20 Traditional Soon Kueh Stalls In Singapore That Your Grandparents Will Approve Of

5th February 2024

Best soon kueh stalls in Singapore

Soon kueh deserves more attention than it gets. Comprising a translucent rice flour skin and packed with jicama, dried shrimp and mushrooms, it’s an old-school snack that is both healthy and tasty. Plus, it’s one of the few dishes that brings me back to my Teochew roots. If you’ve never tried it before, it is high time you check out these traditional soon kueh stalls found all around Singapore.

1. Lai Heng Handmade Teochew Kueh


In modern times, it is tough to find soon kueh that’s made by hand rather than with the help of machines. At the Michelin-approved Lai Heng Handmade Teochew Kueh, you’ll literally get to see your Steamed Soon Kueh ($1.10) freshly prepared on the spot! You can opt for their Fried Soon Kueh ($1.20) as well. Pan-frying gives the thin chewy skin a crispier texture and enhances the aroma of the fillings.

2. Kuehs and Snacks (老婶阿嬷潮州粿)

Just as its Chinese name (老婶阿嬷潮州粿) suggests, Kuehs and Snacks offers house-made soon kueh reminiscent of those lovingly prepared by seasoned housewives for their families. What sets their steamed soon kueh apart is the filling. Instead of relying on just jicama, the stall follows a more traditional way of making these goodies by adding bamboo shoots to the mix. For an extra kick, dip your kueh in their blend of dark soy sauce and house-made chilli paste.

A short walk away from Alexandra Village Food Center, Poh Cheu Soon Kueh and Ang Ku Kueh has earned a loyal following with its wide range of Teochew kueh. What makes their Soon Kueh ($1.20) so special is the accompanying house-made chilli sauce, which zhngs-up the savoury filling with its fiery punch. These scrumptious bites are made in limited amounts each day, so be sure to swing by early if you want some! While you’re there, remember to try their crowd-pleasing Peanut Ang Ku Kueh ($1.30) as well.

Found at Bendemeer Food Centre, Yong Xiang Carrot Cake offers an interesting take on soon kueh and png kueh (glutinous rice dumpling) with their Fried Png Kueh and Soon Kueh ($4). Instead of serving them steamed with chilli sauce, these chewy dumplings are fried like chai tow kueh! You can choose to have this with or without black sauce as well.

Head down to Ah Yee’s Soon Kueh and marvel at the painstaking process that goes into making their Soon Kueh ($1.60). Thin and translucent, the kueh skin seems to defy gravity in holding the assortment of jicama strips, black fungus, carrots, dried shrimp, and bamboo shoots together. Top it off with some sweet sauce and chilli and I could eat this for breakfast every day!

Most of us may not have heard of Kukoh 21 Food Centre, but this hidden gem offers a smorgasbord of great food. The star attraction is Jalan Kukoh Teochew Kueh: a humble family business which first began in Johor Bahru. Popular among regulars of the hawker centre, this homely stall impresses with their signature Soon Kueh ($1.40). While it has a slightly thicker skin that usual, it still remains soft and chewy. Furthermore, the treat is pan-fried before it’s served, accentuating its taste and texture. The kueh here sells out quickly, so it’s rare for walk-in customers to get their hands on them. Remember to call in advance to reserve some before heading down.

Another kueh artisan in the CBD is Luan Jie Mei Shi. Their Soon Kueh ($1.20) is so popular that it is said to be always sold out every morning. What makes their soon kueh special is the chewy yet thin skin that’s made from scratch the night before. If the soon kueh alone doesn’t fill you up, we recommend getting their Chee Cheong Fun ($1.80 for two rolls). You get a nice balance of a silky texture, and sweet-savoury flavours for this one!
