The first cafe that I checked it out was 2/3 Dolci Pasticceria Caffe when I was once again in Hong Kong in July, about a month apart from my previous trip. I was excited as I could explore more food in Hong Kong.
I visited the Star Street Shop. There are a total of 5 outlets. The outlet does not have too much seats, about 4 by the side. It is mainly a takeaway shop. The design and decoration was pleasant, a little feel of Europe. It does remind me of my Europe trip when I was sitting in the cafe enjoying my desserts.
I didn’t know what to choose as I didn’t know what to expect from the cake. I asked for their specialty and was recommended the Pistachio, the Lychee and Rose and Guava. There were two summer special; Pear (which contains cinnamon) and the Lemon. After quite some contemplation, I took the “risk” and tried the Lychee and Rose. The Lychee and Rose is basically a mouse cake that has a pretty strong Lychee fragrance and a subtle Rose smell. The mouse was smooth, melt in mouth and not too sweet. It was pretty good.
I ordered a cup Cappuccino as well. It has a light body, high acidity with a fruity and slight citrus note. The coffee was good. I like the latte art.
As I was greedy, couldn’t resist the ice cream so finally I relented and ordered a scoop of Earl Grey Ice Cream. It has a very subtle Earl Grey taste. I prefer it to be a little stronger though. It was creamy but it was a pity that there were tiny ice crystal in the gelato. Somehow, not sure why, I find a similar taste in both the ice cream and the mouse cake. Maybe it was the milk, I suppose.
2/3 Dolci is a nice pleasant Europe feel Pasticerria cum cafe with pretty delicious lovely looking cakes and serving good coffee to go along with the dessert. I like 2/3 Dolci and would choose to return.
