Eat Darling Eat是一间位于Fashion Walk的甜品实验室，在铜锣湾喧闹的街道上成为一道独特的风景线。充满想象力的室内设计与店内别具一格的甜品相互呼应。引人瞩目的色彩和材质在刺激客人视觉的同时，也如同是在礼赞着甜品制作的艺术。
Situated in Fashion Walk, ‘Eat Darling Eat’ is the latest addition under Ming Fat House. The dessert laboratory offers guests a visual respite from bustling Causeway Bay with its whimsical interiors that mirror the eclectic menu. Celebrating the art of dessert making, the interior uses provocative colours and textures which stimulates guests’ visual senses.
The design draws inspiration from the experimental and creative nature of Postmodern era, by incorporating elements that are playful, decorative and whimsical, and using forms that challenge conventional shapes and colours (eg. Custom stools inspired by Donut and Jello, host station and railing that echoes the shape of the stair, and bench seating that shapes like a cake cut-out).

The interior highlights the quality of split-level architecture. The lower level entrance area is open concept, while the upper level is framed as a theatre by using fluorescent colours and reflective surfaces. A yellow tinted glass separates the two levels, entices guests to have a glimpse of upstairs and explore further into the place.

Upon arrival to the upper level is a pink lounge with reflective ceiling and flooring, giving a lucious feeling to the guests as they enjoy the desserts. Both end corners of the lounge are marked by gradation tables and curved walls imprinted with colourful artwork that plays with the idea of optical illusion, giving customers a visual sensation while enjoying these experimental desserts.

The result is a design aesthetic that is a fully immersive, creating an environment that is illusory with the use of colourful geometries and organic shapes. The design is bold, surreal, and out of the ordinary. It is a utopian remedy that escapes from global perspective of popular culture.
