Cheesecake Factory

It’s nearly been 2 months since Cheesecake Factory opened in Hong Kong! I know all the keen foodies in HK would have flocked to Tsim Sha Tsui to try out the food early on in the month, but here’s my review on this franchise store of the amazing American dream a month later. First impressions:…

Banana Muffins

Got a load of super ripe bananas and don’t know what to do with them? Well you must have heard of how bananas are the sweetest when the skin is covered with black spot, and that’s exactly what I got today. So I’m giving you this mouth-watering banana muffin recipe that I’ve used for nearly…

Stayplus Bakery

Just finished lunch at Sai Kung but when you know you’re going to be walking some “distances” (maybe a mile next to the pier), you will want to be holding a snack in your hand, so I jumped at the chance when I saw this little bakery. There was a line when I arrived, so…

Piccolo’s

If you’re looking for a little trip away from the city centre, Sai Kung would do it, especially with the walk along the piers after a hearty meal. At Sha Tsui Path, you’ll find many Western restaurants ranging from the burger to brunch to tacos. I tried Jaspa’s, which is hard to miss with its colourful…

(No sugar) Waffles

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums out there in the world! Thank you so much for everything you’ve done and being a mum 24/7 non-stop. This week, I’m sharing my easy waffle recipe with all of you keen foodies out there who might be looking for a simple recipe to make for breakfast for Mother’s…

Cinnamon Rolls

I’ve been waiting to share this for ages. It has become my breakfast, tea AND dessert everyday for a week, and no, I’m not bored of it yet. Cinnamon is one of the things I discovered a bit later in life, and I still remember my distaste for cinnamon just 2 years ago. However, my brain…

Hasselback Sweet Potato

So if you’ve been keeping up with the latest trends, you’re bound to have seen this ingenious creation circulating around the internet. Potatoes + cheese: we have loaded cheese fries, potato gratin, potato skins, baked potato… But this one, it’s like a hybrid of tornado chips on a stick but elevated into a lunch-worthy dish. I’m…

No Machine Cookies n’ Cream Icecream

The summer months are coming up and everyone is looking for THE dessert without having to leave home. SO… I’ve finally decided to give this “2 ingredient no machine ice-cream” trend a try after years of lagging behind. I had made no machine ice-cream a few times where you were supposed to mix the mixture…

Häagen-Daz: Green Tea Ice-cream Sandwich

I know it’s a strange time to be reviewing an ice-cream sandwich- fresh out of the cold month of March, but sometimes when these cravings hit you, you just gotta cave in, you get me? So yeah, I ended up going to the supermarket around 9pm at night just to buy some ice-cream. I’ve had…

Carrot Cake Cupcakes

I admit I’m a little late to the carrot cake party, but hey, that doesn’t mean I’m not absolutely head over heels them now! I’d say these cupcakes are more to the muffin side as they’re more moist compared to a traditional cupcake, but they’re still absolutely delicious, especially when they’re covered in my cream…

Cream Cheese Frosting

Cream cheese frosting is just one of those things that gives such a unique flavour, totally different from a tradition frosting, which to me is just overly sweet and tasteless (I hope I’m not insulting too many people out there). Adding the cream cheese allows you to cut back on the sugar and gives the…

Chickpea Patties with Coleslaw

If you’re looking for a healthy alternative or just to try a new dish, these chickpea patties are totally the thing for you. It’s such a throw-together dish of whatever you have in your kitchen pantry, as long as you have a can of chickpeas of course. I love chickpeas, and I’ve been thinking of…
