  • The best Chinese dessert place you should visit after a satisfying steamboat meal at Chinatown. Mei Heong Yuen is one of the few shaved ice dessert shops you will ever find on the island, earning a spot on many tourists’ list of go-to places. Just a short stroll to the Chinatown MRT, locals go to this shophouse frequently to find comfort from the hot days.


    • Wide collection of unique snow ice desserts: There are approximately 20 flavour options. Imagine! Sheets of shaved ice are piled up over one another to create a mini-tower that can be shared between two persons. You may think it sounds like your usual Ice Kachang but you’ll be surprised to realise that the flavouring of your choice has already been mixed into the ice sheets itself. It is also worth mentioning that the consistency is comparable to ice cream for its creamy taste. Apparently, this is how Mei Heong Yuen differs from the other Chinese dessert shops in Singapore.
    • For a bowl of traditional Cantonese paste dessert: Looks rather plain as there are no other mixes put into the dessert but unarguably healthy and can satisfy the older generation, nonetheless. Peanut paste is a crowd favourite, while Walnut, Sesame, and Almond pastes can give customers something to think about. These traditional paste desserts are made of healthy ingredients, served in soup consistency, and the portions are good for one person.
    • Cakes and dumplings are worth exploring: If you like to challenge the status quo, dare to try the Cantonese dumplings with an icing dip. It’s an odd concept but it might be a great game-changer for you. Other interesting selections include Chee Cheong Fun, Mango Rolls, Pumpkin Cakes, Carrot Cakes, and Glutinous Chicken Rice.

    MENU: The menu is decent-sized, offering interesting snow ice flavours. There are four different categories to wander your eyes at, including special desserts, snow ice, traditional pastes, and cakes & dumplings.


    • Mango Snow Ice
    • Chendol Snow Ice
    • Durian Snow Ice
    • Peanut Paste
    • Mango Roll
    • Durian Mochi
    • Glutinous Rice Balls in Ginger Soup
    • 3-Colour Cakes
    • Glutinous Rice with Chicken

    AMBIANCE: Located at a shop house in Chinatown, Mei Heong Yuen doesn’t sport any fancy décor but it is well-maintained and smells clean. In fact, the stall looks so ordinary on the quaint Temple Street that if you are not familiar with Chinatown, you might unknowingly pass by it. Inside, the crowds can get noisy especially on busy days but if hustle and bustle doesn’t exist in the atmosphere, it shouldn’t be called traditional Chinese dessert place as they claim then.
