HK: Yee Shun Milk Company 義順牛奶公司
After my failed dim sum hunt, I continued on to the next target on my eating list. Yee Shun Milk Company at 513 Nathan Road. This is a must-try for people who like steamed milk desserts. I had several people recommending me this.
I realise I have actually eaten here on previous trips. This time I opted for the steamed milk with ginger juice (about HK$22), the cold version. It was blessed relief after traipsing around in the summer heat! Smooth and weightless, this milk pudding was even lighter than beancurd. The sweetness and ginger flavour is much more subtle in the cold version.
I could not resist a second bowl. The "double skin" milk puddings are their signature. I took one with lotus seeds (HK$25), a hot one this time. It's even smoother, and the sweetness comes through much more in the hot pudding than the cold one. There's a very thin film of "skin" on top that's barely there.
You get served really fast, because they have batches of the steamed milk ready. Here's the chiller with the cold ones in the display window.
Their desserts and drinks menu (along with some branch info in small Chinese text - sorry I can't translate). They have some Hong Kong style sandwiches and food too (other side of menu).
On the whole, certainly a pleasant dessert that scores high as a comfort food. But you gotta love milk in the first place.
After this, I headed back to the hotel as HKTB arranged a really nice dinner at Busy Suzie (Japanese rotabayaki) for us! No way I was going to miss that - next post, coming up!
