Kway Guan Huat’s Live Popiah-making Demonstration

Date: 5 July
Time: 2 PM - 2.20PM


The iconic Singapore wrap, popiah, is well-loved throughout the generations, and looks similar to a burrito at first glance. However, popiah is rolled up with a much thinner piece of dough skin with completely different local ingredients within.


As one of the popiah pioneers in Singapore, Kway Guan Huat has been serving this local delight for the past 80 years. The food demonstration will share more about the history of the popiah and the shop’s heritage. Different techniques of the trade were honed and passed down through generations to ensure the popiah you eat today is as good as the one eight decades ago. A popiah master will also demonstrate the traditional art of making the dough and popiah skins, recommend the fillings of a good popiah and how to best wrap up that perfect roll!


About Kway Guan Huat Joo Chiat Popiah


Over three generations, their Peranakan-Hokkien popiah recipe has preserved a taste of the past for the Joo Chiat community. A soft crepe, popiah skin may look simple to the uninitiated. However, making the delicate popiah skin is a fast-vanishing culinary skill in our modern metropolis. Founded as a humble popiah skin business from a small shophouse unit 81 years ago, Kway Guan Huat has grown into a famous eatery and culinary icon on the strength of their paper-thin popiah skin, delicate yet hardy enough to hold a refreshing sweet-savoury vegetable filling.
