    1. narukiyo-tokyo-2-150x150.jpg

      There are so many fantastic restaurants in Tokyo that planning where to eat during your stay can be a bit overwhelming. Many well-established restaurants begin taking reservations upwards of a month in advance, so if you’re not in the know, you’ll likely miss out on an opportunity to have a fantastic meal. While many of these restaurants tend to be quite fancy, I discovered a hidden gem that I want to share with you: Narukiyo Tokyo. This restaurant only serves an omakase menu (meaning there is no menu), has insanely fun vibes (sit around the kitchen counter for added entertainment while enjoying the chef’s playlist and the awkward yet hilarious phallic objects scattered about the restaurant), and is basically guaranteed to be one of the best nights you’ll have in Tokyo.

      Vibe at Narukiyo Tokyo

      The restaurant has a large open kitchen with about 10 seats around it. If at all possible, make sure you sit there. There’s also seating in a separate dining area if you’re with a larger group, but I promise that your experience will be much better if you can see all the action in the kitchen.

      I had a fantastic seat at the kitchen counter where a massive black flying penis was hanging down from the ceiling, practically in front of my face (no, seriously.. check out the photos above). Aside from phallic references (and by references, I mean straight up penises) everywhere you turn, the restaurant may seem a bit underwhelming when you first walk in.

      A few minutes after we were seated, we really got into the vibe of the whole place. Expect funky music (they had on a bit of rock while we were there) compliments of whatever the chef (who was hilarious and was wearing a pin that read “I love sex”) is feeling like that evening, a view into what’s going on in the kitchen, and lots of laughter and smiles among the other diners.

      Omakase Menu

      Here’s the thing about dining at Narukiyo. There’s no menu. We literally sat down, asked for sake, and then our food slowly began to arrive. Prior to making our reservation, we had heard that the chef actually determines what he’s going to serve you based on your appearance. So, my understanding is, if you show up looking all fancy and whatnot, you can expect many delicious courses, but be prepared to spend a pretty penny on your meal.

      We began with a bowl of cold local vegetables that were simple, but delicious. A plate of medium rare wagyu beef came next that we shared. The wagyu was oddly chewy, but the flavor was great. I’m not a massive seafood fan, so I was slightly skeptical when a box of cold fish was put in front of us. Thankfully, the fish was quite good (bones and all!), albeit messy to eat. One of my favorite dishes was the raw bonito fish with a light peanut sauce, which was incredibly fresh. We then shared a large plate of fresh sashimi, including octopus, salmon, tuna, and some other fish that I honestly can’t remember (sorry; we were two bottles of sake in at this point!) aside from the fact that everything was insanely good.

      The chef makes fresh wasabi by grating the wasabi root. If you’ve never had fresh wasabi, you should definitely try it – the taste is much different (read: much better) than what you’re likely used to. Next up, we each had an individual plate of asparagus and tomato. This must have been the largest asparagus I have ever seen, though I’ll admit I felt the dish was random. We finished up our meal with a sharing plate of artichoke with salt.

      During our meal, we began chatting with a couple of fun guys who sat beside us and they ended up ordering a giant vase (with a penis handle, of course) of strawberries and cream. Aside from the hilarity that ensued from the condensed milk drizzled everywhere, these were some of the best strawberries I’ve ever had.

      Verdict

      All together, we had 7 courses (excluding the strawberries), three of which were individual and four of which we shared. When we were done our meal (we did have to tell our waiter to stop bringing the food out, otherwise I think dishes would have kept coming), a little piece of paper with the total came out. There was no individualized pricing for each dish, so I honestly have no clue how much each cost (though, if I do remember correctly, each flask of sake we had was ¥1,600 and we had three flasks over the course of our 3.5~ hour meal). In the end, our entire bill was ¥20,700.

      You’ll be guaranteed an evening of fun and great food at Narukiyo Tokyo. I would definitely recommend checking it out on your next visit to Tokyo, just be sure to make reservations ahead of time and ask for a seat around the kitchen.

    2. 繼續華欣親子玩水之旅遊記:Day 1 舟車勞頓太累了,所以第二天決定好好休養生息,留在 Resort 內Hea玩;由於 Novotel Hua Hin Cha Am Beach Resort & Spa 鄰近海灘,又有特多小孩玩樂設施,其實行程也不算Hea,兩兄妹都玩等非常充實!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B115.jpg

       

      在華欣首個早上的寧靜,由Matthew的驚叫劃破 「我的牙齒不見了!!!」是的,海口之旅開始前,五歲半的豬仔下門牙已經搖搖欲墜,一直忍到爸媽海口回來,再出發到泰國、半夜才脫落,也算生生性性了~

       

      FullSizeRender.jpg

       

      都說我們一家生理時間準到不得了,Matthew醒的時間大概是泰國時間6:00(香港時間7:00),正好可以出來看日出;不過剛掉牙的傻豬仔,心情是有一點落莫的....

       

      FullSizeRender%2B4.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B3.jpg

       

      大家都給Matthew吵醒了,所以也一起安坐海景露台上看日出。印象中,這也是一家四口首次一起看日出,寧靜優美的海面,充分映照旭日初升的光彩,那景色是極美的!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B11.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B7.jpg

       

      時間太早,連自助早餐還未開,我們索性在晨光之下好好採索一下 Resort 了!由於面對正東,雖然時間早但日光已經很猛烈,令人不能直視,還是Chloe妹妹醒目,戴了黑超上陣~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B9.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B6.jpg

       

      黑超妹妹真的太型了,非常搶鏡;加上Matthew脫牙後更不願意出鏡,這幾天下來,兩兄妹的影片/照片數量非常懸殊呢!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B21.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B16.jpg

       

      住在 Resort 可以零距離親親大自然,這是再華麗的酒店也比不上的。兩兄妹又特別喜歡玩水,屋苑的泳池要明天才開始開放,見到池水的Chloe,率先忍不住要去摸摸池水了~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B18.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B22.jpg

       

      由泳池再走幾步就到沙灘。沙灘也分為酒店區域,以及公眾區域,前者有不少沙灘椅床,讓人躺著曬太陽,後者就連接一望無際的大海,不過早上時間潮漲,露出的沙地面積不多,我們也只隨便走走看看~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B24.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B25.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B27.jpg

       

      在這邊河海交流的位國,隱隱約約傳出一陣臭味,估計是當地人將污水都排在河流內,慢慢流出海面了... 長年累月這樣下去,對生態的影響當然不好,希望政府可以做點事吧!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B32.jpg

       

      有臭味爸爸也很少理,專心一致在拍妹妹去了~事實上,Chloe扔貝殼的樣子的確很搞笑,有興趣就看看相關影片吧(但會劇透了其他行程,大家自己考慮要不要看)~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B28.jpg

       

       

      特別一提,在我們拍照時,也留意到有人出海撈魚,成績還不錯的!所以說,更加應該好好保護海洋生態健康~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B30.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B34.jpg

       

      踏完沙稍稍沖一沖腳,我們又回 Resort 去玩吊床~ 這間 Novotel 有特多吊床,Matthew非常愛上去躺,不過就不滿意妹妹推的力度小,最愛就是爸爸大力推,幾乎要飛脫才滿意!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B38.jpg

       

       

      逛了近一小時,再來多張合照後,肚子開始打鼓,也是時間去吃早餐啦!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B43.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B40.jpg

       

      自助早餐位於酒店3樓(也可以望到海景),我們在套票後額外加錢訂的,印象中每天HKD220左右。其實在外邊餐廳吃,160銖就有早餐了,但還是在酒店內吃高興。

       

      FullSizeRender%2B42.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B45.jpg

       

      由於食物選擇極多,同時餐廳人也極多,只拍了最愛的水果區及蜂蜜;泰國不少自助餐廳都有蜂蜜,真好,最喜歡早餐時段吃這些健康食品了!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B2.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B7.jpg

       

      總覺得泰國吃的泰國易消化,早上起來已經挺餓,加上逛了一個圈再來吃,胃口特別好,下面兩張都是甜魔媽媽的早餐內容,夠豐富吧?

       

      FullSizeRender%2B41.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B44.jpg

       

      吃飽飽差不多9時,Kid's World 也開門了,貪玩的兩兄妹急不及待要飛去玩囉!

         

      FullSizeRender%2B13.jpg

       

      除卻開放時間(9am-7pm)稍嫌不夠長,這個免費內進享用的兒童中心實在沒得輸:繩網波波池、滑梯、彩色軟墊區、化妝更衣區、迷你小屋、Rody小膠馬、LEGO玩具、兒童洗手間一應俱全,設備也算新淨企理,兩兄妹樂壞了!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B49.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B52.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B60.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B51.jpg

       

       

      FullSizeRender%2B58.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B56.jpg

       

      很記得在 英基 試堂時,看到「Play is the highest form of research」,心中不能同意更多。一個安全舒適又乾淨的玩樂環境,對於小孩真的很重要,為它而訂這 Resort 是正確的!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B68.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B50.jpg

       

      轉個頭,兩兄妹分別化身為 Elsa 還有 SpiderMan,吸引了爸媽瘋狂拍照~沒辦法,Elsa妹妹真的太嬌俏,而Spider Matthew實在太肥美了,特別是...!!!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B55.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B54.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B61.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B48.jpg

       

      SpiderMan 妹妹也特別嬌俏!中心還有 T shirt painting lesson,可以給小孩及家長報名,不過我們沒參加了。

       

      FullSizeRender%2B59.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B53.jpg

       

      另一邊是給家長休息的園地,除了吊椅又有圓形電子遊戲機座,老公常在裡面打躉!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B70.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B72.jpg

       

      場內也有收費遊戲,每局10銖(匯率:HKD 1 = THB 4.27),需要零錢可向中心職員換領;用不完也不打緊,在外邊一樣可以用。

       

      FullSizeRender%2B73.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B65.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B66.jpg

       

      也有對打 Pool Table 及 Air hockey 可玩,後者一局也是10銖,另一邊沒拍的位置還有 Mac 機可以上網。

       

      FullSizeRender%2B67.jpg

       

      在 Kid's World 內還有 Kid's Movie Centre,時間表如下,在沒有 schedule 的時間也可以選其他心水電影來播!最後,雖然沒拍,但另一邊更有數張BB床睡房,如果參加 Kid's full day / half day camp (299銖起),就會派得上用場~

       

      IMG_9527.JPG

       

      FullSizeRender%2B71.jpg

       

      天氣那麼好,在 Kid's World 玩樂一小時後,兩隻又急不及候要去玩水了!好吧,上房更衣以及塗上一層厚厚的防曬(非常重要!!)後,一起下去滑水及嬉水吧~~~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B74.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B76.jpg

       

      玩水前發現了這新建起的充氣彈跳床,以及另一邊的彈床,雖然要收費,但費用合理只150銖/位就可以玩上一天 (嚴格是10am - 6:00pm),也算划算,就讓兩兄妹去玩~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B78.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B81.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B79.jpg

       

      不過上午陽光直射實在熱(下午西斜時來玩會爽很多),所以兩兄妹玩了一會,就忍不住要跳下水了!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B75.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B88.jpg

       

      這個Chloe,笑容真的太融化人了;加上Matthew走的太快,人及相機都很難追蹤,別怪媽媽我老是拍著妹妹啊~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B82.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B8.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B85.jpg

       

      熱身後Chloe也游遠了,這時Matthew卻由滑水道下來了,馬上舉起相機拍下珍貴一刻!看了影片的,大概會知道:這條滑水道坐著瀡不算太快,但如躺平就會超極快,刺激不得了!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B77.jpg

       

      學會了游泳的Matthew也大展身手,在這水深1.8米的成人池來回游了很多圈;媽媽我怕曬,不敢跟跟他們游,趁爸爸看守出去買水了~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B84.jpg

       

      大家可能都聽過:泰國的水不能喝,其實我無法肯定,但的確水龍頭出來的水會有點黃... 安全起見,情願麻煩一點去7-11買水喝,反正飲用水價格不貴,是有點重而已。

       

      FullSizeRender%2B87.jpg

       

      酒店外泊著不少單車,應該可以出租;如非帶著兩兄妹,兩口子在附近踏單車,踏累了就去做 foot / oil massage,應該也幾寫意~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B89.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B96.jpg

       

      難得這天獨個出來,就為 Resort 外的一條橫街拍了不少照片,畢竟,這樣滿佈花草、鄉村風的非城鎮小街,在香港/曼谷都很難見了~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B91.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B99.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B94.jpg

       

      除了較大型的 Resort,以及散佈的幾個景點(三大水上樂園、Night Market、一個大型商場),整個華欣區其實都頗為窮鄉僻壤,這條靠著 Resort 發展的小街算很旺場了,內容以小餐室、乾洗店 (每公斤只70-75銖!!)、按摩店(200銖起...)為主,消費都不貴。

       

      FullSizeRender%2B92.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B97.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B104.jpg

       

      不知是太曬還是外國遊客白天愛睡,日間街上人不多,故也只有半數餐廳營業,感覺滿冷清的;去到夜晚反而更加旺場,當然還是不能與曼谷鬧市相比。

       

      FullSizeRender%2B102.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B103.jpg

       

      其實我還是比較愛拍自然生態,街上的花草、果木,通通都給我收集在相機記憶體中了!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B100.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B105.jpg

       

      在植物繁多的室外,有一點也很重要,就是防蚊;除了自帶精油,7-11也有好用的天精草本防蚊噴霧,這次也買了來加強效力。買了水,也是時間回去接兩兄妹梳洗,然後一同午餐!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B95.jpg

       

      去旅行累的原因之一是幫兩兄妹洗澡:在 Resort 二人閒閒地一天洗2-3次澡,大部分時間都是媽媽代勞,還要處理二人的污衣(通常都是簡單洗然後拿出露台曬)、為他們更衣,等等...

       

      FullSizeRender%2B107.jpg

       

      還好,為Chloe更衣絕對是種樂趣,看著她性感小背心出場,再加上副黑超,那型格的樣子真的很逗很逗~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B109.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B110.jpg

       

      雖然早餐吃得挺飽,但又玩又游了一個上午,大家都餓了,這天來了 3PINONG 吃午餐。雖然店名寫著酒樓,裡面並沒中菜,而是像首晚的 JO & AOF 一樣同時供應泰菜及西餐。

       

      FullSizeRender%2B114.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B106.jpg

       

      大概這家 Novotel 出了名接家庭客,而小孩都對西餐有偏愛,基本上整條街的餐廳都同時供應泰菜、西菜(規模特小的小吃店例外),而且店內都有不少玩具法寶,像這天侍者就搬了一整箱玩具來!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B108.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B120.jpg

       

      邊玩玩具的同時,兩兄妹要求的牛肉芝士漢堡上檯了,漢堡味道不錯的,Matthew乖乖吃了自己的一半,可惡Chloe卻只顧著吃薯條... 還好同上有一兜沙律醬,後來引她撈飯吃。

       

      FullSizeRender%2B121.jpg

       

      雞絲湯河也是點給兩兄妹分享的,還好妹妹對河粉接受度很高,這天也吃了不少。

       

      FullSizeRender%2B119.jpg

       

      而對於兩口子,每天必吃是冬蔭功湯,酸辣得宜、香氣十足,那份正宗美好滋味,提起也會留口水!

      FullSizeRender%2B116.jpg

       

      另外還點了一條燒魚 (350銖),份量比預期中巨大多了,但味道很讚,加上綠色辣醬尤其過癮,兩口子都吃到啜手指;還有一份雞肉炒飯,加上飲用水,埋單也不過800多銖,太抵!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B118.jpg

       

      吃飽了兩隻還是不願去睡,誓要到 Kid's World 再玩多一會;好吧,讓他們稍為消化一下,再回房午睡,睡到開始太陽西斜再去游泳吧~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B122.jpg

       

      兩兄妹午睡之時,就是兩口子最珍貴的自由時間;想過下樓做 Spa/出街做 massage,不過老公想去健身,那我就留房看著兩隻,乘機打文吧,一直到5時多才叫醒兩隻一起再去玩水~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B128.jpg

       

      這次媽媽也參與其中,所以收起大機,改用 iPhone 拍照了。相比上午,明顯下午沒那麼曬,也吸引了更多人來玩。兩兄妹先努力跳多幾回彈床/充氣彈床,就一起再去玩水/玩滑水梯,媽媽也跟著試了一次,速度還好!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B126.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B127.jpg

       

      雖然沒有上午那麼曬,但下午的水溫卻更加高,至少有34-35度,泡在水裡真的很舒服、很舒服。泳池還有小酒吧,惠顧飲品還有小積木可以玩,果然是非常照顧家庭客~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B129.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B125.jpg

       

      我們一直玩到6時多,又趁潮退出去沙灘玩了!下午時分的沙灘也熱鬧多了,甚至有商人帶了小馬來,讓孩子收費騎上去合照,不過Matthew太重/Chloe太驚青,我們沒幫襯了~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B130.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B138.jpg

       

      穿著泳衣的我們,出去玩了一會沖浪,但這水始終不算太乾淨,所以去到及膝位置就停了。根據之前去 下白泥 的經驗,泥灘上的行跡代表著小生命,我們跟著仔細找,果然有所發現!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B131.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B133.jpg

       

      整個淺灘特別在滿佈青苔的石頭之間,原來有極多寄居蟹仔,牠們有的細小如豆,也有一些選住豪華大居、不過因此行動沒那麼便捷,十分有趣!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B134.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B141.jpg

       

      入夜後氣溫明顯下降,我們還是回泳池繼續泡暖水好了!4月華欣的日落大概是6:30pm,日落後不久泳池也慢慢要關閉,我們才慢慢回房又沖洗,之後再出去晚餐~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B140.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B101.jpg

       

      抵達華欣首晚已給最靠近酒店的 Bangkway Beer Garden 的悠揚樂聲所吸引,這天下午看溝楚了詳情,知道小孩子也適合去聽去吃去玩,晚上就去了湊熱鬧~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B98.jpg

       

      又忘了帶大機出來,還好可以借爸爸的相機拍照。晚上的 Beer Garden 是這樣的,現場氣氛很好,而場內除了主角啤酒檔,也有不少小吃檔,基本上晚餐都在這裡解決了~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B149.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B148.jpg

       

      兩兄妹最愛這燒烤檔,因有大量他們愛吃的腸仔/肉丸等,全部以超實惠價錢發售,而且全是即點即燒,抵食度爆燈!

       

      FullSizeRender%2B150.jpg

       

      FullSizeRender%2B144.jpg

       

      其他的即炒粉麵,以及芒果糯米飯也以超值價發售,吃在泰國真的太太太爽了~~~

       

      FullSizeRender%2B146.jpg

      從小到大,觀塘給我的印象都是平民美食天堂,但因為位於工業區,較為高級的餐廳並不常見。不過近年觀塘發展得很快,不少商廈住宅落成,連帶餐飲業也旺盛起來。

      _DSF7993.jpg

      在APM附近,成業街10號的電訊一代廣場,是較為新的商廈,開業之初邀來不少食肆,為附近工業區帶來新選擇,BriKetenia就是其中一間。

      _DSF7998.jpg

      BriKetenia總店在法國西南部度假勝地Guéthary,08年轉型高級餐廳,一年後就成為了米芝蓮一星。據說法國總廚David曾在香港餐廳工作,所以跟香港結下不解之緣,也造就BriKetenia香港分店在兩年前出世。

      _DSF7990.jpg

      兩年以來,餐廳除了儲了一些觀塘甚至將軍澳區的熟客,還設計了不少受歡迎菜式。為了迎來兩週年,BriKetenia把其中幾款招牌菜式,放進期間限定的tasting menu,價錢更比平常的tasting menu便宜了約10%,以實際行動來回饋觀塘街坊。

      _DSF8001.jpg

      這天受公關邀請,和幾位朋友來到BriKetenia,試試幾款不同的招牌菜。從麵包到甜品,這一晚的確令人滿意。

      _DSF8028.jpg

      頭盤是西班牙紅蝦配煙燻三文魚,煙三文魚墊底,上面配上紅蝦粒、忌廉、脆片等材料,雖不是沙律但配搭頗清新,最適合喜歡吃海鮮的朋友。

      _DSF8033.jpg

      接下來是63度溫泉蛋配法國36個月風乾火腿,36個月的火腿肉味濃郁,沾上溫泉變得更香更滑。除此之外,蛋醬混著炒雜菇和松露醬吃也很不錯,各種不同配也很出色,怪不得是餐廳多年的招牌菜。

      _DSF8042.jpg

      餐廳另一得意之作是鵝肝焦糖燉蛋,以法國鵝肝作材料,加入忌廉和白蘭地再以八十五度燉煮成鵝肝醬,口感極其幼滑,上桌前再添上焦糖面,鹹甜交織,卻又濃郁好吃。據說這道菜只在香港分店提供,香港人,真有口福。

      _DSF8045.jpg

      個人全晚最喜歡的,要算法國干邑龍蝦湯。侍應為我們分開奉來碟和壼,碟上是龍蝦肉和忌廉泡沫,壼裡則是滿滿的龍蝦湯。慢慢地把龍蝦湯倒進碟中,過程中散發著龍蝦湯和干邑的香氣。滿滿的一壼湯足夠注滿湯碟兩次,毫不吝嗇讓人喝得非常滿足。

      _DSF8057.jpg

      主菜則是西班牙熟成金牛二食,兩款不同部份,不同煮法,慢煮牛面頰、香煎肉眼兩者都處理得很好,當中個人較喜愛香煎肉眼,嫣紅嬌嫩,且牛味濃郁,水準很不錯。

      _DSF8088.jpg

      這裡的甜點也比預期的好,都是大家耳熟能詳的法式甜品。第一款草莓砵酒醬釀澳洲啤梨配香梨雪葩,砵酒滲進啤梨之中,但啤梨卻仍很爽口,配上香梨口味雪葩,相輔相成,好吃。

      _DSF8107.jpg

      另一驚喜甜品是朱古力撻配士多啤梨雪糕,朱古力撻餅皮香脆,朱古力也香濃幼滑,朱古力愛好者應該一定滿意。

      _DSF8110.jpg

      最後餐廳再送上小巧精緻的petit fours,配一杯咖啡或濃茶,滿意滿足。

      _DSF7988.jpg

      當法國五月遇上BriKetenia的anniversary tasting menu,正是各位觀塘區的朋友之福,以比平常更便宜的價錢,品嚐到BriKetenia的幾款招牌菜式,這個四五月,正是味遊法國的好時機。

    • Hey Thao. This plan is quite good.   There are many special walls that were painted in Soho district in Central.  It is good to take photos there. Will you plan to go to the bar for drinks on Day 4 at night? I suggest a Bar call "Bar pacific". The price of food and drink is relatively reasonable in HK. And there provide darts. The atmosphere was so good there. It has many branches in HK like in Shatin, TaiPo, Hung Hom, etc. I suggest you can go to Hung Hom Bar Pacific that night cause it is near to Tsim Sha Tsui. Lastly, i would recommend you to eat "DimSum" which is a traditional food in Hong Kong. And you can find a lot of DimSum restaurants in Tsim Sha Tsui too. One of restaurant I would recommend is called "Social Place". I hope you enjoy your trip to Hong Kong.
    • Just discovered Open Rice has nominated Social Place for Best Restaurant award 2017 right before the deadline and casted my vote! Even though it’s over, and I can’t tell my friends to vote for them now, I still have to tell everyone about their amazing food. First off, I have to recommend their FANCY dim sum! The cute truffle mushroom bun that looks just like real mushrooms with truffle and mushroom filling, tasted awesome. The turnip cake was crisp outside, soft inside. The creative rose bun, which was shaped like a rose actually has rose fragrance! The tofu with egg just melted in my mouth, and the “fun pei” is a must try. Mmmm~ Other dishes that you cannot miss are: the black vinegar chicken, the roasted baby pigeon and the drunken chicken. They also have happy hour serving beer and wine at half priced which is a huge plus. I am definitely gonna be a regular. Highly support this awesome restaurant  
    • Hi Shirousa Thank you very much for your advice 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
    • Hi Thao, welcome to this forum and to Hong Kong! Your itinerary is actually quite well planned and just a bit suggestion/advice to you are that TVB City is not opened to public, so you may not be able to get in without a permit; another thing is on Day 4, in case you don't have much spots to visit in Wan Chai,  you may consider visit Nan Lian Garden near Diamond Hill MTR station (http://www.nanliangarden.org/home.php?eng) after your visit to Kowloon Walled City and before Wan Chai. Just shut if you have more questions
