Jian Bo Shui Kueh (Tiong Bahru Chwee Kueh)

Chwee Kueh

Chwee kueh is cool - it's a local breakfast snack of steamed rice cakes topped with a dark salty greasy concoction of stir-fried pickled turnip (and onions, I think) with a side of chili sauce, if you so desire. The Tiong Bahru hawker center has one of the more famous stalls on the island, Jian Bo Shui Kueh ( least, until the new Tiong Bahru hawker center is finished). I haven't really had chwee kueh in too many other places (it's surprisingly not very common), so I have no basis for comparison, but this place sure is good. It's a great excuse to eat grease and salt in the name of a healthy steamed rice-based breakfast. Get 4 "cakes" at a bargain price of only S$1 (US$0.60).
