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…

Stayplus Bakery: Taiyaki

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…

Lunch at 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…
