Review: The Alchemist Mail Cafe

After visiting the beautiful "Wearable Blessings" exhibition we were about to leave the Hong Kong Heritage Museum, when we noticed that the usual grim-looking cafe with very limited food selection had changed. It is now "The Alchemist Mail Café" and not only does it look very cosy, with lots of different seating arrangements, it also… Continue reading Review: The Alchemist Mail Cafe

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: Mizuki

I have a new favourite Japanese restaurant: Mizuki in Wan Chai. We found it on Openrice and just went one evening... and two days later we went back again. It's that good. It's tucked away on Thomson Street on the second floor of Mirage Tower. The restaurant is small, about 10 tables and one sushi… Continue reading Review: Mizuki

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
