After more than a year of renovation, it is great that Geylang Bahru Food Centre is finally opened for business again. A year ago, it is rather hard to get to the food centre but now the new Geylang Bahru Downtown line station is just 3 minutes walk away. It is now so convenient to get to the food centre.
A stall that caught my eyes is Toa Payoh 93 Soon Kueh with their handmade traditional kueh. The sight of the stall owners and staff kneading and rolling the dough, making the various kueh and steaming the freshly handmade kueh, just drew me to the stall.
Soon Kueh 4.2/5 and Png Kueh 4/5
I have the Soon Kueh ($1 each) and Png Kueh ($0.90 each). The Soon Kueh has an enjoyable chewy texture stuffed with shredded turnip, further flavoured by mushrooms and dried shrimps. My only complain is that the shredded turnip is a bit coarse. For the Png Kueh, it is stuffed with fragrant glutinous rice, peanuts and mushrooms. A balanced proportion of filling to rice flour skin ratio. The size is a bit small compare to elsewhere but for 90 cents, I am not complaining.
Abacus Seed 3/5
I also tried the Abacus Seed ($3) which is a traditional Hakka dish made with yam. Unfortunately the consistency is not there, some of the abacus seed tasted rather bland while some I can taste the yam taste. Besides that, the whole execution of the dish was not fragrant enough.
