Mei Heong Yuen Dessert has it roots connected to the iconic FARMER BRAND groundnuts, and is the brainchild of Connie and Clara Lee, daughters of Mei Heong Yuen’s founder. It specializes in different varieties of pastes and steamed egg pudding. Its peanut paste is fragrant and smooth. Sufficiently sweet without being cloying, it offers to be a great dessert for rounding up a satisfying meal. Its walnut paste, another favourite on the menu, is a silky-smooth cream that will wow all.

Good Cantonese Desserts

I had a craving for good Cantonese desserts, specifically Almond Paste and Walnut Paste.   I promptly headed to Temple Street in Chinatown for this shop. It has expanded over the years to occupy three ground floor units of 3 adjoining shop houses, due to good business.   Dining here is good, as its air-conditioned and it’s a good respite from the heat when walking around Chinatown.   They have also diversified in terms of dessert offerings to have cold desserts like ice shavings with mango, black sesame and green tea flavours.   I was heading back for dinner and ordered several packets for my family: - Almond Paste: Smooth and creamy. This is good for ladies’ complexion and the ladies in my family finished this quickly. - Black Sesame Paste: I have ordered this before but this time, I found this a tad sweet for my liking. - Walnut Paste: Its smooth and you can consume this easily.   All are good. Each costs $3. All the desserts are made on-premise and are fresh.   Another dessert you can go for is the Peanut paste.

Visited on 2 May 2015 with my friends. Shop was crowded and we are lucky to find 4 seats. This was my visit to the shop. While ordering at counter there is a staff - auntie was rude in wanting me to stand further in order not to block the way. Front have people and she did not care.
When dessert served my friend asked for another bowl and was rejected by the same rude auntie mentioned many people and short of bowl, can only give additional spoon.
Later after finished the dessert I went to counter to order dumpling to take away. I only tell the counter staff I want cold instead of hot dumpling but was told should have said earlier.
Dessert was nice but service level too lousy. I will not come back specially for the food.

Best friend and I stumbled into this place as we were full from dinner but wanted something sweet that not off a can. We were surprised by the crowd that's inside the shop and honestly from the outside, you can't tell that it's jam packed inside! We peeped at other tables and many ordered their Shaved Ice in the various flavours and we followed. We got an Almond Shaved Ice and we also wanted a traditional hot almond milk cream. We were fascinated with the PILE of Shaved Ice and what I appreciated is that the ice itself had the almond flavour. So it's not a stack of ice with the syrup poured over. The ice was shaved in a wonderful fashion that looked very artistic really. The warm almond milk was tasty and creamy. Not disappointing at all. We left very much fuller but super satisfied! We will definitely return.
