Together with my wife, we are creating an awfully delicious pastry that combines the best of the best ingredients which are easily available in Singapore, and people will definitely love it. Adding my favorite snack, Bak Kwa (the slices of Chinese pork jerky) and my wife’s favorite snack, potato chips, we recreate an all new chocolate brownie. We call it “Bak Kwa Potato Chips Brownie”. Ooohhhhh …..

Besides being rich in cocoa taste for the brownie, the Bak Kwa and potato chips goes hand-in-hand together very well. The Bak Kwa gave that sweet and chewy mouthfeel while the potato chips gave that saltish taste. When I got my first taste of our creation, my first thought of the Bak Kwa Potato Chips Brownie was “this creation taste heavenly.”
