The Best Kueh Bangkit in Singapore
Kueh bangkit is the melt-in-your-mouth treat that everyone looks forward to at Chinese New Year. Believe it or not, it is a delicacy used also by other races during their own festive occasions.
The tapioca cookie is created from relatively simple ingredients — tapioca flour, eggs, pandan leaves, sugar and coconut milk.
But getting it just right, with a crisp outer shell and soft middle, is an art. One could be handed a coveted secret recipe and still be unable to replicate what the the best in the CNY Goodies industry can achieve.
Luckily, for those of us too busy to spend hours in the kitchen, there are plenty of stores and bakeries selling mouth-wateringly good Kueh Bangkit for Chinese New Year
To help you on your quest for the perfect treat, here are eight top places to buy Kueh Bangkit in Singapore!
Bing Liang Bakery
Bing Liang Bakery claims to have ‘arguably the best Kueh Bangkit in Singapore’, and we certainly couldn’t argue with that. Thanks to using premium grade tapioca flour and years of altering the recipe looking for perfection, Bing Liang Bakery produces exquisite Kueh Bangkit time and time again.
The Kueh Bangkit from Bing Liang transforms into a creamy yet chewy solution while you swirl it around within your mouth. It is not too sweet and is pretty addictive. Unlike most online retailers, they do have a tasting venue which allows you to ensure you get to buy something you truly believe in. It is unfortunate that their Gula Melaka Bangkit is currently out of stock. Through our research, Bing Liang is the only Chinese New Year Goodies store selling that.
Price: S$14.90 for a box of 30 to 35 cookies weighing at 200 g. 20% discount code ‘CNY2019’ available until 15 January 2019.
Traditional, fragrant, with the right amount of coconut milk taste.
No-one makes Kueh Bangkit quite like Poon. The next best thing, however, might well be their other CNY Cookies. The 4 decade old business has put full commitment into evolving their recipes. Their expansion to Singapore in 2018 has certainly put a smile on the faces of many.

Our all time favourite snack from Bengawan Solo is their Lemper Udang. This Hae Bee Hiam snack made with sticky rice is something the staff at Masons Home Decor would always make a point to buy whenever they passed an outlet! But that is not the only snack we love from Bengawan Solo. Their Kueh Bangkit is to die for. Bengawan Solo started life when founder Tjendri Anastasia moved to Singapore from Indonesia. From her small home kitchen Anastasia produced delightful goodies that became the talk of the neighbourhood. However, her home set-up caught the eye of the Ministry of Environment who told her to close the business. Thankfully, it was this that made Anastasia set up the business we know and love today. Pick up a tray of their Indonesian Kueh Bangkit for a special treat this CNY. The exceptionally presentable packaging also makes it a perfect gift for whoever is hosting a party!
