InterContinental Hong Kong's afternoon tea service is legendary and it's easy to see why. Warm scones and Mariage Frères teas are served alongside an ever changing collection of Cyril's favorite sweets. That includes tarts, macarons, puff pastries, and whimsical cakes—all miniaturized. Just right for the indecisive.
Milk Chocolate Mocha Cake
Thin, crackly layers of crisp meringue and feuilletine come layered with the softest milk chocolate cake and a tower of fluffy mocha mousse that borders on whipped cream. Sink your fork in from top to bottom to get a bite of everything at once.
One of those whisper light, easy-melting cheesecakes that are anything but dense and rich. The citrus flavors are generous with lemon coming in the lead, followed by tangerines. A buttery crushed cookie crust gives the cheesecake a fine finish.
Chocolate and Caramel
A simple classic with layers of dark chocolate sponge and an equally decadent caramel mousse. The caramel is straight up velvety in texture and its flavor is intense, dark and bordering on smoky, while never too sweet.
If you're only going to order one dessert off the menu, make it Cyril's Ispahan Cake. The three main flavors of Isphan—raspberry, lychee and rose—are delivered in the form of a coconut biscuit base layered with sweet rose petal cream and lychee mousse dotted in vanilla beans.
