Last October I was looking at openrice.com trying to find new places in Hong Kong to try when I saw Crumbs on the top ten list of most searched restaurants. Since I loved scones I went to buy some the next day.
I went to their branch in Mongkok since that was the most convenient to me.
There were only 3 flavors of scones to choose from and you had to buy a minimum of 3 pieces of any flavor.
I had my share of samples specially when their backs were turned.
According to their web site the scones are baked fresh every ten minutes.
I loved the scones! The cheese scones contained a generous quantity of Australian parmesan cheese. The texture was very crumbly but not dry. It was incredibly buttery. My only gripe was they were too small for the price. A cheese scone costs HK$7 each. The three scones below were on a typical Corelle 6 3/4 bread plate. I could easily eat a whole scone in two bites. But to prolong my pleasure I took little pinches of the scone and savored all the flavor and butter worth $7.
The chocolate scones, also HK$7, were loaded with chocolate chips. I couldn’t decide which flavor I liked more. Having both cheese and chocolate together was really just perfect. Cheese scones for the main snack and chocolate scones for the dessert snack. I didn’t buy any raisin scones to try.
Crumbs also sold frozen yogurt but I skipped that since I’ve had my share of frozen yogurt in Manila. There’s also a craze for frozen yogurt in Hong Kong with several brands popping up left and right.
