I don’t care what you call it (or how you spell it): slushee, slushy, slushie, slurpee or granita. But this has to be the world’s best tasting and looking slush.
Served on large martini glasses, LNC Dessert House offer over 20 variations of slushees. My personal favourite is this mango and lychee slush with mini sticky balls and mango gelato. Despite not being able to see much of the slush on first impression, they do serve the perfect amount -I found myself finishing it off just as I was beginning to shiver and get a brain freeze 😉
The colourful things you see on top are glutinous sticky rice balls. They have a light chewy texture which balances the smooth slush quite well. Also scattered beneath the scoop of mango gelato are whole pieces of crisp and juicy lychee, green mango and jackfruit.
The whole combination is sweet but not overpowering. It is fruity and refreshing.

Dianne, my dining companion, had her usual repeat order of the mango slush with fresh grapefruit and sago. I think any dessert with sago is usually a winner.

LNC Dessert House is the closest thing to Hong Kong’s legendary desserts without having to step on a plane. These slushees totally beat anything from a convenient store.
Mmmm, I could do with another one now.

  • I think I could make a good mess trying to get that ball from the top! 🙂 Looks yum though

  • They look a bit too exotic for me when I walk past the shop to get home from work.. but after reading your post on it I might give it a try 🙂

  • mango and lychee would work really well together. the grapefruit reminds me of the mango sago pudding you get in Palace Chinese Yum Cha which they add grapefuit in. it’s really refreshing.

  • Yum! The flavour combos sound delicious. I’ve been meaning to check this place out – I reckon come Summer time I might be here all the time!

  • Oh wow, I’m getting cold just looking at those! I love sticky rice balls in icy desserts. The texture contrast is the best! Will have to check this out when I get home.

  • Ume

    Ohhhh looks so yum! I may try it out on my next trip to Sydney 🙂
