Craving for desserts in Geylang?
Geylang Road is well known as a foodie paradise. However, despite its seedy
reputation, the whole stretch of Geylang Road is filled with good food
From Frog Porridge to Dim Sum to Bak Kut Teh to Thai bbq, you can find
authentic Chinese dishes to whet your appetite. However, dessert stores are
less than a handful on this stretch. One of them is Gong He Guan.

Gong He Guan is a corner dessert shop at the intersection between Lorong 7 and
Geylang Road. You can opt to sit indoors with aircon or at the open-air five-foot way.
Their in-house speciality is herbal jelly or Gui Ling Gao. The Gui Ling Gao
was a tad pricey compared to the other desserts on the menu. In the end, we
opt for Rock Melon with Sago and Milk and Yam Paste with Pumpkin and Ginko Nut

This is comparable to other dessert stores, such as Wan Mei Dessert. I prefer
the latter as it has a thicker yam paste. Nonetheless, it is of decent
Rock Melon with Sago and Milk

This is another satisfactory dessert for those craving a sweet dessert. The
mix of ice, rock melon, sago and milk delights the tastebuds.

The good thing about this dessert place is that you can easily find a spot. We
were there on a Saturday evening and still managed to find seats. We also like
the fact that it is open and not glassed up, so you can people-watch while
eating. The charm of having meals in Geylang is that you can see the mix of
bright lights, noise, and people walking past you as you savour the food.
This would make a decent stop if you crave dessert after a meal in Geylang.
