  1. 老饕們可以對德式肉腸、豬手不屑一顧,但絕不能否則德國啤酒的地位。以慕尼黑為首的啤酒節 (Oktoberfest) 最初起源於1810年,至今已有二百多年,在香港/有27年歷史,而在澳門,原來也來到第十屆了!

       

    IMG_2592.jpg

     

    得蒙澳門旅遊局邀請,本週四參加了第十屆「美高梅澳門德國啤酒節」(10.18-10.29);以往九屆澳門啤酒節都是在澳門半島的 美高梅 進行,海景雖美,但地方始終不大。今年活動移師本年 2月開幕的 美獅美高梅 舉行,地方更大、氣氛更好,是個不可多得的德式慶典! 

     

     

    IMG_2528.jpg IMG_2532.jpg

     

    IMG_2530.jpg IMG_2535.JPG

     

    這場盛會改在美獅美高梅一樓平台舉行,在視博廣場內,到處可見啤酒節的清晰指示牌,而在前往啤酒節的途中、盛焰 58 的門外,還可見到傳統德式服裝的女郎在笑臉恭候;而抵達現場後,還有招牌 MGM 獅子與大家打招呼,也可以找牠合照哦~

     

    IMG_2534.jpg

     

    IMG_2542.jpg

     

    新場地比之前大多了,而且今年幾個颱風過去、天氣轉涼後,才迎來氣氛濃厚的啤酒節;在這裡無論是喝酒還是跳舞,都感到特別清爽舒適,是為天公造美也!

     

    IMG_2543.jpg

     

    IMG_2588.jpg

     

    正是因為場地大了,場內新增了不同的攤位遊戲,愛玩的朋友不妨去測試一下自己的技術/手氣,如幸運的話還有機會換領可愛的獅子精品哦!

    IMG_2592.jpg

     

    偏心的覺得 MGM 獅子超帥氣漂亮;雖然技不如人,贏不到牠回家,但在場內留一張合照總是好的。獅子,我們一起來為第十屆美高梅澳門德國啤酒節 Prost (德文的乾杯)!

    IMG_2549.jpg

     

    除了傳統德國盧雲堡啤酒 Löwenbräu($170入場門票已包一杯啤酒或飲品),啤酒節當然少不了 Oktoberfest Bretz'n ($80),也即是我們熟悉的 Pretzel 來伴酒;夠多人的話,也十分推介 Bayrische Wurstplate ($200),內容包括德國凍肉、醃熏火腿、肝醬、甘布左拉芝士、酸黃瓜、雞尾洋蔥、小紅蘿蔔、黑稞麥麵包及牛油,每一款都很好吃!

     

    IMG_2547.jpg

     

    IMG_2552.jpg

     

    特別一提,2018年是「美高梅澳門德國啤酒節」的十周年,也是澳門美食年。隨著由慕尼黑遠道而來的 Högl Fun 樂隊再度親臨,並獻上表演,以及主禮嘉賓包括何超瓊女士致詞、剪綵並祝酒後,第十屆澳門啤酒節正式展開!Prost!

    vbox5121_GRS_2162_140444_small.JPG

     

    歡樂的啤酒派對,怎可缺少強勁的音樂?啤酒節中 Högl Fun 樂隊會落力為大家演唱,除了多首熟悉的德國歌曲,他們更特別為啤酒節創作主題曲「您好,澳門!」,以廣東話語句配上輕快歡樂的旋律,帶來一陣又一陣的高潮!想感受現場歡樂氣氛,可 按此收看 影片。

     

    IMG_2582.jpg

     

    vbox5121_GRS_2101_134047_small.JPG

     

    Högl Fun 的音樂太有感染力了,有看影片的話,就會知道場內可愛的啤酒女郎,也會跟著聞歌起舞;見到她們歡慶投入的模樣,甜魔媽媽一顆大媽心,也跟著她們一起舞動起來!XD

     

    IMG_2554.jpgIMG_2573.jpg

     

    IMG_2583.jpg

     

    歡樂過後,肚子有點空隙,不如來試試 Schlachtplatte für 2 雙人德國特色併盤 ($400)?內容十分豐富包括燒豬手、燒雞半隻、圖林根香腸、紐倫堡豬肉腸、恰德國牛仔腸、薯蓉、酸椰菜及甜芥末,真的只是二人份量嗎?我抱懷疑態度,但味道無庸置疑是很好的!

     

    IMG_2591.jpg

     

    IMG_3126.JPG

     

    甚麼?甜牙齒未夠滿足?來份美高梅黑森林蛋糕 ($80) 或是焗巴伐琳蘋果批配香草醬 ($80),應該滿足了;尚有更多美酒美食選擇,可參考 酒店網站。啤酒節另設10月28日家庭同樂日,以及酒店從業員同樂日,大家也一起投入這德式慶典吧!

     

    ----------------------------------------

    今篇也順便記錄啤酒節前,在 Coast 濤岸 的午餐;加洲風味的餐廳環境迷人、氣氛又輕鬆;本年七月入住時,曾在這裡吃過 豐盛自助早餐,留下很好的印象,原來午餐也非常出色!

     

    IMG_2495.jpg

     

    IMG_2501.jpg

     

    首先奉上的不是免費麵包籃,而是可口的爆谷;上面加了橄欖油及巴馬臣芝士粉,有特色又好吃。接著品嚐店內招牌推介的 羽衣甘藍沙律配烤南瓜及石榴籽 Kale with Roasted Pumpkin and Pomegranate Seeds ($88),營養豐富的羽衣甘藍口感難得不嚡,拌上又是非常有益的南瓜粒、石榴籽,以及沙律醬後,味道清新怡人,是款集健康與美味於一身的頭盤。

     

    IMG_2505.jpg

     

    IMG_2507.jpg

     

    主菜選了又是招牌的 烤牛脊扒配黑豆、牛油果莎莎 Grilled Skirt Steak with Black Beans and Avocado Salsa ($288);牛脊扒肉質不及西冷、肉腿柔嫩,卻勝在肉味濃厚又有嚼頭,配上牛油果莎莎醬料,滋味豐富迷人,底下還有不少健康黑豆增加飽肚感。


    IMG_2509.JPG

     

    IMG_2515.jpg

     

    甜品選了招牌推介的 菠蘿薄片配椰子雪葩及熱情果 Pineapple Carpaccio with Coconut Sorbet and Passion Fruit ($68),口味清新之極,加上一壺幽香伯爵茶,實在是飽餐後最佳選擇!

     

    IMG_2516.jpg

     

    IMG_2520.jpg

     

    整體十分出色的一頓,下次大家遊澳門想找氣氛輕鬆的高質西餐,懂得怎樣選了吧?

    香港便のフライトではなるべく香港映画を観るようにします。
    香港映画は日本で上映しないものが多いですからね。観られるチャンスがあるときは観る!
    今回、私はANAで行きましたが機内で『我的情敵女婿(A Beautiful Moment)』という映画を鑑賞しました。
    2018年のお正月映画だった作品です。お正月映画は「賀歲片」と言います。
    香港では毎年旧正月に合わせて「賀歲片」が上映されます。
    大体はみんなが知っているスターが出演して、笑いあり、恋愛あり、人情ありといった娯楽映画。日本で言うところの寅さん映画みたいな感じかな。

    ストーリーは・・・
    精神科医の鍾嘉寶(カリーナ・ラウ)は2人の娘を持つ母親。下の娘ヤンヤン(ミシェル・ワイ)が結婚したいと連れてきた相手は、かつての恋人、梁華生(サイモン・ヤム)だった・・・。
    という母親と娘と三角関係になる(?)ラブコメディ。
    カリーナとサイモンは25年ぶりの共演だとか!サイモン・ヤム、大好きなんだ!!『PTU』からのファンです!!!

    44319265_1999231826803074_7574544472856330240_n.jpg
    私、カリーナのInstagramフォローしてます!この人、どんどん綺麗になってない?
    50歳超えたよね?身体もすごく締まってるし肌も綺麗。美魔女化してる!!

    44298348_1999231916803065_2280909800642445312_n.jpg
    サイモン・ヤムもおっちゃんになったなぁと思うけど、やっぱりカッコいい。香港人のカッコいいおっちゃん!

    2288217_1.jpg
    二人が昔を思い出しながら一夜だけデートするシーン。トラム120号に乗ってます!香港の街を歩いていると、こういう撮影シーンに出くわすチャンスがあるからワクワクしますね。
    (一度も遭遇したことないけどさ・・・)

    160126-122828_R.jpg
    2人が若い頃によくデートで使っていたお店という設定で出たのが、私がお気に入りの茶餐廳だった!
    思わず「うわっ!あそこじゃんっ!!!」って心の中ではしゃいでしまいました。
    湾仔の『德如茶餐廳』は2年前に偶然見つけたお店ですが、香港式ミルクティーが絶品です!!この前行けばよかったー。行きのフライトでこの映画を観ていたら、滞在中に絶対行ったのに!!
    (鑑賞したのは帰国便でした・・・とほほ)

    ◆湾仔の路地裏で絶品ミルクティー発見!~ 德如茶餐廳(2016/2/29記事)

    こんな感じで撮影したんですねぇ・・・。

    そしてお正月映画の醍醐味は出演者。本当にいろんなスターがチョイ出演するんです。何人知っているスターが出演しているでしょうね。

    44321783_1999231880136402_3345772350988615680_n.jpg
    私が大好きなニコラス・ツェのお父様、謝賢(パトリック・ツェ)も出演してました!
    もう82歳なんですね。久々の映画出演のようですが、今回はギャンブラー役だよー。

    44259765_1999231933469730_981358365953228800_n.jpg
    これまた私が大好きな女優、羅蘭(ローラン)さんも!上品なおばあちゃんから下町のおばあちゃんまで演じられる、でもとても素敵な女優さん。日本で言うと・・・草笛光子さんのような女優さんだろうか。「桃さんのしあわせ」にも出演していました。

    44166617_1999231783469745_3367586511359836160_n.jpg
    歌手の容祖兒(ジョイ・ヨン)も出演!彼女ももうアラフォーなんですねぇ。

    と、これだけではありませんが、あちこちに「あれ?この人観たことある!」なスターがワサワサと出演しています。

    映画の予告編はこちら!


    映画自体はテンポが速くて、笑いが盛りだくさん。ストーリー性よりも娯楽重視なのでそのあたりはご了承を。それでもやっぱり楽しめるのがお正月映画です。
    まだDVD化されていないようですが、またゆっくり観たいなぁ。

    香港映画ってさ、知ってる風景がたくさんでそれだけでも嬉しいのに、行ったことあるお店が映っていたりすると余計にテンションあがりますよね。

    香港便のフライトは香港映画を観るべしべし!

  3. 初抵德國,第一站不是首都柏林而是科隆,還要下大雨,雖然如此亦無阻我要吃德國鹹豬手的決心,經過搜索後就絕對去這間Haxenhaus,是在舊城區的一間老店。



    既然是在舊城區的老店,環境老舊好像是常識(不對),油漆都剝落了最少也修補一下吧?

    IMG_7578.JPG

    發現傳說中的大鑼,敲下去是要請客的意思囉?

    IMG_7580.JPG

    在德國豈能不喝啤酒呢?這個Gaffel是科隆的地道啤酒品牌,科隆啤酒有一個專有名詞叫Kölsch,是上層常溫發酵的啤酒…詳細就查Google吧。這啤酒味道跟顏色一樣很清,酒味不強帶點微酸,夏天喝整個人就是爽。

    IMG_7582.JPG

    餐具放在很可愛的木桶裡,這個木桶跟插海盜那個玩具有87%相像。

    IMG_7589.JPG

    豬手以超乎想像的速度上菜,明顯不會是即點即做,這麼大隻豬手如果是現做我想要四十五分鐘吧?這道菜是Pork knuckle Kölner Art,似乎是科隆獨有的做法,其特點是在豬手上鋪有芝士,慶幸這裡是德國,沒有出現邪惡拉絲,但另一方面芝士真的只是鋪在上面,並沒有跟豬手有甚麼關連,頂多就是黏著豬皮而已。芝士的鹹香味頗濃郁,有點像車打芝士。豬皮由於厚度偏厚,焗出來偏向硬身多於脆口了。豬肉的味道就偏鹹,配啤酒可以但更應該減鹽。另外似乎焗豬手的時間太長,肉汁很少肉質也乾柴,我覺得我在捷克吃到的還更好吃。

    IMG_7585.JPG

    雖然我對這評價不高,但既然是當地名物,吃個一次也不太過份,鹹豬手喎﹗有邊個男人唔想?

  4. 班戟就像魔法一樣,令很多人都著迷,包括我在裡。上年和好友去大阪旅行時,特意品嚐了幸福pancake,吃過之後令人有一種幸福的感覺。想不到一年多後,幸福pancake終於來到了香港,想吃pancake的不用特意去日本都可以吃了。

    1.jpg
    不說不知道,原來幸福pancake在2014才開設其第一間分店,幾年期間,已經紅遍日本,現在更來了香港,可想而知她的魔力有多強勁呢。而裝備方面亦很有日式的味道,差點以為自己飛了去日本呢。


    2.jpg
    迷人班戟

    4.jpg
    在日本吃過了原味,這次在香港,想試試其他味道,來了一份鹹的和一份甜的。
    先說鹹的,用上了全麥粉來做,pancake的口感更加豐富,而且多了一份麥香;起初會以為沒有醬汁會有點乾,但原來與蛋同吃,是半點乾的感覺也沒有。我選的是芝士奄列,多了一份芝士香,味道更加的棒。個人覺得喜歡鹹點的朋友是可以一試的。

    3.jpg
    而甜味的我則選了朱古力香蕉班戟,甜味pancake入口軟軟的,立刻令人有幸福的感覺,名符其實的為幸福pancake呢。本來以為加了朱古力會很膩,但因為這朱古力不會很甜,所以一點膩感也沒有,而且與香蕉十分的相配。而那鮮忌廉亦很香滑,班戟+朱古力+鮮忌廉,令人幸福度大大的提升!

    聽說另一款奶茶班戟配自家製榖麥亦很棒呢,喜歡奶茶的朋友不妨一試喔。

  5. Since Tsuta opened, there are now two branches.
    At Causeway Bay, they have just launched the new Teriyaki Chicken Soba and Teriyaki Spicy Chicken Soba along with Deep fried chicken and some gyozas.
    Chicken is much nicer compared to pork so I had to try it and the soba they use is slightly different to ones they use in the Shio Soba as it is thinner.

    42328914_1988981151145782_7710584603210571071_n.jpg

    Same as the other sobas, you can choose how many pieces of chicken, egg etc in your soba.
    42313709_517500832049283_4687875537498906023_n.jpg

    IT IS CONFUSING HERE BECAUSE THE CHINESE MENU SAYS RAMEN WHEREAS THE ENGLISH MENU SAYS SOBA.
    ANYWAY FOR THE CHICKEN THE ENGLISH MENU SAYS SOBA.

    42481537_572586946491218_3396280816062186068_n.jpg

    To summarize, the Teriyaki Chicken is quite sweet and the non spicy one has a stronger chicken taste in the broth.
    For the spicy one, this one was interesting, if you eat it just as it is you get the spiciness but after you add the tomato paste in the broth it becomes more appetizing and brings out the chicken!!!!!
    The fried chicken was good for sharing if one ramen isn't too enough for you but then they also have large ramens.

    家住荃灣市中心,想吃自助餐,但又不想跨區,通常只有兩個選擇,就是到荃灣兩家較大的酒店。兩家酒店中,悅來很久之前試過,另一定如心海景酒店的Café Circles這天終於有機會一試。

    IMG_1204.jpg

    我在數年前嚐過如心海景酒店七樓的如粵滬中菜廳,超美的海景,遠望藍巴勒海峽,環境非常優美。這天來到更高的九樓餐廳Café Circles,遺憾天色已入黑,無緣重溫那無敵美景。

    IMG_1237.JPG

    雖不是坐窗邊,不過這晚的「亞太海鮮盛宴自助晚餐」定價真心便宜,成人星期一至四只需$428,平日跨區外出吃自助餐,如再計算車費成本更高,所以不想舟居勞頓,或許留區消費會是更好的選擇。

    IMG_0687.jpg

    Café Circles位於如心海景酒店九樓,一進餐廳,馬上就被門口那張長木桌吸引眼球。細心一看,原來那是由原木造成的、沒有駁口的長桌,能坐24人以上!若有大型家庭或朋友聚會,會是個不錯的選擇吧。

    IMG_1189.jpg

    再內進餐廳,就看到正中央的食物區,款式比預期的多,而且鄰近大部份座位,十分方便。

    IMG_1202.jpg

    先說飲品區,現在很多自助餐都不設飲品、限定一杯又或需另收費用,這裡的果汁奶茶咖啡全部自助任飲,方便貼心。

    IMG_1084.jpg

    自助沙律吧當然不缺,想健康一點,先來少許清新沙律會是個好選擇。

    IMG_1574.JPG

    沙律吧旁邊就是冷海鮮區,很多人吃自助餐就是為了吃海鮮,Café Circles的供應的海鮮種類大路,當天就有蟹腳熟蝦青口小龍蝦翡翠螺,個人覺得最好吃的是蟹腳,質素很好,以這價錢來說是有驚喜。

    IMG_1082.jpg

    在海鮮區旁的是cold cut凍肉區,款式也是比預期的多,有些也是不常見的,例如黑椒吞拿魚燒釀雞卷豬肉啫喱等。

    IMG_1051.jpg

    日式壽司款式更多,有生的也有熟的,小朋友和老人家也不愁沒有選擇。

    IMG_1345.jpg

    想吃日式料理,還有對面的刺身冷麵,刺身質素中規中矩,但勝在即叫即切,個人覺得最好是甜蝦,值得encore。

    IMG_1337.jpg

    熟食熱葷則主要在餐廳的最裡面,香口的煎炸物都放在一起,就連焗釀蟹蓋都有。個人最喜蔗蝦魚餅,肉質彈牙,不比泰式餐廳差。

    IMG_1333.jpg

    湯品除了常客忌廉湯,還有自助餐少見的酸辣湯

    IMG_1102.jpg

    熟食中還有很吸引我的自家製明爐燒味叉燒賣相不錯,味道也合格,其他如燒雞燒肉也不差,當然吃肉多難以回本,但美食當前,又是我喜歡的,淺嚐少許也不錯。

    IMG_1336.jpg

    平心而論,這裡的熟食比冷盤出色,而且款式有驚喜。龍蝦伊麵是這晚的最佳熱葷,龍蝦已切成小件,上湯充滿龍蝦味,讓人忍不住再添。蒜蓉粉絲蒸扇貝是另一亮點,粉絲盡吸精華,拌飯最佳。另外如牛肉咖哩魷魚筒燒羊架也不差,如果和家人長輩同行,應該能滿足他們。

    IMG_1203.jpg

    餐廳中央有蓋即煮區可說是熟食區的靈魂,長期有數位廚師駐守,確保能第一時間招呼人客。

    IMG_1119.jpg

    這區大部份供應的都是即煮菜式,其中一款是海鮮窩。不過這晚太飽,這一款就沒試了。

    IMG_1085.jpg

    即煮粉麵也在這邊,材粉款式頗多,看來十分不錯。

    IMG_1334.jpg

    烤牛肉就在即煮粉麵旁邊,不過這天我吃到的一塊有點過熟,生一點應該會較好。

    IMG_1335.jpg

    拐個小彎,竟然看到即煎潮式蠔餅!雖然味道似蛋餅,不是我喜歡的那種酥香炸蠔餅,不過能在自助餐中遇到,我也是非常開心的。

    IMG_1339.jpg

    最後壓軸出場了!其實坐下不久,侍應已經告訴過我們,大約730左右會有現場芝士燒珍寶蠔,看著師傅把釀好芝士的珍寶蠔一隻一隻放在爐上下火即燒,全場即時興奮!

    IMG_1340.jpg

    芝士燒珍寶蠔是沒有每人限額的,但每次只可取一隻,取完可再排隊。蠔的大小看來十分驚人,因為蠔殼竟和我的手掌差不多大!不過把芝士翻開後原來內裡是兩隻蠔來的,怪不得那麼大了。雖然芝士和忌廉的味道很不錯,但蠔的味道卻有點腥,淺嚐少許就好。

    IMG_1341.jpg

    正當我們吃著芝士燒珍寶蠔的時候,侍應卻送來一份芝士焗龍蝦鐵板燒鵝肝!原來這是每份客人一人一份的,鵝肝和龍蝦份量都很大,這個價錢的自助餐有龍蝦、鵝肝和珍寶蠔是很超值!

    IMG_1216.jpg

    最後,當然要介紹一下甜品區。

    IMG_1137.jpg

    吃甜品之前,不妨看看這裡的Cheese Platter,四款芝士,可配點葡萄和餅乾。

    IMG_1331.jpg

    這裡的甜點走小巧路線,而且貫徹款式眾多,綠茶芝士餅芒果椰子慕絲伯爵朱古力奶凍草莓乳酪蛋糕藍莓杏仁金寶等,味道不算太甜,多試幾款也不怕。

    IMG_1342.jpg

    甜品分散在餐廳每一個角落,個人認為這晚最好的甜品都集中在甜品凍櫃這邊。雪耳冰糖杏仁蛋白燉奶軟滑且奶香十足,上面加添少許燕窩點綴,輕易成為這晚的最佳甜品。其他三款奶凍都非常香滑,總括而言是我這晚流連得最多的地方。

    IMG_1338.jpg

    甜品凍櫃旁邊還有雪糕車,供應的是港人大愛的Häagen-Dazs,而這晚更有平常只能在超市家庭裝才有的香蕉味雪糕!二話不說馬上拿了一個,開心!

    IMG_0693.jpg

    對了,這裡還有朱古力噴泉,也是我家小朋友最感興奮的地方!

    IMG_1223.JPG

    最後,值得一提的是自助晚餐訂座八位或以上可獲贈至尊巨型肉眼扒,而且是由侍應即場在你面前切好奉上。這照片是鄰桌享用是拍的,如果人多來Café Circles,優惠的確很吸引。

    IMG_0759.jpg

    Café Circles自助餐價目如下:
    每位星期一至四:成人$428,小童/長者$358
    星期五至日及公眾假期:成人$478,小童/長者$388

    IMG_0750.jpg

    一分錢一分貨,平心而論,這裡的食物款式很多,味道平均,偶爾會有一兩款較為出色的款式。以荃灣這個舊區來說,個人認為這裡十分適合街坊們扶老攜幼一家人吃一頓自助餐,因為這裡的熟食尤其出色,甜品也很不錯,而且更有海景相伴,一定能滿足家中各人的不同要求。

  7. craft-beer-150x150.jpg

    A couple of years ago, we would have said the craft beer scene in Hong Kong is starting to explode. Well, we can now safely say it has exploded and is here to stay. There’s even a Craft Beer Association of Hong Kong. It’s not just bars serving craft beer, there are breweries popping up all over the city, from Kwai Chung to Kennedy Town. Many do brewery tours where you can sample a bit of everything that they brew, so make it your mission to check them out over several weekends…or perhaps do a crazy pub crawl and hit a bunch up in one night. Read on for the ultimate guide to craft beer in Hong Kong.

    Second Draft

    On the ground floor of the cool hotel and neighbourhood hangout Little Tai Hang you’ll find Second Draft. The much buzzed about gastropub pours beers from celebrated local brewers Young Master and Carbon Brews, which you can sip alongside award-winning chef May Chow’s Hong Kong-inspired menu. Keep an eye out for their rotating guest tap brews, featuring some of the best international craft beer from New Zealand, Denmark and more.

    Little Creatures

    Little Creatures brews craft beer daily in an impressive venue — when you walk in you can’t miss the 5 hectolitre brewery producing various beers served up in front at the bar, or in the large dining area. Their beer, like the signature Pale Ale, have unique key flavours such as citrus, nectarine and burnt toffee. Grab a bottle, along with a Bright Ale, Original Pilsner, IPA or Rogers Beer, as they´re sold to take home too.

    Craft Brew & Co.

    When the motto is “No Carlsberg. No Stella. No San Miguel.” then you know the bar is serious about craft beer. Craft Brew & Co., with three locations in Hong Kong, know their stuff and pour superb craft beer. If that weren’t enough, they also grill some damn fine gourmet sausages that are lean and made with all-natural casings. It’s the perfect accompaniment to their light and golden Summer Ale, or go for a Bohemian Pale Ale, Liberty IPA or Kung Fu Lager. Don’t know where to start? Book a tasting session (minimum 6 people) and learn the style, flavour and aroma of each beer.

    Pazzeria Italian Brewery

    Who knew a place in Mong Kok would be a prime spot for sampling craft beer, Italian-style?  Pazzeria Italian Brewery has authentic Italian craft beers, bottled and on tap — 16 taps in fact. There’s also a Central location, and both spots pour mainly Italian craft beers, but there’s other European beers to try, and some mean Italian food too. Suggestion, if we may? Keep the focus on the beer and tuck into a cheese board with a variety of cold cuts and cheese, paired with a Birrificio Gaia IPA or a robust Tre Fontane Tripel.

    Where: G/F 19 Hak Po Street, Mong Kok, Kowloon; 5 Elgin Street, Central
    Contact: 2506 0016 (Mong Kok); 2540 7988 (Central)

     

    K Pub

    Here’s a nice little bar only a hop and a skip away from Kennedy Town MTR station. Great for a chill night catching up with a mate…and getting acquainted with the more than 30 types of craft beer from around the world K Pub pours daily. Decent pizza and burger specials too mean this may become a weekly outing.

    Where: Shop 15, G/F, Sincere Western House, 69 Cadogan Street, Kennedy Town

    When a day of haggling at Ladies Market has finally done your head in, seek some respite at nearby TAP – The Ale Project to cool off. Billed as a gastropub, and known for having one of the biggest selections of Hong Kong craft beer on tap, they pair carefully curated beers with a food menu featuring artisanal bread as the centerpiece.

    Where: 15 Hak Po Street, Mong Kok
    Contact: 2468 2010 or info@thealeproject.com

     

    The Globe

    An old favourite with British expats in Hong Kong, everyone should get to know The Globe, not just for some of the best fish and chips this side of England, but an excellent beer selection. They feature rotating guest taps, a great excuse to come often to taste the changing brews, as is the generous happy hour, running  from 9.00am to 8.00pm. Those wanting to know their malts from their ambers can sign up for a tutored beer tasting, tailored for a couple of friends or a large group.

    Where:  Garely Building, 45-53 Graham Street, Central
    Contact: 2543 1941 or info@theglobe.com.hk

     

    65Peel

    One of the trendier ones on the list, with a loyal Instagram following and hip Hong Kongers filling the joint inside and spilling out onto the street, the two-year-old 65Peel serves some of the best local beer from breweries like Young Master Ales to Nine Dragons. When your fingers are free from posting pics and sipping pints, dabble in some of the Asian-inspired cuisine on hand as well.

    Where: G/F, 65 Peel Street, Central
    Contact: 2342 2224 or 65peel@gmail.com

     

    Cheers The Tap Room

    An unassuming wee spot in Mong Kok with local and international craft beers on tap, where the staff is just as friendly as the clientele. And as it’s mainly a young crowd, there’s a good chance no one will be yelling out “Norm!” when you walk in (older readers will understand). Good for a beer flight to try a bit of everything, and a “craft pizza” to soak it all up.

    Where: G/F, 13 Hak Po Street, Mong Kok
    Contact: 2341 5999

     

    The Beer Bay – Central Pier 3 & 4

    You probably won’t head here for a night out, as it’s pretty much a small kiosk in the middle of Central piers 3 and 4, but you’ll be thankful for it when you’re waiting to board the ferry on a hot summer day. Despite its size, it has an impressive range of British and American craft beers, and lots of UK crisps to curb those salty cravings that often come with beer drinking.

    Where: Pier 3 and Pier 4, Central Ferry Pier
    Contact: 3481 7290

     

    Young Master Brewery

    While not set up for dining and drinking, this multi award-winning brewery does allow for sampling their craft beers on Saturday tours, and it’s definitely worth booking as these guys are known for starting the craft brewing movement in Hong Kong. Their Hong Kong-inspired beer is unique and enticing, like the Cha Chaan Teng Gose made with local salted lime.

    Where: G/F, Sungib Industrial Centre, 53 Wong Chuk Hang Road, Wong Chuk Hang
    Contact: 2783 8907 or info@youngmasterales.com

     

    Black Kite Brewery

    Black Kite Brewery calls Wong Chuk Hang home and lets you taste their product via monthly scheduled tours. Founders Dan and Dave Gallie use fresh ingredients from around the globe to make their beer in a range of signature styles, such as the Southside Ale, a fragrant light ale brewed with jasmine tea. For more daring palates, there’s the Oh, Bacon! Rauchbier smoked ale.

    Where: 11B Derrick Industrial Building, 49 Wong Chuk Hang Road, Wong Chuk Hang
    Contact: beer@blackkite.hk

     

    Lion Rock Brewery

    One of the originals, Lion Rock Brewery’s craft beer is made without artificial flavours, colourings or preservatives, brewed with the four premium ingredients all top brewers swear by — water, malts, hops and yeast. The flagship Lion Rock Signature Pale Ale is a lovely introduction, with a silky foam and fruity notes of peach and gooseberries. Grab a glass at The Globe, 65 Peel and many other bars across the city.

    Where: Unit 2, 14/F, Man Shing Industrial Building, 307-311 Castle Peak Road, Kwai Chung, New Territories

    Carbon Brews

    New on the scene, Carbon Brews’ product can be downed at venues like Second Draft, K Pub and Craftissimo, where you’ll find their debut craft beer, 366BU, a double dry hopped pale ale with fruity aromas of melon, papaya, orange, lime and lemon. Also on tap is the Strawberry 100g/l, a refreshing dry-hopped American pale ale infused with, yup, 100g/L of strawberries.

    Contact: 2620 0095

Fast forward a couple of decades, and their attractively-designed bottles can be found in major supermarkets and specialty booze shops across the city, and ready to pour on tap in hotel bars and pubs. With varieties like Dragon’s Back pale ale and Big Wave Bay IPA, you can’t get more Hong Kong than this beer.

    Where: Unit 5A, Ground Floor, Wah Shing Centre, 5 Fung Yip Street, Chai Wan
    Contact: 2580 2360 or info@hkbeerco.com

     

    Gweilo Beer

    HK expats have certainly heard the term “Gweilo” by now, but here it’s presented in a fun, fresh way — through refreshing beer. Known as “foreign devil”, the term has evolved to gentler definitions over time (plain old “foreigner”), and each bottle of Gweilo beer will too evolve, with the phrase on the label changing meaning over time. The Fo Tan-based brewery makes session-style ales ranging between 4% and 6%, like their IPA, brewed with European malt and a secret blend of South Pacific and American hops. Buy it and others online or in stores across the city.

    Where: Fo Tan
    Contact: info@gweilobeer.com

     

    Mak´s Beer

    This is beer made for locals by locals — three guys named Ball, Mark and Ken to be exact. They had a dream to bring Hong Kong Cantonese beer to the world, and they’re doing it, brewing exclusive craft beer using ingredients like dried longan and goji berries (Longan Pale Ale) and dried mint leaves and honey (Mint Beer). Sample some at pop-ups and markets in town, or at venues like HK Island Taphouse and Yum Cha.

    Contact: 6174 7740 or hey.bro@maksbeer.com

     

    Heroes Beer Co

    Where: Room 1411, Remex Centre, 42 Wong Chuk Hang Road
    Contact: 3996 9740 or info@heroesbeerco.com

The brewery in Kwai Hing where they make their staple brews (like Hong Kong Bastard Imperial IPA or Quit Your Job!, and other amusing names) has a production capacity of more than 5,000 liters, allowing the award-winning brewers to tackle numerous experimental single batch brews. Have a taste Friday evenings on a brewery tour from 5.30pm to 7.30 pm (no booking needed).

Their hand-crafted beers can be found in stores and places like Strokes or Cheers The Tap Room, served in beautifully-illustrated bottles or signature golden gourd glasses. Better yet, head to their brewery to see how it’s all done, then hang out in the spacious tap room for a glass of their flagship Thunder God ale or a rich Moon Goddess chocolate stout.

  9. Hey guys! How have you been? A lot of people have been wondering where the eff do I get the money to pay for all the fancy gyms and workouts I go to. Well, here’s what I will tell you – I’m usually not sponsored, and when I am I’ll fully disclose it. I believe in paying for things I deem worthy, and only when I try stuff for myself will I feel the pinch of pros and cons for reals.

    With that said, here’s the reveal – I am self-paid on Guava Pass. (Been on the $1,588/month 3-months unlimited* classes package – you’re tied in for 3 months but you pay per month). Read on if you want the real truth. #livingmytruth

    25035872_402971296825905_443218109869640

    me @ Warrior Academy

    What is Guava Pass?

    It is an aggregator of gyms around town that lets you pay one price and visit all sorts of fancy gyms. Literally the best ones in town, for less than HK$2000/month – meaning less than HK$200/class. Well what’s the catch? You only get to visit each gym 2 or 3 times a month.

    I think it started out being a way for people to try out gyms, get a taste of what they offer, or for travellers who just need a couple of classes when they’re in town. But for me, it turned into a hack to save some coins.

    Full disclosure of course there are other competitors a la KFIT but I find the selection of gyms on GP is better, and so the price is higher too.

    The Pros

    1. Money saved – Instead of paying $2-3000 per month for a membership at a kickboxing, or rebounding, or pilates gym, you pay almost half the price but get the same quality classes. Some of my haunts include Flex Studios, Pherform, Optimum Performance Studio, and Lemondrop Studio. I DIE for some of the kitted out vanity rooms of some places – and honestly isn’t that half the reason one would keep going back to the same gym? (minus the hot trainers)
    2. Variety – Don’t know about you, but I believe in a balanced workout as much as a balanced diet. That’s why most gyms offer yoga to counter the weight training or cardio. But with GP, I get to go the best classes, studios and instructors of my choosing. Kind of like a gym hit list if you will, that you can create and schedule your week around.
    3. Convenience – As a freelancer, I move around a lot. One week I’m mostly around Kennedy Town, the next week I may be stuck near Mongkok. GP lets me choose gyms that are convenient for me to get to instead of lugging my kit on a journey to the gym. It might not make sense for regular worker bees, but it does for me.

    The Cons

    1. Money wasted – If you don’t use your classes, you’re wasting money. If you cancel a class late, you get hit with $80 penalty. If you don’t go on at least 10 classes per month on an unlimited plan, each class you do go will decrease in value. All in all, you gotta be disciplined, or be prepared to spend some cash.P.S. you can pause your account when you go on holidays or want to take a short break.
    2. Inconsistency – Classes are harder to book than if you were an actual member of the gym. Makes sense for the gym, but probably not so much for you if you’re looking for some routine in your workout life. I probably only get to the same class once a month. Also probably won’t be able to book the same class as your friends – like I said, spots are quite limited.
    3. Discounted experience* – Gyms you visit aren’t designed for people who come and go. In all honesty, it will be harder to get to know the trainers and be a part of the communities. They might not take you seriously because they assume they won’t see you a second time. But if you’re only in for the workouts, then it probably won’t be something you see as a con.*But on the flip side I have made friends from all the different GP gyms just from one visit!
    4. Inconveniences? – There are times, maybe once or twice a month for me, where classes get cancelled because the class didn’t reach the headcount. But there are also times, where I rock up and unbeknowingly joined a personal training session because I was the only student. I’ve honestly had many a valuable lessons in pilates, weight training, functional training and more because of these accidental 1-on-1 sessions. So to me, NBD when a class gets cancelled once in a while. #yolo

    Me @ Feel Fit Factory

    TL;DR

    In conclusion… I love GP. If you’re a last minute kinda guy, or moves around town a lot, or want to try out the gyms and workouts before signing up, GP is great for you. If you’re short on cash and want the full experience of boujis gyms around town, GP is probably the only way to go as well. Like of course there are cons, but you take it knowing you are also paying less for the difference.

    IF you found this article helpful and want to try out Guava Pass, please do sign up via my link here and get some discounts.

    Everyone who has an account gets one, I’m not special or sponsored OR affiliated. Just another girl who’s trying to earn a few free classes from referrals. If you do end up signing up through my link, I sincerely thank you in advance 🙂

    Till next time,

  10. I didn't know that you could get crisps and cup noodles in India so when I found out, I managed to get some crisps from the local store.
    I got Magic Masala by Lay's.

    IMG_20180725_224241.jpg

    Inside, you get crinkle cut crisp and they were extremely spicy.
    They tasted like spring onion crisps with a fiery kick but after you get used to the spiciness, they were quite good.

    From the packet, it says they manufactured by Pepsico India Holdings.

  11. 谈到高尔夫,我觉得自己是一个向前看的人 - 比如,我喜欢看到新规则的引进,高尔夫技术的革新,以及具有与众不同风格的新球员。

    但与此同时,高尔夫本身及其格式多年来都是相当保守的。在 新时代技术,资源和游戏个性一直在演变的同时,高尔夫运动从初始到现在,经过了几个世纪,似乎并没有太大改变。

    所以,当看到高尔夫世界欣然接受了像怡安挑战这样的创新理念时,的确令人耳目一新。 我稍后会对此进行评论,但我们先快速了解一下这个挑战究竟是什么。

    风险与回报

    最近,全球专业服务公司怡安宣布了PGALPGA的多年合作伙伴关系。将来每年的怡安挑战将覆盖整个常规赛季成为一场全新的全年竞赛。

    男女美巡赛和怡安已经从比赛日程中的不同球场选出了一些个人洞,而球员们则需要用他们认为最适合的策略打这些洞。 每个洞都呈现了不同的挑战。每个洞的风险回报挑战是与怡安的业务客户需要在董事会中做出的战略决策有明确的联系的。

    因为挑战赛的球洞覆盖2019赛季的男子美巡28站比赛以及女子美巡30站,球员们需要参加一定数量的比赛才有资格参加怡安挑战赛。每位有资格的选手将出现在全球排行榜上,其中PGALPGA的获胜者将各赢得100万美元的奖金。

    一个公平竞争的环境

    首先我认为刚刚讲述的这一点是一个非常受欢迎的发展。能看到职业运动员 - 无论是男性还是女性 -争夺平等的奖金,这是一个很大的进步。 职业体育奖金之间的性别差异 -高尔夫在内 - 已经持续了太长时间。我希望如此的平等代表了我们的将来。

    我觉得整个挑战赛德的概念也是很棒的。 之前的柯达挑战赛曾经尝试过类似的东西-- 能在PGA赛季当中的多个特色洞中获得最低累积分数的选手获得100万美元的奖金。 但这感觉真的与以往不同 - 一部分要归功于LPGA的加入。

    虽然战略挑战是市场策略(以及高尔夫球场和董事会决策过程之间仅仅存在的微弱联系),我认为这样的创新为赛季增添了额外的维度。 对我来说,高尔夫和许多体育运动一样,都有很多丰富多彩的故事。 通过编制了一个主要故事情节,个人竞争可能会提升到日常竞赛水准之上,所以这样的挑战可以给整个赛季再添加另一层生气。

    解决问题的挑战

    当然,能看到职业球员如何应对他们所面临的多种挑战对我来说也是很有吸引力的。

    高尔夫这个运动可以说是一个持续解决问题的练习。怡安和男女美巡赛实际上已经在这里将焦点从选手身上转移到了他们在每个球洞解决问题的能力。  即使某个选手输掉了锦标赛,但是说不定她非常漂亮地解决了一个困难的怡安风险回报挑战赛的问题。这可以帮助我们粉丝获得关于不同选手如何处理不同难题的新观点,我很期待。 我也非常希望香港公开赛(在香港高尔夫俱乐部举行)是比赛的一部分 - 这对于香港赛事的排名非常有帮助。

    至于这种战略合作伙伴关系是否代表了将来,其实未来已经在我们眼前了。当政府机构,广告商和活动组织者不断地在用新颖的方式来吸引新的观众,这种创新思维也在体育运动中出现越来越多(比如新兴的,短时间的板球形式)。

    高尔夫已经意识到新思维的必要性,这是令人鼓舞的。但这个历史悠久的运动是否会突破其传统的局限性还有待观察。

  12. I posted on my blog a while ago about my efforts to learn Mandarin. It’s really hard... but for me, it’s not just about the personal challenge of learning a new and complex language – it’s also about trying truly understand and get under the skin of a completely different culture. This is important for me because I think that learning a language is also a great way to gain an insight into the way that people think and talk about business. So, I was really pleased to be able to head to Beijing recently for a few weeks to try and give my Mandarin a boost – and I have to say it was a very productive and interesting visit.                  

    A tech revolution

    There are many fascinating cultural differences that strike you when you visit Beijing – but I was struck on this particular visit by one overriding phenomenon – the extent to which the Chinese have embraced the QR code. While you do often see QR codes being used in all sorts of settings in the rest of the world, I was struck by just how ubiquitous the technology has become in China. In Beijing, I saw it being used for everything from renting bicycles on the street to ordering your food in restaurants – with most people using WeChat to scan the code for information.

    WeChat now has around a billion users and could be described as the WhatsApp of China – and it allows not just QR code scanning but also payment using your phone and a linked bank account. Again, along with the QR code it was a piece of tech I’d heard of – but had no idea of the extent to which it is now being used in China.

    Multiple uses

    Here’s a quick example – my wife, her parents and I went to a restaurant that had no menus and only one waiter for more than ten tables. This unusual set up worked like a dream however – because diners simply needed to scan the QR code on the table to access the menu, place the order and then pay the bill. It’s a nice example of just how far the QR code has permeated almost every aspect of consumer life in Beijing – but it’s far from the only one.

    On the same trip, the first thing my father-in-law did was hand to me a mobile phone that had multiple apps loaded onto it that allowed for payment by QR code. After leaving the restaurant that evening, we stepped outside, found a yellow ofo bicycle, scanned the QR code, unlocked the bike and pedalled off. We then went to the San Yuan Li Market ( 三源里菜市场) to buy some fruit and veg, and used another app to scan a QR code which was taped onto a pole next to the fruit lady’s stand – once again, payment was immediate and hassle-free.

    Robert Weider - QR Bike

    Simple tech, but with many applications

    I could go on: everywhere, right across the city, in everything from tea shops to the local craft brewery, we were able to use QR codes to pay quickly and easily. Of course, you need to be settled in China to use them, as without a local credit card or bank account to top-up the payment the apps are useless – but the principle still stands that China has embraced this technology in multiple ways and has made it straightforward and simple to use.

    So, what did I learn from the experience of using QR codes in so many different ways in Beijing? Well, firstly that often the simplest solutions are often the best – the technology behind QR codes is not new, nor is it particularly complex. The impact, for me at least, was being in Beijing and seeing the extent to which it has been implemented across almost every type of transaction you can think of.

    And I think that, in many ways, that is the key to the success of any piece of technology: it has to be simple enough for people to be able to make it their own, to take it and shape it so that it works for them, whenever and wherever they need it. Because of the flexibility and adaptability of this simple technology to so many different environments – from lampposts to bikes to restaurant tables – China truly has become the land of the QR Code.

  13. Great professional French actors come exceptionally from France for the HK French Theater Festival to perform in:

    Politically correct //  Politiquement correct  --- English Subtitles --
    @ Sheung Wan Civic Center     March 8th   8:00 PM     Buy tickets www.ticketflap.com/hkftf3

    23rd of April 2017. Thunderclap for some: The far-right party made it to the second round of the presidential election. Love at first sight for others: Mado and Alexandre met just one hour before the results. They talked about everything but politics. Mado has always voted for the left-wing party. She doesn't know she just fell in love with an activist of the far-right party...

    2 nominations to the Moliere awards in 2017 in France: best author and best supporting actress !! 

    POLITIQUEMENT CORRECT Photo couple 1 (libre de droits (c)Christophe Vootz).jpg

  14. This is my first time to go to D2 Place and my friend suggests me to try this Japanese restaurant because the decoration is quite special.

    Sushi Geikan really impress me because of the decoration! It uses lots of paper artworks to decorate and it became a ‘feature wall’. It must be a ‘check point’ for this restaurant ; P

    We have chosen to sit ‘Tatami’ this time, such a new experience for me as Hong Kong seldom have these type of restaurant which provide tatami to customers.

    We have ordered a sashimi platter, there will be total 7 types of sashimi, and all of them are fresh!! One of the sashimi (I forgot its name) looks like a flower, beautiful!

    We also ordered two Running Noodles as well because we have never tried that before. After ‘running’ and mixing with the noodle sauce, fantastic! The noodles was so fresh!!

    Probably will go next time with my family J

    大年初二吃御膳 @今助日本料理
    * * * * * * * * * *

    新年伊始,大年初二跟隨家人出外走一趟,到了荃灣的D.PARK,已N年沒有踏足這地,商場翻身成為兒童專區,內裡有專賣小朋友和年青人商品的商舖、小型電動私家車、中庭空間設遊樂區「中央公園」和「鯨魚花園」等都充滿歡樂氣氛,真的很適合家長們帶小朋友來"放電"呀。

    20170129_195250.jpg
    進座後店員很快就為我們擺放好餐具、熱茶及餐牌

    說明是大年初二,各處食店當然是繼續休息,未有營業啦,難得D.PARK內有數個選擇,不外出"冒險"了,最終決定在今助落腳,晚上8時需要取票輪候呀~ 大約15分鐘後我們進座,同行家人喜歡烏冬鍋物,尤其冬天食用最佳。

    20170129_195220.jpg
    顧客大多是情侶、夫婦或年青家庭

    20170129_200146.jpg
    和紙燈飾和日系格局,舒服又光猛


    20170129_195301.jpg
     單點食物,冷熱烏冬和烏冬鍋

    20170129_195308.jpg
     御膳款式多而精彩

    20170129_195319.jpg
     愛肉食者有日式炸豬扒、滑蛋豬扒或赤味噌豬扒,
    右手邊更有鍋物御膳,家人很感興趣,可惜年初二那天暫停售賣呀

    20170129_195330.jpg


    20170129_195342.jpg
     四款熱辣辣的烏冬鍋膳配天婦羅、刺身或壽司,真的好適合寒溫下享用

    20170129_195359.jpg
     切合商場以兒童為主題,這裡有兩款Kid's menu

    20170129_195421.jpg
    刺身、丼和壽司,以這個定價,筆者會光顧另外的魚生專門店

    20170129_195433.jpg

    望著餐牌經過一輪腦交戰,三客心水定食是讚岐風素食冷烏冬迷你北海飯御膳、讚岐風素食冷烏冬迷你蒲燒鰻魚飯御膳及讚岐風溫泉蛋撈烏冬天婦羅壽司御膳,有飯有烏冬,感覺好豐富呀。

    20170129_202353.jpg
    讚岐風素食冷烏冬迷你北海飯御膳 HK$140元

    每客御膳都包括味噌酒粕湯、茶碗蒸、刺身併盤,先來是讚岐風素食冷烏冬迷你北海飯御膳HK$140,天氣寒冷先來一碗味噌酒粕湯,先看湯色已知材料份量十足,味噌味加入暖胃酒粕,濃郁而不過鹹,內裡有豆腐皮、蒟蒻、蔥花和豆腐,喝完後全身暖和,好舒服。

    茶碗蒸內傳來陣陣香濃冬菇味道,更有雞肉,蛋夠香滑,個人感覺質地過稀,可以做得紮實一點,鹹度偏重,質素平平。

    20170129_202512.jpg

    迷你刺身分別是三文魚、鱆紅魚和大甜蝦,前兩者厚度適中,鱆紅魚新鮮軟滑,魚味不弱,三文魚無筋啖啖肥美油潤,甜蝦爽甜舔滑,蝦腦甘香。

    20170129_202444.jpg

    北海丼內容包括熟三文魚肉、爽甜生帶子粒和油美三文魚籽,顏色亮麗,味道豐富, 最重要還是材料夠新鮮吧,配合溫熱的珍珠米,太滋味幸福了!

    冷烏冬一盆份量很多,面頭撒滿紫菜,賣相精美,在旁附設專用汁料,按個人喜好隨意加入柚子皮、蔥花、薑蓉和白芝麻粒,湯汁味道即時變得精彩多層次,選用幼身烏冬,爽滑煙韌又掛汁。

    20170129_203141.jpg
    讚岐風素食冷烏冬迷你蒲燒鰻魚飯御膳 HK$140元

    20170129_203156.jpg

    另外一款讚岐風素食冷烏冬迷你蒲燒鰻魚飯御膳 HK$140元, 配菜大致與北海丼無異,只是主食轉成迷你鰻魚丼,鰻魚肉質爽彈,不算肥美,份量亦小,幸好飯粒圓潤分明,拌勻甘甜醬油,香氣四溢,挽回分數。

    20170129_202932.jpg
    讚岐風溫泉蛋撈烏冬天婦羅壽司御膳HK$135元

    20170129_202917.jpg

    讚岐風溫泉蛋撈烏冬天婦羅壽司御膳HK$135元,大顆溫泉蛋 最為精彩,烏冬選用較粗身的種類,同樣彈牙爽滑,面層鋪滿天婦羅,芝麻 和紫菜條,戳穿黏滑的蛋黃呈鮮橙色,蛋味濃郁,烏冬底部墊有醬油,拌勻所有食材同吃, 口感和味道都好豐富,美味程度是可以幻想到的。

    20170129_203400.jpg

    五件壽司分別是三文魚、吞拿魚、帶子、鱆紅魚和鰻魚,喜歡壽司飯緊緻度拿捏得好,飯粒醋味適中,當中帶子厚肉鮮甜,好吃!

    御膳還附有天婦羅拼盤,包括蝦兩隻, 體積很大,蝦肉爽彈,惟蝦鮮味欠奉,冬菇,小青椒和番薯片各一件,外層炸漿若可薄一點更好,沾些加入白蘿蔔蓉的天婦羅汁,幸福呀!

    20170129_210535.jpg

    20170129_202551.jpg
    最開心還是可以與家人至親一起過節、遊玩和分享啊?

    這兒食物價格偏高,定食或御膳大致由135元至170元,額外加一收費。欣賞是食材豐富新鮮,質素平穩,給予顧客「吃得飽」的滿足,服務是正常水平,店員會定時為客人添熱茶,加上和風格局夠光猛,食客大多是年青家庭或情侶,未見高談闊論的嘈雜感,餐桌與餐桌之間保留充足空間, 若再來這個商場,應該會再度光顧哦。

    *加一服務費

  18. The last birthday celebration for J was at Bibo where we had a tour of its art installations before our dinner! We had been to Bibo before when it first opened two years ago and decided to revisit after we had a great chat with the restaurant group's sommelier about champagne when we dined at The Ocean a few months ago. J wanted to try more kinds of champagne and his birthday coincided with the last week of the month which is when the Art Tours are offered, so we decided to sign up for it. The Art Tours occurs every last Thursday of the month at 6:30pm with no costs and it was definitely interesting to learn about the many different artists on display in the restaurant. It lasted about an hour and we walked all around the restaurant (even up to the private dining room) before making our way back to main dining for the start of our meal.

    Coincidentally, we sat at the same table as last time right by the Invader wall.
    IMG_7260-1.jpg

    The Bernardaud plates designed by Prune Nourry and JR are still a prominent part of the table decor at Bibo. 
    IMG_7257-1.jpg

    After J chatted with the sommelier Wallace on what he was looking for, Wallace recommended the Franck Bonville Prestige Avize Grand Cru Brut NV Blanc de Blancs ($1370) for us to try. He recommended the use of wine glass instead of the usual champagne flute to maximize the aroma and taste of the champagne. 
    IMG_7320-1.jpg

    Food-wise, Bibo offers a 5 course tasting menu for $1100 but we decided to order a la carte instead for more flexibility. After placing our orders, a refreshing amuse bouche with apricot jelly and almond mousse arrived along with bread and butter (one of which was a seaweed butter!). 
    IMG_7281-1.jpg

    IMG_7285-1.jpg

    We were treated to this off-the-menu house smoked salmon which had a subtle smoky flavor and deliciously chewy texture to go with our champagne. 
    IMG_7291-1.jpg

    For appetizers, J went for the Le Pate En Croute ($290) with homemade terrine, foie gras from Les Landes, pistachio and pork belly. As opposed to the soft pate spread, the pate is baked in a crust and is a very "French" dish that may not be for everyone (the people next to us only took a few bites). 
    IMG_7293-1.jpg

    My Le Calamar ($250) with pan-fried squid, Hokkaido scallop, chorizo, bok choy and lemon dice was solid with very safe flavors but I thought the scallops could have been more raw while the dish could have used more acidity to make the tastes more interesting. 
    IMG_7296-1.jpg

    Moving onto mains, the Le Bar ($480) with pan-fried sea bass, cherry tomatoes, white asparagus and Jerusalem artichoke puree was nicely executed but again the flavors were pretty safe and tasted as expected. 
    IMG_7299-1.jpg

    I preferred the Le Homard Bleu Roti ($730) with roasted blue lobster and seaweed butter better which was served with seasonal vegetables, salted butter sauce and triple cooked fries as the flavors were on point and the portion can easily be shared between 2 people!
    IMG_7280-1.jpg

    IMG_7301-1.jpg

    IMG_7305-1.jpg

    IMG_7308-1.jpg

    IMG_7310-1.jpg

    Lastly, we had the La Fraise ($180) with fresh berries, yuzu cream, strawberry and ginger sauce, sesame tuiles and lychee sorbet to round off our meal and birthday celebration for J!

  19. Trip planning could be tiring and stressful especially for a family travelling with kids. For those in need for a short break and wanna save the hassle of planning a trip, it’s not necessary to fly off as Hong Kong has quite a few brilliant getaway choices to offer. Some popular ones are the rented houses and hotels in Cheung Chau, Mui Wo and Lamma Island, but rarely do people talk about Discovery Bay. 

    Here we came to Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong and enjoyed a night of staycation for the weekend. The hotel is located in Discovery Bay, a tranquil residential area on the Lantau Island, and is easily accessible by MTR with the free hotel shuttle bus pick-up at Sunny Bay station. It was a beautiful sunny day and when we stepped out from Sunny Bay station, we felt so relax as if we’re in another tropical country going on a sun’n beach trip! It’s so different from the “Hong Kong” we used to know!

    2

    Hotel shuttle bus stop is outside Sunny Bay station Exit A. It is available at around every 30 mins and only for hotel guests, so get your booking confirmation ready before getting on the bus. Alternatively, non-hotel guests may take public bus DB03P from Sunny Bay station as well.

    After a brief ride of 15-20mins, we arrived at the Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong!

    It's still plenty of time before standard check-in time, why not treating ourselves a feast to kickstart our getaway? Had a lunch buffet (HK$298/adult, HK$198/child) at the hotel's restaurant, Café bord de Mer & Lounge, which offers daily breakfast buffet, lunch & dinner buffets on every Friday - Sunday, and nightly dinner buffet throughout entire month of August. The current buffet is featuring dishes cooked with fruit ingredients and unlimited glasses of Red Bean Ice (紅荳冰) to beat the summer heat!

    Time to get our room after we're done with the lunch buffet. It was an Ocean Front Panoramic View Room on high floor. Wow wow wow!!! We were so astonished by the 180 degrees ocean view of South China Sea and the spacious room!! It's a genuine escape from the city life while falling asleep in a king-sized bed with such an ocean view!

    A little mention about the welcome basket that we really appreciated. It's not ordinary welcome fruits but a basket full of sweet & savoury snacks! Best for kids and adults who are not on diet! 

    39

    "You've arrived at another side of Hong Kong" printed on the key card sleeve, couldn't agree more.

    40

    Let's get out and explore the hotel and places nearby. The hotel offers a full range of recreational facilities for all ages. Spacious gym room with essential equipments for the sporty ones, playroom for family guests with kids, and the leisure hotel's must-have, swimming pool!

    45

    If you're kind of adventurous, drop by the recreation counter in the lobby to rent a bike and cycling around the neighbourhood.

    46

    The hotel is also renowned for its one-of-a-kind wedding venue with the sleek triangle White Chapel and the exquisite European tall ship The Bounty that are hardly found elsewhere in Hong Kong. The ship and the blue sky resembled a beautiful and classic scene like the picture we used to see on puzzles and postcard!

    These are all Ocean Front Panoramic View Rooms located.

    As the hotel is situated in a residential community, there are shops, restaurants and a supermarket just around the corner so don't panic if you forgot to bring something essential for your stay. Only if you remember to bring enough cash, haha...

    Same stunning ocean view can also be viewed from the town square right beside the hotel.

    It's dinner time when the sun went down. We again visited the Café bord de Mer & Lounge for the dinner buffet (HK$338/adult, HK$198/child) featuring BBQ skewers.

    Different sauces to season the skewers to your liking.

    Stayed awhile at the restaurant even we've finished our dinner just for the 9pm fireworks at Disneyland. Yes, we could see a little fireworks from outside the restaurant!

    Hotel lobby at night. When everyone has gone back to room, it shows another undisturbed charm.

    Good morning world!! Life would be perfect if we could wake up with such a breathtaking ocean view everyday...

    Breakfast buffet is always the best way to start a day and that's why we usually prefer to book accommodation with breakfast buffet included. :D The restaurant has a good spread of breakfast buffet with both Oriental and Western dishes. 

    You may DIY a set of Hong Kong styled breakie with congee, stir-fried noodles, a few pieces of Siu Mai and a Cha Siu Bao.

    71

    Plus a bowl of made-to-order soup noodle from the noodle station. There are choices of noodle like rice vermicelli, egg noodle and silver needle noodle (銀針粉) to choose from, and choices of ingredients like different types of mushroom, veggie, fish/beef/cuttlefish balls, and bean curd to custom make your perfect soup noodle. 

    73

    74

    And/Or have a set of American or Continental breakfast with eggs, sausages, hash brown, different kinds of bread and pancakes.

    72

    75

    I've never seen pancakes made by such a pancake machine!! What a great idea for the restaurant to provide fresh hot pancake without employing an extra staff at a pancake station! Haha... 

    76

    A breakfast could never be perfect (and not healthy enough) without fruits. And the satisfying breakfast put a beautiful end to our staycation.

    77

    Last but not least, don't forget to book your seats 1 day before check-out for the free hotel shuttle bus bringing you back to the Sunny Bay station as the buses around check-out time are always full! Huge thanks to all friendly staff in the hotel who have taken care of us and it was truly a great place to unwind ourselves. If you're interested in taking a break or just spending a day with scrumptious buffet at Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong, take a look at their website where you will find different promotions and room packages on offer: http://www.aubergediscoverybay.com

    Hi everyone, thanks a lot for being with me and my little blog through these years. I have a bad news and a good news for you all!

    This blog will be shut down. I will keep all the posts here, but there will be no update and no maintenance since now.

    Good news is, I have already started a new blog which have a new and nicer layout. The new blog is no longer about food. I have too many stories from my trips around the world to be shared with you! Of course, food and drink will be one part of my personal journey, but you will find a fresher and more interesting site there.

  21. While we stepped into the new page of 2016, I believe it was still worthwhile to do a little throw-back to one of the biggest musical event last year by Hennessy because it's coming along this year!

    Since its founding in 1765, Hennessy has been driven to create the world's best cognacs. In this continuing quest for excellence, seven generations of the Fillioux family have been Master Blenders at Hennessy, thereby ensuring the transmission of this precious savoir-faire from one generation to another.

    Hennessy was celebrating its 250th anniversary celebration last year. Despite plans to celebrate this anniversary, its annual music-fest “Hennessy Artistry” – an innovative musical platform- was set to be a more unique celebration of the relationship between Music and the Hennessy brand as it took a new turn to re-emphasize Hennessy’s love for music hence, the theme for last year’s celebration; “Hennessy loves Music”. The event was star-studded and attended by Peter Okoye, Falz, Toni Tones, Ehiz, DJ Lambo, Saeon, Emmanuel Ikubese and more.

    The creation of Hennessy Artistry Halo is based on the philosophy of “The Global Art of Mixing”; essentially the seamless blending of East & West. This is exemplified not only through the varied genres of music and the synthesis of top talents and emerging artistes.

    Previous Hennessy Artistry headliners include Jesse Jagz, Nneka, Cobhams, Kas, Jude “MI” Abaga, Banky W, Sir Shina Peters, Tiwa Savage, Ice Prince, El Dee, Bez, Wizkid, 2Face and other notable Nigerian acts.

    Hennessy Artistry is an innovative musical platform, launched worldwide by Hennessy in 2006 to celebrate the vibrant multiculturalism of different genres.
