Ye Lai Xiang 夜来香 Chng Tng
Yes, Bedok Corner Food Centre is famous for a certain chng tng (literally "clear soup", a sweet Chinese dessert). Available hot or cold, a S$2 bowl gives you a variety of ingredients, such as dried longan, white fungus, candied melon strips and dried persimmon. A strong pandan flavour dominates but it's rather grassy, so I'm not sure it sits well. My preference is still for the East Coast Lagoon version, which is also a more generous portion.
This is it. Ye Lai Xiang 夜来香. One of the oldest stalls in this food centre. I always thought it was odd that they sold kangkong-cuttlefish as well, just at the neighbouring stall.
