Top 10 Instagram Worthy Dessert Spots in Hong Kong

The next list on my Top 10 Hong Kong series is DESSERTS! Here's my list of the 10 best dessert shops with sweet creations that both look and taste good to hit up in Hong Kong - prepare for sugar overload!

Oddies Foodies

Oddies Foodies has been delighting Hong Kong with its innovative dessert creations since the beginning with the Night Wolf - a dark chocolate twist gelato combined with chocolate chip eggettes. The new shop in Central has even more gelato to choose from with 12 kinds of interesting flavors and the latest "dramacone" series (giant ice cream cones) are sure to be a hit with the cameras!

33 Gough Street, Central

Via Tokyo

Via Tokyo is not the only shop in town serving Japanese flavored ice cream but has stood out from competition with its consistent quality and reasonable prices. Besides the signature matcha soft serve, other limited time only flavors like houjicha, royal milk tea and sesame are huge hits as well. There is almost always a queue at Via Tokyo but here's a tip - walk past the lines for sit-in and get your ice cream to go!

106-126 Leighton Road, Causeway Bay
29 Cameron Road, Tsim Sha Tsui

Cobo House by 2am: Dessert Bar

Singaporean dessert queen and two-time winner of Asia's Best Pastry Chef Janice Wong descended into Hong Kong with Cobo House by 2am:dessertbar where she showcases her signature edible art desserts along with a full-blown savory food menu for the first time. The desserts in particular are mesmerizing to look at and delightful to eat especially the Tsujirihei Green Tea Tart, Chocolate H2O and Cassis Plum which was featured in MasterChef Australia!

8-12 South Lane, Shek Tong Tsui
Tel: +852 2656 3088

Nakamura Tokichi 中村藤吉

Japanese dessert lovers will not be unfamiliar with Nakamura Tokichi (a renowned tea house from Kyoto) and one of the most sought-after item here is the warabimochi while other desserts like its soft service, maruto parfait and kakigori are also wildly popular. Besides desserts, the cafe also offers savory dishes like matcha udon noodles so you can satisfy your matcha craving all in one go!

Shop 3005-9, 3/F, Miramar Shopping Centre 
132 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui

Lady M

Lady M has built quite a strong following with its fresh handmade cakes in New York, Los Angeles and even in Asia, so it came as no surprise when the cake shop generated long queues in Hong Kong when it first opened (which has since been alleviated by an online ordering system). Prices may not be cheap but the high quality of the cakes is worth the splurge and the Mille Crepes with its paper-thin layers are to die for!

Level 2, Ocean Terminal, Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui
Shop No. 2096A, IFC, 8 Finance Street, Central
1-3 Cleveland Street, Causeway Bay

ATUM Desserant is an elegant dessert lounge that serves desserts which look more like abstract art paintings. All of its desserts have its own unique contemporary presentation and created on the spot so no two desserts look alike. Grab a friend to share the "Improvisation" which is meant for two and witness an edible art piece come to life!

16/F, The L. Square, 459-461 Lockhart Road, Causeway Bay
Shop B101, Level 1, K11, 18 Hanoi Road, Tsim Sha Tsui

Breaking the code of traditional pastry, L'Eclair de Genie offers contemporary eclairs in a wide range of flavors including passion fruit, salted caramel, yuzu, chocolate, matcha, and many more.

Lab Made Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream Laboratory

As Hong Kong's first liquid nitrogen ice cream maker, Lab Made has reinvented ice cream with innovative flavors that cater to the locals in the city. Who knew that you can have iconic HK desserts like sesame tofu pudding and custard egg yolk buns as ice cream flavors? It's fun to watch the ice cream being made with smoke spilling everywhere and as the menu changes every 2 weeks, you never know what new cool flavors Lab Made will come up with!

6 Brown Street, Tai Hang
I See I See serves up beautifully handcrafted ice pops made with real fruit juices and creative ingredients such as earl grey pistachio and Hoegarden beer! Prices can be a bit high but there's something irresistible about these colorful and gorgeous ice pops in the summer that will work wonders in cooling you down right away. 

138 Leighton Road, Causeway Bay

Elephant Grounds

Elephant Grounds is best known for its seductive ice cream sandwich flavors that changes weekly but they have wide offerings in coffee and savory food as well at the Wong Chuk Hang and Causeway Bay branches. Aside from ice cream sandwiches, ice cream by itself is also available at the CWB branch and my favorite is the Thai ice tea flavor!

11 Gough Street, Sheung Wan
1/F The Factory, 1 Yip Fat Street, Wong Chuk Hang
42-28 Patterson Street, Fashion Walk, Causeway Bay
