Daliang Eight Record

To know more about the desserts in Hong Kong, Daliang Eight Record must be on the list. This restaurant dates back to the 40s of last century, Guangzhou. The founder had already owned two dessert shops in Guangzhou, as he was born in Shunde, the eighth child in his family, so he named his restaurant as the Daliang Eight Record. Later in the late 50s he closed it last century, after doing several jobs in Hong Kong, he finally found a good partner in the 80s, he decided to re-operate his restaurant again, so Daliang Eight Record can be seen now. Nowadays, it has become Hong Kongs old but famous shop, its bright yellow and bright red signs are very eye-catching, with clean and bright store environment. Daliang Eight Record not only attracts the locals, but also loved by Japanese tourists.

One of the characteristics of this old shop is fine in the food choices, so there are only a dozen models of dessert here, and the paste type desserts account for half of the desserts, such as almond paste, walnut paste, sesame paste and so on. The most unique one is the coconut paste. Make the fresh coconut into juice, mix a thick paste of boiled rice milk. Although the process seems simple, but it really takes a lot of time to do it well, because you can only grind little shredded coconut at a time, or it can not operate smoothly, making the process cumbersome. In order to keep fresh, the restaurant only supply the coconut paste on Sunday.

Loranthaceae egg tea dessert is the sign here, only use the old Loranthaceae, the old the better, it is extremely loose. This dessert not only taste good dessert, but also has anti-anemic effect.

Dimao dessert shop

This dessert remains its taste quality in the 25 years since it was opened. I could not help go into the shop and order a cup of seeds almond tea every time I passed the Dimao dessert shop, open the cover then came smelling fragrance of almonds, entry is silky smooth texture. This dessert is quiet much enough for one person, if you will feel half full when eat half cup. My friend likes the sesame paste most because it is intense with strong sweet smell. Remind you that there will be long lines on the eve of every holiday the famous restaurant in Kowloon City, so Dimao dessert shop is the same, so be prepared well.
