I quite like Blackball, especially since the fussy me can mix and match the toppings to my liking ($4.90 for 4 toppings, grass jelly included). Even the creamer is served on the side, excellent! Grass jelly is a must here, very good, obviously different from those sold in supermarkets and hawker stalls. I like beans so red beans and kidney beans are a safe bet. Black sugar ice jelly sounds interesting but too sweet, once is enough. I didn’t like 粉圆 when I tried the authentic ones in Taiwan but it seems like an incomplete Blackball experience without those specialty yam/potato balls. So I asked for a recommendation from the staff for the least chewy of them all, and ta-da, in went the golden sweet potato balls. No regrets, these are not too chewy or starchy. Next time I’ll ask for less sugar, and this will be an ideal (and relatively healthier) dessert for a hot sunny day!
