Vegetarian (Eggless) Cookies from Koi Kei Bakery in Macau & Singapore

Friday, September 19, 2014


Koi Kei Bakery (Pastelaria Koi Kei) has several shops in Macau. Still, due to its immense popularity, almost all those shops are always very crowded especially those located at Senado Square on the streets leading to the Ruins of St. Paul's. They have at least one shop in Singapore too which is located at 56, Temple Street, Chinatown, Singapore (Phone: 6225-7677). I love to shop at Koi Kei but being vegetarian, my choices there are always limited. In both their locations in Macau and Singapore I have been able to find at least two variants of their cookies that are vegetarian, which means that as per the list of ingredients these cookies do not contain eggs. However, before I give the details on these two variants, a disclaimer will be in order. These cookies are made in bakeries where cookies containing eggs are also made. Hence, similar to the warnings on possibly allergic ingredients found on many processed foods packages, the packets of these eggless cookies too have a warning on them that the cookies may contain traces of eggs. One needs to be practical here and decide whether one wants to eat these cookies or not. Don't we eat vegetarian food in restaurants that also serve non-vegetarian food? Now read more...

Koi Kei Bakery Vegetarian (Eggless) Cookies

Vegetarian (Eggless) Cookies from Koi Kei Bakery Macau & Singapore

Koi Kei cookies are made using mung Beans' flour and taste very different from the refined wheat flour cookies. These are the two eggless variants that I know of:

Almond Cookies with Whole Almond


Koi Kei Bakery Eggless Almond Cookies with Whole Almonds

These cookies contain mung bean powder, sugar, almonds (11%), peanuts, soy bean oil, milk powder and cornstarch.

Almond Cookies with Black Sesame


Koi Kei Bakery Eggless Almond Cookies with Black Sesame Seeds

These cookies contain mung bean powder, sugar, almonds, sesame seeds, peanuts, soy bean oil, milk powder and cornstarch.

Price

In Singapore, both these variants cost 12.10 SGD per pack of 12 cookies. In Macau, the price will be roughly half of that. I know its steep but the cookies are individually packed and certainly worth tasting.
