📍Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry, Tiong Bahru📍
Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry's one of our favourite places to get traditional kuehs, and we're so sad that they're closing down soon😫! Got ourselves a last round of kuehs and pastries, including the Putu Ayu, Kueh Salat, Kueh Dadar, Kueh Ambon, Custard Tart and Custard Puff🤤. We exceptionally love their Putu Ayu, which is steamed pandan sponge cake with grated coconut🥥and flavoured with gula melaka. The pandan sponge cake is soft and airy, and not too sweet when topped with the sweet and savoury grated coconut, making it a perfect light afternoon snack☕! The Kueh Dadar is good too, as the crepe is soft and the grated coconut is fragrant. We love their pastries as they're delicious and not too sweet, making it perfect for everyone in our family🙌. Will miss it dearly when it's gone😢!

The queue to get in here is longer than you'd guess since they announce their closure. I managed to find some time on a weekday morning just to have a last taste of these freshly made in-house Nyonya kuehs and I’m glad the queue was just 15mins long. Due to high demand, there is an order limit of 2 boxes per pax for Kueh Dadar, Putu Ayu and Ondeh Ondeh.

Sadly they did not have Ondeh Ondeh during my visit but I still get my hands on their popular Putu Ayu along with Kueh Kosui, Pandan Tapioca, Lemper Udang and Kueh Salat 🤤 》$13.90

Putu Ayu is basically steamed pandan mini cake crowned with grated coconut. The top consists of white grated coconut with gula melaka while the bottom is the pandan cake steamed to an individual flower shape.

The texture of Kueh Kosui is perfect, chewy and not too soft or hard. Pandan tapioca comes with a nice fragrance of coconut with a texture firmer than the former. Lemper Udang has spicy shrimp in a glutinous rice roll filled with a coconut aroma. It has a good ratio of rice to spicy shrimp and it’s something more savoury compared to the other kinds of kueh. Last but not least, the custard layer made with eggs and coconut milk on Kueh Salat is soft, smooth, rich and goes very well with the firm bottom layer of glutinous rice with coconut milk.


Situated along Tiong Bahru Road, TBGP has been around for 40+ years and specialises in Nonya kuehs.

When news first broke, the queue was very long. Came around 4pm on a weekday, by then all the Putu Ayu finished. Auntie say all gone in the morning, people came and bought in packets of 10s.

While queuing, saw everyone have a box of chiffon cake, feel very left out if I didn't get 1 for myself.

All the pastries I had, all were very good, I especially like their egg Tarts the most. Cream puffs were great and so were the Kueh Ambon.

Come and get this piece of history before it's gone this end of June 2022.

I believe the green ones don't have gula melaka inside for this place?

Nonetheless because the coconut was fresh this was delightful. Most places don't use super fresh coconut flakes

We think this might be the place with the best kuehs. We had the following and they are ALL SUPERBLY GOOD.

Kueh dar dar (which they are quite well known for)
Kueh kosui
Pandan tapioca
Baked tapioca
Kueh salat
Kueh ambon

We also had the carrot walnut cheesecake but we think it wasn't that good and will just stick to the kuehs next time.

Putu ayu and a more generic kueh. They're all good here. A true master.
