For the two hottest months of the season stylish and ever-cool lobby café-patisserie COCO brings back its seasonal summer ice cream fiesta offering rewarding bowls of three creative ice cream combinations inspired with iconic local and Japanese flavours!
As an alternative and reviving “pick-me-up” to the 5 o’clock tea among the three new ice cream offerings is the Hong Kong’s local favourite
Cha Chaan Teng ($178) combo featuring three scoops of ice cream: iconic milk tea flavour, coffee and Crème Brulee; with creative toppings of mini pineapple bun with a tiny slab of salted butter, golden-brown French toast, red bean, evaporated milk jelly and freshly baked mini Portuguese tart. Crowning the local foodie’s favourite combo is a hand-crafted chocolate can imitation of the recognizable sweetened condensed milk to crunch on.
Transporting you to the instagrammable cafes of Kyoto and offering a medley of textures is COCO’s Matcha Madness ($178) with three scoops of rich green tea ice cream beautifully balanced with bouncy konjac jelly, matcha chocolate crispy rice, sweet and soft adzuki bean, spongy miniature matcha cream roll cake and crunchy ice cream cone topping the green overload combo smothered with green tea chocolate sauce. For fans of delicate flavours, fleeting moments and all things pretty in pink, the refreshing Sakura Sensation ($178) brings in home-made Sakura Water Drop cake and sakura chocolate sauce lacing chocolate meringue and red bean hiding between three scoops of mango,
strawberry and panna cotta ice cream by Mövenpick.
