Probably my most time consuming blogpost yet. 5 cake shops from the 60s #omysba2013 #sgfood #si…
Fans of nonya cakes have to be careful stepping into Tiong Bahru Galicier. It sells so many old-fashioned kueh you would feel like buying the entire shop! Getting to know their products is an excellent food history lesson! Their variety include the orange Pandan Tapioca Cake (60 cents), Ondeh Ondeh (60 cents), Kueh Kosoi (70 cents), Kueh Ambon honeycomb cake ($1.20) and Kueh Salat (90 cents). I must confess that I had never seen or tried a Lemper Udang ($1.20) until recently – a glutinous rice roll filled with spicy dried shrimp wrapped in a banana leaf. This is like nonya sushi meets bak zhang, and is so yummy being savoury and sweet at the same time.
