But we managed to get in and around the shoppers, dodge the people eating lunch, not breathe in as I walk past the store selling Durian, side step whatever is on the pavement, up and down steps and even managed to locate the fabric I was after. Then it was time for some lunch and where does one go when one is in the Arab Quarters?
Alaturka of course...... and as usual, a plate of delicious dips with the Turkish bread goes down well for lunch.
So it was a productive day.
Then Suxin came up with the suggestion of eating dessert.
Dessert? ..... hmmmmm..... but her suggestion of a delicious Mango Ice had me raring to go. So off we went on THE mission, along North Bridge Road to Liang Seah Street and this is the intersection seen here:
Liang Seah Street - where the (A) is on the map - and we were in Arab Street at the top RH corner of the following map:
These following two images are of Liang Seah Street with it's shophouses and restaurants, but it is well known as the "dessert shop street".
we walked past PORN'S, a sexy Thai restaurant - with no one inside - are people embarrassed to be seen eating here? Or is it that there food is just not up to standard??
but then we came to THE DESSERT SHOP, a dessert shop to top all Dessert Shops!
decisions are to be made ...... important and life threatening decisions. We have a choice, to have or not have....
NO WAY ..... the choice is WHAT TO HAVE!
Sweet in Heart Snowy Ice ..... but which one?
The Green Tea Flavour, Black Sesame Flavour, Almond Flavour, Banana Flavour, Almond Red Beans Flavour, Strawberry, Durian ..... WHAT? Durian ..... that spoilt the whole selection process .... let's bypass that one.
MANGO PASSIONFRUIT FLAVOUR ..... yay!!!!!
Mango Cubes, nata-de-coco, passion pearls, passionfruit sauce ..... yep, decision time, thats OUR dessert of choice.
For $5.00 it was big enough to share and it was to die for this is now my all time favourite dessert.
