Instead of the signature steamed tapioca cake, my go-to at Xing Xing/ Heng Heng has always been their Kueh Kosui (60 cents). A family favourite, I would snag a box of 10 whenever I am in the area. Firstly, the price is, of course, really affordable. The kueh is uber soft and bouncy, accompanied by a slight crunch from the coconut shavings. And apart from the lovely texture, the taste is also very well-balanced where you get the distinct sweetness of the gula melaka without it being cloying at all.
