Macau Sweets.

To end my Macau posts, will be talking about the end to a meal, the sweets, or desserts!

Yee Shun Milk Company, or Leiteria “Eason” as per their signboard, is well-known for their steamed milk puddings in both Macau (where it originated) and Hong Kong. The more well-known branch is the one situated at Senado Square but we spotted this quieter shop along Avenida de Almeida Rebeilo and headed in. The facade is inviting as rows of their chilled milk puddings are displayed in glass chillers.

Double layer steamed milk puddings or 双皮燉鮮奶 is basically a milk and egg white mixture that is steamed until it’s of a pudding consistency with a thin layer on its top. Silky smooth in texture, it tastes slightly eggy with a light milky aftertaste. One can opt to have it served warm or chilled.

I opted for a dollop of red bean topping so that it wouldn’t taste so plain. Even though it was a nice accompaniment, the creamy taste of the milk pudding could hold its own.

Another dessert shop that we visited was Gelatina Mok Yi Kei, a corner shop at the end of Rua Do Cunha in Taipa Village that specializes in ice cream, jelly etc but is most well known for its durian ice cream. There are various flavours and if you’re not sure what to go for, their signature ones should do.

The ice cream was very creamy and rich but started to melt a tad too quickly. Hehe. That’s bird nest jelly in the other cup and I reckon that the ice-cream is the better bet between the 2 variations.

Mok Yi Kei is also well known for their sawdust pudding, or Serradura, a famous Macanese-Portuguese dessert which we didn’t manage to try due to insufficient tummy space. Hehe.

Next to the shop was this park where the old market used to be. Great just sitting there, eating out desserts and soaking in the atmosphere. Macau’s truly picturesque and I’m already looking forward to going back!
