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…

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….

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…
