Dong Hong at Stall 62 of the Taman Sri Tebrau Hawker Centre is popular among JB locals for traditional Teochew kueh. The moment they open for business at 4pm from Saturday to Tuesday, regulars descend on the stall to take away bags of their favourite Teochew kueh 😄

Stall owner Chee Siong's mum had been running Dong Hong kueh stall here for 30 years. Chee Siong joined her and eventually took over the stall over ten years ago.

Li Mean who is an ACCA qualified accountant joined Chee Siong at the stall after they marry.

Together, Chee Siong and Li Mean make a bewildering variety of savoury and sweet Teochew kueh. There are also Malay kueh like ondeh ondeh etc.

I tried some savoury kueh. Chee Siong and Li Mean make everything from scratch with fresh ingredients, including the chili sauce. 

I like the savoury sweet chili sauce with a briefly lingering mild spicy kick. It has a thick sticky texture as Chee Siong adds starch to it so that the sauce can stick to the kueh. Nice.

Fresh chives always works for me. The skin is made with a blend of wheat and tapioca flour.

I love radish cake especially when it is softly tender inside and aromatic as the mash is made with lots of real radish.

The greased skin of the sweet kueh are made with glutinous rice flour and filled with crushed peanuts, grated coconut, green bean mash or red bean mash. All are hand made by Chee Siong and Li Mean. I love all of the them 😋

My favourites are those filled with bean mash, both red and green.

They are not overly sweet and have a slight graininess which I love.

  1. Are they opened on Saturdays? Content says Sun-Tue, but ending says closed on Wed-Fri. Would love to pop by if they are

    1. Hi George, I am checking with Chee Siong now. Thanks for pointing out. Appreciate it.

    2. Yes, they are open Sat to Tues. My mistake. Thanks for pointing out :-D


I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints as it makes this blog better :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is unethical in the same way as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
