Gula melaka ice kachang from Chinatown Food Centre

This deserves mention. In spite of its ordinary appearance, this was actually one of the better ice kachang I've had for years. Granted that I do not actually go searching for good ice kachangs on any basis. What differentiated the bowl from most of the other rainbow hued syrup concoction was that there is only palm sugar and evaporated milk. Instead of just being sweet, there was also the fragrance from the gula melaka. The little chunks of fairy grass that they included tasted like real fairy grass instead of ambiguous bits of obsidian agar agar

And I've only been introduced to this stall (#02-104 Chinatown Complex Food Centre, 335 Smith Street) in recent years.
