This was a random pit stop in the midst of aimless wandering at AMK Hub. I wasn’t hungry, and planned only to have mango sago pomelo, but the cute waiter convinced me to order a dimsum item to go with it. 😀
The fried durian puffs turned out to be surprisingly good. Although the filling wasn’t pure durian pulp—it’s probably a mixture of durian and custard—it had sufficient durian flavor and scent. Served piping hot, the molten filling was lusciously smooth.
Thin, light, and very crisp, the grease-free pastry shell was impressive too. I ended up enjoying this more than my original order of mango sago pomelo.
It’s not the best mango sago pomelo I’ve had, but neither was it the worst. The mango wasn’t sweet enough, but to be fair, mangoes aren’t at their best now because they’re not in season. Also, I was expecting to see more mango, and cut in chunkier cubes.
My gold standard for mango sago pomelo is still Mei Heong Yuen. So far, none I’ve tried has surpassed their version.
Surprisingly, Sweet Spring is opened by the management of Fish & Co. Hmm, Chinese sweet soups 糖水 is quite a departure from fish and chips, yeah?
I couldn’t linger for long, but Sweet Spring’s a casual, pleasant joint for catching up over desserts. I saw other tables having the homemade beancurd that comes in a quaint wooden tub, presumably one of their signature desserts. On the menu, there’s also the usual Chinese sweet soups, snow ice desserts, and a limited dimsum selection for nibbles.
