Top 10 Places to Buy CNY Goodies in Singapore

Chinese New Year Goodies are enjoyed mostly by those who celebrate the Chinese New Year. Singapore being a racially diverse country has resulted in people of one culture getting to know another. What better way to learn of a culture than through food! That being said, it is not uncommon to see a non-Chinese enjoying a bottle of delicious Pineapple Tarts, or Love Letters!

Anyone would tell you that hunting for the best Chinese New Year goodies in Singapore is tough. The famed home bakers often are not able to cope with the volume, and commercial stores are always so packed. This is why we are thankful to be alive in the digital age. Online stores that provide yummy CNY goodies can now be ordered online and delivered to us almost instantaneously!

We have assessed the top 10 CNY Goodies stores in Singapore based on their variety, taste, packaging, and ease of ordering and collecting.

Ding Bakery

 

Pineapple Tarts and Kueh Bangkit from Ding Bakery, voted by the BestinSingapore.sg Editorial Team as the Best Pineapple Tarts in Singapore 2018 and 2019.

We consumers always love a business that tries to revolutionise the industry, or at least, disrupt it. Believe it or not, Ding Bakery offers 90 minute same day delivery to your doorstep! For us, we used this feature when we were considering to use their products as corporate gifts for our clients. It worked out fantastically well! Logistics aside, we have to allocate greater credit to the taste of their Pineapple Tarts and Kueh Bangkit. Our whole office voted that these delicacies from Ding were the best in terms of taste and texture. They both had a melt in your mouth effect. What we hate the most are pineapple tarts with filling that tastes like jam, and kueh bangkit that is actually more crunchy like a cookie than airy.

Variety: 8/10. Approximately 25 CNY goodies products to try from.

Taste: 10/10 from us for their pineapple tarts, kueh bangkit, salted egg popiah skin, and cuttlefish skin crackers. The rest were great too but these ones mentioned literally blew our mind away.

Packaging: 7/10 from us because their bottles are nice with a rose gold coloured lid, which sets it apart from the typical cheaper looking red lid containers. But, there were other shops that had much nicer packaging that was deserving of a 10/10.

Convenience: 10/10 with their 90 minute same day deliver. 90 minute delivery is $14.90 per order, and next day delivery with purchases amounting to more than $100 is free. Otherwise, delivery is $8 per order. Ordering online is also very swift. If you happen to be around the Bishan or Marymount area, their place is available for free tasting just 5 minutes from Marymount MRT. 

Address: 39A Jln Pemimpin #03-01B, Halcyon Building, Singapore 577183

Poon Confectionary

 

Must try goodies from Poon are their salted egg lotus root (in picture), unique blueberry cheese pineapple tart, and traditional dragon beard sugee cake.

Just when you thought businesses around did not hear our screams for help! Another innovative CNY goodies shop offering delivery directly to your door step. Delivery is free for orders above $100 and just $6.90 if your you cannot hit the minimum spend. Poon Confectionary has been around since 1971 and it seems that their product catalogue is inevitably increasing after each year. It is worth noting that that these passionate bakers have spiced things up with really creative flavours worth trying. They even have a taro pineapple tart, mango pineapple tart, and blueberry cheese pineapple tart! We feel that this is an excellent conversation starter and ice breaker to destroy any sort of awkward silence when other families visit your household.

Variety: 10/10. Approximately 45 CNY goodies products to try from.

Taste: 10/10 from us for their pineapple tarts, salted egg lotus root, and blueberry cheese pineapple tart

Pineapple Tarts Singapore

 

As their name suggests, their strength lies in their bigger than usual melt in your mouth pineapple tarts

Their brand name suggests it all. Pineapple Tarts Singapore has had their pineapple tarts reviewed with flying colours on several food critic platforms. Their pineapple tarts are addictive, soft, and with just the right amount of texture. Their other pineapple tart signature products include the flavours of cheese, salted egg, and mala!

Bengawan Solo

 

Literally every cookie item from Bengawan Solo is a must try. Our favourite was their Gula Melaka Kueh Bangkit (in picture)

With outlets scattered in shopping malls island-wide, Bengawan Solo needs no introduction. During non-seasonal occasions, our office is flooded by their Award-Winning Pandan Chiffon Cake, Lempur Udang (spicy shrimp wrapped in glutinous rice), and other assorted Kueh. They are possibly our favourite store! What is worth pointing out is that their cookies are simply amazing! We recommend their cashew sugee cookies, indonesian kueh bagkit, almond nut cookies, and macadamia sugee cookies. They all fall in the price range of $19 to $21 per tray. Seems a little pricey, but for its quality, packaging, and taste, it is totally worth it!

Variety: 10/10. Tons to choose from!

Taste: 10/10 from us for all cookies and cakes.

Packaging: 8/10 from us for their seasonal designs.

Convenience: 7/10. While they can be easily found in many shopping malls, ordering online and opting for delivery is not possible.

Bee Cheng Hiang

 

Famed for their Bakwa, their CNY Goodies are also worth a shot. We love their Hae Bee Hiam Rolls!

Their innovative packaging for their Bakwa (using vacuum packaging) has resulted in Bakwa being a common gift to give your friends visiting Singapore. Or, you could bring it abroad to gift to someone if you are visiting a friend. Their brand in the Bakwa business is so strong that many would say they have been unrivalled for years. It is nice to note too that their CNY goodies are better in taste as compared to other mass market brands. Our favourite is their fragrant hae bee hiam roll. You should defintiely not give this one a miss!
