After the rice roll dinner, my foodie aunt decided to take me to Kowloon City for dessert.. the night turned out to be a foodie journey!
Smile is opened by Tony Wong (of Patisserie Tony Wong), who’s famous for his artisan cakes… but I have yet to try it…
We opted to sit at the dessert bar and have our dessert prepared on the spot! My aunt has been here a couple times and had seen Tony make the dessert personally; unfortunately, Tony made an appearance as we were leaving. Also, the dessert offered at the bar is not available for take-away at the yogurt counter.
Dear Meringue (fresh fruit Pavola with Floating Island)… I love Pavola and this version was really good! The meringue outer shell was very crispy! The creamy interior was sweet but the sweetness was balanced out by the slightly sour passion fruit sauce! Another ball of meringue was floating on a pool of white chocolate sauce, which I used to dip the fruits in!
Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate (Manjari Chocolate and Raspberry Dome with White Chocolate ice-cream and Warm Chocolate Milk) …. The chocolate dome was very rich, yet not overly sweet, and with a hint of fruitiness. The ice-cream had a strong white-chocolate taste and could balance out the bitterness of the cake. The cup of chocolate milk was so rich, it tasted like melted chocolate! Yumm!
The cakes are so artistically presented (and delicious),it could give the high-end hotels and restaurants a run for their money! It was so worth the $88HKD + 10% service charge. I also wanted to try the yogurt but we decided to buy the yogurt takeaway because it is $10HKD cheaper than eating it at the bar!
The Garden yogurt (from the bottom, strawberry meringue, yogurt,home-made crumbs, yogurt, lychee rose sauce, yogurt, and topped with osmanthus jelly, passion fruit twister crunch and home-made raspberry pocky) .. … This yogurt was $45!! This is a lot more expensive than your standard $28-$30 cup of regular-sized yogurt.. but this was so worth it! The ingredients used are top-notch quality and are not available at other fro-yo shops. The yogurt is presented artistically, with centrepieces of crisp & pocky and the yogurt is intertwined between the ingredients. This cup of yogurt is a piece of edible art!
FAIM? OUI OUI!!
