Tang Yuen @ All About Sugar & Gifts, Penang

When it comes to Penang food, no one ever thinks about good dessert in Penang.  The nights are usually spent in Gurney drive or some late night food court with more char kuay teow or similar.   

All About Sugar & Gifts offers some really decent dessert.  There is a long list of tang yuen varieties to choose, from chocolate, durian, red bean, and even of course the king of fruits, durian.      


For 5 adults, we initially ordered 3 bowls to share .... but .... but .... we ended up having NINE BOWLS!!


They offer 3 varieties of base soup (1) ginger soup base (2) brown sugar soup base (3) soy milk base soup.   All 3 are nice and in fact taste light.     A bowl of tang yuen typicall consist of 3 large balls of the filling of your preference accompanied by several smaller tang yuens without any filling.     Other types of dessert include peanut & pulut rice based desserts - which was quite yummy too.

Equally nice was the simple but striking deco of the shop.  Its in CNY RED both inside & the outside with quaint wooden stools.  Its a small but very cosy shop.  

All About Sugar & Gifts is located at Lorong Susu, Off Jalan Macalister and is open till 11pm.
