As we all know, stressed is just desserts spelled backward and what better way to de-stress than dropping by Café Bonbon especially if you’re a bit of a foodie?
Tucked away in the old street of Rua de Espectacao de Almeida, head down a stairway below Kiang Wu Hospital and with a little help from your smartphone and GPS, you won’t miss this adorable turquoise café.
The chef and owner chose this name because Bonbon means candy or sweet in French. Coincidentally, her name also starts with B. The talented Betty Fung, trained at Le Cordon Bleu, France, brought her inspiration to Macau and without a doubt, her eye candy desserts should go straight to your dining bucket list in Macau. Follow Betty’s lead of favorites to make your life easier with the selection process. Trust me, you’ll be at loss for words!
Signature Lemon Basil Tart (my favorite) – this tangy, lemon zesty tart tickles your taste buds, but don’t worry about it being too sour. There’ll be a hint of basil to balance and even out the aftertaste, making you crave for another bite!
Chocolate Mousse Cake – consists of three layers of almond, chocolate mousse and soft cake with such rich texture, need I say more?
And lastly, if you’re feeling fruity, try out Café Bonbon’s Mixed Berries Tart or their New Mango Mousse & Passion Fruit Cream –they might be too pretty to eat!
Accompany the delicacies with the homemade Caramel Coffee or Hazelnut Hot Chocolate, made of 70% authentic French Valrhona chocolate served with a cute whisk for you to mix it. It’s the perfect end to an overwhelming dessert experience. Head over to Café Bonbon and turn a stressed to a dessert kind of day!
