Zoe Cafe

My mum, who is in Singapore, had heard of this place and told me to go and check out if I am free in Hong Kong.,. so since mummy said to try it, why not?

Being the usual noob that is bad in directions, I circled the place twice before chancing upon this faithful little shop 🙂

Box!

The shop is so quaintly decorated .. and it has a ‘afternoon tea tai tai hang out feel’ to it .. So i walked in and decided to buy some dessert to top off my dinner.

Dark Chocolate Tart

I also got another opportunity to try their famous Zoe cake!

Zoe Cake

I meant it kept winking at me “GET ME GET ME!!!” so .. ok 🙂 its very light, has a hazelnut touch to it 🙂 pretty nice if you are looking for a light dessert to sum up your week

Cake Flor

This is another new find from my brother .

See, ever since we went to Japan for a holiday, even when the autumn season of food, hes been very crazy about chestnuts .. And ever since, he has included the whole family in his pursuit of Chestnut desserts…

Usually, when it comes to chestnut desserts, i usually avoid it .. I mean usually I eat chestnut as a snack, or in my mum’s cooking .. but never as a dessert .. however, after eating this, I feel very convinced I have crossed over to expanding the way that chestnuts can be and should be eaten in desserts as well 🙂

Presenting …

Waguri Millefeuille 和栗ミルフィーユ

 

 

Chestnut babyyy ❤

This is my new favourite cake as of now 🙂

Super love it 🙂 Big HIT for me

and the base is so crisp and doesn’t get soggy even with the amount of cream dalloped on top.  The chestnut doesn’t have strong traces of colourings (which is good I like) . Although eating it can be a little messy, but,  Its the next awesome close chestnut original tasting cake you can get if you are not in Japan.

Following my brithday celebration, we went to Robertson Quay to chill and I brought them to a newly found chocolate place that my brother had been raving about (especially their pleasure cake sinfully heavenly)..

The ambience here is like a hidden spot away from the hustle and bustle from the city.. Its quite interesting to people watch here. .. as there are many bars around.. so you can see the usual couple watch – we spotted a pairs of interesting couples .. and a nice place with a nice ambience to chillax

we settled ourselves down after waiting for abit and ordered ..

Chocolate Mosaic

this was a very interesting dessert. It was ice cream inside, coated in a chocolate coating. The hot chocolate sauce next to it was meant to be poured onto this chocolate ball, and.. you will see the chocolate ball having its own mini ‘opening ceremony’ to reveal its hidden treasures inside

poured over

I spy with my eye

Of course I didn’t come all the way here without ordering the special Pleasure cake!!!

Pleasure cake

its quite a skill to cut through the layers without having layers of your cake breaking into different sizes and pieces. I loved the crunchy base and the layering of the chocolate, being held together with the hazelnut mousse was gave it an elegant touch.

Chocolate Souffle with Rasberry Sorbet

of course, not forgetting to order this special that took quite long to come (the best things in life is worth waiting for eh?) we were not disappointed.. but the friend that ordered this complained that it was abit too bitter for her taste – bitter in that it had too much cocoa powder..

I would return for my pleasure cake indulgence and chillax over a nice cup of tea while reading a good book.
