For families, the most anticipated celebration of the year isn’t complete without serving a delicious menu of traditional Raya snacks to keep adults and children entertained during this joyous holiday.
But what if you’re busy or aren’t able to go out to buy some Raya snacks for the house? Here’s a few places that can deliver all your favourite childhood goodies right to your doorstep!
P.S. For more options, check out online Ramadan bazaars by Vtapau and Fashion Valet where you can order your Raya snacks from!
1. Not your typical Raya snacks – Fulaitang Enterprise
Every Raya, we’re so used to seeing sweet dry cookies tastefully spread out on coffee tables and kitchen counters at home for all our relatives and guests to dig their hands into. But how often do you get traditional kuehs like Kuih Lapis, Kuih Koci or Kuih Angku served during this festive season?
Run by Fulaitang Enterprise, this shop has a history of making delicious Nyonya kuihs for 35 years and has recently started their online business last December. Now they can deliver these sweet traditional kuihs right to your home and into your stomachs. Reliving our favourite kampung homemade Nyona pastries, Raya will definitely be extra exciting this year!
P.S. You also need to place your order one day in advance. One of their popular kuihs are yam cake, nasi pulut and Angku.2. This beautifully patterned cake is more than just a snack, it’s a heritage – Kek Lapis Sarawak Premium
Kek Lapis Sarawak is a one-of-a-kind layered cake you must have in your household if you really want to get people talking. Originating from Sarawak, this cake has officially become a cultural heritage trademark in Sarawak and though it may look tasty, make no mistake, it’s one of the most difficult cakes to make.
The process of baking involves a lot of time and patience, and the craftsmanship that goes into layering these cakes with unique patterns is something different. This is why these cakes can be as expensive as RM 400 per kg! But no worries, Kek Lapis Sarawak Premium offers affordable and equally delicious Kek Lapis for you to try!
3. Almond London for the little ones – The Cake Cookish
Every time you go to your fave aunty’s house, you’ll never miss out on these! Little kids love stuffing their face with these Almond London cookies (me too!). The Cake Cookish makes amazing Almond London cookies and chocolate chip cookies that people can’t seem to get enough of!
4. Semperit, Malaysia’s very own Scottish butter cookies – Kuih Raya Onz
How did semperit get its name? Some sources claim it was from a mispronunciation of the word ‘shortbread’ by a Malay chef, while others say it originated from Indonesia.
This iconic dahlia-shaped cookie has grabbed the hearts of many, including our very own Malaysian pop icon, Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza, who proudly vouches for Kuih Raya Onz’s famous semperit cookies! Crisp and sweet, you should totally add this to your cart!
5. Raya isn’t Raya without Kuih Nastar (pineapple tarts) – Alaena Mirza Desserts
Perhaps the King of Raya snacks, Kuih Nastar or fondly known as pineapple tarts, are tarts with pineapple jam fillings wrapped in a moist, toothsome buttery and crumbly pasties served on trays of every Malaysian Muslim home.
The first thing you go grab as a snack would always be Kuih Nastar. This bakery makes delicious nastars for you to treat your guests (when they can visit) and are freshly baked from home!
P.S. Deliveries will only be after the fasting month as they want to ensure the freshness of these nastars.
6. Oh honey, wait til’ you have a bite of this – Sudi Enterprise
A simple recipe that’s been passed down from generation to generation, honey cornflakes is always a kids’ favourite at any Raya party. Aunties and grandmas love baking these sweet treats for its honey goodness, not to mention how quick and easy it is to make them for those last-minute prep.
And if you don’t have time, Sudi Enterprise is here to save you with their homemade freshly made honey cornflakes, topped with almond nibs!
PS Last order is on may 8th, and delivery will only be made throughout until 22 may.
7. All-you-can-get scrumptious treats – Pemborong Kuih Raya
Don’t you wish there’s a place where you can buy just ANY of your fave kuih rayas without the hassle of going from one shop to another? Pemborong Kuih Raya (as its name states) has all your fave Raya treats under one roof!
If you’re looking for Kuih Bangkit, Makmur cookies, Biskut Dam or Popia Simpul, here’s the place for you. And if you buy 5 jars, you can get 1 more for free for RM 100! A steal!
8. Enjoy a spicy take on this honeycomb cookie, Kuih Ros – Petit Delicacies
You may have seen this being served during the Chinese New Year, Raya Aidilfitri and Deepavali when visiting your neighbours’ homes. This cookie actually originates from India, more specifically in the southern area where it’s known as ‘achu murukku’ or ‘achappam’.
Over here, we call it Kuih Loyang, or commonly known as Kuih Ros. If you’re searching for delicious golden Kuih Ros, Petit Delicacies has just what you need, with an interesting twist. Here, their spicy Kuih Ros is a hot seller, and people just can’t get enough of it!
Personally, I’ve never tried a spicy honeycomb cookie, but perhaps this Raya I might, what about you?
9. This cat will definitely catch your tongue (Kuih Lidah Kucing) – Tip Top Cookies
Personally, this is one of my most favorite Raya snacks that I look forward to eating whenever this special holiday rolls in. Despite its name, it’s not actually made of cat’s tongue, it just looks like it, and it’s rainbow-coloured!
I can chew down one whole jar in less than 30 minutes, ‘cause it’s so good! It’s cracker-like sweet texture just melts in your mouth, and it’s hard to resist digging your hands into another jar of Cat’s Tongue. Tip Top Cookies sells Kuih Lidah Kucing, and they’ve been featured on MELETOP and Jom Singgah TV3 too!
P.S. Currently they have temporarily stopped taking orders for their Kuih Lidah Kucing and macarons. But you can still order their other cookies like Red Velvet or Blue Velvet cookies, Cadbury Balls or even their groovy Alien Cookies
10. A taste of Southern India to excite your palette, Rempeyek – Jajan Borong Sweet Shop
As far as my experience goes when visiting my relatives’ and family friends’ homes for Raya, this snack isn’t commonly served, but it’s still lovable nevertheless.
Rempeyek, which is a deep-fried savoury cracker usually mixed with peanuts, dried anchovies or shrimps, actually originates from Java. Now it’s more commonly found in Malaysia! Those sold at Jajan Borong Sweet Shop aren’t the usual rounded ones.
Instead, it’s made into squares and it comes in many flavours like anchovies, dhal, green peas and ground nuts! They even have cheese rempeyek!
There you have it! Hope we’ve saved you a lot of time and energy looking for affordable, delicious yet homemade Raya snack deliveries! Do let us know if there’s any other shops that are well worth recommending too!
