What to have for dessert at Hong Kong's Sichuan restaurants
After all those fiery flavours, it's all the more important to cleanse the palate with a refreshing final course, and you’d be pleased to hear that Hong Kong's Sichuan restaurants are no slouch when it comes to mouth-cooling puddings. Try a sweet dessert soup with malva nuts and orange peel shavings, or a bowl of home-made gelato. Plum is a popular choice, but for something a little headier, opt for ice cream spiked with huangjiu – a Chinese liqueur whose name translates literally as “yellow wine”. Gan bei!
