Welcome to Straits Lapis
The iconic Kueh Lapis has been part of Southeast Asia’s food heritage for important occasions, festive seasons and family celebrations. Having its roots in Indonesia, it has since extended its presence throughout the region. It has been served at family tables as well as the tables of sultans, prime ministers and presidents.
Straits Lapis invites you to be part of this celebrated heritage; a standard for Chinese New Year & Hari Raya, a birthday cake for a parent, a mother’s day surprise, a tasteful cultural gift for an overseas friend, an expression of Southeast Asian hospitality, or simply to go along with your morning coffee.
Traditional Kueh Lapis Baking – Handmade,Fresh,Natural
Remember when your Grandmother laboured over a charcoal stove making traditional Kueh Lapis for festive seasons? Layer by layer. Hour after hour. The aroma of butter and spice fills the kitchen. And you couldn’t wait to eat!
~Heritage baking; cherished, time consuming, tedious, real, natural~
Straits Lapis is still handmade, still labourious and time consuming. Baked by our preferred partnering bakery in Indonesia, but without the charcoal stove! Carefully layered and made with superior ingredients. No preservatives and additives. No artificial colours and flavours. No hydrogenated fats. And less sugar.
Smell the fragrant butter & spice as you uncover the box. Taste the delicate, clean freshness in every bite. Not overly powerful in spice. Not too oily. The rich flavour fully develops several days after baking. Best consumed at room temperature. Don’t forget to store correctly. Read more about storage in the FAQ. Each Straits Lapis comes cling wrapped and delivered in a standard cake box.
