Cantonese pastry chef Mr. Hai, who has Hong Kong 5-star hotel experience, opened this place to showcase his top-class desserts. He frankly admits that he lacks the money for expensive-looking packaging or fancy interior decor, instead investing in ensuring that his creations are the best-tasting, freshly made daily with top-grade ingredients. For example, the Mr. Earl Gray chocolates use imported ingredients like 70% dark chocolate and 54% Belgian Callebaut Chocolate, and other top ingredients he uses include whole dried, air-shipped raspberries which costs NT$1,100 per 300 grams and chocolate "jumping" candies from Europe that cost him NT$1,700/bottle. Hai combines these high-end ingredients, creating fresh dessert and chocolates so pure that they must be consumed soon after leaving the fridge or they will melt at room temperature. --By Javier Siles, translated by S. Ying
