Penang Dessert – Peanut Tong Sui

Many hawker stalls do sell the Chinese sweet dessert of Peanut Tong Sui. This particular stall that we visited is located at the corner of Perak Lane and Jalan Jelutong, right beside the famous Perak Lane Fish Beehoon. This stall sells peanut tong sui which is commonly known as thor tau jin th’ng or fah sang tong sui with choices of add-on goodies.


This hot dessert comes with three different types of add ons. You can opt for the Chinese crullers (yu jar kuai) and the steamed roots of sweet potato (yellow flesh) or the yam.



I’ll usually go for the combination of everything. Prices for a bowl of tong sui is from RM 1.00 onwards, with add-ons counted separately.


This peanut tong sui is the clear type and is totally different from the thick peanut woo.


One particular favorite of mine is the crullers soaked in the hot tong sui. Indeed tasty and very comforting for the tummy.


Another add on is this bowl of bit-sized chunks of steamed yam and sweet potato. The combination of the roots with the tong sui may not be everyone’s cup of tea but I personally quite like it.
