Flavoured Ice

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.

Poor Service

Went there for dessert tonight. Initially ordered 2 bowls of dessert but immediately wanted to cancel 1 bowl as I was feeling full from my dinner. To my surprise, the boss/cashier refused to cancel my order citing a lame reason that she has already keyed into the cash register. We are all well aware that there is such a thing called 'Void', 'Refund' or 'Cancel' key in any cash registers, depending on the models used. To blatantly claim that it's not possible to cancel my order is clearly a case of wanting to earn that extra dollar and disregarding giving the customer any service level. I do understand that now is CNY period and perhaps it's the peak period to profit from the business. But surely there is no need for the boss/staff to be so hard up to want to earn the money so badly. I am only cancelling one bowl out of two and I was denied the right to do so. Such  behaviour totally disgusts me. Learn to listen to your customer needs. Will I go back again? No way! Would like to hear a response from the Establishment.
Best Peanut Paste in Singapore

Best Peanut Paste in Singapore

The almond paste was a tad watered down, and the almond taste was rather thin. The paste was just generally sweet without much almond flavour.

The black sesame paste at Mei Heong Yuen is very fragrant, and I liked that the paste came with a little bitter aftertaste.

Mei Heong Yuen's peanut paste is undeniably the best paste here, and the best peanut paste in Singapore. The peanut taste is rich; the texture consistent- the paste literally went from my mouth straight to my heart.

Fantastic Dessert

This place is famous for its desserts especially snow ice and other traditional Chinese desserts.

Due to the hot weather, we ordered Cendol Ice ($6) which can be shared by two person. It comes with fresh cendols, red beans, grass jelly and free pour of brown sugar syrup. Really enjoyed the moment when the shaved ice melted in the mouth together with the toppings.

I think i will go back again to try their other hot or cold desserts.
