 Every ball was hand rolled by the store keepers and when I was there there was a pot still boiling this orangy sweet potato ondeh ondeh. Just like the traditional style, these box of Ondeh Ondeh was dressed with white fluffy shredded coconut which gave a stronger fragrance to those balls.

Becareful as we press and chew on the ondeh ondeh as one may encounter the piping hot fillings from oozing out make up of Gula Melaka (Palm Sugar). These lovely chewy Ondeh Ondeh were not too sweet to taste and were definitely addictive.

Another note worthy item is their special made tapioca kueh. Similar to the Ondeh Ondeh, these white shredded coconut clanged onto the rectangular pieces of translucent tapioca kueh.

Tapioca Kueh


Abit firmer than Japanese Mochi but they were as good as the Ondeh Ondeh, simply addictive! They were chewy and satisfying with little sweetness and not too cloying even after having few pieces. Dont judge the book by its cover, such simple and plain looking kuehs are delicious!
