HEALTHY SWEET DESSERT


While window shopping in Bandar Utama recently, we chance upon this little shop housed inside Excellent Herbal Food Centre, fame for selling local and imported chinese herbs and delicacies.  The menu was simply written in Chinese and English.  Besides selling nutritious sweet dessert such as bird nest, snow jelly and etc, you can also savour abalone in various cooking method and fried rice or porridge cooked with Japanese scallop and oyster.



Each dessert was served in a white ceramic bowl
 
DOUBLE BOILED SNOW JELLY WITH COCONUT MILK AND GINGKO (RM12++) 
'AVAILABLE ON SAT & SUN ONLY'
The coconut milk was indeed fresh with lots of soft bubbly snow jelly floating on top. But I prefer my gingko to be softer instead of crunchy. Worth trying it.
BENEFITS OF SNOW JELLY
literally known as Hashima, Suet Kap, Winter Frog or cheaper version of bird nest. It is high in collagen and thus helps in beautifying the skin. Other benefits are boost immune system, improves body stamina and resistance, anti aging, regulate hormon balance and etc.
BENEFITS OF GINGKO
also known as Gingko Biloba (tablet supplement) and great assistant for brain i.e improving memory, mind booster, concentration, alertness, mood and focus.

DOUBLE BOILED WHITE FUNGUS WITH AMERICAN GINSENG AND WHITE LOTUS SEED (RM6++)
Instead of American Ginseng, the smell of red dates was strong and overpowered this bowl of concoction. I find the translucent white fungus soft enough and white lotus seed well cooked. Not my fave!
BENEFITS OF WHITE FUNGUS
expel heatiness, strengthen stomach, moisten skin, regulate blood flow
BENEFITS OF AMERICAN GINSENG
fight fatigue, combat cancer, boost energy, strengthen immune system
BENEFITS OF WHITE LOTUS SEED
prevent constipation, strength stomach, jaundice

  1. A lot of this kind of places mushrooming all over... I guess the sweetness is not from sugar? I do take some of these alternative herbal stuff for general well-being - much better than the chemical factory-produced western ones, I think.

  2. This is my first time having healthy dessert in a shop as I always prefer home cooked which is less expensive and authentic.
