Where to eat Chinese Desserts in Hong Kong

Before I lived in HK, I really only know one place for desserts, which is Hui Lau Shan. I am glad since then, I have expanded my repertoire of dessert places.

The traditional and more favored desserts are sesame paste (believe good for darkening hair), almond paste ( for beauty and good for lungs), walnut paste (nourishing the brain), mango sago, mango pudding, toufu pudding, egg pudding, double boiled milk pudding.

The newer breed dessert stores will serve more than the traditional desserts, they may also carry western styled desserts.

Yee Shun Dairy Company

The original shop came from Macau,  I love their double skin milk pudding and it comes in many flavours but nothing quite as good the original version. Love it or hate it. Love it if you like milky stuff. Stay away if you arent into the milky flavours.

Auntie Sweets 

This place is not hard to spot as its  probably the only dessert store that has a queue among the others in Tin Hau. Famous for the durian toufu fa and 心太酸. Their durian toufu fa is very smooth and creamy. Simply divine. Way  above the others I have tried in HK. Their 心太酸 very creative, like the western version of molten chocolate cake where the inside oozes out when you cut into half, only that is super sour.

聰嫂私房甜品

 Desserts here taste pretty average. Typically HK style desserts are a combination of many different items put together eg, grass jelly with fruits topped with ice cream. This place is unique in their dessert combinations and I must say it may seem weird but it does go together. They have pictures so you can also just point.

五代同糖

This place is a bit of fusion. It serves HK style desserts and also more Western ones, like souffle, molten chocolate cake. Their souffle is a bit mushy. I like the Taiwanese style snowflake dessert and egg pudding which comes in an egg shell like glass container.

Lucky Dessert 

Better known for their tofu pudding, mango related desserts, hot chestnut paste,  糖不甩. Fortunately, menu comes with pictures.  I tried their mango sago and it taste pretty normal.

恭和堂  Kung Wo Tong

If you are into herbal teas and herbal jelly… this is the place. Well, I got a sweet tooth so it was a bit too bitter for my liking.

There is also another chain of herbal jelly shops which is sweeter, called Hoi Tin Tong.

源記甜品專家  Yuen Kee Dessert

This place is a little out of the way. But worth the walk especially if you are into traditional desserts like almond paste. Their cake is a bit too dry. Its one of the few places in HK to still use the traditional grinding method of sesame seeds and almond nuts to a fine powder. But this is not one of the smoothest paste in HK.

杏花樓甜品  Hang Fa Lau Dessert

Known for ginger milk pudding made fresh means you will need to wait out for a good 20minutes. Their toufu fa and other desserts are also pretty decent. Its a pity the one near my house closed down.

 囍宴 東‧丰  Xi Yan 

 This is a restaurant that gives traditional desserts a creative twist. I love their custard dumplings encased with sweet peanuts and custard that oozes out. Yum! Lychee ice cream with osathamus wine is really good…
They have an shop in Tanjong pagar too!

王記糖水  Wong Kei Tong Shui

This hidden gem in Northpoint. The service is friendly surprisingly for HK standards. Their congee is super delicious with crunchy peanuts that adds a nice bite. The main attraction there is their warm hot winter desserts like the almond, black sesame paste. Only open at night, be prepared for a squeeze and also to queue for your food.

綠林甜品  Luk Lam Dessert

This is my go to place for desserts in Sham Shui Po. The menu is extension, family run friendly service. Their almond, black sesame paste is great. Not too sweet and very smooth too.

小方糖甜品 

 There is a long wait before we got seated. Sadly, I find their desserts really mediocre.

香港大學校友會  Hong Kong University Alumni Association

This place serves one of the best egg white almond paste I have ever tasted. Its thick, creamy, smooth and tastes really divine! Unfortunately, only HKU Alumni with guests are allowed. Sorry!
