Soon Kueh


The transliterated Chinese name of this dish is 笋粿 (pinyin : sun3 guo3). This is a steamed Chinese dumpling made of rice flour skin with chopped turnips strips as filling. Although the word 'soon' is a Chinese dialect word for bamboo shoot (笋), practically all modern versions of this dish are made with turnip. It can be eaten steamed or fried (to make the skin crispy), with sweet dark soya sauce and chilli paste.

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 !

This shop was voted by the public as one of the most popular carrot cake stalls in Singapore in Yummy King. The carrot cake is of the black (soy sauce) variety. You wouldn't know at first glance because the stall front display overflows with a range of traditional teochew kuehs (glutinous rice kueh, ou kueh, ku chye kueh and soon kueh) and other snacks. Looks like we've finally found the missing link between kueh and kway (as in chye tow kway a.k.a. carrot cake) ;-)
