Haig Road Putu Piring: World-Famous Putu Pirung Stall Open Since 1985

30th December 2022

Netflix-famous stall Haig Road Putu Piring

Singapore’s food scene is full of treasures, but only a few have received the level of global acclaim Haig Road Putu Piring has. The humble eatery has always been known to Singaporeans as the de facto place to get their hands on the traditional Malay dessert outside of pasar malams. Overnight, however, the stall became a global name thanks to its feature on Netflix’s Street Food Asia along with names such as Keng Eng Kee, Master Tang’s Wonton Noodle, and Sin Kee Chicken Rice.

The business is currently run by Nooraisha Hashim, who inherited the putu piring recipe the stall is known best for from her great-great-grandmother, who ran a roadside stall. The recipe has been in the family since the 1930s, and has evolved to suit modern preferences.

The stall currently has seven outlets islandwide—including Jewel Changi, Northpoint, and East Village—though the flagship in the Geylang Serai Food Centre remains its most well-known, aside from their OG Haig Road flagship. Haig Road Putu Piring also does islandwide delivery.

Diners can swing by to get their hands on a range of putu piring flavours, as well as other Malay snacks and drinks, including takeaway portions of keropok, crackers, tarts, cookies, and rojak.

The original Gula Melaka Putu Piring ($4 for four pieces) is what the stall is best known for.

The steamed rice flour cake is thin but still fluffy, harbouring a gooey gula melaka filling.

If you prefer your filling to have more bite, get the Brown Coconut Putu Piring ($4.50 for four pieces), where a house-made grated coconut filling is laced with gula melaka.

The Durian Putu Piring ($5.50 for four pieces) is a sleeper hit, with an oozy, bittersweet durian custard in the middle.

For the kids, there’s the Chocolate Putu Piring ($4.70 for four pieces), packed with chocolate chips that melt when the kueh is steamed. 

Recently, the eatery also launched an all-new Peanut offering ($4.70 for four pieces), packed with ground peanuts. Unlike the Chinese-style kueh tutu with peanuts, this filling here is less powdery, and a lot more like chunky peanut butter.

All servings come with a side of lightly salted grated coconut too.
