Tong Shui Cafe

54 Zion Road

The first thing that struck me about Tong Shui was its Shanghai Tang-esque decor: bright pink and green walls, traditional Chinese rosewood tables and stools, quirky wall hangings... it was at once energizing and uplifting, particularly on this otherwise dark and quiet street. But with the Hong Kong-style cafe's seemingly unending menu, energy (and focus) would not be misplaced. It is almost impossible not to find your favourite snack amongst the vast array of hot and cold desserts, and quick bites on the menu. There are about 12 different types of chee cheong fun (steamed thick-cut rice noodles) alone! For first timers, a good rule of thumb would be to order something with a green spot: chef's recommendations.
First on my plate was the ultra-decadent Toast with Peanut Butter and Condensed Milk. Sounds simple enough, but central to the success of this dish was the thick slab of traditional Chinese bread, which held strong against the flood of peanut butter and condensed milk. Suffice to say, every last drop was assiduously mopped up.

Distracted as I was by the toast, by the time I got to my Mango Pomelo Snowy Mountain, the ice-caps had already started melting. This probably diluted the typical sweetness of this dessert, but I still enjoyed the crunch of the pomelo and ice against the soft smoothness of the mango bits. (In case you're looking, this is no. 80 on the menu).
