Kluang Buy: Tong Huat Confectionery (东发饼家) Mung Bean Biscuit

Tong Huat Traditional Confectionery (东发传统饼家) is a well-known and popular shop in Kluang that sells mung bean biscuits or tau sar peah (豆沙饼). A long queue is always formed outside the shop on Saturdays and public holidays — Tong Huat is closed on Sundays.

As a precaution against COVID-19, the shop is still out of bound to anyone. But, there is no need to go in to browse the products on the shelves. Most customers are here for two hot items: Tong Huat's salty mung bean biscuits (咸豆沙饼) and sweet mung bean biscuits (甜豆沙饼). Tong Huat do make other traditional pastries, such as heong peah (香饼) and traditional mooncakes during the Mid-Autumn Festival.

Of the two types of mung bean biscuits, the salty version is a hot favourite among local customers and tourists who heard about the biscuits. As such, each customer is limited to buying up to 10 packs (5 pieces in each pack) of their salty mung bean biscuits. The biscuits are freshly-baked in the shop twice daily and ready for sales at 9am and 2:30pm (time may varies during festive seasons).

As first-timer to Tong Huat, it will be better to go early and get both the sweet and salty versions to try.

The salty mung bean biscuit is mild savoury-sweet with light shallot aroma and in crispy smooth and layered crusts, which is slightly harder than other mung bean biscuits and not becoming soft after a week. Despite being called "salty", these biscuits are not really that salty. And no preservatives used. It is no wonder that the biscuit is so popular.


It is difficult to stop after eating just one piece of the biscuits.

The sweet mung bean biscuits is very much similar to the salty biscuits except that the filling is not salted. It is not too sweet either and the taste is not bad too. I like both the sweet and salty tau sar peah.
