    Very rarely can one find an assortment of traditional nonya kuehs and dumplings which are authentic and hand-made. Prices may be steeper, but you are paying for authenticity and quality. My personal favourites are the nonya chang and the ondeh ondeh. Beware of the fake brand named “Joo Chiat Kim Choo…” which is copied by the neo group. Only go for “Kim Choo Kueh Chang”, which is located at 60 Joo Chiat place.

    Not only are they getting expensive. The dumplings standards are dropping. Second time in a row that I found their rice is not cooked properly. It’s a pity that such a legendary shop is fading away. I had visited their shop at 60 Joo Chiat Place on 17 July 2022

    Did an online order for the dumplings. Not sure how fresh it was as the leaves were abit dry for the Kee Chang. And probably due to the upcoming festival, they may have had temp staff doing the wrapping.. the shapes of the Chang was a disappointment (and when price has increased).

    Just bought some nyoya dumplings, nyoya kueh, lempah Udang, soon kueh from this shop in Joo Chiat.

    Pricey n very lousy customer experience (no receipt) n the 30+ Guy tending to store seems to give an impression that “buyers already know the init price for the stuff sold there”.

    Taste : Forget the soon kueh, nyona kueh n lempah Udang. U get better consistent taste in large slices from Bangawan Solo for the same price.

    Nyoya Dumpling at $3.50 each now being steamed so no comments yet. But sure is pricey. If i do revisit, its only for the Nyonya dumplings NOTHING else. Would I even think of returning as a customer? Most Unlikely as with I like to associate the buying journey with good experience with People keen to service their customers. Kim Choo may be a very established old shop but if they keep this service attitude up, they will soon get the results they deserve; less returning customers!!

    I am one who want to support local products, local sellers, local food. But Kim Choo is not going to be in my list anymore!

    Still the go-to place for Chinese dumplings – never mind if they have outlets all over Singapore. My favourite is still the Hokkien version with salted egg yolks. The peranakan styled Nonya dumpling (which gave rise to Kim Choo legacy) is a must-try.

    Update: the old venerable lady manning the counter has “retired” according to the young man with fluent mandarin. Sigh. Another icon faded away…. He is young but lacks the encyclopedic knowledge of Kim Choo’s variety of bakchangs. No dialects. No English. Just fluent mandarin.

    Update July 2021: they have upgraded their service crew and process. Now more pleasant and efficient.

    One of the most authentic Peranakan places that showcases a Peranakan history museum, restaurant, retail corner and Nyona kuehs takeaways. Popular stopover for wives of visiting foreign dignitaries. Variety of Nyona kuehs available are quite limited but tasty. Famous for their bak chang (glutinous rice dumplings).

    Just had their Nonya Zhang and Salted Egg Zhang today. Prefer the former for the sweetness of the winter melon, which is a perfect balance to the savoury flavour of the meat and rice. Cashier was polite and helpful, nothing like what some of the other reviews described.

    Two price increases during since Pandemic started. Used to cost $3 per Nonya Bak Chang. Then became $3.80 per Nonya Bak Chang. Today it’s $4.50 per Nonya Bak Chang. I know there is inflation but this is profiteering!

    We are two days apart from dumpling festival 2021 so do expect long queue. I q for 2 hours.

    Tips:
    Bring cash, they only transact cash

    Wear comfort clothes. Although you q in shade, the heat wave is strong.

    Think of how to entertain yourself during the 2 hours q, may include bringing a power bank for your phone.

    Eat fresh of course taste the best (on the very day)

    This place used to be renowned for the various type of rice dumplings. However of late and probably because the business was grossly affected by the pandemic the food quality had not been as good as before. Parking would be a big hassle as parking lots are limited.

    My go-to place for Ba Zhang. They have Ba Zhang in a myriad of styles, from the popular Hokkien style and Teochew styles to my pick of the bunch, their Nonya Style Ba Zhang. Their Nonya Style Ba Zhang is different from your expectations of other similar styles in that it is not so sweet, instead having more or a savoury taste with succulent marinated pork. Plus, their glutinous rice is steamed to perfection, making for a sumptuous treat, even when it’s not Duan Wu Jie!

    They seemed to make it in a hurry. The dumplings needed to be cooked in water for another hour or so. If not the rice is hard. Dumpling rice should be soft to eat immediately when open. For the peice you pay the quality should be above others in the industry.

    Kim Choo Kueh Chang has been operating out of a shophouse in Joo Chiat since 1945. It is most famous for its Nyonya Rice Dumpling (or Nyonya chang) and Traditional Salty Dumpling (or bak chang) but it also has a wide range of Nyonya kuehs, cookies and other snacks. Kim Choo Kueh Chang may also be the subject of another food fued in the East – like the Katong Laksa saga and the mee pok war (see The Straits Times Archives for 5 famous Singapore food feuds).

    Their vegetarian bachang is so good. I bought one just to try the other day, and i went back in the next few days to get more. It’s filled with mushrooms and seasoned well. I’m not a vegetarian but I appreciate such a clean alternative, because the pork chang can be quite fatty. Come early especially on dumpling day. You have to line up for 15-30 minutes in the afternoon and they sell out very fast.

    Was craving for cantonese rice dumplings and heard this is a famous one. Went down at 7sth pm during the Dragon Boat Festival, there was no queue at that time.

    It looked good but a bit smaller compare to my mom’s one and the salted egg yolk was missing. Overall, the taste was not bad and it helped to settle my cravy. It is not easy to find authentic Cantonese rice dumpling but it’s okay. I still love the melting fatty meat .

    Another time I went again to buy alkaline rice dumpling. It was cheap. I thought there should be red bean paste inside but no. It’s my bad, my misunderstanding. Because the authentic Hong Kong one is always with red bean paste. I loved it to dip with sugar. It brought back my childhood memory.

    Oops just bought 2 blue nonya n 2 normal nonya dumplings. Didn’t know that they no longer use the natural blue pea powder but a food coloring for their blue nonya dumpling. I thought their normal nonya dumpling tasted above average although wife said it was a little too sweet. Too bad I didn’t see the comment about the blue nonya earlier would have just stuck with the normal nonya dumpling cos the blue ones are a $1 more than the normal ones.

    I came to know this place since I met my girlfriend (now my wife)… back in 1970’s. Until today, I am still patronizing it cos of its dumplings, etc.
    There are more to it than it meets the eyes.
    Trust me ! YOU will not be disappointed.

    *** i will not be tempted to recommend the types of dumplings as taste is very subjective…. for sure it is Nonya dumplings but with different stuffing inside.

    Enjoy !!

    *** there are also typical CNY cookies for sale NOT just dumplings. It is easy to understand in today’s competitive world.

    One of the better quality nyonya kuih in Singapore. Some products are quite pricey. Good to pick the ones that they make themselves.

    Went to buy the dumpling today morning, the queue already form when I was there around 10.30am. Friendly and helpful staff there. Today it is cash only payment. Luckily I am well prepared for it. So far the best taste dumpling I found after comparing. My favourite the Nonya and Chilli prawn.

    14/6/21: I ordered Nonya and chilli prawn, but the sales girl give me the wrong flavour for the chilli prawn. Purple colour string is normal salted pork dumpling, not chilli prawn. Disappointed

    We like their Nyonya chang, ang ku kueh (red tortoise cake with peanut filling), kueh salat and bengkang ubi. All of them are freshly prepared and great tasting. Although similar Nyonya snacks are available elsewhere, those from Kim Choo at Joo Chiat Place have consistently held up to their reputation.

    Arrived at the shop front with long queues of people. That’s the first sign of possible good food. The store specialised in Traditional Nonya Kueh and Dumplings. I went on to queue and saw many customers buying their dumplings. The kueh and dumplings were made fresh and of good quality. They have a good variety of kueh and dumplings to choose from.

    Definitely a good recommendation.

    The quality of their nonya rice dumpling & kueh kueh is inconsistent. Sadly, the standard has dropped over the years though the price has increased. Won’t bother to travel there specifically to get the food. Some of their service staff is curt & arrogant.

    As parents are old, it’s a small price to pay for CNY goodies like the rabbit-shapes agar agar, pineapple tarts etc. The selection of changs are still of good decent quality.
    I just hope they can continue to provide quality, make profit but still set prices that we can afford.

    Old school favourite. The nonya dumpling is still as nice, with generous portion of meat and the rice texture has just the right amount of moist and stickiness.

    As for the salted egg yolk potato chips, the taste is rather light and the chips pretty crispy and in small bite sizes. So it’s easy to eat. For those who like Irvin’s salted egg yolk chips, this may not be as rich in flavor. So it’s good for folks who prefer a lighter taste for their snacks. It’s the same for their salmon skin chips.

    Our favourite NOYA Chang! What impresses us is the consistency of quality & quantity through out the years! Yes the price had been adjusted upwards over the years – but it is still worth our $ for quality food! The only period where the quality fell short was during the peak dragon boat fest period – whereby some of the chang we had bought is not cooked well – hence do avoid the crowd as usual for all food joints

    They also sell many varieties of keropok, kueh kueh and peranakan kueh like dada and ondeh ondeh.

    Hands done the best dumplings in sg. My family loves it so much I come back monthly to stock up their supply. Keep it in the freezer and use the steamer to heat it up. Perfect! I can’t really say the same for their kuehs though, their ondeh ondeh was a little too firm.

    Been getting my nonya dumpling here for decades but replacing the natural butterfly pea flower blue dye with a load of synthetic turquoise dye looks quite unappetizing, not to mention hazardous looking. Ironically they now call it Blue Nyoya.

    The young guy selling can be a little more polite. They are operating a well branded business….get a properly trained sales person!

    $4 each but of with signs of mindless cost cutting, i’ll skip.

    I was so happy when I realised there’s Kim Choo bakchang since it’s a known household brand but I never had the chance to try it. But it was underwhelming…

    The salted bakzhang is so sweet and the pork filling so lean and dry. I had to check against the nonya one to convince myself I got the right dumpling, that’s how confused it left me. I’m not sure if it has anything to do with people opting for healthier options. Just disappointing on a whole.

    I still have so many salted bakzhang w yolks left… Not sure who’s gonna finish it now.
