Oleh Oleh Parkway Parade

“Ole Ole” is a chant being heard often in England now that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revived the fortunes of Manchester United football club. In sunny Singapore, since our national sport is said to be eating, “Ondeh Ondeh, Nyonya Kueh Boleh” could well be our version of the “ole chant”. If Oleh Oleh Parkway Parkway starts using that as its slogan, we will be asking for royalty. We will happily accept payment in ondeh ondeh.

Oleh Oleh is a cafe in Parkway Parade which sells Malay kuehs. It also offers coffee, tea and juices. Located in the open concourse just outside HSBC, it is more like a takeaway food kiosk. However, there are a few tables for patrons. It is a convenient spot to sit in air-conditioned comfort and have a snack while waiting for your transport. The taxi stand and passenger pick up point is just a glass door away from Oleh Oleh cafe.

The self service cafe offers a range of sweet and savoury snacks as well nasi lemak. The prices are very reasonable

We have tried many items from Oleh Oleh Parkway Parade over the years. At our recent visit we had their Talam Keladi ($1), made from tapioca flour and coconut milk with yam giving the kueh’s top layer the nice purplish colour. The texture was a bit chewy but the taste was nice.

The ondeh ondeh ($0.80) of Oleh Oleh cafe is quite large. It may be a bit too big to pop into the mouth in one go. The glutinous rice balls filled with gula Melaka had pandan scented dough which was thick enough to provide a good bite. The sweet filling was luscious.

Oleh Oleh Kueh Kosui

Oleh Oleh’s Kueh Kosui ($1.30), made from tapioca starch, rice flour and gula Melaka, came it a rather big slab topped with a heap of grated coconut. It was quite firm and the taste was rich. A good version of kueh kosoi.

If you want to try an assortment of kuehs, you can get the Pack of Assorted Kuehs ($2.60). Ours came with kueh lapis, harun manis, keuh bakar and talam lepat. The assorted pack is great for a tea time snack with a cup of freshly brewed coffee ($2.90).

Oleh Oleh Cafe in Parkway Parade is a good spot for snacks anytime of the day and for takeaway as well. We like the various reasonably priced Malay kuehs we can find there. Ondeh Ondeh Boleh!
