Red Egg has a fairly large dessert menu for a Chinese restaurant. Think fried green tea rice balls, red bean pudding, a spicy ginger crème brûlée, and more traditional sweets like sesame mochi balls and steamed milk and egg custard. All these desserts are portioned for one, with the exception of the Coconut Pudding ($8).
Bring or friend or two to share this dish; it's served in an actual coconut shell and to devour the entire thing yourself would be a bad idea. The pudding is served cold and spooned out table-side by the waiter. Supple and creamy with a texture that's best described as a cross between flan and gelatin, it's just pure and lightly sweetened coconut straight through and through. The flavor is unexpectedly intense, so make sure to cut with sips of hot tea at the table; a little goes a long way.
