We may all be staying at home more for the time being, but that doesn’t mean that we can't still indulge a little. Since the new social distancing regulations came into place on July 15, restaurants may be closed for dinner, but businesses across the city have been pulling out all the stops to keep us satisfied at home.
From gourmet food takeout and delivery, to craft bottled cocktails, there’s plenty on offer—but for the sweet-toothed among up us, this is the list for you. Whether you’re craving ice cream, tiramisu, a show-stopping birthday cake, or a patisserie masterpiece, there’s a dessert delivery option for you:
1. Butterfly Patisserie, Rosewood Hong Kong
Rosewood's Butterfly Patisserie always delights with its signature afternoon tea and array of expertly crafted cakes, pastries and desserts—and the same experience can be enjoyed at home. Through Rosewood's online boutique, you can order a range of delectable desserts and artisan confections from resident pastry maestro, chef Holger Deh. Orders can either be picked up at the hotel, or delivered to addresses on Hong Kong Island, and in Kowloon and the New Territories (delivery fees apply).
The top pick for the season is the traditional Black Forest cake—made with Kirsch liqueur-infused chocolate sponge, a layer of sour cherry compote, Kirsch-infused cream, and finished with thin layers of dark chocolate—but there are plenty of other whole cakes, contemporary patisserie creations, chocolates and freshly-baked cookies to choose from.
