This third-generation heritage hawker sells all things golden and lovely. Come here for some fluffy and crisp You Tiao (dough fritters) or to try the chewy Jian Dui (fried sesame balls).
You Tiao is perfect a snack on its own, but it is also traditionally eaten with congee or dunked in soy milk. Jian Dui is a Cantonese deep-fried pastry made from glutinous rice flour, and is often found in dim sum restaurants or Hong Kong style bakeries.
Located at Commonwealth Drive Food Centre, Fu Xin You Tiao Jian Dui is run by Mr Chua Kee Hock, 66, and his wife, Madam Chan Lay Lee, 59. They have recently been joined by their daughter, 36-year-old Ms Chua Leng Lin, a former pre-school teacher who gave up her job to help her parents.
Gourmet treasure hunters must definitely try this heritage stall, a place where You Tiao and Jian Dui are as good as gold.
