After dinner at Mido, we went down Nathan Road (which by the way, is really long, spanning over a few MRT stations!) in search of dessert. Entered this chinese dessert specialty shop, which seems to have originated from Macau. They serve a variety of hot and cold desserts, from to fu fah (豆腐花), sai mai lo (西米露), liong fun (凉粉) to tong yuen (湯圓) etc.
But their signature dessert is the Portuguese dessert Ja Ja (HKD 14), or Cha Cha which is a sweet Mixed Bean soup dessert. Different types of beans incl. red bean, green beans, kidney bean, chickpeas etc is cooked with yam, sago and other ingredients to come up with this nutritious dessert. Coconut milk and coconut strips (椰絲) are also added for that aromatic rich touch. Quite similar to our Bubur Chacha, but this features beans more than the yams or sweet potatoes.
I opted for something less rich and went for the Cincau with Milk (牛奶凉粉 @ HKD 11). Refreshing and light combination.
For the even healthier option, one can have fresh fruits with the cincau (鲜果凉粉 @ HKD 17).
