Who doesn’t love desserts and sweets? Dessert is the nicest food to eat at all time as some is interesting, some is healthy and the best is most of them are yummy. Chinese’ dessert is not about cakes and pastry, but more about tang yuan (glutinous rice ball), fruits, paste and soup.
When I was in Hong Kong and Singapore, I always eat desserts at there after and before meal because there’s too many desserts cafe already but then in Penang, there’s not much. Just recently, the number of this desserts cafe and restaurants are increasing.
I went to one dessert house lately on Lorong Susu (near to Macalister Road, behind Town Steamboat House) as they are quite famous for tangyuan. The name is All About Sugar & Gift 团团圆圆团圆汤圆甜品屋. They have a variety of tangyuan with different fillings like sesame, peanuts, lianyong, and some special one like chocolate, cheese, tiramisu and more.
My girlfriend ordered a bowl of tangyuan which called the Quan Jia Fu (Whole Family) RM6.90 which allows you to pick 5 big tang yuan with different filling. She picked Tiramisu, White Coffee, Chocolate and Cheese tangyuan. Well, according to her, she said it’s nice because of the special filling rather than normal filling, but the soup wasn’t good as it’s milk with ginger and it tasted a little bit spicy because of the ginger.
I tried and I like the original one like sesame and nuts filling more though. If were to compare to the one in Hong Kong that I had before, Hong Kong’s better. Haha.
I ordered myself something different, it’s a Mixed Fruit Sago (RM6.90) and it’s one of the chef recommended. It comes with different fruits cutlet, sago and also some colourful little plain tangyuan. I like this as it’s chilling, sweet and nice.
For your little information, they do serve food too like rice and noodle instead just tang yuan and desserts. It may not be the best dessert house in town but it’s still a good place to hang out with your friends and eat some dessert, chill and relax.
