The Asia Trip: McDonald's Hong Kong - Green Tea Lamington

McDonald's Hong Kong - McCafe Green Tea Lamington
I had never even heard of a Lamington until I went by a McDonald's McCafe and saw it advertised in the window. Intrigued, I eventually tried one for 7 HK or roughly about a dollar.

Anyway, a Lamington is a cubical sponge cake that is iced and then rolled in coconut flakes. They are Australian in origin and are popular there and in New Zealand.

McDonald's Green Tea Lamington features a green tea frosting and is fairly small; probably about an inch and a half per side. It's served on a ceramic plate with a dessert fork (I know, right?!).

It was a bit on the dry side, and I really couldn't get a taste of the green tea. The coconut didn't really impart a good flavor either; I wondered, at the time, what the "little white bits" were. Overall, it was a pretty plain cake.

  1. I'd imagine that the coconut flavor would've overpowered any bits of green tea since green tea is already light in taste
