Zoe
Shop 6 Sunning Plaza, 10 Hysan Avenue
Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
2234 7188


After shopping at Jardine’s Bazaar, we stopped over at this small and well hidden café for a afternoon tea break.


There are many cakes and pastries on display. Everything looks so delicious!


The signature Zoe (HKD$30+/SGD$5.40+) is actually named after the owner. This is the birthday cake for Zoe’s 18th birthday. The mousse is very light and smooth and the crispy biscuit base gives it a nice texture.


The staff recommended 1459 (HKD$30+/SGD$5.40+) which is a mille fouille. Apparently, there are 1459 layers of thin puff pastry sheets sandwiching the custard cream in between. I’m quite skeptical about the 1459 layers but nevertheless, this is good!

The Mud Cake (HKD$30+/SGD$5.40+) is awesome. It’s dark, rich and moist—qualities which a good chocolate muddy cake should have.


My mom has the single shot of Espresso (HKD$33+/SGD$6+) which comes in a cute little cup. She even asked me if we can bring the cup home.


Likewise, my dad’s Macchiato (HKD$33+/SGD$6+) looks cute. Both coffees are freshly brewed and taste very strong and bitter.

The cafe was packed when we were there.

To say that the food and drinks come in tiny sizes is an understatement. For the prices paid, I expected a little more. The quality is certainly high enough but the quantity really leaves much to be desired. Nontheless, I think the cakes here are really fantastic and it’s hard to find such good western desserts in Hong Kong.

WELCOME!

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
