“I love this dessert since my childhood days!”
– Chef Wee Kweong (aka Terry)

Jokes aside – it’s rich, creamy and super yammy! From yaps to yums – Chef Wee Kweong’s friends and colleagues didn’t like the Gingkos in other regular Orh Ni so he recreated his own and perfected his recipe.

It all started out as an experiment for Chef Wee Kweong. Now, perfection is an understatement.
