Despite Singaporeans’ love for desserts, we actually don’t get that many Hong Kong style dessert shops around.

The most prominent and authentic ones are probably Ah Chew Desserts, Mei Heong Yuen Dessert, Ji De Chi, and Dessert First.

When I learnt about Jin Yu Man Tang Dessert Shop 金玉满堂甜品 at East Coast, I think it has the potential to be a hit with families.

Perhaps its location, lack of marketing and visibility cause it to be off-the-radar, but this should pick up really soon.

The dessert shop does remind of Ah Chew Desserts in a certain way, and I do hope they can one day extend hours later to cater to the night owls.

Some of its specialties include the Ginger Milk Pudding 姜撞奶 ($4.00), Shun De Double Layer Milk 顺德双皮奶 ($3.60), Peach Gum with Milk 桃胶鲜牛奶 ($4.50), Mango with Mini Rice Ball 芒果小丸子 ($5.00), and Deep Fried Milk 炸牛奶 ($5.50).

The Ginger Milk Pudding ($4.00) is probably their hero product, made on the spot only after ordering.

First you get a bowl of ginger mixture, after which milk would be poured into it. Wait for about 4 minutes or so, then the milk would turn into smooth-wobbly pudding.

Just like how it is traditionally done. Note that no takeaways will be available for this due to the steps needed to make it properly.

The signature Shun De Double Layer Milk ($3.60) originated from Shunde in Foshan China. You can also choose other toppings such as red bean, mango, lotus seeds, walnut, almond, and papaya.

The milk pudding was incredibly soft, and melt-in-your-mouth.

It does remind me of Hong Kong’s Yee Shun Milk Company, except that this may in fact be even softer.

It is fair enough to say that Mango Sago Pomelo ($5.00) aka ”Yang Zhi Gan Lu” is one of Singapore’s favourite Chinese-style dessert.

Their version came with grapefruit pulp, which provides that slightly-bitter and tart taste which complemented the sweet, fresh mangoes.

I also enjoyed that the desserts here, are generally not too sweet.

The next time I come, I am likely to try the Deep-Fried Milk ($5.50) which requires quite an extensive making process.

A special milk mixture has to be harden, wrapped up, then deep fried carefully upon ordering.

You would get that crunchy feeling on the outside, and soft-melty inside.
