There is always room for dessert …

Posted Sunday 12 June 2011 and filed under: Hong Kong,I Like Pullips and Blythes

Oh the food in Hong Kong. I must admit I’ve had some amazing food adventures in Hong Kong so far from Michelin-star restaurants to hawker-style establishments. Perhaps I will blog about some of them in the future but for now, I wanted to share the crazy-good desserts I’ve had because at the end of the day I am one, giant, walking, sweet tooth.

There are so many shops here that are purely serving dessert menus. Here are my favourites:

  • If I’m looking for a ‘healthy’ dessert (meaning that there’s actually some fruit instead of just pure sugary goodness), I quickly duck into the nearest Hui Lau Shan. They do a lot of desserts and drinks around mango – so I’m a sucker for their mango mochi, mango pudding and anything with mango and glutinous rice balls! Follow Me Foodie has a really good review of some of the mango dishes here.
  • Honeymoon Dessert is another dessert chain. As a family we’ve enjoyed a few of the dishes here. My fave are the glutinous rice balls in sesame seeds and crushed peanuts, with a little bit of sweet syrup.
  • Chung Kee Dessert is yet another dessert chain – I told you we were quite spoiled for choice here :-) This chain is a little different in that they serve a range of shaved ice desserts but also serve many fruit-based desserts. My fave without a doubt is ‘Six Fortune Rice Dumplings‘: glutinous rice balls in ginger soup, with fillings such as egg custard, green tea, red bean, sesame, peanut paste and purple sticky rice. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. I even instagram’d it!
  • One dessert that I wish I could have again and again is the super indulgent “Oreo” that I had from the Mandarin Grill + Bar. They make this right in front of you and basically it’s made up of ice-cream; a thick, rich chocolate cream; and crushed chocolate cookies. I know it sounds really simple but it is SO, SO GOOD! I will add that the dinner I had at the Mandarin Grill and Bar was also unbelievable – a visual and gastronomical delight. You can see photos of what we enjoyed over here: Dinner at Mandarin Grill + Bar by MrGadget.

P.S. Freya up there says hi! :-)
