Following his success in Paris and Tokyo, the ‘Picasso of Pastry’ chose Hong Kong’s ifc mall to open his first boutique, and the one in Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong inaugurated in the beginning of 2015 is the best place to savour his world-famous macarons. www.pierreherme.com

Dalloyau

While Dalloyau’s history can be traced back to the reign of Louis XIV, the opening of the Hong Kong boutique has quite a story of its own. When Head Pastry Chef Matthieu Godard joined Épure that opened in 2014, he also became head of Dalloyau right next door. Under this young talent’s lead, Dalloyau’s original Opéra cake from 1955, the heavenly Saint-Honoré Chantilly and the cheeky Réligieuse shine brighter than ever. www.dalloyau.hk
