Yee Shun Milk Company
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.


Steamed milk with ginger juice, cold
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.


Double skin milk pudding with lotus seeds, warm
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.




Bowls and bowls in the chiller, ready to be served
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.


Desserts and Drinks Menu at Yee Shun Milk Company
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!

  3. Hi Rita! I didn't try the chocolate one (or any of the other flavours like papaya). The only chocolate I like is Nutella these days...hehehe.

  4. Catherine, love the way you are tracking down the good eats. I go to Hong Kong quite regularly but have had little time to venture out for proper food hunts. Will be checking in to see what else you have uncovered.

  6. On the subject of dessert, I hope you've made plans to try the mango desserts at Hui Lao Shan! I recommend the mango dessert with the coconut "noodles" (jelly, really), it's quite unique and very refreshing. Wish they had a branch in Singapore!

  7. Ahh.. My favourite milk dessert in HK.. Interestingly I have been told that the Macau branches fair better than the HK ones!

    Eerational: Heya, there was a Hui Luo Shan in Singapore for a really short period of time, at International Building where TCC currently occupies. But the prices was much higher and thus the poor business..

  9. Shirley: thanks! This gives me more inspiration to blog the 20+ HK posts! :)

    Livetoeat: It is quite nice, yes.

    Eerational: Hui Lao Shan was everywhere in HK, but our guide told us it's really more popular with tourists than locals. I did try another dessert place but it's a single outlet in Tin Hau, where locals go.

    Daniel: Figures, it is a Macau chain after all.

    Liverpool: haha yes, it was very smooooth.

  10. Discovered your site from Martine and gang, who were down in Ipoh recently.
    Yishun in Macau actually serves the milk pudding at cheaper prices, compared to their outlets in HK.
    But damn good I'd agree, nothing here in Msia can even come close to the smoothness, richness and sheer creaminess of the double-boiled milk there.
