A prestigious baker in Hong Kong runs the shop. Deng Xiaoping hire the baker of this store to make his ninety years old birthday cake.
They make really good cakes. It's soft, airy and moist. It's not too sweet, it's just right, perfect! It's better than Maxim's (richmond centre) cake. Maxim's cake is kind of dry and kind of too sweet (maybe), it gagged me and stuck in my throat once. LOL! I had to drink something to wash it down.
Pastries are very good too.
The store is clean and the service is OK (they are neither friendly nor mean, just stone-faced, that's all, not that bad), transaction is smooth.
Price is fair except the buns are kind of expensive considering how small they are and the filling inside is little.
I went here for the first time on Tuesday as I had guest coming for dinner. I made a selection of three slices of cake, two mouses and a mocha cake.
I was excited about them as were my guests when they saw them, they looked beautiful.
Well that ended quickly when we ate them. The cakes all had a layer of some sort of gummy bear stuff on top of it and the cakes were all dry and not very good at all.
In fact, I had some of each of the mouses and ended up throwing mine in the garbage...
I will not return.
