Passion by Gérard Dubois Central (Hong Kong, CHINA) ★★★☆☆

I told myself to cut down on the consumption of moon cakes this year and so far, I have done a pretty nice job. As of today, only 6 moon cakes under my belt which is a fairly impressive record for me, comparing to my all-time record of 10 boxes (40 moon cakes) back when I was still in Vancouver. I should have done my dietitian proud.  

Oh but wait, chocolate moon cakes.....I guess another one won't make too much difference, right?


I can't recall whether this is my first time visiting Passion by Gérard Dubois in Central. I think it is.....

This chocolate moon cake comes with 3 kinds of nuts (peanuts, hazelnuts and almond) on top. Very nutty on the outside which is good. The "egg yolk" is infused passion fruit and it was a little too strong. Think I will prefer the traditional type of moon cake over this one.

Didn't I have this baby a long time ago - La Boule cerise with morello cherry and white chocolate mousse? The morello cherry seemed to be a tad too rich for the white chocolate mousse.

The earl grey and pear provided the only bright spot here.

One of the few times that Passion failed to deliver.
