I am quite surprised to know that there is a black version of muah chee!
This stall called "Hougang Six Miles Famous Muah Chee" located inside Gourmet Paradise Food Court at Toa Payoh HDB Hub sells exactly that. The black element is actually due to the crushed black sesame seeds coating its exterior.
Of course, they do sell the usual crushed peanut version as well.
Here, the muah chee are individually hand pulled from a larger dough then dipped in shallot oil before being tossed into a bed of crushed peanuts or black sesame.
Compared to other vendors who simply place a blob of the dough into the tray of crushed peanuts and then snipping them into smaller pieces with scissors, Hougang Six Miles Famous Muah Chee's muah chee is way more chewy due to the extra stretching.
The muah chee comes in three pricing: small (S$2.50), medium (S$3.50) and large (S$5.50). You can only opt for either white or black for the smallest portion however, you can choose to have a mix of both black and white for medium and large.
I ordered a medium 黑白配 (black and white) so I could make a comparison between the two. The black sesame is fragrant but I preferred the crushed peanut more as it is slightly sweeter.
Have you tried this black muah chee before? Which version do you like more?
