Haig Road Putu Piring

Our family has enjoyed Putu Piring from this stall for years, and we have tracked its moves faithfully from previous locations (coffeeshops etc) to its current address at a hawker centre near Aljunied MRT.

We bought a friend a few packets recently, and he commented that it tasted superb, though he never knew he was living in such close proximity to this delicacy. So here it is, a full blog post for the record.


Look at the number of awards the stall proudly displays under its signboard! The makciks here are always dressed all in white, and keep a lively conversation going as they work. They can be a bit fierce at times, but we remain ever so grateful to them for bringing us this dish!


Basically, if you want to eat Putu Piring, this is the only one place in Singapore to head to.

The Putu Piring here is always freshly handmade, with generous portions of gula melaka served in perfect proportions with the white rice flour kueh. Every bite is filled with yumminess. The fragrant snippets of small pandan leaves just add to the awesomeness of this entire delicacy.


Some people confuse this with Kueh Tutu, its (to me) inferior cousin.

The difference between Putu Piring and Kueh Tutu is that the former is made with gula melaka, whereas the latter is made with orange sugar coconut filling. For Putu Piring, shredded fresh white coconut is served beside. Sedap.


At a packet of 5 for $2, it is just another sterling example of how good food need not cost an arm and a leg. The hubs will choose this over a fancy $20 dessert anytime. Enjoy.

    Oh! I’m one of those who thought Putu Piring and Kueh Tutu are the same! Now, I must make the husb drive me there one of these days to try this, thanks for recommending 😀

      Yes, especially if you’re in the area (it’s next to ONE KM mall), must try!

      When we were there recently, there was a Frenchman and his Singaporean wife in the queue, trying to find out more about this… 🙂
