Grassroots Pantry

This has been amongst my list of vegetarian restaurants to try, but unfortunately it’s also one of those lists that I make but never end up doing anything on it. BUT!!! I finally visited Grassroots Pantry for dinner as a decision to stop eating those mushroom / pesto pastas or margherita pizzas on night outs….

Owl’s Choux: cream puff

Having seen lots of advertisements about Owl’s Choux who has a Michelin star in their pockets, I jumped at the chance when I spotted the pop-up store in Langham Place, Mong Kok. Since it was a pop-up store, they only served cream puffs that were ready made and packaged, as well as gelato. This means…

DONDONYA

I’m sure you’ve all seen that trendy video of a highly skilled Japanese chef whipping up this amazing dish called Omurice (watch it if you haven’t already) with the runny scrambled egg pouring all over the rice when the omelette is cut open in the middle. Well point is, I’ve been craving some good runny…

Bread Street Kitchen

Opened by the hot-headed celebrity chef we all know from Masterchef, Hell’s kitchen, Hotel hell… Bread Street Kitchen is the place to get a taste of Gordan Ramsay’s culinary ideas and standards without all the drama. Located in Lan Kwai Fong, it is just a 10 minute walk from the nearest MTR exit. Since the…

McDonalds: Cheesecake ice-cream

With the minions craze going on since July, McDonalds has teamed up to offer cheesecake ice-cream, mango flavoured drinks, crepe cakes, and minion-shaped hash browns which I have yet to try but they look cute (Ok, I admit they do look a little out of shape in potato form). The special cheesecake flavoured ice-cream can only be found at the…

llaollao

Tucked away snugly by the corner just below the atrium of Times Square (to the left of the escalators) lies llaollao, a frozen yoghurt shop that I’ve walked past multiple times without thinking of stopping to try it out as there always seems to be a specific place in Causeway Bay that I’m hurrying to…

Dazzling Café Garden (Lunch)

It’s not my first time going to Dazzling cafe, a Taiwanese cafe serving up some Western dishes like pasta and burgers. However, they are known for their outrageously dazzling desserts, such as the box toast or their waffles. I wouldn’t describe them as outrageous, like those freakshakes you see online that are loaded with a whole…

The Poké Co

After scrolling down my instagram feed and seeing poke bowls, the inner hippy in me knew that I had to try it. Luckily, I found 3 restaurants in Hong Kong, so I decided to give Poke Co. a try. The setting of the restaurant was quite nice, giving you teenage youthful feeling of eating Poke…

Chocolate macaron

Time to give the feared macarons another try again. Out of the previous 7+ attempts at a range of different flavours, only 2 had come out completely perfect– nice feet, no cracks, no collapsing… Frankly, I have to admit that this batch wasn’t one of the perfect ones, but it was still good enough to…

Sweet House Cha Cha: matcha & milk twist

Summer days drifting away to oh, oh the summer nights. That’s right! It was a hot summer night smack in the middle of June so what do I do after dinner? I go for ice-cream. Just a heads up, I only had french fries for dinner so I guess I’m entitled to more. Sweets House…

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…
