Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
It’s always hard on Mondays, getting back into the system with a whole week ahead. There’s no better way to get out of the Monday Blues than treating yourself with something sweet. When my sister invited me to go pick up cupcakes with her afterwork, I jumped on it. I have to admit, when she said Kisses Cupcakes, I thought it was opened by the Hershey company. Turns out it is not but the cupcakes were yummalicious.
Walking up to the cupcake counter, it reminded me of Sprinkles Cupcakes back in LA. Of course, this is Hong Kong, so the portions are smaller. We ordered the red velvet, strawberry and lemon cupcakes.
My first thought was, “Can’t go wrong with these flavors…” One bite of each flavor and Kisses has me hooked. Not only are the cupcakes moist and soft, the buttercream is just the right amount of sweetness. When we ordered the strawberry, I was a little worried since the sales person told us that strawberry is their sweetest flavor. It’s just the right amount of sweetness that you don’t feel the urge to down a few glasses of water. The red velvet and lemon were also pretty good.
It wasn’t like to-die-for cupcakes and it’s certainly not like you have to make a trip to their store right now but I would go back and try a few other flavors like their s’mores or cookie monster. Happy sticky rice dumpling (zongzi) day everybody!
