Fortune Food Homemade Popiah (Halal) @ Albert Center Market

Homemade popiah skin is very rare these days so I was surprised to discover this stall recently. It was only after the visit did I learn that Fu Cheng is managed by a family of four who started their first stall in Blk 69, Geylang Bahru Hawker Center. 

Thanks to the engineer-trained father who developed his Popiah machine to expand the production, they are now supplying to not only their 10 island wide outlets but also catering to many hotels and restaurants. 

You might know them better as Fortune Food, a fully-established company which produces freshly-made halal popiah 365 days a year. They even have DIY popiah sets, kueh pie tee or even laksa party sets available for order online or via phone. Never knew popiah business can be managed at such a grand scale!

The Popiah skin reminded me of Kway Guan Huat Joo Chiat Popiah, which is thin, crisp yet resilient to moisture. However, the turnips could perhaps be cooked as the fillings were not flavorful and juicy, with an underlying peppery taste. 

The same problem goes for the Kueh Pie Tee (5 for $3.50), which has a really crunchy shell with lackluster filling that could not deliver that punchy kick. 
Surprisingly, the Muah Chee ($2.50) turned out pleasantly chewy and aromatic. My family and I enjoyed this so much that we thought it was one of the best hidden find from this old hawker center
