Cakwe

Do you know cakwe? It is a type of food/snack from China but found also in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Laos and other countries near Asia. It is a deep-fried snack like doughnuts. In Indonesia, we usually eat it with porridge, with a type of bean soup (tau-suan) or probably just as it is. In other countries, they serve it as breakfast or dessert.

Different countries have different names for “cakwe”. In Indonesia, we call it “cakwe”. In Singapore, they call it “char-kuey”. In China, they call it “you-tiao” and in other countries other different names.

It is really good, crispy when just fried. Do you like cakwe? Well, I do 🙂
