For those that desire a change from the usual Western desserts, Tang Dessert located opposite Parade Central offers Asian-style desserts.

Their Crushed Ice desserts are similar to Ice Kacang, a Malaysian dessert made with shaved ice. The Crushed Ice with Taro Balls and Grass Jelly that we ordered had sufficient ice to ensure that the dish was ice-cold, and the taro balls were not too chewy. Taro paste and grass jelly added extra flavour and texture to the dish. For the topping, we chose brown sugar syrup, which had the right amount of sweetness. The dish is best enjoyed by mixing all the ingredients to spread the taste of the syrup throughout them.

The Matcha Mein Mein Ice was unique, consisting of flavoured ice shaved in a manner to give a texture resembling ice cream or snow. We liked that it had a good degree of matcha flavour and the red bean topping partnered with the matcha perfectly. For the extra topping, we went with sago pearls whose slight firmness went well with the other ingredients.

The cafe is fairly small in size and the mainly white coloured decor gave the place a clean feel. Its location makes it convenient for moviegoers that desire something a bit different from the normal fare before or after their session.
