Best Tong Sui in KL

Written by Updated ago

Literally translated to 'sugar water', tong sui is a Cantonese term for any sweet soup. With that said, the origins are indeed from China but only amongst Cantonese communities. For some people, tong sui can be an acquired taste as these sweet soup desserts are made of ingredients that are not usually found in desserts, such as sweet potato, beans and tofu. We have lined these restaurants up for you so you can find the best tong sui in our central city!

Rankings of all participants as visible on our listings are solely voted by you, our beloved readers. With that said, we would encourage you to please vote for your preferred participants in order to ensure their rightful positions ranking-wise on our portal. Thank you!

    Soon Kee Herbal HousePork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Situated at Pandan Indah, Soon Kee Herbal House specializes in Chinese desserts. When it comes to tong sui, the utmost priority besides taste is it's healthy and fresh ingredients. Besides their best-selling Longan Tofu (must try!), you'll find other equally delicious desserts such as Honeydew Sago, White Fungus & Barley and even Ginseng & Snowfrog. Though tong sui is not as pretty as dolly cakes and colorful tarts, there won't be any healthier desserts around.

    Tips

    Located next to 'Dolphin Cafe'.

    Things to expect

    Healthy and delectable Chinese desserts.

    Best with

    Longan tofu.

    Price

    RM3.00 to RM6.00

    K.T.Z, also known as 'Kei Tak Sei' which literally translates to 'Remember to Eat', is a humble stall that offers a fantastic array of tong sui to the people of Kepong. If you do not mind the lack of air-conditioning, as well as a clean and proper place to dine, then you will be fine. The place does feel a lot like a hut, but hey, at least their desserts are good. The standard offerings includes lychee, longan, white fungus, lily buds, and lotus seed. They also have their shaved ice series, which is great to counter the heat of Malaysia.

    Tips

    Cash only.

    It is without a question that Din Tai Fung's steamed dumplings are remarkable but we reckon the tong sui/desserts are also equally delightful but underrated. Pictured here is the boiled papaya and sweet fungus soup that oozes out pleasant sweet notes onto your taste buds. It is the perfect finale to your dim sum fun!

    Tips

    Several branches across PJ and KL.

    Things to expect

    Steep prices...

    Best with

    Boiled papaya and sweet fungus, glutinous rice balls, and red bean dumplings.

    Tong Sui Stall @ Jalan IpohPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    This nameless Tong Sui stall is run by Uncle Khoo who has been making sweet soups for fifty years. Uncle Khoo works really hard despite his old age - his stall is open from Monday to Saturday for eight hours or till sold out. Every working day, he starts cooking the broths from 3AM over a traditional charcoal fire. To make matters more intimate, he prepares all ingredients by himself too - you could say his desserts are made with lots of love and care. The menu changes daily but Uncle Khoo ensures there are at least five options each day.

    Tips

    Closed on first and third Saturdays each month, Sundays and public holidays.

    Things to expect

    Best tong sui around the area!

    Patron's Avenue

    A rather newer establishment, Patron's Avenue has been around since October 2014 but has not necessarily made it 'up there' yet. With a good dessert menu and more importantly, delicious tasting tong sui, we have to give props to the restaurant and hopefully, some well deserved exposure. All recipes are kept traditional to ensure utmost originality and health benefits. For cold desserts, be sure to give their sago loh a go!

    Tips

    No additional taxes surcharge!

    Things to expect

    Water chestnut, gingko barley, peanut paste, bubur chacha, lotus seed, etc!

    Tong sui.

    As it is named, this spot is another dessert house for Chinese inspired fusion desserts. Besides the classic tong sui such as glutinous rice soup, birds nest and tau foo fa, there are also snow ice desserts with fruits,cereal and ice cream. The brand itself has been somewhat commercialized and thus, prices are steeper than usual. While some hot kitchen food is available here, we wouldn't recommend it...

    Tips

    The area can get dodgy when night falls... Like, really dodgy... Be careful.

    Things to expect

    A variety of desserts.

    Best with

    Sweet soups, Chinese pancake.

    Some have labelled this stall as Poon Kee but in order to avoid confusion with Poon Kee Desserts, we'll just stick to the nameless stall next to BHP Petrol Station in Taman Muda. This motorcycle-stall has no seating available but that has not stopped fellow patrons to purchase their tong sui for a quick fix. If you happen to stumble upon paste soups, be sure to try them as the peanut and black sesame soup have been noted to be smooth, creamy and unforgettable!

    Tips

    Opens from morning till mid noon.

    Things to expect

    Varying daily menu.
