Hui Lau Shan 許留山 is possibly Hong Kong’s most visible dessert store, known for their ‘kwai ling ko’ and mango treats.
This used to be the first thing I eat in Hong Kong for several of my trips (because it was located at the airport), especially the cold Mango Sago Pomelo, with coconut milk topped with a big scoop of ice cream.
Hui Lau Shan has made its return back to Singapore, located at the basement of Chinatown Point (near Taikoo Lane Hotpot), and Serangoon NEX.
The millennials may not remember that the brand was once at Orchard Road, located at International Building (was it 2009 or something?)
However, the lack of demand, high pricing and disparity with the Hong Kong standard caused it to make a rather quick exit.
Some background: Hui Lau Shan is a dessert specialist founded in Hong Kong since 1960s, known to sell Chinese herbal tea.
After they created the trendy Mango Sago, it became a popular dessert in Hong Kong, and continues to remain as its most iconic item.
The brand is best known for its Mango series made from Carabao Mangoes, with a huge range of mango puddings, mango sago, mango jellies, mango glutinous balls and drinks.
The drinks come in layers of coconut, hashima jelly aloe, aloe vera, red bean, ice cream or fruit puree depending on your selection.
Colourful, delectable and will send thrills as you enjoy a drink with fresh fruit bits of mango and strawberry.
But they have been known to be pricey, and there is much competition from similar mango dessert stores.
There are 7 types of Mango desserts available in Singapore, including Mango Triple Delight ($5.90), Mango Pop Pop ($5.90), Mango Crystal Jelly ($5.35), Sago Duet ($6.95), Mango Coconut Ribbon ($5.90) and Mango Chewy Ball ($6.95).
The Mango Sago ($5.35) though may seem to be slightly pricier, is generous with portions, coming with fresh mango chunks, chilled mango puree and soft sago. Slightly sweeter than the average brand here, but for those who miss that sweet taste of Hong Kong.

?? Hui Lau Shan 許留山 ?? is returning to Singapore in 2020! Opening in Jan, the dessert shop is close to 【Taikoo Lane Hotpot 太古里火锅】, both are located at Chinatown Point Basement 1.
Why not enjoy hotpot at Taikoo Lane and then get desserts at Hui Lau Shan ??!
If they’re still selling at such high price like last time, they will exit again.
