Awwww....I thought I will not find this little pie tees/ top hats so near to CNY. Most food stall would be closed on the eve, as many families will be having their reunion dinner at home or at restaurants. I was so happy when I saw them being sold at food stall in a coffee shop near my place. Staying here for 2 decades and I didn't know about this stall selling chinese pancakes and pie tees !!! How blur can I be ? I bought two dozens as our breakfast AppetiZer this morning, the eve of CNY :) This is a nyonya kueh and it has a hollow cup crust which is shaped like a hat ( I think that is the reason why it being called a top hat ) and filled with turnip shreds. Garnishes with some crunchy onions and sesame seeds and eaten with some chilli sauce. This is a nyonya speciality. I don't know why it called Pie Tee and what it symbolizes but to me it is like my cup runneth over...Blessings full to the brim ! :p
GONG XI FAT CAI TO ALL
AND MAY GOD'S BLESSINGS
FILL YOUR CUP TILL YOUR
BLESSINGS RUNNETH OVER !
