20 Nonya Kueh Places In Singapore That Will Satisfy All Your Sweet Kueh-vings

Nonya Kueh Banner Updated

Before the arrival of Western sweets, Singapore had nonya kueh. Captivatingly colourful, scrumptiously sweet (and sometimes, savoury), whimsically wobbly, strikingly shaped, and all-around alluring, nonya kuehs have managed to defy the attrition of time, and has firmly ingrained itself into the nation’s collective palate.

Nonya kueh (or Malay kuih) is a type of dessert created in the South-East Asian region, serving as bite-sized snacks for the peckish to intersperse throughout the day. More than a tea-time snack of the elderly or an occasional treat your adoring grandparents indulged you with, nonya kueh forms an integral part of the Peranakan culinary heritage.

While many traditional desserts are struggling to stay relevant to present-day dessert preferences, nonya kuehs have not only seamlessly transitioned into modernity, the recent resurgence of interest in Peranakan fare has skyrocketed them to the forefront of our consciousness as well.

Whether you’re kueh-ving for a classic treat or something with a more contemporary spin (or even both!), we have put together a guide for you to track down all your favourite kuehs and more!

10 Nostalgic & Old-school Foods In Singapore That’ll Remind You Of Your Childhood

OLD SCHOOL FOOD COLLAGE

Singapore has gone through plenty of changes over the years and we have evolved from a humble little fishing village to a bustling economic hub. As we continue to progress and grow, it is inevitable that we leave behind certain parts of our culture and roots.

One area that has certainly gone through plenty of changes is our food scene. Over the years, with new food fads popping up all over the place, old school snacks and eats have been pushed aside and forgotten, especially by the new generation of youths. We bet that if you approach any teenager now and ask them if they want to follow you to get some bo bo cha cha, they would respond with a blank stare and a confused “huh?”.

For those of you who are sick of the salted egg and mala trends and believe that old is gold, here is our guide to 10 old-school places in Singapore that sell nostalgic foods from your childhood. For the people who don’t know anything about traditional Singapore food, educate yourselves by reading this list.

24 Hours In Nara, Japan — What Else To Do In This Tranquil City Besides Playing With Deers

NARA COLLAGE TEXT

The first thought that comes to mind when Nara is mentioned is deers. Lots and lots of deers.

Nara is famous for its free-roaming Sika deer which can be found wandering around the city. There are at least 1200 of these nimble creatures in Nara and they are tame enough for people to pet and feed them.

However, did you know that the Nara deer used to be deemed as sacred? These graceful creatures were once revered and considered to be divine messengers of the gods. They were so enshrined that anyone found to have killed a deer of Nara were to face the death penalty.

The deers these days are no longer considered as sacred, but they still continue to be protected as national treasures. The city loves their deer so much that there are even signs reminding people to give way to them when they cross the road!

Nara is the perfect blend of both the past and present, making it a great place to make a day trip. If you’re new to the city and are clueless on what to add into your itinerary, here is a guide on what you can see, eat and do there.

10 Quiet Cafes in Singapore To Get Lost In A Good Book Without Distractions

Quiet Cafes In Singapore

Throw a stone in any direction in Singapore and chances are, it’ll land on a cafe. It’s official, Singaporeans are mad about cafes—and we’re only getting madder. But gone are the days where cafes used to be places offering people a respite from the hustle and bustle, to catch up on reading or simply to lounge about in the comfort of good company, a nice warm beverage and a light snack to match.

Nowadays, the appeal of hipster cafes is a tad different. It’s all about the aesthetics, the so-called ’wow factor’ and whether or not certain qualities—be it the food, drinks or interior—are worthy of the ‘gram’ or not.

It’s times like these where one really should know where to find a nice quiet cafe, one devoid of the hipster crowd, the noise and simply a place that offers a conducive space to work, read or lounge about. Here is our list of 10 quiet cafes to get lost in a good book without distractions.
