To take home a true taste of Hong Kong, consider buying Chinese cakes and festive delicacies, such as "wife cake" (flaky pastry with winter melon paste) , mini moon cakes (lotus-seed paste cake) , egg rolls (finely rolled pastry not the deep fried rolls found in the West) , and almond cookies . Chinese cakes are appropriate for just about any occasion including weddings (assorted cakes) and at festival time (moon cakes for Mid-Autumn Festival).
Attractively packaged and hygienically sealed, assorted Chinese cakes can be found in specialty shops in Mong Kok, Tsim Sha Tsui, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay and North Point. Some cake shops also have consignment outlets in major department stores.
Ensure freshness by checking the expiry date before purchase.
