Sesame Ball 芝麻球
Jian dui is a type of fried Chinese pastry made from glutinous rice flour. The pastry is coated with sesame seeds on the outside and is crisp and chewy. Inside the pastry is a large hollow, caused by the expansion of the dough.The hollow of the pastry is filled with a filling usually consisting of lotus paste (蓮蓉), or alternatively sweet black bean paste (hei dousha, 黑豆沙), or less commonly red bean paste (hong dousha, 紅豆沙).Depending on the region and cultural area, jian dui are known as matuan (麻糰) in northern China, ma yuan (麻圆) in northeast China, and zhen dai (珍袋) in Hainan. In American Chinese restaurants and pastry shops, they are known as Sesame Seed Balls. They are also sometimes referred to as zhimaqiu (芝麻球), which translates to sesame balls in English.
Huat Kueh 发糕
$1.70 – $12.00
Fa gao (simplified Chinese: 发糕; traditional Chinese: 發粿; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: huat-kué) is a Chinese cupcake-like pastry, most commonly consumed on the Chinese new year, that is made of flour (usually rice flour), leavening (traditionally yeast, but can be chemical leavening), sugar or another sweetener, steamed (instead of baked), until the top splits into a characteristic “split top” of four segments. The batter is typically left to rest for fermentation prior to being steam-cooked.The name of the cake is a pun, as “fa” means both “prosperity” and “raised (leavened)”, so “fa gao” means both “prosperity cake” and “raised (leavened) cake”. These cakes, when used to encourage prosperity in the new year, are often dyed bright colors.

Ji Xiang Confectionery started its business from a kitchen in a HDB flat.
This family run business started out selling only two flavours, peanut and sweet bean paste, to provision shops an hawker around the neighbourhood.
Their hand made Ang ku kung soon garnered them a loyal following, which led to the setup of their space at Everton Park in 1988.
Since then, JIxiang Confectionery (吉祥食品, ‘吉’ ‘meaning Luck and ‘祥’ meaning prosperity) has been a mainstay at Block 1 Everton Park and commonly known to customers as Everton Park Ang ku kueh
