There are a number of new F&B outlets at VivoCity. One of them is Honeymoon Dessert, which is a chain of Hong Kong dessert shops (it also has multiple outlets in China). Rick and I stopped by after dinner on a weeknight.
The menu is mostly fruit-based desserts. Mango is a popular ingredient in HK desserts, but I was surprised to see many other tropical influences, like coconut, palm seed, and durian. Didn’t expect durian to be popular in Hong Kong!
Both Rick and I happened to pick coconut milk-based items. The Snow White Sago is a Honeymoon Dessert signature item — mango, banana, palm seed, and selasih/basil seeds in coconut milk.
It’s an unusual combination, but surprisingly, the flavors work well together. Very fragrant and refreshing! Unfortunately, the mango cubes were rather mushy. Maybe they were over-ripe or left to sit for too long.
The sago with toddy palm (sea coconut) was much less interesting. Maybe we’d have enjoyed this more if the toddy palm was more tender. It was very hard to chew. A case of too mature toddy palm?
We’ll probably be back to try other items here, as we regularly come to VivoCity for meals or grocery shopping. Actually, VivoCity has a very comprehensive range of dining options. A new F&B outlet with pocket-friendly prices is definitely welcome.
