Of course, if you are here for a full course meal, no dishes would be complete without the sweet ending of a delectable dessert. Take their Chilling Gui Ling Herbal Jelly, for instance. Presented in a style of an agar agar jelly type, the cooling yet bitter sensation of the gui ling gao served with a blanket of honey syrup is one delightful finish to end your meal with a smile on your face.
