Last week I stopped in at a new Hui Lau Shan knock-off in Newark. The swallow nest and mango pudding dessert shown below is a generous size serving for $5.40, yet has a light and healthy taste. The pudding part was nearly a cupful in volume. This was a stiffer style than I like and the cooked bits of mango were plentiful but not as stunningly delicious as the pieces of fresh mango draped over the edges. The crystalline coconut ice melted on the tongue with the cleanest finish. The mango sorbet crowning a second scoop of coconut ice was the frozen essence of dead ripe mangoes. The swallow nest was but a spoonful of syrup topping the coconut ice, boiled down allegedly to ensure complete digestiblity. The mangoes are the best of the season and featured in a dizzying array of drinks and desserts here.
