Hubby’s breakfast #020: Teochew kueh from Kuehs And Snacks 老婶阿嬷潮州粿

Clockwise from bottom: Soon kueh (bamboo shoot), gu chai kueh (Chinese chives), png kueh (glutinous rice)

I was drawn to this shop ‘cos of its quaint Chinese name. In Teochew, 老婶 [lau sim] is “grandaunt” and 阿嬷 [ah ma] is “grandma”.

Sadly, the Teochew kueh here tasted far from what my two beloved grandmas used to make (I’m a pure Teochew!). I was hoping for the traditional, opaque-white type of dough skin, but here, it’s the mushy, translucent kind. The stuffing is rather generous, but veered towards the bland side, and could be more fragrant.

To compare, I think those from Fatt Soon Kueh were tastier and more value-for-money.

Besides these regular-sized Teochew kueh, Kuehs And Snacks also sell bite-sized, mini versions. Ang ku kuehs and steamed radish, yam, and pumpkin cakes are also available.

Pricing for above kueh: soon kueh 笋粿 (S$0.70), gu chai kueh 韭菜粿 (S$0.80), png kueh 糯米粿 (S$0.90).

    Wow, the gu chai kueh looks really good. In fact, that is one good-looking variety dish. I also happen to love Teochew kueh as well. Cheers and happy eating! You have a nice blog going on here.
