Famous in Guangzhou and Hong Kong, the Double Skin Milk (双皮奶) is renowned for its great taste and nutritious value. Being a specialty dessert of Guangzhou, it is enjoyed by both young and old.
During my quick research on Guangzhou, it was a MUST to try the Double Skin Milk. After walking back and forth along Shang Xia Jiu Road (上下九路), we finally located Nan Xin Double Skin Milk Dessert Shop (南信牛奶甜品专家). Without fail, we ordered two kinds of double skin milk.
When the desserts - Double Skin Milk with Red Bean (红豆双皮奶) and House Original Flavour Double Skin Milk (南信双皮奶) came, it tasted similar to Hong Kong's Double Boiled Milk (炖奶). I like the soft and sweetness of the milk custard. The sweetness was just nice. I prefer the original taste to the other with red bean. The red bean somehow overwhelmed the delicious double skin milk. (Food Rating: 3.5/5)
Apparently, this restaurant is also famous for its wonton noodles and I forgot to order that. Well, there is always a next time. There is still so much to explore in Guangzhou.
Beef Brisket Noodle Soup (上汤牛腩粉面) was heavenly. The delicious rich broth and chewy noodles cooked in al dente way complemented very well. The beef brisket was equally good as it was rich in flavour. The rich broth tasted like wanton soup but delicious. (Food Rating: 3.5/5)
Pig Trotters Noodle Soup (上汤猪手粉面) was very similar to the Beef Brisket Noodles Soup. The tender pig trotters with the rich broth was fantastic. It was mouth-watering. (Food Rating: 3.5/5)
Rice Vermicelli Wrapped with Mushrooms and Beef (珍菌牛肉肠) was a huge serving when it arrived. The soft and chewy vermicelli was the exact texture I liked most. The serving was best eaten with at least four persons. It was like having four long strips of rice vermicelli wraps (肠粉). I liked the flavour but it become more salty as you ate more. (Food Rating: 2.5/5) - Minus marks for the saltiness.
The pickles were amazing. It was served with the noodles. A fantastic appetizer.
