    Tutu Kueh! Yummy! Guess I was lucky, as I was the last customer who ordered the Durian filling ones. So they stuffed all the remaining bits of fresh durian into my kueh!

    As it was late, there were many diners at Food Republic. And many ordering their Tutu. Although I was very full, I couldn't resists trying the durian tutu. They're slightly more expensive, 3 for $2. But for me, I find that its surely worth it.

    Can't compare the usual fillings with those in my photos as I was lucky to be the last customers. You can see that the filling was so much that it cracked the surface of the tutu!

    I will surely go back for more durian tutus. Yummilicious!

    Thanks to Great Sage for posting his reviews. It reminded me about my encounter with them! :)

    Walking along Orchard Road can be a tiring thing especially when you have a hungry stomach. This exactly happened to me and i am in search for something to fill up my stomach. Well, since im in a rather odd hour (mid afternoon), i decided to get something light, fearing that i may not be able to eat my dinner afterwards.

    I was walking around food republic (located in Wisma atria), thinking of what to eat, when my eyes suddenly light up upon seeing the cart.

    Ok, its a rather ordinary cart, the thing that actually interest me is the food that they are selling and its...... tu tu kueh. Tutu kueh is small and it is light, which totally fits into my searching category.

    Being really excited to see tutu kueh selling on a Orchard Road, i walked straight to the cart in small quick steps. Just before i began to order, i saw a small white paper with the following words printed on it: 4 for $2

    This i believe is much more expensive than those selling in neighbourhood areas. Well, perhaps their store rental is much higher is these area which result in a much more expensive sale price. Nevertheless, i still ordered their tutu kueh.

    The store seller then took two tu tu kueh (steaming in the hot steamer) and two tu tu kueh (from the container which i believe have been made ready for some time) and pack them for me. I almost could not believe my eyes. I have never seen any tutu kueh seller remake the tutu kueh as they always do it right on the spot when i ordered for it.

    Oh well, since i have already paid for it, i will have to eat them. The two tu tu kuehs (steaming in the hot steamer) tasted really much better than the other two. First thing is definitely their skin, those that were make earlier has a rather hard texture skin which did not taste as nice. Being not as hot as those right out from the steamer, the hard texture become much more significant.

    Secondly, is the filling which i find them somehow much lesser than those steaming in the steamer ones. However, i quite like the taste of the coconut filling. Their coconut fillings is dark brown in colour and i feel that they taste much better than those orange colour. Perhaps it is due to the guala melaka that they added in to their coconut filling.

    Overall, i think the tutu kueh taste pretty alright. If possible, do try and request those steaming in the steamer ones. They really do taste much better.
