Shop No.5, Ngong Ping Village, Lantau Island
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.
