Galette des Rois on Epiphany Day @ Chez Patrick Deli - (Hong Kong)

 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.  Princess



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..
