Very few of those that frequent this space are the same entities that accompany me on my various munching adventures, but those that have grown accustomed to my habits can affirm that the above statement holds true in all circumstances.
Following a speed-editing session of two days' worth of images, it only seemed right to treat myself for my efforts.
The tropical fruit-based dessert parlour has two locations: one adjacent to Richmond-Brighouse on No. 3 Road, and the other in a quieter plaza on Capstan Way. I had actually planned to drop by the original location earlier during the week, but the absolutely surly attitude and despicable customer service from the opening staff had me immediately turn on my heels after ten minutes of waiting.
Those who are incapable of communicating in a pleasant, courteous manner have no business in gaining my business - homograph usage unintended.
The space is much more narrow in comparison to the first location, only offering a maximum seating capacity of twenty-ish people. Strategic placement of the utensil stand and cashier enable takeout customers to maneuver in and out of the shop easily, while dine-in dessert goers can head directly for one of the dark brown-mahogany tables.
The preparation-cashier duo was still in the midst of preparing my order as I strolled in. "We want to keep it fresh!" the girl at the cashier cheerfully stated.
The second bite had me wondering why we had insisted on re-visiting Juice King's stall at Yaohan despite the steady inflation, likely synthetic ingredients, and sickeningly rich aftertaste.
By the third spoonful (and first sip of the underlying coconut milk and crushed ice mixture), I made the sudden realization that the cup's contents were already half-demolished.
Mango Yummy's signature dish was a classic dessert done right: generous chunks of sweet mango, an abundance of chewy sago, a lovely blend of evaporated and coconut milks, and a refreshing scoop of grapefruit pulp.
