Sugar cane juice beats the thirst

I have a sweet tooth and I love savoury snacks but not for Chinese food.
The sweetness in Chinese desserts seems to taste weird and overly sweet, even their crisps are sweet.
I am not sure if the sugar used in Western food is different to the Chinese one, but the Chinese sweetness stings the throat and causes a build up of phelgm.
Unless it is plain water or sugar-free drinks it does not quench my thirst, because the sweetness of the drinks just makes more thirsty.
Anyway I assumed that it would be another one of those "been there tried that" reviews because I only wanted to try their famous Cane sugar juice and Cane sugar dessert.
From the reviews some people have said it wasnt too sweet and some said it was too sweet.
I sat down and the sugar cane dessert was placed on my table by the lady before I even ordered, but I was going to order that anyway.
Wanted to try the sugar cane juice and the hot sugar cane drink so I ordered the sugar cane juice first to see how sweet it was.
Sugar Cane dessert:
The sugar cane dessert texture was similar to those steamed red bean puddings in a bowl (butjaigo) but softer.
The first piece was hard to get as it was all stuck together.
The sweetness was not that sweet so it gave me confidence to order both the sugar cane juice and the hot sugar cane drink.
Sugar cane juice
After trying the dessert, I ordered the sugar cane juice.
It was not that sweet and similar to drinking nectar or the sap of some plants.
It was slightly grassy but pleasant.
Hot sugar cane
This was slightly sweeter than the cane juice, but it was lighter and reminded me of that drink with waterchestnuts and carrots.
I think the sweetness of the sugar cane juice varies from time to time depending on the season for sugar cane and the concentration, just like the way soy milk tastes stronger and sweeter from the bottom of the jug.
Although the shop is old, they had many interesting decorations inside like the green thing which is made of green drinking straws.
On top of the fridge there is a huge paper cup with a story cut out.
The story of how sugar cane juice is processed from washing the sugar cane, to peeling the sugar cane, extracting the juice and drinking it.
Chinese word thing made from green straws.
Price: in my opinion cheap, but then I havent tried other cane juice places
English menu: nope! not your dreams, but this shop only serves drinks.
Service: Ok I suppose, but don't expect them to serve you imediately.
Yummy factor: dessert was good
Sweetness level: the sweetness was just right and not so sweet.

Been to Kung Lee for quite a number of times for the well-known sugar cane juice. Yesterday i bought a bottle of the heavenly sweetness home and just tucked it in the fridge, leaving it to chill overnight. Took it out again to drink in the hot&moist afternoon of today, and it tasted better than ever. The thing was kinda thick to taste; the sweetness was intense and yet so natural. You feel like biting onto a real sugar cane and feeling the juice flow into your mouth. It was perfect - the only problem with it was that it was quite high in sugar and energy content so i couldnt drink too much of it.

Plain and simple ...

You squeez orange juice out of an orange, and you squeez sugar cane juice out of sugar canes. You may drink pure orange juice without diluting it, but you may have to dilute the raw sugar cane juice, or you will be in a diabetic coma afterward
I have been drinking their sugar cane juice ever since I was in grade school. May be that's the real reason why I am still so sweet .

It was really nice to stumble across this place, my friend and I had been wakling a while and it was extremely hot so an ice cold drink was perfect - We only ordered the Sugar cane juice - it was sweet - almost a bit TOO sweet
But I may be back to try some of the other items they have on offer
