(Hee Kee Desserts had since ceased operations.)
Hee Kee Desserts is one of the new tenants at Jurong Point, which had been noted for their creative and innovative take on Hong Kong desserts.
(Mango Cheong Fun)
Having seen photos on Instagram and Burpple on their Mango Cheong Fun, we decided to go for it. To mimic Cheong Fun, a thin layer of coconut jelly was used to wrap the fresh mangoes. The result was a silken smooth skin that had pandan flavours, which matched the soft mangoes well. However, we found it a pity that the sweetness of the mangoes were overwhelming the subtle flavours of coconut. It was no doubt an interesting and innovative dish, but probably the flavours could be tuned to be more neutral on each other.
We initially expected something more similar to a Durian Mousse for our Durian Pudding. Served chilled, it was really pudding-like as the fibres was also mixed into the pudding thus making it a wee bit stiff but flavourful for the pudding as it was full of the pungent fruit’s flavour. The mousse added the bittersweet flavour and a chew as it contained fibres.
(Liu Sha Tang Yuan)
With the trend of Liu Sha Bao getting common, Hee Kee Dessert has taken an unconventional approach by infusing the same concept to Tang Yuan. Their Liu Sha Tang Yuan comes with a choice of either Osmanthus Soup or Ginger Soup. The Tang Yuan seemed to be a tad thick, but the filling is full of sweet-salty goodness. We thought that there could be more fillings, but when it comes to liu sha, when can there be enough?
We do love Hee Kee Dessert for its take on creative and innovative Hong Kong desserts, taking the effort to incorporate some modernity into traditional fare. It would be interesting to see what they would come up in the future, hopefully when I make my return visit soon.
