8 Adorable Desserts At Dang Wen Li By Dominique Ansel That Asians Can Relate To
What makes Dang Wen Li, an approximation of 'Dominique' in Cantonese, doubly special is the fact that many of their pastries are exclusive to Hong Kong—you won't find the localised sweets at Ansel's bakeries across New York, Los Angeles, or London.
Scroll through the gallery to see an Asian take on his cookie shots, now served with milk tea instead of milk, realistic 'tins' of evaporated milk, and abstract macaroni that pays homage to classic Hong Kong comfort food. Our favourite has to be the century egg that isn't eaten with congee, but blended with coffee and crowned with a single sliver of pink pickled ginger.
