100% Healthy Dessert in Millbrae now open

K K | Oct 16, 200604:08 AM     5

Drove by and took a peek inside today. This branch/location is at 328 Broadway Millbrae (the street # is soooo typical Chinese, which in Cantonese can phonetically be manipulated to a profitable business, sang yee faht) and is right across the Shadow Collections store that sells snacks, HK/Taiwan pop music CDs and DVDs, and next to the Lai Lai Chinese restaurant.

The menu is very impressive, 5 pages long and the take out menu is in full color with pictures. Should be identical to the Taraval SF location. The offerings here look very interesting, with a mix of traditional and modern HK style desserts and some fusion of western/european. If you like stuff like dun lai dun dan (steamed milk or steam egg custard), stewed stuff like almond/fungus/frog cream/sea coconut/pear/papaya kind of dessert, fruit based desserts like what you can find at Hui Lau Shan to some extent (and Golden Island in SF/San Mateo) then this place is for you. Tons of fancy drinks too (with fancy names to boot) and who knows what's inside but looks interesting. Also small snacks from typical HK style cafe snack fare to chocolate waffles, toasts, salads, and the various combo offerings of udon/ramen which probably are the least "authentic" items.
