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

Times Square Living Room Museum: The Legend of Lion Dance exhibition

The Living Room Museum at the Times Square is hosting an exhibition about the¬†Legend of Lion Dance. Lion dances are performed to bring luck and to get rid of the devil.

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

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
