鸿福堂 @ Hong Kong (CNY Edition)


Usually I don’t write twice about a place but because of the upcoming Chinese New Year, and since I’m gonna miss it in my home country Singapore, I’ve decided to write about traditional new year cakes eaten in HK and some can be found in Singapore as well.

I was served a big slice each of each cake for me to try at the shop at Lok Ma Chau MTR Station and I dug in! 🙂

Carrot Cake or Lor Pak Kou... This carrot cake typically in HK is always filled with loads of white radish, dried shrimps, chinese sausage and dried scallops. This was served steamed but if served pan fried with XO sauce, it would be nicer. 🙂
Yam Cake or Wu Tao Kou. The ones in HK has a lot of yam and the same ingredients as those of the carrot cake. This one is yammy yummy.
New Year Cake Or Nin Kou. The difference between HK and SG ones are that HK ones have some coconut flavouring inside. It gives it a nicer aroma definitely. Not very sweet this one and is nice, soft and chewy.
Water Chestnut Cake or Ma Tai Gou. Nice soft and refreshing. I didn't really like it cos I still prefer it cold. This was served hot.
Mango Pomelo Dessert Cake or Yong Chi Kam Lou Kou. A famous dessert made into a pudding cake. I still prefer their drink version instead of this although this cost more than the 4 items above.
Takeaway pack which was made in a hard container which you can recycle for keeping food. Not a bad idea after all.

Rating: 4.5/5. Service is tops!

Taste: Overall pretty good! Love the use of ingredients and loads of it. Of course the prices comes with it as well. 😉

Portion: Average.

Price: They sell in  slabs. HKD$65 for all except the Mango Dessert which cost HKD$85 or soemthing like that. Other than the bpx……..xzXC

RTE: Only good for CNY period so I bought 3 slabs of yam and carrot ones for personal consumption. 🙂

Location: Lok Ma Chau MTR station, Hong Kong.
