What is the most popular desert at Hui Lau Shan? Why is Hui Lau Shan the most popular and famous dessert place in Hong Kong?

Mijune finds out when she eats and reviews Hong Kong deserts at Hui Lau Shan desert chain in Hong Kong.

This is one of my must visit places when I am in Hong Kong. I have to visit Hui Lau Shan at least once… if not, even once everyday. This time I wanted to try other places and I was also introduced to Tong Pak Fu desserts so I had the shaved ice cream more often than Hui Lau Shan. I would prefer the shaved ice cream, but they’re completely different desserts so it’s not comparable.

Hui Lau Shan is the most popular restaurant in Hong Kong for quick and healthy desserts. It’s a massive chain restaurant and they’re everywhere. There’s even one at the Hong Kong airport. It’s very casual eats and it’s more of a sit down and eat in 15 minutes kind of place. They’re so busy all the time that it’s common to share table with other diners. This is almost the only place serving Chinese dessert that I like, and that’s because it’s barely Chinese at all.

Hui Lau Shan focuses on fresh fruit, especially mango, and sago or tapioca. They do offer some red bean, grass jelly, and black sesame traditional Chinese desserts, but it’s not their main focus. Hui Lau Shan is a great place for any time of the day. They have an extensive menu so it will take you ages to get through it, although it’s almost all variations of mango and sago.

Sago in mango and coconut juice with pomelo and mango ice cream – 5/6

It’s been a while and the menu is a bit confusing so I actually ordered the wrong thing.
My all time favourite is actually the sago in mango juice with extra mango and mango ice cream. This was still delicious and refreshing! It’s loaded with tons of fresh fruit, sweet mango, and it’s just so flavourful. Pomelo is an Asian grapefruit. It’s not as citrusy, less bitter, and more floral in flavour. I think it’s a better tasting grapefruit.
Sago or tapioca are little round clear pearl, almost like bubble tea pearls but much smaller. It’s often seen in chilled coconut tapioca you can get at Kirin Restaurant in Vancouver, BC.

It’s naturally sweet from fresh mango, slightly citrusy with the grapefruit and slightly richer and more aromatic with the added coconut milk. Whatever you get make sure you add mango ice cream. the mango ice cream here tastes like frozen mango pulp! It’s the best mango ice cream ever. Don’t miss out! The only thing similar to this in Vancouver, BC is 8 Juice at the Aberdeen food court in Richmond, and it comes nowhere close to Hui Lau Shan.

Mango Mochi with Fresh Mango - 5/6

I actually love the mango mochi here. It has a very soft and squishy mochi skin that’s rolled in coconut. You can order these mochi in 3 or in 6. They skin is chewy, but also very soft that it doesn’t require much chewing. I actually liked it better than the authentic Japanese mochi from Japanese Deli Sweets Mochi Cream.

Crystal Jelly with Mango and Mango Ice Cream – 4/6

I really like this, but I still wouldn’t order it separately because I prefer the sago instead of crystal jelly. Crystal jelly tastes like a slightly sweetened and relatively neutral tasting jello. combines with the mango it tastes almost like mango jelly. You end up barely chewing the crystal jelly because it’s so soft and chopped up.

The mango ice cream is NOT TO BE MISSED! It’s pretty much pure frozen mango pulp! You can taste the frozen fibrous strands of real mango and it’s awesome! It’s almost like sorbet and more icy than it is cream based. I don’t even know if there’s dairy in this actually. It’s creamy from the mango, but not creamy with dairy.

  9. Appropriate. The lesson right here is that we are not accountable
    for our own short-comings. It seems as if all children are victims
    of instructors and corporations. They are surely not victims of
    a technique brought about through the Division of Education
    and authorities coverage that cherished them into submission.
    lol. . Anything to think about: The youngsters on the black
    and white demonstrates in this documentary didn't have a Department of Education.. . I'm certain?
    you are a superb child. I did not believe a lot distinct at your
    age. ;)

  10. Omega-3 from Flax isn't the very best absorbed form. You need a higher quality fish oil. Based on a survey, 44 from 47 bottles of flax seed oil sold in stores are rancid (oxidized)!

  13. Here is the thing everyone Environmentally friendly Espresso
    Extract has become shown to help in weight loss. Even so, should you sit in your butt, usually do not modify your life style,
    consider in higher quantities of sodium, consume diet program sodas,
    and eat precisely the same foods that created you obtain fat inside the very first place,
    you can't count on it that will help you. There is NO Wonder Remedy FOR Getting Overweight! Hard perform, motion, and getting aware of one's diet
    regime there's the miracle. Will anything such as this aid move factors alongside? Definitely! I will attest to that, using it to help in unwanted fat loss when I'm
    at present inside a "healthy weight range" and body fat is tougher
    to shift however it won't work if you never make other alterations in your lifestyle. Also, don't be considered a
    slave for the scale! Based on the scale I'm 5'1 tall, wear a
    size four, and am 140lbs. When i was a dimension four
    being a teen but did absolutely no fat coaching, I weighed
    one hundred fifteen. That is 25lbs of pure muscle right there!
    Go by the way you really feel and just how your
    clothes really feel judging development by anything
    that will fluctuate depending around the time from the month, the temperature outdoors, and no matter whether or not you've experienced a massive bowel motion these days will only be discouraging!

  14. Thosе who don't are the people who spend years strugglіng with tɦeir weight,
    ոever feeling utterly happy wіth themselves or theiг liveѕ.

    The seсond part of the fіght agaіnѕt "flab" is the fat
    burning exerciseѕ which are daіly rοսtines that can
    be done by anybody and will work in additioո tou your change in
    eating habits. You should concentrate on eating just natural and
    organic produce to minimize the quantity of chemicals yοu may ingest.

  15. Now in a fourth generation, electronic cigarettes have become much more user
    gracious than earlier versions which perhaps were a little too large to support a mass market appeal.
    Using an e-cig instead of smoking a stick of cigarette also shows greater consideration for non-smokers.

    In fact, what has been reported by leading doctors is that by smoking e cigarette
    vapors with nicotine will reduce the lung cancer risk of a
    former smoker to that of a quitter who does not use nicotine.
