Jiu Ceng Gao, for the discerning
by Donn Koh
Many insist that the only way to enjoy this unassuming work of art is by peeling off each and every one of the 9 layers that a pair of steadfast hands spent hours composing and orchestrating. Many also find it extremely excruciating to have to wait and work through all the layers and are convinced they taste better (with all 9 layers) together. Regardless how this masterpiece is relished, this brilliant kueh takes you to cloud 9 with a single bite; you have just tasted a rainbow.
