Sing Swee Kee To Launch Traditional Hainanese Kueh And Coconut Ice Cream With Fried Mochi

30th March 2022

New dessert menu at Sing Swee Kee

Heads up if you love traditional snacks: Sing Swee Kee is rolling out a new dessert menu that takes a nod to their Hainanese roots. Available from 1 April 2022, exclusively at their Seah Street outlet, the new menu spotlights the lesser-seen Hainanese kueh, yibua, alongside trendy desserts such as mango sago and coconut shake.

Yibua, or 意粑, is a classic Hainanese steamed dumpling typically given out during weddings and one-month celebrations. The popular chicken rice restaurant’s rendition of this labour-intensive delicacy is based on a family recipe that’s handed down over generations.

Priced at $10 for a box of six, the mini-sized Hainan Kueh is available in two flavours: Traditional and Ginger-Free. The former sees chewy mochi skin encasing a rich filling of gula melaka, shredded coconut, ground peanuts, and white sesame, spiked with minced ginger. If you’re not a fan of the gingery notes, get the second option, which comes with a purple sweet potato-infused skin instead.

Each kueh is steamed in fragrant banana leaves, so it’s extra aromatic. Do note that the Hainan Kueh will only be available via preorder at their online store.

If you prefer a refreshing end to your meal, try their Hainan Kueh Ice Cream Sundae ($5.50), a deconstructed version of the Hainan kueh. This dessert features creamy coconut ice cream topped with peanuts and sesame, studded with deep-fried mochi bits for added texture. To finish, the sundae is drizzled with rich gula melaka.

You’ll also find other desserts on their updated menu, including Coconut Mango Sago ($4.50) and Coconut Shake ($4.50).
