Lucky Dessert Reviews
Lucky Dessert, Lucky Me! Jul 23, 2010
This is one of the most popular dessert restaurants located at Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. The queue seems never ending. The restaurant is small and cozy and has a high and fast turnover rate, so even if the queue is long, we got our table pretty fast. A local friend who took us there explained that in Hong Kong, food is like a trend, like what is new and in at the moment is a dessert made out of shaved layers of ice with a variety of flavours. This restaurant in particular does not serve traditional dessert but rather innovation and some fusion desserts. We ordered a few to share and all the items were delicious. We saw a couple on our next table, who could not decide on what to have and ended up ordering about 5 different types of desserts to share. Now that’s a lot of desserts for 2 people. We ordered 4 types of desserts:
1.The latest trend, shaved mango layered ice which was served with cut mangoes and something that taste like shark fin or it could be just imitation shark fin jelly.
2.Durian in filo pastry, the flaky pastry goes very well with the creamy durians filling; whereby in Hong Kong they usually use Thai Durians which has more flesh in the fruit than the ones from Malaysia and less pungent in fragrance, though many said that the durians in Malaysia had more zest to the taste.
3.The classic mango, sago, pamelo dessert, (a.k.a Yong Zhi Kam Lo in Cantonese) my all time favourite.
4.Sesame dessert which is treacle-like, aromatic; serve cold with cube grass jelly (a.k.a Cincau) unlike the classic Sesame dessert (a.k.a. Ji Ma Wu) which is serve hot without any jelly.
This is definitely worth the queue!
