Indonesian delicacies - Bengawan Solo

Bengawan Solo was founded in 1979 by Tjendri Anastasia, originally from Indonesia. Anastasia came to Singapore where she met her husband, Johnson Liew. After getting married, Anastasia's interest in Indonesian delicacies continued in the little home kitchen of her HDB flat. Gradually, word of the existence of her tasty goodies got around, and, before she knew it, orders for her cakes and kueh came rolling in. Her home-made specialties even made it onto the shelves of some supermarkets and emporiums, albeit produced without a food manufacturing licence. 

Lapis, kuek, cake...Indonesian goodies...

They sell tins of cookies too. Nicely wrapped.

Their  Pandan Chiffon is soft and dense! I saw tourists buying boxes of pandan chiffon!

I like the white portion, that is the coconut milk.
