Imperial Treasure, Hong Kong: New Go-to Michelin-Quality Chinese Restaurant

Even though Imperial Treasure was awarded Two Michelin Stars in Shanghai last year, and has been a household brand name in Singapore for many more years, I admittedly had not heard of this restaurant until it opened in One Peking Road in Tsim Sha Tsui recently. When I mentioned I was coming here to a Singaporean friend… Read More Imperial Treasure, Hong Kong: New Go-to Michelin-Quality Chinese Restaurant

Lee Lo Mei: Creative Hong Kong Food with Quality Ingredients

Learning that a plate of rice rolls (cheung fan/腸粉) at Lee Lo Mei would cost HK$138 initially made me roll my eyes at a potentially overpriced gimmicky spot. I was skeptical as to whether foie gras and truffle would actually be a meaningful upgrade to the traditional cheung fan, which is already delicious with simple char siu or minced… Read More Lee Lo Mei: Creative Hong Kong Food with Quality Ingredients

Bing Sheng 炳勝, Guangzhou: Best BBQ Pork You’ll Ever Have

It was not the first time I was taking the direct two-hour train ride from Hung Hom to Guangzhou. But my previous visits had been pretty uneventful, so it was no surprise that my mother would be in shock when I told her my plans: For what… What is there to do in Guangzhou?  This time I was going there to eat… Read More Bing Sheng 炳勝, Guangzhou: Best BBQ Pork You’ll Ever Have

Dragon Noodles Academy: Peking Duck, Lobster Noodles and More

That said, I actually just came here on a random week night after… Read More Dragon Noodles Academy: Peking Duck, Lobster Noodles and More

But recently foodpanda has caught my attention; it’s an online food delivery service, where you can order restaurant food from a pretty impressively large number… Read More Gourmet food delivered to your door or desk with foodpanda

Best seafood restaurant in Sai Kung for lobster feast

People usually visit Sai Kung to get away from the city (go on hikes, junk trips, beaches etc.) or often also for the seafood restaurants its famous for. The mainstream seafood restaurants have disappointingly lost their quality with their gain in popularity (why does that always happen anyway?). I have recommended Chuen Kee before, although for their dim sum specifically,… Read More Best seafood restaurant in Sai Kung for lobster feast

Cheap Burmese-style noodles in Macau worth the trek

On the non-lunch hours of a Monday afternoon, this Burmese-style noodles shop in Macau was full, with three other people waiting for their takeaway orders outside. We started talking to one lady, and she mentioned how busy this place always is, recommending the fish soup noodles. We really came here for the coconut chicken curry noodles though. So… Read More Cheap Burmese-style noodles in Macau worth the trek
