To began with, my new found love. ...
I was first introduced to 马蹄糕 by my colleague. She bought it from Crystal Jade. It was chilli It's good for hot day. It help to cool our heaty body during hot weather. Found them in 2 of the Chinatown traditional Chinese shop 大中国 and the dim sum bakery shop next door during this year CNY. I bought both to tried, personally I like 大中国that has nicer texture. Whereby the other is generous with the water chestnut. Importantly I find it costly for a small tray costing close to s$9
Finally found one that's quite similar and I'm happy with it.
