Shop OT215K, Level 2, Harbour City
I remember I was really excited when Lady M first opened in Los Angeles. After trying their signature Original Mille Crêpes and the Green Tea Mille Crêpes, I didn’t understand the hype about Lady M and why their cakes were so special.
It wasn’t until my friend introduced me to their Banana Mille Feuille that I actually started to appreciate Lady M. Needless to say, I was overjoyed when I found out they were going to open a branch in Hong Kong.
Signature Mille Crêpes
Their signature Mille Crêpes did not disappoint. The layers and layers goodness filled with thin slices of crêpes and soft, light cream is something that people in Hong Kong would like. Since the local tastes have gravitated towards desserts that are not as sweet and heavy, it’s no surprise that you’ll see people with Lady M takeaways throughout Tsim Sha Tsui and two long lines in front of their boutique in Harbour City (one for dine-in and one for buying takeaway).
Green Tea Mille Crêpes
I was really against ordering the Green Tea Mille Crêpes today because I thought it tasted more like almonds than green tea when I first had it in LA. It was a pleasant surprise when I took a bite and realized that it actually tasted like green tea.
Banana Mille Feuille
My personal favorite though, as mentioned, is the Banana Mille Feuille. It’s hard to eat all the layers in one bite but if you do, you’ll taste the layers of the flaky pastry, featherlight sponge cake and whipped cream and a touch of banana. Yea, it’s amazing and there’s a reason why I order this every time I go to Lady M.
It seems like a second Lady M is due to open in Hong Kong in the very near future. I walked past some signs in IFC around two weeks ago and I guess we’ll know when the second boutique is open when we see a crowd near where Petite Amanda used to be.
