I have shared before my love for traditional Cantonese desserts and I worry that nobody carry on making these traditional desserts. Luckily there is a couple of brands who has taken the traditional desserts out of the hawker centers and into new shopping malls to influence young customers into embracing these traditional desserts.
The Chinatown point outlet is located at the basement is a mid sized shop that offers basic marble table seating for customers to enjoy their desserts. The setting might not be the most comfortable for customers to sit and relax and chill the afternoon away. In fact it is more functional as a space for customers to have their dessert and leave for their next stop.
The order counter is right at the entrance and you can make your orders and payment before getting a seat. The service staff will hand you a buzzer to pick up your items from the self service counter.
The small slot window is where you can pick up your orders when your buzzer rings.
They are famous for this extremely fine shaved ice which comes in different flavours. This item originated from Taiwan where this fine shaved ice was very popular as the ice melts the moment you put it in your mouth. Instead of our ice kachang where plain ice is shaved and sweet syrup is drizzled on top of it, this dish is made by shaving ice which is made of mango milk and fruit puree. Therefore, you are having finely shaved mango flavoured ice with toppings of mango cubes. This is so good as it is almost like having mango ice cream minus the milkiness. This has peanut, black sesame, almond as well chocolate flavours as well and is a hot favourite.
For those who prefer hot desserts, they still have the traditional Chinese desserts like the black sesame paste, peanut paste, almond paste and this yam paste. Although the taste is not as good as the traditional Teochew restaurant one, ( you can read about it Mu Liang Zai Liang Kee Restaurant) this can satisfy my craving when I crave for yam paste.
Overall, Mei Heong Yuen has nice desserts; hot or cold to satisfy that sugar crave and the best part is you can enjoy them in the air conditioned environment.
