Reviews of good food at Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry

My Chinese New Year was a mix of old routines (visitations and Miranda’s legendary 50cent/pc pineapple tarts) and small new experiences (inviting friends without family in SG over to enjoy CNY dinners in our cozy home).
One of the latter would be these authentic kueh lapis that makes our usual favourite of bengawan solo kueh lapis a mistake. We have officially switched camps to Galicier’s version- fragrant and authentic because of the prominent spiced and cinnamon flavors. Having traditionally Asian cake- kueh in front of the TV at night (i.e. seizing the holiday season for a movie marathon) was very nice but back to school!

Soft and fragrant wrap with white coconut mixed with sesame seed. Never tried this version before but I kinda do prefer this over the traditional palm sugar type. Tastes cleaner and lighter.

This piece of gorgeous is superb 👍🏼 Shredded white coconut laid on top of this super thin pandan skin and rolled it up. I like the taste of the coconut, fragance yet moist but is not those very wet-y kind 😂 No wonder this is one of their signature in store!

Super delicious Ondeh Ondeh. Fresh from the kitchen, bouncy like it should be, & not too sweet. Fairly long queues during lunch hour, but worth it.

(Nespresso coffee & Watsons tissue paper not included.)

My type of afternoon tea. No I don't have peranakan blood in me, but I really love traditional nyonya cuisine especially their kuehs! Tiong Bahru Galicier is the place to fix my cravings, and it brings back memories of my HSA days too.

Used to be a fan of Kueh Lapis (as in 九層糕) as a kid but from the first time I tried the Kueh Dadar here, it has stayed on top of my favorite nyonya kuehs list since then. White fragrant shredded coconut wrapped unusually with thin pandan-infused crepe, but yet moist, as you taste the drizzle of gula melaka. Btw I was so lucky to be the last person to get their kueh dadars even though I was only in the middle of the queue! That shows how popular it is, because people in front of me were buying in 10s, and left the last 3 for me. Haha.

Another favorite: Lemper udang, a kueh wrapped in banana leaf and made with glutinous rice dyed purplish blue with the butterfly pea flower. It contains savory and slightly spicy dried shrimp.

Last but not least, kueh salat, a combination of Pandan kaya and glutinous rice. Not a fan of it, but it's for my sister who's a big fan.

Enjoying mornings like this. And the kueh dar-dar was so good. Soft skin encasing fresh white grated coconut with just a little gula melaka. Very well balanced so it's aren't too sweet.

For a wholly Peranakan teatime experience, visit this Tiong Bahru stalwart for their Nonya kueh. The Straits Chinese have combined and transformed simple ingredients like glutinous rice, coconut milk and sugar into dainty, delicate and delicious sweet snacks. While Malay food stalls and chain bakeries sometimes offer these snacks, nothing beats the authentic and time-honoured flavours from this family-run establishment. You're likely to be overwhelmed by the selection, so here's what you should get — Kueh Kosui ($0.70), steamed rice cakes coated in desiccated coconut; Kueh Dadar ($0.80), pandan-flavoured crepes encasing coconut sweetened with gula Melaka; Putu Ayu ($3.80 for five), steamed cakes with grated coconut and gula Melaka; and Ondeh Ondeh ($0.60 each); glutinous rice balls holding a delicate center of gula Melaka syrup. Most of the snacks are bite-sized and affordable so if in doubt, try it.

These are really great ondeh ondeh because they are juicy and they burst in your mouth!

I especially love their putu ayu and kueh dardar because the coconut and pandan are so fragrant.

Never had Kueh Dar-Dar before but guess this was a pretty good place to start (tho le father said it wasn't fragrant enough) But at only $0.80 per piece, it's quite hard to say no to this one. Definitely a must try for all those foodies in search of traditional delicacies like me!!

Any trip to Tiong Bahru (for me) would never be complete without grabbing some Kueh from Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry. Still got their Kueh Ambon which I absolutely love, but also tried their Kueh Kosui this time; very soft Gula Melaka Kueh that doesn't stick to the teeth with a mellow sweetness with desiccated coconut sprinkled all over — not regretting having this one any bit.

Favourite place for kuehs and their kueh ambon & ondeh ondeh is one of the best. Missing the putu ayu, no luck with getting it recently ☹️️

Moist, bouncy and sweet potato and brown sugar flavoured, how can I resist?! Yet another overshadowed pastry here with all the other options available. Because they are so airy, they seem light, but reveal a much more denser texture when bitten. Chinese version of muffins which is a lot healthier (I think, or I hope) while not compromising on flavours.

True happiness is when you walk out of Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry on a Saturday morning with 7 boxes full of kuehs. Couldn't resist getting as many as I could get my hands on since these cost on average a dollar each. Very reasonably priced for good quality kuehs, where if you take a peep to the back of the counter you can see people at hard work, churning out new counters of kuehs. Here we have: coconut tarts, (my absolute favourite, not sure why this isn't crazily raved over yet tbh) kueh ambon and steamed tapioca. Wanted to get ondeh ondeh but they are only available in the afternoon, so I'll have to make a trip down another day! Also, the kuehs aren't too sweet, even my diabetic Grandmother could enjoy some!

Pictured here are their really famous kueh dadar which are stuffed full with fresh white coconut shreds that are so moist! On the left was their light cake-textured Putu Ayu which was wonderfully bouncy, and also my sister's favourite kueh. This is why I can buy over 40 dollars worth of kuehs and gobble them down all in a matter of minutes. The kuehs here are fresh and do not contains any preservatives which means they have to be eaten in 1 day, as overnight refrigeration spoils the coconut milk. Not that I mind, I will be willing to inhale a bucket load of kuehs anytime, any day!
