Original, both in the sense that current stall owner Ms Tan’s late father was the one who invented tutu kueh, and that this is the traditional filling of coconut (they now have flavours like chocolate to appeal to the younger generation)

#26 of Top 50 World Street Food Masters

Just looking at those overwhelmed spaces filled with accolades makes this place promising; but be prepared to wait awhile for a premium “aircon” environment price of tu tu kuehs.
As your eyes wander around all the text surrounding the main lady owner who dexterously steams your rice cakes on the spot; you quickly learn from a history write up that this stall was almost the first ever to introduce tu tu kuehs in Singapore. I’ll leave other interesting facts to your reading but these are by far the most “voluptuous” tu tu kuehs I’ve had; for the lack of a better description but the plump white rice cake will lay evidence. IMHO worth the price especially for the claimed legacy it embodies.

3rd-generation hawker Jacky of "Tan's Tu Tu Coconut Cake" shared that his grandfather started the business back in the 1930's. When the government moved food-sellers off the streets in the 1970's, he settled in at Havelock Food Centre.
When I was there today, I saw Jacky and his aunt running the stall. The queue of customers wasn't too long but because the "tu tu kuehs" are made by hand, it does require time. I was told my order would take about 40 mins to be ready, so I shared a bowl of laksa with my mum while waiting. In the end, I got mine after less than half an hour.
Besides the traditional coconut and ground peanut versions, I decided to try the new chocolate one as well. They all turned out to be delightful, mostly because the steamed flour part was a lovely foil to the fillings.
My fave would be the chocolate (I blame it on the kid in me 😜) but seriously, the semi-sweet chocolate chips which had melted into a slightly gooey state, proved to be a match made in heaven with the moist, fall-apart-soft flour.
In case you're keen to try the kuehs for yourself, do note the Havelock stall is open between 12noon and 3pm daily except for Thursday and Sunday.

Look at these babies.
There're innocent, white, clean, plain and slightly chewy ..
Pure indulgence indeed 😁
