REALLY GOOD
1st KUEH KOSUI
Soots Cook Nook, Private
One of the best I’ve had and I can’t believe it’s my first time making it! It’s redolent with the toffee-coffee-ness of Gula Melaka, further enhanced with the smooth, delicate fragrance of fresh pandan and texturally, it resembles Warabi Mochi which I love. It also closely approximates the Kueh Kosui I’ve had at a certain Peranakan restaurant along Beach Road, which for me, elevated what I’d previously considered to be a rather nondescript dessert.
2nd KOPI GULA MELAKA KUEH KOSUI
STREAT at the Singapore Food Festival 2017, Singapore 049326
Kueh Kosui, duo of Gula Melaka and Coffee Fudge with Grated Coconut and Crushed Nuts. From the folks at PERANAKAN KHEK.
3rd LEMPER AYAM PEDAS
Ratu Lemper, Singapore
Glutinous rice cooked with coconut milk and wrapped around savory spiced chicken in modern sandwich format and neatly parceled up in banana leaves. They weren’t kidding about the spicy.
4th KUIH BINGKA UBI BIRTHDAY SLICE
Violet Oon Singapore, Singapore
Baked cassava cake for the occasion, drizzled with gula Melaka and coconut cream on the side.
5th PEANUT TUTU KUEH
牛车水“嘟嘟”糕 Chinatown Tan’s TuTu Cake, Singapore
Traditional SE Asian snack of steamed rice flour encasing a sweet filling of ground peanuts. 🥜
6th LEMPER AYAM
Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry, Singapore
A roll of sticky rice filled with a spicy and flavorful shredded chicken filling.
9th BINGKA GULA MELAKA
Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry, Singapore
First time trying this combination of tapioca and palm sugar.
10th KUEH KOSUI 椰糖糕
Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry, Singapore
Pillowy soft and with the right balance of not-sickly sweet flavors.
PRETTY GOOD
12th PORTUGAL UBI
Baba Charlie Nyonya Cake, Melaka
My first time trying this confection of tapioca and banana.
13th KUIH LOPES
Rusnah Cafe, Singapore
Got some post-lunch. Not a bad mid-day snack for not being sickly sweet.
14th KUEH KOSUI
Candlenut, Singapore
A thoughtful gesture on behalf of the resto, on occasion of the ibu’s birthday.
15th ONGOL ONGOL 椰糖西米糕
Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry, Singapore
I prefer this to the pandan tapioca kueh, but it doesn’t compare to their kueh kosui.
16th PANDAN TAPIOCA
Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry, Singapore
It’s chewy with a mild pandan flavor, but otherwise nothing special.
17th PUTU AYU
Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry, Singapore
Steamed coconut pandan sponge cakes crowned with grated coconut flavored with gula melaka.
JUST OK
19th ANG GU KUEH
Stamford Catering Services Pte Ltd, Singapore
I’m not exactly crazy about Ang Gu Kuehs so I may not be the best judge. But at least I now know they’re a thing at baby parties. 🐢
20th ASSORTED NONYA KUEH
Ellenborough Market Café, Singapore
In the presence of the formidable durian desserts, these rather nondescript kueh had no chance.
NOT FOR ME
21st KUIH BANGKIT
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Too egg yolk-tasting for my liking. Back to the drawing board...
