I am no Christian but I do really like buttery pastries. Having a Galette des Rois once a year on the 6th of January to celebrate Christian Epiphany has become a yearly habit and is just my own excuse of eating this French dessert again, which is fit for a King !!
Galette des Rois, or King’s Pie -
There could possibly be better Galette des Rois in Hong Kong I have no doubts at all, but not many offer individual portions and it’s only $30 for a slice at Chez Patrick Deli. And this year’s pie was better than the one I ate at here last year, which makes it more the recommendable. Chez Patrick Deli will be offering this for a few more days after Epiphany Day, so hurry before it runs out.
Cross Section of the King’s Pie - $30
The pastry was heated up slightly before serving and with a dollop of cream. It was very crispy and flaky with a good butteriness. The one I ate last year was more softer & soggy in comparison. The frangipane stuffing had a great minced almond’s taste and there were also chunky bites of chopped almonds inside… unless I accidentally chewed on the feve bean or the figurine!
Café Gourmand Set with Mariage Freres ‘Marco Polo’ Tea – $80
A Parisian favourite for tea or for after dinner with coffee or tea. This was surprisingly well portioned with a Chocolate Mousse, Raspberries Tart and a Floating Island as well as the prestigious imported French Tea.
Floating Island -
I think Chez Patrick has improved as of late?? Hope it wasn’t a fluked effort. The desserts and savory offerings look better than before and neater, I actually wondered in my head whether they have recruited another person looking after these sections, or they are just taking time to warm up ! It’s definitely good value for money and recommendable. Let’s monitor them for a little longer..
