We’ve eaten at Le Petit Nice Passedat several times over the past decade since we started dating and it’s truly one of our favourite three Michelin starred restaurants. Gorgeous sunset views (we always go in the summer), stunning rooms and a full-blown Mediterranean menu with the best of the sea distilled in your plate. I’m […]

Curry puffs and sardines puffs are a big part of my childhood snack. My mother used to buy them from Polar Cake, along with chicken pies for our mid-afternoon after school snacks or sometimes we’d reheat them for breakfast. My cook extraordinaire friend S shared her recipe and I’ve made two batches of this since. […]

I absolutely love Indian food and whilst we don’t have the variety and selection of Singapore’s Little India where I would get my Indian food fix, there are plenty of great options here in Hong Kong for Indian food. We are fans of the northern Indian butter chicken. Nearly a decade a go, I went […]

It’s such a difficult time in the world at the moment and reading about travel probably isn’t the first thing on people’s minds.

Following the Guide’s China launch in Shanghai and Guangzhou, Beijing’s first Michelin Guide […]

This has become one of my favourite places to dine in Paris. Great Italian food at the * Michelin Le George, simple, robust dishes in generous portions. They share the same wine list as the *** Michelin Le Cinq, including more Italian options of course. The menu is heavy on plant-based and seafood – giving […]

This story for the SCMP was a joy to put together as it includes all my favourite things – food, history and culture. You can read the piece here. Macanese cuisine has so many similarities to Singapore’s Eurasian food, along with Peranakan food, thanks to the bustling trade routes and influences from Portugal and its […]

This year’s Food Future Summit in its third year was held at Asia Society – one of my favourite architectural spaces in Hong Kong. A former British military compound used in the production and storage of artillery and ammunition. The future of food looks bright full of animal-free possibilities at Friday’s talks and innovative pop-ups. […]

A piece I wrote for Travel2Next, exploring the history and stories behind Macanese desserts and Portuguese ones that are mainstays on the menu.
