Last week, I visited The Joomak at Harbour City again to sample some of their new winter creations. Introduced with a series of warm Korean-style hotpot, there are two hotpot soup bases to choose including a Ginseng Chicken soup and a Vegan Prickly Pear Carbonara soup.

The prickly pear carbonara soup base is basically soy milk colored with prickly pear, not only is it nutrition-packed, it is also made with vegan cheese that makes it perfect for vegetarian. The soup base is very creamy and hearty, not too heavy and of course, very rich in soybean flavor.

The hotpot comes with Hanwoo beef platter and a vegetarian platter, including a big bundle of white fungus over the thinly sliced beef, kimchi cuttlefish and dace fish pastes; kale, pumpkin, purple potato and corn. My favourites are the crunchy crystalline iceplant as well as the soya knot that boils amazingly silky in the soup.

In addition, we opt for a vegan cheese seaweed rice, which you will add into the remaining soup base and cook until it turns risotto-like.

I also loved the deep-fried Korean Ginseng with a hint of bitterness, whilst a soothing cup of turmeric latte is particularly remarkable, made with turmeric, cinnamon, ginger juice and almond milk.

WAALAH! Literally, this is the name of an obscure cafe in Causeway Bay. With an open door setting and a spacious, euro street style environment, we come in last minute during the Happy Hour time, with a glass of white wine. Having said that, I actually ordered a lychee lemongrass refresher, which tastes amazing!

Cafe Culture Remixed

On the all day menu, there are starters and big dishes to share. We opt for a Lollipork, which is basically pork belly skewer, grilled perfectly juicy with a crunchy honey hoisin coating. Popcorn chicken is also very crunchy and batter fried that comes with a sweet chili sauce.

A signature would be WAA! Mixed Grill, which includes rib eye steak with herby butter on the side, Australian pork shoulder, chicken breast, grilled sausages and crispy bacon. My favourite is the steak fajita, served on a hot skillet with sweet pepper, onion paprika, that also comes with typical guacamole, tomato salsa, sour cream and warm flour tortilla.

Opened lately in Wan Chai QRE Plaza, Zither Garden is a Pekineses/Chinese restaurant specialises in making one of the most authentic roasted Peking ducks in town. It is set in a modern and chic environment, with marble walls and an open kitchen showcasing the roast oven and the making of Chinese pastries.

The list of drinks on the menu are plentiful. Such as chinese barley water, sweetcorn juices, homemade sour plum juices and many other fresh fruit juices and special Chinese brewed tea.

Rose Lychee Tea

For our starters, we have Wuxi fried eel, pork trotters cured meat and drunken chicken. The fried eel is incredibly crunchy with a sweet and tangy sticky sauce, whilst the drunken chicken is very tender with a strong Huadiao wine flavor.

The signature roasted peking duck is exceptionally juicy and crispy, because it is first air-dried, frozen, and then undergoes a second air-dry process before being roasted in the oven. The Chef will carve around 10 pieces of duck skin, and the rest are around 108 pieces of duck meat with skin.

Served with cucumber, leeks, honeydew melon and ordinary sweet bean sauce; they also provide us with a homemade honey plum sauce and caster sugar. The duck skin is so delicious when dipped in caster sugar.

Other mains such as a Shanghai soup with beancurd knots, salted ham and bamboo shoots; honey ham & lotus seed wrapped in fluffy lotus bun; also an Eight Treasure braised duck stuffed with sticky and absolutely flavorful glutinous rice.

The tossed noodle is also fragrant but a bit too soft for my liking, while the steamed xiao long bao has a relatively thick wrapper. After all, the roasted Peking duck is very remarkable and worthy considering it is just $300HKD for five catty.

隔咗一排,終於有機會返返黎我好鍾意既一間梳乎厘班戟店 am.pm!今次揀咗中午黎,諗住會人少啲自然燈光又靚啲。點知原來已經好多人企哂係門口等班戟啦!等呀等…出面放咗一隻招財公仔係度,好得意!

今期出咗四款新味道,全部都係老闆嘔心瀝血嘅作品。除咗原味梳乎厘之外,有士多啤梨白朱古力、提拉米蘇、抹茶,同焦糖燉蛋味。士多啤梨白朱古力嘅醬有明顯嘅士多啤梨味,食落似食緊士多啤梨百力滋嘅味道,帶微微酸,可見有少許果肉,但白朱古力味可以更明顯;而提拉米蘇嘅醬就用上忌廉芝士,咖啡粉,冇落酒做成。當然,兩者嘅班戟底同原味一樣,介乎鬆軟厚實之間,帶有好香嘅蛋香,似港式雞蛋仔嘅味道,亦都係我鍾意佢地嘅地方。

不過,我最鍾意同極力推介嘅就係呢個「炎燒布丁梳乎厘」啦!面頭鋪上砂糖,用火槍燒過,形成一層脆身嘅焦糖。配上自家制嘅吉士醬,無可否認我覺得真係非常好食!當然唔少得 3.7牛奶雪糕同我最愛嘅黑芝麻軟雪糕啦!

Yixin is a family-run restaurant where it was originally located in North Point. Moving here and there until settled in Wan Chai, the restaurant continues serving a few Shun Tak and classic Cantonese dishes. We have pre-ordered a few signature dishes while finalizing our menu.

One signature dish is the Pipa duck, roasted perfectly juicy and tender with the skin that crisp up on point. The barbecue pork is amazingly juicy as well, not too fatty but I like a more sweeter honey glaze.

Goldenly deep-fried prawn toast follows, thick and crunchy, the prawn is exceptionally large in size! I also loved the stir-fried egg white with crabmeat and milk, which is soft, fluffy, and has a rich milk aftertaste.

Another signature is the smoked pomfret. The fish is prepared like smoked salmon, but is hot-smoked with wood chips and house special sauce. The colour is naturally made from carrot juice and the smoky flavor is so rich indeed.

Moved from Sai Ying Pun to Causeway Bay, Seoulmate Cafe still keeps its courtyard and wooden swing at the outdoor terrace behind its new location. The Korean cafe feels pretty homey, serving up unique food and drink items with their usual Korean flavor.

The Menu
餐牌
The list of new appetizers on the menu includes a beef carpaccio, which I believe they have used Korean beef and presented in an Italian way. The beef flavor could be stronger while topped with arugula, sliced onion and croutons. Another is a sharing portion 10 inches thin crust pizza, with a very crunchy edges, tomato sauce, melted cheese and chopped beef marinated in bulgogi sauce.

A popular dish on the menu is a bibimbap with smoked salmon and black truffle. The lava egg is not runny but the rice is nice to toss with carrot and cucumber shreds, pumpkin puree, nori and most importantly, the flavorful, spicy and delicious bibimbap sauce.

Eventually I’m so looking forward to this bingsu because it is filled with a deliberate amount of oreo cookie crumbs. And seriously, it’s full of oreo and mini marshmallow, a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and the ice base is very rich in chocolate flavor.

Settled at the buzzing Harbour City inside LCX, it is the Korean bistro and restaurant, also the first overseas branch of The Joomak. It has a stunning harbour view with an edgy interior design, along with K-pop background music, it serves some Korean fusion cuisine.

One of the restaurant signatures and must-have would be a Mate Tea 4C°C Noodle. It is basically thin soba noodle served with assorted sides including sliced cucumber, kimchi, Korean pear and a soft boiled egg; they also offer choices of meat (pork or beef) to vegetarian. Served aside a herb and yuzu sauce, it is sharp-flavored but very palatable.

The menu offers a good selection of Korean fried chicken, and most of them comes with an unbelievable dressing. Such as an avocado and lime fried chicken, the sauce is thick and creamy with a hint of tanginess from the lime. The deboned chicken meat is juicy on the inside and crunchy on the outside, thickly battered and sprinkled with a particularly flavoursome cheese powder.

Self-grilled angus ribeye is another recommended choice. Served aside raw shiitake mushrooms, onion rings and cabbage, there are a few pieces of mozzarella for us to melt on the ribeye. The Angus ribeye is sizzled on the cast iron plate, to your desire doneness, it is indeed succulent and mouthwatering.

Finally, a tiramisu with Movenpick tiramisu ice cream, ladyfingers and coffee is very satisfying. I also loved the fresh fruits yuzu soda made with that smoky effect.

One of my favourite desserts in Bangkok is probably a mango sticky rice shaved ice. And lately, a new dessert shop opened in Argyle Centre, Mongkok, happens to create a very similar version.

Chatuchak Shave Ice

Chatuchak Menu
餐牌
They offer mainly three shaved ice flavors including durian sticky rice and Thai milk tea, but mango sticky rice flavor is surely the most popular order here.
Consist of sticky rice topped with mango shaved ice, chopped mango and mango sauce; the coconut cream on top is amazingly thick and creamy, which melts perfectly into the shaved ice.

The serving of sticky rice at the bottom is also warm and generous, whilst the crispy rice sprinkled over is a bit hard to chew.

 There are also a list of drinks including milkshake, soda and their home brewed Thai milk tea, and we opt for a Tom Yum Gung soda that is merely spicy but refreshing.

Returning to this sophisticated high ceiling and open space at WOOBAR, we are having an afternoon treat with plenty of Shanghainese elements. This new afternoon tea set “Yeh!

It has been a while since I had a traditional French crepe.
Coming to Odelice! on Landale street in Wan Chai, it is a casual restaurant and cafe with a cosy and welcoming ambience. Their menu serves a variety of authentic French dishes, including a selection of salad and pasta dishes, also French mussels, beef tenderloin, galettes and crepes.

Starting from the a la carte menu, we enjoy so much on the beef tartare served with toasted rye bread. The raw beef has been finely chopped and mixed with onions, capers, ground pepper and Worcestershire sauce, topped with a raw egg yolk for a fresh and complex flavor, definitely scrumptious.

We started off with a red prawn linguine! The pasta sauce is phenomenal made by blending together prawn shells and the rest of its oil, giving a rich and intense prawn flavor. The linguine pasta is made excellently al dente, cooked nicely with cherry tomatoes and sliced button mushrooms, whilst the red prawn itself is super large in size and very meaty.

While the aftertaste from the red prawn is remarkably delicious, another signature at BRICK LANE impresses me even more – Beer Can Chicken! Roasted over a beer can, the steam from the beer cooks the inside of the whole chicken, which makes it juicy and succulent.

The rice has been pretty well flavored with “furikake”, a kind of Japanese rice seasoning, pan-seared and stuffed with tender char siu, arugula, caramelized onion and a runny fried egg, despite the barbecue sauce is a tad too sweet for my liking.

A green tea chocolate fountain with marshmallow lollies, green tea cheese cake, daifuku with red bean filling, half-baked cheese tart; some other favourites are Japanese white peach pudding, homemade warabimochi and surely the huge varieties of Movenpick ice cream. Mango & passion fruit, maple walnut, blueberry cheesecake, lemon & lime; fresh fruit juices are served during the meal as a great refreshment too.

Just a few months ago, the popular Portuguese restaurant Casa Lisboa has reopened in Central with a brand new image and concept of “contemporary Portuguese cuisine”. It is basically an idea of reinventing traditional dishes starting from the cook techniques and its presentation, using fresh ingredients to bring old and new flavors together to the table.
I am so excited to try out the pumped-out Portugues brunch on the weekday, which includes a welcome couvert, a few starters for sharing, a main and dessert, in a bright and modern, relaxing but a bit packed environment.

Casa Lisboa Gastronomia Portuguesa

Portuguese Brunch Menu

House Marinated Portuguese Olives & Pate with Bread
Beginning with a cold crab salad with toast, it is in fact a delicious mix of poached crabmeat, mayonnaise, onion and celery. There are also beetroot salad with chopped carrot, crumbled goat cheese with honey vinaigrette; a cold Gazpacho; and grilled juicy octopus in garlic, coriander and green wine complementing the rich sauce.

Alongside, the deep-fried codfish cakes are made beautifully golden brown with an excellent meaty “Bacalhau” filling, as well as the plumpy clams that have been cooked in a moreish and thick tomato sauce, incredibly rich and flavorful.

One couldn’t leave Casa Lisboa without trying their signature suckling pig dish. It comes with a chourico baked rice, some chips and a homemade gravy; the suckling pig is marinated in traditional Bairrada style and grilled for three hours, very succulent with a perfect crackling skin, impressive!

A new feature on the menu is a Portuguese sandwich, or burger, looked super cheesy and packed with flavoursome roast beef, pork belly, and a fried egg on top, despite the house sauce is a bit too salty for my liking.

For dessert, it is a conventional serradura pudding made with layers of fine biscuit crumbs and delicate smooth cream; whilst I adore the refreshing pineapple, vanilla and pistachio sponge ravioli with a strong alcohol aftertaste!

十月一日入到黎長洲,除左同屋企人慶團圓做節,順便去尋找一啲隱世喺長洲嘅小店。
位於新興海旁道嘅「在水一坊」,由碼頭一出左手邊一直行就會見到。小店嘅名好得意,亦同海似乎有一點關係。

呢度賣嘅唔再只係甜品小食,亦有好多手工啤酒同飲品俾你慢慢揀。天氣熱,就坐咗係靠窗邊位置。一邊感受陽光,一邊涼下冷氣,加上店內唔多人,地方闊落,非常爽喔!

等咗20分鐘,即叫即製嘅窩夫終於到啦!上面有紫薯蓉同忌廉,拌一球雪尼拿雪糕。
雪糕方面唔需要太介懷,反而值得一提嘅係用咗低脂,低卡路里嘅忌廉,好滑 ; 紫薯蓉憑顏色就知係堅紫薯,甜度適中,而且唔會有色素。重點係窩夫底加了一丁點鹽調味,外脆內軟,蛋香足夠,熱辣辣好好食,值得推介!

叫咗一杯荔枝熱情果梳打,味道一啲都唔假。雖然明知係用咗荔枝糖醬同熱情果汁做成,但唔會假得黎死甜,又唔會大多冰,反而好清新解渴!

另外叫咗一杯熱嘅朱古力拿鐵,表面嘅氣泡好美麗,咖啡杯都非常別緻,好窩心好溫暖。

Coming back to Dining at Murasaki, we are not just having a feast for the eyes but also a brand new dessert menu for the season. Still feeling very beautiful and intimate in this elegant setting, we are set at the main dining area alongside a great attentive service.

Dining at Murasaki
First to introduce is our favourite pick, Charcoal Crumble. It combines passion fruit and banana sorbet, in between with a fragrant pandan cream, coconut foam and charcoal crumbles on top. The presentation is utmost perfection with that thick and heavy bottom plate.

A corn cheese is interestingly made in a real corn shape, but it is actually a kumquat sorbet with a salty coconut ice, rum caramel sauce and some candied nuts including pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. It is a vegan dessert.

A big plate of macadamia nuts sponge cake with sweet and salty miso gelato comes next, whilst we  like the curry rice combo better. The flavor of the curry ice cream is basically a sweet version of your Japanese curry rice sauce, but with a hint of coconut flavor, served aside a mango puree and crispy rice.

Macadamia Nuts & Sweet Miso
Macadamia nuts fennel sponge, rum, cinnamon agar, raspberry rose jam, coffee cream, chocolate sauce, sweet miso gelato with cucumber cube
