CNY 2015 Gartien Pineapple Cakes

Henry Tan | 11:01 PM |
This year Gartien offers Chinese New Year Limited Edition of pineapple cakesGartien has been so successful that every year they would come out with special edition for the festive season. Check out last year CNY 2014 Gartien Peony here. However, this was my first time to visit to Gartien new shop in Penang road. 

CNY Limited Edition 2015 Gartien

Gartien - Free Car Park
With the help of darling, she went back to my old post to find out this Free Car Park map. It's quite easy to find the Free Car Park since it is actually the car park of Hotel Central. But since the car park is located behind that row of shop houses, you might want to drive slowly to look for the entrance of Lorong Bertam on your left.

Once you parked your car, do remember to bring along the ticket to Gartien. (1) From the car park, the fastest way would be walking thru Hotel Central using their back door. (2) Then it would leads you to their front door where you will see Guardian Lion (石獅). (3) Turn left at the Hotel Central front door and walk further down. (4) Among all the old shop houses, you will notice a new modern Gartien.

Gartien - Entrance
The entrance of Gartien could be easily found with the light bulbs beautifully hanging down from the ceiling. The bunting is also very catchy placing right beside the door!

It's a simple and spacious shop. You will be greeted by this lady at the counter upon entering the shop. All their products could be seen easily at the counter.

Gartien - Transparency view of the kitchen
Ms Miki told us that they had changed into new modern kitchen which is more efficient and a lot more cleaner! I would say this is a good change! In the recent years, many shops and even factory such as the bread factories were ordered to closed down due to the failure to comply to cleanliness level. The transparency of their kitchen definitely could increase the level of confidence from the consumers.

Gartien - 2014 PIE Award
At the counter, Gartien showcasing their 2014 Pinnacle International Excellence award under Emerging Class for Tourism Souvenir! So yes! 

Don't tell anyone you have been to Penang 
if you did not bring this back as souvenir!

The Chinese New Year Limited Edition Gartien Pineapple Cakes consists of 10 pieces in each box. This year their box is in Tiffany Blue color, which is quite trendy! I guess they are trying to open up their market to younger generation too!

Gartien - Handmade Pineapple Jam
Well, if you compare side by side between Gartien pineapple jam and normal one, you would see that it is totally different. Gartien pineapple jam uses 水晶黄梨 (crystal pineapple?) which is relatively sweet! Unlike conventional pineapple jam, Gartien uses pure fresh pineapple without using other chemical or preservative, which you could still see the pineapple chunks.

A cup of tea would also be served together with the sample of pineapple cake and pineapple jam. It is recommended that the pineapple cake is a good pairing with warm tea. Meanwhile, the pineapple jam would be tasted together with Marie biscuit.

It's kinda fun to sit down and enjoy a cup of tea and a piece of pineapple cake while witnessing the busy street. But of course, it would be perfect to have someone by your side, especially a pretty one! ;)
