12 places to get fluffy Min Jiang Kueh in Singapore from just S$0.70 for a sweet taste of nostalgia

by Evan Mua

Remember all those snacks you loved when you were growing up? Nostalgia has been making quite a huge impact on Singapore F&B in recent years, with mama shop concepts and childhood snacks being especially popular. But what many may not know is there’s an obsession with Min Jiang Kueh amongst the younger crowd in Singapore.

Yes, you’d find that Instagram is surprisingly filled with posts about the soft and chewy pancakes. And they’re becoming even more popular as more stores add fun twists like using orh nee or black sesame for Min Jiang Kueh fillings instead of traditional peanuts or red bean.

If you’re also craving a fluffy piece of nostalgia, we’ve got some places for you to get your hands on some of these old-school goodies from as cheap as S$0.70.

Munchi Delights

Munchi is probably one of the most popular stalls that helped fuel the Min Jiang Kueh resurgence in Singapore.

More importantly, they provide wacky fillings such as Oreo Cheese (S$1.80), Matcha (S$1.80) and Black Seasame (S$1.80)

You can get a Cone (S$1) stuffed with peanut, red bean, coconut, or chocolate or go for the conventional Min Jiang Kueh (S$0.70) if you’re more traditional.
