Great Tang 九龙糖 @ Jalan Imigresen, Georgetown, Penang.

If you would prefer a change of flavor from the new age desserts back to the old-school classics yet, with a new-exciting element, make your way to Great Tang 九龙糖 at Jalan Imigresen. The place opens at late afternoon and continues to serve classic sweet treats to slightly past midnight. The menu places great focuses on classic Chinese Tong Sui with some modern components; expect to find classics like Red Bean Soup, Gingko Barley, Black Glutinous Rice Soup etc but there are some Hong Kong-inspired sweet treats to challenge the norm. Prices are steep but we were happy with the quality of our orders. 

Signature Konyaku Noodles with Mango Puree (Rm 26.90)

Pistachio Paste + Black Sesame Paste (Rm 18.90)

For the novelty experience, we tried the Signature Konyaku Noodles with Mango Puree. The Konyaku Noodles were alright- they were not as bouncy as we would have hoped and barely registered any flavor. The fresh Mango Puree was delicious, probably the soul of the entire dish. When mixed with the Mango Puree and Mango cubes, the concoction was tasty. The accompanying Taro, Sweet Potato Balls and Pearls had not done much in their aid. We would prefer the dessert to be slightly more chilled or some icy elements would be good. Another signature dish of theirs- Pistachio Paste, we had ours mixed with Black Sesame Paste. The sweetness was well-balanced with discernible nutty flavor. The Pistachio Paste did not carry a bold Pistachio element but the texture was good. When mixed with Black Sesame Paste, the latter overpowered the former. If you wish to try the Pistachio Paste, we recommend trying it on its own (without mixing other types of Paste).
