About – The Story Behind How lolleroll Started

I started making myself a healthy breakfast every day in attempt to partially offset the fact that I was eating out over 10 times a week! This was back in Hong Kong, where it is very common to dine out all the time.

I’ll often make¬†yogurt, granola, oatmeal, chia seed puddings, eggs or avocado. On weekends, I enjoy experimenting with healthy pancakes, waffles or something completely different.

It all started in Hong Kong…

In Hong Kong, I was working in Central. That meant easy access to Sheung Wan, Soho, Lan Kwai Fong, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay and more – which is where all the good restaurants are concentrated. I would even take a quick MTR ride to the other side of the harbour (Tsim Sha Tsui) for lunch too.

…and continued all over the world

Since 2016, I travelled extensively to places like Singapore, Bangkok, Tasmania, Portugal, and South America (Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina). All of my food-centric travel experiences can be read about on this website. Browse through my categories for an even longer list of travel destinations.

Singapore in 2017

In 2017, I moved to Singapore. I discovered truly delicious “cheap eats” at hawker centres, including the cheapest Michelin Star spot selling Chicken Rice! But my favourite parts about Singapore’s dining scene were the creative restaurants and brunch cafes. Check out my favourite bars and restaurants in Singapore and my favourite brunch and coffee shops in Singapore.

London from 2018 to 2020

From 2018-2020, I lived and worked in London, which is arguably one of the best cities for excellent food. It’s crazy how easy it is to find excellent food in this city. Even in just the neighbourhood I stayed in my first year there, I easily came up with a list: 9 Best Restaurants in King’s Cross for 2019.

You’ll find an extensive list of restaurant reviews and guides all in London on this website. It’s hard to pick favourites, but you’ll find some of my most recent recommendations here.

Now I’m living in Switzerland

When the Coronavirus pandemic hit in 2020, we quickly made the shift to home-cooking and home-dining. I kind of fell in love with dining at home. Plus, at the same time, I decided to move to Zurich, where there are fewer restaurant choices and dining out is quite expensive.

So that’s why you’ll see a more frequent emergence of recipes from 2020 onwards!

Travel stories to continue

Like most of you, I can’t wait to travel again and hopefully when that’s possible, I will continue to share travel stories.
