If you were to ask me for a recommendation at Tiong Bahru Market & Food Centre, my first thought will be the Lor Mee and Chwee Kueh. I told the opportunity to visit Lor Mee 178 and Jian Bo Shui Kueh while I was there a couple of weeks back.
There were many mixed reviews on Jian Bo Shui Kueh and most of them noticed that the standard and quality were not the same as previous. They could be right as the original owner has sold the stall to the current owner (accordingly to what I found on the web).
Chwee Kueh 4/5
The freshly made Chwee Kueh ($1.20/4pc, $1.80/6pc, $2.40/8pc) was soft and firm. The chye poh (turnip filling) was on the darker side which was rather fragrant compared to other stalls. However it was kind of flat without the crunchy texture. The chilli although was mild but I personally felt that it blended very well with the chye poh. Overall I felt that the chwee kueh standard is still way above most of the competitors out there.
