Water Cake

This “water cake” (direct translation for chwee kueh) is topped with chye poh (Chinese dialect for preserved radish) that is sweet, nutty (we reckon it is in part because of the sesame seeds) and on the dry side (not a bad thing). The cake itself is soft and smooth, while the chilli is not overpowering, working beautifully into the salty and browned chye poh.

I dont know about other chwee kuey lovers but for me, its great to have a lot of chye poh (preserved veg) and it must balance out in proportion of cos. This shop thinks they're all that cos its the only shop selling chwee kuey at tiong bahru mkt. I asked for more chyepoh to my 4pcs n was willing to top-up. she retorted its a lot given already and i need to put in an extra dollar for a dollop more! incredible. most places will go as far as 50cents but she was just ridiculous and just plain stingy. Even gave me a matter of fact face when she said take it or leave it. aunty aunty. Do business dont be like that. chye poh is so cheap... dont even try to overcharge.

This dish was part of the food hunt at Tiong Bahru.  At 4 for $1.40, it is slightly more expensive than the Bedok Chwee Kueh (4for$1) but we do not mind because the chye poh here is excellent. There is an extra nutty aroma and crunchy texture because it is stir fried with sesame seeds. As the owners continue to mill their own rice flour for the chwee Kuey, each petite rice cake is soft to each bite.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
