Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry @ Tiong Bahru Road

Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry falls into the pages of old school bakeries - traditional, raw and unfortunately comes with a blotch of not so great service. That said, I still find it incredibly charming, stepping into a place before my time and eating up nostalgia one treat at a time.

Soon it dawned on me that while they sold an array of nonya kuehs, they specialised in pandan and coconut kuehs.


Puteri Ayu ($4, 5 pieces)

Steamed mini pandan cake topped with grated coconut and drizzled with gula melaka. Incredibly fragrant and moist, this tasted just like kueh tutu deconstructed to me, except so much better.


Kueh Dadar ($0.80)

Best of, already when I laid my eyes on this delicate roll of pandan crepes, coconut and gula melaka. The others eaten have had it too thick and for a non grated coconut fan, this was an absolute delight to eat.


Lemper Udang ($1.30)

Rolled with banana leaf, the chewy rice grains enveloping a single layer of hae bi makes this a simple yet very underrated nonya treat. The fried shrimp usually ends up too sweet or not spicy enough yet they have nailed the combination perfectly and leaves a lingering fragrance too.


These kueh bingkas were panfried and had a delicious crisp exterior.


On the roll with tapioca and these tapioca kuehs, baked and steamed. Depending on preference, I actually prefer the version with a coating of coconut grating.


Not forgetting kueh ambon, a honeycomb cake with the intricate design.

I love the prices, seems that inflation has alluded them which is great. The thing about the past is, everything is affordable and now, most comes at a price. I love the flavours and trust that this is one in the hood that I wish will not disappear with time.
