Bucket List Must Eat Hong Kong Atum Cafe

“Come, let us have some tea and talk about happy things”

So yesterday, after a tough session at the gym, my friend and I decided to pamper ourselves with a fancy afternoon tea at the ATUM Restaurant. (Alright, let’s be honest here, we didn’t work that hard at the gym, and we have pre-booked this place before we decided to go to the gym, excuses excuses)

ATUM Restaurant is the second spot opened by the group, with their first one being a huge success!! A little bit different to their first spot which is called ATUM Desserant (you could probably guess by the  name, it’s a place for dessert, yay!! You would be able to google a lot of pages about this place if you are interested to know more), this new restaurant serves both sweets and savory.

The restaurant is a bit hidden inside the K11 mall in Tsim Sha Tsui of Hong Kong. You need to navigate your way thru all the little boutiques before you reach the entrance. The interior of the space resembles a bit of an art gallery, very simple, with some decorative elements.Again, it’s using my favourite elements of bare concrete and wood – simple, clean, and chic!

Seating Area is quite spacious, with lots of natural lightings

Instead of serving the afternoon tea set on traditional tied cake stand, they serve them on a flat long plate here, which makes it very different to the other places. The way they present the food on the plate makes it like an art piece here.

The tea set comes with any teas or coffees, and a salad. We ordered a 65% hot chocolate, and an organic berry tea today. All the food are in bite size, which is a great idea for no mess dining.

The presentation of the food is very nice, and to my surprise, the taste of each and every single piece of the food on the plate all taste great!  The savory and sweets are presented in alternate rows, which I’m not sure if the chefs are encouraging us to alternate between savory and sweets, however, I did it my own way of eating all the savory first then enjoyed my sweets at last, still tastes good 🙂

Highly recommend this place if you fancy a nice afternoon tea set.
