I quickly declared Lisbon as my favourite city in Europe after my solo trip to Porto and Lisbon last year. The colourful houses, steep hills and cobbled streets won me over immediately. The sunshine and bustle of people during the summer made the Portuguese charm even more irresistible. So when I heard a couple of friends were… Read More Eat and Drink with Locals in Lisbon
Dinner buffets are sometimes shunned for their subpar quality of food. But growing up with younger siblings, it was almost a ritual for any of our family celebrations. So no matter how un-classy loving buffets may seem, they do secretly have a place in my heart. They tend to be an especially apt choice when… Read More Cafe at Hyatt Regency: A Seafood Lover’s Buffet
Seafood restaurants have always been a thing in my family – almost all of us are in love with every single type of seafood. So we used to go regularly to Sing Kee in Sai Kung, our favourite restaurant for a lobster feast. But since its quality of service rapidly deteriorated, I have been itching to find another place… Read More Table: Killer Lobster Bisque and Depurated Seafood
I love my epic brunches on weekends but I’m a bit polarised on weekdays. Sometimes I will get by with a salad or homemade lunchbox, other days I’ll go all out on a lunch buffet because I feel like something epic (usually Thursdays). At Lily & Bloom, for HK$298, you get their 1) Lunch Market Feast… Read More Lily & Bloom: Treat Yourself to an Epic Weekday Lunch
I didn’t expect a lot local food when planning my trip to Koh Samui. I’ve been here twice before (about 8-10 years ago) and back then it was all about edge-of-the-cliff restaurants, buying cheapy tshirts and drinking in Chaweng. Since then, I realised the view is pitch black if you’re having dinner, I never ended… Read More Koh Samui: Fisherman’s Village Food Street
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!
I definitely agree that it’s hard to keep up with all the new restaurants opening up in Hong Kong, but The First Floor by Lifestyle Federation is one of the latest hitting Central that’s definitely worth some spotlight. On inspecting the stylishly beautiful interior, including a kitchen demonstration table, I couldn’t help but ask more… Read More The First Floor by Lifestyle Federation: New on Duddell St
When asking for the Best Steakhouse in Hong Kong, Morton’s Steakhouse and Intercontinental’s Steakhouse + Winebar Grill will almost always be the two answers you get – an answer I completely agree with too. Both places serve absolutely excellent quality USDA rib eye steaks for a roughly similar price and I do struggle to decide which place wins the “Best Steak… Read More Morton’s Steakhouse: Favourite in Hong Kong
I never thought I was a fan of Portuguese food. After sampling most of the popular ones in Macau, I decided I didn’t like any. But apparently Portuguese food is quite different from Macanese food, the latter is of course what you’d find in Macau instead. Still without knowing the differences, my meal at Casa Lisboa has definitely reignited… Read More Casa Lisboa: Real Portuguese food in Heart of Hong Kong
I loved Tasmania for its fresh seafood and local produce – I randomly bought one tomato from Woolworths supermarket to eat with a salad and it was, no exaggeration, the best I’ve tasted. But I’d be casually citing cliches if I said it was “hard to name the best” food or meal I had in Tas… Read More Tasmania: Where to eat the best fresh oysters?
