we took a stroll along the streets at tsimshatsui & came upon lucky dessert 发记甜品 at 2 prat street, tsimshatsui.
the place was crowded, but we were lucky we got a table for 4pax immediately.
some auspicious couplets & framed well wishes??
afterwards a queue gathered outside, i think about 9.30pm -ish…
the best dessert was the mango ice shavings (top photo).
still it was pretty good, and also included mochi & red beans etc.
for me, my mango sago 杨枝甘露 (above photo) was the next best. it was competent, mango was flavourful & good combination of fine ice chips, pomelo & sago, nice & refreshing.
the black sesame paste黑芝麻糊 was watery, dilute, and not smooth, even though they said 现磨 meaning freshly ground…i would say below average..
red bean soup 红豆汤 was pretty good. my friend liked it. it came with 陈皮，dried orange peel, that added the special flavour.
the shop seemed very popular but the dessert were really so so.
the sago dish was very poor.
so the saving grace was the ice shavings, which is not much of a hong kong traditional dessert but maybe that is what’s good here.
i cannot remember the prices, but the 5 dessert probably added up to about HK$180.
