Completing Your Meal with Sweets: 3 Delicious Desserts to Order with Your Chinese Delivery

Chinese restaurants offer plenty of different types of appetizers, entrees, side dishes and even desserts that will satisfy just about any craving. Best of all, most restaurants offer delivery services for those who don't want to leave their home or are too busy to make it out of their office. When ordering Chinese delivery (from a restaurant such as Express Dragon), don't forget the dessert. If you're not sure what to get and are bored of fortune cookies, here are 3 delicious desserts that will complement your meal. 

Baked Tapioca Pudding (with Taro)

One of the most popular desserts that are commonly served after meals is baked tapioca pudding. This dessert looks similar to a pie. It is basically tapioca custard pudding with a pineapple crust on top for not only added texture but also an enhanced flavour. Some restaurants serve this dessert with slices of taro or with some type of sesame seed paste or red bean paste mixed in with the pudding.

Mango Pudding

Almost all Chinese restaurants have mango pudding on their menu, and for good reason too! Mango pudding at Chinese restaurants has a consistency that is more like jelly than pudding and is usually molded into cute shapes. This type of pudding is usually made from mango pulp, and some restaurants will even add diced mango. This mango pudding is not only healthy, but it is also light and delicious. It is often served with evaporated milk on the side.

Almond Cookies

There is nothing more delicious than fresh-baked almond cookies that have come straight out from the oven. Although these cookies are known as almond cookies, they actually aren't made from almonds at all. A piece of almond is usually placed at the top of the cookie for decorative purposes, but that's usually it. The buttery dough is mainly made from butter, flour and sugar although some Chinese restaurants may want to opt for almond flour instead of regular flour. These cookies are very crumbly and buttery with just a hint of sweetness.

Conclusion

When ordering Chinese delivery, consider the type of dessert that you're also craving or that you would be interested in trying. The desserts mentioned above are very popular because they are not only delicious, but can also be served cold, so they will easily make the trip. This way, you won't have to worry about these desserts even if the delivery service is taking longer than expected.
