Snapshot Sunday: Getting Sweet on Malaysian Deserts

Ais Kacang (ABC) in Georgetown, Penang - Malaysia

Better known as ABC, ais kacang is a desert commonly served in Brunei, Singapore, and Malaysia. Most versions include shaved ice, red beans, palm seeds, sweet corn, and rose syrup. Ours also had grass jelly (which tasted exactly like root beer flavored gummy spaghetti) and was topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

    We haven’t had ondeh-ondeh yet, I’ll have to find some before we go! (BTW, we had mangosteen for the first time today…I’ve eaten half a dozen, they’re so good!)
