[Non-halal] This Sea Park Dessert stall in Paramount Kopitiam is a local favourite.
Operating since 1969, this Chinese dessert stall is currently run by the third generation – but many still come here for their Chinese desserts and snacks.
In fact, Max used to frequent this tong sui stall regularly in the mid-2000s when he was teaching at a tuition centre nearby.

Sea Park Dessert in Paramount Kopitiam
It has been years since we visited this stall, but we were pleasantly surprised to see that it remained popular with a steady stream of customers.
The stall usually opens from 1pm until 6-7pm or when they completely sell out their offerings.
Plenty of sweet and savoury treats
This stall is known for its Chinese tong sui (sweet desserts) such as Red Bean, Black Glutinous Rice Porridge, Gingko Barley, Bubur Cha Cha, and Mung Bean Soup.
They also offer savoury snacks here such as You Tiao, Curry Puffs, Fried Popiah, Curry Fish Balls, Yam Cake, Fried Meehoon and Glutinous Rice.
These snacks are still affordably priced from RM1.20 to RM3.00.
Bubur Cha Cha – still as good as ever
Max’s favourite dessert soup here is the Bubur Cha Cha (RM3) – and it still tasted good after so many years.
The bubur cha cha here has a nice smooth consistency (but never watered down) with lots of Pandan flavour. The sweet potato cubes are also soft, while the yam pieces had a nice bite.
However, his favourite ingredient – the tapioca flour jelly was missing from his bowl.
No matter, he still thinks this is the best Bubur Cha Cha in that side of town – after sampling a few disappointing ones recently.
Ming also enjoyed her bowl of Ginkgo Barley (RM3). The dessert was not very sweet with a prominent barley taste.
The kicker, though, has to be the generous amount of ginkgo seeds in her bowl.
Almost every spoonful yielded a good amont of ginkgo – which was amazing considering we only paid RM3 for the dessert.
Fried popiah and yam cake
The Fried Popiah (RM2.50) remained consistently good after so many years with its crispy skin and generous amount of jicama and carrot filling.
The spring rolls are served with chilli and sweet sauce on the side.
We found the Yam Cake (RM3) to be a bit too mushy for us and wished it had more yam taste. However, the portion was great for the price, and our mom did enjoy the snack.
We also tapaued some Ham Chim Peng (RM1.20) – which were delicious as they were pillowy with a good amount of five spice taste.
We returned to this stall two weeks later and ordered more desserts and snacks to share.
While Ming found the Pulut Hitam (Black Glutinous Rice Porridge) (RM3) to be slightly diluted, Max actually enjoyed the dessert as it had enough pandan flavour with lots of glutinous rice and sago.
Fried meehoon with curry
We both agreed that the Fried Beehoon (RM3) was delicious. The noodles were actually flavourful and moist (we don’t like the dry version).
Interestingly, it tasted like the “Chinese vegetarian” version where no garlic or shallots were used, with some sweetness coming from julienned carrots and bean sprouts.
The noodles is best enjoyed with some curry gravy (just ask for it to be added).
We also ordered the Fish Ball Curry (RM2.50 for 3 pieces). The balls were nice and bouncy, and the curry had the right amount of santan to provide some creaminess. As the curry was not spicy, we’d imagine it goes well with the Chee Cheong Fun.

Their Glutinous Rice and Fried Bee Hoon (doused with curry gravy) are among the more popular dishes here.
