SHAVED ICE DESSERTS AT KEDAI MINUMAN TAI SOO NO.1, IPOH NEW TOWN

Once a month, my friend and I will make a trip to town to run some errands. We usually go in the early morning to avoid the afternoon hot sun.
Passed by this beautiful house on my way to pick up my friend. I love the beautiful plants and fence.

But there was once when we went in the afternoon and after we have finished our errands, we went to this little side stall at the side of a shop to have some desserts. I have heard about this place and wanted to try the desserts.
We can refer to the menu on the wall and choose what we want. The prices are printed on the menu.

We ordered a bowl of ice kacang (above pic.) and a bowl of tofu fa with red kidney beans and cendol (below pic.)

I like the tofu fa because of the toppings. At most places, the tofu fa does not have these toppings.

On my 2nd visit with my hubby and 3rd visit with a church friend, we ordered the same things. I thought I wanted to try something new but somehow ended up with the same order. I hope the next trip I go, I will remember to try something else.

For those interested, this Kedai Minuman Tai Soo No. 1 is at Jalan Raja Musa Aziz, Ipoh, facing Kedai Makanan Loke Wooi Kee (below pic.) which is across the road.

Linking to Good Fences and Skywatch Friday.

"Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks,

and send some to those who have nothing prepared.

This day is holy to our Lord.

Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength."

(Nehemiah 8:10, NIV)

  5. I love beans in any cool dessert. What is that stringy ingredient?

    1. The stringy ingredient is called cendol. Cendol is rice flour with green colouring, made by pressing the warm dough through a sieve into a container with cold water.

  18. That house is nice and has a very lovely fence. - The desserts you had a so very different from any dessert we eat here. I'm not sure I'd enjoy kidney beans in a dessert.

  22. I'm not sure I would like the desert because it looks a bit strange to me but I love some food that are totally strange to some, like poutine rapee. It's an Acadian dish with potatoes balls and pork inside. It's an acquired taste I think.
    That fence and the pretty flowers is so lovely. Such a pretty place. Have a nice weekend Nancy.
    Hugs,

  23. That cendol looks promising. Too often cendol are these fat too-green worms that just taste like flour without fragrance

    1. Oh Stacy, talking about green fat worms, I have a friend who refused to eat cendol because they look like worms! Ha ha ha!
