To end off this current series of reviews of HK eateries, let's go back to Victoria Peak. An attractive-looking shop at the entrance of The Peak Tower, Mimi Desserts offers an array of traditional and modern beverages, as well as dessert items for the sweet tooth. Anyway, does the Chinese name of the shop remind you of that old song by Teresa Teng?
I should've get Honeydew to pose for the camera as we were going to have honeydew pudding. If you can't recall who's Honeydew, she's the cute turtle that sometimes appear on this blog. Haha... :P
Honeydew Pudding HK$38.00 (~S$6.85)
Having a velvety texture, the honeydew pudding was quite aromatic. Having said that, it was just a tad too sweet for my liking. I wonder where did I put the toy that was attached to the cover of the container.
Mixed Daifuku HK$36.00 (~S$6.45)
Honeydew Flavour - Taste: 8/10
Strawberry Flavour - Taste: 8/10
The Japanese sweets didn't disappoint at all. Both the honeydew and strawberry fillings were substantial, while the glutinous rice cakes were delightfully chewy without being sticky on the teeth.
Tofu Pudding with Chocolate Sauce HK$36.00 (~S$6.45)
Should you order the watery tofu pudding mixed with chocolate sauce and chocolate rice, you'll probably realise that traditionality sometimes shouldn't coexist with modernity. Simply put, I felt that it tasted a bit weird, but edible still.
Taro Milk Tea (700 ml) HK$42.00 (~S$7.55)
As a huge fan of taro milk tea, I was hoping to be delighted by the drink that we ordered. However, it turned out that the one served at Mimi Desserts was pretty diluted. Besides that, the tapioca pearls weren't that chewy.
Pika's advice: I'm not sure about how decent is the rest of the items, but you may want to stick to the daifuku. I made it a point to drop by HKUST, which celebrated its 20th anniversary last year. I really miss those days.
