Bing Tang Tang Shui in Thomson has traditional desserts
It wasn’t long ago that a HDB-themed cafe called Lou Shang made waves on the Internet. This time round, Bing Tang Tang Shui has jumped on the bandwagon of unique themed cafes in Singapore with their retro “office-inspired” interior that will remind you of a 1980s Hong Kong film.
The cafe is tucked away in a tranquil residential area in Thomson. Take note that it’s a 13-minute walk from Lentor MRT Station—it’s not the most convenient but works well if you live along the brown line.
The cafe is decked out in old-school furniture such as foldable metal chairs, and adorned with knick-knacks of cassette tapes, old newspapers, and retro clocks. There’s even a bottled water dispenser that adds to the “office” vibes. Be sure to check out their Meeting Room and Chairman Room, where you can dine in a big group!
Their menu sees a selection of small bites and traditional Chinese desserts. We decided on their Osmanthus Infusion ($12.50++), Orh Nee ($7++), and Kueh Pai Tee ($6.80++).
While we were dining there, we saw four other customers enjoying a bowl of Osmanthus Infusion.
This fragrant treat features crushed ice drizzled with sweet goji berry syrup, then topped with chewy black sesame tang yuan and fermented rice bits. If you’re not a fan of osmanthus, there’s also the classic version AKA ginger soup with tang yuan.
We were contemplating between their Honeydew & Watermelon Sago ($8.80++) and Orh Nee, but since the former was not available, we got the latter instead.
This warm bowl of Orh Nee comprises yam paste with ginkgo nuts, sweet potato chunks, and water chestnuts submerged in chrysanthemum-infused syrup. It’s topped with fried shallots for a savoury touch! You’ll love this if you’re big on sweet-savoury combinations and creamy desserts.
We also gave their Kueh Pai Tee a try. Each plate comes with four bite-sized pieces, and you’ll find ingredients such as grated jicama, eggs, and sliced prawn filled to the brim in a crispy cup.
Alternatively, if you’re still hungry, you can opt for their Chee Cheong Fun ($5.50++), Ikan Satay ($2.50++), Chwee Kueh ($5.50++), and Hong Kong-style Radish Cake ($6.80++).
