Ice Kacang has got to be the most iconic dessert in Singapore and our neighbouring countries! A Mountain of shaved ice, drenched in different coloured syrup and sometimes gula melaka. As kids we used to LOVE standing around and watch the uncle/auntie prepare this sweet treat. (and we still do)
Many of us like to dig beneath the “mountain” for various “treasures” including the soft red bean, various agar agar and the prize – atap seeds. To give this childhood favourite more texture, crushed peanut is used as a topping. Trust us, this tastes really good!
