Serving a wide array of Chinese traditional snacks, kuih-muih, fried noodles, porridge, dessert soup (tong sui / 糖水) and other finger food, Trishaw Dessert Stall is still an undiscovered gem that is patronised mainly by residents in Pasir Putih and neighbouring communities.

Story has it that this business began as a “tricycle vendor” that made the rounds in the area. Business was good, as you can see, that they could afford to move into a shop.

By the way, although the menu of Trishaw Dessert Stall comprises mainly desserts and other light food, there are many customers who come by for lunch. Are they all on a diet? Or do they prefer to eat a little of everything to make up one whole meal?
