One of the latest trend I heard my Penang friend talking about in our Watsapp chatroom is Hui Lau Shan which is one of a famous Hong Kong Desert had finally landed in Penang, being located inside Gurney Plaza which is one of the prime spot in Penang to start off with.  Whenvever I travel to in Hong Kong last time, I will make myself not to miss out this great desert. First stop after landed is Hui Lau Shan and finally make its mark into the island.

Hui Lau Shan (1)

Before Penang, it hit KL shore where this franchise open its very first outlet in 1-Utama and we instantly went to try out. (click here). In Penang its much different compare to the KL one’s as the outlet is bigger, more spacious and there is a line we have to queue which is longer than KL.

Hui Lau Shan (2)

Hui Lau Shan in Penang just open its door for less than a month and it had been well received by the locals.

Hui Lau Shan (3)

These are the few that I will always order or the recommended. . . Fresh Mango Mochi @ RM 4.90 for 3 pieces

Hui Lau Shan (4)

Mango with Pamelo

Hui Lau Shan (5)

Mango Icey Sweetie Ball @ RM 11.90

Apparently, I find that Penang version is must tasty than the ones in KL, in terms of mango and texture of it. Wonder is it the same owner? For more other flavours click here

If you have not tried this superb Mango desert, do drop by . .Recommended!

Over quite sometime there are many Hong Kong dessert that open and close down to the extend some of it are very good ones and I often wonder how come no one took this franchise Hoi Lau Shan that serve superb mango dessert in many version. Guess what?!! Finally one of the best Hong Kong dessert Hoi Lau Shan had put a step in Malaysia and 1-Utama being their first outlet.

I am very sure many of you that travel to Hong Kong will be familiar with this brand as its nearly available every where, something like our bubble tea Taiwan version. I rarely miss this dessert as everytime I went to Hong Kong upon arrival at the air port I would wallop 2-3 cups of these dessert before I take my public transportation. If you are a dessert lover then you would not want to miss it~

Hoi Lau San (1)

Now most Malaysians need not travel to Hong Kong to take this dessert anymore as it available here now, located at first floor in front of Isetan at 1-Utama Old Wing. Its just a few days old and well, I just cant resist the temptation and faster came here to satisfy my crave hoping that what is serve here would be something similar to the ones in Hong Kong. Besides that, if I remember correctly those branches in Hong Kong do not have the word healthy dessert…hmmm , I guess here they serve healthy ones?

As I was sitting and happily place my order, many of passerby checking out their menu and many are skeptical on their dessert. .

Hoi Lau San (2)

Standing there and stare blankly then walk away.

Hoi Lau San (3)

Its more like a kiosk style that smack right in the middle of the new old wing and its pretty hard for you to miss this huge orange sign board.

Hoi Lau San (4)

Menu are the same compare to the ones in Hong Kong as I have just return there 2 months ago . .

Hoi Lau San (5)

As I browse thru the menu one thing that caught my attention so hard is the pricing here, I would that that it cost a bomb to order and didnt know that it is so cheap here. A simple bowl of these dessert cost from RM9.90 onwards? OMG! In Hong Kong the ones that I usually order cost about HKD 48 = RM 24 per bowl here and I can say its at least 55% cheaper here!!!

Hoi Lau San (6)

Staring at the menu, I happily ordered all my favourites and to my disappointment one of my favorite which is with pamelo is out of stock as according to their waiter, he apologize as they are just a few days old and will restock very soon.

Hoi Lau San (6.3)

Mango Juice & Mango Cube – Mango Jelly @ RM 7.90. I usually had 2 cups of these that filled with thick freshly blend mango, top with mango cubes and jelly at the bottom, that makes me slurppp non stop of this. Surprisingly, the taste is like 80% similiar just that its not so sweet compare to the ones in Hong Kong.

Hoi Lau San (7)

Mango Icey Sweetie Ball @ RM 11.90 with freshly blend mango puree, mango cubes and glutinous ball. As near to Hong Kong version itself the glutinous ball is near to pretty hard not like our Malaysian version which is soft and chewy. Some of you might not like it.

Hoi Lau San (8)

One of the thing that you must not miss is this Fresh Mango Mochi @ RM 4.90 for 3 pieces

Hoi Lau San (9.0)

Skin over here is a bit thick yet its still soft that is made from mango and its shove with one huge chunk of mango cubes inside and outer layer is rube with coconut. One of my favourite and for RM4.90 I what 9 of these. Satisfying!

Hoi Lau San (11)

Triple Mango Delight @ RM 9.90

Hoi Lau San (12)

Filled with mango Ice cream, mango cubes, and a layer of mango pudding. The pudding tasted a bit artificial but well, I still enjoy my dessert.

If I get to order my Mango with Pamelo, it would be a perfect order yet nevertheless it is indeed satisfying for the price we are paying.

Upon what I eat today is my recommended list and if you like try others it should be fine, but not too miss these few as I mention to start off with . .

Last round in Hong Kong me and Ken (foodpoi.com) both of us whack this dessert with similiar amount cost us about RM120 which is near whopping HKD 250 just for these dessert itself and now for tonight I pay about RM50 for this whole package! Even my malay friends that went to Hong Kong they enjoy these dessert very much and ta pau mochi back for their parents!

Definately I am coming for more with its price being offered here. Taste is 80% similiar to the ones in Hong Kong as I believe the mango is less sweet and aromatic compare to the ones in Hong Kong. Well, with the price I am paying certainly I have no complain and just to enjoy.

One of the highly recommended Hong Kong dessert now from me!

Remark: After went to this outlet a few times, find that their quality is like roller coaster, sometimes its superb, sometimes it far below par because of the mango quality they have for the day. Its rather dissapointing compare to the first day that I had it. On htis branch, do not put so much high hope yet something to look for. . .

*Updates – 2nd jan 2014 : officially their dessert quality drop from bad to worst

In Kl, we have one of the most famous Taiwanese Desert which is Called Snowflakes, as when I visited Taiwan 2 years ago, I was a bit surprise to see that actually their concept is very similiar to Meet Fresh Taiwan (click here). In Taiwan, Meet Fresh is consider one of the famous brand for this desert.

So my dad been telling me about this place he want to try out. Previously he wanted to try out the Yea Japanese BBQ Steamboat Buffet located at Penang Times Square so brought him there. This round is this Taiwanese Desert so mark and done.

Meetfresh (1)

Now is the era of Taiwanese Desert that is bubbling every where in Penang and KL state that have attracted more than 20 brands and the latest arrive in Penang and KL shore is this Taiwan Famous desert Meet Fresh. In Taiwan itself they have more than 100 outlets around Taiwan and their history is in their wall which is pretty impressive.

The orignal 2 masters Mr. and Mrs.Fu originated from Central Taiwan believe that cooking desert in traditional way still the best way to preserve traditional taste of it. It is made daily by handmade of those taro balls and afew other ingredients to ensure customer enjoy freshness of it. More of it (click here)

As for this round, Meet Fresh is own by Wong Kok Group and if you ever want to consider this franchise, they are the best people to go after.

Meetfresh (2)

Like any other Taiwanese desert, after place your order, you will be given this alert item as while they are preparing the desert and once it is ready, it will beep and vibrate. Then only you head to the counter to pick up your desert.

Meetfresh (4)

As usual, will try out their signature or original taste as Meet Fresh Signature Herb Jelly  with its herbs ice base which is pretty solid in tastes and Taro balls is chewy towards hard side abit and herbs jelly is just nice. @ RM 6.90

Meetfresh (5)

Little Taro Balls in White  Gourd Tea @ RM 5.90

On the menu, I see the name of this drink is very unique and decided to give it a try, with top layer cover with foamy cream and stir it along it had become creamy white and filled little taro balls, its a bit on the sweet side and nothing to shout about.

Meetfresh (6)

On the other side, Soya is always one of my favorite. So to compare what’s the difference of it on Double Joy Soy bean with others as it just lack of extra [email protected] RM 8.90

Still Snowflakes (click  here) stands out more and in Penang, okay lah..if you are craving for nice Taiwanese deserts.

For me, I would say I am a big fan of bubble tea. Still miss the time when I was studying in Melbourne and take bus back to my house will pass by this bubble tea located at Box Hill Train Station which will definitely walk pass by there. Me and my housemate got addicted till we had 4-5 cups a week till we know most of the people working in there and get to have special mix combination that not in the menu. Chatime had landed in Malaysia.

After so long, to get a very nice bubble tea in KL is very hard, not until recently I heard one of my friend mention that one of our friend opening a famous Bubble Tea from Taiwan very soon and asking me to watch out. It was not till I heard they are the master owner of this very famous brand for Malaysia market Chatime which located at hottest shopping location area, Level 4, Pavilion (in front of True Fitness). Not to mention I have recently came back from Taiwan and only realise that actual bubble tea is so much different compare to our local market that they have in the mall or pasar malam. They acutally have a very original taste of tea of the mixture rather than most of them are using powder.

chattime (4)

Chatime is quite a well know brand which spread its wings with more than 300 outlets across the globe. One of the drinks to look for is that they do not really use powder but nicely brew tea, mix and match of alot of flavours. Upon ordering we are able to choose less sugar or more sugar just like it is as I experience in Taiwan.

chattime (3)

They have long list of drinks available but this are so far their signature or recommended drink.

chattime (2)

chattime (5)

For me the usual way to test the best out of the drink is always go for their original drink ‘Original Milk Tea with Pearls’. Aromatic of tea flavor and milk that doesn’t not taste too condense milky along with the ngam ngam mixed pearl is just good, would just easily beat any of the stalls out there.  RM5.90 – highly recommended

chattime (6)

Another recommendation by one of the staff is ‘Japanese Match Red Bean Smoothie’. If you are looking something cold, then this is an good option, strong green tea flavor that combines well with the red bean that make it solid in taste, and I just forgot to add pearl, it would have been more perfect. RM5.90

So far I like both Snowflakes and Chatime Bubble tea range, something that I would definitely want to have when I go to Pavilion.

Recently I went to Pyramid and meet up with Masako as she said she wanted to get a camera DSLR too and want me to follow her along. As on that morning went for food hunting at Klang and it was on the way so meet her up. After checking out a dummy camera at SenQ(if not mistaken) then I walk out and saw this shop, at first I thought the shop was selling refregirator but then I saw people walking out with something on their hand that can eat. So I walk over and kaypo abit only realise that it was a yougurt desert shop then only notice their brand name.

Never heard of the name before but never care and wanted to try, and after google it a bit and found out that this yogurt desert is from USA and a franchise around the world. Sunway Pyramid being their very first outlet and it will expand quite fast as this Franchise was recently purchase by NAZA group.

When I look back at this picture, I still think that from this side view witout looking at the counter it still look like a place selling refregirator..kekek
First step you will take a cup from the side area, ranging from small to big and then you will head to these machines to pump out your favourite choice of yogurt flavor or you can mix around. It feels like you are working inside the MacD kiosk ice cream counter.

7 flavours are available at the moment.

Masako pump out 3 flavours, Chocolate, Lychee and Original.
I love 3 of the flavours, very flavourful with its own taste and the yogurt is very soft and very strong yogurt taste which I like it and did not overpower the flavors of it. It will be only my one time experience as it will dig up a hole in your pocket.
Then you head to this very next counter for……………..

Choose and add in your topings.

You can end up with these.

and you definately must guess how much is this cup of yogurt as Masako as us to guess it too. To my shoking price it cost RM20. For such a cup it will be the most expensive ice cream yogurt I ever eaten. How it is calculated as below:
10g for RM0.53

With that kind of price this are the size of the cup which is the medium cup.
and its not full too and both of them said that, luckily it was not me that took the ice cream. They really understand me well. If for me I will pull the ice creal till very high and add on alot of toppings as with my understanding how much will it cost only la.
Then we saw a malay family came in with 2 kids, 2 of their wife’s went to pull the ice cream too and they took a large cup each. They have the same thought like me, pulling it alot and high then top up with alot of toppings and then reach the cashier. 3 of us were very curious about the pricing and keep peeking on it and we start guessing, the same goes to the chinese couple sitting next to us, peeking at it too…
Their charges per cup was around RM39, they got shock on the pricing and ask their husband for extra money. 2 cups of frozen yougurt RM78… I believe its a good marketing strategy which is you cannot refund back the ice cream to them cuz you made it yourself and you have to pay for what you have done.
With their charges like that, I have to say that, they will be the most expensive yogurt desert that is even more expensive than Haegan Das and Baskin.
It sure taste good, but will return back when they change their price.
