Ever heard of steamed milk? Well, yeah – every coffee house serves this! But in Hong Kong, it means an entirely different thing. I’ve read about this steamed milk dessert on the internet for years, but I never got to try it, ever. I was told by a friend, Talia – to look for Yee Shun Milk Company in Causeway Bay. Since, I don’t go to CWB that much, we just breezed through and walked by this place. At least, I knew where it was at. So finally during the recent trip – we got the chance to try it! I didn’t know what to expect. The place is small, but it’s always full of people. We decided to go after one of our dinners. We went inside with no clue what to order, but then it was recommended that we get the Steamed Milk in Two Filn (I think they meant film – for whatever reason, I had no idea). The steamed milk was served almost immediately – and this is how it looked like:
This is the Steamed Milk.
It was very good, I loved the silky texture and since I LOVE milk, I loved every single bite! The sweetness was just right. It’s a very very simple dessert – my first impression was *this is it?* Hahaha!! Yes, I judged it immediately. I remembered my friend Talia mentioning that she had a second serving. I honestly wondered, why? But when I tasted it – I immediately knew. As Talia would say *walang share share!*. She was absolutely, right! It was really yummy. It’s not the best – but for the humble milk, sugar and egg whites – this was really really good!
My Panget had this Steamed Milk with Coffee
Well, it was good, but not as good as the ordinary Steamed Milk. He liked mine better, so I had to share (as usual!) I felt that this was made to answer the variety, but for me, it wasn’t at par. The texture though, was the same – silky. Maybe because it was coffee that I didn’t like it as much?
If you happen to be in Causeway Bay – try this for a change. It’s not just a dessert place, they also offer breakfast items like french toast and more. They open at 11am and closes at 12midnight. The staff, well the main staff knows how to speak English and they also have an English menu – I asked for this because I don’t like to stress myself in reading a Chinese menu (when they have an English one, hahaha!!)
The next day, we saw that there was a long line to be seated. I just ordered for take away and it was much faster! hahaha.. 🙂 Panget wanted the steamed milk with some red bean toppings. He said that it was better than the coffee one.
Yee Shun Milk Company is located along Lockhard Road in Causeway Bay, it’s the street of Sogo’s back entrance.
