There are lots of Japanese bakeries in Hong Kong and I love them all. My favorites are Panash and Little Mermaid Bakery. During my last trip I didn’t buy anything from Panash because of my diet. I tried to avoid Little Memaid too but for the sake of this blog I bought my favorite chocolate sticky donut so I could show you what it is.
From citysuper’s site:
Little Mermaid Bakery has more than 420 outlets in Japan and now several outlets in Hong Kong (IFC, Times Square, New Town Plaza and Harbour City stores). In fact, the very first Little Mermaid Bakery in the city was opened in city’super in IFC in 2003.
Famous for its products freshly baked on the premises, Little Mermaid’s most popular items include the authentic Parisian baguette, Milk Cream Snail, Camembert Cheese Bread and the range of Danish bakery goods such as the fresh fruit Danish pastries, Whole Wheat and Seven Grain breads and crusty Three Grain Rolls.
They have lots of tempting breads in the store but I only buy the chocolate sticky donut. These aren’t the traditional fried doughnuts that we are familiar with. These are really mochi or glutinous rice cakes made with chocolate dough and filled with chocolate ganache and sprinkled with cocoa powder.
