I’m going to talk about only one dessert at this popular shop: the ginger milk pudding. I can’t really find other dessert shops that sell the ginger milk pudding here in Singapore, unless I travel to China. I wasn’t kidding in my TikTok video when I said it’s the most balanced dessert.

In traditional chinese medicine, this dessert is the epitome of balance. TCM demands we eat foods that are balanced — neither hot, warm, cold. Foods have temperature and variants of taste within. Ginger milk pudding is made of ginger and sweetened milk. Ginger is internally warm and it’s sometimes called digestive heat. On the other hand, milk is really cold, but when warmed, it forms harmony with the ginger. Thus you have Ginger Milk Pudding as the most balanced dessert.
I don’t know about you but I love this dessert. Even for those who don’t like ginger (and I love ginger teas), you’ll find yourself becoming a ginger convert once you’ve tried this. Maybe because it’s one of the healthiest dessert there is.
Jin Yu Man Tang makes and serves this on the spot; you can’t have this for takeaway. Besides, the shop is in a quiet road inside The Flow, and it’s a great dessert shop to stop by to slow down time and grab a quick dessert on a hot day in Singapore. In my TikTok video, you’ll see that they’ll pour the liquid milk in a bowl with the ginger extract. You’ll have to wait for at least 4 minutes for the milk to harden into pudding. Mine took at least 5 minutes. Once done, you can finally enjoy it! The result is a silky, sweet pudding and as you go on and on it becomes quite an addictive treat. True enough, I feel like I’m healthier after eating this. It’s good in the stomach. Guiltless dessert!
You can choose to add red bean, lotus seeds, walnuts and other toppings in your ginger milk pudding, or go for the Signature Ginger Milk Pudding at $4.
