“It’s Not Just Food, it’s the Dessert Paradise!”
How can you ever missed the dessert in Hong Kong?? From pipping hot steamy sweet potatoes soup to chilled icy sweet dessert, you should not miss any of those as I have to push you to the paradise of dessert now! Smile.
We tried a few well-known dessert shops in various locations.
1) First one, the famous chain stores named Hui Lau Shan Healthy Dessert (许留山).
A dessert store/ shop within your sight almost everywhere in Hong Kong, even the New Territories (新界区)! We went to Hui Lau Shan in Causeway Bay (銅鑼灣)@ 24-30 Percival Street, Po Hon Building, the 26th G/F (波斯富街24-30號寶漢大廈地下26號舖).
I ordered one of their recommended desserts, 芒之恋, simply means Love of Mangoes.. It came in 3 different types of petite-sized mango dessert. 1 serving of mango glutinous rice balls decorated with fresh mangoes; 1 serving of tiny rice balls in sweet creamy mango juice, and 1 serving of mango sorbet. I loved the handmade mango glutinous rice ball. Its skin was soft and springy, and the mango stuffing was not too sweet. My hubby loved the tiny balls, to be taken together with the mango gravy. This dessert dish was nicely executed, and so appealing. *Pic as above.
Besides the famous “Mango Trisome”, we had this chunk-sized glutinous rice balls topped with mashed peanut ,too. They called it 糖不甩 (read it in Cantonese as Tong But Luck), simply means nondetachable sugar, just like the mashed peanut will never be detached from the sticky rice balls. Or, the love-birds. :)
If you look at their beautiful menu illustrated with colourful dessert photos, you will surely find something you like from here!
2) Sweet Dynasty (糖朝)
Moving forward, here’s come another mango dessert from another dessert place. This is a restaurant, selling not just the dessert, but mains, snacks, and even supper. This is Sweet Dynasty (糖朝)!
This is a MUST-TRY dessert in Hong Kong, the mango and pomelo dessert (杨枝甘露). We loved the one here in Sweet Dynasty. This creamy and flavorsome chilled dessert was imaginatively presented before us. The fresh mango paste and refreshing pomelo pulps in the cream soup yielded an interesting mouth feel that you wouldn’t able to resist at all!
They happened to run a promotion during that period of time. Table with orders more than HK$50 will be given a complimentary delightful sweet corn pudding. :)
Since we were there in the early evening, was feeling a little empty in the stomach, yet, not our dinner time, we ordered a tofu dish which looked just too appealing in their menu, hubby was attracted by it. So, it turned into our order just to fill us up a little.
Tasty gravy cooked with egg white, scallops and prawns topped over steamed egg tofu, this special side dish was simply a smart choice, well done, hubby.
This 2-storey restaurant is easy to locate with its address here @ Ground Floor, 100 Canton Road, Tsimshatsui, Kowloon. Business opens till 1am. Check out detailed location here: My Note Book on the Web.
