5 epic Hong Kong desserts you need to try ASAP

It seems summer is finally over. The long, humid days have given way to cooler nights, and we’ve got our fingers crossed that sweater weather is around the corner. And over-sized clothes aren’t just for warmth, they give you that little bit of extra room for a dessert or two. This month, don’t waste those precious after-dinner bites on just any pudding, save them for the best.

Read on to find out the five desserts we can’t wait to dig in to.

The only thing better than a good cocktail is a good cake. And the only thing better than a good cake is a delicious, booze-laden cake, now available at Dr. Fern’s Gin Parlour. The doctor has teamed up with The Cakery to create two organic, sugar-free, gluten-free and vegan-friendly cupcakes, with gin of course. There’s a Chocolate & Gin flavour, infused with Whitley Neill Sicilian blood orange gin, and an Avocado & Gin, made with a small-batch botanical gin and creamy avocado.

Both cupcakes are a limited time offer and available for HK$65.

Executive chef Daniel Calvert is known for his meticulously presented dishes and exacting pastry work. This autumn, the one-starred savant outdoes himself with a delicate preserved pear millefeuille. The seasonal variation is set to become a Hong Kong-favourite, as most of Calvert’s creations are!

It’s delicious all year long, but there’s something especially moreish about a rich slice of carrot cake on a cool autumn evening. We love Carbone Hong Kong’s version, served with that special dramatic flair the restaurant is known for. It’s hard to save room for the sweets at this restaurant, but trust us – it’s worth it.

Few things in life are as devilishly indulgent (or satisfying) as a rich, molten chocolate cake. And no one does it better than Morton’s the Steakhouse. Their legendary Hot Chocolate Cake is a Hong Kong-favourite, and for good reason. Pro-tip: don’t offer to share.

Here’s one for the gluten-free crowd: an ultra-decadent, flourless almond citrus cake at Posto Pubblico. Each slice is topped with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream, making it the perfect treat after a long day. Dig in guilt-free, because everyone deserves something sweet once in a while.
