It’s only April and the weather is unforgivingly hot. I totally can’t imagine the heat during June. A mere 5 minutes walk under the sun can get me sweating like cats and dogs. Don’t you agree? We all need an iced cold dessert to quench our thirst as well as to save us from getting a ‘heat stroke’. But where? Where can we find good and affordable dessert in Singapore?
I think most of us are very familiar with Nine Fresh (they have a few outlets all around Singapore) and it happens to be one of my favourite Chinese dessert brand in Singapore. When my office was still in Clarke Quay, I’ll always da-pao their Signature Nine Fresh back to the office (keep it in the freezer so that it turns icy cold) which is super value-for-money by the way. Recently, they introduced two new local flavours – 1) The BuBur Cha Cha Cup & 2) Honeydew Sago Ai-Yu Jelly as well as made an improvement to the existing ones – 1) The Chendol Cup & 2) The Cheng Teng Cup. So, the next time you’re looking for cheap thrills to combat the blazing sun, Nine Fresh is the perfect place to prevent you from getting a heat stroke! Not kidding!
P/s: If you’re a hardcore durian-lover, they also have the Durian Yin Yang!
What I liked about Nine Fresh: Super affordable, generous portion and not too sweet
Here’s two of their newest local flavours – BuBur Cha Cha & Honeydew Sago Ai Yu. As you can see from the pictures, they are really very generous with the ingredients. BuBur Cha Cha was not too sweet and Honeydew Sago didn’t taste artificial. Both were super refreshing. Definitely a life-saver during the hot sunny afternoon!
I was sold, especially by the Honeydew Sago Ai Yu Jelly. So soothing to the throat!
Other existing local flavours but improved:
These existing flavours are better than before!
Durian Yin Yang
Okay, if you’re a hardcore durian-lover, I bet you’ll fall in love with this. Haha, but durian is so not my thang!
Cheng Teng Cup
Cheng Teng was flavourful and not too sweet. I think my mum will love this! Comforting and best when it’s icy cold!
Loving the aroma of the gula melaka which was not too overpowering.
