Yong's Teochew Kueh

Just right after breakfast on a public holiday morning, we walk across the road to check out some Teochew Kueh.

 Yong's Teochew Kueh has been around at the shop houses of Upper Serangoon Road for a long time. I was rather surprise by the number of people queuing up for their traditional Chinese snacks even at early hours of a public holiday.

Interior floor space was rather limited and crowded with patrons lining up for their food as well as the workers rushing here and there in preparation of the items. There are no seatings available inside the shop but there are 1 or 2 tables right outside them.  Interior looked ather traditional pieced up by small pieces on floor titles and traditional white tiles on the wall. There will be one section right at the left side of the shop where we can get to see the live demonstration of how a fried popiah is done. After queuing for a short while in a shop, you will find yourselves smell full of teochew snacks.

Besides selling traditional Kuehs, Yong do have fried bee hoon for the breakfast and Yam paste for desserts.

We wanted to buy some tapioca kueh but somehow they are still in the process of preparing them.

Preparation for Tapioca Kueh
Yong's packaging comes in paper box featuring numerous traditional teochew kueh and its ingredients in color printing. The box also indicated that one can also order via their hotline.

Soon Kueh is quite big in size and looked plump. It was filled with crunchy grated turnips. As compared to the usual ones that I had ever eaten, theirs are considered above average.

Soon Kueh - $1.10
Pink Png Kueh and Soon Kueh are quite normal from the common chinese snack stall but I have never seen a white Png Kueh before. Those white Png Kueh perhaps looked more towards the original as they do not have any pink coloring on their skin. If you asked my preference, my vote will definitely goes to the white.

White Png Kueh - $1.20
Yam Kueh was rather unique and I have totally no idea it exist! It's modified version of the glutinous rice kueh just yam is included among the sticky glutinous rice fillings with ingredients such as mushrooms, peanuts and dried shrimps to enhance its aroma.
