Hong Kong-Style Steamed Egg Custard @ Ah Chew Desserts
My mum's favourite dessert stall in Singapore is Ah Chew Desserts at Liang Seah Street. The reason why she likes this place is because of the hot Steamed Egg Custard (燉蛋) with Ginger Juice.
Hot Steamed Egg Custard with Ginger Juice
I like to eat my soya bean curd without breaking the curd up too much. This is partly because I prefer to eat it with as little sugar syrup as possible, thus the larger pieces makes it easier for me to drain the syrup away.
On the other hand, I found that breaking the egg custard into smaller bits helps to spread the flavour of the ginger juice more evenly. That said, how one chooses to eat this dessert is entirely up to your preference.
If you're a person who needs alot of space when you're eating, please be forewarned that the tables and seats are set so close to each other that a claustrophobe would feel terribly caged in. Do also be prepared to share your table and a leisurely savouring of your dessert is not encouraged here as there is almost always a long line of people waiting.
In short, I found that the dining experience here is similar to that of a popular dessert shop or "cha chan teng" (cafe) in Hong Kong.
