I have to admit I have little clue where to eat in Kowloon. My friends come here often for breakfast Thosai, and recommended I try their pretty tasty South Indian vegetarian food. This set lunch was a bunch of everything – lentils, chickpeas, okra, pickled vegetables over a spiced pea rice and naan. Delish. This chain […]

I’ve been meditating more often and regularly these days as I prepare for a 10 day Vipassana retreat in May. I find guided meditations much easier to follow than sitting silently with my own thoughts. Here at Hoca Foundation Hong Kong, the Seoul/Berlin-based artist Jeongmoon Choi incorporates a 30 minutes guided meditation sitting under her […]

We were pleasantly surprised by the food here at the Chinese restaurant of Hong Kong Club – great Peking duck and BBQ roasts along with dimsum dishes. Our friends invited us over for weekend brunch at the Hong Kong club. Country clubs used to be a middle class thing in Singapore while we were growing […]

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 […]
