Where to buy freshly made kueh lapis / layer cake?

We are staying at Harris Batam Centre, any recommendation on where we can buy freshly made kueh lapis cakes back home? How much would it cost?

Thanks!

Diana Layer Cake is closest to you... can't tell you how to get there though because it's inside a residential area. Another alternative would be walking across Megamal and then you can sample some of the kueh lapis. If you like the sample then buy.

Good layers cake should be priced around $25-30.

Thanks Chandrana, do you roughly know its in which area or the address? Diana Layer Cake is it quite well known by the locals, if yes then was thinking to go by cab to buy. Is it on the way from Harris Batam Centre hotel to Nagoya Hills? Was thinking to get the taxi driver to go to that place to buy the cake, on the way from the hotel to Nagoya Hills.

Thanks!

No clue about the address and i doubt the taxi knows where it is. But yes, it is sort of a small detour on the way from your hotel to Nagoya Hill.

Which one? Layers or Vereen? hehehe... My favorite is vereen... a bit too oily for some but definitely tasty for me =)

Actually my mum had just been there last week - there are only one layer cakes shop at BCS now - the rest seems to be some sort of mini marts which sell breads etc - Chandrana - How many famous cake shop were there in Batam - I tried about 7 shops through out our numerous massage trips, but most of them were tour guided destinations, until we check out the local malls ourselves.

Famous? Among tourists maybe... like Diana Layers Cake, Layers, Catarina and that one near top 100 but moved out already. Others I am not so sure because I never join the tours =)

Hmmm I haven't really noticed if the shop closed down but the one I prefer is just opposite the 'Layers' cake shop in BCS called 'Veeren' (maybe wrong spelling) or something like that.
