Hee Kee (囍記) Desserts at Jurong Point (Giveaway included!)

Being a hardcore dessert lover, I grabbed the chance to attend the food tasting at Hee Kee Desserts, located at Jurong Point. (Nearest Mrt is Boon Lay and not Jurong East.) Hee Kee means ''treasuring happiness'', based on Hong Kong desserts style, offering a wide range of desserts to choose from. 

The vintage style interior design and its 40 seats setting! 

Before I go into details of the 6 signature items, here is a picture of them! I can't wait to share and seriously I think that the presentation wise already owned its competitors flat. Time for taste judgement...

First right up was the Traditional Steamed Milk Pudding served warm. I have to admit that it was my first time eating steamed milk pudding due to the fact that I would usually go for the more fanciful and extravagant looking desserts. Despite the minimalist look, the texture was velvety and the milkiness was an acquired taste. Despite it being my least favorite that day, the ladies were all complementing it and enjoying themselves. I guessed this must be a girl's kind of dessert.

Up next would be the Homemade Beancurd with Gula Melaka! Not exactly silky smooth, it was foolproof that the beancurd served here was homemade! The gula melaka syrup was diluted down (light in taste) and not the gooey type of consistency. The intent could be to impart the gula melaka flavor as well as still be easily mixed with the beancurd.   

Enjoying my bowl of homemade beancurd with gula melaka! Luckily I added less syrup for this one as I did not want to get a sugar rush so early! 4 more desserts to try though... 

The intensity raised as the tasting continued because the desserts were getting interesting! Suited to Singapore's hot weather, the Whole Coconut with Coconut Ice Cream and peanut crush was a hit among us! Who could resist such a dessert? I could already imagine myself having this dessert on the beach! Thumbs up for the effort of craving out the chunky flesh so that I could enjoy myself thoroughly without personally exerting any effort. Not to forget the glass of coconut juice I had that was given with this dessert!  

The Mango Cheong Fan was something that sounds questionable at first. Erase all thoughts of the savoury version you once knew because this silky-smooth sweet coconut infused skin could be an incoming dessert trend! Nicely wrapped like a parcel of a perfect gift and encasing a huge juicy chunk of mango within. This was one really slippery dessert of a kind. 

Saving the durian related desserts for the last, this D24 Durian Sauce with Sago proved to be too filling to non-durian lovers. I felt like I was drinking a 'Cream of durian' soup-of-the-day with the sago as well as the durian pulp adding textural contrast to the overall creaminess.  

Last but not least, the Durian Pancakes wrapped nicely in bright yellow fragile-thin skin. Filled with a mixture of cream and durian flesh, I stuffed half a piece at a time into my mouth, enjoying the intense burst of durian!
Now you guys know that I am a durian lover and I do not want to share this dessert!
