White Fungus with Red Dates
White Fungus with Red Dates

SH and I first visited this dessert shop a few weeks back. Even though it's located close to our homes and has been open for quite a number of months, we never got to try it as the parking situation was very challenging (read: not enough parking spaces to support the number of food outlets in the area).

SH had the White Fungus with Red Dates dessert and offered me some to try. I like White Fungus with Red Dates but I generally tend to shy away from ordering this dessert as its cloyingly sweet in most dessert places. I was pleased to discover that the version here was not excessively sweet and was delicious.

Steamed Milk Custard with Ginger

(requires 20 minutes prep time)

I ordered the Steamed Milk Custard with Ginger dessert as it is one of my favourite desserts. The guy at the cashier forewarned us that we would have to wait for 20 minutes as the dessert is steamed to order. I didn't mind the wait. When the dessert arrived, a very faint aroma of fresh young ginger juice wafted to my nostrils. Unlike the version served at Ah Chew Desserts, there wasn't a ladleful of ginger juice poured on top. The ginger juice had already been incorporated into the custard mix before steaming. The version here was slightly sweeter than the one served at Ah Chew but it could also be attributed to a less robust flavour of ginger. I prefer a stronger flavour of ginger as it is a great tummy warmer with palliative properties. Mental note to self: Try to ask for more ginger juice the next time I order this dessert.

Chicken Porridge

SH likes the Chicken Porridge here. I was sceptical at first but when I tried some of the porridge, I was pleased to note that it had a nice and smooth texture like how most good Cantonese Congees should be. The chicken porridge was slightly less fragrant than the ones served at Crystal Jade but was nonetheless pretty good.

Tian Mi Mi Desserts Operating Hours

During a recent visit, SH and I had a bowl each of Black Sesame Paste and Almond Cream. Both were smooth and not excessively sweet. We were glad that they weren't lumpy unlike the versions sold in most food courts or hawker stalls these days.

Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures to show as my camera was on the blink that day. The desserts here are worth a try if you're in the vicinity.
