Try these kueh delivery options for a taste of tradition
Be it Teochew, Nonya, Hainanese, or Malay kueh, these traditional bite-sized snacks are always a joy to eat. In fact, they are invariably the first thing I head towards at any buffet dessert table, and always spark a feeling of nostalgia in me. In this list of handmade kueh delivery services, we’ve compiled halal options, home-based businesses, traditional confectioneries, as well as places offering kueh platters for special occasions.
From traditional confectioneries
1. One Kueh At A Time
Local gourmands and celebrity chefs have raved about the Teochew-style soon kueh sold at One Kueh At A Time. Each hand-stuffed kueh is packed with flavour, and wrapped with a delicate, silky rice flour skin. Their Classic ($16 for 10 pieces) soon kueh is filled with juicy radish chunks that burst with each chew. Go for their more contemporary flavours such as the smoky Bak Kwa ($25) and the punchy Haebi Hiam ($25). To enjoy them freshly steamed, buy their frozen sets instead and prepare them at home.
Their delivery fees range from $6 to $17 depending on your location. There is a minimum order of 10 pieces, and you’ll need to order at least two weeks in advance to secure a slot.
2. Ji Xiang Confectionery
Boasting 42 years of experience in the business, this old-school confectionery at Everton Park still makes all their ang ku kueh by hand. They started out with only two kueh flavours, the classic Peanut ($0.90) and Sweet Bean Paste ($0.90), but quickly branched out to many other flavours including Salted Bean ($0.90), Corn ($0.90), Yam ($1), and even Durian ($1.80).
Their delivery fees range from $15 to $20 depending on your location, and there’s a minimum order of 45 pieces. Delivery fees are waived if you place an order of 150 to 300 pieces. If you want to make a pre-order and pick it up at their store, the minimum order is $9.
3. Molly’s Nonya Kueh
Molly’s Nonya Kueh began operating at Simon Road in 1983 before moving to Hougang in 1992, and the 37 year-old stall has been selling traditional kueh there since. The old-school confectionery has over 80 items on their menu, ranging from sweet Banana Cake ($1) to the classic Kueh Lapis ($0.70), as well as savoury slabs of Nonya Spicy Fish Otah ($0.60).
They have a $10 flat delivery charge, and a minimum order of $50. For free delivery, place an order that exceeds $100. They deliver from Monday to Saturday, between 9am and 5pm. To get your orders fulfilled by a specific date, place your orders at least three days in advance.
4. Ah Yee’s Soon Kueh
Ah Yee’s Soon Kueh is a family business embedded with history, since the recipe and skills behind their traditional pieces had been passed down for generations. Their plump Soon Kueh ($1.40) are stuffed with bamboo shoots, turnips, carrots, minced mushrooms, and fried hae bee. For something sweet, go for their Yam Kueh ($1.40) which is filled with luscious shredded bits of pumpkin and yam.
Their kueh delivery fees and minimum orders are calculated based on your location, and they only do deliveries between 8:30am and 2:30pm, from Thursdays to Tuesdays.
5. Yoon’s Traditional Teochew Kueh
Though they’ve had many years of kueh-making experience under their belt, Yoon’s Traditional Teochew Kueh only kicked off their online business in 2016. Despite being sold on an online platform, the Teochew kueh made by the owner, Qara Yoon, and her mother are definitely rooted in their traditions.
They sell over eight types of kueh including fan-favourite Png Kueh ($20 for 10 pieces), and a rare Cikak Kueh ($20 for 10 pieces) which is like a Teochew version of ang ku kueh. For a mix of their kueh, get the Yoon’s Assortment Box ($25) which features a selection of six kueh flavours.
They offer islandwide delivery from Monday to Saturday, for a flat fee of $5. If you want your kueh order fulfilled by a specific date, it’s best to preorder at least two to three days in advance.

Bonus: Mr Ho’s Tutu Kueh
Known by the names of ‘Bendeemer Tutu Kueh‘ and ‘Mr Ho’s Tutu Kueh’, this humble stall gained its dedicated customer base mostly through word of mouth.

They have since stopped providing delivery options but you can still use this preorder form to pick up your kueh from the Bendemeer stall.
