1. Ji Xiang Confectionery
Since it opened for business in 1988, Ji Xiang has been reinventing the traditional Nonya Ang Ku Kueh with unique flavours such as salted bean, corn, coconut, and even durian![caption id="attachment_16112" align="aligncenter" width="501"] Coconut Ang Ku Kueh[/caption]

Dubbed The Best Traditional Kueh in town, Simple Delite is popular among the Muslim community with its authentic halal Malay kueh.
Serving freshly made and piping hot kueh for more than 15 years, the must-try kueh here is the Kueh Lopis (sticky rice with sweetened gula melaka and shredded coconut).
Made with only a few ingredients, the glutinous rice is tender and not too dense. The shredded coconut has just the right amount of salt, giving the perfect balance of sweet and savoury!
The kuehs here usually sell out by noon, so be sure to come early!
