In so many cities, and especially here in the 852, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to amazing food. And nowadays, what it looks like is just as important as what it tastes like; especially when it comes to sweet treats (and getting more likes on your Instagram page!). So we’ve rounded up some of our favourite and the most Instagrammable delectable delights, perfect for that 3pm slump (or your #cheatday).
By now, everyone must have seen Yum Cha’s adorable selection of dim sum, designed to look like animals (hello piggy pork buns!). However, their lava custard buns have got to be the most instagram worthy! With googly eyes and custard that oozes out when squeezed, the buns make for the perfect Boomerang for any Sassy Girls Insta page!
Find them at Yum Cha, Nan Fung Tower, 2/F, Nan Fung Place, 173 Des Voeux Rd Central, Central, Hong Kong
Has a cupcake ever been eaten and not snapped for Instagram first? I don’t think so! These bite-sized delights are made to look photo ready and the cupcakes on offer at Sift are no different. They keep it classic with simple designs and the most perfect swirls of frosting; but be sure to take a pic quick, as they taste just as good as they look!
Find them at various locations across Hong Kong or order online here
Ice cream sandwiches have got to be one of the ultimate indulgences for anyone with a sweet tooth and the incredible offerings at Elephant Grounds are some of the finest out there. Combining cookies, ice cream and a whole load of amazing toppings and sauces, these are not to be missed. With new flavours every week, you’ve got an ideal excuse to keep going back for more (and to Instagram ‘em all too!).

When the weather hots up in Honkers, there is nothing better than something ice cold to take the edge of the heat. I See I See’s cool designs, fresh fruit juices and the fact that they turn some of our favourite cocktails (did someone say mojito?) into ice pops, is reason enough to have them splashed all over your insta page!
Find them at Shop 01, Haven Court, 138 Leighton Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
You donut want to miss these! Buttery Factory have taken the classic sweet treat and given them an OTT insta-makeover. With drool worthy flavours like maple bacon and camp fire smores, these loaded donuts are photo ready!

I myself have even fallen victim to Instagrammin’ my perfectly curated ice cream cone from Emack and Bolio’s (it looked too good not to!) With their huge selection of ice creams and froyos, plus some incredible cones to load up (try the Coco Pops Marsh “Mellow”cone and thank me later) there’s a reason why this place is so popular!
Find them at 26 Cochrane Street, Central District, Hong Kong
