For anyone who doesn’t know what tutu kueh is, they’re little steamed rice-flour cakes filled with delicious fillings such as peanut, coconut and occasionally chocolate or gula melaka.
In Singapore’s waning hawker scene, stalls such as Tan’s Tutu are a glimmer of hope for its revival and renewal. Now run by Tan Bee Hua, Tan’s Tutu has been more than 80 years in the making. Daughter of Tan Yong Fa, the inventor of Tutu Kueh himself, continues his legacy through her day stall at Havelock and her newer outlet at Clementi.

Though Sunset Way may seem like an unassuming location, this quiet neighbourhood is home to a good number of food gems which also includes the recently opened Fredo’s Baker.
Set up in a space just opposite the old-school Balmoral Bakery, this fairly new kid on the block features a delectable selection of pastries, cakes and tarts that are made with quality ingredients and the utmost passion from its pastry chef and owner, Alfred Chan.
Taking over local bakery Prima Deli’s long-time spot in Clementi is One Stone Three Birds. The humble ice cream cafe serves homemade gelato at affordable price points. As there aren’t many speciality dessert cafes in Clementi, One Stone Three Birds might be well on its way to being the go-to ice cream place in central Clementi.
The shop is run by a husband and wife duo, passionate to find new flavours and infusions for their ice cream. Check out what we thought about this new ice cream shop!
