While I was waiting for my order, I was mesmerised by the aroma of the tofu puffs barbecuing over charcoal. The uncle was patiently flipping the puffs and fritters to ensure every side was well grilled to crisp. I am impressed because such traditional way of preparing tow kwar pop is really rare these days. Most if not all rojak stalls I have visited only use electric grill or oven to crisp their fritters and puffs to save time and manpower so I really salute this stall for doing it the old school way.At $3, the tow kwar pop were served with accompaniments of sliced cucumbers, turnip, red apple and pineapple just like a rojak. The portion size was good enough for sharing between 2 persons. Though there wasn’t a queue when I was there and I had to wait quite long for my order, I thought it was still worth the time because the tow kwar pop were served fresh, hot and crispy. I liked that the puffs weren’t soaked completely in the shrimp paste so they remained crispy to the last bite. With extra shrimp paste and chilli sauce plated separately, we could just dip each cube into the respective sauces whenever we wanted to. The shrimp paste was rich and fragrant but not overly salty.Every tofu puff was stuffed with cucumber and bean sports that were blanched perfectly so you’d get this crunch from the vegetables with every bite. The ground peanut that was sprinkled on top complemented the sauce very well, giving it a lovely nutty flavour.Overall, this was an excellent plate of tow kwar pop. Definitely one of the best I’ve had. This is a must try if you come to Tiong Bahru Market.

The rojak sold here is out of the norm. The ingredients are not all mixed together with the sauce instead you are meant to dip them in the sauce. I had a Rojak - $5 to share and must admit I much prefer the normal style of sauce where the sauce clings to all parts of the ingredients instead of just the part that you dip it in. Worth a try though, I guess. continue reading

I love the name of this stall - Tow Kwar Pop. As a fan of rojak and tau kwar bao, I will always order this dish whenever I see it to satisfy my craving. As there's only 2 uncles in the stall (one taking order and the other doing the mixing of the rojak, one have to be patient for good food if there's a queue. I waited for quick awhile before the uncle presented the dish to me. Ordered a set of rojak and tow kwar pao, the you tiao taste really crispy! The tow kwar pao is stuff with cucumber and beansprout and it tasted super refreshing. The black rojak sauce used is not too sweet and by adding the peanut does make it taste even better. If you are a fan of dried cuttlefish and century egg, you might also want to add in them for the extra flavor! continue reading

I must have been here so many times since I first "discovered" this little gem hiding at one corner of tiong bahru hawker centre. This time, I got my friend to share it together with me, and she was a convert as well. There is just something very addictive about its rojak when ate together with its black sauce and chilli. I loved popping the whole tow kwar into my mouth after dipping it into the chilli. The whole fusion of tastes - sweet, salty and spicy - just explodes in your mouth. I can never get enough of this! continue reading
