Nine Fresh Desserts

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. IMG_4416 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. IMG_4483

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 🙂
