Seen and heard of the best of local Singaporean Food
Whether it is tea time or simply your first meal of the day, our local version of cake, kueh, comes in the perfect proportion to chomp down on a few, or to stop at one if you’re not too hungry.
Kuehs or kueh kueh may be richer or more decadent in ingredients than their Western cousins. So, be careful not to have too many.
These colourful snacks may look deceptively light, but just one bite of the kueh brings forth the rich flavours of pandan, coconut milk and grated coconut. Still, these are what make them taste so good.
Here are a few shops to try kueh.
Lek Lim Nonya Cake Confectionary
This shop has been around since 1967 and is popular for their multi-coloured jiu cheng gao, also known as Kueh Lapis Sagu. Only their version has ten layers with a white base.
