Fine Foods (Hong Kong, CHINA) ★★★☆☆

It's always nice to take a friday off every now and then. After an early lunch and a bit of Christmas shopping, I decided to sit down and do what the rich housewives love to do - a little afternoon tea.

Looks like Fine Foods is all geared up for Christmas.

Having been here more than a zillion times, I have to say I pretty much tried most of their creations by now, with the exception of these two which I was pretty sure that they were new.


Now let me grab a seat while they get my pastries and tea ready.

Fig and passion fruit mousse cake - We all heard about this cliche before, "looks can be deceiving". While I like the presentation of this fig and passion fruit mousse cake, I did have trouble finding any trace of fig or passion fruit in there. Very bland and without much sweetness or acidity. A real disappointing effort there.

Chocolate mousse cake with orange - This was much much better. 

A silky smooth chocolate mousse layered between chocolate cake and some orange compote. Tasted a lot like my favorite Jacob orange biscuit (but in a good way).
