Just when I was about to post this article, I found out that there is another article on this lovely dish being posted. So I thought hmmm, should I post it as well or should I just leave it and wait for awhile. Hell no! I’m not going to wait anymore (actually I had been hesitating to post it for about 5 days) I want to share with you this lovely tea time snack. You find this everywhere when you’re young, at getai (literally song stage) (Simplified Chinese: 歌台), is a usually boisterous live stage performance held during the Ghost Festival and very popular in the 80s
Hougang Muah Chee (Hougang 6 Miles Famous Muah Chee as what many remember them as) is the ONLY one that I would crave for and guess what? They have a stall by themselves selling mainly Muah Chee and some Kuehs. The Muah Chee (a traditional snack made of glutinous rice, usually mixed with crushed peanuts and sugar.) here is very soft and smells heavenly just by itself as the sesame oil in it is fresh.
Making of this snack is not as easy as you think as it requires great skills and experience to achieve such texture and preventing it from hardening. So as I was saying, the typical Muah Chees are mixed with peanuts and sugar. But this, they come with heavenly fragrant black sesame flavour. and if you’re someone like me who can’t decide what to have, the traditional or the creative traditional, you can choose both which I always do lol.
From the pictures, you also can taste the fragrant peanut and black sesame. Trust me you have to come to try it for yourself! There are 3 sizes for you to choose from and I am sure you know which size I go for every single time. Small: $2.50 Medium: $3.50 Large: $5.00
