Review: The Alchemist Mail Cafe

After visiting the beautiful "Wearable Blessings" exhibition we were about to leave the Hong Kong Heritage Museum, when we noticed that the usual grim-looking cafe with very limited food selection had changed. It is now "The Alchemist Mail Café" and not only does it look very cosy, with lots of different seating arrangements, it also… Continue reading Review: The Alchemist Mail Cafe

Review: Dim Sum The Art of Chinese Tidbits

Dim Sum restaurants are at almost every corner, here in Hong Kong. But not all of them are good. So they come and go - but some stay. One of these places is "Dim Sum The Art of Chinese Tidbits" (yes, that's the full name) in Happy Valley. It has been around for many years… Continue reading Review: Dim Sum The Art of Chinese Tidbits

Review: Dim Sum at Maxim’s Palace

There is probably NO guide book that does NOT mention the famous Maxim's Palace in Hong Kong's City Hall... but it took me more than four years to give this famous place a go. And the only reason we went is that we were next door at the City Gallery and when we finished walking… Continue reading Review: Dim Sum at Maxim’s Palace

Review: Chi Lin Vegetarian

I was not sure whether I should call it Chi Lin Vegetarian or Nan Lian Garden Vegetarian restaurant... The restaurant is located in the beautiful Nan Lian Garden but of course, as it serves vegetarian food, it also 'belongs' to the Chi Lin nunnery, which is next door. The restaurant is hidden behind a waterfall… Continue reading Review: Chi Lin Vegetarian

Review: OVO Cafe

Now that I know where the Old Wan Chai Market is, I explored the cafe that sits now in the renovated building. It is called OVO Cafe and it sits in a green garden! The cafe shares the location with a flower shop, so no wonder there are orchids, succulents and other plants dotted around… Continue reading Review: OVO Cafe

Review: Mizuki

I have a new favourite Japanese restaurant: Mizuki in Wan Chai. We found it on Openrice and just went one evening... and two days later we went back again. It's that good. It's tucked away on Thomson Street on the second floor of Mirage Tower. The restaurant is small, about 10 tables and one sushi… Continue reading Review: Mizuki

Review: Crystal Jade

Can you believe it? After living more than four years in Hong Kong and eating hundreds if not thousands of dumplings, I have never posted about the restaurant Crystal Jade. I actually had to check my blog and search for restaurant reviews, to see if I really have not mentioned the dumpling heaven... and it… Continue reading Review: Crystal Jade

Review: Han Ah Rum

There are many Korean restaurants all over Hong Kong - and whenever you ask a Korean for their favourite one, they will send you to Kimberley Street in Tsim Sha Tsui. However, if you don't want to travel to Kowloon, then there are several good options on the island-side. One of the is Han Ah… Continue reading Review: Han Ah Rum

Review: Him Kee Hot Pot

Finally it is cool enough to go for Hot Pot - and one of our favourite places is Him Kee, a Szechuan hot pot restaurant tucked away on the first, second and third floors of a building on Jaffe road. The restaurant is easy to miss, if you don't know which stair case to walk… Continue reading Review: Him Kee Hot Pot
