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.
 Recommended!

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.

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.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
