Paris come to Hong Kong - Eric Kayser and Laduree

Hong Kong must be an attractive place for foreign brands to do business. You don't need to look far to see people queueing up to go into flagship stores of Chanel, Louis Vuitton etc. You also get famous patisseries and bakeries from Paris setting up shops in Hong Kong. Maison du Chocolat, Jean Paul Hevin have been here for quite some time. Now we have two additions in TST.

Laduree - the name synonymous to macarons, has opened a shop in Harbour City in TST. Modelled in the exact same fashion as their Paris shops, the shop sits directly opposite a Prince Jewellery and Watches store. At 30 dollars a pop, you get to compare macarons made with 150 years of tradition vs all the pretenders to the crown.

Eric Kayser - a famous bakery chain had its grand opening in Jan, also in Harbour City.

Eaten fresh, Eric Kayser's bread are soft and tasty. Try its olive bread if you get a chance. Lunch menu is good value. The savoury dishes are cooked to a high standard and you get a basket of its bread selection. The optional desserts are great value for HK$20 additional but guess they can be better.

We wait for its Happy Valley branch to open in April, then we might get to try the crumbs!!
