When the folks visited some weeks back, we brought them to the different ethnic enclaves in Singapore which included Little India. It was a good way to showcase the uniqueness of Singapore as we embrace multi-culturalism, multi-racialism and multi-religion all under one roof. 😉
After a satisfying lunch of curry fish head at The Banana Leaf Apolo, we explored the neighbourhood and discovered Moghul Sweet Shop at Little India Arcade.
Great variety of sweets and desserts that came in different shapes, colours and flavours. We were so spoilt for choices, lol. In fact, most people who were there (mainly tourists) would just stop by the shop and get something because the display of goodies was just too pretty to miss. 😀
After paying for our sweets, we were about to walk away from the shop when I noticed this separate shelf on the side that housed trays of samosa and kachori. So excited to see the samosa as I was craving for it since having a really good one at the Little India in Penang. So I got two of them. 😀
The Samosa Vegetarian ($2.50) looked just like the one I had in Penang.
However, this samosa didn’t taste as good as it looked. The crust was somewhat hard and dry. And the filling wasn’t very redolent of spices. Disappointing. 🙁
J picked out these selections as he wanted to try Indian sweets for a long time. Wish fulfilled, lol. Starting from the two brown balls in clockwise direction, we got the Gulab Jamun, Coconut Ladoo, Jalebi, Mysore Pak, Chocolate Burfi and Pista Burfi (white square in the middle). They were priced from $1 each.
I had tried Gulab Jamun before when I dined at Riverwalk Tandoor previously. They are basically fried milk balls in syrup which kinda tasted like donuts. Very sweet but quite tasty.
Honestly, I am not a big fan of all these sweets because they are super, super saccharine. Just a tiny bite is probably enough to send me into hyperactivity mode and give me a high spike in blood sugar level. Taste wise, I’m not even sure how else I can describe them. All are sweet. Some are milky. Some are soft whereas some are chewy.
Well, if you can tolerate extreme sweetness and generally have a sweet tooth, then go Little India Arcade to check out this sweet shop. With its huge variety of sweets, I’m sure you can pick out something you’ll like. But remember to share them with family and friends. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to pop the whole piece into the mouth at once. 😐
