Egg Waffle Soft Serve

Gone are the days where Hong Kongers are limited to their traditional desserts of egg waffles and glutinous rice balls. It is fair to say that the multifaceted global city has progressively embraced the influences of the West and its other Asian neighbours over the past decades. Today, modern civilians of Hong Kong are spoilt for choice when it comes to desserts.

Get ready to be blown away by Atum Desserant’s Improvisation. The massive edible sweet masterpiece is a far cry from the traditional gelato – and that is what makes it even all the more exciting!

While ice cream is not the sole ingredient in Atum Desserant’s Improvisation (HK $328+ / S$60.25+), liquid nitrogen ice cream is still included in this jaw-dropping dessert. Do bear in mind that the price is meant for two diners and includes juices and coffee/tea.

Tucked away at the back of a retail store called WOAW! is Elephant Grounds, a tiny hipster cafe renowned for their excellent coffees and ice cream sandwiches (the tasty dessert is only served on Fridays to Sundays).

We had the Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies Sandwich (HK$68 / S$12.50) but note that flavours change on a weekly basis. Their new outlet offers ice cream sandwiches during weekdays, so drop by The Factory instead to fix those Monday blues.
