Joo Chiat Kim Choo is a household name in Singapore, known for its authentic rice dumplings made from recipes passed down through generations. This beloved tradition has been perfected over time, resulting in the creation of top-quality, hand-wrapped dumplings that are crafted with care and dedication.

A New Chapter in Tradition

Recently, Joo Chiat Kim Choo opened its new flagship store at Circuit Road, introducing new flavours and expanding its menu to include other local delights such as Nasi Lemak, Mee Siam and Traditional Nyonya Kueh, all served alongside local Kopi and Teh. The Golden Pearl of Joo Chiat, as it is fondly called, prides itself on producing top-quality products served with personable touches for memorable experiences.

The Art of Dumpling Making

Each of the triangular parcels of dumplings is hand-wrapped with love and care to ensure that they are crafted to satisfy every taste bud. The dumplings are made from harmonious blends of sweet and savoury flavours that are consistent in quality and made in an ISO 22000-certified facility. This attention to detail ensures that each dumpling is unique and charming, just like Joo Chiat Kim Choo.

Savoury Delights of Heritage

Joo Chiat Kim Choo’s menu is full of savoury delights steeped in tradition. Their premium line features the Emperor’s Rice Dumpling, made with fragrant glutinous rice and filled with premium braised pork, dried scallops, Chinese lup cheong sausage, and salted egg yolk, resulting in an incomparable earthy flavour. Additionally, it includes ginkgo nuts, chestnuts, and shiitake mushrooms, adding a nutty texture to the dish.

Signature flavours that have made Joo Chiat Kim Choo famous include the Nyonya Rice Dumpling, packed with braised pork belly and winter melon strips in glutinous rice, seasoned with Joo Chiat Kim Choo’s Secret Spice Blend. Other must-try flavours are the Hokkien Rice Dumpling stuffed with mouth-watering braised pork belly, chestnut, and mushroom, as well as the Cantonese Bean Rice Dumpling of braised pork belly embellished with chestnut, mushroom, and green beans.

Sweet Treats of Tradition

Aside from the savoury rice dumplings, Joo Chiat Kim Choo also offers sweet rice dumplings made with traditional recipes and techniques. The Classic Kee Zhang steams golden glutinous rice with fragrant bamboo leaves for little parcels that present an unforgettable chewiness when eaten with kaya. Elevating the experience is the Kee Zhang with Red Bean that hides a heart of red bean paste within the golden glutinous rice.
