Thirty years of honing their craft means that this hidden gem is one you shouldn’t miss. It was awarded the title of “Heritage Hero” by Slow Food SG, a nod to its commitment to traditional — and laborious — work. Try the yi buah, a kueh made from rice flour, wrapped in banana leaf and stuffed with shredded coconut, ground peanut, gula melaka, sesame seeds, ginger, and dried persimmons. It’s finger-licking good with a slightly spicy kick from the ginger, and you’d be hard-pressed to find it elsewhere.
