A mid day break with hot herbal jelly and cold papaya milk

This was just a quick dessert stop to recharge with something sweet or refreshing or both in a little shop selling herbal teas and jellies (218 Sai Yeung Choi Street South, tel : +857 2398 1183) at the adjoining junction of Sai Yeung Choi Street South and Bute Street.

After having had guiling gao for so many years, this was a first for me slurping them piping hot and it was refreshing in its good way too. I ordered a cup of the cold papaya milk as I spied them in the chilled dispensers at the front of the shop while walking in and it was actually pretty good, filled with the all natural flavors of the fruit in creamy milk.

After the hot bitters of the guilling gao, the cold and soothing sweet milk was juxaposed to be the unexpected but perfect tempering of this dessert stop.
