We recently had dessert at a local Honeymoon Dessert branch and as usual, we quite enjoyed our time and desserts there. This is a local Hong Kong company that has franchised all over the territory now, specializing in serving up Hong Kong style fruit and pudding based desserts usually mixed with various jellies and yummy bits which serve to form some very interesting and delicious treats. We particularly like their mango based desserts. Serving sizes are quite large so you might want to consider just sharing one dessert between two diners.
Honeymoon Dessert shops are often crawling with locals, a usual testimony to the popularity of the Honeymoon Dessert franchises, particularly amongst the younger crowds. Orders are taken at the table, if you can find one and you are given a long menu list with up to 60+ dessert options. Recently we ordered (1) Grass Jelly & Red Bean Soup with Vanilla Ice Cream (HK$26) which is a nice combination of the red bean and vanilla flavors mixed with the nice texture of the grass jelly. This is more of a local Chinese flavored dessert that might not be enjoyed so much be those with more of a western palate. We enjoy this desset (rating 3 of 5) but its not our favorite on offer at Honeymoon Desserts.
We also ordered (45) Thai Black Glutinous Rice with Mango and Vanilla Sauce (HK$30) which is a local version of the classic Thai mango and sticky rice served with coconut milk. We really enjoyed this dessert, particularly the shaved ice, soaked in vanilla sauce which worked quite well with the glutinous rice and its hints of red bean flavor. The mango served was not the nicest this time around but good enough. Overall, this was a very good dessert (rating 3.5 of 5), which will be ordered again.
Overall, Honeymoon Dessert is a nice option for those that want to sample a local Hong Kong style desserts while visiting the city.
