A good meal is never complete without capping it off with a delightful dessert.

And Hong Kong just happens to be home to a plethora of extremely good ones. A lot of joints here serve both traditional and modern sweet treats.

A must-try from their traditional desserts is the Mango pudding. This mainstay in dessert menus is made with agar, evaporated milk, sugar and the freshest mangoes. It is light, creamy, and tasty but not overwhelmingly sweet.

From the modern ones, the bubble-like egg waffle has been garnering a massive number of fans. Its crispy edges are a great contrast to its chewy and moist center. Best served hot, there is a multitude of fun ways to do with it. Top it with ice cream or fruits, dip it in chocolate sauce or drizzle it with caramel. A word of advice though: It is so good, it can be addictive.
