Oh Yee Shun Steamed Ginger Milk, how many ways do I love thee? I discovered your shop, the Yee Shun Milk Company, while wandering around Causeway Bay.
I berate myself because I thought you were naught but a tourist trap, simply from the Japanese words on the sign.
Yet it was love at first sight when I spied the little bowls of ginger steamed milk awaiting the hungry hordes.
I plucked up my courage, made it past the curt staff, timidly sat at my designated seat across from a similarly determined local, and ordered my silken bowl of ginger goodness. Oh my, the sinus-clearing sharpness of ginger, the impossibly smooth curd sweetened just right.
I just had to drag my friends here the next day for more of my favourite Hong Kong dessert. Sadly, there’s no substitute in Singapore. I tried a version in Chinatown that disappointed so much I’ll just have to wait for my next visit to Hong Kong.
