Located at #01-164 Alexandra Village, Block 125 Bukit Merah Lane 1., Singapore 150125
Show me on map
This airconditioned shop sits among a row of quiet HDB shophouses facing Alexandra road, opposite Alexandra Hospital and Queensway Shopping Centre. It offers traditional kueh lovers a range of handmade kuehs and other pastries. Interestingly, the Chinese name of the shop is much more complex than its English name - it translates into Old/Grand Aunt & Mother Teochew Kuehs. The glutinous rice kuehs were cheap at 70c (5 for $3.50) but tasted quite bland and run-of-the-mill, compare this to Yong's which retail at 80c but is only slight tastier. If these traditional kueh houses do not improve/innovate this classic Teochew kueh with more ingredients like peanuts, shiitake mushrooms and meat slices, I'm afraid it will be a few more years before it is talked about only in a museum tour. The great discovery for this shop however, is that they've stucked to the tradition of making soon kueh (笋粿) with real bamboo shoots (笋). These tasted so good I forgot to snap photos before the pack of five ($6.50) I bought were all eaten up !

Red Star Restaurant

Categories: Chinese, Porridge, Cakes and Pastries, Dim Sum

Located at #07-23 HDB Block 54 Chin Swee Road., Singapore 160054
Show me on map
This traditional no-frills Chinese restaurant is located in a kooky part of the seventh floor of an old HDB block near to Manhattan House and seems to have been around like forever. Ok not forever, but easily a few decades. It's popular for dim sum, and a favourite dish of mine here is the crispy roast pork cubes (also see entry for Crystal Jade Toa Payoh under dim sum category). Overall quality and service is nothing to shout about it continues to hold its own against fancy new players in the uppity newer malls. So try this out at least once before the unstoppable tide of upgrading (en-bloc!) closes it down some day.
