Starting in Guangzhou Keepo 1979 opened in the new Xiamihu mall called 1979.
Now you can order cupcakes in Shenzhen for birthday parties, company parties and special occasions.
They offered me some coffee made of coffee beans from Kenya with a slight tomato taste.
I opted for the Strawberry cupcake which said it used Japanese milk.
Normally 25RMB they gave me a 20% discount which was generous and appropriate when I am eating cupcakes I am comparing them to the gold standard Sift in Hong Kong. Those are really the best cupcakes in Hong Kong and I regularly smuggle them over the border for friends and staff. This strawberry cupcake was filled with a a strawberry flavored filling and so gave me the feeling I was eating strawberry shortcake. Overall the taste was good but I am still partial to the Hong Kong cupcakes and the list price in HK is 25HKD and the list price in Shenzhen is 25RMB. Something doesn’t seem right here.
Keepoo is a good destination if you have a car or want to take a taxi you can sit outside looking over the Honey lake and abandoned Scooby Doo like haunted amusement park.
I saw a familiar face on their wall former long time Shenzhen resident Jesse Warren was sporting a cupcake filled grin.
