Chwee Kueh are steamed rice cakes topped with fried radish. They are made from rice flour and starch. The direct translation of Chwee Kueh is ‘water cake’. When cooked the cakes have a little depression in the middle in which water pools.
They are one of the most traditional delicacies and are fast disappearing so try them whilst you still can. We can recommend Jian Bo at Tiong Barhu’s hawker market. If you would like to try them on your walking tour of Singapore just let us know!
