HUI LAU SHAN: HK’s Favorite Mango Dessert is Opening in Manila!

Hui Lau Shan

Hui Lau Shan 許留山 is a household brand name very famous in Hong Kong globally known for their 200+ innovative dessert creations and refreshments using Philippine carabao mangoes.

It first started as a traditional herbal tea shop in the early ’60s, selling herbal jelly and a variety of herbal teas, which are believed to provide Chinese medical health benefits. But with the desire for innovation, they made a product breakthrough by adding the mango sago in the ’90s that has catapulted Hui Lau Shan the title of Hong Kong’s Fresh Fruit Dessert Pioneer.

With over 300+ stores internationally – China, Malaysia, South Korea, Macau, Canada, Taiwan, Paris, Vietnam and, Melbourne. It only made sense that the Philippines will soon be part of the growing chain.
