With the city’s hot and humid weather, Singaporeans are always looking out for cool and refreshing desserts to beat the heat. As a fan of Taiwanese desserts, I was extremely delighted to have chanced upon this gem at Toa Payoh and was instantly hooked!
For a price of $2.50, one can get the Nine Fresh Signature that includes both grass jelly and beancurd, with multiple toppings such as taro balls and red bean. Their grass jelly was fresh and cooling, while the beancurd was smooth. Although their taro balls were slightly hard, it added more chewability to the dessert. At the end of it, I was honestly surprised by how filled up I was.
While most people recall Blackball when they want Taiwanese grass jelly desserts, Nine Fresh offers almost the same things at a fraction of the price. Sign me up as a convert!
I went to taiwan and fell in love with the chewy balls in daohuay served with beans. When I passed by toa payoh and saw this shop, I knew I had to try it!
The beancurd was silky and it complemented the grass jelly well. The whole bowl of daohuay wasn't too sweet- infact just nice for my liking. They also took care to ask each customer if they wanted nuts (since some people are allergic to nuts). There'd always be a long queue during lunch hours so you may want to avoid it. Their beancurd is silky and could literally slide into your throat!
The only thing is that they used to scoop the beancurd and put it into the bowl nicely but recently the beancurd just looks slightly chopped up. :(
It's really cheap and filling though!
Today I was walking around Toa Payoh and this stall caught my eye. It was having a promotion, and there was quite a crowd in front of it. My mum and me decided to buy a bowl for ourselves, and we brought it back home.
For just $2, we got ourselves six different toppings with the beancurd, which included grass jelly, peanuts, red beans and greens beans. The beancurd itself could actually be compared to the famous LaoBan 'tao huay'. It was silky and fragrant, but the most important factor of the beancurd's tastiness was its sweetness. It was moderately sweet, so I would say that it is pretty healthy for the whole family to enjoy.
Blame me for being too lenient, but I have to give this stall 5 stars in terms of service, value and the food they serve!
