Duck Shing Ho is the most famous factory in Hong Kong for supplying Chinese egg rolls. It’s a popular snack and dessert that you have probably tried before. Very popular to locals, Duck Shing Ho is not to be missed if you travel to Hong Kong.

Duck Shing Ho is literally a factory. You go in, buy your box and leave. I came at around 6:30pm and was able to buy the last 4 boxes of the day. They’re famous for their coconut egg rolls, but they sold out of these by the time I arrived.

Coconut Egg Rolls - 1 box = $51HKD – about $6.50CAD

When they sell out – they sell out and there’s no way of convincing them to sell you a box that’s prepared for tomorrow’s shipment (trust me, I tried). They wouldn’t sell me ONE of the boxes you see in the photo. They’re perfect as gifts, available gift wrapped on request. These egg rolls are definitely a local favourite and a must try.

Duck Shing Ho exports within Hong Kong/Asia and parts of Australia and North America – since they’re made is Hong Kong it makes the most sense to try them here!

On the table:

Original Egg Rolls – 1 box = $47HKD – about  $6.20CAD

**Butter Egg Rolls – 6/6

  • Butter egg rolls – 1 box = $50HKD – about $6.50CAD
  • I’ve had many versions/brands of these egg rolls and this is by far the best egg roll I’ve ever tried. You can taste the home made quality and freshness.
  • I can only magine how good the coconut egg rolls are because these ones were already so good.

  • They’re very light, flaky and crispy egg rolls that aren’t too sweet but have a nice and rich egg flavour. It’s not too eggy though, they’re perfect.
  • These aren’t overly buttery either, so they’re not heavy and they’re perfect with a cup of tea.
  • Very delicate, tender and crumbly, the egg roll sheets are so thin and fresh tasting.
  • Fresh, baked daily and hand selected.

    Omg I lovee egg roll.. my favorite snack. I can seriously finish an entire tin in one sitting and I use to do that all the time when I was younger and didn’t gain weight (I wish I still didn’t…). That is def on my to-do list when I go to HK next week!

  • Mijune says:

    You definitely still don’t!!! You’re so tall and lean!!!

    Omg you’re going next week!?!?!? Ok I have Hong Kong posts for at least another week so keep checking!! Have some great places ;)

    There is one thing that I must ask, given you took picture of the staff (though I could have asked in the private kitchen post as well): Did they give you hell for trying to take pictures? My experience in some Chinese shops have not been particularly good when they see me with my camera…

    That aside, ah, egg rolls… I haven’t had these in ages. The box does bring good memories, as that was the brand my mom used to buy (though the regular version, not the coconut version). I have always wondered why she bought specifically that brand and not others. That explains it! :)

  • Mijune says:

    KimHo – I almost always get a slap on the wrist when I take photos at Chinese restaurants…unless it’s a gourmet place..then they’re usually quite proud…*usually*

    This place didn’t give me hell because they’re used to it…they’re famous in Hong Kong so they have lots of people taking photos….same with the private kitchen…the private kitchen was all over it and SO used to it!

    You’re lucky your mom knows the best!! That’s great that you’ve tried them! :)

    When I visited Hong Kong last year, I brought back several tins of these butter cookies, same brand in fact. They are so good and messy!

  • Mijune says:

    LOL I tried to bring them home but I had no more room!! I had already filled one check in and one carry on with food! Wasn’t it hard to share?! =p

    I love egg rolls from Duck Shing Ho!!! Unfortunately I am leaving since 21 years in Switzerland. I can only taste this fantastic egg rolls only once every 3-4 years. This is like a punishment! Does anybody know if Duck Shing Ho also deliver to Switzerland?

  • Mijune says:

    @Sukey – Oh I wish they did delivery!! I wonder if the quality would be sacrificed? I hope you can relive your happy moments of these egg rolls through my blog though :)
