www.sgkueh.com



Read quite a bit of good reviews regarding sgkueh, thus decided to take a short walk from my office to try out their famous Orh Nee. Had meant to buy some of their Onde Onde to try as well, but alas, they were all sold out.



The Kuehs they sell



Orh Nee


$2.50 gets you a reasonably sized portion of Orh Nee, about a small bowl full of it, like in any Teochew restaurant. The paste was smooth and a little watery, but I found the flavours rather lacking. It wasn't as robust as I would have liked it to be and it just didn't ooze goodness like the Orh Nee I had at Huat Kee. The Gingko nuts were dull and tasteless. But its just about the best Orh Nee you can find in any Hawker Centre in the CBD area at least. So do try it if you are in the vicinity and have a craving.

Update 19 Dec 06: Finally tried the Onde Onde. $2.20 bought me 5 bite size pieces of Onde Onde. The skin was soft and chewy and coated with lots of coconut shreds with the interior filling of Gula Melaka not too thick or sweet. Quite good.

Had the Durian ondeh, was robustly durian tasting with smooth fillings - reasonable at 80¢. The normal coconut one was a letdown. No idea y the filling was HARDEN. Off day, I hope

I've never tried the Durian one before. I should make it a point to try. Thanks for sharing! =)
