Penang Wan Tao Loong Jelly Dessert

Posted by Cokeworld Citizen | 12:10 AM | , , | 7 comments »

My dad told me that this dessert has been around for quite a long time and its name is 'wan tau loong' haha. This dessert is sold by an aunty (sometimes uncle) who
manned the van. They sell Chendol, Ais Kacang, Sirap water with jelly strips, green grass and so on.

This dessert is available both at Jetty (in front of a small fridge junkyard) during day time and Chulia Street (near the curry mee lot) during night time. The seller would scope the jelly into a bowl, add some lychee fruit + syrup and squeezes a slice of lemon as a finishing touch.

The picture below is how the final dessert outlook. The jelly was soft-silky smooth unlike other jelly. With lychee fruit and its syrup...perfect together with a slice worth of lemon juice.


An interesting dessert, simple, cheap and taste good ;)

Happy reading~

    I pass by jetty area sometimes. That area sells laksa and curry mee too. You don't have to go there to get these desserts as there is a stall selling this dessert at some of the pasar malam (Perak Road & Farlim) ;)

    Remember that you are looking for 'Ai Yu Bing' jelly powder.

    Hi JM: If you go to Tanjung Tualang, there's wan tau loong there too. Tg Tualang is off Batu Gajah and is famous for its reared prawns (but don't eat too much reared prawns.. full of chemicals, that's what my fishmonger tells me and it is true). The wan tau loong there is served with shaved coconut and ice and lime. A great drink. Wan tau loong is made from the inside pith of a type of fruit.
