Introduction: This Chwee Kueh stall at Ghim Moh Food Centre serves one of the best Chwee Kuehs in Singapore and it is absolutely delicious.

2. Jian Bo Shui Kueh
Introduction: Jian Bo Tiong Bahru Shui Kueh was founded by Mr Wang in 1958. Arriving in Singapore from a Teochew province in China, Mr Wang earned his keep by selling shui kueh with his trusty pushcart at Tiong Bahru Market. In the mid 1990s, husband and wife team Mr Ang Kien Huat and Mdm Toh Lai Hueh were invited to help out with the business. Following in the footsteps of Mr Wang’s laudable work ethic, Mr Ang unfailingly wakes up at 6am daily to cook and prepare the chilli and chye poh while Mdm Toh ensures that all the operations run smoothly. This is their promise to consumers that their shui kuehs will always be served fresh.
Having developed a love for shui kueh since young, it was only natural for Eric Ang to join his parents soon after he completed his national service. Eager to contribute, he broadened the brand’s product offering by introducing a whole range of complementary local delights. Today, just as Mr Wang had entrusted his shui kueh business to the next generation, Jian Bo Tiong Bahru Shui Kueh hopes to become an enduring food brand whose name and flavours can be handed down from one generation to the next.
Offerings: Riding on to the shift towards healthier lifestyle and food options, Jian Bo Tiong Bahru Shui Kueh has kept our faith of serving our signature shui kueh dish using the exact original recipe while only making a switch from the use of pork lard to healthier alternative with 100% vegetable oil. Using only the finest ingredients handpicked and checked for quality, our steamed rice cakes, chye poh (preserved radish) and chilli are freshly prepared in our central kitchen every morning, leaving them to chill in the afternoon before they are delivered to all our outlets across the island each night.
