Yum Cha 飲茶

  Guys, I think this restaurant is encouraging us to play with our food! We’ve all seen the cute dim sum dishes circulating on Instagram from Yum Cha, a chain restaurant with a modern approach or as they say it, “a playful twist on traditional Chinese cuisine”. There’s a point to that, because what’s not to put…

Mong Kok Chinese New Year Flower Market : Food Guide

The hype is dawning upon the city as Hong Kongers are bustling around to buy decorations for the Chinese New Year. It’s one of the most anticipated celebrations around here, with traditional Chinese foods like radish cake and nian gao, floral decorations and visiting relatives and families. So what’s better than squeezing in with the…

Crosstown Doughnuts

Who eats a snack right before dinner?! And a doughnut?!!!! ME! I mean how do I resist going in the shop to take a look after seeing so many HAPPY people inside. I actually just had a cupcake from Crumbs & Dollies (you can see my review here) and I was en route to dinner…

Howies Restaurant

Straight from the cold, I stepped into this cozy looking restaurant with dim yellow lights (it was actually quite warm). Okay, it was only 2 degrees, so maybe I was exaggerating to all Brits out there in saying that it was freezing cold, but hey! I was hungry and cold, and i just needed some…

Brunch (Edinburgh)

Another morning at Edinburgh and I’m off to look for some good food to start my day off. There were a few other cafes open at 9am in the morning, but this menu caught my eye, with so much more offered than just a full Scottish breakfast or the classic eggs benedict. The restaurant was…

Edinburgh Christmas Market

I knew there would be something brewing there when I saw the big ferris wheel, crazy breath-taking rides and the brightly lit streets decorated with fairy lights. So naturally I was drawn to take a look at this crowd-attracting christmas market. Note to readers: sorry to offend anyone but as a foodie, my main reason…

Woods

After navigating my way through Mong Kok only to find that my chosen restaurant opens in the late afternoon, I began walking back along the main street, thinking of going to one of the malls. That’s when I found Woods, which I had surprisingly never spotted. The restaurant was not busy at all, with only…

Oddies

I finally took my lazy butt all the way to Sheung Wan just to try Oddies after it had been waiting on my “to-try foods list” for nearly 2 years when the whole bubble waffles paired with ice-cream became trendy across the internet. Unfortunately, Oddies is a bit hard to find and I wouldn’t have been…

Ciao Chow

I’ve always been big on Italian food, but ever since turning vegetarian, the easiest things to turn to is pasta and pizza, so I was really excited when Ciao Chow opened their second branch in HK. Unlike most Italian restaurants, Ciao Chow serves Italian food as a deli, so you go up to the counter…

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…
