Jalan Kukoh Teochew Kueh – Traditional Handmade Snacks at $1!
I travel around the island frequently in search of good hawker food but it is my first time at Kukoh 21 Food Centre. In fact, I didn’t know about its existence till today. We were there to try a new stall but were more intrigued by Jalan Kukoh Teochew Kueh because of the long queue.
Mdm Loh and her brother run the stall together. Their grandmother sold kueh in a market in Johor Bahru before the family moved to Singapore. Ever since then, their mother carried on the business in a pushcart in Jalan Kukoh and the siblings started helping out at a young age.
Individually hand-made, each kueh is the result of a long and tedious process. It is advisable for you to call and order beforehand to avoid disappointment. We were lucky on our day of visit because they still have a few flavours left.
The steamed chives dumpling ($1) is juicy and savoury with finely-cut chives and dried shrimps. The milky white skin is so soft and resilient. The soon kueh ($1) is another hot favourite. Moist and flavourful, the kueh is filled with ingredients to bursting point .
I like the round yam kueh most ($1) as the filling is most fragrant. There is a lovely aroma of shallot oil in the filling. The shredded yam is soft, tasty and brimming with sweetness. It’s best paired with their chilli sauce and black sweet sauce.
