Cheuk Yuet Cake Shop (卓越食品餅店) - ♕♕♕♕♕

Cheuk Yuet is an old-school Hong Kong sweet pastries shop in Sheung Wan.
It has re-created quite a few traditional Cantonese specialty items,
but it’s their Chess Piece Cake and Pudding which really stands out amongst the rest...

23102010064 23102010063
Very well known in this vicinity, for its traditional types of HK Desserts..

A few of its pastries with different flavours..

棋子餅 (蓮蓉) -
Looking like a Chinese Chess piece, this miniature cake with lotus seed paste is perfectly smooth and not too cloyingly sweet.  This would make for a pretty good petit four in Cantonese cuisine? ~  8/10

豬仔餅 -
They have these baked pastries moulded in either a Buddha’s shape, or a Pig, Fish or a Young Chicken shape. By total chance, I ended up getting the PIG – the most well-known of them all within Hong Kong.  A bit crunchy, almost like a Chinese cookie ~  7/10

Cantonese Puddings

砵仔糕 -
Almost everyone in Hong Kong knows what this Pudding with Red Beans tates like, but apparently the most traditional type are served in China Porcelain containers.  Most modern versions however took a shortcut and are served in white bowls.  Here – this shop not only retains the most traditional way of serving them, but its nicely chewy and not too sweet for once!  Definitely the best Porcelain Pudding in Hong Kong I’ve tried so far ~  8/10

Price: $9 Per Person
Score: ★★★★★☆
*Bargain. Bargain. Bargain.  All 4 items above only costed me $9, or below USD 1.20!

Opening Hours:
Mon – Sun:   8:00am ~ 19:00pm

Address: 西環皇后大道西183號地下
(Queen's Road West, No. 183 Ground Floor)
Phone: 2540 0858
