Pineapple Tarts near Jonker Street – Pooh Keon Enterprise, Malacca, MALAYSIA
Melaka is famous for its UNESCO heritage site. For its food, it will be the chicken rice ball, the “satay celup” and the pineapple tarts. Pineapple tarts and pineapple rolls are everywhere nowadays in Jonker Street, Melaka. However, finding a good authentic pineapple tart shop could be tough.
My parents have been patronizing a shop near Jonker Street for years. It’s called Pooh Keon Enterprise.
The most notable reason buying from this shop is because the pineapple tarts here are freshly made. There is also a big oven baking the pineapple tarts daily. A box of the pineapple tarts cost around RM 10 (*not sure the exact figure). Pineapple tarts here are made using margarine.
I would recommend the pineapple rolls. A box of pineapple rolls is around RM 12. The picture shows the fresh pineapple rolls on the tray getting ready to put into the oven for baking. Pineapple rolls here are made using butter.
On top of the pineapple tarts and rolls, they also sell other local food products such as husband cake, new year cake and so on.
I bought a few boxes of pineapple rolls for my family and also my in-law family. The pineapple rolls skin is fragrant with the usage of butter. The pineapple fillings are tasty and not too sweet.
However, I do find inconsistency in the boxes of pineapple rolls. Some are more fragrant and taste better while the rest taste rather plain. My mother also felt the same on the recent pineapple rolls boxes we bought.
If they can maintain their consistency, the pineapple rolls here are recommended.
