       Honk Kong style desserts, based on tedious preparation methods, are hard to come by in Taiwan. Naturally, I was thrilled to discover Tang, or "Heavenly Sweets", in the north of Taipei. Tang borrows upon the ancient Chinese concept that food nurtures both body and soul. Sweets served here are carefully prepared according to tradition, and, according to the proprietor, they help balance the body's Ying and Yang for longer life. Ingredients are wholesome, like the rock sugar made from sugar cane, and the selections are sensational, like Black Glutinous Rice and Lotus Seeds in Coconut Milk (NT$75), North-south Almond and Date Papaya Pudding (NT$75), Chuan Pei Pi Pa Honey Dates (NT$85) and Broiled Milk Shake (NT$70) said to whiten ladies' skin. This little dessert shop also offers Cantonese "Dim Sum" so office workers can look forward to special luncheon sets (NT$80 - NT$100) served with exquisite desserts.--By Ken Lin
