1. Blue berry cheese cake. The one is 80% similar to the classic New York cheese cake of MO HK of 20 years ago (now no more in MO HK). I have been extremely lingered onto my most favourite NY cheese cake by the ex-MO HK and so far none can be compared to 50% of theirs, until I came across this brother. Nowadays many cheese cakes are either too creamy (to get a smooth texture) or too hard. Some even forgot the classic sour cream and put some sweeter cream on it, completely forget the original NY cheese cake that the classic sour cream is a perfect match to the rich cheese flavour. So glad to find a 80% alike brother after all these years. Why 80% is because it's a blue berry one without the classic sour cream, but they didn't make the blue berry to extra sweet and rather made it more fruity flavour to match the original cheese flavour. BTW, I explained it to my friend on how either the fruity acidity or sour cream to match the cheese flavour since my friend didn't try the original cheese cake but got misled by the other sweet cream cheese cakes over the years. 2. Dark choco tart. Another delight to taste the aromatic dark choco. and it's not sweet either. 3. My favourite iced fruit tea. Back behind is the best Thai iced tea I have ever tried. However, as I asked the shop lady if I can buy the tea leaves, I got a polite apology as it's in a secret recipe. Though she recommended me to go to Yawara to get some, it wouldn't be the same for sure. For those who like Thai iced tea please this is a must try!
