    This list was all over Twitter yesterday. I'm still not sure if the original author was serious, or taking the piss.

    I guess there are different ways to read it...

    Awful "article". And, for the record, HK pastry (and baking generally) sucks.

    On the other hand, as lame as the list may be, it served its purpose in making people visit the site and be aware that it exists.
