From Vi­enna, With Love

HK Magazine - - DINING - Edited by Les­lie Yeh

The lat­est big-name col­lab­o­ra­tion from the Man­darin Ori­en­tal (5 Con­naught Rd., Cen­tral, 2522-0111) has our sweet tooth fired up—a part­ner­ship with the world-fa­mous Café Cen­tral in Vi­enna to bring over tra­di­tional Vi­en­nese cakes and pas­tries, along­side pre­mium cof­fee from Aus­trian spe­cialty roaster Julius Meinl. From now un­til June 20, guests at the Clip­per Lounge and Café Causette can sa­vor the best of Café Cen­tral’s ar­ti­sanal pas­tries, from an al­mond-filled mohr im hemd cake to the famed sacher­torte, guar­an­teed to in­duce choco­late-re­lated eu­pho­ria. Barista Wolf­gang Eisler from Julius Meinl has also brought over a sam­pling of tra­di­tional Vi­en­nese cof­fees (from $68)—giv­ing our cus­tom­ary af­ter­noon “tea” a Euro­pean twist. Pre­fer to in­dulge in pri­vate? Or­der take­away slices ($48) or whole cakes ($888 for 3lb) from the Man­darin Cake Shop.
