Tan's Tu Tu Coconut Cake
The most authentic and original Tutu Kueh in Singapore. With over 80 years of history, it makes us the longest-running Tutu Kueh stall in Singapore. Our father, the late Tan Yong Fa is the the inventor of the Tutu Kueh - the little steamed rice-flour cakes that is now known as a traditional delicacy.
We have two stalls - one at Havelock Road and the other at Clementi - selling a a variety of fillings including original (plain), crushed peanuts, coconut and the new dark chocolate flavour that we introduced it a few years ago to attract the younger crowd.
Here at Tan Tutu, we make all our ingredients by hand, including roasting the peanuts, tempering the dark chocolate chips and pounding the rice and sieving the flour. We pound the rice using the same machine since the 1960s as we believe in making the most authentic Singaporean dish for our customers to enjoy.
Although it takes us at least 10 hours a day to prepare and sell tutu kuehs, our father has instilled a believe that we will not shortchange our customers and we have to do it well and perfect. We have been following it since and are most happy when our customers are happy and satisfied.

Old Amoy Chendol
Located at the famous Chinatown Complex Food Centre, we specialise in just one dish: Chendol. This traditional dessert cannot be as commonly found in Singapore as it used to be in the past, and we take pride in our ability to push out authentic bowls of this classic sweet treat. To consistently push out quality bowls of chendol, we make sure that we use only the freshest ingredients that are all carefully sourced. For instance, we source the nectar of coconut from places like Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. Our 100% coconut milk is also cold-pressed daily so you get its full potential of flavour. In addition, we use Japanese adzuki red beans that are cooked over a charcoal fire to give it that fragrant smoky taste and smell that really adds dimension to the dessert. We insist on preparing everything by hand and every part of the cooking process needs to be carefully timed and executed so that we can produce chendol of the best quality. Despite the effort that goes into it, we still keep the prices at $2 per bowl so that everyone can enjoy our traditional chendol. Do swing by to try it; we would be happy to let you have a taste of our version of this nostalgic dessert!
