Artisanal ice cream shops have been popping up everywhere in this harbour city and I’ve got the full scoop (Get it?) on the most-loved — not to mention, Instagram-worthy — ones for you to try:

1. Oddies Foodies

The egg waffle or eggette has been a popular side-street snack in Hong Kong for many years. And just recently, a tiny dessert shop called Oddies Foodies took this Hong Kong favourite to a whole new level by combining it with Italian soft-serve gelato. The result? Pure genius!

Location: 45 Gough Street, Central, Hong Kong

2. Emack & Bolio’s

Everyone went nuts when Emack & Bolio’s first opened its doors to the Hong Kong crowd. It’s not difficult to see why, though, as this award-winning American chain brought its ice cream A-game to this global financial centre. With its unique flavours and over-the-top waffle cones, there’s no way hardcore ice cream addicts can resist!

Location: 26 Cochrane Street, Central, Hong Kong

3. Little Bao

Little Bao is a modern Asian diner in Sheung Wan that is known not just for its innovative savoury dishes but also for its mouth-watering dessert — the ice cream bao. Just imagine.. Green tea ice cream sandwiched between two deep-fried buns and drizzled with condensed milk or salted vanilla oozing with rich caramel sauce! If that won’t intensify your sugar cravings, I don’t know what will!
