We were at Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert (#B1-K12) to check out their lunch set deals, but we discovered something even more tempting……they were having a Snack Preview promotion at 50% off for three of their newly launched creations!
Their promotion offers shoppers a chance to try out new items at a special preview price before deciding which crowd-pleasing items get to be featured in their menu. We love the fact that their menu consists of only ‘by popular demand’ items! Your feedback counts!
We started off with the spring trio as it instantly captured our attention with its strong aroma and they were unusually loooong as compared to a typical fried spring roll.
Love how the moist fillings were wrapped with extremely crispy skin. We felt that it could be even better if it were less oily. The ingredients were so succulent, it is best to finish this while it is still warm!
We have heard of sesame, peanut, red bean and almond paste…but lotus paste? Isn’t that found in moon cakes only? We were smitten with fragrant golden brown bits in the paste, and later discovered that those were yummy fried walnuts!
Although the lotus paste is not as thick as what you’d expect in a regular liquid paste dessert, its unique taste and texture makes it worthy to try. It suits you best if you have preferences for desserts that are not too sweet or heavy.
The mango pomelo looked promising with its fusion of colours! At the first spoonful, we tasted a blend of sweet, bitter (the herbal jelly, if you are wondering) and sour flavours which excited our taste buds. Occasionally, we experienced a tingly minty sensation created by the clever use of mint leaves.
We were also impressed by the generous servings of mango and strawberry chunks. Very satisfied with the fruity aftertaste!
This Snack Preview promotion (at 50% off) will last until 30th April 2012, share about this with your friends too 🙂
Love, Tampines 1
