L’Assiette Champenoise is a gorgeous hotel with an exceptional breakfast and the wait staff at breakfast are lovely, friendly and speak fluent English. Everything comes to your table at the start, homemade butter, salted caramel, chocolate, confiture and caramelised condensed milk (dulce de leche)! You are spoilt for choice and probably go without lunch which is […]

A very belated post from our last trip back to France in September caught in the middle of the Air France strike which gave us an extra day in Paris along with the inconvenience, but I choose the positives about it all. So, the best meal of our trip was at 3 Michelin Starred L’Astrance […]

  A few summers ago we ate at the brasserie in St Germain at Le Chardenoux which was great, but I much prefer Le Quinzième. The husband worked with chef Cyril over a decade ago when they all began their promising start at Le Jardin Des Sens helmed by the twin Pourcel brothers. That same […]

Dining here was the highlight of our Summer, our best meal of Summer 2013! I took 2 Michelin starred Chef Bernard eating around Hong Kong earlier this year and explaining Cantonese food to him. I didn’t have a chance to try his masterpieces when he was cooking in Macau, and was promised a meal of […]

I’ve been wandering around less these days and going to more ladies lunches and I have to say that Macau’s standards of dimsum and Cantonese cuisine surpasses Hong Kong. Of late, we’ve dined at quite a few fine Cantonese restaurants from Jade Dragon (surely it will get starred in the Michelin guide 2014?), Wynn’s 2* […]

Autumn’s almost here and it’s been some crazy days and weeks in a blur as I catch up on archived draft posts. One of our highlights this summer was going to Girona to dine at the world’s No. 2 restauarant after Noma. A stunning space, excellent service and a wine list with unbelievably reasonable prices. […]

I’m back on 4 hour sleeps a night, answering emails, fixing photos and personal blogging after tapering down recently to avoid burnout. The new site design is on its way with a new logo to boot. We had brunch here months back and ordered more than enough for two. While the service was excellent and […]

I ate alot this year, from Michelin starred restaurants, private kitchens, house parties, hawker centres to da pai dongs… there were some bad meals, alot of average meals, but so very few excellent ones. Here’s my top 10 and most memorable meals of 2011 in no particular order. 1. Local pork chop noodles in Macau, […]

I’ve read and heard all about Spoon but never made it down to the Intercon. I also heard marvelous things about their steak and the whole fanfare with over 20 mustards to choose from as well as a generous selection of sides. Anyway, we did date night at Spoon—loved the tasteful décor, great ambience, beautifully […]

I forgot about dinner here, that’s not to say it wasn’t great, it was our last Michelin starred meal on the trip and we were so stuffed with rich food all week that we couldn’t finish the full dégustation menu. Food here is alot more classic and needless to say a whole lot more rich, […]
