Home-Cooked Bak Zhang by Hakka Tale

May 23, 2017

Catering & delivery service Hakka Tale is offering two types of kitchen-made bak zhang for this years rice dumpling season, prepared by a matriarch with decades of experience (both in restaurants & at home) in Hakka cuisine. The traditional favourite of savoury meat bak zhang (咸肉粽) comprises pork, chestnuts, mushrooms, salted egg yolk, dried shrimp & black eyed peas, while the sweet incarnation  (鹼水粽) conceals a centre of red bean paste. We enjoyed both - they tasted fresh & tender, well-balanced with capably cooked stuffings. The savoury selection clocks in at RM7 apiece, while the sweet ones are RM3 each.

Theres a minimum order of 5 pieces for either type. For orders of at least 10 pieces, Hakka Tale can customise your bak zhang (for example, with a choice of leaner or fattier meat). Orders can be made a couple of days in advance, but customers can also call 019-2287865 to check if existing stocks are available. Many thanks to Hakka Tale for this seasonal treat.
