Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert @ 1 Utama PJ

It has been a really hectic week at work for me and strangely, that made my weekends felt a little more blissful than it normally would. What more than having some authentic Hong Kong delights to kick start my Saturday!

Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert

The last couple of months saw the opening of a fair number of new eateries in 1 Utama Shopping Center, and Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert is one of it. Located a few doors away from my favorite fried chicken place, Kyochon, and at the lower ground floor of new wing.

Contrary to its name, Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert is not just a dessert place, but a conceptual restaurant that originates from Singapore, offering a wide selection of authentic Hong Kong styled dishes as well as desserts to boost. Talk about naming conventions, I once thought that they only serve desserts too!

On peak Saturday lunch hour, a queue ensued from inside the restaurant. We love our weekend dim sum treats don't we? I certainly do! 

A glimpse around the crowded room and it is obvious that the restaurant is a favorite among families with young children. The weekday crowd on the other hand would probably stray towards the white collared clan. Hence, I reckon having set lunch menus would be a great addition.

Accompanied by Chooi Ling for my dim sum feast today.

Both the drinks below are part of SK's all time favorite. It had a sweet and refreshing twist to it!

Lychee Peppermint. Rm5.90.

Green Lime with Plum Juice. Rm5.90.

HK Siew Mai. Rm5.90.

Give me baskets of these and I can guarantee you that I'll finish it all up. Filled with plump prawns and juicy pork. What was missing - Chinese chili sauce. I requested for some but ended up with a tiny plate of conventional chili sauce instead.

Salmon Skin with Pork Floss. Rm5.90.

A heavenly combination of crisp salmon skin topped with pork floss and drizzled with sweet plum sauce. This was another one of those dishes that I couldn't stop munching on.

HK Carrot Cake. Rm5.90.

Prepared fresh daily, these carrot cakes were equally scrumptious - nicely charred outside but firm inside. A tweak - additional tiny dried shrimp please.

Snowy Char Siew Bun. Rm6.90.

The fluffy and crumbly bun itself was sweet and the pork fillings savory. This was a real mess to eat but addictive on every mouthful. Be prepared with a tissue in hand, you do not want to look like a slop! It also reminded me of the Tim Ho Wan version but with a much more flaky bun.

Yolk Custard Bun. Rm6.90.

Once the basket was placed on the table, I immediately picked up and pried the steaming hot bun apart - slowly, and out oozed a stream of salted egg custard. You have to eat this hot!

Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy Rice. Rm13.90.

The mui choy could get a little salty towards the end. Remember to pair it with a spoonful of fragrant rice!

SK Signature Combination Noodle. Rm16.90.

Honey glazed caramelized char siew, plump prawn wantons and dumplings. The mere sound of that - please order this guys. Notwithstanding, this is the tasting portion.

Yuen Yang Paste. Rm6.90.

A bowl of black sesame and almond soup served warm. Unlike most ying yang dessert, this was not overwhelmingly sweet and rich, thus done just on the right tone.

SK Mango Pomelo Sago. Rm8.90.

Bountiful servings of juicy Filipino mangoes, sago and pomelo seeds. The texture could've been a hint thicker but my friend thought otherwise.

Overall Rating: 8/10. Looking back at all the photographs now, I realized that it is really difficult to find fault in dim sums, especially if its done the Cantonese way. Most of what I sampled at Hong Kong Sheng Kee was delectable. If I were to pick my least favorite dish, it would have to be the braised pork belly with mui choy dish. It came a hint saltier than what I would normally prefer. Withal, I thought my meal was unexpectedly satisfying.

Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert is located at:
Address: Lot LG311b, Lower Ground Floor, 1 Utama Shopping Centre PJ
Opening Hours: 10am - 10pm Daily.
