Ah Chew Desserts 阿秋甜品

Apparently still in the mood for desserts, so we headed to the Ah Chew Dessert Store for some traditional hot and cold desserts.

We are quite sure this place has been visited by many before. Personally we have also been there a few times way before this blog was set up!

As usual queue is long!

Like in many of our posts, Picky girlfriend and Fussy Boyfriend's preference are quite different! The former will prefer cold desserts while the latter prefers hot desserts.

Craving for something like milky yet light?

Try the grass jelly with carnation milk! :)

This is surprisingly a good and refreshing combination. The carnation milk makes the dessert very fragrant and definitely not the kind that will make you feel sick of the dessert after a while.

And what we really love about this is, the grass jelly are in really big chunky cubes that are super crunchy and tasty!

And this is what Fussy Boyfriend tried - Peanut Paste

First take - looks very normal!

And the moment we stirred it, we knew this is great stuff! the texture is very thick but when eaten, is really very smooth that it glides down your throat easily. Unlike some other paste we have tried that gave you a very bad aftertaste (that leaving some residue kind), this do not have that problem!

And since we were seated inside, we watched how the counter staff prepared the paste and we know the trick behind this. For every bowl that served, the paste is being "sieved" first. Yes sieved, like how you sieve the flour when you bake a cake! guess that reduced the unwanted residue which made it smooth and silky!

  • The place is quite small so there were limited seats (both inside and outside) so may not be a good place for large group gatherings
Picky Girlfriend's rating for Grass Jelly with Carnation Milk: 3.5/5
Fussy Boyfriend's rating for Peanut Paste : 3.75/5
