Mei Heong Yuen Dessert has won various accolades and has been featured by the press numerous times. They were featured as a Singapore Chinatown Heritage Brand, recommended as a choice in Singapore “Ice Kachang” category as part of CCGo’s Best Eats 2010 Awards, won “Best Foods Awards 2009/2010” by The Green Book and were featured on Lian He Wan Bao, Sin Ming Ri Bao, Weekend Today, Guang Ming Ri Bao and Japanese newspaper, Shin Nichi Ho.
At Mei Heong Yuen, there’s no canned ingredients used; they use only the freshest ingredients with no added essence or flavourings. Its signature desserts include Snow Ice Chendol (S$6.50), Almond Paste (S$3.50), and Mango with Pomelo and Sago (S$5.50).
If you only have room for one dessert, I highly recommend the Snow Ice Chendol. This delicious dessert consists of a mountain of finely shaved ice, pandan jelly noodles, grass jelly, red beans, and atap seeds drenched in mouth-watering coconut milk. The best part is that you get to decide how much gula melaka (palm sugar syrup) you’d like to add as it’s presented in a separate squeezy bottle. Overall, the chendol tastes light, refreshing and not cloyingly sweet. It does melt very fast though so get your camera ready!
The Almond Paste offers a good blend of sweetness and bitterness, with its almonds specially sourced from China. Opt for Almond & Sesame Paste combo for a slightly nuttier flavour.
Although not the main attractions, they serve some dim sum items such as locals’ favourite Chee Cheong Fun (S$2.50), Chicken Glutinous Rice (S$3.00) and Yam/Carrot/Pumpkin Cake (S$3.00).
Look out for the up and coming new outlet located at 16 LIANG SEAH STREET SINGAPORE (189037) opening this 30 June 2019!
