Yee Shun Milk Company (Hong Kong)

Yee Shun Milk Company (Hong Kong)

It was my second day in Hong Kong with Glenn and both of us headed out for some claypot rice (which will be blogged about later) Yau Ma Tei.

So after our dinner we explored the surrounding area for a while.  After passing by countless Chow Tai Fook, Chow Sang Sang and Luk Fooks, we stumbled onto this quaint little place that sells milk based desserts.

Prior to this trip, I have watched some Taiwanese variety show that introduced this milk base dessert.  Basically, its milk pudding made from either steaming or adding a solidifier e.g Ginger juice.

It was after dinner, and we’ve walked around a bit since it was a bit cold outside, we decided to sit down to rest our tired legs and to chow down on some sweets before continuing with our exploration.

There are many varieties of milk puddings to choose from, and all of them come either cold or hot.

I ordered their Famous Double Skin Milk Pudding (a direct translation from the Chinese name) and I had it hot.  The pudding was really really smooth.  Smoother than silken toufu or chawanmushi.  The top layer of skin is actually curdled milk from the cooking process.  On first taste, it was really smooth and sweet.  To compare the taste, it somehow, tasted exactly like Anlene milk.  But then half way into this, I found it a bit heavy because it was a bit too sweet.  If its cold, maybe it would have been a bit different.

Glenn ordered a cold Ginger Milk Pudding . This was a lot more refreshing and tasted a lot lighter than my pudding.  I’m not a big fan of Ginger, but the Ginger taste in this pudding was strong but not overwhelming.  The spiciness of the ginger counteract the sweetness of the milk pudding thus making it a lot easier on the taste buds.

Personally I liked this a lot better than mine.

  1. i find that even when milk pudding is cold, it should be shared. it’s a dessert where the principle “more does not mean better” applies!

    1. I've subbed to Val & OrtoPilot for a long time, but I voted for evoVTeynm. Val & Matt have decent sized fan bases & evmoneyTV needs the exposure more.I do no sub evmoneyTV, but I did check out there channel since this was the first I'd heard of them.

    2. Das Tool ist wirklich super, aber bislang leider wie gehabt für englische bzw. US-Produkte ausgelegt. Schade eigentlich.[]Hallo Carlod,ja leider gibt es das nur auf Englisch. Mal schauen, vielleicht auch bald auf Deutsch GrußThomas[]

    3. Which is a better pacifist position, both country’s weapons rusting in the silo or one country using it without threat of retaliation?Woody, I totally understand your logic. However, a pacifist would never threaten someone with retaliation.

    4. Merveilleux !!C’est le mot qui me vient lorsque je pense à l’anniversaire qu’a eu ma fille mercredi dernier.L’animatrice que l’ont a eu c’était déguiser en « Blanche-neige ».Ce costume lui allait (comme un gant).Est-ce que c’était du sur mesure ???En tout cas merci la Ribambelle pour ce superbe anniversaire.A bientôt !!

    5. Henry really did kill an astounding number of people, and so did his daughter Elizabeth. He also had the charming habit of granting his protesting people safe conduct and pardon, and then rescinding it as soon as people split up to go home.

    6. Är NC-delen i CC-BY-NC-SA-licensen så strikt att den inte ens medger försäljning till självkostnadspris? Man kan ju annars uppfatta "icke-kommersiell" som "utan vinstsyfte". Jag läser den fullständiga licenstexten och det verkar som att byteshandel med annat upphovsrättsligt skyddat material är OK, men inga former av monetär ersättning. (Men om man tar betalt i natura, då? Ett tjog ägg mot ett häfte i svartvitt tryck?)

  2. I would agree with you stargirl, but we were trying to get the best out of our trip at the expense of our stomach and waist line…

  3. I much prefer the deserts at “Australia Dairy Company” – Parkes St, Kowloon. I’ve eaten at both and have to say the Australia Dairy Company’s steamed milk pudding is smoother by a country mile.

  4. @Sidney: Never had the opportunity to try Australia Dairy Company. Next visit, I will 🙂 Thanks for the recommendation bro!

  5. @Glenn: no worries dude, trust me, once you go there you’ll never go anywhere else again. When you try that place take a visit to the wanton mee shop next door.. order the wanton mee and the har zhi lo mein.. 🙂
