Cafe Landmark Hong Kong sits proudly above Bottega Veneta and other luxury brands inside The Landmark on 1/F The Landmark Atrium. Come here for an afternoon tea or coffee and bump elbows with celebrities and local elite. This cafe is the perfect marriage between chic and classic sophistication. I really wish I could show you the pictures to the Lobster Linguine and the salad we had, but all these days of rushing around Hong Kong landed with without batteries shortly after arriving. Perhaps you’d fancy some afternoon tea at Langham Hotel Hong Kong 朗廷酒店 instead?

Si Yik Cafe 泗益赤柱 down by Stanley Market hidden behind produce and tourists. This weathered cafe apparently is known for their pain perdu French Toast. If you aren’t chasing the rabbit, it can be easily missed. Deliberately missed too, mind you, for its filth and grim. Dave was determined to taste what the hype was all about.
I am certain that all sorts of health codes have been violated. The place is tattered and run down. But it does not stop traffic one bit. It is almost hard to find a seat. Everyone is ordering French Toast and instant noodles to go along with soda pops.
Pork Chop with Fried Egg Instant Noodles: Not sure what it is, but there is a certain fascination with Hong Kong cafes serving up instant noodles that makes regular egg noodles hard to complete with. The noodles were al dente and not soggy, such would if left under boiling hot water for too long. The pork chop was tender but very oily. The seasoning wasn’t particularly memorable and probably come from the residue built up over the years.
French Toast: ahhh, the infamous french toast smothered with butter and kaya spread. The kaya spread was less coconut-y that I envisioned but the toast itself was soft and moist, accompanied by a slight crunch.
Don’t forget to stretch your legs around the pier after being packed inside this tiny cafe. Don’t put your belongings on the floor and remember to keep it close to you.

Dazzling Cafe opened it’s first location outside of Asia in Richmond, BC. This uber cute and stylish cafe chain has locations in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia. They are famous for their honey toast which comes in a variety of flavors. The presentation is pretty and makes every Instagram moment.
I love the interior decor of this trendy cafe. It is filled with white and soft grey tones with accents marble and button tufted seats. Did I mention the bunny ear chairs? What a perfect place for afternoon high tea!
Although Dazzling Cafe is famous for their desserts, they also offer a wide selection of dishes like pasta, rice casseroles, pizza and snacks. Beverages include my favorite Earl Grey Black Milk Tea Latte, Royal Matcha Latte and Rose latte. Of course, there are also coffee, tea, fresh juices and slushies.
Entree prices ranges between $10 to $15 and portions are not enough to share. Honey Toasts are between $12 to $15. I would definitely recommend order a few dishes to share between friends if you are hungry and it is a good way to sample different flavors.
Rose Latte 6.50: A strongly fragrant latte with rose water. It is quite sweet and I would recommend requesting it half sweet.
Earl Grey Black Milk Tea 6.95: available in both cold or hot. I like the cold version now that the weather is quite warm outside. There is a nice balance of tea and milk.
Truffle Fries 8.50: Crispy fries with a nice subtle hint of truffle oil that is not overwhelmingly intruding. A good snack to start while you wait for the rest of the food.
Mentaiko Spaghetti with Cream Sauce 明太子義大利麵 11.50: This was everyone’s favorite dish on the table. I love the silky creaminess of the mentaiko sauce with a nice subtle briny flavor. The pasta was also al dente.
Spicy Spaghetti with Chicken 辣味雞肉義大利麵 11.50: I like the subtle heat of this pasta this that lingers in your mouth for a while.
Month Blanc Honey Toast 15: This boxed toast is literally a butter toasted bread dessert that is hollowed out, cut into cubed pieces, buttered and toasted. These cubed pieces are then placed back inside the break box along with ice cream, whipped cream. The honey toast is then topped with different fruits and flavors for presentation. There is tableside service at Dazzling Cafe. I like the light sweetness of this chestnuts, whipped cream and the caramelized bread box that is suitable for the Asian palate.
Dazzling Cafe is a great location to catch up with friends over dessert. If you don’t have a sweet tooth that is ok too since they have a lot of savory food options. I like the relaxing environment and the pretty girly decor. I would not recommend this place if you are in a hurry however. Food takes a while to arrive. If you are a Women of Leisure, by all means, you have nothing to worry about 🙂

Lucky Dessert Hong Kong 發記甜品 is one my friend highly recommended us to try. She told us to add this to our list of “to eat Hong Kong” because the Mango Pomelo Sago dessert is delicious. Plus they give you half a mango. That sounds pretty decent size. One thing about travelling is that you can go to a normally busy restaurant during off hours on a weekday and avoid the crowd! Plus, we can take our time eating, resting our feet without our food taken away.
Mango Pomelo Sago Dessert 楊枝甘露: Served cold with visible sago and pomelo and half a mango. It was very tasty and not too sweet. I can see why my friend raves about Lucky Dessert Hong Kong. Lucky Dessert has several locations in Mong Kong, Causeway Bay, Tsim Sha Tsui, etc. They take cash only.
