There’s another famous biscuit that comes from Perak, and it’s the chicken biscuit.
It contains zero real chicken, but has all the beauty of chicken flavouring. It also contains nam yu, a type of red coloured fermented bean curd, sesame seeds, sugar, maltose, winter melon, spices and a healthy dose of lard. It’s a far cry from the salty Western option in the form of Nabisco’s Chicken in a Biscuit.
The chicken biscuit comes in two forms, a thick and chewy one, and the thin and crispy one.
