Ai Yu Bing ( 爱玉冰 - 噢桥 )

Ohqio ( 噢桥) or Ai Yu Bing (爱玉冰 ) is a tasty healty natural jelly. It's a famous dessert from Taiwan. But one can hardly get it from Penang food stall. Ai Yu is a kind of fig and its scientific name is Ficus pumila var. awkeotsang, a member of the fig family. The plant is sometimes grown in close proximity to Betel nut palms thus providing a tall trunk, which the fig uses as a support to climb.

The only stall that sells Ai Yu Bing in Penang.
But sometimes you can get it from Pasar Malam.

Afternoon : Opposite Chew Jetty together with Curry Mee and Laksa stall.
Night : Along the Chulia Street with the famous Wan Tan Mee and Curry Mee

The pure Ai Yu in the pail.

Perfect match with lemon and lychee.

Plus cold ice-blended and Ai Yu ........... HOJIAK!!!!!!!!!!!!

A refreshing dessert that keeps the fever away.

Oh ya! Ai Yu Bing! I really love to have it. I used to have it in Sabah when i was in Primary School. Every day after school, me and my school mates will climb up to a small little dessert track and wait for the uncle to serve us a big cup of Ai Yu Bing. I can still remember how it tasted like! But since that, Ai Yu Bing never appear in my life again :(...
I want to look for it when i go to Penang!
