Gao Lak Galore

Hopscotch Paint Splat

Traditional ‘Gao Lak”, or Roasted Chestnuts were a once popular snack. However, due to increased cost of living and the immense labour required, the trade of roasting chestnuts traditionally has lost its viability, and things have been reduced to the point that there is only one last licensed peddler in Chinatown left selling roasted chestnuts the traditional way.

The chestnuts were roasted together with coffee beans, which help disperse the heat evenly. This process also immits a rich and signature aroma, which people can immediately identify at a certain proximity.

The chestnuts are usually stored in a metal and glass container similarly to the one served here, and when the lid is opened, you get a nice whiff of coffee and chestnut smoke. The drink is also served with a piece of roasted chestnut to pair with the drink. Have a bite of it first before having the drink.
