Supply of kuehs was low when I reached.

Ondeh Ondeh:
There was no more ondeh ondeh on display when I reached. But, I just checked with them... Just in case.
And I was told there were 2 pieces left!

Immediately, I replied that I wanted them! Oh yes!

Cut the long story short, Xing Xing ondeh ondeh is good but I wish the gula melaka used was more rich. Good but not the best. Compared to Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry, Galicer's ondeh ondeh is better as it has a slightly more complex flavour profile.

Steamed Tapioca Kueh:
Xing Xing steamed tapioca cake (蒸木薯糕) is not the cloyingly rich/ sweet type and that's one reason why I love their steamed tapioca cake! Their tapioca kueh has a lesser amount of coconut milk, eggs & sugar and I can definitely taste more of the tapioca. The richness of the kueh is light.

The kueh is soft, moist, bouncy, and subtly sweet.
Also, it is coated with salty fresh grated coconut that gave a twinge of saltiness to the kueh.

In fact, it is by far, the best steamed tapioca cake I have tried!!!

The kueh literally melted in my mouth. I can seriously eat a box of these and not be surfeited.

This steamed tapioca cake alone is worth my trip to Maxwell Food Centre today. And this alone, can make me come all the way back again. It is that good.

Interestingly, I had some leftover tapioca kueh that I kept in the refrigerator and steamed to (re-)heat them the following night. They were still good, but seem to taste sweeter.
