AnOther Sweet Place (Hong Kong, CHINA) ★★★☆☆

Last week I was reading about Another Place joining force with local chocolatier and pâtissier Jeffery Koo on a new project in Central. I decided to dig a little deeper on the mighty internet and looks like I got exactly what I was looking for - AnOther Sweet Place

Located just a stone's throw from Tai Cheong Bakery (泰昌餅家) and Lan Fong Yuen (蘭芳園) in the Lyndhurst Terrace area, Another Sweet Place becomes the newest French patisserie in trying to crack the lineup of top dessert spots in Central.

Despite being the new kid on the block, the little French patisserie did not go unnoticed. By the time I got settled down and started shooting pictures, the place was already filled up with potential customers.

More and more local cafes are starting to serve up artisanal ice-cream and looks like Another Sweet Place is getting themselves ready too!

Cheshire Cat ($46) - I was all set to go with the Signature Noir 65 first but then again I wasn't a chocolate lover to begin with, so let's go a different route. Cheshire Cat ended up being a solid choice for me. The combination of a velvety mixed berries mousse, 29 percent white chocolate and vanilla sponge provided an excellent balance of sweetness and acidity and the purple glaze was a nice touch.

Midsummer Night's Dream ($46) - Better was this fierce red creation with caramel and dulcey chocolate. The silky smooth mousse worked perfectly well with the pineapple compote providing my sweet tooth with quite a special treat.

Matcha opera ($50) - Chef Koo's opera cake has a pretty rich matcha flavor along with a slightly crunchy texture. A nice change of pace from the previous two pastries which were a little more fruity.
