The elegance of this pastry shop covered in white and gold stands out in stark contrast to the surrounding neighbourhood. Les Delices pairs their cakes and choux pastries such as the Heavenly Chocolate Dome ($10.90) and Earl Gray Choux ($5.90) with premium Chinese teas to bring out even more flavour. The pastry chef trained in France and these delicacies that are often inspired by personal events have been painstakingly created to suit the local palate. #01-14 333
