A Different Take on Dessert
A snow cone with corn, red beans, and green jelly worms? Yes, ice kachang is a beloved Singaporean treat. You can find it in most hawker centers, and even if the thought of beans and corn in your dessert gives you pause, you should give it a try. Start with a scoop of shaved ice and point to different toppings and colored syrups until your creation is perfect. Don't be afraid to add the sweet red beans—they work surprisingly well and add a different textural dimension to the dish.
