Haig Road Putu Piring

Putu Piring is a steamed cake made of rice flour and filled with melted gula melaka (brown palm sugar). It is a traditional Malay dish that evokes great nostalgia that is hard to find these days in Singapore. The Haig Road Putu Piring stall is helmed by Aisha Hashim, a dedicated hawker who puts in long hours to dish out this delicious treat that takes a lot of hard work to complete. Following tradition, she serves this dish on pandan leaves and with shredded coconut to complement the putu piring. She was trained as a pastry chef at the famous Johnson & Wales university and returned to take over her family’s business.

Posted @withrepost • @juliuslim The things we do on a Friday night and especially only once in a year is to head over to the Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar. First stop was straight to some traditional foods of Pisang Keju Coklat and Martabak Manis before drowning it with a 1 litre Thai milk tea while having some roti john in the process. Next up, we shared a packet of nasi biryani ayam from a stall that I cannot even remember from and completing the rounds with some putu piring. And yes, this was the one that was featured recently in Netflix’s Street Food, Singapore episode, as well. Comes with 5 pieces for $2.50, these oval-shaped steamed rice cakes contains a googy gula melaka in it and it is recommended to eat it while its freshly out from the steamer. _________________ Traditional Haig Road Putu Piring Address: 14, Haig Road, Haig Road Market & Food Centre, Unit 01-07, Singapore 430014 _________________ #hawkersg #hawkerfood #sghawker #jiaklocal #hawkerhopping #OurHawkerCulture #burpple #burpplesg #foreverhungry #sgfood #sgig #sgfoodies #instafood_sg #instasg #setheats #hungrygowhere #singaporeinsiders #foodstagram #foodphotography #instafood #buzzfeedfood #aworldtoeat #putupiring #stb #haigroadputupiring #theoriginalgulamelaka #supportlocal

Sin Kee Famous Chicken Rice

Sin Kee Famous Chicken Rice was started way back in 1971 by the current owner’s father. Niven Leong has since taken over the family business and follows his dad’s special recipe. It is done the traditional way with poaching, water bath and drying the chicken to evoke good old memories. This is one of the best comfort food dishes in Singapore!
