La Famillie (Hong Kong, CHINA) ★★★☆☆

La Famillie, the beloved chiffon cake specialist from Tai Hang has finally arrived in Tsim Sha Tsui as a pop-up store at Harbour City last month.

Heard this was part of the festivity from Le French GourMay Hong Kong but it really didn't matter what the reason behind was. The comforting fact is that I no longer need to venture over to Tai Hang for their fluffy chiffon cakes (well, as long as their pop-up lasts), which often poses a bit of a challenge for me because it closes at 7PM.

The owner and patissier of this chiffon cake specialty store honed his skills back in Tokyo. Where you ask? Of course, none other than La Famille, a famous chiffon cake shop in Ikebukuro. This is a place that only uses some of the best milk products from Hokkaido which explains why the chiffon cakes are so airy and fluffy. At their new pop-up location, the chiffon cakes come in 16 different flavors and toppings.

I had the pleasure of checking out the Earl Grey flavor and the texture was so soft and pillowy, both signs of a very good chiffon cake. For $48 a piece, I would most definitely be back for more!

Food Rating: 5/10
Price: $$$
Address: Kiosk 3E, 3/F, Gateway Arcade, Harbour City, 17 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
