Honeymoon Dessert
Shop No.5, Ngong Ping Village, Lantau Island
2109 9988


After the healthy but bland vegetarian lunch, we went for desserts at this famous place. The original shop is at the inconvenient Sai Kung and business has since grown to include many new locations.


Being the ultimate durian lover, my mom went for the Durian Pudding (HKD$22/SGD$4) immediately. I like the smooth bitter aftertaste of it.


I tried my favourite Chinese dessert of all time—Mango, Pomelo and Sago Sweet Soup (HKD$28/SGD$5.10). The mango chunks are extremely fresh and sweet; the pomelo sacs provide a nice bitter and sour contrast; but I find that they are overgenerous with the sago balls.

The Mango Tofu Pudding (HKD$28/SGD$5.10) is very good! The mango puree is very thick and pure while the pudding is very smooth and soft.

There are a lot of varieties of desserts to choose from, including fruit pancakes which I didn't order as they are too creamy.

I can see why this place is so popular with locals and tourists alike. The ingredients used are very fresh and they are extremely generous with the toppings to make it value for money.

WELCOME!

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
