With places abound selling kuih – or some prefer to call it kueh, whichever your spelling preference for these bite-sized Southeast Asian desserts – you’re bound to have a lot of choices!
Here we have selected a few shops of kuihs that you might want to try if it isn’t already your go-to for your favourite local sweets (or savoury):
Afira has quite the range in their menu from kuih bom, gatas to nona manis. Can’t decide on just one? They also sell by mix box!

Not a fan of sweet kuihs? There are also the savoury ones like the begedils that Dho Kitchenette sells.
They open orders daily until 5 pm but make sure you order for a day in advance!

Initially known for the egg tarts, now they have an expanded menu to include other kuihs and appetizers.

They offer frozen curry puffs with fillings made from beef, chicken and sardine. This comes in handy when you have a sudden craving but don’t want to go out. Order some in advance, defrost and fry whenever you like!

Tapak Kuda is more cake than it is kuih but it has definitely won hearts over the past few years. Icy Lucky Hoof offers them among other cakes and opens order when it’s hari raya season or the lunar new year.
