It was after 8:30pm when we were seated at Sheng Kee, a casual and laid back Hong Kong style cafe that serves dimsum, noodles and desserts all day. We placed our orders and paid cash at the counter and waited for the food to be served. The nicest thing about dining at Sheng Kee was having affordably priced, authentic fare brought to our table by friendly staff without having to pay the 10% service charge. Our noodles were served piping hot about 5 minutes after we had ordered them. The BBQ pork
Sheng Kee specializes in Hong Kong desserts so their dessert selection is more extensive than their food selection which though limited, was adequate. Traditional favourites such as almond paste and black sesame paste were available but we opted for iced desserts. The lemongrass jelly with aloe vera ($3.90+) was light and refreshing. The mango pomelo dessert with mango pudding ($5.90) was very good and was on par with the versions served in Chinese restaurants like Peach Garden and Tung Lok. Sheng Kee was generous with the pomelo sacs and diced mango. For the same price, the mango pudding can be replaced with Chinese herbal jelly (gui ling gao). We left feeling happy and satiated.
