What’s so good 😊?
Owner, Mr Goh come to his stall very early in the wee hours of the morning to prepare his ingredients daily. Made fresh everyday with hand 🖐 🤚 crafted from the dough to the ingredients and to the folding and the pinching then to steaming and to frying ... I am happy to note that 2G (2nd Generation) are learning the OJT (On The Job) ... 😮 🤩 👍
After 10mins of Q, due to social distancing, I have taken every opportunity to photo interesting close shots of their making of their amicable and delightfully QQ texture and tastefully Teochew Kuehs.
Its truly Old School with the traditional taste. The flattening of the dough w/ roller stick, the round patterns cut, removal, twist and turns of the folding of the dough, filling w/ their individual Kuehs of differing ingredients, using the white skin vs the red skin dough... closing the dough, knit & hand crafted individually b4 laying down onto the steaming layered wok ... it’s SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) and processes driven ... 😮 🤩 ⭐️ 👍
Then, bringing the steaming wok layered trays to steam with specific timing and fire 🔥 control and the process repeat per batches ... 😮
Though I am not Teochew but has many Teochew friends ... I always loved to joke about this phrase in Teochew :”Teochew lang kar chen ang ang, ba si bo siang kang” - literally meant that Teochew people ass is red red, beat each other also never mind: meaning Teochew people are closely knitted people always helping and caring for one another , I think 🤔 ... that’s so true ! 😮 🤩
Back to the stall, my turn came. I ordered and requested for the steamed version of Soon Kueh x 2 and Png Kueh x 2 (glutinous 🍚) on takeaway and disposable mode then DIY with the black sweeten sauce and chillies 🌶.
