Finally, it's been confirmed! Last Sunday, renowned pastry chef and cronut creator Dominique Ansel shared on his Instagram that the long-awaited "Dang Wen Li by Dominique Ansel" – a capsule collection created especially for Hong Kong – will open up shop in Harbour City this December!
So, what can we expect? The infamous cronut? Cookie shots? Frozen s’mores? Although we can't say this with 100% certainty, but it's unlikely that you'll be seeing all of these famous pastry perfections on the menu. Instead, this brand new bakery concept will present a series of Hong Kong-exclusive pastries and sweet treats inspired by our city's unique culture and traditions. The Dang Wen Li by Dominique Ansel (named after chef Dominique's "Chinese" name) store has been estimated to seat roughly 40 customers over a 1,200 sqft space.
Unfortunately, not much else has been revealed at this point but if you're curious, follow Dang Wen Li's newly set up Instagram page @DangWenLiHk for sneak peeks and all the latest updates on what they're cooking up... literally!
