The first time I had chocolate tea was at Shortbread Teas and I loved it because of the addictive chocolate taste.
Ever since they closed down, I couldn't find a tea to replace it until I discovered TESCO finest chocolate tea.
There are 40 tea bags inside and the cocoa taste is lovely and strong.
This is definitely my favourite tea as well as Earl Grey and Breakfast tea.

These Sweet & Sticky BBQ Rib Racks from TESCO were surprisingly good.
You can put them in the microwave or oven.
I put them in the microwave because it seemed easier as you just pierce the plastic and put it in the microwave.
The texture of the meat was surprisingly tender and came off the bones easily however the taste lacked a vinegary and smoky punch, it was just sweet.

I was slightly disappointed with this Double chocolate gateau from Tescos as it was a bit too rich because of the sickly sweet chocolate sauce in the middle.

It is best to remove the plastic when it is still frozen so that it won't be so messy when it is de-thawed.'

I thought it was a joke when my friend told me there was a Tobasco burger at McDonalds.
Went to my nearest McDonalds and it was true, not only was there a burger but there was softserve with spicy fudge sauce and shake shake fries with spicy seasoning Tabasco sauce.

I decided to try the Fries with spicy seasoning:
It was very spicy as expected but I liked it because it was punchy and the spiciness wasn't long lasting.
The only let down was that the fries were overdone, hard and dry otherwise it would have tasted much nicer.

Having tried DOLL Hello Kitty noodles and finding edible Hello Kitties inside, I decided to get the TRANSFORMERS one to see what edible Transformers would look like.
The flavour was also unique because this is the only tomato flavour that I know of in the DOLL series.
[I made the cup noodles spin using a fidget spinner]


Well, I must say I was quite disappointed because you don't get any edible Transformers but you get a sticker.
The broth tasted like Weight watchers tomato sauce.

Was given a packet of Nissin Demae Ramen Bar Noodle Aka Tonkotsu Flavour Instant Noodle 出前一丁棒丁麵 from a friend.

IMG_20170806_150821.jpg


IMG_20170806_150827.jpg
IMG_20170806_150835.jpg

Inside, there is a plastic tray which protects the noodle from breakage with two sachets of broth powder.
IMG_20170806_185924.jpg

The instructions instruct you to boil the noodles and broth separately by adding the broth powder to the bowl.

I was quite impressed by these noodles because the broth was thick just like the broths you get at ramen joints.
The spicy sauce was very hot so I only used half a sachet.

I love trying new things so I was really excited about this Hokkaido ZomRamen because the noodles and broth are blue according to the Hong Kong distributor [Booth 1D-A30 by Red Gold HK 獨家食品香港總經銷] at the 2017 HKTDC Food exhibition.

IMG_20170812_183001.jpg

Inside the pack, there is a sachet of liquid sauce, blue noodles and a leaflet.

IMG_20170812_154018.jpg

It is interesting that the broth sachet is blue liquid and not the usual powder.
IMG_20170812_154436.jpg

Anyway, to cook, you have to use 600ml of water which I thought was too much at first but then the noodles do absorb the water.

VID_20170812_15520_2411.jpg
IMG_20170812_155219.jpg

After they become soft, you add the blue concentrated broth liquid which I tried and it was evidently quite strong so it comes out right when added to the water.

20728832_1414705831977753_868369263953707247_o.jpg

With its unusual blue appearance it actually tastes like any other ramen.
IMG_20170812_160143.jpg

There was a strong alkaline smell when I was cooking it but you can't taste it when you eat it.

I am so glad I tried Ricci's Bikkies Cinnamon sugar from the 2017 HKTDC Food exhibition distributed by Red Gold HK 獨家食品香港總經銷 at Booth 1D-A30.

Pita bread is normally soft and eaten with dips like hummus etc but this is crisp and sweet with cinnamon and sugar.
I found them really addictive and delicious because I love cinnamon and sugar.
The texture is quite different because they are totally crispy which make them ideal served with icecream but now I want to try them with sweet hummus from the UK.
IMG_20170810_194527.jpg
There is a close up so you can see they really are pita breads!

Recently discovered this Instant yoghurt drink called Yogur Train at the food expo because of the colorful packaging.
There are many flavours: original, banana, mango and cheese.

IMG_20170727_155927.jpg

Frankly the cheese yoghurt sounds strange but then I haven't tried it.

I got the original which comes in a box of six sachets.

IMG_20170806_151417.jpg
IMG_20170806_151410.jpg

The instant yoghurt drinks are made by mixing 120ml of mix with one sachet of Yogur Train.
IMG_20170806_151053.jpg

The milk normally comes in 2xx ml cartons so it was a bit troublesome to measure out half so I decided to mix a whole carton and a sachet which turned out really good and the sweetness was just right.

As a food lover, I found out about Cheeky Boy Sauces from Instagram and was honoured to try their tantalizing saucy sauces.

Cheeky Boy Sauces are independent producers of a range of fresh tasting, delicious, all natural sauces and dips created by an adventurer and a food lover, and are beautifully made in Britain.[quoted from their website.]

At the moment they have three stylish sauces:

HRH sauce, L!MEY and Berlin49.

19227853_760035197502326_8425125143390453760_n.jpg

For more details and pairings please see:
http://cheekyboysauces.com/sauces/

Having tried all three, I loved them because they are different and complex.
+++++++++
To summarize HRH sauce is gingery.
19380062_1824835634499098_1973479842640822272_n.jpg
I felt that it paired well with Asian food especially Hainan chicken because you normally get ginger puree sauce with it and HRH is much better since it has more dimension to it.
+++++++++
L!MEY is very refreshingly limey and great pairing with greasy fatty meats like roast suckling pig!!!!

L!MEY at MongKok!!
19424875_440130796359529_2519924000520404992_n.jpg

+++++++++
Berlin49 was actually quite complex, there was a BBQ smell when you opened the bottle but when you actually taste it, there is a spicy curry kick followed by a fiery smokey chili aftertaste that lingers shortly.
It was definitely good paired with meats, fried stuff that has a flour or some form of coating that needs something strong and punchy.
19379313_230855317407655_3734755899625963520_n.jpg

You always get a sachet of sauce inside Potnoodle so it is definitely legit to add sauce to it.
I decided to be #cheeky and purposely chose Cheeky Boy Sauces' BERLIN49 for Bombay Bad Boy which made the curry taste more intense because the sauce has a smokey curry taste to it.
The sachet of hot sauce they give you in the pot noodles are mega hot so I advise trying it before putting it in.
20246026_1422511967783844_4441969188429569117_n.jpg
As with all sauces, I believe you should try and see what it tastes like before using it for best results.

#THANKYOU for all the fun #cheekyboysauces

Tried Nissin Cup Noodles Rich Abalone & Oyster Stew Flavour which is part of their luxury range launched for Cup Noodle’s 45th anniversary.


The Rich Abalone & Oyster Stew Flavour tasted like noodles in a rich Chinese oyster sauce but nicer and it had pieces of oyster mushrooms and black fungas.

The thing I didn't like was how oily my lips were after eating it and the broth became like gel when it cooled down.

Other flavours in this series are: Luxury Shark Fin cupnoodle and Softshell Turtle cupnoodle which were both really good.

As well as a restaurant foodie, I am addicted to cup noodles and instant noodles.
Came across these noodles by Taiwanese celebrity star ShuQi which are noodles tossed in sauce.
There are two flavours: Sichuan noodles or Scallion noodles.

IMG_20170716_153116.jpg

IMG_20170716_153146.jpg

Tried both and they were fantastic because you get quality noodles that are served in restaurants and not unhealthy typical instant noodles.

They are too easy to cook, boil until the desired softness and toss the noodles with the sauce provided and they are ready to eat.
IMG_20170716_154509.jpg

Personally I preferred the scallion but the Sichuan one is quite spicy yet fragrant.
It is good how the chili seasoning is in a separate sachet.

I love black cherries so when Hartley's launched the NEW Black Cherry Jelly, I got my hands on some from the supermarket.

IMG_20170624_140328.jpg

IMG_20170624_180217.jpg

You make them in the normal way by adding boiling water and stirring it until it dissolves then refrigerating it.

You either love or hate durian.
In my case, I love durian but they are big and difficult to open that I can never finish a whole one to myself.
Discovered these cute mini durians so I got one for fun.

IMG_20170620_214314.jpg

It took a few days to ripe and it cracked open naturally so I opened it effortlessly.
IMG_20170624_220929.jpg
IMG_20170624_220446.jpg
IMG_20170624_221317.jpg

The durian meat was sweet and delicate so I loved it but the one I got wasn't developed properly so it only had two sides with flesh inside.

Previously tried the Festive Bakewells by Mr Kipling and they were addictive so this time I got the Trifle bakewells.

IMG_20170618_215727_1.jpg


The Trifle bakewell has a layer of raspberry and plum jam topped with custard topping.
IMG_20170618_215700.jpg

At first, it was quite sweet but then you get accustomed to it and the custard topping texture was a bit sugary like icing.
IMG_20170618_215941.jpg

IMG_20170618_220122.jpg

There is a slight almond aftertaste and these are great with tea or coffee but I think tea is better.
