The thought of skepticism immediately shot through my brain when Vanessa told the Gang of Four that there's a super nice muah chee in Hougang!
C'mon, it's muah chee (麻芝); a Chinese snack that does not require much preparation as far as i remember!
However, this particular one in Hougang is in a world of its own that is definitely deserving of the 'famous' tag in the shop's name.
Each lump of muah chee was painstakingly pulled out (you heard me right; it was not cut with scissors) from the big pot of cooked dough, dipped into a bowl of sesame oil that was mixed with fried shallots and finally thrown (literally) into the big pan filled with sugary crushed peanuts bits!
Result was a plate of deliciously soft, spongy muah chee individually wrapped with a layer of crushed peanuts!
The fragrance and taste of fried shallots were gently noticeable on each nugget!
One amazing aspect i must share with all of you was that the supposedly sticky muah chee doesn't stick to your teeth!

You have to eat it fresh!!!
Though the fragrance of shallots appeared stronger, the taste after an hour was just not as good.
Looks like dog shit hor? But if dog shit tastes this good, i might even dare to have a bite!!!
