SWEET DESSERTS AT NGONG PING VILLAGE, HONG KONG.

Hong Kong, Day 2 - Desserts

After Ngong Ping Village, our next destination was Tai O Fishing Village. But first, we need to replenish our energy with some desserts. Pete suggested Po Lin Monastery vegetarian desserts.

While waiting for some of our tour members to come back with the desserts (self-service style), the rest of us sat down to enjoy the garden view and plants.

I can't remember what is what..

These are bowls of sweet bean curd (tofu fa)
Another set of sweet desserts.
Centre top - yam puffs, on the right - red bean dumplings.
Wheat gluten and a bowl of sweet bean curd (tofu fa)
Sweet sauce and chili sauce.
After having replenished our energy, with renewed strength we all walked to the bus stop.

These neat recyclable collection bins can be found all over Hong Kong. Took this picture at the bus stop, while waiting for the bus to Tai O Fishing Village.

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father,

who loved us and by His grace gave us eternal comfort and

a wonderful hope, comfort you and strengthen you

in every good thing you do and say.

(2 Thessalonians 2:16-17, New International Version-NIV)

    1. Amalia, my friends did the picking and brought back the food items to us. Every one had the chance to taste a piece of every item. After eating a small piece of each item, we were filled up.

  5. Hi nancy,can you confirm to me if the yum puffs are like tofu? cause it it is, we also have that here in the Philippines, we call it taho. :)

    1. Steve, the yum puff skin is fried small yam paste and the filling of the yam puff is supposed to be minced meat plus other ingredients but in this case it was vegetarian. It is savoury and not sweet.

    1. Stacy, I didn't touch the chili sauce. I guess my friends took it with the wheat gluten.

    1. Kathy, it doesn't even taste like vegetarian har gao. The paste filling was sweet and I couldn't remember what was the name even after my friend mentioned the name.

    1. Mun, one of each will be too much for me. Every item was cut into two, so we each took a half of each item plus a bowl of tofu fah each. More than enough to last till dinner time.
