Review: Afternoon tea at the Cafe Causette at the Mandarin Oriental

Last Saturday we made a spontaneous decision to visit the Cafe Causette at the Mandarin Oriental - for no specific reason other than Patrick and I had time to spare and we were close by. Patrick had never been before and while I had visited it twice already, I've never tried the afternoon tea. So… Continue reading Review: Afternoon tea at the Cafe Causette at the Mandarin Oriental

Review: Cafe&Meal at Muji

To me, Muji is a great brand - and I love that the shops here in Hong Kong are different than those in the UK and Germany. They also sell food items (mainly baked goods, but also snacks, tea, instant soup and drinks) and they even have a cafe in their Lee Theatre shop. I… Continue reading Review: Cafe&Meal at Muji

Review: Quick dumpling fix

This is one of the cheapest dumpling places in Hong Kong - and it is part of a chain. I don't know the English name, but I can recognise the shop name and look. There is one on the way home on Wan Chai Road, which is a quick stop for me - I usually… Continue reading Review: Quick dumpling fix

Review: Kanizen

This is one of the restaurants (similar to YOUKA) that I've been walking past for so many times without realising it is a restaurant! Kanizen on Thomson Road in Wan Chai. The dark windows and discreet sliding doors make this restaurant hard to spot - but once you open the door you know immediately what… Continue reading Review: Kanizen

Review: Menya Musashi

Sorry - another Ramen post today. As you can tell, I do enjoy eating Ramen. Especially after a hike or workout session! However, this one was enjoyed after work and on my way to the HK Cultural Centre (to enjoy a concert). I was walking towards the Wan Chai Ferry Pier when I noticed that… Continue reading Review: Menya Musashi

Macau: A Lorcha

I don't usually follow tips in travel guides, and if I do I often end up with a mediocre if not bad experience. So I was very wary when we decided to visit A Lorcha, one of the famous (if not the most famous) Portuguese restaurants in Macau. When we arrived at 12:15 for lunch,… Continue reading Macau: A Lorcha

Review: ABC Kitchen

It has taken me such a long time to visit this famous place - I've almost lived three years in Hong Kong and just a few weeks ago it was my first visit to the ABC Kitchen (and I had read so much about it here, here and here). Needless to say that I have… Continue reading Review: ABC Kitchen

Review: Via Tokyo

After our great tonkatsu dinner at Saboten we were really surprised that we had room left for dessert ... but we had heard so many great things about the green tea ice cream at Via Tokyo (just down the street) that we just had to go there. We were lucky, the place was full but… Continue reading Review: Via Tokyo

Review: Saboten in Causeway Bay

Continuing with food this week... we found a new place to enjoy tonkatsu pork cutlet. In the past, we liked to go to the Ginza Bairin in the IFC, but now we prefer Saboten in Causeway Bay (don't confuse it with the Saboten at the Hong Kong International Airport. That's nowhere as good). Saboten is… Continue reading Review: Saboten in Causeway Bay

Review: Brunch at The Grill

What better way is there to spend a lazy Sunday with friends, good food, a big BBQ and lots of sunshine? None. So we decided to return to The Grill at the Grand Hyatt, which is located on the 11th floor next to the pool. It is a great open space in the middle of… Continue reading Review: Brunch at The Grill
