In a world where I dedicate my life to achieving my dreams, eating dessert before dinner makes total sense. It is a dream. Besides, I am an adult, most of the time, and can make my own decisions about what I ingest, even if it is a entire meal dedicated to sugar. Luckily, dessert always comes first at Hong Kong’s Dessert Kitchen. I like their style.
Hong Kong is known for its cutting edge food concepts and The Dessert Kitchen was one I wish I had invented. Or at least that every city had one. Simply genius.
It is a trendy little cafe that sells nothing but unique sweet treats, at just about any time of the day.
Yep. A kitchen dedicated soley to desserts. This may be slightly better than a room filled with puppies licking my face.
When we arrived at The Dessert Kitchen, in the late afternoon, there was only one other table indulging. We were told to find a seat and handed a thick menu filled with enticing photographs to accompany the briefest of menu descriptions. It was filled with the prettiest parfaits, sundaes and puddings.
We chose two for our meal, the Joy of the Party and a Blueberry Kiss. Plus one fresh Watermelon and one Peach slush. An entire dessert meal without any chocolate. Tsk. Tsk.
The Blueberry Kiss was a masterpiece of flavored shaved ice surrounded by fresh blueberries, mochi ice cream and jellied pearls that popped in your mouth.
It would make for the perfect summer refreshment, not to sweet or heavy.
The Joy of the Party sundae wasn’t like any of hot fudge ones I had eaten before. No fudge. And I kind of missed it. It was ice cream layered with corn flakes and small jelly balls.
After finishing our dessert dinner we headed out and had to squeeze our way through the line forming at the door. It is that good.
Though next time, I am going to swap my sundae for the housemade waffles that I saw blanketing the tables.
–Have you ever been to a kitchen dedicated soley to dessert?
