Happy birthday to me!! I’m a chocoholic and anything from these stores would make the perfect gift. But maybe next year since I’m on a diet and I haven’t eaten chocolates for six months, except for cheating with a few squares. Oh how I miss you, chocolates!!
The residents of Hong Kong are very lucky that two of the world’s best brands of high end chocolates have branches in Hong Kong.
If you are a chocoholic like me and can afford to pay for the best quality then these stores are for you. The first is Jean-Paul Hevin. I’ve never tried anything from this store but every time I pass by their store in Harbour City I never fail to gaze longingly at their display.
They have so many chocolate creations that I always get confused and can’t decide what to try first so I end up not buying anything. Will I buy a Lollipop Bouchée, Tubes, Pastes or Rounds? Yes that’s what their chocolates are called. Unique huh?
I loved the fillings of the macarons. They were rich, creamy and intense. I just found the almond meringue shell to be quite soft and too delicate. I wanted something thicker, crisp with a chewy bite. But then I’m not a macaron expert since it’s not really a favorite of mine.
Their chocolates on the other hand were simply wonderful. I didn’t even have patience to take pictures since I gobbled them up rather quickly. If I remember right the chocolates and macarons cost HK$20 each. Yes mahal.
