Durian Ice Kachang From Jin Jin Hot/Cold Dessert

This re­fresh­ing dessert is beloved for its tower of ice shav­ings and psy­che­delic hues, and we dig the trea­sure within, too – who hasn’t tried find­ing the at­tap chee among the red beans, corn and jelly? Orig­i­nat­ing from ice balls coated with coloured syrups sold on the streets in the ’50s and ’60s, the sweet treat has evolved into an elab­o­rate cre­ation packed with ev­ery­thing from aloe vera to peanuts. Jin Jin’s ver­sion ($2.50) adds an­other level of deca­dence: a scoop of Mao Shan Wang durian ice cream crowns the moun­tain. It blends smoothly with the syrup, with­out be­ing over­whelm­ing, and the finely shaved ice im­me­di­ately melts in your mouth.
