Ye Lai Xiang's Special Cheng Tng
I've blogged Ye Lai Xiang before, but didn't find it that impressive back then. But recently, I was back at Bedok Food Centre and I could not resist a cold dessert because the hot weather seems to have come back after that ominous flash flood in Orchard. I decided to try the S$3 cheng tng (cold) which has the works, and I was blown away. Wow!
I counted at least 12 different ingredients. Dried persimmon, dried longan, barley, salty boiled tapioca and sweet potato, snow fungus, ginkgo, lotus seed, candied melon strips, sago pearls, split mung beans, and that fuzzy brown stuff floating in the sweet cold pandan-infused water. Does anyone know the name of that fuzzy brown stuff?
I know, S$3 seems pricey for a hawker dessert, but I thought it was worth it. I am never going back to the S$2 version again.
