Making the name of Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert 香港盛記甜品 more elaborate on our own, the first thing that come into our mind when we saw the name was: Is this a franchise from Hong Kong, named Sheng Kee, and they sell dessert? Yet we are wrong.
Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert is originated from our neighbourhood country, Singapore. The brand holds 18 outlets in at Singapore, finally expanding into Malaysia with debut store in One Utama Shopping Mall, Petaling Jaya. With the word “dessert” imparted in their name, can’t deny Hong Kong-style dessert takes the limelight here, but at the same time delicious dim sum, noodles and bowl rice are worth trying out too.
Instead of replicating the nostalgic char chan teng atmosphere, Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert goes on modern contemporary design, creating a clean look, lively dining experience for all diners.
We sampled few dim sums, noodles and rice dishes from Sheng Kee’s menu, and have to conclude that their food are of good effort with some hits and misses. Salmon Skin with Pork Floss and Yolky Custard Bun are higly recommended.
Char Siew Snowy Bun (RM6.90)
It looks the same with Michelin Star Tim Ho Wan Signature Baked Bun with BBQ Pork, but definitely taste differently. While tim Ho Wan’s version is crispy at the outside, fluffy soft with sweet gooey char siew; Sheng Kee’s version is covered with more fine, sandy custard, followed by chewy, mochi-like bun stuffed with sweet, chewy meat. Not want to judge with is better, as it goes back to personal liking.
Hong Kong Siew Mai (RM5.90)
Siew mai is decent, with thin dumpling skin enveloping big chunks of meat to result in more chuncky, meatier bites.
Salmon Skin with Pork Floss (RM5.90)
The must-have if you happened to visit Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert. Light and airy crispiness, dressed with meatfloss for a touch of sweetness. Addictive snack that you dont want to share.
Fried HK Carrot Cake (RM5.90)
Sticky soft to the palate, encased by crispy bite with slightly charred edge from its exterior. Better if it can be less oily.
Yolky Custard Bun (RM 6.90)
Best eaten while piping hot so that you can enjoy the aromatic, creamy, and yolky yellowish filling oozing out from pillow soft, fluffy bun at its best.
Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy Rice (RM 13.90)
Main course covers few selections like Oriental Chicken Sausage Rice with Mushroom (RM13.90), HK Braised Beef and Tendon Rice (RM14.90), Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy Rice (RM13.90) and noodles such as HK ZHa Jiang Noodle (RM12.90), HK Wanton Noodle, etc.. Ideal for diners who wants to have ala-carte quick individual meal for lunch or dinner.
SK Signature Combination Noodle (RM 16.90)
Make the noodles a little more springy, it will taste close Hong Kong’s version. The sauce however, bring the wantan noodles back to suit local palate. But since we grow up tucking in wantan mee that are heavily tossed in dark, thick sauces, Sheng Kee’s version falls on mild, less sweet in overall. Healthier. Topped with dumpling brimming with minced meat.
SK Mango Pamelo Sago (RM 8.90)
Best seller in Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert. A combination of smooth mango puree made from fresh Thai Honey Mango with fine shaved iced, bitter sweet pomelo sacs, juicy small mango cubes and pearl sagos to result in refrshing sensation, toning down greasiness from dim sum and main courses. Good!
Yuen Yang Paste (RM 6.90)
A bowl of warm black sesame + almond sweet soup dessert that recalls us on the goodness of traditional Chinese sweet soup which is slowly buried within the modernization of gimmick desserts. Both the almond and sesame dessert is rich, thick, filling. Recommend for sharing.
Our visit to Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert is not too bad, and we personally like their SK Mango Pomelo Sago. Looking forward to indulge in more Sheng Kee’s dessert which all looks tempting from the menu.
