Hong Kong dessert craze hits mid­town

Annex Post - - FOOD -

New Asian-in­spired dessert spots are pop­ping up all over the place, from North York (Chi Patis­serie and Bake Code, to name a few) all the way to One Pear Cafe and Daan Go south of Bloor. This Novem­ber, Yonge and Eglin­ton wel­comes Toronto’s sec­ond lo­ca­tion of Hong Kong–based pur­veyor of de­lec­ta­ble treats HK Sweets at 2375 Yonge St. The shop, which chose mid­town

in or­der to serve cus­tomers who may not have tried sim­i­lar cui­sine be­fore,

cre­ates au­then­tic Hong Kong–style desserts and savoury fu­sion food. Who could say no to a trio of sweet dessert pan­cakes — mango, kiwi and straw­berry — paired with matcha soft serve? Or per­haps a colour­ful shaved ice dessert with heaps of ly­chee jelly, mini mochis, fresh fruit and more.

IN­TER­NA­TIONAL TASTES HK Sweets also serves Tai­wanese bub­ble tea and Ital­ian soda.
