Mei Heong Yuen Dessert 味香园甜品 (Chinatown)

Mei Heong Yuen Dessert 味香园甜品 a well-known traditional dessert stall, also owns the Farmer Brand groundnuts 农夫牌花生. The stall expanded last year and open a branch at ION Orchard.
Although Mei Heong Yuen Dessert occupies three units of the ground-floor shop house in Chinatown, the place was full on a Saturday night. Luckily, the staff were efficient and the turnover was fast. We found a table fairly quickly.
Look at the menu, Mei Heong Yuen Dessert offers a wide variety of desserts.
Peanut Paste $3
I decided to try the Peanut Paste after all they own the Farmer Brand groundnuts. Where else would be a better place to try peanut paste.

The Peanut Paste was amazingly fragrant and smooth. There were no peanut bits present. In terms of thickness it was just nice and not overly diluted. Initially I feared that it would be too thick. The perfection of this peanut paste allowed me to polish off the whole bowl without feeling jelak and had me longing for more. What a satisfying bowl of Peanut Paste.

Walnut Paste $3
Walnut Paste $3
On another occasion, I tried the Walnut Paste. It was priced at $3 too. Mei Heong Yuen's Walnut Paste did not disappoint. It had a smooth consistency and thickness. Full of walnut fragrant and flavour, I have to admit that this is one of the best Walnut Paste I have tried. It would be worthwhile to note that not many dessert stalls sells Walnut Paste.
Sesame Paste $3
On the third occasion, I had the Sesame Paste which was priced at $3. It was a hat trick (3 times) of paste. Similarly, it had the same consistency and smoothness. Quite a decent bowl of sesame paste.

Mei Heong Yuen Dessert is a good bet if you are looking for desserts. They sell a variety of desserts such as paste and shaved ice.

  1. They sure know how to expand in the market, from the brand to an outlet. I adore all those sweet desserts. Whenever I see a similar outlet, its a must try for me. Tried to make the peanut paste, but disaster. Couldn't get the peanuts to be smooth. I am going to try again and see what happens this time.

  2. I'm not a fan of those peanut nor almond pastes. I'm a Teochew, but I don't appreciate Or Nee either. I wouldn't mind a nice plate of ice kachang or a bowl of tasty chendol tho :) I spotted some other lovely desserts in the menu too. Yummy!
