Jenny Bakery Cookies from Hong Kong

Recently a friend back from Hong Kong brought me this Jenny Bakery cookies. I am quite surprised with the good taste of this cookies especially their butter and coffee cookies. No wonder they dare to claim that they are "A true Hong Kong Treat" and "Probably the best cookies in the world" wow... The cookies is famous for heavy after taste of butter and the shop always has long queue. Their constant change on the packaging design is also the main attraction to their cookies.

Taste:9/10(Delicious. The cookies are very rich, buttery, creamy and crumbly which melts in your mouth. The quality of the cookies is also quite consistent. For first timer, do buy their 4 mix butter cookies with butter flower, shortbread, raisin oat and coffee flower. I personally find that butter flower is the best followed by coffee flower).
Price:4/10(Near expensive. The cookie price at HKD75 for small container of 320 gram and HKD140 for 640 gram).

Taste:9/10(Delicious. The paella here is the best that I tasted in Kuala Lumpur. The Valencian Paella is so rich with seafood flavour and packed generously with thick tender pieces of squid, chicken, prawn and mussels. The Pimientos padron pepper tapas were delicious as well. Smoked beef ham of Cecina were great as well. The octopus and the huevos rotos were just normal. Chocolate caramel churros were great but the catalana cream were just normal).
