Happy Beans Cafe, UEP Subang Jaya

Andrew brought us to Happy Beans when we wanted something sweet for tea time.
There's some interesting stuff here.. can try la
Yes, interesting indeed...
Happy Beans speciality is handmade yu yuan (yam balls) that you can have it served with a few ways..
Andrew ordered the yu yuan special..
His bowl consists of yam balls, sweet potato balls, cubes of yam and pearl balls. Served in piping hot ginger brown sugar soup, it reminds me of eating tong yun and bubur cacar condiments at the same time. The yu yuan has an interesting texture- it's very QQ-bouncy, compact yet does not stick to the teeth. Andrew and WF really enjoyed it.
WF order something cold, it's cincau with her selected condiments..
With yu yuan and a few types of beans. It was served with a small cup of vanilla creamer, but WF who does not enjoy milky stuff did not add it in. I actually thought it tasted pretty good with the milky stuff :p
As for me, I'm not a fan of doughy flour stuff (with no filling :p) so I decided to have their dou hua with beans.
Their version of dou hua (bean curd) was silky smooth with distinct soy bean taste. It was pleasant to eat the non sweeten dou hua with the sweetened beans and slightly ginger spicy soup. The only bean type I didnt like in this was the kidney beans. A tad hard and rather tasteless.
Happy Beans have a range of shaved ice with fruits, which looks much better than those served in KTZ. Shall pop by to try that one day.hehe..
Happy Beans Cafe is located at 46, Jalan USJ 10/1E, 47600 UEP Subang Jaya, Selangor.

What a great find! I haven't come across yam balls before, but they sound like something I'd totally dig!

550ml jar of faith: it's like the sweet version of abascus seeds, the yam/ sweet potatoes were kneaded into the dough to create this yu yuan. if you like the plain tong yuan, then you may like this :)
