Singapore Find: Mango With Pomelo Sago


Fact: Desserts served in a hot, humid place like Singapore MUST be refreshing as heck to warrant repeat customers.

Mei Heong Yuen Dessert knows this well. Their vast menu of chilled, fruity creations offer ultimate reprieve from the ubiquitous tropical heat. Their most famous dish is the #201: Mango (shaved ice) with pomelo sago seed.

Served with tapioca, the ripe, lusciously soft and rich mango, sago seed and milky ice make me wonder if there is possibly any better way to cool off? Probably not.

There are multiple Mei Heong Yuen Dessert branches throughout Singapore. I got my bowl of paradise in Chinatown (not far from the MRT Chinatown station exit, on Temple St.) Enjoy!
