Whether you prefer peanut or black sesame, here at Hougang Muah Chee, you can get half of each and these will all be devoured within minutes. Though this might seem like an easy-to-make snack, it is not that easy at all and in fact quite labour intensive if you observe the preparation process. Each ball of muah chee (made from glutinous rice) is pinched to proportionate size, dipped in a shallot oil mixture before being rolled into either the grounded peanut or black sesame. The balance of sweet and savoury is indeed an enjoyable treat. if you are around the area, do drop by and give these a try as I have heard that there will not be anyone taking over the stall once the original owners decide to call it a day. Additionally, the muah chee here is not the regular run-off-the-mill kind and hence, it might cost slightly more than what you would normally pay for if you get it elsewhere. However, the passion and hard work that goes into making these will more than make up for the price difference.

Soft, chewy muachee in white peanut & black sesame flavours. They’ve got a hint of savoury from the fried onion oil used to coat the muachee, and the flavour coating is not too sweet. Yummy!

According to what I read online, each lump of muah chee was painstakingly pinched from the big pot of muah chee instead of being cut to bite-sized pieces by scissors as muah chee loses its chewiness if snipped with scissors.

As the muah chee I tried was 'dabao'/ packed (not sure how long ago), it is difficult for me to give a fair review of the muah chee.

Anyway, I don't think the muah chee is tender, spongy and pilloyy soft, but there's no doubt that the muah chee was chewy. There was a faint aftertaste of fried shallots too. It could be because I have tried softer muah chee (wadafood or Kim Satay fr old airport). But like I have said, i did not try the muah chee when they were freshly made, so I may not be right.

The black sesame muah chee had a nutty fragrance and a mild sweetness while the peanut coated muah chee was fragrant.

Perhaps, I just need more time to get used to the taste of fried shallots when I eat the muah chee...
