Tiong Bahru market is home to some of the best of Singaporean food, such as Hainanese Curry Rice, local desserts such as Cheng Tng and Ice Kacang, as well as Fishball Mee and wait for it ....Chee Kueh! This nondescript stall 'Jian Bo Shui Kueh' serves up the best chee kueh in Singapore (in my opinion), defeating other hot favourites such as Bedok Chee Kueh at Chong Pang.$1.80 will you 6 delicious pieces of chee kueh (pardon the messy photo -it looks disorganised and horrible, but tastes way bett
$1.80 will you 6 delicious pieces of chee kueh (pardon the messy photo -it looks disorganised and horrible, but tastes way better than it looks!) The chee kueh is firm yet soft and fluffy. It does not disintegrate easily, or is it mushy at the edges. The best part of this is that it isnt overly oily, and it does not soak the packaging its in. All that aside... the radish is HEAVENLY. It's not overly salty, and you can feast your eyes on its deep brown color which just looks so goooood! It also provides a delicious crunchy texture that compliments the soft, warm chee kueh. Words cannot express how good this is so do yourself a favour and try it for yourself!
Ps: The chilli is good too, but they tend to give just a meagre dollop -ask for more if you are a real chilli fan!
Other than chee kueh, this stall also sells Soon Kueh, Orh Kway (Yam cake) and Chee Cheong Fun (didn't manage to catch the individual prices). The soon kueh is also highly recommended, the skin isn't too thick, and it holds its shape when you cut it. The turnip is also flavoursome and retains some of its crunchiness The chee cheong fun is smooth, not sticky, and goes well with the sweet sauce. The yam cake was a bit starchy/flourry for our liking and we would have liked more yam taste.
1. Try the chee kueh, ask for lots of chilli.
2. Order a plate of chee cheong fun to share.
3. Buy the box of soon kueh (comes in a plastic packet of 4) to bring home.
5. You will not regret this!
