This Kau U Fong spot has been on the lips of a few friends since it opened and a stone’s throw from the apartment, so we went to check it out. It should be a month post opening now. I came here 3 times in a week while I was back in Hong Kong and […]

I loved chef Adam’s cooking at Chachawan and used to eat there regularly. I am happy to report that his new outfit Samsen is just as great, with a focus on more simple food, plenty of appetisers and noodles options. V’s favourite is the egg with chilli jam, it was nice, but my Thai friend PJ […]

It’s been over two years since I’ve been to Little Bao when they had just opened. Menus were fixed and there wasn’t a choice to à la carte. Naturally the baos are fantastic. I always go for the braised pork belly, but there is beef and chicken on the menu. I followed my friend’s lead […]

momojein hong kong korean

One of my old friends was here on a quick visit and we got the Korean connection going. She’s Korean german and her cousin just moved from New York to Hong Kong and I believe that the Koreans always suss out the best spots to get their fix of home made meals. Momojein is a […]

shaved ice

Shaved ice is all the rage these days and I may have just found my favourite spot in Hong Kong. Tucked away in a street in Causeway Bay, Shari Shari is tiny shake with snaking queues for folks waiting for a table. The machine that grates the ice is so silent, the interiors are calm […]

elephant grounds star street copy

Checked this out last month shortly after they opened their new Star Street precinct brunch on Wing Fung St (same street as Saigon Garçon and Oohlala). Unlike most places in Macau that open at 11am-noon, Elephant Grounds opens at 8am, so you can have breakfast and get your morning brew before heading off to work. […]

This is a long overdue post but definitely one of the under rated Chinese restaurants in Hong Kong. Great dimsum, the perfect roast suckling pig and one of my favourite fish soups that reminded me of Singapore’s fish head bee hoon – with the evaporated milk added to thicken and flavour the soup, but there […]

pineapple details sewing

(Fabric bought from the Taipei Yong Le Fabric market – all Japanese textiles) Sewing is my latest obsession as I spend Friday nights in Macau sewing at Studio B with my fabulous teacher, an Central St Martins Alumni. I have started the habit of picking up fabric when I travel and instead of going to […]

hong kong ho lee fook chinese

Love the fortune cat wall of madness and their open kitchen upstairs. This was on my to-eat list for a while so glad we found a chance to get together for a birthday! The food is Chinese with modern twists. We went with the tradition dishes of half a roast goose – perfect. And kurobuta BBQ […]

oddies foodies soft serve hong kong

Oddies Foodies has been around for a while and I am slightly late in the game. Their first outfit is in Wanchai, but I luckily stumbled upon their second store on Gough Street – so perfect opportunity to try their signature “eggette” soft serve for 60HKD. We shared it between two of us and it’s still […]
