy afternoon. ^_^
