Hui Lau Shan
G/F., 58-60 Sai Yeung Choi Street, Mong Kok, Kowloon
2781 1626

My mom and I stopped for a late night dessert before heading back to the hostel. This is probably the most famous desserts shop in the whole of Hong Kong and there seems to be one on every other street.

The Mango Pudding in Mango Juice with Extra Mango (HKD$30/SGD$5.40) is surely a hit among mango lovers. I like the pudding which is very smooth and rich. It doesn’t taste artificial at all.


I also ordered the Mango Platter (HKD$35/SGD$6.30) which is a dessert sampler.

The Mini Rice Balls in Mango Juice are good and chewy but a little too hard.

The House Special Ice Cream on Crystal Jelly is a disappointment. The ice cream is not smooth and creamy at all. It doesn’t seem thawed enough.

My favourite is this: Glutinous Rice Ball with Mango Filling.

The skin is thin and not too sticky. The mango filling is very substantial and fresh.

This place is a real favourite among locals. Even at this late hour, the shop is packed with people.

Since their specialization is in mango desserts, the menu boosts a wide variety of such desserts to choose from. I hope to come back here at least once more before I leave Hong Kong.

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!
