Nothing strikes a nostalgic chord quite like a warm bowl of tong sui (traditional Chinese dessert). Come to Pudu to find the best bowls in town. Owner Ricky Yan shuns everything artificial and insists on keeping the tradition of freshly grinding the black sesame and almonds in a stone mill. Dubbed as "The King of Chi Ma Wu", his Black Sesame Paste (RM3.50) is a must-order. Caution! Take slow sips of the velvety paste as the dessert is served hot. Another crowd-favourite is the Peanut Paste (RM3.50) which boasts the same creamy texture and a super nutty flavour. If you want the best of both worlds, go for the Cha Wu (RM4.50) that features a delicious combination of peanut and black sesame paste.
