There's no leaving Penang without bringing home a box of Tambun Biscuits, but how about learning to make them too?

Tambun Biscuits, also known as Tau Sar Pneah or Dragon Ball Biscuits, are crunchy balls of pastry filled with savoury or sweet fillings, most notably mung bean paste. Different kinds of pastries are used to form the different layers which surround the filling, and oven-baked to perfection.

This bakery has specialized in Tambun Biscuits and other local Penang products since 1995. The hands-on experience shows you how this popular local snack is made. Your local expert will guide you through the steps of making the biscuits, then you can pop them into the oven. You will also get to see what happens behind the scenes, as they produce thousands of delicious Tambun Biscuits each day. Once the oven rings, your Tambun Biscuits are ready!

    Would not recommend this experience. The activity lasted 5 minutes in total at most. Dough was already made and rolled out, the activity just was to assemble a few cookies.
