Ri Xing Xiang Ji, Maxwell Food Centre

Ri Xing Xiang Ji

Hey that was pretty darned good! I don't know what these little fried balls of dough were called, but the pandan coconut version was exactly what I was looking for: a mildly sweet and greasy snack to pop in your mouth. I liked these guys (Maxwell Food Centre Stall 76) better than that hum jin pang stuff. And arguably these greasy things are more suitable for being called the local version of Krispy Kreme.
