Where to buy Nyonya kueh in Singapore 

There’s no denying Singaporeans’ love for Nyonya kueh. These eye-catching treats, from the bright red ang ku kueh to traditional ondeh ondeh, make regular appearances during breakfasts, tea time and, of course, celebrations since young. Finding a good one, however, is no easy task. But we’ve done the hard work for you. Here are 14 bakeries, cafes and online shops to check out for when the kueh craving strikes.

1. HarriAnns Nonya Table


HarriAnns Nonya Table is a family-run business that dates back to the 1940s. Today, they have five outlets across the island, including Tiong Bahru Food Centre. Priced at $3.80 for a box of six, their Ondeh Ondeh isn’t exactly the cheapest out there, but the quality is consistently good. In fact, we ranked them fourth on our best ondeh ondeh list! Each round is packed with molten palm sugar and crunchy gula melaka bits in the centre. They also have Kueh Kosui ($4.50), Rainbow Lapis ($1.40), and Kueh Salat ($1.40). Do note that prices differ depending on the outlet.

What started out as a small home-based operation has become one of Singapore’s institutions for Nyonya kueh. Lek Lim Nyonya Cake Confectionery started in 1968 delivering kueh straight to homes, before finally opening shop in 1979. It remains at the same location today, with third-generation owner Gavin Sing at the helm. They’re known for their Ang Ku Kueh ($0.95), with its thin, chewy skin, and fragrant green paste filling. They also have a Yam Ang Ku Kueh ($1.25) for those who love orh nee desserts. There’s also the Kotoh Ubi ($0.75), where mashed tapioca is soaked generously in gula melaka.

Address: 84 Bedok North Street 4, #01-21, Singapore 460084
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 5am to 5pm, Sun 5am to 2pm

3. Molly’s Nyonya Kueh


Going to Molly’s Nyonya Kueh feels like you’ve just entered grandma’s home. The staff are friendly—be it the husband-and-wife duo that opened the store back in 1983 or their children that now run it—and are ever-ready to take you through the myriad selection of kueh, bao, and rice dumplings. Prices are kept affordable here, too. For example, a Bean Ang Ku Kueh goes for just $0.60 a pop, or $2.80 for five. Another underrated item is their golf ball-sized Ondeh Ondeh ($0.90), packed with shredded coconut that’s cooked in gula melaka.

If you have space for only one thing at Borobudur Snacks Shop, make it their Ang Ku Kueh ($1). Coming in a variety of flavours including salted mung bean and yam, they’ve garnered a loyal following thanks to the kueh’s thin skin and ample filling. Some say theirs is the chunkiest ang ku kueh in Singapore. They also sell Ondeh Ondeh, Kueh Lapis, and a melt-in-your-mouth Durian Ambon.

5. Bengawan Solo


Bengawan Solo is another stalwart in the kueh scene—they’re probably the largest homegrown kueh chain in Singapore! Priced at $4.20, their Ondeh Ondeh is by no means cheap, but you get six rounds of soft and bouncy pandan-spiked balls, filled with a rich and decadent gula melaka centre. Their Ongol Ubi ($1.50) AKA steamed cassava cake coated with shredded coconut, is another crowd favourite. Besides kueh, Bengawan Solo does a mean pandan chiffon cake, too!

6. Lina Confectionery


You’ll have to come early if you want a taste of Lina Confectionery’s kueh. They have only one display case, and they will call it a day once everything is sold out. Highlights include their Ang Ku Kueh ($1.20), filled with yam or peanut, and Kueh Kosui ($2.60): gula melaka-infused kueh with a soft and wobbly texture. Their highly rated Bursting Onde-Onde ($2.60) is another must-try; these chewy green balls come with a generous amount of palm sugar filling within.

Clan Cafe Kueh Salat

Previously, MRS KUEH’s Kueh Salat could only be enjoyed at the swanky Clan Café. Thankfully, chef Maureen Nguee has decided to open an e-commerce shop. Dessert fiends can now get their hands on it and opt for pickup at YWCA Fort Canning.

Maureen painstakingly makes each cake herself, hence the advance order of four days. Fresh pandan juice and coconut milk are used to create a thick kaya custard, in lieu of the standard pandan layer, adding a luscious touch to the hand-stained butterfly pea-dyed glutinous rice. It’s available in a handful of sizes, including a seven-inch round ($56) or loaf ($40). 

Address: 6 Fort Canning Road, #01-02 YWCA Fort Canning, Singapore 179494
Opening hours: Tue-Sun 12pm to 5pm

8. Makko Teck Neo

Makko Teck Neo is named after Madam Peck Teck Neo, the lovely Peranakan auntie who is often found behind the counter of this family-run cafe. When Madam Peck opened shop in 2008, she already had a loyal following of customers for her pineapple tarts, which she sold during Chinese New Year since the 1980s. Must-tries include their Ondeh Ondeh ($3): six mini pandan balls with a sweet gula melaka filling. You’ll also find boxes of Kueh Salat ($3) and Dadar ($3) on display, alongside Rempah Udang ($2.80), a traditional Peranakan dumpling snack comprising glutinous rice and dried shrimp paste.

Ollella is run by two Indonesian sisters serving up tried-and-true family recipes, both savoury and sweet. On the kueh front, must-tries include their Signature Spiced Lapis (from $28.50) that’s made with a 60-year-old Indonesian recipe. This traditional snack features a flavourful mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and cardamom. If you’re dining at their new Far East Square cafe, you’ll find fresh kueh on display, alongside affordable Indonesian-style mains such as Lontong Sayur ($5.80): vegetables and rice cakes in curry.

You may know them for their bak chang, but Kim Choo Kueh Chang is also a hub for Nyonya sweets. Having been around since the 1940s, this humble heritage stall still makes their kueh by hand and from scratch. Get ondeh ondeh, kueh ambon, ang ku kueh, kueh salat, and plenty more, all for under $5. We recommend getting their Mixed Box ($3.20), which includes two pieces each of kueh salat and kueh lapis.
