Popiah Adventure – the complete Popiah experience

Min. Pax: 2

Duration:  90 min

Time Slot: 11.30 am / 6.00 pm

Popiah is an iconic Singapore street food that has been a local favourite throughout the generations. Although it looks similar to a wrap or burrito at first glance, popiah is rolled up with a much thinner piece of dough skin that accentuates the flavors of its ingredients within.

At Kway Guan Huat, we hand-make popiah skin the traditional way, which involves taming a fickle dollop of dough and successfully cooking popiah skin instead of our own. After a demonstration by the popiah masters, you’re more than welcomed to try your hand at this time-honored craft yourself!

This tour also includes a history of Joochiat, popiah and our heritage. We are the pioneers of popiah in Singapore and have been serving this local delight for more than 80 years. Different techniques of the trade were honed and passed down by our forefathers to ensure that the popiah you eat today is as good as the one created 8 decades ago.

After the history lesson, everyone is invited to wrap their own popiah with our prepared ingredients. Some of the ingredients, like crispy fritters and sauces, are home-made recipes that cannot be found anywhere else. Although there’s an established method of wrapping popiah, there’s no hard and fast rule to it which means there’s no way of getting it wrong. Wrap your popiah the traditional way.. or not! The only rules here are the ones you set.

The tour ends with a communal feast known locally as zichar. Familiar Singapore delicacies are brought out and shared together on a table with new and old friends alike.

Kindly note that the minimum number of visitors for this tour to happen is 2. Feel free to drop us an email if you’ve got any questions about the tour : )
