Express Bar by Lassana (Hong Kong, CHINA) ★★★☆☆

Kwun Tong has traditionally been a very difficult place to find quality French pastries but Express Bar by Lassana managed to change that recently. Billed primarily as a coffee shop, Express Bar now also doubles as a cake shop offering us some heartwarming choices of French style cakes including this 4 1/2-inch cake.

This mousse cake ($138) comes in two flavors, white chocolate mint (in a bright red color) and caramel (see below). Since I am a caramel freak, this is really a no-brainer for me. The caramel chocolate mousse was so smooth and rich, combining well with the chocolate sponge cake on the bottom. I particularly like the crunchy caramel bits in the middle giving it just enough bite. 

Now that Kwun Tong has finally got some seriously good French pastries, we don't have to rush all the way to Tsim Sha Tsui or Central for our sweet treat now!
