If you are interested in desserts in Penang, look no further. Sugar Dynasty as the name suggest specialises in home made chinese and nyonya desserts. It's located at Nagore Road which play host to a kaleidoscope of restaurants and cafes. Like most buildings in this area, this quaint old place has been given a new lease of life. It has been restored and renovated into a restaurant and it's condition pristine as ever be. What also make these restaurants along Nagore Road really stand out is the eye catching colourful neon lights that brightly lit the road. In a way, it's reminiscent to what you might see along Clarke Quay in Singapore although I have to profess it's on a much smaller scale. OK! It's way way smaller! But then again, it great to see places like these add more colour and character to the night life in Georgetown.
Sugar Dynasty serves up to forty variety of desserts. They range from almond tea, si ke ting, herbal jelly, water chestnut egg, bird nest, papaya with almond, white fungus with red dates, barley with ginkgo nut, bubur gandum and many more.

There are only a few places in Penang that serves good bee koh moy. This one is quite nice too although I would have prefer it to be thicker like the one at Mount Erskine.
This is the red bean soup with tong yuan or glutinous rice. They provided add texture to the soup.
