New HK restaurant openings helmed by top world chefs

Dang Wen Li by Dominique Ansel

Creator of social media darlings including Cronut, Cookie Shot, Blossoming Hot Chocolate, and many more, Dominique Ansel – named World’s Best Pastry Chef by the World’s 50 Best Awards – has announced his first eponymous bakery in Hong Kong at Harbour City in Tsim Sha Tsui, following previous openings in New York, London, and Los Angeles.

Opened in the first week of 2020, Ansel has designed a range of innovative desserts exclusive to Hong Kong, both inspired by local traditions and iconic classics reimagined , like the ‘Lemon Juice Box’ – a nostalgic nod to childhood memories filled with bergamot curd and earl grey mascarpone mousse, and the ‘Pineapple Bun’ – a twist on the local bakery staple to a coconut mousse ‘bun’ filled with pineapple lime passionfruit jam. His signature Cookie Shot and Blossoming Hot Chocolate are transformed with local elements such as Hong Kong milk tea and chrysanthemum marshmallow.

“I wanted to create new pastries for Hong Kong that do just that – pastries that make you remember, bring you back to childhood memories, or remind you of what makes Hong Kong such a special place.” Ansel said.

Classic French viennoiserie, from flaky croissants to the signature DKA (Dominique’s Kouign Amann), and a selection of savoury options will also be served in the shop.

Address: Shop OT G63A, G/F, Ocean Terminal, Harbour City, 3 – 27 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
