Pierre Hermé Hong Kong

Have you guys been to the new Pierre Hermé in Hong Kong?

I love visiting the 6arr. Paris location for Ispahan croissants in the morning and deux mille-feuilles in the afternoon. The London boutique in Belgravia is such a beauty…

…and now he’s opened two locations in Hong Kong. 

Joanne took me inside the Harbour City boutique (the other is in the IFC).

And we ate a dozen macarons in one sitting. It was delicious. 

My favorite was Jardin Merveilleux with cucumber water, mandarins, and olive oil. 

They don’t do pastries at this location but you can get exclusive Christine Ferber jams (let’s visit her kitchen next time we are back in Alsace!)…

…and a range of teas including an Ispahan blend coupling darjeeling with lychee, raspberry, and rose.

There are even caramels in Ispahan and salted butter…

…and handbags by Barbara Rihl who happens to be Hermé’s wife. 

He also does this spread called Infiniment Praline Noisetté. It’s like Nutella on crack with crushed caramelized hazelnuts folded into a praline spread. I had plans to spread it over toasted brioche or a split croissant…but wound up eating the whole thing with a spoon straight from the jar. 

Till next time ^_^
