Via Tokyo (Causeway Bay)

I tried their icecream ages ago but it seemed hard writing this up because I am not an expert on Japanese food.

00VLKT5DFC8CD7D9B2B526m.jpg

One of the Japanese owners was really nice and shockingly spoke really good English because all the Japanese people I have met, I had trouble understanding what they said in English.

While I was there, they were making dumplings for the desserts.

00VLKR9206873FD3DA335Am.jpg

Although there were lots to choose from, my favourite was actually the plain one with crispy rice only available to students.

00VLKU65A309C5475AA01Cm.jpg

I love that crispy rice which tastes like the cereal honey puffs.

00VLKSA87CB5531366C308m.jpg

Okome shiratama Azuki mix soft cream:

00VLKVE2F4B5888813F17Am.jpg

The dessert was nice and colourful but I found it a bit heavy and I don't like red beans.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Plain icecream with crispy rice:

00VLKQ753EABEC1F88F2DFm.jpg

This was my favourite, plain and simple soft serve with crispy rice.

I wish they served this on the regular menu.

Green Orange (Sheung Wan)

I was in the area during lunchtime so decided to try their lunch.

00VLJZ3B49C5181ACABC29m.jpg

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Soup and bread:

00VLK0D07C295BF7C5EF3Bm.jpg

The soup was quite creamy.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Tandoori fish, cucumber salad and roast potatoes:

00VLK1760D14EF5B75C044m.jpg

00VLK2B869FA5513675803m.jpg

The fish was really nice, heavily spiced with Indian herbs paired with shaved cucumber and quite a lot of it too.

Usually, cucumber used as a decorative item but it was nice there was quite a bit because it had a refreshing taste that balanced the spiciness of the fish.

The roast potatoes were divine because they were fluffy in the middle with a lovely roasted skin.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Chocolate brownie and icecream:

00VLK32960F92FD2A4CD7Cm.jpg

The chocolate brownie was dense and rich.

It's a Tuck Shop (Wan Chai)

I havent been here for a while because the guy is not there anymore and the food quality seems to have gone down.

On my previous visit, the burger bun was dehydrated.

It was the woman this time so I only got the hotdog.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Mini hotdog:

00VLJAB1699192D2B7FC03m.jpg

Surprisingly, the hotdog was ok, the bun was soft.

The frankfurter, tomato ketchup and mustard tasted great together giving a tangy taste.

ViLLAGE KEBAB (Sai Kung)

Went to Sai Kung for food and dined here because no one was dining here.

You could tell that people were afraid to try the food from their reactions but after I sat down the Hong Kongers were not afraid to try because the restaurant was not empty.

Another thing that I observed is that HKers seem to be afraid of empty restaurants so when they choose their seats, they will sit near another table of diners.

In the UK, people like to spread themselves out.

I find that particularly annoying when I want peace and quiet and people have to sit nearby and yak with loud voices.

Since my last visit there are more choices on the menu.

00VLJ8C8B874CDFB801EBBm.jpg

00VLJ9B7C9BD13BD1CDEEBm.jpg

I want to try their pasta because it is probably cooked in an Indian way with spices but it was a public holiday that day, so they don't serve it.

In the end I had the Quesadilla.

There is a choice chicken or falafel but I wanted both so I had a mix of the two.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Quesadilla with falafel and chicken:

00VLJ4B58432240EFF0B61m.jpg

00VLJ5C013EA3990DC0032m.jpg

There was a sauce missing according to the photo, so I asked the guy and he came back with the green sauce.

00VLJ7D68E19D698CEF5EDm.jpg

I thought it was guacamole but it was Indian mint sauce.

00VLJ6A1ACA41B0B5BE206m.jpg

The salsa sauce was amazing, it was diced tomatoes and onions in vinaigrette with super fragrant cumin.

The Quesadilla was just divine because the it was crispy filled with cheese, falafel and roasted chicken, and the cheese was gooey and soft.

Chocolat-ier (Causeway Bay)

I have not been to Chocolat-ier for ages but recently I had this cute confectionary Cornetto and Chocolat-ier had it too so decided to try theirs.

00VLFK69C47842561620ADm.jpg

I got these last year and forgot to review them until I read the recent reviews on Chocolat-ier which jogged my memory.

00VLFL14A94BE7D0667CA8m.jpg

00VLFJAF7D8CD4EDE8B963m.jpg

As well as mini confectionary icecream cones, they also had chocolate burgers and pizzas.

00VLFH4C7DD8B9DCBC3177m.jpg

00VLFG479A1B5A7F7D2BEDm.jpg

00VLFI990C80088FDA0FF4m.jpg

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Chocolate burger:

00VLFMDEDB2437E72A9F84m.jpg

00VLFNF770E4D2B7E61E57m.jpg

Basically it was a biscuit sandwiched in between two halves of chocolate.

It was quite nice just like having a chocolate biscuit with a bigger proportion of chocolate.

Spaingo (Mong Kok)

This shop was opened last year but I couldn't find it listed on Openrice so I didn't bother listing it because quite a few I have tried to list have been rejected even though I have filled in the Name, telephone and address.

Last week it also happened, so I don't know why I bother!

Anyway, this shop is bright yellow and hard to miss.

00VLFE36B36677E16F0A7Bm.jpg

They specialize in croquettes made with Iberian pigs 炸黑毛豬丸!!

There are eight sauces to choose from for the croquettes.

00VLFF01F16AE112C4997Fm.jpg

00VLFD177612B801474BDCm.jpg

I ended up getting the potato wedges with the gravy.

It was delicious rich gravy and the wedges were nice and starchy.

Next time I will try the croquettes (炸黑毛豬丸).

Hard to appreciate food in Mong Kok because there are too many people and smokers about and it is difficult to try and take photos.

This was the last stop in Macau before going back to Hong Kong.

Most of the items at Pacific Coffee were the same as the ones in Hong Kong.

Stopped by for a drink and tried the Lamington.

The Lamington in Macau was about 60% cream and 40% cake whereas the Hong Kong version is 30% cream and 70% cake.

I got meal vouchers to dine at Quick Rich in Macau.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F4.bp.blogspot.com

The name and logo is designed just like a CASINO.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F3.bp.blogspot.com

Each day, they have six different meals

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F3.bp.blogspot.com

Each meal has a product shot for reference:

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F3.bp.blogspot.com

The meal collection system was quite good, you just go to that relevant counter, give your voucher and get the meal.

The lady is impatiently waiting for Meal 3.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F2.bp.blogspot.com

Here was counter 6 for the vegetarian dish.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F3.bp.blogspot.com

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Mixed vegetables in red beancurd sauce:

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F2.bp.blogspot.com

This was a bit disappointing because there were too much mushrooms, but the taste was quite good.

The vegetarian meat and seaweed soup was great but there was some sand in it.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Stewed lotus root and duck

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F4.bp.blogspot.com

The sauce and duck was nice but the duck was a bit chewy.

Since I was in Macau, I decided to go to Macallan's Scottish bar because of the decor.

The decor was really nice with a real fireplace.

Originally I was sitting near the bar, but the cigar smoke got too strong, so I sat elsewhere.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F2.bp.blogspot.com

When you sit down, they give you some peanuts and almonds.
(I was shocked they were free)

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F3.bp.blogspot.com
As I do not drink alcohol, I got mock-tails.
The mocktails were pretty cheap too around MOP5X.
The pussyfoot was nice
proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F4.bp.blogspot.com
The Virgin mary was way too spicy to drink.
proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F1.bp.blogspot.com
The candle that they had was really cool, it was not a burning flame.

A video of the non burning candle.


The bill was quite cheap, it was about MOP12X for two drinks.

I have always wanted to dine at Morton's of Chicago but the one in Hong Kong is inconvenient and there are other temptations around the area.

Decided to dine at Morton's so that I could also visit The Venetian.

If it was not this restaurant, I would not set foot in The Venetian again!!!

The mall was extremely annoying and big, every place looked the same.

There was a shortcut via the Casino but they kept checking me for ID to prove that I was over 21.

(I was also checked at other Casinos as well :( )

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F3.bp.blogspot.com

They had digital kiosks with floor-plans but most of them were not working.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F1.bp.blogspot.com

(Compared to the City of Dreams, every digital kiosk worked perfectly and the place was so much more comfortable and modern).

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F4.bp.blogspot.com

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F2.bp.blogspot.com

After frantically walking in that maze for an hour, I finally found it!

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2Fstatic2.orstatic.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2Fstatic1.orstatic.

Finally sat down!!

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Onion bread:

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2Fstatic4.orstatic.

The onion bread was served and it was lovely and warm.

It was soft with a nice bread texture and it was slightly sweet.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Maine Lobster Cocktail:

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2Fstatic3.orstatic.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2Fstatic1.orstatic.

There were not many pieces of lobster but it tasted fresh and sweet which was the main thing and the meat was springy.

It tasted great on its own that I did not need to use the sauces.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Sauteed Spinach & Button Mushrooms:

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2Fstatic2.orstatic.

I loved the spinach, it was not overcooked nor undercooked with a crisp crunch flavoured by the rich mushroom juices.

The mushrooms were lovely and earthy.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Jumbo Lump Crab Cake:

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2Fstatic4.orstatic.

The crab cake was divine, it was 100% crab meat that was sweet with a hint of natrual saltiness.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

For desserts there were so many options that they had a sample tray to show people.

On the tray, there were:

-Fresh Raspberries or mixed berries

-Key Lime Pie

-Carrot Cake

-Double Chocolate Mousse

-Creme Brulee

-Cheesecake

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2Fstatic3.orstatic.

The first dessert menu they gave me had no prices, so I asked for one with prices.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2Fstatic3.orstatic.

In the end I chose the souffle

Grand marnier souffle:

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2Fstatic1.orstatic.

The souffle came with as bowl of sauce about the size of the souffle.

I did not use the sauce because it was really sweet and the souffle was already sweet.

The souffle was hot and foamy with a strong orange peel taste.

To be honest, I was attracted by this pearlescent ball.00VK4U3340439B6128B5F8l.jpg
I found out that this room was used for Japanese tea ceremonies so I booked the tea ceremony to experience this lovely tea room.

When I arrived, I was given a sheet of instructions about the tea ceremony and how it is conducted.
Macau_200114-220114+%2528317%2529.jpg


















It does not matter if you don't read it because the Japanese lady will instruct you again inside.




00VK4V98E6FD5EA7FC5928l.jpg
After you have read the instructions, you are given some Japanese wagashi before going in the room because the tea is going to be bitter.

00VK4QF5BB4EF877B87F77l.jpg
I found the wagashi a bit sweet, one of them had red bean puree and the other tasted like compacted sugar powder.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Entering the tea ceremony room:

00VK4T56F01898B0820C40l.jpg
00VK4SC8F4197CFA099BD2l.jpg
Before you enter, you have to wash your hands using the Japanese bamboo ladle.

00VK4P6179B7AD6A3009B8l.jpg
When you get inside, there are some Japanese teaware.
00VK4RD27FADB165C24F97l.jpg
When you are inside comfortably (I actually found it uncomfortable because I can't cross my legs or kneel properly).
proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F3.bp.blogspot.com

To see a video, scroll down to the bottom.

The Japanese lady starts the tea ceremony and makes you a cup of tea which you drink.
00VK4OEB9BAF2DE69DCA32l.jpg
She will then pass the bowl to you which you turn clockwise and then drink it.
When you drink it, she will instruct you to make some noises when you drink.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F1.bp.blogspot.com

After you have finished, you wipe the bowl with your right thumb and then use the tissue provided to clean it.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F3.bp.blogspot.com


proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F2.bp.blogspot.com

Lastly, you turn the bowl over to appreciate it.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F3.bp.blogspot.com

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Japanese tea:
I found the Japanese tea quite nice, it was much nicer than the bitter ones because it did not have any grassy taste.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Then it was my turn to make some Japanese tea. The green tea powder has already been placed into the bowl, so all you have to do is get some water from the container and pour it in the kettle and get the water and pour it in the bowl.
proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F4.bp.blogspot.com
After I did that, I had to mix it with their special Japanese tea brush.
proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F4.bp.blogspot.com

Japanese tea (MADE BY ME):

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F2.bp.blogspot.com

I did not mix it too well and put too much water because it tasted quite bland.
The temperature of my tea was much hotter so I preferred the one she made.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

When the ceremony is finished, you sit outside and have a last cup of tea.
proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F2.bp.blogspot.com
You can also take more photographs outside the room as well.
proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F3.bp.blogspot.com
The tea ceremony costs MOP230 plus 10% service charge and lasts for approximately 40 minutes.
Available from 1500-1800 (Tuesday to Sunday)
Advance booking is required.

Spicy Andong (Causeway Bay)

Thanks to Gary for bringing me along to this tasting.

This is a new branch of Spicy Andong because they have another branch in Mong Kok where the interior is really cool. They have padlocks hung on the walls and cute message cards attached.

At the Causeway bay branch, they also have these message cards and colourful interior.

00V084CFBC585036568847m.jpg

Anyway here was what we had:

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Basically for Spicy Andong chicken there is one with oyster and one without.

Spicy Andong Chicken:

Tasted quite similar to the one below but the taste was less fancy without the oysters but the spiciness was still there.

Spicy Andong chicken with oyster:

00V07WAD31A58CBE56BE18m.jpg

To be honest I prefer the one with oyster because there are more flavours in the dish and the oysters were plump and huge!

To begin with the oysters were quite spicy, but after a while they get even spicier after absorbing the sauce.

Luckily they offer a non spicy version.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Collagen salad

00V07Y3115550CB1E061F1m.jpg

This salad is called a collagen salad because it has slices of pork trotters which are rich in collagen.

I liked the cool crunchy lettuce leaves tossed in tangy sesame sauce which is perfect for soothing the palatte after some spicy food.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Curry Toppokki with cheese

00V07V39D86ECDB5C3B184m.jpg

The curry toppokki was really cool because the usual sauce is spicy and not many places serve it in curry sauce.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Steamed pork with spicy garlic sauce

00V080C02F875CBFE1182Fm.jpg

The sauce looked innocently refreshing but it was devilishly hot!!!!!!

So beware!

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Grilled beef on lettuce

00V08134522C743D0962DEm.jpg

Nice chunks of beef paired with spicy kimchi.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Cheese and spicy minced pork pizza

00V07X4053F7ABE0942B6Cm.jpg

The English menu does not indicate how spicy it was but this was another super spicy one!!

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Clams steamed in jinro

00V07U387A39396BDEC56Dm.jpg

I loved the golden metal teapot because you can pour soup out from the spout without the contents coming out.

It would be good if the alcohol taste was stronger.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Pan grilled eel

00V0826CD3734D9E3292D7m.jpg

A lovely plain grilled eel which lets you taste it in its most natural form.

The suggested way of eating it is putting the eel on the lettuces leaves with the sauce provided.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Pan grilled ribs

00V07ZFC2CBF74CEC8CA95m.jpg

Nicely pan grilled ribs which were thinly sliced.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

To To Bibimbap with onions and egg

00V0834949C4D25B7A7BB5m.jpg

This was my favourite because most bibimbaps come with kimchi and meat, but this was plain rice, egg, onion and seaweed.

After mixing it, the rice and onions were really fragrant. There is an extra side of finely chopped onions which had strong sesame oil in it which I added as well and it tasted so much more nicer.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Brown rice milk

00V07T98B516744C108E62m.jpg

The rice milk was lovely and not too sweet with a delicious roasted rice taste.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

On each table, there was a pair of scissors for the noodles which came in handy for cutting other pieces of food too.

The Salted Pig (Central)

Thanks to Try it for holding this dinner.

It is a system that matches tryers to buyers, as well as restaurants they also feature snacks and drinks to try.

00VJ9557444EEE08B561C4m.jpg

Since my last visit, there is a new British Chef Anthony Fletcher on board and the dishes tastes so much better.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

The salted pig board:

00VJ93DF033C949879A08Fm.jpg

As you can see the scotch egg was decent and better than my previous one.

I did not even get a whole one last time, it was just half an egg covered in coating and the egg yolk was a bit hard.

The bacon was smoking, yet it was nice and crispy.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Pancetta scallops on peas and broad bean hash with cider dressing:

00VJ94C491B402E01AEAB8m.jpg

This was my favourite especially the peas in creamy cider dressing.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Grilled romaine lettuce:

00VJ9155CC07704FCE1B48m.jpg

The grilled romaine lettuce was uniquely done, it was a whole lettuce cut in half and grilled flavoured by the anchovies on top.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Crispy fried chicken:

00VJ926FA85D33855D6E06m.jpg

When it came, you could already smell that Southern coating on the fried chicken.

Luckily I got the chicken thigh which was tender and the coating was tasty and crispy with a hint of spicyness.

Hana-Musubi (Admiralty)

00VJ558A6B4DEEE7DD907Cm.jpg

Had a coupon to redeem a musubi set which includes two musubis and a side dish.

00VJ56F73227DB1D8FA937m.jpg

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Beef musubi:

The beef musubi was very satisfying because the beef was nice and meaty giving the rice plenty of flavour.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Sakura shrimp musubi:

The taste of this was lighter than the beef but it was nice because there were lots of delicate dried shrimps in it.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Beef:

This had to be heated up and the potatoes beneath it absorbed the beef sauce so it had a rich beef taste.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Dumpling Pro (Wan Chai)

On my last visit, I only tried the apple fritters (but see ping gwoh) because I had a tasting afterwards.

The menu had quite a lot of nice items so went back for it.

00VJ4K9A439489736A5E8Fm.jpg

00VJ4L40C074003D81A329m.jpg

It seems that their food is quite authentic because there are a lot of mainlanders with a strong Northern accent.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Tomato and egg noodles:

00VJ4ME4D13AACE8596770m.jpg

The tomato and egg noodles were rather disappointing because the noodles were too soft and tasteless and the tomatoes did not have any taste at all.

They were not even sweet or sour and all you could taste was the fried egg with a panfried taste.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Stir fried chicken with leek and cumin:

00VJ4NA8E3EAC19E7C4EC5m.jpg

This was delicious, sweet leeks and tender chicken pieces spiced with fragrant cumin.

It was quite salty so I had to have it with rice.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Apple fritters:

When you order them, the waitress goes out to buy the apples, so if you prefer green or red apples you can tell them when you order before they go out to buy them.

I felt sorry for the waitresses who were just doing their jobs chasing up the desserts because they got shouted at by the chefs.

The whole restaurant was waiting for dessert, so the Chefs did the apples and bananas together.

00VJ4OBCAFC29F6D59D6B8m.jpg

That night, the Chefs were too busy cooking, so after the apples and bananas were fried, the waitresses had to do the final part and dunk the pieces of apple in syrup and then into iced water.

00VJ4P8C5993C0DC6CABFCm.jpg

00VJ4J611BEC7ADAAF1866m.jpg

Although it was not solely done by the chef, the apples were really nice because they were piping hot and tart complemented by the caramelized sweet batter coating.

I was quite lucky and found a piece of banana in it too so I got the best of both worlds.

Most of the diners who were waiting quite a while for the desserts were given soy milk because it took so long.

Bubbles Sushi (Wan Chai)

Bubbles sushi offers all you can eat and there is no time limit which is why the price per person is slightly higher.

The staff in general are quite nice and patient except for one depending on her mood.

Quite a lot of people celebrate their birthdays here because they will play the Happy birthday song and serve a sushi birthday cake and take a photo for you which is ready to take home that night after the meal.

That night I went, there were at least four tables having birthdays there.

00VJ0XA503C04A6B28C702m.jpg

The range of sushi is impressive and they even have sushi with truffle and grilled flounder fish edges with salt.

For dessert, the range was a bit weird especially the fried mozarella sticks and sweetcorn puffs.

For the fried items, the deep fried octopus mouths were my favourite.

In the meat section they have grilled lamb, stir fried bittermelon with pork.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Grilled items:

00VJ1435697578748C8DEAm.jpg

This was grilled chicken liver and sweet potatoes.

The chicken liver was a bit raw and tasted a bit bitter and the sweet potatoes were cute but too sweet.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Sashimi:

00VJ15A5D23D1F65A5A579m.jpg

A nice variety of sashimi.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Truffle sushi:

00VJ1614F31FCA624437B4m.jpg

This was my favourite because the scallop sushi was topped with truffle and each one is shaped into a tiny ball of rice.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Baked crab shell:

00VJ11A7086FDD36C53435m.jpg

Beneath the grilled cheese, it was creamy crab and vegetables.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Baked oysters:

00VJ131614B290B03BEBA9m.jpg

I did not like it because I don't like Japanese mayonnaise.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Stir fried beef with bittermelon:

00VJ175776A95231427724m.jpg

A Okinawan dish but the pork was too fatty.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Fried items:

00VJ10DF9348DFB8633881m.jpg

My favourite fried octopus mouths.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Japanese congee:

00VJ120A532C587935AE1Fm.jpg

The congee was quite interesting because the texture was different as it was cooked with Japanese rice.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Ice cream mochi:

00VJ18BCE5065D5B149E7Am.jpg

Individually wrapped.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Cream puffs and strawberry swiss rolls:

00VJ0Y3F95FE07A7DEB392m.jpg

I preferred the rolls without the sauce because they were sweet enough.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Fried mozzarella sticks:

00VJ0Z22753E5662CB6379m.jpg

These were weird!! They were savoury Mozzarella sticks drizzled with that strawberry sauce again and dusted with powdered sugar!

Fung Shing Restaurant (Prince Edward)

Here I was thinking it was another boring Chinese meal again with the same usual items, eg an appetizer, some sort of chicken, steamed fish, fried rice and noodles but it was not and turned out to be the best meal I have tried.

Unfortunately my camera didn’t have any batteries which was a waste!

Arrived at the restaurant and it was brightly lit with crystal chandeliers and glistening décor, although it was brightly lit there were tell tale signs that this restaurant has been here for years with décor to disguise it.

After settling down, it was the usual annoyance because I go into restaurants expecting their bowls and cups to be clean and not have to clean it myself.

The items on the set meal seemed interesting, it was not the usual fare because I did not know that it was Shunde style food that time.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Menu:

Crispy roast piglet

Panfried prawn potstickers

Minced pigeon with lettuce

Silkie chicken with sharks fin

Shunde fish rolls

Stir fried vegetables

Stir fried milk

Fried chicken

Fung Shing fried rice

Fried flour dumplings

Baked sago with lotus paste

Fresh fruits

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Crispy roast piglet:

Normally I take a bite and thats it but the piglet here was divine, it was fatless~

I ended up having about four pieces.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Panfried prawn potstickers:

In Chinese they were called Woh teep but when they came, it was a whole prawn on toast.

The great thing was that the fried bread had no oily taste and I added some chili sauce to it which enhanced it even more.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Silkie chicken with sharks fin:

The soup was good too!

The chicken was so soft and full of flavour from the soup that it did not need soy sauce and the black chicken skin tasted sticky and elastic which was not at all fat.

The chicken joints were deliciously soft like collagen jelly because the soup had been boiled for so long that they became so soft.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Shunde fish rolls:

Nothing exciting about the fish, it was just fish rolled up with mushrooms in the middle.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Stir fried vegetables:

Nothing exciting, it was just stir fried vegetables with mushrooms.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Stir fried milk:

I was expecting a sweet taste but it was NORMAL for once and delicious.

The appearance was like stir fried egg white and it tasted like savoury smooth milk curds.

The stir fried milk was surrounded by these crispy looking rolls called "chicken rolls", after I took a bite, I imediately spat it out because it was fried fat and lard with oil oozing out.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Fried chicken:

This was a chicken fried with its skin attached.

The chicken was coming off with hot smoke, yet the chicken was tender with a nice smoky salt taste.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Fung Shing fried rice:

The fried rice which I never eat was delicious, each grain of rice was distinct and it did not have that nasty wok taste, it also had diced tomatoes in it as well.

I also tried their plain boiled rice and that was good too.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Fried flour dumplings:

In chinese it was Jah fun gwoh.

I was expecting it to be those weird sticky chiuchow style ones filled with peanuts and celery but it was crunchy and soft filled with prawns.

It came with soup to dip but I did not bother with the soup.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Baked sago with lotus paste:

I was glad it was a dessert that I could eat because the usual ones such as sweet soups and puddings are two sweet and I hate sweet soups.

The sago was a lovely custard egg yolk colour that was piping hot and not too sweet.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Fresh fruits:

These were sliced oranges.

It was good that they made an effort to slice them unlike some other places where they give you a plate of WHOLE ORANGES!!

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

To summarize, the banquet set was FUSS FREE, drinks were included and there is no extra 10% on top because the price already includes all that.

00VGQO36EC68898322FC1Em.jpg

00VGQP5F3610450A67046Am.jpg

Satay King is renowned for its white curry and pork chop but this time they wanted to let us try other dishes as well.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Fish roe potato salad

00VGQE016B2EBCD037AC8Fm.jpg

I loved this potato salad because the mayonnaise was normal and not sweet like other Chinese places.

It is healthly with half a runny egg and for the leaves they have used locally sourcedhydrophonic leaves.

Hydroponic means they were grown in water without soil.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Nyonya beef Pizza

00VGQG0A73CF94661C21B8m.jpg

I was a bit hesistant with the Nyonya beef because I was expecting it to be super spicy, but the chilis they used tasted like Jalapeno peppers which are not that spicy with a refreshing tone.

The Nyonya beef pizza was definitely good and reminds me of mexican beef and sour cream pizza.

The pizza base was quite unique because it was similar to Indian roti.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Spicy cheese potato croquette - New

00VGQF79652E1EBBB200CAm.jpg

Basically these potato cheese croquettes are an adaptation of the usual potato cheese croquettes stuffed with fillings.

The one on the left was stuff with sesame and seaweed, while the other one was stuff with the same type chili use in the Nyonya pizza.

Out of the two flavours, I lked the seaweed one because the tastes matched the cheese and potato better.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Vietnamese shrimp cakes

00VGQH95085E5EE560F75Dm.jpg

The shrimp cakes were soft and meaty but the prawn taste could have been stronger.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Sausage and shrimp with rice vermicelli in tom yum kung soup

00VGQIA1AE97DC596BFAC5m.jpg

I did not really try this because the broth was too spicy but the vietnamese sausages were good.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Pork chop and rice baked with cheese and tomato sauce

00VGQJ99F68CE13F1AC805m.jpg

The rice dish was similar to the ones you get at Cha chaan tengs but the pork chop was thickly sliced and the tomato sauce was rich and tangy.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Satay Angus beef ramen

00VGQLBF001064B433AB4Em.jpg

The ramen was surprisingly good because the sauce was thick.

I loved the way each strand had lots of thick and sweet satay hung to it with lots of crushed peanuts complemented by the lovely green spring onions and onions.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Kimchi and beef Fried Rice - New

00VGQK92FCE89D889FBF4Cm.jpg

Did not try this because Kimchi is really spicy.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

The desserts were quite impressive because they used to just serve mango, glutinous rice and durian, but these desserts cater for Western palates as well.

Platinum cheesecake

00VGQM9EBCCC64139D5324m.jpg

Nice cheesecake that was not too heavy or sweet.

Apple tart with icecream

00VGQNE03E4DBD7C42D88Dm.jpg

The apple tart was my favourite because I loved the caramelized apples on a flakey base complimented by icecream.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Thanks to Soda Rewards and Satay King for the coupons because I really miss their food and this time I will try other dishes other than White curry!!!

新一派 味道 (Tseung Kwan O)

Honestly, I had no expectations of this place but it turned out far worse.

This place claims that their BBQ roast pork is good.

Anyway when I ordered, the waitress was a bit weird, after ordering one dish, she was rushing me to order a second dish as if I was not ordering enough.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Menu:

00VGQ85B70B71F144FEBA5m.jpg

00VGQ73950D14BC1F50E9Em.jpg

00VGQ689C13AAA2BFC56D9m.jpg

00VGQ4239ADC85BF679CD2m.jpg

Most sets cost around $52-$55 which includes rice, vegetables, soup and a main dish.

The price is quite debatable because if you are getting so many items then $5x is a good deal but if the items in the meal are inexpensive then paying $5X is rather a waste!

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Photos of the restaurant:

00VGQ9EDF1548151AEC303m.jpg

00VGQ5B9607D3FB7A27F81m.jpg

The restaurant is reasonably comfortable hidden at the corner of some mall.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Roast pork with black pepper and honey:

00VGQDA832AD0C1DCD5A44m.jpg

The roast pork was just sweet, the black pepper was tasteless and having Chinese roast pork always depends on luck.

This time all the pieces were fatty. Great! NOT!

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Red beancurd pork knuckles with beancurd skin:

00VGQB5A8B8F0B0151B8DFm.jpg

The pork knuckles were on a bed of beancurd skin which soaked the beancurd sauce.

However the sauce was a bit gritty, it seemed like there were wood shavings in it.

As for the pork knuckles, they were too soft and had some prickly stubble that was not shaved properly.

00VGQA51C290D4D7253321m.jpg

Chinese radish:

00VGQC64CA0D6F05C8B5B7m.jpg

The Chinese radish was good but the broth ruined it because it had a rancid pork smell.

潮城 takeout's

潮城燒臘粥店 (Wan Chai)

For Chinese cha chaan teng dishes, I tend not to spend too much on it because it is not really my cup of tea.

00VGQ297A86DBBCFCB6D84m.jpg

At 潮城 they have lunches for $40 which I have never considered but this time I noticed the takeaway was only $33 including a drink.

In general, I get takeaways if the food is cheaper because I would feel so gutted if the food wasn't nice and you have to sit in that noisy grubby environment.

00VGQ36E32D1EA88087F2Am.jpg

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Stir fried instant noodles with seafood:

00VGQ1D45968D7CDA0AA61m.jpg

When I opened the box, the noodles looked a soft because the strands were big.

The taste was surprisingly better than I had imagined, it was not oily or salty compared to other places.

There were lots of julienne vegetables and the squid tasted decent, it was springy and fresh unlike the frozen ones that other places use.

Overall, if the noodles did not have that foamy soft texture, it would have been perfect because I liked the way it did not have that stir fried wok taste.

They tasted like a big batch of instant noodles tossed in sauce and lightly stir fried so that the noodles are quick to serve as the chefs would be rather busy if they had to cook each one when people order.

金發車仔麵

On my previous visit, the noodles were great so came back again.

The previous review was postive, but this one is negative because the taste is not consistent.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Instant noodles with ox tripe and Chinese radish:

00VGQ066223339617D52B0m.jpg

This time the broth was bland and watery and the aniseed was too strong.

The ox tripes were not as soft as before and it was not braised long enough because it was not as tasty as my previous visit.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Fish shaomai:

As I was still hungry I ordered some extra fish shaomai.

I really admired the way, they got a skewer from the steamer and walked over to my table with it dripping on to the floor so I had to either hold when she came over or have it plonked in my bowl of noodles.

Luckily I had finished with the noodles so it was ok to slap it on top of the noodles.

Unfortunately, the fish shaomai were cold and tasted weird.

Arome Bakery (Kwun Tong)

Arome bakery has launched the new Okinawa purple potato series.

Previously I tried the Okinawa purple potato roll which was a chocolate swiss rolls covered with sweet potato puree filled with cream.

(please see link below for that review)

This time I had some time to kill before a tasting so got the Okinawa purple potato tart.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Okinawa purple potato tart:

00VGPU29115A36EAB0C154m.jpg

00VGPWEC0BF0A33DD2E621m.jpg

The tart costs $20 which is $4 more than the roll.

00VGPV4E068B52C399A568m.jpg

It is held in a paper tray which is convenient and luckily ABR can provide you with plastic forks if you want to eat it right away.

00VGPX3317135A9B540249m.jpg

Inside the tart, there was chocolate cake and cream just like the roll.

Again, it was delicious and there was more sweet potato puree compared to the roll so if you like the sweet potato this would be a better choice but if you don't like the tart base then you should get the roll and its cheaper.

The chocolate cake and sweet potato tasted really good together because it was not too sweet and the sweet potato was velvety and had a natrual taste.

00VGPY48656A984993F9CEm.jpg

00VGPZ98DF62AC1EE64418m.jpg

The tart base is basically their usual tart base that they use for tarts which was buttery just like shortbread.

In conclusion, I prefer the roll because I don't like the tart base and it has a better ratio of chocolate roll and sweet potato.

M18 (Lok Fu)

Previously tried their cakes so decided to come back for the breakfast because it was incredibly cheap!!

00VGK4AA3E0CFFA1645AA8m.jpg

00VGK61D7A9EBC21E9B166m.jpg

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

all day breakfast:

00VGK5F5A81D6CE2D8E360m.jpg

For $36, there were mushrooms, fried eggs, bacon, sausages, tomato, toast and baked beans.

I was not expecting top quality British sausages for $36 but the sausages they served were far better than frankfurters that the Hongkies love to serve.

00VGK7EB744F20E579746Cm.jpg

The mushrooms were good too, they were diced button mushrooms which have a lovely earthy taste. Perhaps there could have been more mushrooms but again you can't complain at that price.

00VGK242A22B8E0E40A0AEm.jpg

The toast was quite decent and it was thickly sliced and it wasn't the Hongkie style sweet tasting bread but normal bread!

The bacon was a bit weird for me, it was hard and crumbly

00VGK36E0D91BCE5070993m.jpg

00VGK99721297740E80A92m.jpg

The eggs were acceptable, half Western and half Hongkie style because of the crispy edges.

For Western palates that are not demanding, the breakfast would definitely pass the test.

As for Hongkies, this is definitely a truly Western breakfast in their eyes!!!

Koon Thai Hai Nam Chicken (Tin Hau)

00VGK0F0524ACCF5A67E87m.jpg

There are about three branches of Koon Thai Hai Nam Chicken in Hong Kong but the menu differs at different branches.

The menu below is not served at the Wan Chai branch which is why I dined here.

00VGK1B2AC109F6CF16BB6m.jpg

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Minced pork with spicy and sour sauce:

00VGJXA9DEA54E4932BAA9m.jpg

When I saw this, I knew I was in trouble because the minced pork was orange so I knew it was going to be hot and you could also see finely grounded chili powder on the minced pork.

After trying a little morsel of minced pork, I knew I had to leave it because it was way too spicy!!!!!!!

I have tried this dish at other restaurants but not as spicy as this.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Shredded chicken with spinach noodles:

00VGJYC37F4C0503B2E0CDm.jpg

I had better luck with the shredded chicken.

There was so much shredded chicken on this plate.

00VGJZ3CE1166C8957049Am.jpg

The green noodles did not have any outstanding taste and the texture was just like chewy ultra al dente instant noodles.

博多一幸舍 (Causeway Bay)

Initially this ramen joint started off at Ramen Champion in Jordan and now they have their own joint opposite Butao!!

00VGJE513F318550AC1636m.jpg

There had been several tastings at this place so I have read quite a few reviews before coming, however on my visit there was not much briefing about their ramen.

What surprised me was that they have so much branches in INDONESIA, yet there is only one branch in Hong Kong.

It surprises me that Indonesians eat Ramen because the broth is pork based.

00VGJB1C59FD37D7C2B218m.jpg

The restaurant used to be David Ramen, so the setting is slightly similar with a bar table at one side and tables on the other side.

00VGJJ8169E59DDDAE88F1m.jpg

00VGJIFE019F948F97FA62m.jpg

00VGJHB69151BB9832A11Cm.jpg

Basically there were four broths to choose from:

00VGJFC6D1ED6956408B59m.jpg

I chose the original because I just wanted to try their broth and chose super hard noodles because they are going to go soft after I have taken pictures.

00VGJG84D68E206D2882A5m.jpg

For the egg I chose onsen egg because most ramen places just serve soft boiled eggs.

When choosing the broth, you have to select the saltiness.

I chose the one without the salt flavouring because they already have it on the table.

00VGJKBD290A66B972A59Cm.jpg

It is recommended to press the bottle dispenser two times which is about two teaspoons to give the ramen the right saltiness levels.

00VGJLBC5F048FD44930B7m.jpg

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

Original ramen:

00VGJCB0CD7EAD192877E1m.jpg

Surprisingly the soup was great, it was light but creamy and the soup hung well to the ramen.

00VGJDECE6CAAD7FA61559m.jpg

The onsen egg was mixed into the broth making it slightly thicker and creamier.
