Kee Wah Pineapple Shortcake

kee wah pineapple short cake

One of my must eat and buy every single time I'm in Hongkong.
Nothing fanciful, nothing elaborate...
 Just an inglorious snack.

Buttery and crumbly the snack falls apart to reveal a gelatinous pineapple paste.
Delectable.

Now why didn't I lug home more!

  4. Yikes! Just tried this today. So not nice. :/ This tasted more like wintermelon shortcake to me. Sunnyhills' pineapple shortcake is miles miles much better. In fact, the filling here tasted like the wintermelon paste in lao po bing, the pineapple paste contains wintermelon. Are the Taiwanese pineapple shortcakes you bought in Taiwan really different from their HK counterparts? hehe I'm going to get some Chia Te's pineapple shortcakes soon!
