The Story Of The Traditional Fried Glutinous Rice Cake
When the first generation of Chinese came to Malaysia from China, they maintain the tradition of making sweet glutinous rice cake during Chinese New Year(Spring Festival). As a way of showing appreciation to the God for providing them with good weather for a good harvest, the Chinese would use the corps harvested to make into something exquisite. And hence, the sweet glutinous rice cake was invented.
Just like other Malaysian Chinese, Mr.Ong remain the tradition of making sweet glutinous rice cake during Chinese New Year at home. The recipe and technique was pass down from generation to generation by the Ong Family. Many relatives and friends who visited Mr.Ong, like the ‘Ong’s Family Sweet Glutinous Rice Cake’ so much that they keep on persuading him to sell it all year long so they do not have to wait for the next Chinese New Year to taste it.
In 1989, after much consideration, Mr.Ong started to sell fried sweet glutinous rice cake at the junction of Weld Quay and Lebuh Acheh which is just beside the currect Oh Kio Desert Ice and later move to the current location. Mr.Ong also added a lot of Malaysian style snacks suitable for afternoon tea to satisfied all the craving of his regular customer.
