Miss Dessert

Being a sweet tooth, I was very much looking forward to the newest Chinese dessert place in Houston.
Miss Dessert is a tiny spot next to Fu Fu facing Bellaire Blvd.  Plus, now that the street is fixed, it's much easier to see the sign and get in.
Not too much on the menu.  They have Vanilla based, Sago based, Glutinous Rice Balls with soup based and fillings, Mango based, Grass Jelly based, Homemade sweets based, snacks, and Milkshake blends.
I got the coconut milk sago.  It turned out to be cold, there is a warmer version, but I should've guessed it.  They are generous with the sago, but not with the portion.  That tiny dish is not very deep in case you're wondering.  And while the taste is spot on, for $4.60 for a small dish is not very price worthy.  Because comparatively, when you turn the corner (within the same shopping center) at the Gelato Cup, you can get a big cup of sago with fruit for the same price.  They will do it either warm or cold, and again the size is larger, and makes a difference.

This is a hole in the wall, and they do serve some desserts that no one in Chinatown is serving.  Some of them, you'll have to go to someone's home in order to taste them.  That said, for the price, the taste is not outstanding, now that I've tried it, I don't have to wonder anymore.  By the way, they only accepts cash and the place is small if you do end up going there with a group, keep that in mind.
