Best Rempeyek Ever


No, I don't have a recipe for rempeyek and neither do I know how rempeyek is made. On Wednesday, as I was walking along the footpath between UOB Bank and Alliance Bank, Damansara Uptown, I saw a group of boys promoting and giving out free samples of rempeyek. Funny thing is, I do not usually accept free food samples and I was not exactly crazy about rempeyek , but somehow I took a piece.


Crunch! Crunch! It was crispy and very fresh and it was the best rempeyek I ever tasted. I know I am supposed to be on a diet but after buying my lunch, I heard the rempeyek calling out to me loud and clear hah! hah! So what did I do? I pusing balik (turned around) and walked back  to buy the rempeyek. The nice young chap recognised me and offered me another piece (rezeki jangan ditolak) which I happily accepted.


I bought 2 packets at RM15.00 each. Each packet contains 50 pieces (Phong Hong!!!) of rempeyek. You can also buy the smaller packet with 25 pieces and it costs RM10.00 per packet. There are two varieties of rempeyek i.e peanut or dhall. The sample I tried was with peanut. I was given a flyer and noted that this rempeyek is called Secret Rempeyek. I guess it's a secret recipe and I was really impressed with the taste.


The suppliers take delivery orders and if you buy five packets and above, delivery is free of charge. For those of you residing in KL and Selangor you can call Zab at (017) 369-4364 or Jack at (017) 244-8797 to order.


This is not a paid post. I am just sharing this information in case there are any of you who love rempeyek and want to taste a really good one :)

  1. Hi Phong Hong, this really addictive....hard to stop eating. LOL
    This rempeyek must add jintan putih, jntan manis, a pinch of kapur in the batter then only it taste nice. Wait I go cari my recipe for you, long time never make this cos worry over eating.
    You can buy the mold from any bakery ingredients shop, now got mini size mold too.

    Have a nice weekend, I'm making ice cream today.

  3. Phong Hong, I don't think that I have this rempeyek before but I tell you what, when I was young, I used to eat a crunchy & crispy snack also in round shape with lots of peanuts but without the ikan bilis. The colour of it was darker brown & it tasted a bit salty. In Sydney, sometimes, I could eat it when my father-in-law's relatives paid a visit to Hainan Island, China. Next time, I will take a photo to show you & may be you can help me to find out what it calls so I can find the recipe. Thanks first!

  5. Hi Phong Hong...

    Yeah it's me. I finally emerged, tak tahu for how long this time. Adoi, don't know what hit me la, but definately it hit me hard. I am so lazy to even on my laptop! So kalau laptop tak on, blog pun tak update la... hehehe...

    Anyway, rempeyek is my favourite. My late granny used to make for us like a big tin full of rempeyek and tumpi. Unfortunately, she left before I managed to learn from her because then, I was still very young (not to say that I am very old now la kan... hahahaha... tak mau mengaku!). But then, if it is really nice and can't stop munching it, 50 pieces is nothing right?! Hehehe...

    Have a great day my friend....

    1. Hi MamaFaMi! I tau what you are talking about. I pun lately macam takder mood jer. Kadang-kadang kerja rumah pun terbiar. Baru pagi tadi basuh pot yang I guna untuk masak sup semalam. Anyway, I ngap 1/2 paket rempeyek dhall. Mak oi! Sedap betul! Too bad you tak belajar dari granny. If not I boleh belajar dengan you hee..hee...

  8. Cuz, next time I visit PJ/ KL, must pre-order before we go and pick up when we are there. Both hubby and I love rempeyek. Have you tried the ones with mung/ green beans? Lagi enak! Habis lah diet kita. Kahkahkah!!! ;-)

I will buy later after I complete my diet heh..heh...I have not tried the ones with mung bean but the ones with dhall is really good too. I bought 2 big packets and my goodness, I finished it so fast. It is really good, so you should order it when you come back :)
