The best places for tiramisu in Hong Kong
There are so many options that it’s not so simple to narrow down the best places for tiramisu in Hong Kong. Tiramisu is many people’s favorite dessert. This delicate dessert can easily be found in many Italian restaurants or often expensive hotels and restaurants.
However, we’ve found plenty of affordable options for the best tiramisu in Hong Kong that are just waiting for you to try. Read on for our round up of some of the best places for tiramisu in Hong Kong, without a necessarily high price tag.
Seoulmate Cafe is a Korean fusion restaurant in Causeway Bay. As tempting as Korean fried chicken and other Korean foods may be, we are most attracted by their Maggeoli Tiramisu.
Maggeoli is also known as makgeolli. It is a Korean wine beverage made from rice that contains 6-9% alcohol. The cream cheese used in this tiramisu is creamy and melts in your mouth with the first bite. The ladyfinger biscuits are stacked together, giving a messy impression that it will soon collapse. However, we’ll be surprised if you don’t devour this so quickly that you don’t even notice.
Seoulmate Cafe’s maggeoli tiramisu is priced affordably at HK$58, and the portion is enough to be shared between two people.
Address: 4/F, Kyoto Plaza, 491-499 Lockhart Road, Causeway Bay
Mamaday’s tiramisu is special. Introduced as tiramisu coffee, this tiramisu is not just a coffee flavored like tiramisu, but really it is a kind of liquid tiramisu. This may sound confusing – but we encourage you to visit Mamaday and order the tiramisu to better understand.
It has layers like a traditional tiramisu dessert, but it is more liquid than solid. Best served at room temperature, Mamaday’s tiramisu is perfect if you are in love with this dessert and want to try it in a new way. It’s priced at HK$46, which is fair considering many coffees in Hong Kong cost more than HK$40, and a traditional tiramisu even more.
Mamaday serves other delicious food too such as a soft shell crab pizza and crab meat linguine. But since Mamaday is extremely popular with Hong Kongers, it may be helpful to make a reservation before your visit. We recommend you make the booking at least a week in advance.
Address: 1/F, Perfect Commercial Building, 28 Sharp Street West, Causeway Bay
Another spot for the best tiramisu in Hong Kong is all the way in Cheung Chau, which you have to take a ferry to reach. The Island Workbench cafe actually provides an array of dessert options, all of them mouthwatering. Just reading the menu will make you struggle to decide between them.
With choices like caramel pudding cheesecake, banana splits, chocolate lava cake with ice cream, affogato and so many other dessert items, you may want to visit often. But of course, we have our eyes on their tiramisu, which costs only HK$44. Despite the price, the portion is actually quite large and will satisfy your tiramisu craving. As Cheung Chau is a small island, you could enjoy your dessert and then head to the beach for a swim to burn those calories off.
Address: G/F, 16 Chung Hok Road, Cheung Chau
Hidden in Blossom, a very small shop situated near the University of Hong Kong, is another of our picks for the best tiramisu in Hong Kong. The entrance is so small, you might not easily notice this cafe if you aren’t paying close attention. But their tiramisu should not go unnoticed.
Priced at just HK$48, the portion can easily be shared between two people. On weekdays, order a brunch set and you only need HK$30 to add a tiramisu. All students and staff from the University of Hong Kong also enjoy a 10% off discount.
Address: Shop 2, G/F, Hing Hon Building, 63B-F Bonham Road, Sai Ying Pun, Western District
The Holam Bakery is a shop in Kwun Tong that specializes in crepe cakes. Their tiramisu crepe cake is superb but affordable at just HK$38. If you always order tiramisu, but want to try something different, head over to Holam Bakery for their tiramisu crepe cake.
The crepe cake is multilayered and refreshing. However, they do not offer their tiramisu crepe cakes every day. Check their Instagram page before your visit to see if they will be available that day. The rarity of this unique dessert makes it even more tempting.
Address: Room I, 4/F, Block 3, Camel Paint Building, 60 Hoi Yuen Road, Kwun Tong
Last but not least, we salute Grissini, our pick for the best tiramisu in Hong Kong. The tiramisu in Grissini may not be the most affordable on this list, but it is worth the price of HK$140. Classy comes at a price.
Grissini is an Italian restaurant in the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong. So, if you happen to visit this 5-star luxury hotel, you won’t want to miss their dessert of espresso coffee, Savoyard biscuits and amaretto, which together makes the best tiramisu in Hong Kong, hands down.
Address: 2/F, Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, 1 Harbour Road, Wan Chai
