One of my must-eat missions in Hong Kong was Yee Shun Dairy Company’s famed steamed milk pudding. After trying, I’m delighted to say it’s really worth the trip!
Ethereally smooth and light, this bowl of milk pudding is incredibly comforting. Its texture is even more delicate than our local tau huay 豆花. The pudding has a distinct milky fragrance and is not too sweet.
Of course, you probably have to be a milk lover first to appreciate it. It’s available both hot and chilled.
We tried the Lotus Nut On Steamed Milk With Two Films. The lotus seeds are sweet and tender to the bite. Mmm! They also have other toppings like sweetened red bean.
We also tried the cold Steamed Milk with Egg. This one is a lot firmer than the hot milk pudding. I didn’t quite enjoy the strong eggy taste.
Besides the original steamed milk and steamed egg puddings, there are other variations like ginger, coffee, or chocolate. The menu here is not just limited to milk puddings; they have light bites like Macau pork chop buns too.
