Shek Mo Fong (Stone Mill) Desserts @ Tin Hau, Hong Kong
I sampled some of the Cashew Nut Cream. It was richly flavoured with the nuttiness of cashews and was not too sweet. This is a Must-Try!
The Chestnut Cream was awful! It was excessively starchy and sweet.
The fruit mix comprised mostly of cubes of mango, papaya and honeydew. The mixture was topped with what seemed like whipping cream (unwhipped) as though it was a tad heavier than milk but not as thick as double cream. I loved the Roselle jelly chunks as they had a delicately floral and tart flavour. A very refreshing fruit salad that is a Must-Try!
This was a really interesting dessert. Black Sesame puree had been mixed with rice flour to make the steamed rice sheets that constitute the Cheong Fun that was used to wrap the Black Glutinous Rice and Mango chunks. I typically do not like Black Glutinous Rice as it is used to make Pulut Hitam (a local dessert that is often a little too heavy and sweet) but found it acceptable in this form as the rice went well with the slight tartness of the mango and the soft, pliable Black Sesame Cheong Fun. This was topped with some coconut milk which added a smoothness and creaminess to the chewy concoction. This is a Must-Try!
