I absolutely love classic Hong Kong styled desserts. Ji De Chi is one of the many franchise chains that offers the usual shaved ice, puddings, mango-fruity desserts, sesame paste and so on - there's also Mei Heong Yuen and Honeymoon Desserts. I like how Ji De Chi is less fuss-free and straight-forward in their menu selection and has all the simplest desserts which looks unassumingly boring... but lovely to sweeten my palate after a dinner.Almond Paste - $3My disclaimer above is to defend for the
My disclaimer above is to defend for the interests of my official new favourite dessert at Hong Kong dessert places - the almond paste. It is subtly sweet and has a super almond fragrance. Some people find that almond paste tastes like medicine; I used to think the same too. There's really a psychological barrier you have to get past but once you learn to appreciate it... it's really godly. Definitely recommended for almond lovers. The fact that it's a hot dessert also makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Perfect to counter Singapore's chilly weathers. Blueberry Snowflake Ice - $5.50
The blueberry flavour in this lavender-hued icy dessert tastes rather artificial, not for the health-conscious. Snowflake ice desserts are naturally refreshing and there was another dimension to the dessert with the burst of the lychee and also chewy glutinous balls. I wish there were more glutinous balls though. I would recommend the other flavoured shaved ice though.
