Kueh Tu-tu

IMAGE_138.jpg

This is a cool little local sweet that can be bought off the streets of Chinatown. The guy in the stand is wrapping gula melaka (coconut brown sugar) in flour and steaming it quickly in this metal steaming contraption, with banana leaf cutouts to keep them from sticking to each other. It's pretty good if you like coconut. Get five for S$2 (US$1.20) yourself off Smith Street, not far from Erich's Wuerstelstand.

For an even better tasting snack, try "Putu Piring" with Gula Melaka filling at 1st Floor of People's Park Centre.

If never fancy tu-tu kueh till i try this stall at Bukit Merah Central, Blk 164 Coffee Shop. $2 for 5 pcs and they have coconut, peanut and chocolate flavour. Very tasty and highly recommended to try the coconut and chocolate. MUST TRY!! You will never regret!
