Tong Sui can potentially make or break my day, just like coffee. I rarely go for this sweet treat, because more often than not, it is laden with sugar but short on ingredients. A friend of rif’s told us about this good tong sui place he frequents in Taman Muda, and coming from a Cheras boy, that’s a good sign.
Getting there was tough for us but we eventually found the stall, located next to the BH petrol station. We got there slightly after the uncle set up stall at about 10.30am. We were told to try the back sesame tong sui, bubur gandum and this fuchuk with beans tong sui. Please bear with me as I have no idea how to pronounce these treats in Chinese. *note to self: Send my kids to Chinese school!
I love bubur gandum just as much as bubur cha cha and this uncle’s bubur gandum was pretty wicked. Smooth with a good bite from the gandum bits, it was moderately sweet and very aromatic.
I used to like the black sesame tong sui at KTZ in Kepong, but after trying this one, I’ll no longer order the one at KTZ. This black sesame tong sui was thick and soothing to the throat. Only after letting it cool for a while. Don’t be a hero and swallow this when it’s piping hot.
The fuchuk with beans tong sui was foreign to me but I’m glad I tried it. I liked the texture as the bits of fuchuk (beancurd sheets) and beans complemented each other well. Like the other two tong sui, this one was of just the right sweetness. The price range between RM1.50 to RM3, depending on what you order.
