Café Deco Bar & Grill has made some refurbishments that include the introduction of a mini pâtisserie on the second floor that offers sweet treats to eat in or take out. Executive pastry chef Julien Gourmelon has revamped the dessert menu and chocoholics may want to check out one of his latest creations, the world's first 125 per cent chocolate Valrhona P125 chocolate soufflé (HK$98). The French chocolate maker has added more cocoa to go beyond 100 per cent, creating an even more intense flavour. The end result is pure chocoholic heaven, accompanied with coconut crumble and tangerine-rambutan sorbet. Bernice Chan

Hong Kong diners love tiramisu. It's something about the combination of mascarpone cheese, coffee, amaretto-soaked lady fingers and fresh cream that makes this Italian dessert a mainstay of many restaurants around town, Italian or not. Arguably the best in the city is on the 102nd floor of The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong. The Tosca Tiramisu (HK$120) uses the same ingredients along with almond cookies, but the secret ingredient is an Italian egg, giving it a beautiful yellow colour. Or perhaps eating it at such great heights takes your breath away.
