Shan Jie Dessert House 姗姐甜品屋 @ Siam Road, Penang

Both Penangites and tourists tend to associate Siam Road with the most famous Char Koay Teow in Penang. Well, actually Siam Road housed close to a dozen of other eateries, and the latest to join the crowd is Shan Jie Dessert House 姗姐甜品屋. The unpretentious dessert house serves a variety of local desserts infused with elements from Taiwan, such as mochi. It is a simple shop without air-conditioning and fancy furniture, but the wallet-friendly price tags allow you to enjoy some delicious desserts, especially after you have a plate of savoury yet greasy Char Koay Teow.

Of all the varieties of dessert here, QQ Mochi Ice (RM 8.90) is unique and impressed us. It has mochi and black sesame topping a bowl of shaved ice. Though the overall combination sounds odd but it actually worked well. Elements of sweet and salty were combined altogether when you had the black sesame and peanut sesame together, and the shaved ice gave a cooling sensation overall.

For a more conventional dessert, go for their hot mochi (RM 4.90) instead.

We also had Black Glutinous Rice with Coconut Milk + Ice Cream (RM 4.90). The sweetness level is just spot-on, and the black glutinous rice did contribute a decent aroma on it. A scoop of ice cream combined with the warm dessert gives a flirt to your taste buds, allowing you to enjoy both cold and hot sensation at the same time.

Aiyu Jelly (RM 5.90) here is pretty great too. It served with decent quantity of aiyu, and they gives a pleasant tangy sensation by inclusion of lime juices. 

Shan Jie Dessert House 姗姐甜品屋 also mimicking other fancy cafes in the town by preparing a simple bench with LED for you to take some Instagram worthy pictures.
