Trust us, it’s perfect for snack time while catching up with your aunties and uncles.

2. Popiah

A traditional Malaysian snack, Popiah features thin crepe-like skin filled with many savoury ingredients like jicama, carrots, bean sprouts, and prawns, all seasoned with fragrant spices. Its fresh, light flavours are a contrast to the richness of other festive treats and will definitely make your taste buds go “Wah, shiok sia!”

3. Ketupat

5. Serunding

Serunding is the ultimate Hari Raya snack. A savoury and aromatic dish made from shredded meat, typically chicken or beef, it’s cooked with coconut milk and a blend of spices until it becomes ho jiak. We recommend makan-ing it with Ketupat or Lemang.
