There are a number of dessert stalls in the area just behind Bugis Junction, where the eateries and steamboat restaurants are. So one evening, after pigging out at a yummy and rare porridge steamboat place (which didn't allow me to take any photographs and which has closed down anyway), we popped over next door to complete our meal with dessert.
The boy almost always orders something with mango in it for dessert, and this time it is the Mango Snow Ice, which is basically shaved mango ice cream with mango pieces, topped with mango syrup and nata de coco. I stole a mouthful or two and it was delicious.
As usual, I had a Bobo Chacha, partly for the huge colorful sago chunks which are so difficult to find hese days. The quality of the desserts here is pretty good and this was no exception. It is a pity they have stopped serving it hot, which I much prefer over the usually diltued cold version.
Another of the boy's favourites is the cold mango sago with pomelo. The sweetness of the mango balances the bitterness of the pomelo, and there's a mountain of sago in there.
If you like glutinous rice balls but not the spicy ginger or sweet peanut soup they usually come in, you might want to try the Homemade Taro Skin Tang Yuan (Red Bean/Chocolate). Four balls in a sweet soup, two filled with chocolate sauce and two with the more common red bean paste. We both found the chocolate tang yuan rather weird, but the red bean paste was thick and pretty good.
As for the yam cake (they have pumpkin too), it wasn't bad. We still prefer the one from Dessert Story though.
