SWEET SPOTS

Creative mix

 

With three locations in Hong Kong, it's fair to say that Greyhound Café's Thai cuisine with innovative twists has become a popular choice for food lovers in the city. The Greyhound's décor characterises Bangkok - mixing modern and traditional art. The food is creative, with fresh ingredients from Thailand blending with familiar dishes from around the world, such as crispy ravioli with shrimp and Thai spice filling (HK$68), foie gras toast (HK$108) and noodles with Thai duck stew (HK$98).

The desserts will have you coming back for more such as the chocolate banana crêpe cake (HK$68) which oozes with cream between layers of bananas and crêpes, drizzled with chocolate sauce.

CHIC TREAT

 

Uber-trendy cocktail bar-cum-nightclub Armani/Privé offers global glam inside and out, with its Chinese fire red-meets-sleek Milan décor and a chill-out terrace overlooking Central's iconic skyscrapers. The dining is just as cool as its image, with desserts to die for.

The strawberries and cream (HK$108) at Armani/Prive was originally created for the Aqua Shard menu in London, but proved so popular that it is now served in Hong Kong at Armani/Prive and Armani/Aqua. With a shortbread base, the dessert includes strawberry marshmallows and rosewater jelly cubes as well as strawberries and ice cream. It's not to be missed.
