好耐冇去跑馬地食飯,難得入到來這個高尚住宅區開餐,順便搵搵有冇好味道甜品。印象中,幾年前還有三四間甜品專門店或雪糕店,估唔到去到今天,只餘下一間正正式式的甜品店,冇得選擇的情況下,就去光顧了這一間在跑馬地歷史最悠久的甜品店「蓮園甜品」。唔知什麼原因,竟然一個客人都沒有。典型街坊中式甜品老店,面積超細,既要安排三四張細枱、又要有一個煮甜品的小廚房、還要擺放一個款式老土的不鏽鋼甜品雪櫃,沒有任何室內設計可言。唯一最大優點,就是這些舊區的地舖通常樓底超高,原意是方便加建一個小閣樓擺放雜物;不過「蓮園甜品」並沒有這樣做,只是安裝了一把大吊扇,空間感即時變得寬敞,在炎炎夏日也會比較通爽涼快。雖然唔清楚這間小店有多少年歷史,但牆壁上卻掛上了一些50年歷史以上、已經發黃的陳年黒白舊照片;又有一些類似古董珍藏的彩色舊照片。莫非老闆是古董收藏家?款式選擇唔算太多,大部份都是傳統中式甜品;芒果班戟及香蕉班戟已經算是最新派的甜品了。其他人都揀了名物蓮茸西米焗布甸($28)。好懷念細個時去酒樓食的推車仔焗西米布甸,焗到焦焦哋嘅皮夠晒香口,西米要落足料,再配以清香的中式蓮蓉,兩種食材產生嘅化學作用完美結合,真係令人回味。但因製作需時,今時今日提供西米蓮蓉焗布甸的酒樓寥寥可數,就算有味道都大不如前,「蓮香樓」的焗西米布甸就最近似。說回這個西米布甸,首先不夠熱烘烘,已經大打折扣。表面不夠焦脆,下面的西式奶黃布甸不夠香不夠滑。西米份量太少,缺少了一份口感。唯一好處是西米中間的中式蓮蓉甜度剛好不太甜腻。唔鍾意食焗布甸,叫了羗汁燉蛋($35)。之前已經問清問楚有沒有熱燉蛋,老闆回答:「整翻熱俾你!」當時只覺得老闆的回答有點奇怪一但也沒有認真在意。當燉蛋送上來的時候,心裏即時打了一個突:「點解完全沒有冒熱?」摸一摸碗邊,竟然一點溫暖都沒有,終於明白老闆所說「翻熱」的意思,只是不夠徹底;到底「蓮園」是否沒有熱燉蛋?算了,就當作食碗「唔冰凍的凍燉蛋」吧!細細看清楚燉蛋表面,唔夠光滑之餘,貼著碗壁位置又起了一點點氣泡,已經預料燉蛋一定唔會滑溜。掏起一湯匙燉蛋,果然十分結實;食落口就更明顯,完全沒有中式燉蛋應該有的嫰滑。味道異常清淡,沒有冰糖的清甜。從燉蛋的窩洞內更加見到密麻麻的起泡,而且一點水份都看不見,足以證明這一碗燉蛋無論是蛋液與水份的比例、筲隔氣泡的徹底度、冰糖水的份量、以致燉蛋的時間控制,完全沒有一點合乎標準,只可以用六個字總結:「徹底失敗,難食!」平時甚少特登去食中式糖水,所以價錢算唔算貴真的不太清楚,只知道下一次應該唔會再幫襯。話說回來,為什麼跑馬地的其他中日式甜品店相繼結業,只剩下這一間?真的不能理解!? continue reading

甜品這個東西, 我真係識條鐵 。。。一碗布甸就可以開一間店, 撐起一頭家 ,一個字講完 。。勁蓮園的 蓮蓉西米 焗布甸, 真的是遠近馳名 ,聽聞 有不少 名人明星, 也會特登 駛駕車 來買外賣。 有時也會見到日本遊客, 拿著旅遊書 ,慕名而來光顧。蓮蓉不是太甜, 加了西米焗 ,口感軟綿綿帶點煙韌 ,香香的, 甜甜的 ,甚為好味。店子已經屹立在跑馬地 好多十年了。。。 仍然能夠憑獨步單方 經營下去 ,一定有它過人之處, 應該可以寫成 一個 made in hong kong 的 MBA case study。 continue reading

Tried this place a few years ago and didn't quite like it back then. Earlier this week some Thai friends were in town and we just wandered into this place since there aren't that many other choices in the area when it comes to dessert. The double boiled milk pudding ( 燉奶 ) appeared to be made from milk powder, while the sesame and coconut dessert ( 芝麻椰汁糕 ) tasted like a mix of chemical sesame powder and artificially flavoured coconut milk. This was very disappointing and definitely not worth the premium price that they were charging. We politely asked the waiter to take a photo for us and our request got ignored as the guy said he was busy ( even though at one point we were the only guests in this small place ). This establishment really seems to take pride in being rude to its customers, and at the same time the desserts seriously taste horrible with strong hints of artificial flavourings. I think it might have been a place with some fame in the past but with the current quality and attitude I'm just not sure how they could possibly maintain their brand equity going forward. continue reading

上次食過蓮園午飯,今次食完晚飯過嚟試下佢地D甜品。確實唔錯,甜品質素高過鹹食。總共試左四款甜品:雙皮奶,好滑,唔太甜,啱啱好。奶味重,食得我好滋味個 friend 嗌嘅,唔記得左叫乜,好似係花旗蔘敦 something。雖然我唔記得,但係我其實最鍾意呢個,好正氣,D花旗蔘好香,好濃,好似好補咁呢個正常,木瓜雪耳,好潤戲肉嚟嘞!蓮蓉西米焗布甸,熱辣辣,好味道。D蓮蓉有少少流心,加埋D西米 custard ,真係甜入心頭!我覺得佢地甜品比起粥品小廚出色,會再幫趁! continue reading

there are 2 shops, both a block from each other. one serves congee and wonton noodle, and the other does dessert. the foods of both are mediocre at best. the service is always a surprise. unfortunately, it is of the unpleasant kind, so be prepared to be yelled at. the only thing it has going for them is that they stay open til late, often times, it's the only choice. continue reading
