We are now in the middle of the year where on top of the normally soaring temperature, it gets really really humid and hot in Singapore. I met this guy from overseas yesterday who complained incessantly about it. Today, while on my way home from church, I was filling rather thirsty and in the need for something cooling. Hence, decided to get some grass jelly dessert as a treat. Nine Fresh Desserts is located en-route to the train station, which is a great spot for getting desserts to go. The main ingredient is the grass jelly and/or beancurd, but you can pick from 6 different variations of toppings. From time to time, they may also have a seasonal topping (eg. mango) Grass Jelly is like a childhood dessert for most Singaporeans. It’s usually sold as a plain tasteless jelly, but it’s very refreshing. So on a hot day, you chop the jelly up into tiny pieces, mix it together with sugar syrup and water and voila, you have a easy dessert/drink on your hands. At Nine Fresh Desserts, my favourite choice to get the Grass Jelly Special where for $2, you get a generous serving of grass jelly with taro balls, aloe vera pearl jelly, black sugar jelly and a milk ball. I also like how it’s not an overly sweet dessert and something which is easy to eat, even when you’re feeling under the weather.
From time to time, Nine Fresh Desserts also has some seasonal offers. For example, mango with black sugar grass jelly ($3). It’s nice if you love mango, but the focus is still on the grass jelly and you can easily get your fix at any time of the year 🙂
