Like the steamed tapioca cake, the kueh kosui is soft, bouncy, and aromatic, but has a stickier texture. The taste of the kueh kosui is pepped up with the mellow sweetness yet distinct flavour of the gula melaka. There is a slight hint of caramel in the taste of the kueh kosui. I also like that this kueh is sufficiently sweet without being cloying.

Like its steamed tapioca cake, Xing Xing kueh kosui was also coated with salty fresh grated coconut. Besides giving it a twinge of saltiness, the grated coconut also gave an extra texture to it.

I didn't think that I would order the kueh kosui, because I'm just not a fan of it. However, I decided to buy just two purely because of the rave reviews on Xing Xing's kueh kosui. I had no expectations partly because I really didn't think I was gonna like it.

But I was wowed! I am a changed person. I love it when my attitude towards/ perception of a certain food is changed like that. In a snap, or should I say, in one bite.
It suddenly dawned on me that it wasn't that I didn't like kueh kosui, but I just haven't tried a kueh kosui that I like.

This is a really really well-made kueh.
