Tau Sa Piar
Most Penang food list seems to forgotten this popular food but most tourists who visited Penang always go back with packs of freshly baked tau sar piar. Tau sar piah means mungbean biscuit in Chinese dialect Hokkien. I almost forgotten to mention that many local Chinese are Hokkiens and they speak in Mandarin and Hokkien.

Tau Sar Piah is usually baked with filling of salted mungbeans. The shape is like a mini egg and it is very tasty and addictive. They are usually sold in boxes and now some of them are sealed in plastic wrappers. There are two main popular brands in Penang and they are Ghee Hiang and Him Heang.
