It doesnt take CRAZY rich Asians to be KUEHzy! 😎 . Back at Toa Payoh Lor 5 for some yummy Ang Ku Kuehs! Going at just $1 per piece, these traditional handmade kuehs are indeed attractive! 😍😍😍 . Previously had the classic peanut Ang Ku Kueh so this time round, we got the Salted Bean, Durian & Green tea flavours! 😉 . As expected, their innovative Ang Ku Kuehs were just as gratifying as the classics! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 Really liked the mochi-like skin that was not overly sticky to the teeth (maybe cuz they were a tad oily 🤣) Totally didnt mind the uneven thickness (evidence that these are handmade 👏) cuz the fillings were good & generous too! 💕 . Green tea flavour was quite rich but equally sweet, which masked the astringent taste of tea. 💚 Durian was quite mild (not the real pulp kind, as expected from the price point 😂). Having the salted bean AKK was a good change in taste profile after the sweet ones! 👍🏻 . Still a delightful eat! 😋

🎶Got me looking so KUEHzy right now~ your love’s got me looking so KUEHzy right now~🎶 . Perhaps it’s really inherited from our heritage that explains my family’s love for Teochew-style kuehs like these! ❤❤❤ Nested at a corner of Nghee Huat Eating House coffeeshop at Toa Payoh Lor 5 is Hong Shan Ang Ku Kueh, a 30-year-old name selling a variety of traditional kuehs freshly made at the stall. The irresistible aroma & pretty colours of the kuehs just lures you in! 😍😍😍 . Had the Png Kueh ($1.40) as well as the classic peanut Ang Ku Kueh ($1). Donning a pretty pink coat 💕, the rice flour skin of the Png Kueh was sufficiently soft & did not have the rubbery texture. The filling was definitely the star of this kueh - a fragrant mix of savoury glutinous rice fried with dried shrimps, dried mushrooms, peanuts etc. 😋😋😋 With a little sweet sauce & chilli drizzled to enhance the overall taste, this made quite a good eat! 👍🏻 Except that I think this filling had some Chinese celery which I personally dislike. 🤣 . Their Ang Ku Kueh was really enjoyable! ✔✔✔ Albeit slightly thick in some areas (uneven distribution cuz they are all handmade), the beautiful crimson-red skin was so soft & mochi-like that it didn’t mind it at all. 👌🏻 The generous peanut filling added a good crunch & was extremely fragrant! 🤤🤤🤤 Totally my kind of snack! ❤ . Besides the traditional filling like peanuts & sweet/salted bean paste, they also have innovative fruity flavours like green tea, mango & even durian! Although Ji Xiang & Poh Cheu still ranks top on my list, this is definitely one of the better & noteworthy AKKs I’ve had! 👍🏻 . What a delightful find in the heartlands! 😋

[Preludio] - 1️⃣Elude. Blanketed underneath the white yogurt foam is sweet white beetroot, burrata, walnut crumble and dil-marinated cucumber, paired with primeur sturia caviar on the side. The result is a complex combination with a delicate sweet note. . 2️⃣When the next dish - Allude is served, we thought there was a mistake as the dish looks very similar to the first course. Replacing the yogurt form is creamy mushroom potato mousse covering the fermented mushroom, bone marrow, thyme croutons and preserved Amalifi lemon, paired with Oscietra Sturia caviar. The taste profile is leaning towards the savoury side compare to the first dish. . Find out more at https://www.sgfoodonfoot.com/2019/02/preludio-frasers-tower-fine-dining.html .

[Preludio] - The Gorbea Mountain is landscaped to look like Gorbea, the highest mountain in the Biscay and Alava provinces where Pastry Chef Elena's home city of Vitoria is located in the Basque country. The beautiful mountain scene is plated with blueberry mousse, yogurt sponge, yogurt ice cream, Idiazabel cheese, blueberries, blackberries and milk foam. What impressed me is not only the beautiful mountain view but how the savoury cheese ignited the sweetness of the dessert into a firework of flavours. .

[Preludio] - Pata Negra in a monochrome theme? It is a pork dish afterall. Smartly, the chef coats the pork with pulvarised squid ink panko bread crumbs. Cutting into it, reveals a pinkish interior that can be mistaken as a beef. When I put the tender pork in my mouth, the caramlised sweetness reminds me of our local char siew. It really surprised me with its taste profile. . Find out more at https://www.sgfoodonfoot.com/2019/02/preludio-frasers-tower-fine-dining.html .

Fragrant Tea-filled Buns The Earl Grey Bun is also a popular flavour at Slow Bakes. It comes with a beautiful thick earl grey filling bundled in an earl-grey flavoured bun. It’s also a completely vegan bread. The aroma from the tea is strong and inviting - surprised how they managed to tease out the tea flavour so well in the bun and filling. Texture of the buns here tend to be on the doughy side rather than the fluffy side, but they’re all pillowy soft. Sadly I’m not such a huge fan of the texture of the buns, but it was not bad overall especially if you like earl grey. Quite pricey for a small bun at $2.80, but it’s evident how much effort went into its making, plus it’s also organic so take that into consideration when patronising Slow Bakes.

Generous Fillings In Lovingly Baked Buns I think the Coconut Bun has been overshadowed by the other offerings at Slow Bakes. Thankfully, I spotted a lone Coconut Bun left behind at around 4pm and decided to bring it home to try it. Texture of the bun is more towards the doughy side, as is the case with the other buns here - perhaps because it’s vegan? Although coconut isn’t an exciting unique filling, it can be tricky to execute properly. I loved Slow Bakes’ rendition of it. The grated coconut strands were long and seasoned to just the right level of sweetness. The filling was juicy, and I loved how each bite released a burst of syrup (think ondeh ondeh) in your mouth. Slow Bakes also doesn’t skimp on the filling, it’s stuffed to the brim! This would probably be even more delicious if warmed up! Would consider ordering this again if the other more popular flavours weren’t available :)
