Perhaps itโ€™s really inherited from our heritage that explains my familyโ€™s love for Teochew-style kuehs like these! โคโคโค 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! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
.
Had the Png Kueh ($1.40) as well as the classic peanut Ang Ku Kueh ($1). Donning a pretty pink coat ๐Ÿ’•, 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. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ With a little sweet sauce & chilli drizzled to enhance the overall taste, this made quite a good eat! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Except that I think this filling had some Chinese celery which I personally dislike. ๐Ÿคฃ
.
Their Ang Ku Kueh was really enjoyable! โœ”โœ”โœ” 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 didnโ€™t mind it at all. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป The generous peanut filling added a good crunch & was extremely fragrant! ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค Totally my kind of snack! โค
.
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 Iโ€™ve had! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
.
What a delightful find in the heartlands! ๐Ÿ˜‹
