Xi De Li (西得利) @ Clementi 448 Market & Food Centre


So what does Singaporean eat for breakfast? For me breakfast can be as simple as a cup of coffee and You Tiao. When writing for my OMY Singapore Blog Awards 2013, 1960s themed blog post, I came across Xi De Li (西得利) which has been selling the traditional snacks since 1966.


Xi De Li (西得利) all started from a 10 years boy sell You Tiao and Hum Chin Pang (Butter Bun) from his bicycle at Beo Crescent in the morning before rushing off to be on time for school. The founder Ah Sai (addressed by his neighbours and friends) has since passed down the business to his 3 children. Business has since expanded with 9 branches island wide with a central factory in Kaki Bukit. This outlet at Clementi is their main branch. Besides You Tiao and Hum Chin Pang, Xi De Li also offers red bean bun, salted bun, sesame balls, mix fritters and curry puffs at their branches now.

You Tiao 3.5/5

Dip the You Tiao into the cup of coffee and allows it to get all soaked up. That is how I have learnt to enjoy my breakfast from my grandparents and I am still doing it now. The fritters are fried freshly using premium vegetable oil at the stall giving it a nice crisp while not too oily.

  1. I love this entry, so simple and heartfelt. Nice!

  2. Derrick, I hope you are aware that your staff(young guy with spectacle) is very rude to customer to the point that I have to cancel my order even when I was about to pay for them! Even at the point of my queries to your staff as to why is he so rude to customer, he is not repentant at all and simply see me off! You can look at your video at your branch today about 1:50pm to know how your staff treat your customer when you are not around.
    Best regards.

    1. Hi there, Thanks for the feedback but kindly note the stall has nothing related to me and I am not the owner of the stall. This is a food blog and I review various food establishments.
