Nice Desserts

Remembering my mum was craving for black sesame dessert for the past 2 weeks but I was busy preparing for my exam so I didn't buy for her then.

A little headache where to get nice desserts as I'm not really a dessert lover but I remembered a recommendation from my good friend and as I was free yesterday afternoon, I decided to make a trip down to Chinatown to stop her craving. Haha... hope it doesn't sounds like addiction. A search at the online food website and streetdirectory and I have located this shop which is located in Temple Street. Anxious to know the name? It's Mei Heong Yuen.

Got a direct bus around my workplace to Chinatown but the trip still took an hour. When I reached there, I was startled. It was crowded and I knew my good friend made a fantastic recommendation. I stood near the counter and checked the menu. After awhile, a waitress asked me in cantonese to take my order. I was a little startled. Hmm... why would she think I'm able to speak cantonese? Maybe I got a "cantonese" look. Haha... Lucky I could speak cantonese otherwise I'll have to tell her in mandarin what my order is.

Black Sesame - my mum's favourite dessert

We like to share and I tried all of them. The walnut, black sesame and almond pastes are all very smooth, taste very good and one of the best dessert I've had. My favourite is almond as I like its taste better. Its worth the money and the time to get the dessert. Of course, not forgetting to thank my good friend for the recommendation.
