Kai Kai Dessert offers a variety of local Hong Kong desserts. Upon perusing the menu, you’ll find a range of dishes that give a porridge-like impression, akin to the texture of grain porridge commonly found in Korea.

There are several options available. Personally, I ordered one with walnuts and almonds. Depending on the chosen option, there may be variations in taste. The version with walnuts and almonds had a flavor reminiscent of Korean grain porridge.

“Warm or Cold…”

Comparatively in Korea, it’s a dessert similar to porridge or grain porridge, which can be enjoyed either warm or cold, depending on your preference.

On the day of my visit, the weather was hot, so I opted for the cold version. On a chilly day, trying the warm version would also be a good choice.

If you’re visiting Hong Kong and want to try authentic Hong Kong desserts, this is a great place to go. If you’re fortunate, you might even have the chance to meet Chow Yun-fat by coincidence.
