The old shop plus net red shop, not only dessert, but also Cantonese style tea, double skin milk and ice cream are very good, the most amazing almond dew, smooth and sweet taste is not greasy.
As early as the 1920s, Cantonese called the "ice room" a place dedicated to selling ice cream. The ice room also served cold drinks such as soft drinks, beer, and sugar water. There used to be four big ice rooms in Guangzhou, but now only the "Shun Kee Ice Room" in Lao Xiguan is left. "Shun Kee Ice Room" is named after its founder, Lu Shun. At first, Lu Shun just made homemade ice cream and carried a burden to sell it along the street. Because the coconut ice cream he made was made of real ingredients and rich in coconut flavor, it soon became popular. So Lu Shun opened the Shun Kee Ice Room in Shif Fu (now No. 85 Baohua Road). It used to be the most prosperous area in Xiguan. Apart from banquets and banquets among the wealthy and tycoons of Xiguan, they all love Shunji to taste ice cream desserts, so the business is very good. The coconut ice cream in the Shun Kee Ice Room enjoys the reputation of being one of the "four big foods in Xiguan". In the 1950s and 1960s, even some foreign heads of state, such as Prince Sihanouk of Cambodia, came here to taste Shun Kee ice cream. Soon Kee now sells desserts such as ice cream and double skin milk, as well as congee, noodles. Address of Shun Kee Ice Room: No. 85 Baohua Road, Liwan District, Guangzhou.
Some people say that the ice room is the predecessor of the Hong Kong tea restaurant, which spread from Hong Kong to Guangzhou. In fact, the ice room in Guangzhou appeared with the development of the western food industry. At the beginning, the ice room was attached to the western restaurant.
Coconut and mango flavored ice cream has become Shun Kee's signature. According to legend, when Cambodia's new king Sihanouk visited Guangzhou in the 1950s and 1960s, he also liked coconut ice cream from Shun Kee.
Shun Kee Ice Room is a must go to Lao Xiguan, just like its name, it specializes in ice cream. The signatures here are mango ice cream and coconut ice cream. The two ice cream balls here cost 24 yuan, which is already the cheapest. There is also coconut shredded red bean sorbet at the door. This classic flavor reminds me of my childhood.
