Sassy Addresses: Vanilla

Since coming to Hong Kong I definitely don't cook nearly as much as I did when I was living in Switzerland. I use the excuse of having a tiny kitchen bla bla, but the truth is probably that a big part of it is just laziness! One of the most exciting discoveries I made after about six months of trekking past the blackboard above on the mid-levels escalator and not really noticing it, was to turn right onto Mosque Street and find Vanilla.

Vanilla is a little shop and bakery that sells a wonderful selection of cakes, and also quiches, salads, sandwiches and ready-made lasagne, fish pie, shepherd's pie etc. It also has what I am sure are the best brownies in Hong Kong, with a firm, crumbly outside, and fudgy gooey deliciousness inside. I often run down to pick up a last-minute dinner when I have had one of those busy days where you suddenly realize it's 7pm and haven't even thought about what to cook. You can also eat in the shop at a counter with high stools against the window.

Vanilla can be found at 33 Mosque Street, Mid-Levels. Tel: 2530 4828


  1. My name is Jacqueline Fogarty and I stopped in your store today and left my details with the owner. I have had many years of catering and bakery experience and feel that my skills in design would be a benefit to your store. I did inquiry about parttime work and mentioned that I was not merely interested in salary at all, but to have an opportunity in working in this kind of a setting. Currently, I am a teacher and work parttime, I would be available late morning into afternoon as well as on holidays or vacation days for other employees. It was pleasure going into your shop as I think it is a wonderful name as well as very beautiful designs and pastry goods.

    Many thanks for speaking with me about possible parttime employment.
