As I know there had been some questions on this topic in the past and the relationship with the other HLS stores. I have some pretty good contacts in the restaurant business and got to the bottom of this. It seems the HLS in SF is in fact the real deal, the others are fakes and not recognized and managed by HK. If you go outside of the HLS store in SF, there is a sign written in Chinese basically saying the SF store is the only legitimate HLS and also lists the Hui Lau Shan phone number in HK for questions. The name "Creations Dessert House" was created to appeal to more than an asian crowd but in Chinese, it is "Hui Lau Shan". Add to the fact that the SF store is indeed much better than the Milpitas store, everyone I talked to agreed on this as well. That's what I know.
