Mei Heong Yuen Dessert 味香園甜品 @Temple Street, Chinatown

After having a sumptuous Bijin Nabe 美人鍋 dinner at Tsukada Nojo, we decided to take a short walk to Temple street to have some Traditional desserts at Mei Heong Yuen Dessert 味香園甜品.

It was already close to 9pm and the shop was still bustling and fully packed with people. We waited for a while to get a table. Once seated we browsed through the menu to pick our choice of sweet treat.

Two major category of traditional desserts vs modern Taiwanese snow ice desserts. We initially only intended to have a small bowl of Tong Shui 糖水 but the Snow ice desserts are just too appealing, so we caved in and ordered one to share.

Watermelon & Lychee Snow Ice 西瓜荔枝雪花冰 $6, portion is big and good for sharing among 2-3pax. The snow ice texture was very smooth and light as air, drenched in fruity watermelon/lychee syrup that wasn't overly sweet, a nice and refreshing treat to the palate. I liked the little balls of lychee pops served on the side that bursts and releases sweet lychee juice into the mouth...yum yum!

For individual dessert, I had the Beancurd sheets w/ Ginko nuts & Barley soup 腐竹白果薏米糖水 $3. The serving portion was quite small, beancurd sheets were very soft and velvety smooth which I enjoyed. The ginko nuts and barley were pretty ordinary though. Soup was not too sweet, overall very nice.

Two of my friends had the Yam Paste w/ Ginko nuts & Pumpkin cubes 潮式芋泥 $3. They feedback that the yam paste was very smooth and creamy but lacks the fragrance of coconut milk which was not served with this dish.

The desserts here was rather good, I would gladly return to try more dishes especially the snow ice ones. This place is a self-service eatery, please check the menu and place order at the cashier and wait for the desserts to be served at the table.
