Koong Woh Tong is one of those old-school Chinatown shops specialising in traditional Chinese herbal and medicinal drinks. One of the must-not-miss items there is the "gui ling gao" (tortoise-shell herbal jelly), taken with a generous splash of liquid syrup. The "gui ling gao" here trumps the versions I'd had in HK, China, Taiwan and elsewhere: just the right firmness in the jelly's texture and herbal flavours without the bitterish after-taste.
Koong Woh Tong also serves a variety of bitter Chinese herbal teas - un-missable!
