Kueh | 粿 
It started off as a proposal for a Peranakan restaurant. In the process of drawing the kueh, I was fascinated by the plethora of kueh from the various cuisines around Southeast Asia. Each piece led to the discovery of kueh I never knew.
 
Kueh has many names. I have chosen to use "kueh" instead of kuih, kway or kue. When enjoying. There are many forms of spelling for each of the kueh from Baba Malay, Malay ,Indonesian to Chinese. I have included some of the alternative names and used their common names as well for the 3 pieces.
 
The prints are available via Zazzle:
