Recently featured on the @wheretodapao Instagram page, residents within the vicinity are encouraged to support the small shop during these trying times.

Ang Mo Kio dessert shop specializes in traditional treats

As its name suggests, Traditional Desserts (传统甜品) specialises in classic treats like chendol and longan with almond jelly.

Passing by the shop on a sweltering day, a customer named Rhyn decided to have a look at the menu of cooling desserts.

To quell the heat, he asked the uncle for a cold dish and was recommended their longan with almond jelly.

As the uncle prepared the dish, he asked if the customer wanted to get something for his family too.

Rhyn believes purchasing more for the fam was a nice gesture and will also help the hawker during these uncertain times.

Later, he asked the uncle manning the stall how the business was doing.

The uncle apparently stopped, looked him in the eye, and smiled with a sad expression before replying,

We thinking of closing down.

The uncle shared that he runs the business with his wife and are unsure about what they’d do if forced to close.

Residents urged to support hawker

Rhyn shared that the dishes served are of good quality and are also “value for money” — desserts are priced at about $2.

Their chendol seems to be particularly popular, topped with ample amounts of pandan-flavoured palm flour noodles and red beans.

They also offer ice kachang, cheng tng, red bean soup, and pulut hitam that will satisfy anyone’s craving on a hot day.
