Best Pastry

  1. Bakehouse (Eaters' Choice)

    You'd recognise Bakehouse for the cobalt blue paper bags with orange handles that are toted around the Soho slopes, but you'd love Bakehouse for its signature sourdough egg tarts, ingeniously ideated by renowned pastry chef and baker Gregoire Michaud. Make a stop for the doughnuts, too. It’ll be worth it.

    - Bakehouse, (various locations), 14 Tai Wong St E, Wan Chai, Hong Kong

  2. La Viña

    Sometime during the middle of 2021, basque burnt cheesecakes became a Thing. A verydelicious Thing that the city seemed to can't get enough of, for it inspired the birth of La Viña, which brings the original Spanish San Sebastián recipe to Hong Kong. From the original soft centre cheese, the bakery has since expanded to new flavour profiles like matcha, gingerbread and mixed berries.

    - La Viña, Shop 3, 23 Graham Street, near, Wellington St, Central, Hong Kong, +852 9612 0988

  3. Maria’s Bakery

    Maria's Bakery began in 1966 in Hong Kong. At its peak, it expanded with 60 outlets around Hong Kong before unfortunately closing in 1998. As the first local bakery serving Western pastries, Maria popularised the classic mango cake and chestnut cake that is widely enjoyed today and was a beloved destination for egg tarts, egg waffles and muffins. Think you've missed this time-honoured spot? They've recently opened as 1966 Baking Alliance in the refurbished Central Market.

    - Maria's Bakery, (various locations), Shop A ,G/F Heung Lam Building 23 Connaught Road, Hong Kong, +852 2525 8841

  4. Dang Wen Li by Dominique Ansel

    Dominique Ansel's flaky DKA is a favourite in itself: buttery pastry, airy bite and a caramelised crust. But when it made its debut in Hong Kong as Dang Wei Li by Dominique Anesel, it took on a very Hong Kong influence, unveiling a list of pastries modelled after many Hong Kong icons: Coconut and passionfruit cake in the shape of a pineapple bun, a milk tea cookie shot shaped as a Yakult and an earl grey bergamot cake Lemon Tea juice box.

    - Dang Wen Li by Dominique Ansel, (various locations), Ocean Terminal, Harbour City, 3-27 Canton Road, Hong Kong Shop OT G63A, G/F, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong, +852 2613 8618

  5. Paul Lafayet

    No, it's not just Paul Lafayet's macarons that has earned the patisserie its status as an acclaimed favourite in Hong Kong (though they are delicious and we'd recommend the Rose and Salted Caramel as top favourites), it's their crème brûlée, too. Haven't had it? Get in an order now, they're on FoodPanda!

  6. Jouer

    Jouer's cakes are not just pretty to look at — they're delicious too. Made according to classic French recipes, the cakes here are decadent creations of five beautiful, even layers that change consistently with the season. Favourites include a red velvet cake encased in blue swirl marble, or during the summer: strawberry lemonade.
