It might have already two years old - but for me, Chalk Farm is my find of the year where cake-sized Nyonya kuehs are concerned. Chalk Farm at the basement of Paragon shopping centre has the richest, tastiest “kueh sarlat” I’d ever tasted in Singapore!
- Best “kueh sarlat” in town - creamy, pandan-scented, coconut crème-enriched “kaya” custard atop salty-sweet glutinous rice tinted blue using “bunga telang” - Nyonya tradition never tasted so good!
- “Kueh Lapis” - their version has 10-layers instead of the traditional 9-layers. Taste-wise, also pretty good, but not as outstanding as the “kueh sarlat”.
- Chocolate Guinness Cake – I wouldn’t mind more Guinness (alcohol) .
- Sugee cake - above average, although not as rich as Mary Gomes’ or Quentin Pereira’s:
Good selection of cakes - no time to try them all yet:
