Tea dessert

Last updated by mitsu at 2014/5/9

Hong Kong People are particular over tea in their daily life and it is needful either in quiet tea café or in busy restaurants. Tea dessert is different from the dessert we usually think in that it not only refers to the sweet cakes but also refers to the daily snacks like fresh shrimp dumplings, steamed bum with roast pork, shao-mai with crab spawn, pearl chicken with scallop, salty dumpling, fresh shrimp rolls, steamed turnip cake, rolled beef with mangosteen, dumpling stuffed with sharp fin, fresh shrimp rice roll, fried bum with meat and vegetable, steamed bean curd sheet roll with oyster sauce, steamed chicken feet with black bean sauce, sago paste, mini egg tart, mango pudding and so on. They are various, tasty and cheap.
You can find these delicious tea desserts almost everywhere, including restaurants, shopping centers, busy streets, and Canton food restaurants in residential area. Usually, at the gate of the restaurants have words like “tea fair” ,“morning tea”and“lunch tea”. And the normal serving time for tea dessert is 12:00-14:00.

I visited the Causeway Bay Branch of Paul Lafayet and tried some of their desserts. The cakes are so delicious and it was nice sitting there to eat and relax in the afternoon. The quality of the cakes is great!

Dim sum bonanza. No words can describe the experience. The best of course being to meet some cantonese who can guide you for the choice as there are millions of different dumplings. One of the greatest food tasting I've had in my life!
