Hui Lau Shan is a dessert chain originally from Hong Kong. They specialize mainly in mango and coconut desserts. Apparently, they have now opened up locations in the USA and other parts of the world as well, which is great to see. I do not know how the quality in the locations outside of Hong Kong are, but if they are anything like the Hong Kong stores, they should be really good.

The desserts they have at Hui Lau Shan can come in both takeout and dine-in forms. They have both drinks as well as desserts, and both options are really good. My favorite thing to get at Hui Lau Shan is their Mango & Coconut Sago drink. This drink has mangoes, coconut milk, and sago (like tapioca at the bottom). It is both super refreshing and super tasty. I am not sure how healthy it is (it probably has a lot of added sugar), but it is worth the tradeoff. Especially if there is hot weather in Hong Kong, this drink will cool you down and taste super good.

Most of the desserts at Hui Lau Shan are around $4-8, but it can depend on what you get. I have not tried all of the desserts, but if you like mango/coconut flavored things, you will definitely enjoy Hui Lau Shan!

Hui Lau Shan Recommendation Rating: 3.5

4: Something worth making time to check out

5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for
