I have been taking lots of soupy food ever since I caught a nasty flu bug that had me sniffling throughout last week. Once I got better, I started hankering for tong sui (sweet soups in Chinese) for dessert. To satisfy my crazy craving for tong sui, I have been hanging out at this corner coffee shop that has a pretty good dessert and snacks stall. It's advisable to go early to this place which opens from 4.30 pm. Everytime I am at this place it's a hive of activity and popular items get snapped up really quickly by 7 pm. They serve all kinds of snacks here: Yam Cake you see above (Wu Tau Ko in Chinese) which is steamed and sprinkled with fried shallots, fried popiah, glutinous rice, fried mee hoon and etc.
Unlike the other tong sui stall I had earlier blogged last year in Section 17, this stall only sells the classic tong sui items such as red bean, wheat, green bean, bubur cha cha, barley beancurd gingko. Each bowl costs about RM1.30 and you can get it piping hot as they rotate the big pots on a fire. My favourite is the barley beancurd gingko - not much in terms of ingredients inside the tong sui but it's smooth and sweet.
They also serve two kinds of chee cheong fun (rice sheets); the plain ones to be eaten with the brown sauce and the stuffed ones known as Teluk Anson Chee Cheong Fun as it originates from the Teluk Intan(Anson) in Perak. This version has no meat inside it and is stuffed with mushroom slices, fried shallots and preserved turnip. I really like it as it gives a kick to the plain ones with it's crunchy filling.
