Best Tong Sui in Penang

Written by Updated ago

When you're feeling under the weather but your sweet tooth aches, the most ideal dish to have that will satisfy that aching craving without deteriorating your health is tong sui! Warm, soothing and 'smooth', a bowl of sweet papaya and white fungus or gingko barley could ease your body and mind into sleep when you're feeling unwell. On the other hand, a cold and refreshing bowl of longan or honeydew sago could cool your body down on a hot day. Penangites, these spots are the ones to keep an eye out for if you're looking for tong sui!
