Fresh Fruit Desserts (Hong Kong style)

Is anyone aware of a dessert place in the Bay Area that serves fresh fruit desserts? I'm thinking of the kind of dessert places they have in Hong Kong and Singapore that serve mango pudding and icecream, topped with lots of fresh fruit such as strawberries, mango, cantalope, banana and kiwi.

(Now that it's getting a little hot out, I'm craving this kind of dessert!)

  1. That is a good idea right now! There are quite a few. One of the best is in San Francisco, a branch of HK's Hui Lau Shan, called Creations Dessert House.

    Another good one is in Newark, near the Lion Market, called Desserts Zone.

    If neither of those are close to you, let us know what town you're in.

        If you can read Chinese there should be at least two locations in the Oakland area for similar Hong Kong style desserts (I always saw ads for them in Sing Tao Sunday edition newspaper). One seems to be near Oakland airport, and one might be around Oakland Chinatown. Sorry, not much help until I see ads for them again.

        But in the meantime Creatons is very very good and would be worth the drive.

        I second Creations. I like anything with the glutinous rice balls.

      3. in SF. there's a place called Creations Desserts that will probably have what you're looking for.

        here's an article that mentions it...
