This is our default Sunday brunch place when we wake up and don’t know where to go. Aux Beaux Arts is always a good idea and I always end up ordering the same thing, half a dozen of escargots followed by mussels and fries or the chicken stuffed with foie gras. It never fails me. […]

So, the new Hello Kitty restaurant in Hong Kong is the new rage globally and a big hit on social media, so how could I miss the opportunity to visit and write about it – and build more social equity around it? I am fortunate and grateful that I still have sporting gourmet friends who […]

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 […]

Someone asked me the other day where’s the best service I’ve ever experienced and it occurred to me that I never got round to raving about our dinner at Le Royal Mansour in Marrakech. The intuitive, white glove seamless non-intrusive service – where your next thought is anticipated before you can voice it and they’re […]

Fado is one of my (new-ish) go to spot for Portuguese food, a little more contemporary, beautiful modern setting with lots of light and they cook certain dishes at your table. It’s a little less heavy than the usual dishes you’d order at the Portuguese restaurants in down. I’ve been here several times now and the […]

Year end de-cluttering and trying to finish up my food and travel posts before end of 2014! I’m revisiting lots of photos from our last trip back to France in September. We had a quick and very enjoyable lunch at Jean François Piège’s Thoumieux brasserie, which I’d highly recommend as a pitstop before hitting the shops […]

  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 […]

The  more discreet other half of Yardbird in a even more discreet location to find (grey metal door with no signage), and unlike it’s hip other half’s no reservation policy – Ronin thankfully takes reservations in this much smaller and intimate space. The menu at Ronin is also slightly different, but short sweet and simple […]

Chez Serge is one of the best address in Carpentras and many living in the Provence region drive over just to dine here. Well, it’s truffle season and the menu speaks nothing but truffles. The cosy beautiful space in the middle of Provence, but I unfortunately didn’t feel that the food nor service deserved any […]

  This is one of Macau’s oldest and best traditional roast pigeon restaurant that continues to rest on its PR laurels. The roast pigeon is good, but not worth the trip just for this. This second restaurant is an addition to the first Fat Siu Lau on Rua da Felicidade, the old red light district when […]
