Dessert is my love. I will try any shop I chanced upon. Wudai Tongtang Homemade Dessert (五代同糖) is around the corner of the hotel I was staying. There isn’t a English name so I have the English name from the pronunciation of the Chinese words.
This dessert shop is always crowded. I thought to myself, it must be good. I went with a friend and her daughter.
I decided to try something different so after browsing the menu and I chose the Beancurd and Grass Jelly with Mango.
The grass jelly when eaten alone was slightly bitter in taste but when I ate it together with syrup, the bitterness was masked. The syrup seems to have some evaporated and/or condensed milk added. With mango added, the dessert was refreshing and added a dash of fruitiness.
My colleague’s daughter tried the Mango Pomelo Dessert while she didn’t try any as she doesn’t quite fancy dessert.
The Mango Pomelo Dessert was presented in as shaven ice, something different from the classic presentation. I tried a spoonful. It has a rich mango flavour in the shaven ice and the sweetness level was perfect for me. There were some mango cubes and pomelo by the side.
Overall, the dessert is pretty decent with excellent Mango Pomelo Dessert.
