(Chinese) snacks that we grew up eating :)

Quality of pancakes is consistent! I think my fav combi here is the green tea pancake with red bean filling - the green tea gives a slight, subtle bitterness that complements the red bean. I like it better than the original pancake as it’s something different from other mjk stalls.

The charcoal pancake didn’t really make a difference I feel. And the black sesame was rly too much for us, it’s very dense and heavy, not in a good way, was rather cloying. Granted, it wasn’t very sweet, but I think something more similar in texture to tangyuan filling would be more palatable. We had some difficulty trying to finish this so we’ll be sticking to the red bean :p

Had munchi a couple of times and while it’s not bad, I wouldn’t go as far to call it the best mjk. The pancake itself is chewy and has nice bubbles/holes which is indicative of nice structure, but it’s not as soft as Tanglin halt mjk / granny’s pancake which I prefer. This one gives a bit more resistance when biting into it. The fillings were decent, I like their red bean (they have a good supplier) but coconut could be juicier.

Had this quite a few times when I was younger, but I can’t remember if the pastry skin always had this strong margarine flavour, or if my tastebuds have changed. It tasted very traditional because of the margarine, but I don't like margarine lol. Skin texture is nice tho - slightly crispy, very flaky outers. Filling to skin ratio is like 2:1? Doesn’t get cloying, very easy to eat.

With sesame seeds = sweet. The filling was like lotus paste. Paste is quite smooth!

Without sesame seeds = salty. The mung bean filling had a slight saltiness, but it’s not super salty, just more savoury in comparison to the sweet paste.

I think I like the salty one slightly more!

This had an palatable eggy, kinda like kueh bahulu flavour. Tasted better on second day? It was more moist and light. But I thought it could have been more fluffy, this was a wee bit on the denser side. An old school snack that I don’t mind having, but their behtehsoh / tausarpiah is still my favourite snack of theirs.

This was average, it was thick and chewy but I would prefer if it was just a tad softer. Fillings were pretty standard, coco was juicy and peanut was crunchy. I wouldn’t mind repurchasing if I happened to walk past, but if I’m in the area I would rather go to Hong Lim / Chinatown Complex.

The sweet tsp filling was very soft, they lightly sweetened the green bean so it’s not too sweet. The salty filling was quite melt-in-the-mouth, pretty savoury and flavourful; my friend and I liked it! Would repurchase :)

Crust was meh. Better when reheated, but still not great. For the filling its much much firmer than hangheung’s lpb, there's some crunchy thing? Also it has the banana soft roll taste. I wouldn’t repurchase.

Got both the sweet and salty ones. It was kinda floury, slightly crunchy but the pastry part was not v nice. The salty one is nicer, sweet one is ok only. Don’t think I’ll repurchase.

I will stick to the sweet bean filling one as the peanut filling is a bit too dense, like a dry-ish paste. The skin is nice as usual but it would help if their peanut filling is more flowy. That said, flavour-wise it was not bad, a good balance of sweet & savoury.

I love jixiang, it’s my fav place for akk! The skin is not too thick, the sweet bean filling is well balanced. Have eaten this since young so of course I’m biased towards it. I find this better compared to poh cheu, but if you prefer a big variety of flavours you might be better off at poh cheu. Their skin is thicker tho. I like sweet bean-filled akk best so it’s always jixiang for me :)

Pastry was crisp and flaky, black sesame filling was earthy with sweetness that was just nice - not too little such that it tastes bland, and not too much such that it is overly sweet. I’ve walked past many many times without getting anything, so thank you to my friend for gifting it to me! Will return to try other traditional Chinese snacks :)

Second time having Galicier's kuehs! My favs are the kueh dardar ($0.80/piece) - really soft chewy skin wrapped around joosy coconut shreds (you can really feel the juice oozing out as you bite into it); and kueh kosui ($0.80) - super soft and kinda melt in your mouth, with a nice coffee flavour. Kueh salat ($1.10) was decent but I've had better, while the tapioca cake ($0.70) was a bit too firm/coarse for my liking. Tried kueh ambon/honeycomb cake ($1.40) for the first time, and while it was interesting it wouldn't be my first choice of kuehs to buy. It has a subtle lemongrass(?) taste and wasn't very sweet, but kinda oily. Nice honeycomb structure tho!
