Fans of putu piring will have heard of Haig Road Putu Piring. Around for over 80 years, the hawker stall has opened their first mall outlet at East Village, a short walk away from Simpang Bedok.
This air-conditioned eatery will offer more unique creations, unlike the OG stall in Haig Road Market & Food Centre, which only serves the traditional gula melaka-filled putu piring.

Look forward to toothsome treats such as the Chocolate ($3.70 for four pieces), featuring mini chocolate chips within the soft rice cakes. As it gets steamed, the chocolate melts to an oozy consistency, making it super decadent. It’s not too sweet too, which is a major plus.
If you are on #TeamDurian, the Durian ($4.20 for four pieces) is a must-get. Created for this year’s Singapore Heritage Festival, the putu piring is filled with D24 durian paste that’s slowly cooked in gula melaka. It has a subtle pungency, followed by a mellow sweetness.
They also offer the nonya kueh version of Coconut ($3.50 for four pieces). Boasting freshly grated coconuts, the filling is moist and full of flavour, pairing well with the warm steam cakes.

The putu piring here are all served in white boxes instead of brown food wrappers, making it easier to eat them on the go.
Putu piring is not the only thing on the menu. There’s also rojak from $4, which comes with you tiao and tau pok. An additional $2 is required if you want fruits.
They are also expecting to serve drinks such as tea and chendol in the future, once the stall has gotten into the groove of things.
