8 Best Popiah Places in Singapore
Although popiah is commonly found in Singapore, it is often overshadowed by more popular local fare such as sliced fish soup, chicken rice and hokkien mee. Many ingredients go into making the popiah filling – bangkuang (turnip), sweet sauce, bean sprouts and lettuce, to name a few. These ingredients are then wrapped in a paper-thin popiah skin, sliced and served. Whether you’re looking for the perfect mid-afternoon snack or DIY popiah sets for some family fun, we’ve got you covered with the 8 Best Popiah Places in Singapore, including one halal option!

1. Kway Guan Huat Joo Chiat Original Popiah & Kueh Pie Tee

”Kway
Given that they have been making popiah skin for over 70 years, it is no wonder that Kway Guan Huat Joo Chiat Original Popiah & Kueh Pie Tee has one of the best handmade popiah skin in Singapore. Generous with fillings, popiah here is sold basic ($2) and premium ($3.50); the latter comes with prawn and eggs. They also offer DIY Standard and Vegetarian Popiah Sets, which will make about 15 to 20 popiah rolls each.

2. My Cosy Corner

 My Cosy Corner's Popiah
Tucked in Coronation Plaza, My Cosy Corner is a hidden gem for all popiah lovers. My Cosy Corner serves authentic Nyonya style cuisine and their popiah ($2.20) is one of the signature items on the menu. What makes theirs so special, is the addition of crispy bits made from parboiled rice in generous amounts, giving the fresh spring roll that extra oomph factor. DIY Popiah sets are also available, with a minimum order of 30 pieces of popiah. Orders must be placed 2 days in advance.

3. Good Chance Popiah Eating House

Good Chance Popiah
Opened since 1977, Good Chance Popiah Eating House has spanned three generations, selling Hokkien popiah at a slightly steeper price. The restaurant serves only DIY Popiah instead of the conventional pre-wrapped popiah, priced at 4 rolls for $16.80, 12 for $42.80 and 18 for $59.80. A piping hot claypot of popiah filling – turnip, cabbage, carrot, long beans, bamboo shoots, garlic and shrimps – is served alongside popiah skin and other condiments. Additional toppings of Chinese sausage, prawns and crab meat ($5.80/$7.80/$7.80) are available as well.

Fortune Food started off as a small hawker stall at Geylang Bahru Hawker Centre and has grown to more than 10 outlets islandwide. They pride themselves on making their fresh popiah skin daily, which is what makes their popiah skin so light and delicate. Get their pre-wrapped popiah ($1.40-$2), filled with turnip, carrot, sweet sauce and sambal chilli, among others. Their DIY Popiah Set ($24) makes 15 rolls. Delivery only for orders above $70.

5. Qi Ji

Qi Ji Popiah
Established since 1984, Qi Ji, formerly known as Hock Heng, successfully rebranded itself to become one of the few Halal-certified popiah eateries in Singapore. Everything is made in-house, including their think and chewy popiah skin. Get their regular popiah ($2) or their prawn popiah($2.50) if you like seafood. Unlike most eateries, they use golden crispy bits instead of peanuts to give the popiah filling and extra crunch and fragrance. They also provide catering and delivery, with a 3-day advance order.

6. Old Long House Popiah

Old Long House Popiah
For 85 years, Old Long House Popiah has been selling popiah using their secret recipe, which contains no MSG, artificial colourings, preservatives, pork or lard. The thin and moist handmade popiah skin complements the popiah filling perfectly. Be prepared to pay slightly more for their handmade popiah skin, as compared to cheaper machine-made ones. And whilst you can only enjoy pre-wrapped popiah ($1.50) here, DIY Popiah Sets are available for self-collection or deliveries. Note: Old Long House Popiah is open from 6am - 2pm and closed every Monday, unless it is a public holiday.

7. Glory Catering

Glory Catering Popiah
Specialising in Nonya cuisine, the way Glory Catering makes their popiah is different. Unlike Hokkien popiah, they use freshly ground chilli instead of chilli sauce. And instead of a dough mixture, their popiah skin is made using an egg batter. Accompanied with an abundant serving of popiah filling, their popiah ($2.50) is served piping hot.
