Indulge in “A Sweet” Dessert Delight at Burwood Brickworks, Melbourne Shopping Centre

A classic herbal treat from Asia, grass jelly goes by several names: herb jelly, leaf jelly, and grass jelly. Its popularity is rooted from its widespread consumption in South-east Asian nations including Thailand, Taiwan, and China. Grass jelly is commonly used as a jelly-like garnish in sweets and drinks, such as bubble tea, and may be enjoyed either cold or at room temperature. A Sweet Dessert Bar at Burwood Brickworks Shopping Centre, Melbourne is the best place to get the taste of this iconic Asian treat in the form of Bingsu, a Korean dessert.

Grass Jelly’s Spread Across Asia

Grass jelly dishes first made their way from China to surrounding nations, each customizing the delight to suit their particular taste in cuisine. It became a mainstay in many dessert stores in Taiwan, usually accompanied with other ingredients such fresh fruits, sweet syrup, and tapioca pearls, which now can be tasted here in Melbourne all thanks to A Sweet Dessert Bar. Particularly well-liked is the Taiwanese variant, which combines flavours and textures to produce an interesting sensory experience.

Grass jelly is quite widespread at street markets and hawker centres in Malaysia and Singapore. Here it is typically presented with shaved ice, sweet corn, red beans, and coconut milk in frozen sweets sometimes referred to as “ais kacang” or “cendol.” A favourite element in these cool delicacies, the grass jelly gives a distinctive, slightly bitter taste that counteracts the sweetness of the other components.
