Mammy Pancake in Causeway Bay

My children love anything and everything that is sweet - and they are big fans of waffles and pancakes. Usually we don't have the time or patience to wait for our turn at the long queue at Mammy Pancake, but during the last few days we've been lucky: the queue was not too long and… Continue reading Mammy Pancake in Causeway Bay

Planet J Kids Indoor Playroom

One of the newer indoor playrooms in Hong Kong is inside the shopping mall Windsor House in Causeway Bay. It is called Planet J Kids and is located on Floor 13. On the one hand this is very convenient in the heart of the shopping district, but of course, on the other hand this means… Continue reading Planet J Kids Indoor Playroom

Review: Kaya Korean

Our favourite Korean restaurant on the island side is Han Ah Rum, but sometimes we are not in the mood of queuing up or booking in advance - and we also don't always want to grill our own BBQ. So in that case, we sometimes go to other Korean restaurants, like Kaya on the 9th… Continue reading Review: Kaya Korean

TramOramic Tour

I was recently invited on a sightseeing trip of a very different style - not on a bus or boat, but on a tram. Hong Kong Tramways has just launched the TramOramic Tour, which is a 1-hour sightseeing journey aboard a unique 1920s style tram with authentic tales of local life. A few days ago… Continue reading TramOramic Tour

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

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: Dim Sum at Jade Garden

The other morning I met up with lovely H-J and baby Olive from WaterfallsAndCaribous - and we had dim sum at Jade Garden in Causeway Bay. This restaurant is apparently one of the top ten (well, if you believe the Time Out magazine - but the ladies with the trolleys have disappeared since the article… Continue reading Review: Dim Sum at Jade Garden
