When you see delectable baked goods that look so luscious so finger-licking good and as aesthetically pleasing to the eye as the ones i had seen and tasted in Hong Kong; one would think i had just visited several patisserie’s in Paris.
Who would’ve thought Hong Kong could pull off some really amazing calorie filled treats ! With cake and pastries comes coffee which most love to accompany their indulgence with. However, being a coffee lover myself i quickly discovered that coffee wasn’t one of Hong Kong’s strongest attributes having to ask for an extra shot so it didn’t taste like i was drinking a quarter strength.
My first coffee experience started at a coffee house in Hung Hom, Kowloon called Pacific Coffee ( A coffee chain, where the brand is recognised as serving the best coffee in Hong Kong) A very comfortable and relaxing kind of place which was nice to escape into after being smothered by oceans upon oceans of people throughout the hectic Hong Kong city surroundings. Excited at the fact there was free wi-fi on offer for customers, i took advantage of this to get in contact with my loved ones back home in Australia but felt like smashing my head against the the keyboard frustrated at the fact it was a punishingly slow connection. I avoided using the wi-fi after that!
In every patisserie, coffeehouse or cafe i loved the fact that everything was immaculately presented and looked as if it were baked with love and passion. Being a keen baker myself, i know how time consuming presentation can be and i was really impressed at just how effortless and beautiful all food (not just baked goods) looked and was presented for consumers.
Hong Kong, an unexpected sweet tooth safari.
