Long House Popiah: In Search of the Best Popiah

Singapore Food Blog

How far will you go for the best popiah? When cravings call, we do crazy stuff like going to Ang Mo Kio for crabs, or queuing up half an hour for the best char kway teow.

I wanted the perfect popiah. And I didn’t care if I had to go all way to Toa Payoh Lorong 7 – just in search for the ultimate popiah at Long House.

I have tried Long House popiah at Bukit Timah Hawker Centre before, but they say you need to go Toa Payoh for the best. For someone who likes to explore new places, I’m a tad lazy when it comes to traveling for food. I mean, it’s acceptable when I’m in the area. But it’s kind of silly when you go all the way to Toa Payoh just for the popiah.

Was it worth the while? Yes, definitely.

Now where do we start? Everyone knows the legendary Long House Popiah. Homemade popiah skin with fresh ingredients, and it’s incredibly crunchy. If you fancy a popiah party at home, Long House sells their skin and fillings for DIY popiah too.

I always envisage throwing a popiah party. It seems to be so much fun: from filling the popiah skin with lots of ingredients, to wrapping of the popiah, and admiring the piece of art, before gulping it down in a bite. What’s there not to like about popiah party?

Okay maybe less the wrapping part since I’m a lazy bum. I probably will go for the crispy Kuay Pie Tee instead. The same awesome fillings in the crispy shells. Happiness now comes in the form of a crispy cup.

Now tell me, where is your favorite place for popiah?

hello! there’s a super good one at joo chiat, that makes their own popiah skin. i think it can be a serious contender for best popiah ever =)

i was *just* about to mention the Joo Chiat joint (which is a stone’s throw from my home)! ^ ^

that’s the bestest popiah i’ve had too… it’s called Kway Guan Huat… and i just realised they have their own website!


Angeline: I knew that you was going to say that. HAHA the next time i go funan, i am going to try it

emily & Kitsune: Yea i tried that one before, http://bit.ly/cyEAbG bestest popiah? really?

aiwei: Not fair, it’s like 300km away from me. why don’t you come over? haha

Where is Long House popiah in Bukit Timah, the exact address? I didn’t know they have a branch in Bkt Timah!

Johnson: Roger that, that will be the next place in search of the best popiah : )

JY: The other branch is in Bukit Timah Hawker centre. But from what I heard, it’s like a franchise branch of sorts by the owner’s sister.

Betty: You only tried it once? what a shame! it’s like the perfect wrap. haha the next time you come to Singapore, must have a lot of popiahs

julie: Sad to say, i haven been to chomp chomp before. but which stall is it?

Ju: Where got yr name?

Angeline: I know, after you rave about it, i must try it, some day. lol

QI JI! Skin not too thick and it’s juicy! :) )

& I love the DIY popiah from lao beijing (I think it’s not on the menu)

i know abt it thru my cousin. she frequent there. If you wanna try, you just tell them DIY popiah, they will know which one u referring to.

sharon: okay dokie. but i don’t think i will go to Lao beijing for a meal, don’t really appeals to me. maybe one day if i want to discover the diy popiah. haha

Have tried Qi ji,Kway Guat Huat(joo chiat)didn’t quite like it.I like Long Hse Popiah the filling is so very hot.And another I prefer would be Glory(East Coast Rd) but eggy skin very nice.
