Thomas Trillion (Hong Kong, CHINA) ★★★★★

Of course, we won't be leaving Kowloon City without dropping by my favorite pastry shop, Thomas Trillion. 

Vanilla banana ($60) - After trying out two new items at Patisserie Tony Wong just an hour ago, we were ready to take on something new here as well. The Vanilla banana cake is one of their newest items and honestly, I couldn't tell whether they were trying to shape it like a pumpkin or xiao long bao. 

This is really really nice. I mean super nice! The vanilla chocolate mousse, caramelized banana and raspberry mousse and rich dark chocolate base combined for one of the most perfectly textured cake I've had all year. Yes, it's one of the most expensive piece of cakes in Hong Kong but it's definitely well worth the heavy price tag!

Passion fruit orange ($60) - I'm having this for the second time though this was a revised version.

I thought the light chocolate mousse was again silky smooth and the streusel base was nutty enough for my liking. But slightly disappointing was the fact that it didn't have the same lava effect from the passion fruit and orange flavored coulis like it did last time (Actually the coulis seemed to be missing). Instead there's just a piece of caramelized orange compote in the middle.

We had another satisfying time visiting Thomas Trillion this afternoon. The new vanilla banana cake was something special and it had my palate totally blown away.
