Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert @ One Utama

    For the past few months or so, we saw a slew of NEW Hong Kong style dim sum and desserts outlets opening across the Klang Valley. One of our favorite is Sheng Kee Dessert @ One Utama. Contrary to its name, Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert offers more than just beautiful desserts. The menu also features a savoury selection of Hong Kong snacks, dim sum and rice dishes, along with refreshing beverages to whet every diner’s appetite.
    We were here on a Saturday afternoon. Hong Kong Sheng Kee is spotted with a good crowd – always a good sign.
    Snowy Char Siew Bun (RM 6.90)

    It reminds me of Tim Ho Wan’s signature polo char siew bao. With chunks of juicy, sweet yet savoury BBQ char siew encrusted in a soft and pillowy golden bun; it was delicious. My only gripe was that the golden bun was too sweet for my likings.
    HK Carrot Cake (RM 5.90)

    Sheng Kee’s carrot cake was a perfect rendition of crispy outer layer–charred around the edges with a smooth and starchy centre.
    Salmon Skin with Pork Floss (RM 5.90)

    The crispy salmon skin topped with pork floss and drizzled with sweet plum sauce was so addictive that it ought to be illegal!  We can’t stop ourselves from nibbling on the crunchy and deep fried salmon skin.

    Lychee Peppermint (RM 5.90); Green Lime with Plum Juice (RM 5.90)
    The drinks, however, were a bit watered down. We would love to have a stronger peppermint taste for the lychee peppermint drinks and more tangy flavours for the plum juice.

    Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy Rice (RM 13.90)

    The sweet and salty flavours, combined with a mouth watering and umami laden sauce is just the perfect comfort food anyone will ever need.  It was good but the pork belly was not the melt in your mouth pork belly that we were accustomed to.
    SK Signature Combination Noodle (RM 16.90)

    The wanton noodles were the best! SK serves very al dente noodles that border on crunchy (in a good way), just like those that we have in Hong Kong. The wanton comprised of crunchy fresh prawns wrapped in paper thin wrapping skin. Served together with honey glazed caramelized char siew and jumbo size dumplings; it was the one of the best wanton noodles that we have ever had in Malaysia.

    Do note that the Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy Rice and SK Signature Combination Noodle were served in tasting portion. The actual portion is actually double the size, and deemed to be good value for money at RM 16.90.
    Yolk Custard Bun (RM 6.90)
    The yolk custard bun does live up to our expectation. Once the delicate, fragrant exterior is punctured, a surge of golden creamy custard oozes out. It was so delicious, with a pleasant aftertaste of golden egg yolk.

    Yuen Yang Paste (RM 6.90); SK Mango Pamelo Sago (RM 8.90)

    The Yuan Yang paste consisted of black sesame and Chinese almond soup is a all time classic. It was thick, creamy, not too sweet but lack of aroma. The mango pamelo sago dessert was light and refreshing, rich, creamy and cold.
    All in all, Hong Kong Sheng Kee offers excellent selection of Hong Kong style cuisines without breaking the bank. The wanton noodles are probably the best I’ve had outside of Hong Kong.
