Chung Kee is a crowd tempting desert peddler, famed for it’s concoctions of authentic Cantonese style deserts with some influences from the West. The format is a canteen style, communal table sharing affair with stools as seating and a brightly surroundings. There are multiple branches, but since we were in Sham Shui Po, it made sense to go to the one there.
Shaved ice with mixed beans, matcha ice cream and mango sauce is a combo new to me and to be fair, it wasn’t bad at all. The mango sauce had lashings of tropical flavour, the beans added body and well, who doesn’t like matcha ice cream?
When did I go? Nov 2016
The damage: $50 per head (£5).
The good: It’s fun, it’s cheap and those with a sweet tooth would revel here. You can play around with the combinations or find one which is right for you and why not try something which the locals love?
The bad: Even the shortcomings are forgivable at this price, which there aren’t any!
Would I go again? Why not.
