Honeymoon Dessert at Western Market, Sheung Wan

Hong Kong is a dessert heaven. Even if you do not have a sweet tooth, like yours truly, it is hard not to be impressed by the array of desserts available here. Honeymoon Dessert is arguably the most famous homegrown brand of a chain of dessert house.

With one outlet located right below my building at Western Market, who am I to say no to the lure of all the things sweet thing which is just the right indulgence to pamper myself after a long hard week?

Much has been said about the dessert. Just take it from someone who has seen so many Singaporean friends making a beeline for these sweet stuff; they are good. And delicious. And absolutely a diet-buster.

But with stuff this good, you ought to make an exception. I’ll let the photos do the talking.

Grass jelly in vanilla sauce. The least diet-busting dessert which I enjoy.

Mango pomelo & sago sweet soup, more commonly known as “xei mei lou”. By far the most popular dessert among all my Singapore friends, though I myself prefer…

… this one! Grass jelly & sliced strawberries in vanilla sauce with green tea and durian ice creams. Absolutely delicious, though one of the priciest among all dessert, but oh so worth it (including the extra minutes I needed to put in on my treadmill).

Delights at Honeymoon Desserts

A popular type of dessert in Honeymoon which makes it famous is of the durian variety. These are durian puffs; you can also order all sorts of imaginable combination of durian with other things. One word of warning: you will feel absolutely stuffed after just one portion, and your breathe will smell for hours afterwards.

And according to some folklore you cannot consume beer after eating durian. Between the two, I choose the lesser of two evils, of course…

… and I do mean the beer!

P.S.: And to my Singapore friends, the real thing in HK cannot be compared to the knockoffs lesser alternatives you can find at Vivocity. Hop on over to try these babies yourself. You won’t regret it!
