Simply the best I've eaten. Every tapioca cake out there brainwashes you to think it can't be soft. The one here bites off so easily. The fragrance and the grated coconut make it so addictive. I never knew I could stomach so many tapioca cakes!

Instead of the signature steamed tapioca cake, my go-to at Xing Xing/ Heng Heng has always been their Kueh Kosui (60 cents). A family favourite, I would snag a box of 10 whenever I am in the area. Firstly, the price is, of course, really affordable. The kueh is uber soft and bouncy, accompanied by a slight crunch from the coconut shavings. And apart from the lovely texture, the taste is also very well-balanced where you get the distinct sweetness of the gula melaka without it being cloying at all.

The kueh lapis sagu was not bad, had a QQ consistency but didn't stick to my teeth. I wouldn't say it wowed me like the steamed tapioca kueh/ kueh kosui though. The layers/ slices could have been a little thinner.

Like the steamed tapioca cake, the kueh kosui is soft, bouncy, and aromatic, but has a stickier texture. The taste of the kueh kosui is pepped up with the mellow sweetness yet distinct flavour of the gula melaka. There is a slight hint of caramel in the taste of the kueh kosui. I also like that this kueh is sufficiently sweet without being cloying.

Like its steamed tapioca cake, Xing Xing kueh kosui was also coated with salty fresh grated coconut. Besides giving it a twinge of saltiness, the grated coconut also gave an extra texture to it.

I didn't think that I would order the kueh kosui, because I'm just not a fan of it. However, I decided to buy just two purely because of the rave reviews on Xing Xing's kueh kosui. I had no expectations partly because I really didn't think I was gonna like it.

But I was wowed! I am a changed person. I love it when my attitude towards/ perception of a certain food is changed like that. In a snap, or should I say, in one bite.
It suddenly dawned on me that it wasn't that I didn't like kueh kosui, but I just haven't tried a kueh kosui that I like.

This is a really really well-made kueh.

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.

Finally managed to get my hands on this after umpteen times here cause they're always sold out so quickly! Got a box of tapioca kueh for my popz cause he's a fan of them. These kuehs were Super soft and literally melt in your mouth. Not featured here is their Kueh Kosui, which was equally amazing. Please go get yourself a piece or 2 if you're nearby!
