All About Sugar & Gift located in Lorong Susu, Penang is a newly opened outlet serving Chinese desserts. This outlet with a simple and homely ambiance has different sweetened fillings of freshly prepared tang yuen made from glutinous rice in a variety of tong-sui.

We had the Tang Yuen with different sweetened fillings, the red bean paste and the green tea paste. Both the paste were just as good, fine and tasty. The texture of this tang yuen is slightly chewier compared to the soft and tender ones that I have eaten at HK Tang Yuen in New Lane.

We had three different flavors of tong-sui, served in miniature glasses – red bean, black sesame and cashew nut. I like their new trend in serving the cashew nut tong-sui which is not easily found around town. The cashew nut tong-sui was flavorful but the black sesame tong-sui lacks the rich roasted aroma of the sesame. All the tong-sui had the right sweetness but I did tasted a bit of saltiness in the red bean tong-sui which was not to my liking.

We also ordered bowls of cashew nut and the black sesame tong-sui with colorful big and small tang yuen. The  items available in the menu are the tang yuen and the tong-sui. No savory snacks were listed at this moment. The total bill cost RM23.10.

I like the fact the balls of tang yuen are of different sizes and colours… symmetry is good and balanced… but sometimes asymmetry can be more interesting and eye-catching, ya? :)

allie – It is rather unusual finding this item in tong sui shop.

xiaoyu – Lorong Susu is just beside the Sun Yat Sen building and opposite the UMNO building of Mccalister Road.

buzzingbee – Another place for something sweeeeeet.

J2Kfm – It’s just a nice catchy name…no gifts items for sale.

taukwa – Thanks for asking but I can’t think of anything. Just waiting to meet up with you again.

Much agreed! I think harmony comes from the balance of everything being slightly different and the compromise that becomes a dance of flavours (in case of food)… and well, much of everything else too, I guess. :)

I will definitely drop my footprints there soon. :)

I went to try with my family and we found the dessert too sweet to our taste and furthermore the Peanut cream does not come with the Bid Tang Yuan as illustrated. Sigh ……..

Jessie – Everyone of us can accept different level of sweetness and mostly are going for the ‘kurang manis’…haha.

FeiMui – That flavor sounds interesting…will try that.
