The dessert choices in Yuen Long are really endless and my reviews for them are piling up! This chain I've tried several times but never the one in Yuen Long. I usually order more fruity desserts but this time we chose something different. I'm not sure whether it was this which affected my perceived quality of food, but there are definitely better choices in Yuen Long.
We chose this dessert as I am a fan of 黑糖 and its sweetness! It looked and sounded quite interesting. It consists of three parts: a tofu pudding, a shot of 黑糖 syrup and a scoop of tofu ice-cream. It looked quite nice, but the 黑糖 was way too hot to hold and pour over the pudding. We had to wait a while until it was cold, which is sort of impractical. I guess they expected us to use their small spoon to spoon the syrup onto the pudding, but the spoon wasn't small enough to reach the bottom of the glass. I liked how the 黑糖 was hot because it provided an interesting contrast in temperature with the others. However, although the syrup was sweet and rich, I thought it wasn't a very good combination with the tofu flavour. The tofu pudding itself was okay - smooth, not too sweet and very beany. But together with the 黑糖, it just tasted strange. Would not order it again.
This was quite disappointing too. The 芝麻糊 itself wasn't rich enough and it tasted a little watered-down. Wasn't as thick and intense as I wanted it. I've had much better ones elsewhere. The 豆腐花 was also average, didn't really taste anything and it wasn't particularly smooth. Together, this dessert was tasteless and not very enjoyable. Boo!
This was probably the best part of the meal, although nothing special. The 雞翼尖 was hot enough, flavourful as I think they were marinated/cooked for a long time. The portion was a bit small for its price compared what other people were serving but the taste was okay. Not as good as B jai's though!
The air-conditioning of this place was crazy cold so we chose to sit outside, which was fine. The place is still quite new so everything was quite clean. The service was average, nothing special but nothing to complain about either. Still, the food isn't good enough for me to come again
. What is worth commenting on is their reusing - very environmentally friendly! They reuse the food card by crossing out the order once someone's paid for it. I applaud them for that!
