Chou Niang Fermented Rice at Orchard Gateway

Jiuniang with dessert

A jiuniang glutinous rice wine shop has opened in the basement of Orchard Gateway where that outlet of Gyu Nami used to be (277 Orchard Road #B2-06). They serve a number of varieties, including warm bowls, flavored ones, and even shaved ice and mochi. The glass that I had was fragrant with just a hint of alcohol, although it was also rather sweet. I suspect that they can't crank back the sugar levels, but I'll go back to grab the traditional bottles and jars in the fridge, especially the ones with grains of rice still in them.
