Red Tortoise Cakes


Oh Ang Ku Kueh lah! Moohaha. That's why I think these ethnic food names should not be changed or translated. With Singapore being such a young country, ethnic food names form an integral part of our culture. I say let Putu Mayam be Putu Mayam! :p

The Ang Ku Kuehs (60 cents each) from Ji Xiang Confectionery had a lovely soft chewy skin flavoured with pandan, and a sweet green bean paste filling. Such a simple and enjoyable snack. I do hope it survives through the generations.
