Chocolate Steamed Milk Dessert from Yee Shun Milk Company


If you walked past these...


These...


...and these...
Stop.
Take a moment, drool for a bit...
Get in.


...and enjoy.

The problem with dessert specific places is...if I walked past them before lunch/dinner, I'd say to myself "I'm gonna have that later after my meal". Normally, it wouldn't realize, as I'd stuff myself silly during my meal or had dessert with my meal and won't have any space left for anything.

This time, I was having none of it.
I promised myself that I would take a better control of myself at lunch, and would leave some space for one of these babies.
Determination, self control...
...are clearly things I was not born with.

Again, I couldn't help but devour everything on my plate and stuffed myself to my eyeballs.

Never eat something you love when you're stuffed, or you might lose your love. (Wat???)
I didn't want to NOT enjoy my dessert.
So, I went for an intense round of shopping, and went back to the shop when I had enough space for it (like within one hour haha ^_*)


My favorite from Yee Shun is this Chocolate Steamed Milk Egg Dessert.
I tried doing
my version at home.
While mine was really chocolatey, I failed to achieve the same texture of Yee Shun's one. Silky, slippery, satiny smooth, sweet, creamy and chocolatey.
I bet there's a little corn starch in there somewhere.
I wonder why it's only served cold.
Anyone knows?

This is Yee Shun on openrice.

Is that chocolate steamed milk pudding new in Yee Shun? I've only tried their steamed double skin milk pudding and steamed ginger milk pudding before.

Yummy! Do you think it's because milk spoils faster at hot temperature?

I've not had chocolate steamed milk before but I do like HK style dessert of steamed milk with a bit of ginger. Great clicks.

Looks so good! You really like chocolate desserts :). Need to try this in Hong Kong next time.

I think they might make it thicker and smoother by adding cream or milk powder, but since I've never tried adding them I am not sure. When I make these desserts at home, they don't taste as rich or creamy as at restaurants so that is why I think cream or milk powder is added.

Mochachocolata Rita said...

cream/milk powder, yes possibly. i guess i have to keep trying to achieve the perfect texture ;)
