Originally from Macau, the Yee Shun Milk Company is famous for its milk-based dishes, more specifically, its steamed milk puddings.
With three locations in Hong Kong- Causeway Bay, Jordan and Yau Ma Tei, the establishment also offers savouries such as instant noodles with beef, scrambled egg sandwiches and macaroni with soup- nothing remarkable, just the usual simple comfort foods commonly found in Hong Kong style diners, or cha chaan teng.
But you'd be wasting your time and money coming here if you wanted just savoury- the desserts are the real star of the show.
With flavours ranging from ginger, egg, mango and chocolate to plain, customers at Yee Shun are spoilt for choice when it comes to their steamed milk.
Don't expect great service here- as with many busy old-school establishments in Hong Kong it is terse and rushed. Come here to experience the smooth and creamy taste of the milk pudding, which you can order hot or cold.
We ordered the hot original flavoured milk pudding, and the simple, comforting richness really hit the spot.
The distinctive 'skin' on top is edible and adds an interesting textural contrast to the soft, custard-like consistency of the pudding, which is a bit liquid, kind of like the inside of a creme brulee.
If your taste in dessert leans toward simple, comforting and creamy, then Yee Shun Milk Company is the place to go.
