[Hong Kong] Yee Shun Milk Company

Yee Shun Milk Company, Hong Kong: Famous Double Skinned Steamed Egg Pudding

Hong Kong is desserts heaven. There are so many good and different desserts to choose from, one is really spoilt for choice. If I’m made to choose only one dessert shop in Hong Kong, I will pick Yee Shun Milk Company (港澳義順牛奶公司). Over and over again. The steamed puddings are very light, so they are perfect for after-meal desserts or supper. I feel healthy eating these.

Known for their signature steamed (or some call them stewed) egg pudding in two films (pictured above), it was love at first try for me. The thick milky favour and the silky smooth texture is to-die-for, I’ve not tasted anything like it before. You can choose hot or cold for the steamed milk puddings.

As you dig into the dessert, the special piece of film on the top surface clings and slips off your spoon delicately.

The texture is unbelievably silky smooth and fine.

Besides the signature steamed milk, they have other favours to choose from (such as chocolate, coffee, ginger).

I know their chocolate is my friend’s mochachocolata-rita’s favourite, so I have to try.

Steamed Ginger Milk Pudding

I love the mild ginger spiciness and warmth of this favour. Can’t decide if I like the ginger or signature steamed egg version more.

I love the Yee Shun logo design. It looks appealing while at the same time, retains the traditional feel which is suitable for the type of business and the food they serve. And they are masters at branding, because you can see the logo embossed everywhere.

Grilled Pork Chop, Yee Shun Milk Company, Hong Kong
Some late night snack we ordered one of the nights. It was some grilled pork chop. I find the meat tough, although quite fragrant.

1. As of May 2010, the outlet at Hennessey Road, Wan Chai has closed down (we found out the hard way) :(

2. They have branches in Macau too. I saw a branch in Macau (at the city center, near ruins).

    I went to Australian milk company instead. Love the chunky egg sandwiches….

      I have to try this Australian milk company next time … looks delicious :)~

    Looks delicious! I have never tried this! Do you have a recipe to make at home?


    • wiffy replied: — August 16th, 2010 @ 3:31 am

      Hi Leemei, I don’t have a recipe for this :p

    I love the double-skinned milk pudding at Yee Shun! It’s my favorite steamed milk pudding anywhere! I was a little annoyed when they raised the prices; I still remember a time when one bowl was just $17 or $18.

    Australia Milk Company also serves steamed milk pudding, but I find Yee Shun’s to be richer in flavor, with more of that fresh milk taste. However, the toast/bread and scrambled eggs at Australia are to die for! In contrast the toast at Yee Shun is terrible.

    Hong Kong is the reason I am so fat :(

      I didn’t try Australia Milk Company this round. Only knew about it after you and juhuacha told me about it. The scrambled eggs toast look soooo good, I must try it on my next trip.

      If I am staying in HK (lucky you!), I don’t mind putting on weight. It’s really a food paradise :)

    It’s really a bowl to die for. I had it everyday and only Yee Shun is the best – not overly sweet. Does anyone know how to make the “dun dan”? It’s HK$18 per bowl (plain’s the way I like my steamed egg).

    Hi i just discovered your food blog while looking for recipes for Chinese soups. Now while waiting to reap the result of shark fin melon soup I am browsing the other pages of your blog and the pic of egg pudding caught my eyes! O I just love this one you recommended! I have not tasted anything close to this in S’pore! I remembered having a serving daily during my last visit to Hong Kong & Macau. If you do know of any place that serves relatively similar pudding in S’pore, please share the details with me cos I won’t be going Hong Kong in near future. A side note, your recipes and reviews are very handy and helpful to a stay home mom like me who has to whip up wholesome meals in least elaborate steps. Keep it up: )

      Hi Jolene thanks for your kind words! Hope you like the shark fin melon soup. So far I have not found a place in SG that serves a nice bowl of milk pudding, if I do in future, I will feature it :)
