Ji De Chi Dessert Liang Seah Street Bugis

After our Korean Dinner at Wang Dae Bak Restaurant, we headed to Chinatown looking for desserts but Mei Heong Yuen Dessert store was closed at 10pm!? Upset that our desserts plans were foiled, the girls swiftly decided on satisfying their desserts cravings at Bugis Liang Seah Street. Usually we would have headed for Ah Chew Desserts but the queue for seats was way too long!  Jer then recommended that we try Ji De Chi  but it was equally packed on a weekend. Thank goodness for her contact, otherwise we would have to wait even longer!  Anyways, a form was given to us readily to fill up our orders. We had to pass it to the staff once we were done and make payment at the cashier before the food was served.  My All-time favourite – Mango with Pomelo Sago tasted very good.   Jer tried the Durian Shaved Ice SGD$6.00 and the taste of the durian is creamy and sweet! Love it! The shaved ice is thinly shaved and is so soft and smooth that I took quite a few mouthfuls of her dessert.    Shengfang’s Mango Ice with Mango Icecream. (Do note that this is not a shaved ice dessert. Look carefully before ordering as there are quite a number of mango desserts in the menu.) It’s still a good choice but shaved ice would have been nicer.  Other great tasting dishes are the Green Tea Snow Ice with the yummy red beans and nata de coco and Black and White Sesame Paste which has a Rich, Mellow Taste.  Another flavourful Hot Dessert is the Double Boiled Snow Pear with Chuan Bei & Red Dates. We also won a Herbal Jelly (SGD$2.30) from a Scratch to Win card!  It has a natural bitter taste and tastes great with honey poured over it. Wish us luck in this lucky draw!

Thailand Travel Blog – Bangkok #2 – Bloody Delicious Pig Blood Soup

Chinese have the reputation for eating almost every living thing. So, as a Chinese, how could I possibly resist this delicacy?    I grew up enjoying the unique taste of pig’s organ soup that was served with pig’s blood, but it was not before long that this dish was banned due to hygiene reasons. I had cravings for it and recalled asking my mum whether she could buy them for me to satisfy my cravings. Those of you who have such cravings will probably love the soft texture and bloody taste of this maroon coloured cube. Well, it was only after travelling in Thailand Bangkok did I then realised that the congealed pig’s blood can be found almost everywhere! *OMG*  In my previous post, I mentioned that Ros & I ordered 3 bags of congealed Pig Blood from the street hawkers for supper. The auntie probably thought we were mad. If I didn’t recall wrongly we probably paid somewhere between 100  to 150 baht (SGD$4 – $6) and didn’t expect to get 3 bags of the Pigs’ blood in return (we thought it was just for 1 bag!). Thus, with the huge volume of blood tofu bought, we turned from blood thirsty vampires to werewolves who were turned off by any bloody scent after the feast for that night.    Some of the sides that came with the soup.   Just for info: Reasons why the Pigs’ Blood is banned: Blood has high moisture and protein content and can easily support the growth of bacteria. Unhygienic harvesting of blood can result in the introduction of food borne pathogens into blood food products. Specialised equipment and additional sanitary controls are required to harvest blood safely during slaughter.   More Bangkok Updates here: 1. Mr. Jones’ Orphanage at Siam Centre2.
