  Pots of delicacies and herbal soups/drinks
by myspices

Gage Street is famous for shops and stalls selling noodles, herbal teas & drinks and many sweet delicacies and desserts. Most of the stalls selling herbal teas/drinks and desserts will have huge pots, some of which are steaming hot, displayed at the front of their shops. The smell and the aroma of herbs and desserts are so strong that you can find your way to Gage Street just by sniffing your way ........

The Chinese believed that herbs, brewed for long hours, are good for the body and soul ... there are a variety of herbal drinks and dessert - each for a different purpose. Some are for cooling effect, some for giving out heat to warm the body, some are for energy building etc. Ask the vendor to recommend.

We had a bowl of black sesame soup/drink. Yummy!
