Ah Yee’s Soon Kueh
Ah Yee’s Soon Kueh used to run a stall selling soon kueh at Dunman Food Centre, but it shut its doors and went into hibernation for years before resurrecting at the new location in a shophouse along Tembeling Road at Joo Chiat.
The retirement of the stall owner and its delectable soon kueh has not been forgotten by the loyal customers. The numerous requests from the fans since then have motivated the son of Mdm Tay to continue the soon kueh legacy and keep the traditional kueh alive.
Ah Yee’s Soon kueh is not just back in the game but with some exciting changes. It is now operating from a much bigger premise and offers a larger assortment of kuehs for selection.
Soon kueh ($1.30)
The soon kueh is definitely the must-try here, we certainly like the flavourful fillings and the freshness of the ingredients. It consists of turnip, bamboo shoots, black fungus, carrot, and quality dried shrimps etc. The generous helping of fillings was encapsulated in a thin and chewy skin, a real good soon kueh indeed. (4.2/5.0)
Yam kueh ($1.30)
Soon kueh may be the signature here but the yam kueh captured our attention as well. You can fully appreciate the fragrance of the yam and the sweetness of the pumpkin, and the flavourful seasoning combined with the beautiful thin and chewy skin turned this yam kueh into a real winning “yum” kueh. (4.5/5.0)
Ku Chye Kueh ($1.30)
The best Ku Chye Kueh uses only the short and thin Malaysian chives which has more delicate and refined flavour than the thick and long Thai produce which is bland and coarse in texture. The right choice of the Chinese Chives in the recipe with right seasoning helped to boost the overall flavour tremendously, making it one of the best Ku Chye Kueh in town. (4.5/5.0)
Png Kueh ($1.30)
To make a succulent Png kueh, Ah Yee’s soon kueh ensures its Png kueh has the right flavour with the use of quality ingredients and seasoning. Some twists in the ingredients like ground peanuts instead of whole peanuts helped to elevate the overall taste and this is definitely a kueh worth sinking your teeth in. (4.0/5.0)
Ah Yee’s Soon Kueh does offer other snacks as well, like glutinous rice and pumpkin cake etc. We tried the glutinous rice but compared to the popular kuehs here, there is some room to improve on the flavour.
We are now regulars of Ah Yee’s Soon Kueh whenever we have a craving for Teochew kueh. We are simply attracted by the generous fillings, quality ingredients and tantalising seasoning, and are highly satisfied. Now, you should give it a try if you haven’t done so.
