Ngor Kee 鹅記渣咋, Hong Kong.

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).

  1. i thought macau was famous for their “dan lai” aka steamed milk

    oh god another place for reference for my trip to HK in May!

    epicuriousgirl says: I thought so too! But well, apparently this Ja Ja dessert is quite popular with the Hongkies.

    going in May? Hope it’s not hot by then!

    this is good! funny we can find dessert outlets lining the streets of HK, while in Msia only a handful scattered in the Klang Valley. ….

    epicuriousgirl says: haha, maybe m’sians haven’t been properly introduced to the wonders of the “tong sui” and “tim ban” world😛

    the Cincau with Milk so attractive, do their cincau same taste with ours?😛 Sorry, did I ask silly question?

    epicuriousgirl says: yes, i believe it tastes rather similar.🙂

  4. i find open rice quite useful, esp the ‘bill board’ for restaurants around hk n macau haha

    epicuriousgirl says: yeah, too bad i only found the website after my trip😛

    Even now.. on a cold night.. I imagine having the cincau milk.. wash down my throat.. ah.. what a refreshing feeling!

    epicuriousgirl says: yeah, and the milk somehow balances the sweetness of the cincau.

    More more! Would keep notes about these places when I’m going in Jan next year (so far away….)

    epicuriousgirl says: ah, it’ll be here before you know it. i also pre-booked my HK trip nearly a year in advance🙂

  7. im scared of cincau with milk..! I actually find it heavy.. hehe.. maybe i am bad with dairy products

    epicuriousgirl says: then the cincau with fresh fruits would definitely be your choice? i like the “michael jackson” feel to cincau with milk😛
