Ever ordered a dessert and wished you could take it home? Or hoped to satiate your sweet cravings without having to sit through a multi-course meal?

Look no further than The Landmark Mandarin Oriental and The Peninsula, which have put their desserts in the spotlight.

After the overwhelming response to LMO Freshly-Baked by Richard Ekkebus at the Landmark Christmas market in 2020, the hotel decided to relaunch the pop-up shop for another three months. On the menu are delicious chocolate moelleux, vanilla chouquette and flan Parisien with bourbon vanilla, including signatures like canelés, madeleines and pistachio cookies. What’s most amazing is that, true to its name, all creations are freshly made on the premises every hour.

The vanilla chouquette is one of pure indulgence where the wafer thin pastry bursts to the brim with rich vanilla cream. The pop-up at the Landmark might end by June, but all of the delicious baked goods will still be available on the LMO online store.

Across the harbour in Tsim Sha Tsui, The Peninsula Hong Kong has opened its doors to The Peninsula Boutique & Café. The 25-seat destination offers diners the hotel’s world-famous scones as well decadent tea sets.

On the menu are patisserie items such as French pastries, macaroons, cookies, parfait and mango pudding, as well as finger sandwiches and other savoury selections.

Guy Riddell, general manager, Peninsula Merchandising, said upon the opening of the new cafe: “We are delighted to have created this immersive and sophisticated lifestyle experience at The Peninsula Boutique & Café.”

Dark marble, teal and copper tones dominate the establishment. There’s a book store attached to the premises, transporting patrons to a literary world of lifestyle experiences.

Of course, just like the The Peninsula Boutique before, a selection of cake, tea, chocolates and more are available for guests to take home to savour as well.
