Xiao Tian Gu 小甜谷, Tai Hang, Causeway Bay HK

This dessert has been getting more and more popular over the past few years. I tried visiting this place several times but so crowded. Finally I could get a table when passing by this place. My friends and I tried the below dessert (red bean pudding/double steamed milk/sesame walnut sweet/almond egg white). The red bean is a very selected one and cooked to a perfect texture. Walnut and sesame sweet is very smooth and aromatic, so is the almond egg white. However, just like most other shops, some important thing seem to be minor but to me it's very important. It's the use of salt, sugar, sauce and seasoning. If this is just a common dessert at HK$10-12, I wouldn't bother what sugar they use. Since the chef do have quite some effort and time on all these desserts, they should pay attention to getting some better fine sugar for all these desserts.

Too bad that most of the CN restaurants in BKK don't have some similar dessert.
