so what is a desserant? well, it’s exactly like the name! a restaurant that only serves desserts to fill your belly! I have always wanted to try having high-tea in one of HK’s many upper class restaurants, but little did I know.. it costs at least 200HKD per person just to have some scones, cakes and tea. super expensive especially for a poor student like myself. but since it was new years, my boyfriend wanted to let me try at least ONCE! (thank you boyfriend ^^) so we decided to head to the Avant-garde style Atum; where art becomes edible. or edibles become art?
located at the 16th floor, the view from the desserant was absolutely beautiful.
tubes of Atum’s special strawberry juice were served as door gifts ^^. it was delicious! for those who love sweet food. they serve different juices every time too!
the menu was pretty diverse. but most people will opt for the “Improvisation” menu (inclusive of 2/3 drinks) as it is for 2 or 3 people. for 2 people, it costs 348HKD and 522HKD. there are other one person menus from 118HKD to 138HKD too but they are not done in front of you unlike improvisation.
every canvas have a different design. it depends on the mood of the chef ^^. every design has its own beauty. its the beauty of abstract!
the chefs will introduce you every ingredient as they place it on the canvas (you can choose between white, black and grey.) and they also let you play with the syrup too if you want to! but I saw some reviews and some looked really bad hahahaha. abstract art requires some practice too I guess haha.
this was how ours look like before the nitrogen ice cream was put in the middle. I especially liked the brown jelly which tasted like.. well.. surprise! go try it for yourself hehe.
Happy New Year everyone!
the chef was also very nice. he took a dozen of pictures for us! except he didn’t have much of an eye for taking pictures haha.
and with the raspberry and.. I don’t know what was the other flavour but it tasted funky nitrogen ice cream! I loved the raspberry really much! although it melted really quickly. be careful not to eat it too quickly to avoid burning your tongue! you know how dangerous dry ice are!
