Get $2 Putu Mayam With Freshly Grated Coconut At This Bukit Merah Stall

6th March 2024

ThatPutuMayamStall has $2 putu mayam at Bukit Merah Central Food Centre


With its thin bee hoon, grated coconut, and orange-coloured sugar, putu mayam is a classic breakfast dish that sadly isn’t as commonly eaten these days. But there are still numerous places to get the treat, one of which is ThatPutuMayamStall, found in Bukit Merah Central Food Centre.


ThatPutuMayamStall is relatively new to the scene, having just opened last year. A packet of Putu Mayam here will set you back just $2, and true to its name, that’s the only thing you can purchase. There are no cutleries provided at this stall, so you can either eat it at the hawker centre with your hands—which is the traditional way—or bring it back home, where you can use your own cutleries. 


According to ThatPutuMayamStall’s owner, the bee hoon, which is pressed into an almost disc-like shape, is delivered to the stall on the morning of each opening day. He also grates and steams the coconut himself, and the result is fresh batches of putu mayam ready for your consumption. 


Personally, I enjoyed the putu mayam here quite a bit. The soft yet chewy bee hoon was a delight to chew on, and the blend of flavours, which combined the nuttiness of grated coconut flakes with the sweetness of sugar, really whetted the appetite. If you’ve been craving some putu mayam or are interested in trying this old-school snack, ThatPutuMayamStall is certainly worth a visit.
