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.

That's nowhere as good). Saboten is… Continue reading Review: Saboten in Causeway Bay

Photography: Bowrington Road Market

Last Sunday, exactly a week ago, I was exploring the area south of Hennessy Road in Wan Chai. It was a grey and cloudy day, but it was a busy day at the Bowrington Road market. The market is located just off Canal Road on the border between Causeway Bay and Wan Chai and it… Continue reading Photography: Bowrington Road Market

18 GRAMS in Hong Kong

After posting about Cafe Corridor it's time to post about another favourite of mine: 18 GRAMS. This tiny coffee shop has locations in Tsim Sha Tsui, Mong Kok and Causeway Bay. To date I've only been to the latter, the Causeway Bay location. It's tucked away in Cannon Street, seconds away from the very busy… Continue reading 18 GRAMS in Hong Kong
