Chinese New Year Part 6 - Otah and Curry Puff/Soon Kueh

To Educators and Parents! - Worksheets for this location are available. To purchase, please proceed to Worksheets and Companion page.

Okay after the walk in the garden, it is time for more food! What shall we try now, how about some local food enjoy by most Singaporeans. I am going to introduce an otah factory (Lee Wee Brothers) and "Soon kueh"/curry puff factory (My Genie Gourmet) (side by side neighbors).

Situated in a private estate zone in Hougang, the whiff of BBQ otah will be detected long before you even see the shop.

Purchase the fresh and hot otah (made a few minutes ago) and eat it in the rustic surrounding. Else, try the puffing hot curry puff while having some coffee!

Learn how the Otah are made. Taste different sample of Otahs before making your purchase!

Walk over to the other end of the row of shop house to buy some curry puff. Observe how the aunties fold and insert the fillings into the dough with their nimble hands.

For those with kids or elderly, buy a box of "Soon Kueh" for supper to complete the day.

Take a look at the otah making process below.

Otah and Curry Puff factories are classifed as part of Factory Tours and Educational Tours.
