Hubby’s breakfast #027: Chwee kueh from New Golden Chwee Kway 黃金水粿

This was Tuesday’s breakfast, but I only had time to post it today. On Monday, I had lunch at Golden Mile Food Centre. Just as I was fretting over next day’s breakfast (very tired of eating bread again!), I stumbled upon this chwee kueh stall.

And so I bought 10 pieces (S$3.00) of chwee kueh for takeaway, with the chai poh (萝卜干/salted radish) and chilli sauce separately packed.

Compared to other chwee kuehs I’ve bought, the rice cakes here seem to have a higher proportion of rice flour to water. They’re more opaque and slightly firmer than Jian Bo Shui Kueh‘s. But the texture is still smooth and tender. The taste is rather old-school. I like!

What I don’t really like is the topping. It’s a bit too fine and soft for my preference. Could also be more fragrant with extra shallot and garlic. But hubby likes that it’s not too salty.

Now I remember why we don’t often have chwee kueh for breakfast. They’re mini grease bombs!
