Steamed milk is a dessert served hot or cold with a creamy consistency similar to custard. For this post I visited one of HK’s staples for steamed milk, the Yee Shun Milk Company. I’ve had their steamed milk before and it was delicious. Let’s see if they are still up to par.
We were greeted by the logo, which appears to be a befuddled cow with human eye brows.
Cold Steamed milk and eggs of various flavours.
Average of about 3 USD an item.
Yuen yan which means either mixed or half, I’m not sure. But it consists of milk tea, coffee and condensed milk. Has more of a sharp flavour than normal milk tea, and not as sweet as adding sugar is not needed.
We had the cold steamed milk original flavour which is basically milk, sugar and some mystery ingredients to get it to solidify into a silky cream texture. The other bowl, is at the head of this post was the same thing except with lotus seeds on top.
Syrup for pouring on some type of fewd…
Oh, it’s for the delicious french toast. This tasted like almost any other french toast which is yummy. I think I can actually make a better french toast though. The syrup was really sweet, don’t put too much on there if you try it.
Also, this is one of the Maccanese(from Macau) dishes. They have the traditional french bread with pork chop, macaroni and ham soup and so on.
This is a great little stop if you are overheating from the humid Hong Kong weather. The steamed milk is their specialty and a must try. It tastes different warm also, so stop in when it’s cold also.
