Wanna take your Instagram game up a level with amazing food posts? Well, we got you. Here are five of our fav spots for the most Instagrammable desserts in Hong Kong. 

Emack & Bolio’s

Ice cream connoisseur or not, if you’re anything like us, you’re going to fall in love with Emack & Bolio’s crazy train of treats. Not only do they have a large variety of mouthwatering flavors but also loads of base options of smoothies, frozen yogurts, sorbets and many others (we can’t stop thinking about without our stomachs growling). Their desserts taste amazing but most importantly, they please the eye, or to be more accurate, our camera lenses. Simple waffle cones are of the past for this spot, each cone is coated with your choice of treats from Froot Loops, coco pops to one of their many other chocolate-y signatures. GF, 26 Cochrane Street, Central, Central MTR Exit D2, 2505 6626; emackandboliohk.com

am.pm Hong Kong

Am.pm’s souffle pancakes take pancakes to the next level of fluffiness. Although they only have one location, it doesn't stop people from all ends of Hong Kong to come and try them. M. Definitely didn't stop us. You can choose from a variety of ‘dressings’, each a totally new experience. From tiramisu, matcha, strawberry white chocolate and many other dressings served with just enough soft serve ice cream and garnished with a tiny dried flower on top, we seriously felt like we were in a really posh dessert bar while standing on the street in the middle of Mong Kok. Shop B, G/F, Grand Place, #560 Nathan Road, Kowloon, Hong Kong, 2725 4318, www.facebook.com/am.pm.hk

Owl’s Choux & Gelato

Owl’s Choux & Gelato introduced us to a completely new take on the ever-loved ice cream sandwich. All our favourite flavours packed into perfect puffy choux. No one can choose just one, they’ve got red velvet, mango tango, popcorn & rocks (which is actually garnished with popcorns!) and praline noir. The looks of these desserts are exactly as vibrant as their taste. 32 Mody Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong; 96229342; owlschoux.ecwid.com

Givrés

Allergic to flowers, but love staring at them on Instagram? Givrés is an artisan dessert cafe smack in the middle of the romantic Lee Tung Avenue known for their rose-shaped gelato cones-- just as pretty as the real thing. They have a variety of flavors to choose from, each made into a perfect rose. You can get it on a cone, on a waffle or on your iced coffee, whichever your camera prefers. Added tip: you can also mix flavors if you ask them. G38, Lee Tung Avenue, 200 Queen's Road East, Wanchai, Hong Kong; 9659 0816; www.givres.com

Oddies

Mixing your favorite egg waffles with the gelato of your choice is the recipe for a perfect day and that's exactly what we got at Oddies. We could even layer the flavors to get the perfect mix along with getting an amazing picture (which will be used to make our friends really jealous) You can have it in a cone, cup and even a choux depending on your appetite. Although we would recommend the cup because just like us, you will not be able to get enough of this perfect dessert once you try it. 45 Gough Street, Central, Hong Kong; 2750 2111; www.facebook.com/oddiesfoodies/
