We absolutely loved the dessert in Hong Kong. Here you’ll find something to please everyone, from egg waffles to ice cream to egg tarts and so much more. There’s traditional desserts and modern desserts, and something to try at any hour of the day. So where to find the best dessert in Hong Kong? Here’s our favourite picks…
Oddies Foodies is extremely popular but for good reason. This store on Gough Street has delicious egg waffles but it’s perhaps their toppings that make them look and taste oh so good! We had the ‘Night Wolf’ which is chocolate chip egg waffles topped with Italian soft gelato, dark chocolate, buttery crumbles, caramelised banana ice cream, passion fruit panna cotta, brownie and crunchy flakes. Yum! They also have other desserts here too… but I challenge you to go past this one ;)

LKK North Point Egg Waffles
Egg Waffles are a delicious Hong Kong dessert that you have to experience. LKK North Point Egg Waffles have many locations, with the original in North Point touted to be the best. We gave them a try in Tsim Sha Tsui and loved them. You will have to wait in line for maybe 15 minutes or so, but it’s worth it.

Everyday 11 AM – 11 PM
Another great place to try egg waffles! It’s so hard to choose a favourite as I loved all the egg waffles I tried but there was something special about Mammy Pancake. We had original and chocolate chip, both delicious. Again, there are multiple locations but we tried them at their Tsim Sha Tsui branch.

Tai Cheong Bakery
The most famous egg tarts in Hong Kong are from Tai Cheong Bakery. There will most likely be a line… but food lines are perhaps the only ones I’m usually happy to wait in ;) Ok, within reason. The egg tarts here are usually fresh out of the oven, filled with an egg custard surrounded by a buttery pastry. Delicious! If you’re going to Macau, definitely have some of the Portuguese style egg tarts there too.
35 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central (multiple locations)
Everyday 7.30 AM – 9 PM
Lab Made Ice Cream
Liquid nitrogen ice cream is not a new thing but Lab Made do it so well. They have great flavour combinations and a beautiful creamy texture. I love the strawberry cheesecake flavour.
6 Brown Street, Tai Hang
Monday – Friday 2 PM – 12 AM + Saturday 1 PM – 12 AM + Sunday 1 PM – 11 PM
Via Tokyo is all about Japanese matcha desserts. One of their most popular desserts is the matcha ice cream which is made from Japanese matcha powder and Hokkaido milk. We tried the half matcha ice cream and half Hokkaido milk ice cream because matcha can be strong, and it was great.

Sunday – Thursday 11 AM – 10.30 PM + Friday – Saturday 11 AM – 11 PM
I See I See
We stumbled across I See I See and couldn’t resist the beautiful handcrafted icy desserts. They have delicious milk and fruit based ice blocks with no added preservatives or colouring. I love their Earl Grey Pistachio flavour.

Smile Yoghurt & Dessert Bar
If you’re a fan of frozen yoghurt then I’m sure you’ll love Smile Yoghurt. Here they have delicious layered frozen yoghurt. Depending on what flavour you choose, you will have lots of crunchy bits, sweet sauces and many other bits! We got ours in a cone and still had lots of the delicious toppings.

Everyday 1 PM – 10.30 PM
Tsui Wah is a Cha Chaan Teng, which means Tea Restaurant and is a Hong Kong style diner. The food here can be from a mixed cuisine and is probably unlike any dining experience you may have had before. One thing we loved was having a Hong Kong style milk tea with a crispy bun drizzled with condensed milk. A simple yet delicious dessert in Hong Kong, available 24 hours a day.
G/F-2/F, 15-19 Wellington St., Central (multiple locations)
I fell in love with Teakha the moment I saw it. It’s a beautiful cafe serving delicious tea and cakes. Their cakes are made from locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. The menu often features things like cheesecakes, pound cakes and scones.
Shop B, 18 Tai Ping Shan Street, Sheung Wan
