I was never really a fan of shaved ice because I was more used to traditional desserts like ice kachang, ice jelly and bubur hitam. Before entering this stall with my friend, we almost did not want to try it due to the crowd but I am glad we tried it.
Almost all the service staff here are local aunties who look and talk just like the mothers of my friends. They are super fast in service and always serve with a smile as well. When we entered, one of the aunties immediately dashed around the stall to look for a suitable seat for us, passed us a menu and told us to make the order at the counter and inform the lady our table number. We chose a few desserts, paid and sat down for a chat. Literally within the first minute, our first dessert was served and by the next minute, the next dessert was served as well. I was tremendously impressed with the speed of service.
I have tried about 5 of the flavours of shaved ice here and all of them were perfect in their own way. I really like the presentation of the dish and the taste was definitely pleasing. Even the hot desserts and some dim sum dishes were great. If you are looking for a place to chill and satisfy that sweet tooth after your meal, Mei Heong Yuen Dessert is the place to go to. Very affordable, and they have various outlets dotted around Singapore too.
