With two fabulous experiences we had, as mentioned in previous post, we set off for more, just to satisfy our taste bud. Here’re the following stores:
3) Yee Shun Milk Company (义顺牛奶公司)
If you wish to have some dairy products or eggy dessert, don’t miss out the Double-steamed Milk Pudding (双皮奶) and Steamed Egg Pudding (炖蛋). The well-known dairy shop, Yee Shun Milk Company (义顺牛奶公司) sells terrific milk desserts.
Double-steamed Milk Pudding is usually served piping hot, or chilled. I preferred the warm one as it yields smoother and softer texture in the palate. It has also stronger milky taste than the chilled pudding. Moreover, hot milk pudding usually served with a layer of ‘milk skin’ which created from the “double-steaming” effect (see above). It’s a very unique mouth feel, describable. You have to really try it to know how I feel…. :)
Yes. Season diners and milk pudding lovers will make sure that they are served with the extra layer sits atop its soft and smooth milk pudding. Smile.
Steamed egg pudding was fragrant, smooth and runny that melts almost instantly in the mouth. I loved its strong egg scent in the palate.
I heard that frequent consumption of these two desserts will improve skin condition and create radiant facial complexion. True?!
There are two (or more?) branches in Hong Kong. The one we went was at Jordon @ 63 Pilkem Street, Jordan (佐敦庇利金街63号). Just along the main road which can be seen easily.
4) Moon Kee Dessert (满记甜品)
Moon Kee (满记) and Hui Lau Shan (许留山) seemed to offer some similar desserts, but we came to Moon Kee for their hot dessert soup, instead.
We went for a visit to Lantau Island, for the Big Buddha statue, of course. Upon our arrival to Ngong Ping Cultural themed village, (大屿山仰平市集), we spotted this small dessert shop, Moon Kee, was liven up with an influx of diners. The same situation went on even when we returned from our Big Buddha visit. Hence, we decided to stop by for some hot desserts simply to warm our body in this super cool place.
Since we just had our superlicious vegetarian lunch feast at the temple, our stomach wouldn’t allow us to have an order each of our own. We ordered just a bowl of hot red bean soup with glutinous rice balls to share. The red bean soup was served in nice and cute squarish bowl, accompanied by a large matching spoon, all in bright yellow colour. Yes, the bright colour bowls placed against the dark wooden tables has created a contrast and this set off nicely on the overall appearance of the shop, at one glance. I loved dining here as it felt so cozy and comfortable to be here.
Coming back to the dessert, perhaps it was the cold weather, perhaps it was sharing a bowl with hubby… this red bean soup with thick consistency and plentiful of red beans was the best red bean soup I have ever tasted. Its sweetness wasn’t over-whelming, and it was so aromatic in the palate. (chuckles)
We loved the glutinous rice balls, too. The taste of the balls was slightly different from any other stores as it has a hint of salty taste in these sweet balls stuffed with peanut paste. Very special, very delightful, and it was terrific!
One bowl of it was never enough, but we were really over-filled with food for that whole day there.
