Mango sago with pomelo at Ah Chew Desserts

After the Peranakan dinner, my friends take me to Ah Chew Desserts, a traditional Chinese dessert shop. It's packed with youngsters. Mango sago with pomelo is beautiful. Pomelo, a grapefruit-like fruit that seems to be widely available in Singapore, tastes a bit insipid on its own. But with the strong flavor of mango, the grape-fruit texture of pomelo becomes an excellent twist to the dessert.

According to my friends, this kind of traditional Chinese desserts is no longer cooked at home. Today's youngsters whose mother doesn't know how to make these desserts flock this place probably because it's something new to them.
