FAUCHON Paris LE CAFÉ - Hong Kong
HONG-KONG'S ONE AND ONLY FAUCHON PARIS LE CAFÉ
MAKES A MAJESTIC ENTRANCE AT THE NEW HOTSPOT OF THE CITY
Cafe Deco Group has joined hands with FAUCHON to venture Hong Kong’s very first FAUCHON Paris LE CAFÉ at Sha Tin. Serving as a gateway into the world of French gourmet foods, FAUCHON Paris LE CAFÉ will celebrate an official grand opening on 1 June 2016.
FAUCHON was started in Paris, the City of Love, in 1886. The founder, Auguste Fauchon, opened the first store on Place de la Madeleine in central Paris’s 8th arrondissement. Influenced by the artistic city along these 130 years, FAUCHON’s innovative and audacity allow it to make many interesting creations. For instance, FAUCHON is the first brand to create teas with different flavours of fruits and flowers. As such, the Parisian brand is labeled as a trend-setter and is continuingly searching for excellence with a taste for the rare and unique. Currently, FAUCHON has shops in 44 countries worldwide and planning further openings in Asia.
FAUCHON Paris LE CAFÉ newly locates at the shopping hotspot, New Town Plaza, which is just next to Sha Tin East Rail Station. The dining space is over 2000 square feet with 116 seats to avail, including inside the café and at the outer area. The audacious and innovative “hot pink and black” chicest colours, together with white-themed simple yet classy furniture, this contemporary café presents FAUCHON’s heritage with a modern touch. Our well-trained chefs and pastry chefs, inspired by France’s culinary heritage, strive to create luscious French gourmet and desserts to bring pleasant surprises to diners.
Using the finest and freshest ingredients, the brand new menu features handcrafted pastries and iconic éclairs with an introduction of two exciting items, the delectable Carré Framboise, topped with raspberries, is a butter shortbread biscuit coated with swiss meringue and thin layer of white chocolate. The iconic Fashion Choc is definitely the first choice for chocolatiers. The aesthetic creation has several chocolate layers with different textures to bring out the complexity of the taste yet appeases your palate. Diners with sweet tooth definitely can’t miss our signature éclair, Religieuse éclair. Coated with dark chocolate glaze and filled with Ashanti chocolate cream, the dark decadent éclair certainly can satisfy your choco-cravings. Millefeuille, also known as the Napoleon, is a classic French pastry that consists of aromatic vanilla cream sandwiched with layers of airy-flaky French puff pastry. FAUCHON Paris LE CAFÉ would like diners to always remember the succulent taste of the most classic and authentic French dessert.
Apart from delightful desserts, FAUCHON Paris LE CAFÉ also specializes in an array of authentic French cuisine including Quiche Lorraine, Foie Gras Salad, FAUCHON Club Sandwich, Victoria Salad and French Onion Soup. Regardless breakfast, lunch, a light snack, or dinner, menu options include Penne with Prawns, Asparagus Risotto, Seared Salmon Steak and Sirloin Steak with FAUCHON Fries. FAUCHON Paris LE CAFÉ also launches a delightful Afternoon Tea Set for Two (available at 2:30pm – 5:30pm daily). This fabulous afternoon tea set consists of several FAUCHON’s signature dish such as macarons, curry chicken & spinach quiche, mini Croque-monsieur and other FAUCHON pastries.
In addition, FAUCHON Paris LE CAFÉ provides a wide variety of retail products, like Cheddar Mini-Crêpes, Flavoured Tea with Fruits and Flowers, and Fresh Foie Gras. Highlight of the products will be the “Made in F” series. “Made in F” – Made in FAUCHON, Made in France – is an iconic series of FAUCHON’s originated from the motto of Auguste Fauchon “Be the One and Only”.
