Open only from Thur to Sun, I will only pick this period to come to this market as I must have a bowl of “Tong Sui” from Xi Le Ting 喜乐亭 before I leave. Each bowl only $1.00. So good.

Location: Xi Le Ting 喜乐亭, Commonwealth Crescent Market and Food Centre, 31 Commonwealth Cres, #02-70, Singapore 149644

I will always order this whenever I am here for a meal. Its actually so good that I will tends to order another bowl. 😅
.
They only serve 4 types of hot dessert, Green Bean, Red Bean, Cheng Teng and Mak chuk (Sweet Wheat Porridge), all at $1.00 per bowl.

Xi Le Ting serves up old-school desserts that have recipes that are being perfected since half a century ago.

You would spot an auntie behind the stall scooping endlessly, but do not expect her to smile much.

Recommendation: please be precise and clear with orders, and don’t be surprised if some desserts are sold out early, early lunch.

There are four options at the stall, namely the famous Cheng Tng ($1), Green Bean Soup ($1), Red Bean Soup ($1) and Sweet Wheat Porridge ($1). Takeaways are priced at $1.20.

The refreshing Cheng Tng contains plentiful of ingredients from white fungus, dried longan, barley, dried persimmon to ‘pang da hai’ (boat sterculia seed). Love that this is very nostalgic-tasting served in a traditional porcelain bowl and is super affordable.

All I want now is this bowl of hot traditional Cheng Tng to drive away my Monday blues. The old (and known to be grumpy) granny at the stall insists on cooking the 4 items on her menu using the same recipes for nearly half a century till date.

Especially delighted by the slice of dried persimmon, that adds a hint of sweetness, in addition to the usual suspects of dried longan, white fungus, barley, large sago. And perhaps you might have always wondered what’s that black, seaweed-looking thing floating atop the soup. It’s the Malva Nut, something that I enjoy for its texture.

Served in a traditional porcelain bowl truly brings about a nostalgic taste, as I got reminded of the same bowl used when dining at my late grandfather’s house. Xi Le Ting also offers green bean soup (which seems to be the most popular choice!), red bean soup and sweet wheat porridge.

A great find at Commonwealth Crescent Market, a small bowl of happiness, these traditional Chinese desserts are tended by an old granny, and they don’t cost much! :’) Back to the good old days (like for me, the 90’s rocks) when things are all cheap and good!

Tong Sui, four types offered here.
From the stall, sweet wheat porridge was chosen.
90 cents each. Already included coconut cream.
Slurp! (Take away $1.20 each)
