Chinese New Year is just 10 days away and I bet you’re already thinking about the one thing we all look forward to: FOOOOOOD. In fact, you can’t celebrate Chinese New Year without feasting!

Mention Chinese New Year food; dumplings, noodles, and niangao may come into mind. But there are actually a bunch of other foods/snacks that we can enjoy this CNY! Especially in Malaysia since us Malaysians take our food seriously #TrueStory.

So in this blog post, I thought I should introduce some cool, local food / treats which are unique and different apart from the usual pineapple tarts & bak kwa that you eat every year. 

#1 – Salted Egg Chips by Hou Sek Gourmet Snacks

Who can say no to salted egg? Especially when they come in the form of potato chips!

Hou Sek specializes in curating premium Salted Egg potato chips. We think these chips are pretty unique because their fresh & crispy chips are coated with 100% real salted egg. Once you start with the first chip, you probably can’t stop – so consider yourself warned!

Hou Sek chips comes in three different flavors and they are all preservatives & pork free too; so this would make a good snack for everyone. Get you salted egg fix at www.housek.co

#2 – #Discover Spring Granolas (CNY Special) by Amazin Graze

We all know that eating healthy during CNY is a real challenge… especially when faced with temptation from the mountain of CNY snacks presented in front of you. But for those of you who are looking to eat clean & healthy this CNY, it’s still possible with Amazin’ Graze!

We think this makes the perfect CNY meal because of its name haha. But seriously, we love how creative they get with their ingredients! They used soft tender, smoked duck slices on a bed of torched mandarin oranges and cheese and topped it off with in garlic oil and onion jam.
