Chef Vicky is a dear friend and also a fantastic chef that knows the ins and outs of Chinese and French cooking. He’s my King of Soups. And we all know the hallmark of a good Cantonese soup is the rich but subtle flavours – the essence of all the best produce (fish maw, sea […]

It feels like a lifetime ago since we last travelled. I am wistful watching travel documentaries on TV. Our last meal in Paris exactly a year ago was the same week chef Stephanie Le Quellec’s restaurant La Scene got awarded its second star. We stayed on for celebrations with all the other chefs (all men!) […]

This has got to be one of my favourite cities and I’ve tried to pitch several articles for the past year since my first trip there in January 2019 – that feels like a lifetime ago with Covid19 and the temporary halt on everyone’s lives. Instead of buying more time for my next pitches in […]

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 […]

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 […]

I’ve been using the extra time on my hands to sort out my hard drive as well as photos and catch up with the blog. I know we’re all looking forward to the light at the end of the tunnel where Covid19 is dealt with and we can venture out to eat and travel again. […]

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. We can read, dream and gather inspiration and armchair travel in the meanwhile. When all this is over, we can make those plans for our next trips that we’ve always put on […]

My story for Culture Trip after the launch of Beijing’s first Michelin Guide with some of my old and new favourites. I also got to speak to Chinese food authority Fuchsia Dunlop who shed light on the rich offerings of Chinese cuisine. Following the Guide’s China launch in Shanghai and Guangzhou, Beijing’s first Michelin Guide […]

In November 2019, Mr chef’s protegé Wang Bin earned his first Michelin star for his Contemporary European restaurant The Georg. I made a list of his favourites for Culture Trip on where to eat: from Hotpot to Peking duck. This is my longer version as the story I filed was edited down with the word […]

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 […]
