Miss Ang made Ang Ku Kueh!

 Come to my era, most would not choose traditional nonya cakes/kuehs over fanciful muffins and cupcakes.

Hidden at the peaceful stretch behind Bedok block  85, Lek Lim Nonya Cake Confectionery reconnects me to my mother & grandmother’s culture & preferences.

Here I am! On a mission to steal some knowledge in making kuehs!

Lek Lim Nonya Cake Confectionery has been around since the 1960s. They started out as a humble family business believing that delicious kueh can bring joy to anyone who tastes them. Now, with the third generation of the family running the business, Lek Lim has preserved their culture & tradition, making kuehs as good as before.

Thanks to Ver for bringing me to such a different experience. 😉

Yes, we learnt to make ang ku kueh!

Ang Ku Kueh: Chewy glutinous flour skin filled with crunchy ground peanut paste in the shape of a tortise.

But of course to keep us from sweating madly, the boss, Gavan, already had the ingredients prepared for us.

Time to wrap some Pulut Inti Nonya!

I remember Mom loves buying this. 😉

I like my yam cake steamed instead of deep fried! I love most of my food soft & mashy one. ;-p

But… fried ones look good too!

Best thing, I realized their kuehs are quite cheap!

See here.

Don’t worry! It’s just Ver’s creation of her bring-home ang ku kueh!

Lek Lim Nonya Cake Confectionery is halal certified.
