sevva – let them eat cake!

continuing the sweet and classy journey at sevva!

berries of the woods, rose petal coulis on vanilla bean panna cotta. ($130 hkd) wasn’t as pretty as what i’d imagined… thought there should be a few pieces of pinkish red rose petals? love those fat fresh berries! and see those teeeeny tiny vanilla beans scattering all over the place?! love the strong natural vanilla aroma! (those artificial ones really displease me a lot!) texture-wise, hmmm its incredibly smooth BUT, i thought panna cotta should be more pudding-like instead of liquid-like?

 

symphony choc bowl of fresh fruits & pear bavarois. ($125 hkd) WHOOOOAA! was totally fascinated by its amazing presentation! not an outstanding dessert, but I guess it can’t go any wrong with fresh berries, chocolate and cream, can it?

milk tea ice-cream with caramel crunch & ginger bread. ($130 hkd) i’m always a GREAT fan of milk tea! and this SURELY didn’t disappoint me! that rich and lingering flavor of milk tea… AHHHH! this was heavenly! each spoonful was SOOO satisfying!! their homemade caramel toffee crunch and ginger bread were nice as well! but didn’t really match with the ice-cream…

and here comes THE ROYAALS! *screaming* the MOST stunning and fanciful cakes ever! tell me how can i NOT love you at first sight!!

 

marie-antoinette’s crave. ($450 hkd) colourful macarons attaching to pistachio chiffon with cream and raspberries, adorned with hundreds of pretty sugar dragees and crowned with PINK COTTON CANDY *yaaay*! cake was SOOO soft and fluffy! and cream was pretty light and fresh!

 

le louis. ($450 hkd) chocolate chiffon with whipped french cream and blackberries, decorated with marshmallow and sugar dragees and crowned with BABY BLUE COTTON CANDY! sadly and truly, sometimes looking good doesn’t mean you will have a pretty soul… (if you know what i mean! and this applies to BOTH beautiful cakes. but trust me, it wasn’t really THAT bad anyway.)

this swanky posh comfy place, will always be one of my all time favourite spot for chillaxing!

sevva – wanna be the supremely classy high society?

if people ask me where’s my most favourite and frequent place i go for afternoon tea in town, i would definitely say THIS PLACE! i’m totally IN LOVE with this rooftop bar, serving extravagant delicacy, providing a range of drinks, having an impeccable and stunning view, overlooking the heart of central and the victoria harbour. so comfy, so chic, so elegant, so posh…

 

signature tea set. ($680 hkd for 2) i’m probably sure this is the MOST expensive tea set in hong kong. so what’s the craze for this? the toasted crumpet with smoked salmon & chive cream cheese, crab meat burger and short rib burger were my favourite ones among the savory choices. as for the sweet tier, the carrot cake TOTALLY stood out! cake was so moist and went well with the velvety cream cheese on top! then, was it WORTH the price? hmmm overall the food quality was above average and the service was satisfactory and of course, EXCELLENT ambiance. what MORE can I ask for?

besides their tea set, sevva offers an incredibly scrummy selection of cakes served by ms. b’s.

 

ginger cheese cake. ($140 hkd) crumbled into pieces when i forked in it… whoooops! shouldn’t cheese cake be smooth and creamy? flavor-wise, it was ALRIGHT, with a hint of ginger taste.

 

chocolate fudge cake with marmalade. ($140 hkd) the cake was a bit dry, plus i’ve never like the combination of chocolate with orange…

 

the original crunch cake. ($135 hkd) soft fluffy vanilla chiffon sponge cake with ridiculously light and pillowy fresh cream and pieces of house-special homemade caramel toffee crunch! BEEEEST crunch cake ever in town!

 

lemon meringue. ($135 hkd) AHHHH! another must order item again! love the layers of crunchy lemon meringue in between layers of fresh cream! how can i ever resist this! i’m a sucker for anything in lemon… this was DIVINE! #FTW
