Chye Kee Chwee Kueh

I always thought that the best Chwee Kueh in Singapore is located at Tiong Bahru. Never would I imagine it to be located a bustling food market in Macpherson.

The stall is run by an elderly couple whose noble intention is to keep their cost low and affordable to the general public. Unfortunately, their children does not intend to continue the Chwee Kueh business when the parents retire in 2 years time.

The Chwee Kueh and salted turnip garnish is freshly made daily. This Chwee Kueh stall is definitely a winner costs 10 pieces for $2.

  1. I love chwee kueh & hubby likes to buy the tiong bahru one. Macpherson? Mmmm... looks like we've gotta recce one of these days.

    Thks for dropping by & it's really nice to hear from u!

  2. I do not like turnips but judging by the picture I would be willing to try. I can’t even pronounce the name of the dish and I am already considering eating it. It is sad though that the little restaurant will not be there in a few more years.
