I’ve heard many good things about Aberdeen Street Social. I knew it was a perfect spot for after work cocktails, especially given its casual relaxing vibes within PMQ, which kind of takes you away from office-building-vibes. But since “casual British dining” is rarely my craving, I had only managed to visit for drinks until recently. … Read More Aberdeen Street Social: A Simple Satisfying Set Menu (8-31 Aug 2016)
I’m with the meat-eating camp who believe that fat meat=yummy meat. It’s not exactly the most health-conscious choice, but fattier cuts tend to be more flavourful, juicy and tender, which is why I always order ribeye steak and why Hong Kong-ers love chicken thighs so much. So although pork is rarely my first choice of… Read More FINDS: Nordic Restaurant featuring Healthy Omega 3 Pork
I often encounter phases in my life where one cookie ingested leads to a continuous daily craving for more, usually at 4pm in the office. But anyone who’s actually watched cookies being made, will know how bad it is to give in to that craving everyday. There is so much sugar involved. Sugar-free Natvia So… Read More Recipe: Sugar-free Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Comfortable light green shades, wooden furniture and quotes dotted on the walls – I was already sensing that this would be a cafe worth writing about when I saw the entrance. Of course the “healthy” concept was the selling point which attracted me here in the first place, but it’s the, I would say “realistically healthy”… Read More Cafe Greenprint: New Green-Conscious “Realistically Healthy” Spot
I always knew Grand Hyatt Steakhouse was one of the most “must-try” steakhouses in Hong Kong. After such roaring reviews, inevitably came the skeptics who felt it didn’t live up to expectations or that it was too expensive. Apart from other people’s disappointment, one reason I procrastinated my visit was because they do two sittings… Read More Grand Hyatt Steakhouse: The Ultimate Steak Experience
FRITES has been around in Hong Kong for a few years. But the dramatic number of new restaurants opening up each month (or week) in Hong Kong means that some of the older ones don’t get much attention. That can sometimes be a huge mistake though… Especially if laksa mussels and deep fried camembert cheese are… Read More FRITES Belgium on Tap: Laksa Mussels? Yes Please!
If you follow any food blogs, accounts or websites, you must have seen all the viral posts on “mug cakes”. It’s an easy sell for modern busy/lazy people, because it’s a quick cake recipe that’s supposed to take no longer than 5 minutes, including microwave time. So I’ve always been curious as to whether mug cakes… Read More Do Mug Cakes Actually Taste Good?
We went to Edinburgh expecting a lot of fresh seafood, but instead were left most impressed by Edinburgh Larder’s cakes and scones. The quality and taste of tea time treats at this home-y cafe is almost unparalleled in my encyclopedia of eating. This place would undoubtedly be my number one food recommendation to anyone visiting the… Read More Edinburgh Larder: Best Recommendation for Cakes and Scones
Little things count. And Cafe Gray certainly knows this. Their attention to details during our dinner was really what made the overall experience so memorable compared with other fine dining meals I’ve had in Hong Kong. The restaurant is located on the 49th floor of Upper House – a relatively new boutique hotel in Admiralty… Read More Cafe Gray Deluxe: Fine dining with delicious wines and breathtaking view
The froyo craze died down massively a few years ago. We all watched a lot of frozen yogurt outlets open then close around Hong Kong and they are much less prevalent now. Thankfully for survival of the fittest, the best ones seem to still be alive and running right now. By far my favourite froyo… Read More Try this: Chocolate lover frozen yogurt from Smile
