One of the things I miss about Hong Kong is their tong sui. It’s not that we don’t have it here in Malaysia. There’s one delicious tong sui stall in my town. It’s just that there are more variety and more tong sui shops in Hong Kong, plus their opening hours are longer. I have my eyes on a tong sui shop in Jordan, but because we were pressed for time, we decided to simply find one near our Airbnb on day 2.
The shop we visited is called Mum’ Dessert Shop 小妹甜品 (The Chinese and English names didn’t match!). Besides desserts, they also offer lunch and dinner menu such as noodles and rice. We were there early (dinner time), so most customers were having dinner except us. Hehe We didn’t eat dinner because we were still full from our lunch at a 1 Michelin star restaurant earlier today.
Black sesame soup and walnut cream @ HK$24.
Thick soup and delish! There were too little walnut cream though.
Black sesame glutinous rice balls in ginger soup @ HK$20.
5 large glutinous rice balls with black sesame paste fillings. Together with the ginger soup there was a good balance of sweet and spicy.
All in all, very happy that I got a good fill of tong sui here.
