Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert Review: Sweetest Cafe in Town
Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert | 香港盛記甜品 established in 2010 and had a chain of dessert shops at various locations in Singapore. It also has branches overseas in Malaysia, Indonesia and Malaysia. My three friends and I decided to have our desserts on the first floor of IMM Building in Sheng Kee Dessert after a hearty dinner.
The dessert presentation on the menu was very attractive and looked appetising. We wanted to try as many desserts as our stomach could fill. I dislike desserts that were overly sweet. A skilful Dim Sum chef should know how to control the amount of sugar added into the dessert. Sheng Kee Dessert is capable in this aspect and won huge praises from us.
The Handmade Mushroom Pau | 手工蘑菇包 (S$3.30) in a plate of two were creatively made and looked very cute. The bun was moulded to look like a mushroom, and well, mushrooms were the main filling. They were fundamentally not sweet at all. That was also what I like about it. The taste was unique as I have never experienced a mushroom bun before, let alone a pretty one.
Mini Yolky Custard Bun | 香滑流沙包 (S$2.90), a basket of three pieces was another sweet delight with a mixture of savoury fillings of Salted Egg Yolk and Sweet Custard. What a perfect combination! One has to be careful when handling and eating them. Do not eat when it is too hot. Do not split it into two as the custard will leak like molten lava. As we divide the bun into two, the filling flowed all over the plate and created a messy sight.
I insisted on ordering the Mango Glutinous Roll | 芒果糕劵 (S$7.50) which came in four pieces as I love mango dessert. Mangoes are usually sweet, but with the combination of the glutinous roll, the sugary kick mellowed. The fragrant mango flavour aftertaste lingered in the mouth from the dripping mango cream. Yummy!
At Sheng Kee Dessert, the jelly series were virtually eye candy. We ordered all the three varieties that were available on the menu. Osmanthus Jelly | 桂花糕 (S$3.90) used dried osmanthus flowers which gave a mild flavour. It is not easy to distinguish the fragrant from eating them. In some other places not in Sheng Kee where I have tried the same type of Osmanthus Jelly, the taste very very mild to bland too.
Just to add a little bit more information about the Osmanthus flowers. They have medicinal properties like antioxidant activities which help to promote beautiful skin. When coupled with the natural goodness of wolfberries, it is a healthy dessert to relish. Therefore, eat more of it!
Who can resist the temptation of Mango Combination Series | 辎肩香恽阚语 and Signature Combination Series | 辎肩三鲐秦 just by looking at them without ordering? They made one drool by just casting a glance. It is ideal for those who want to try three different types of desserts for the price of S$7.50 per plate.
Green Lime with Plum Juice | 青柠酸梅 (S$3.90) was the ideal drink to select on the drink menu. It is a drink blended with the appropriate level of sweetness and sourness. We knew it, so the three of us ordered this drink from the menu.
Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert in IMM Building undoubtedly has one of the best desserts around with a high standard of service at Sheng Kee, IMM. The staffs were as sweet as the dessert, making sure that we enjoy the desserts as much as they served. I will return as a satisfied customer as, over the years, I have trusted Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert to have the best dessert in Singapore whenever I think where to go for the best dessert cafe in Singapore.
