9)  Lod Chong  Singapore

–  a traditional Thai dessert made from tapioca flour with Pandanus juice and food colouring (green) added, the flour is pressed into noodle drop shape, to be eaten with syrup, coconut milk and crushed ice.  It is so refreshing and is one of the local Thais’ favourite desserts.  The most famous Lod Chong restaurant in Chinatown is called “Lod Chong Singapore”, which was established and the first one to sell Lod Chong for over 60 years till now.  It has the name “Singapore” because the restaurant was near the old movie theatre called “Singapore Cinema”.  Although the theatre no longer exists, but the name is already well known to people as “Lod Chong Singapore”, so it remains.

Location :  Intersection of Charoen Krung & Song Sawat Road, leading to Yaowarat Road  (or Mor Mee Intersection).

Opposite UOB Bank, Sam Yak Branch.

:-  “Bua Loy Narm King” or Ginger Soup with Black Sesame Filled Dumplings is many of the Thais and Chinese favourite.  The ginger soup is powerful and soothing on the throat and the little dumplings burst with a nutty sesame sensation.

:-  “Chao Guay” or Grass Jelly in syrup with crushed ice.  This is another famous healthy and refreshing Chinese herb dessert and cold drink.   It is made in the form of sliced jelly cubes mixed with sugar syrup and water and crushed ice or ice cubes.

Grass jelly is believed to be a herbal food to relieve heartburn, stomach pains, nausea, and indigestion. Its thirst-refreshing taste is also beneficial for health because of its water-soluble fiber (soluble dietary fiber).  In the body, water soluble fibers can bind to sugar and fat, so, it is useful to prevent diseases such as diabetes mellitus, heart disease, and stroke.

:-  Sweetened Gingko nuts in fresh milk – the Gingko nuts are boiled in sugar syrup to make it become sweetened and fresh milk is boiled through steam.  It is a good combination between the sweet taste of Gingko nuts and the milky taste and lovely smell of the fresh milk.

:-  Cantaloup and green tapioca pearls in cool milk – the little chunks of cantaloup tastes so delicious with the green tapioca pearls in fresh milk and syrup, topping with some crushed ice.  This bowl is so refreshing and being not too sweet with a little fruity added makes it a perfect dessert.
