Thinking of having sweet and chewy kueh, multi-layered lapis cakes, sticky rice snacks this Raya? Ratu Lemper is a great place for you to grab a great selection of traditional Malay treats for you and your loved ones! The shop is most famous for its lemper - a glutinous rice snack wrapped in banana leaves and filled with meat fillings. Other popular snacks include the sweet Ondeh Ondeh and Lapis Sage, stacked in vibrant layers of colour. If you are ordering online, you might want to look at the mixed platters, which include a variety of lemper and tasty sweets and savouries. Do note their Eid pre-order is closed but they have plenty of other goodies for you to pick up at their physical store, right opposite All Things Delicious at Arab Street. Yums!

Unlike the high sodium, artificially preserved, coloured and flavoured snacks we normally purchase from the supermarket, Boxgreen offers a variety of healthy, sweet, and savoury alternatives that are delicious and nutritional. Although most of the Hari Raya gatherings will still be held at home, the easing of social distancing measures means that you’ll be able to host more family and friends this year. So why not be Raya Ready with Boxgreen’s sedap snacks? Our favourite is their “Hari Raya 2022 - A Big Bag of Snacks” that will make your guests go “sedapnyaaaaa”!
