Review Summary:

When I finally placed the Putu Piring into my mouth, it was a piece of heaven that I just tasted. The skin was so thin, soft and fine, it melted and blended with the Gula Melaka to form the perfect harmony. The Gula Melaka was also just the right amount, and not too sweet too. I am getting excited just thinking about it, you can say I found a new found love for Putu Piring! Imagine how much tastier it would be if I had it on the spot.

Review written by Glutton Princess – QiQi

I’ve never known Kueh TuTu had another name, known as Putu Piring. Turns out that Kueh TuTu is the Chinese version while Putu Piring is the Malay version. From research, I found out that Putu meant dough and Piring meant plate. (Congratulations, you just walked away with the knowledge of 2 new Malay words today!)

Back to the main point, Kueh Tu Tu is one of my mum’s favourites. I never really understood why she liked it so much because it has been YEARS since I last had a Kueh Tu Tu… And it was far from fantastic. The last impression that it left me was that it was dry and hard which isn’t exactly the best combination. So when I first saw the stall, I was amazed by the amount of awards and certificates that they have. Hopefully they were as good as they seemed to be.

And they were.

We decided to take away the Putu Pirings instead, since we were rather full from lunch. So when I first saw it, I was already home, about 20-25 minutes give or take from when we first got the Putu Piring. To take the pictures that you can see here, I had to mess around with it and when I came into contact with it, it was so soft! When I finally placed the Putu Piring into my mouth, it was a piece of heaven that I just tasted. The skin was so thin, soft and fine, it melted and blended with the Gula Melaka to form the perfect harmony. The Gula Melaka was also just the right amount, and not too sweet too. The shredded coconut and the pandan leaves in the package further enhance the fragrance and a big boost to the already salivating taste. I am getting excited just thinking about it, you can say I found a new found love for Putu Piring! Imagine how much tastier it would be if I had it on the spot.

To top it all off, the service was also great. Ever came across stalls with owners that are so proud and conceited because of the awards they got for their food? (We’ve met many, we should probably come up with a list of such stalls) Expect the direct opposite of that at the Traditional Haig Road Putu Piring. Knowing that we were taking it away, they approached us a couple of times to see if we were ready to take it so the Putu Piring was at its freshest. The people there were utterly warm and friendly, I could sense that they really love what they are doing and they put in their heart and soul into it. Definitely a must try! All my family members love it and it’s definitely one of the best Kueh Tu Tu in Singapore.
