Remember this place named after a famous and intelligent scholar in China; Scholar Tong Pak Fu? (Read here)
Well, we have recently revisited the place during the weekend; to relish the tastes of the desserts and also to battle the heat and high humidity from the crazy weather we have these days, besides spending time like the old days (before marriage :-)
As I have previously described the place, I shall jump directly to the desserts we ordered to save the time of reading through my lengthy description on the place alone (yes, I do know that I can be extremely lengthy with words sometimes;)
The Glutinous Black Rice Ball with Coconut and Mango
(Hubby is a fan of glutinous rice, as most people are, with the exception of yours truly as it gives me indigestion)
Huge cuts of fresh and sweet mangoes are a to-die-for for mango fans out there.
Glistening with pride in the light; the generous lump of sinfully rich glutinous black rice
This is definitely a place to be for anyone who has a sweet tooth and a soft spot for glutinous black rice as there are many varieties of the black rice served with many more different ingredients.
Sunmelon with QQ Balls; fruity and refreshing delight me more with its vibrant flavors bursting with sourness blended with the sweet scent of the sunmelon.
The spoonful of the 'popping' QQ balls; which sorts of 'Pops' and then burst with a little sourish juice when you bite on them.
Cute, but I would prefer the chewy black pearls anytime :-P
(My favorite shot; and for those of you who have 'liked' my Facebook page and feel that this is familiar, yes, this is my cover photo for the page at the moment :-)
Our desserts...before we devoured them!
I enjoyed the lovely and picturesque photos/paintings they hung on the wall; depicting the beautiful Suzhou; the place of origin of Scholar Tong (oh yes, I have been to Suzhou too and I can vouch for its beauty!;-)
We had the whole cafe to ourselves at that time and there was so much privacy.
I guess we were just lucky to be there during the non-peak periods or else, there are usually patrons there throughout the day too.
Maybe the next time we should try their other signature desserts; but we will need to come in a larger group; 4-5?
