Traditional Tong Sui Stall @ Glutton Street, Muar

If you are visiting Muar I am pretty sure you would visit their famous Glutton Street. Although there are quite a number of stalls along the street, most of the food is repetitive since there are multiple stalls selling the same thing. But among all, there is one dessert stall which I find quite unique and their traditional ‘tong sui‘ is worth a try.


I am not sure if they actually rotate their ‘tong sui’ selection but we were offered Tau Suan (Mung Bean dessert), green bean soup, bubur cha-cha and peanut soup on that day. Among all I would say the peanut soup would be the one to try here while the rest are pretty common. We also ordered a bowl of bubur cha-cha and to my delight, it tasted very similar to how my grandmother used to prepare it (with tapioca jelly, not many people would still do this nowadays). One taste and I was automatically transported back to my childhood.

Just by looking you should to be able to tell that it is not the usual ‘fa sang wu’ you get in the chained franchise dessert house. Instead of being thick and creamy, the peanuts actually still have their original shape and are cooked in a mildly sweet broth. The peanuts’ texture is completely different from what you would have expected too, as they are soft after being slow-boiled and melts in your mouth – very comforting and satisfying.


Most customers take away the desserts but for those who prefer to eat here, there is a table just behind the stall.

    This is the best Tong Shui stall i have. Since i was young , 5 years old which sold at RM0.50 per bowl until now sold at RM1.50 per bowl, I still keen to have it whenever I have opportunity :-)
    The 豆算 and 六味 are my best choice. I suggest you guy to buy the Otak-Otak opposite the stall then have it together with this delicious Tong Shui.
