Mango Paradise in Hong Kong!!02 November, 2010 by Kazesuki
A few days spent in Hong Kong, a city with lots of stalls selling goodies in the streets, can really make your tummy grow rounder. I happened to drop by Hong Kong for a few days for my graduation. A trip down to the streets with a few hungry friends made it even more awesome.
First stop! Hui Lao Shan (read from right to left) mango desserts! These shops selling mango goodies are everywhere. The “Starbucks” of Hong Kong! They offer a wide variety of delicious mango desserts, hot or cold, with rice balls, mango juice, bird nest, fruits, ice cream and whatever goes with mango! They do sell some snacks like curry chicken, carrot cake in XO, braised chicken wings for the picking. My last trip to Hong Kong made me visit this franchise at least once every day.
This was the one with mango + rice balls + mango ice cream in mango juice. They use fresh mango for the juice! Now you know why I kept eating this for days.
If you are the one that likes to try a bit of everything, the mango platter is a must try! Before you is an array of mango fruit, mango mochi, mango juice, rice ball, mango ice cream, mango puree and coconut jelly =)
Another alternative would be this combination of mango ice cream with pomelo and sago complemented with fresh fruits.
So, if you are craving for something sweet, and got kinda sick of all the chocolate cakes and sugar stuff, do give this a try. There are LOTS of branches around the streets. Personally, i have seen 3 same shops along a street junction, so finding them wouldn’t be that hard unless you are swarmed by the masses.Planning your holiday? We recommend visiting Agoda for a full list of hotels with early bird specials.
Just walking along taking a few photos here and there. Looking for that special something. Or perhaps wandering around appreciating the life around me.
