Sift – Delicate Afternoon Tea Set

Sift 的杯子蛋糕一直非常出名,除了精緻的賣相,其美味亦令它成為城中最一最二的杯子蛋糕。但大家有留意這裡的其他產品嗎?最近Sift便推出了下午茶,不但有迷你杯子蛋糕和馬卡龍,更有一些鹹點如蛋餅和酥點,價錢也只是$300/2位,在中環區算是十分相宜。

If you ask me to choose the best cupcakes in town, I would not hesitate to recommend Sift. The moisture, texture and frosting always makes the perfect combination. Have you even noticed there is afternoon tea set at Sift? They have launched the 3-tier afternoon tea set with savory items and signature cupcakes & macarons. It costs only $300/2 person, which is pretty a good deal in Central with a quiet ambiance.

份量甚多的三層下午茶,鹹點有蛋批,雞肉蘑菇酥點,芝士泡芙。蛋批做得不錯的,還有點點水分,芝士和蛋味很香,但也不及芝士泡芙的芝士味突出。原味鬆餅配上忌廉,簡單又美味,一點也不甜膩。

The 3-tier tea set contains savory items such as Gougere, Spinach and Lorraine Quiche and Chicken & Mushroom Vol-au-vent.  The quiche was quite nice while the moisture of the filling was well preserved. The cheese and egg flavour was quite rich as well. However, the cheese flavour of gougere was definitely the best among all. Scone is always an item who seems to be easily made but requires quite a lot of attentions. The original scone was so tasty pairing with clotted cream than jam.

甜點當然不能少看,不但有著名的迷你杯子蛋糕和馬卡龍,還有兩款特別的甜點 – 玫瑰荔枝馬卡龍夾紅桑子夾心和朱古力榛子脆餅。小妹也特別喜歡這兩款,朱古力榛子脆餅有著點點「金莎」的感覺,榛子脆脆相當美味又有口感,朱古力控的雷達頓時開著,真的覺得很美味。 玫瑰荔枝馬卡龍就帶著清新的玫瑰香,紅桑子微酸便剛好平衡了那甜味。

Here we come to the sweet & dessert section. Apart from the signature mini-cupcakes and macarons, two pastries, Ispahan and Chocolate Hazelnut Crunch, were included and they really made you keep an eye on them. I do like the Chocolate Hazelnut Crunch much since the hazelnut crunch gave a nice crunchy texture and made great contrast to the praline. My radar for chocolate was immediately turned on once I had the first bite. 🙂 Ispahan was made with rose, lychee and raspberry, while the fragrance of rose was so intense and made it very outstanding.

著名的杯子蛋糕不用多介紹,一口一個,甜度適中,而內裡保持水分。三重朱古力蛋糕那濃濃的朱古力,更讓人愛不釋手。而馬卡龍的蛋白餅面雖未夠香脆,但餡料卻調配得很不錯,味道適中,也是不錯的選擇。

No doubt that I don’t have to explain more about the cupcakes and macarons. The triple chocolate cupcake was one that made you mouth watering and don’t want to stop eating it due to its rich chocolate frosting.

Sift的甜點無可置而是相當出色,希望鹹點也可以再做好一點,便更出色了。 同場加映,剛好碰上了每月的馬卡龍班,很希望下次可以參與。:)

The dessert and pastries at Sift are so outstanding that the savory items are not easy to get attention. Hope it will get better and better.  (Addition: got to take a look at the monthly macaron class while doing tasting. Hope I can join soon.)
