Looking for some cheap traditional desserts? I came across Rong Fa Cheng Tng at Havelock Road Food Centre the other day and noticed the stall steals dessert as cheap as $1. This is a price point that you hardly can find it at food centre anymore.
Pulut Hitam 3/5
The Pulut Hitam ($1) comes with a spoon of coconut milk which allows customer to add into the black glutinous rice dessert to their preference. The sweetness of the dessert was rather balanced with the bonus of dried longan. However I thought it was a bit on the watery side.
Cold Cheng Tng 2.8/5
The Cold Cheng Tng ($1) is quite disappointing with the substitution of the traditional ingredients used in the traditional dessert with canned peach and jelly. The longan soup was rather bland too. It tasted more like syrup water. For an additional $2, you get to have gingko nuts.
Besides the pulut hitam and cheng tng which I tried, the stall sells a variety of desserts too. Most of the them are around $1,50 with the most expensive item at $2. While the dessert is not the best I have tried, it is definitely one of the cheapest I have found.
