Travelling and spending time in Berlin feels like such a long time ago. One of our gastro highlights was a splurge at one of Berlin’s several one Michelin starred restaurants. A former Jewish primary school for girls turned fine dining without an air of stuffiness. Service is casual – like every trendy hipster in the […]

Brand new dessert spot in Causeway Bay. While not my cup of tea, I can see how the concept will work in the Hong Kong market. Props to the three friendly and dynamic young owners on this start up and trying their hands at creative desserts. So, what’s on the menu? A mish mash of […]

My friend Normandy, an old Macau hand who’s been coming here for the last decade recommended dinner here – she swears that nothing has changed since. It’s still the same Portuguese chef running the kitchen and his Macanese wife at the front. We were greeted with familiarity and I suspect – extra special service because […]

In April, I was invited to London flagging the gastro flag for Hong Kong and Macau to join Chowtzer’s global network of food writers and bloggers and unexpectedly picked up the World’s Best Bird Award for Yat Lok – there were many fast feast contenders and I’m thrilled that the hole in the wall diner […]

Several of my friends owned sidecars in Beijing and I commuted several times in them, it’s fun, but my main and preferred transport remains the humble bicycle. We started with a stop at the local quarters and a little tour through the market, frogs and all on sale alongside noodle and dumpling makeshift stalls.   […]

The restaurant most recently scored 1 Michelin star in the 2014 guide, which I’m not sure if it’s worthy to join the stellar ranks, but since hole-in-the-wall restaurants like Tim Ho Wan or the whole chain of Lei Gardens have one star too… it’s hard to comprehend the Hong Kong & Macau Guide ratings, as […]

Little Bao HK is one of my new favourites. While still in it’s soft opening phase this week, they’ve done a brilliant job filling bellies and every seat in the house. The interiors are simple, all counter seats, one facing the kitchen where all the action takes place, the other facing the wall – pick […]

We recently found our favourite neighbourhood noodle shop, just a 10 minute walk from our place, and the best part is they open till 3am and do delivery as well! Absolutely perfect for chefs who get home from work no earlier than 1130pm. The soups here are hearty, rich and thick and the handmade pulled […]

One of the City of Dream’s new fine dining establishments, Jade Dragon is truly a restaurant to take guests you want to impress. The interiors are stunning – tall traditional Chinese medicinal cabinets decorated with ornate Chinese art pieces. The food and service – impeccable. We couldn’t find a single fault. We were given a […]

The chatter on weibo 微博,twitter’s Chinese counterpart says that this restaurant does the best gongbao chicken 宫保鸡丁 in the city. While it was a well executed dish, this restaurant actually caters more to the Northern palates, adapting famous Sichuan dishes to make them more accessible. It probably wasn’t the best I’ve had, but was pretty […]
