麦芽糖 & 叮叮糖 (Malt Sugar and Ting Ting Sweets) March 1, 2008

Filed under: Food — siaoyue @ 5:29 pm

I woke up with the worst ever hangover today.  The toilet was probably my best friend up till about noon time.  Too much partying at Zeta is not a good thing when age is catching up with you.

Balak suggested we go try the supposedly oh so talked about Meng Kee melt-in-your-mouth char siew (叉烧)on Jalan Alor.  But I wanted 牛记Beef Ball Noodles.  Aiyah, but by looking at his size, which do u think we opted for?


Halfway thru the ‘not so melt in your mouth charsiew’ lunch, I spotted an uncle selling 麦芽糖  & 叮叮糖 (Traditional Chinese Sweets pronounced ‘mai ya tang’ and ‘ding ding tang’) just outside.  A favourite of mine during childhood days.  Peddlers selling such sweets are a rare finding nowadays. 

In my excitement, I forgot to take pictures of the uncle’s stall.  His 麦芽糖 & 叮叮唐 are made from genuine malt sugar and it tastes so good, he’s already secured one more loyal customer.

RM1 a stick, but really melts in your mouth!!! Deeelicious


My half eaten malt sugar candy.  Doesn’t look too appealing from the pictures, but trust me they are to die-for if you have a sweet tooth.

Ha ha and miraculously, the hang over was gone right after my lunch and dessert!
