It is time of the year again, which is your favorite brand for kueh lapis.

 

i usually buy from batam since 3 years ago, tried a few brands there and can really tell one cent money, one cent goods!  There are many selling at the shopping malls, or some at the 'factory'. The price also varies from $10+ to $50+.

 

by the way, i was told to put cake in the freezer until eve of cny, or normal chill is good enough? 

 

see the different? ....  price also different  [laugh]

I think chill can already. I always bake for CNY and keep for a few weeks in the fridge. Never go bad.

 

Some of the kueh Lapis from Batam got no brandy in it right? My family prefers those with brandy.

Lavender?  They have 2 flavours I think.  Cranberry and normal.  I bought the normal.  1kg about 30+ sgd.  Comes in a rectangular tin box.  

 

Royal Istana? It's $100 sgd for 1kg.   CC discount only 10% now.  I think last day is 9 Feb.   Got delivery fee if you buy less than 250 bucks, I think.  Can keep 2 weeks in the fridge, no need to put in the freezer.

This thread come very timely. I just got mine from Lavender at JB. As with Jman888, we used to buy from Indonesia (through friends and relatives), but ever since we tried Lavender (about 5 - 6 years ago), the rest is history.

Relatively cheap and very good. Neither too sweet nor oily. As long as you keep it in fridge (cooling compartment will do), it can last for about a month.

Pricing for this year:

Plain => RM83 / ~S$28.0 (900g)   RM46 / ~S$15.5 (400g)

.

Prune => RM88 / ~S$29.7 (900g)   RM48 / ~S$16.2 (400g)

.

Cranberry => RM88 / ~S$29.7 (900g)   RM48 / ~S$16.2 (400g)

 

Do check out their website for more details and location. https://www.lavender.com.my/
