Chance upon this Teochew snack place near to Alexandra Food Centre and they actually famous for their snacks. Decided to get some of them and they was surprisingly good and chewy. You shouldn’t miss out buying some if you are here.

Date visited: 12/5/2018 (Sat, 12.45pm)

I managed to buy the last box of soon kueh (only 3 left in box).

Soon kueh was very delicious. Skin was really soft, not too thick, and slightly chewy - not the translucent/ slightly transparent Hakka-type of skin that I don't like. Turnip filling (aka mang guang filling) was fantastic; fragrant and flavourful. Really love their soon kueh! It is something I will buy again.
Wish there's more filling though. But at $1.20 per handmade soon kueh, I'm not complaining.

The box of mini ang ku kueh was ok. Skin was soft with a good QQ consistency. Out of the assortment of flavours I got, I actually prefer the coconut filling one; more flavourful than the rest. Sweet mung bean was normal, but then again, sweet mung bean filling was never my favourite. I usually love anything yam-related though(anything with Orh Nee). But the yam one was like the sweet mung bean one; it was actually difficult to tell the filling apart from the skin. Maybe I should have gotten the normal-sized ones.

The kuehs are good to keep for 2 days. If you can't finish them on the day you bought them, in the evening, keep them in the fridge and you can still enjoy them the following day (the last day you should eat them).

Preferred the Soon Kueh more as it was rare to find it these days and tasted less raw than the other one.

Got these from a super traditional-looking store, manned by the cutest old uncles and aunties (who btw are pretty good salesmen; just imagine how your grandma will coerce you into eating more, but instead these oldies are making you buy more goodies). Didn’t get to try them cos I got them for my family, but my mother said it’s 软到离谱 (so soft it’s a crime).

This shop may not catch your eye at all due to its dim lighting, lack of displays, and unwelcoming vibes. But take the leap of faith to walk through the glass door and you'll be greeted by the friendly granny or grandpa with an array of homemade kuehs in the most unfanciful trays and on the most ordinary-looking tables.

The granny wakes up in the wee hours of the day just to prepare all the kuehs (with the help of her co-workers) in time for her shop opening at 8am. Most of the common kuehs can be found here and I've picked the following: (clockwise starting top left) soon kueh #1 (filled with turnips), chives kueh, soon kueh #2 (filled with bamboo shoots), and yam kueh. They all have the normal-sized versions but I love how the mini ones allow you to sample different flavours without making you too full for tea. The skin is soft and the fillings are flavourful, with my favourite being the yam kueh for having savoury and chunky yam and the least favourite being soon kueh #2 (as I personally prefer turnips to bamboo shoots).

These kueh may not be the cheapest (4 boxes of these kuehs with 5 pieces each cost me around $16), but I'm giving it up to them for the quality and effort put into each kueh. Heritage foods like these that still taste good and made by hand are hard to come by, and I'm glad to savour them before they're gone forever.
