A friend of mine had taken me to this dessert wonderland. For 3$ you can order from snowden (shaved icecreams) to walnut/almond/peanut paste which I did not try. There is a great mango option that comes with sago and mango cubes. My friend loved it. Its a lovely place with character and great service.

Price for a bowl of dessert starts from $3. Place is really crowded but there are plenty of seats as the outlet is big. Ordered walnut and sesame hot dessert and both are good. Service is fast as there are plenty of staff here. Worth a try if you are in china town.

I first went to this place about 16 years ago and it's always a treat. Not much has changed over the years - the desserts are still terrific, they still sell peanuts from Taiwan, the prices don't seemed to have gone up much and the plastic chairs remain. But the headlines "acts" are the desserts. Today it was Mango with... More

Had afternoon snack there. Ordered the rice dumpling and steamed milk. The dumpling was huge and delicious with the Chili sauce. The steamed milk was just like those yummy ones in Hong Kong. Too full to have the shaved ice dessert. But will definitely go back for the shaved ice dessert.

Simple variety and they carry their farmers' brand peanuts that they sell in packets or in pastries. Another branch in Ion Orchard

I always visit the outlet when i pop by chinatown.the glutinous rice ball are soft and chewy...ginger soup not too strong..but my facourite is the peanut paste...taste not too sweet suitable for everyone.especially in such cooling place it is a good time to try the hot desserts

If you have kids definitely come here, if you don't still give it a try. The snow ice is delicious and it has the basic flavours such as chocolate and strawberry as well as some Asian flavours for the adventurous. At $5 a dish it easily serves two people, on our first visit we shared between 2 adults and 2... More

Eating here is a must and it's worth coming to China town especially. It's only a short walk from the MRT. The food is wonderful, the staff are friendly and its well air conditioned. Their shave ice is very different from the common ais kacang. It's also very cheap!

I was in the mood for something local. The place packed with mainly locals so I wanted to try it. I have had shaved ice before but until now I never understood how anyone considered it yummy. Now I know! Loved it. Will come back every time I am in Singapore.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
