If you like glutinous and sticky textures, pick up some sweets at Moon Man. The two things to order are the green and vanilla pandan cake and the spongy cassava cake that tastes great with pandan kaya jam or palm sugar jam slathered on top. They also sell just the jams, which would taste delicious on toast or pancakes.
