Review: Godenya

Normally I'm one of the last people to try out a new restaurant in Hong Kong, but as soon as I heard about a tucked-away Japanese restaurant with a sensational sake and food pairing menu, I was intrigued. Not only is Godenya hard to find, it is also very hard to book. The restaurant is… Continue reading Review: Godenya

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
