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 […]

bombana otto e mezzo macau

So, everyone jokingly calls this restaurant my husband’s “canteen”, as Robuchon once was where he’d dine up to four times a week there by himself. As you can see, my cooking at home can never measure up. We head to Ciak and Otto e Mezzo in Hong Kong whenever we’re in town and have our pre-travel dinner […]

mondrian cocktail artesian bar

An old friend I haven’t seen in half a lifetime was in town to cover Art Basel and wanted to try out these art cocktails at Artesian bar. We made our reservations and were seated by the bar as we watched bar tender painstakingly paint on his egg white canvas. We were warned that it […]

The turnout this year was way larger than previous years from my recollection. The lines for tickets purchase were long and the halls packed. I wish I had more time to spend over the week, but I was on a few conference calls while at the exhibition. Still grateful to have made it to Hong […]

I came here during their pre-opening and was great to be back. Chino has a no reservations policy and they only take walk-ins, so get there early. Positioned as a modern Mexican place with Japanese cooking techniques, the food is modern and interesting. Dips are fantastic, appetiser portions small – you’d need to order individually, […]

teakha II hong kong

So, I’ve been a teakha fan for a while, I think since the time I used to live in Hong Kong, but most weekends were spent running like a lunatic to the ferry terminal to get on a ferry to Macau, so I never had the luxury to really enjoy time for tea. So pleased […]

So, I have been travelling a whole lot for work this year and grateful for the opportunities to be out of Macau. But that also meant I haven’t had time to do my Hong Kong sanity runs – since there was less need to be scrambling out to get on the ferry. Thankfully I always […]
