Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry Review – One of the best Kueh Dar-Dar
From the Hainanese Curry Rice at the corner of the coffeeshop to the Teochew rice kueh and many other delectable local hawker dishes in the neat and clean food centre, the food here have evoked many nostalgic memories of our childhood’s favorites. Tiong Bahru – a medley of new and old, while the progression are enthralling viewing, it is a real good place worth the soul searching of our heritage including the exotic food scene.
Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry, a typical old shophouse presented in the most traditional manner and unpretentious way, not the environment and setting to attract you but the it is their old-school Nonya kueh or pastries that entice your tastebuds.
Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry offers an assortment of Nonya kuehs, however, our objectives of visiting the shop is clear, the shopping list cannot left out the Kueh Dar-Dar and Ondeh-Ondeh. The two most sought after kuehs among the array of kueh.
Kueh Dar-Dar ($0.80)
White grated coconut wrapped in a green-coloured pandan-flavoured thick rice roll, the Kueh Dar dar here stands out among others with its unique filling, Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry do not add palm sugar or gula melaka for extra sweetness, the snowy white grated coconut is fresh and fragrance, keeping the most original coconut flavour in its form with its mildly sweet taste.
One of the best Kueh Dar dar in Singapore? We can concur and endorse the claim.
The round rice balls are filled with melted gula melaka, if you don’t want to stain your clothes or face and hands with the explosive juice encased in the dough, never eat the Ondeh-Ondeh with a bite, just pop the whole ball in one mouthful and let the gula melaka to burst in the mouth, you will be able to enjoy the essence of the gula melaka and the softness of the dough. Every ball is just salivating.
Others kueh kueh are reasonably good but the real Mccoy here are the must try kueh dadar and ondeh-ondeh.
We do enjoy the Kueh Dar-Dar and Ondeh-Ondeh Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry, other kuehs are reasonably good as well. If you have limited capacity, go try at least the two kueh-kueh mentioned, you wouldn’t regret it.
