Second time having Galicier's kuehs! My favs are the kueh dardar ($0.80/piece) - really soft chewy skin wrapped around joosy coconut shreds (you can really feel the juice oozing out as you bite into it); and kueh kosui ($0.80) - super soft and kinda melt in your mouth, with a nice coffee flavour. Kueh salat ($1.10) was decent but I've had better, while the tapioca cake ($0.70) was a bit too firm/coarse for my liking. Tried kueh ambon/honeycomb cake ($1.40) for the first time, and while it was interesting it wouldn't be my first choice of kuehs to buy. It has a subtle lemongrass(?) taste and wasn't very sweet, but kinda oily. Nice honeycomb structure tho!

Love this!! Have been eating this since young. Best sar kei ma in Singapore and maybe even Malaysia - I haven’t found another place that makes it so crunchy and sticky. Most of the meh ones taste a bit laohong, I don’t bother with those. This is pretty sweet because it’s fried flour stirred in maltose, so I eat tiny morsels at a time but still my fav :)

The crust is so meh :( Okay they’re quite generous with the filling, and even though I can taste the salted bean flavour, there was not much fragrance. It’s good that it’s not too salty tho, since they give a lot of filling. Tasted nicer towards the end but my initial thought was okay I’m never getting this again. My dad told me today that he liked it?? Maybe because it’s pretty light in flavour, doesn’t taste too sinful

One of my favourite places for minjiangkueh as I love how chewy theirs are!

Salted bean had a slight roasty taste, rather interesting. I think they’re the only ones doing salted bean mjk. Pandan paste had a prominent pandan taste, and the red bean one was of an average sweetness. Both pastes were rather smooth. Found the black sesame a little too heavy for my liking.

Was gifted a box of these goodies! Was so happy receiving them :)

- Lao po bing: my favourite since I was a kid! I maintain that they have the best laopobings. The wintermelon filling is very soft and chewy, mildly sweet and goes so well with the flaky pastry!
- Pineapple pastry: first time trying this and was pleasantly surprised. It’s similar to a laopobing, but with a pineapple fragrance. Could see the pineapple fibres, so I don’t think flavouring was used. My family enjoyed this a lot!
- Red bean pastry: quite a dense paste, different from what you’ll find in breads. Decent but not my fav.
- Salted bean pastry: the filling was a smooth paste, unlike tausarpiah filling which is crumbly. Not bad!
- Century egg & salted egg: these two pastries are the most average ones in the box. They paired the egg with sweet bean paste, and while it’s decent it’s just not my cup of tea (we generally don’t eat century egg / salted egg).

Tldr - must buys: laopobing, pineapple pastry. Their flaky pastry isn’t oily or buttery, so it doesn’t feel too heavy, great for a light snack :)

One of my favourite egg tarts in SG! Their egg tarts consist of a slightly sweet, silky egg custard, with a somewhat crisp flaky shell. It wasn't too rich/heavy as the wasn't super buttery, but shiok enough to be a good treat.

If you didn’t get a fresh-from-the-oven one, reheating it will do the trick!

This was super good! It’s extra nice when it’s fresh from the oven - you can tell because it’s warm to the touch. The combination of the flaky, crunchy crust + savoury sweet filling is so satisfying. I like that the filling doesn’t stick to your teeth, and has a nice balance of flavours.

Am a big fan of the tausarpiah ($8 for 10 pieces) here! A fresh batch from the oven was available, and they were warm and so flaky. The sweet TSP was pleasantly sweet, with a green bean paste that wasn’t grainy. The salty one was also great - the crumbly salty filling was very delicious.

The green bean cake ($2.50) was enjoyable - it’s a childhood favourite! However, the sachima ($3) is not as crisp as I would have liked.
