Worth the Price
With only $2 for 4 glutinous ball of any flavours we can choose from, this is an ideal snack or dessert that I usually go for, especially if I am hungry. My personal favourites are the sesame and the peanut glutinous balls, but the rest are really nice as well. They even offer the soup in 2 different flavours - the ginger soup and the peanut soup. They really know how to spoil their customers, don't they?
The filling in each glutinous ball will ooze out once the balls are broken, and the skin of the glutinous balls are rather chewy, just the way I like it. The stall owners are definitely not stingy with their ingredients as even there are uncountable number peanuts in just the peanut soup itself.
This is one of my favorite desert places to visit. At the golden Mile Food Centre which I often patronize, I would usually order this to complete my meal. My personal favorite is the ah balling with peanut soup. The peanut soup is quite sweet and tasty, and I could finish the entire thing in a few minutes. There are many different flavours of Ah Balling, including sesame and peanut flavored ones.
Price-wise, three Ah Ballings with soup costs an average of $2.50. Some may consider the prices here rather steep, but I can assure you that the desert here is good enough and justifies the price!
Nothing Not to Love
I absolutely love ah balling desserts! Previously not a fan of starchy desserts, my taste buds were totally changed after I tried these. Ah Balling provides a small range of different flavours of glutinous rice ball dessert which include peanut, black sesame among others. They may look pure and simple, but the taste exceeds many more elaborate looking desserts out there that go for much higher prices.
My personal favourite of all time is the peanut filled ones in peanut soup. The taste is milky and creamy, and the bits of peanut although may look crunchy, but are boiled to super soft-ness and can simply melt in your mouth. It is a pity that the Blk 85 food centre at Bedok no longer has this stall!
The price is also reasonable, for only $2 a bowl you can get your hands on a satisfying warm dessert. The dessert can be quite filling so it would be good to share if taken after a meal. Otherwise, for tea break, this dessert would be perfect.
I would definitely recommend this dessert to anyone looking to try an authentic local delight as it makes the mark in terms of taste as well as price.
Big Balls Of....
The original Ah Balling tang yuan still beats the competition hands down. The tang yuan at this famous stall tastes leaps and bounds superior to other food court stalls and upmarket versions by the likes of Honeymoon Dessert.
My mum loves the peanut soup best. She actually ta pows the peanut soup only, without the tang yuan. I favour the ginger soup. I like best the peanut filling for the tang yuan, it is fragrant and has just the right amount of sweetness. I don’t quite like yam in any form, so I give the yam tang yuan a miss altogether.
Delicious peanut soup with soft glutinous rice balls
The perfect desert to round off a good meal at golden mile food centre? Don’t miss 75 Ah Balling Peanut Soup! For an extremely affordable price of 2 dollars you get bowl of hot steaming peanut soup with soft, well-cooked glutinous rice balls. The glutinous rice balls come in five flavors, Black Sesame, Peanut, Red Bean, Yam Paste and Green Tea. I personally like Black sesame and peanut best because of the fragrance of the both fillings. However what I think is really worth raving about is the chunky peanut soup itself. There are three choices for soup, chunky peanut, clear sugar and ginger. Get the chunky peanut soup period. They taste amazing even without the rice balls. The peanuts were really soft and yielded easily when you bite down on them, a testament to the hours put into boiling the soup. The soup itself was thick and sweet and words will not do it justice so you just have to try it out for yourself. The best part about the place is that there is hardly ever a queue despite its popularity because the aunty serving is really quite efficient, so you don’t have to wait very long for it.
