The Famous Hong Kong Mango Dessert at Hui Lau Shan许留山 Gurney Plaza

This article link from Penang Gurney Plaza Dining Guide

I believe everyone been waiting a long time for this, the Hong Kong famous dessert shop Hui Lau Shan 许留山. When we travel to Hong Kong two years back we eat twice there and we just love their dessert. After few years it now finally open it first ever shop in Gurney Plaza, Penang.

Hui Lau Shan 许留山 start their business back in 1960 in Hong Kong, famous for it Herbal Jelly 龟苓膏 and various type of herbal tea. They create the first Mango Sago at 1990 and that Mango Sago dessert make them famous until today. After many years of brand establishment, finally they open their branch in China and now in Malaysia. In Malaysia you can visit their shop at Berjaya Time Square KL, Pavilion KL, Cheras Leisure Mall, One Utama, The Mines Selangor and Gurney Plaza Penang.

 Mango Romance RM12.90, three different type of dessert are served together, it like a starter plate. Since this is the first time we here hence we just want to try many different type of dessert. We saw lot of couple ordered the same dish and I bet they must be having the same thought.

The very first small bowl of dessert is ice cream with jelly served with fresh mango, the jelly is a little bit chewy while the mango is too ripe, it has become a little bit mushy.

 Next small bowl is blended mango served with glutinous rice ball. Pure mango blended with no water added create a very rich and sticky mango juice, it was pretty good to go along with glutinous rice ball since it can stick with the flavourless glutinous rice ball.

 Mango Ball wrapped with shredded coconut and few slice of fresh mango, the same comment here for the over ripe mango.

Ganoderma Herbal Jelly灵芝龟苓膏 RM7.90, I have high hope on their Herbal Jelly as it was their signature dish and it also their very first product when Hui Lau Shan establish many years back. After tasting it I feel disappointed, the Herbal Jelly just doesn't has enough herbal taste, it doesn't has the authentic bitter taste and the worst is syrup given instead of honey.

Hui Lau San located at Gurney Plaza beside Kim Gary.

Honestly Hong Kong Hui Lan Shan is much better compare to Penang, the food presentation here is a little bit unorganised and mango is too ripe as well.
