Monthly Food News

#lollefood Monthly – July 2015

#lollefood is the tag I use on Instagram for all my recommended food items devoured in Hong Kong. Every month I consolidate some of the new food discoveries I’ve made in attempt to give you all a basis for brainstorming your next dinner or snack outing.

I’m in London, Nottingham and Edinburgh this week – so expect some UK travel posts to come soon!

Braza Churrascaria (Lan Kwai Fong) does an amazing lunch deal, serving an antipasti buffet for HK$118 (which features good quality smoked salmon, tuna, salami and parma ham, among other delicious items) and unlimited meat (beef, chicken and chorizo) for an additional HK$50. The chorizo was my favourite!

Porterhouse by Laris (Lan Kwai Fong) just opened on 1 July and the steak bites at their Grand Opening was one unforgettable highlight. I’ll definitely be back to have a proper sized steak here in no time.

Nood food at Hutchison House (Admiralty) opened last month (as part of the new Pure Yoga centre) and the sandwiches served here are healthy and fresh (albeit a bit pricy – HK$58 for the sandwich pictured above). Highly recommended for some tasty clean takeaway lunch food.

Espresso Alchemy (Tsim Sha Tsui) has to be the only restaurant (or cafe) that serves both excellent quality coffee and food too. I was particularly impressed with their homemade pesto cream sauce which was very herby, creamy and non-oily. They also make a great piccolo latte (which I find very rare). See the full review here.

U-Hang (Sai Ying Pun) does Korean fusion food and the dishes were addictively good! I had the kimchi bacon fried rice for lunch and it was a pretty good deal (HK$108) which included banchan buffet and some cheesecake and fruits for desserts.

For a limited time only, food lovers can use a special code “LOLLERL” and then sign up for a mobile app Sugar to receive HK$450 of free credit to redeem food and drinks at a list of delicious restaurants, including Butchers Club Burger, The Diner, Social Place, Munchies, Little Burro, Calimex, U-Hang, Bakery Cafe and many more! See the full instructions here.

Minions ice cream is now served at McDonald’s for only HK$5! It’s mango flavoured and while the flavour is kind of fake (i.e. nothing like fresh mangoes), it was delicious in its own way. The green tea ice cream they used to have was pretty unbearable. But I’d recommend giving this flavour a try.

Stone Nullah Tavern (Wan Chai) has a new menu and there are so many great dishes there to recommend. The mac n cheese probably looked the most appealing, but the fish and chips (using cod fish) and baby back ribs ended up to be my favourites of the night! The buffalo oysters are also a must-order. See the full review here.

Plat du Jour (Quarry Bay) serves delicious classic French bistro-style food. It’s located in Quarry Bay but is super value-for-money with a 3 course meal coming up to only HK$245. Their cheese souffle and lobster bisque soup were hands down my faovurite dishes of the night. See the full review here.

Little Burro (Sheung Wan and other locations) paired up with Stone Nullah Tavern to come up with a cheeseburger burrito for a special 4th July celebration this month! What I loved even more at Little Burro though was their super cheesy quesadillas and chips and dips!
