FROM HONG KONG TO CANADA - A taste of Full House Desserts
Tucked inside the main level of the fairly new Emerald Condos is a tiny world of various tiny retail and food shops of mostly Asian origin you can get all kinds of different food like Poke, Japanese cheesecake, Indian food, Jamaican patties and more.
One of the new businesses that just opened in August is FULL HOUSE DESSERTS, this is a tiny little take out Hong Kong dessert shop that comes from a very popular Hong Kong franchise with over 500 shops in mostly Hong Kong. I checked out 3 of their cold dishes. The Mango Sago, and the Mango and Durian Pancakes.
The Mango Sago has a milky texture with chunks of mango and I believe there is also some pomello in it. It is served in a plastic container and you eat it with a spoon. Imagine a mango lassie with some small chunks of mango and that's sort of what the taste and consistency is similar to.
|Mango and Durian Pancake|
Durian fruit is known as one of the stinkiest fruits in the world and is not common to the North American diet but is very popular in Asia. It is definitely and acquired taste. I preferred the mango one of course because it was more familiar and sweeter. It's a very soft and delicate dessert. My friends 3 year old wasn't sure what to make of it. She thought it was play dough and didn't believe it was a pancake.

They also have Hot sweet soups like Walnut and Black Sesame. There is also cold soya bean or grass jelly.
The 3 desserts we tried cost about $27.
