Ang Ku Kuehs from Ang Ku Kueh

I lurrrve peanuts. Well, any nuts in that matter (now, now don't think otherwise). Raw nuts and nut butter are my favourite but roasted peanuts with pancakes are like god sent.

But there's something else that is good to eat with peanuts, and that is ang ku kueh. Somehow, ordinary ang ku kuehs simply don't go well with the filling.

What do I mean?

Well, the glutinous rice flour is too sticky and very often, too thick. And when you try it eat it, the kueh sticks to your hands! As a result, you don't get to taste the fillings very much. That's why, from now onwards, I will only eat ang ku kueh by Ang Ku Kueh.

Alright, you must be thinking "What the hell are you talking about Sam?!"

You see, the other day Qin and I were walking down upper thomson road and passed by a shop called Ang Ku Kueh. Apperently it's been rated as one of the top 10 Ang Ku Kuehs in Singapore. Duh! Of course we had to put some in our tummies!

The peanut ang ku kueh (70c) was... oh my gawd... I've never tasted so good kueh before! The kueh is thin and not sticky at all and very bitable (won't stick to your mouth like glue) and the peanut filling is... oh my gawd (again). It's super grainy and the sweetness is just right. Plus, there is this slight savoury taste that makes it very special. (And there's alot of filling if you're wondering).

They also have this chicken mushroom ang ku kueh (70c) on Sundays which is equally awesome. It's chicken, yam and mushroom which is super tasty and mostly savoury and slightly sweet. Oh man, fantastic, sedap, yummy!

Well, it's too bad we didn't get to try the kueh salat and dried shrimp rice but what we did try were the ang ku kuehs with peanuts, green bean paste, coconut and chicken and mushroom. Coconut was quite good but the peanuts and chicken and mushroom was Wooo!

Okay I shall stop repeating myself.

I've actually driven pass this place a few times but they seem to be closed. Any idea what their opening hours are like? I guess I could call them but just thought I'll pick your brain first heh.

Haha, if I'm not wrong they open weekdays from 11.30am. But they usually sell out by around 1pm but they do cater mostly to large orders. Go on Sunday because then you'll get the kueh salat, glutinous rice and chicken and mushroom ang ku kueh

I like peanuts ang ku kueh but have never come across chicken mushroom ang ku kueh, doesn it taste like soon kueh?

tigerfish said...

if u had not said it's ang ku kueh, at first glance(1st pix), i thot it was png kueh...LOL!

The Yummie dummieS said...

Haha nah. Soon kueh is savoury while ang ku kueh is more of a sweet snack and the common fillings are peanuts, green bean paste and coconut. Of course there are also newer ones like yam and er... durian :)

i personally think that they have added too much coconut milk.
but their green bean paste are quite gd..
i think the one at redhill sells better ang ku kueh =x

The Yummie dummieS said...
