Paul Lafayet (Hong Kong)- Artisanal Pastries in HK

When I was
in Tsim Sha Tsui in Hong Kong, I stumbled upon this French patisserie called Paul
Lafayet. One quick glance at the display case proved no match for my willpower
so I had no choice but to give some of their sweets a try. 😛 Luckily, I was
with my friend Trixie who also has quite a large appetite.

The main
reason we ‘stumbled’ upon this patisserie was because we noticed the crowd of
people in the front.
The sold a
variety of macarons and artisanal pastries. We took forever to choose because every
single dessert looked soooo delicious.
We decided
to share a
Passion Fruit macaron and Chocolate & Blueberry Dome. One
taste of the passion fruit macaron and it became my favourite macaron of all
time. I always though macarons tasted okay when I tried them at Thierry or
other high tea places, however, this one tasted really really delicious!

I came back
to Paul Lafayet on two separate occasions as I was in love with their desserts.
On my second visit, I bought a
and another Chocolate &
Blueberry Dome
to go. The chocolate and blueberry dome was very velvety and
rich as it was covered in a deep dark chocolate ganache (my favourite).
The crème brulee
comes in a beautiful ceramic dish and if you order it to go, they give it to
you as well with no deposit fee.
On my third
visit, I ordered the crème brulee (again) because it was just. That. Good. My
one criticism would be the surface as I would have wanted a thicker layer of
sugar to ‘crack’.
The Chocolate Gold Dust Heart at first
looked super sketch because I didn’t know if it would taste good beneath all
that red colouring and gold dust. However, the mousse inside was actually
really good since they used 71% pure Venezuelan chocolate.
I thought
Lychee macaron (left) was a bit too
sweet and it failed to compare with the passion fruit macaron I had two visits
ago. The
Oolong macaron (right) on the other
hand was pretty good with deep tea flavours infused into the shell and a tasty
white chocolate oolong ganache inside.
Happy Eating!

    Not really expensive compared to the pastries and desserts here ($5 CAD/US)? Is that expensive compared to the pastries in the Netherlands?

    You weren't kidding when you said you went here too! What did you end up doing with the ceramic dish?

    Just washed and kept it for future homemade creme brûlée-ness 😀

    We would pay similar prices for those pastries and desserts, I think. You don't see many of these stores in the Netherlands tho. We have more of those "chocolate bon-bon" stores, which sell all kinds of little chocolates, but no creme-brulee or macarons. 😉
