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: 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: 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: 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

Macau: Antonio’s

--- Update June 2014: The restaurant has moved across the street to Rua dos Clerigos No. 7 --- While in Macau, we visited António's, a famous Macanese restaurant. This is the kind of cozy and homey Portuguese restaurant where the chef becomes your friend. Tucked away in one of the quaint alleys in the heart… Continue reading Macau: Antonio’s
