I’m sure everything knows there’s a Line Cafe in Seoul, Korea. Situated within Sinsa-dong at Gangnam area, this 3-storey shop is more than just the Line mobile app. It has items such as stationery, pillows, soft toys, where also includes a basement cafe. that wins most of Line’s fans. It features French macarons, lattes, smoothies and ice cream with Line’s characters.

We got a Brown and Cony ice cream in cups, both come with a mini cookie on top. The soft ice cream is not only cute for the look, it tastes surprisingly smooth and milky.

I’m hoping to come back again and try out their cake rolls and cream latte!!!

Myth Jokbal has been on my Seoul-to-eat-list for years. It is a jokbal specialist restaurant that first opened its door since 1987. We come to Hongdae branch expecting a long queue, but surprisingly we instantly have a table for 3 at around 8pm.

They basically serve one thing only, the braised pork knuckles. There are 2 types on the menu, original and another with extra garlic on top.

Believe me, the portion is huge. No word can describe preciously how fatty, juicy, tender it is. I also like the sauces being served along including soy sauce, chili miso paste and a sweet and chili one.

To go with our pork knuckles, we have a Korean rice balls which has been deliberately flavored with sesame oil, seaweed and flying fish roe. There are also salad that comes along, with black olives, almonds and tangy vinaigrette; side dishes, as well as a spicy hotpot for your noodles.

Give Miss Pork Knuckle a try, and you will love it!

After getting some oyster pancakes, I go further to explore more around Tsuen Wan.

At the beginning, I am so excited to try the familiarized taro egg waffle with honey star cereal at More Eggettes. But sadly it was no longer available, so I go for a chocolate flavor instead.

It is made fresh on a waffle iron upon order. Piping hot, the egg waffle is surely perfect with an extra crunchiness, crispy edges, aromatic custard taste, and gooey center filled with melted chocolate chips and adorably-looking honey star cereal.

I admit that I am getting too many egg waffles these days. But seriously, who could resist this gorgeous innovation that captures most of our hearts, from the young to old generations.

Around this area of Tsuen Wan, it is a street food staple for many locals and those who live around here. You can basically find tasty varieties of stinky tofu, fish balls on a stick, tofu pudding, Taiwanese bubble teas and egg puffs etc.

HTH is one of the popular food stands in the fact that I have been so addicted to oyster pancakes and Cantonese rice noodle rolls recently, I come all the way mainly for their highly raved oyster cake.

The cake is pan-fried in Teochew style, with quite a number of small oysters which I found some of them left whole and some chopped. Fritter-like, it has crispy edges but too thick and chewy for my liking. The lady also offers us some additional condiments including Thai chili sauce and fish sauce, but we only ask for some coriander.

In comparison, the Cantonese pan-fried rice noodle rolls impresses very much with an appetizing color from the rich soy sauce, chewy and soft texture, stir fried with tiny dried shrimps and spring onion. It is so delicious!

Known for its true taste of Argentina, Gaucho in Hong Kong has offered a valuable lunch set recently. The “Feel Good” menu is a healthy 3-course menu that worths less than 500 calories, whereas the “Feel Great” menu features slightly more indulging choices. I guess ladies will be more likely to go for the former one. Just like me!

We are delivered a small platter of sourdough and Brazilian cheese bread. There is a smear of salted butter and some sauces that come alongside. The cheese bread is a true wonder, warm to touch, crispy on the outside and cheesy and soft on the inside.

Starting with a 3-course “Feel Great” menu and a 2-course “Feel Good” menu, the cheese empanada comes first. This stuffed bread is usually fried but now is baked golden brown, made with puff pastry dough folding over a mixture of cheese and onion. The filling is amazingly cheesy and creamy.

To follow, we have a confit duck leg and a rump steak for our mains. Given the duck leg is bathed in its own fat and slow cooked, it is fall-of-the-bone tender, not fatty, well-browned and crispy skin, with a particularly delicious hoisin and orange glaze. The rump steak, is a muscular part taken from the lower back of the cattle. We ask to serve medium rare which is grilled like an everyday steak. It is a little gamey, rough but very flavorful as compare to other cuts.

While I am completely seduced by the decent presentation of the mango mousse with coconut tuile, it is however too firm in texture considering it as a mousse that should be fluffy and light.

Fortunately, the eton mess doesn’t disappoint with sweet, crunchy meringues topped with whipped cream and a touch of ordinary mixed berries compote.

After all, Gaucho is surely one of those elegant restaurants I have been in Hong Kong, with nice services and high quality food.

There are a lot of East meet West creations these days in Hong Kong, and one shouldn’t be missed is this Mantou burger, served by The Beef & Leaf in Argyle Center, aka “旺中”.

In this small area of Argyle Center, there are plenty of food to choose from such as egg waffle, Taiwanese bubble drinks, Japanese hand rolls and the particularly impressive 12″ long waffle with oreo, purple sweet potato, durian and many more! One recent popular addition would be The Beef & Leaf who sells hand-sized burgers using typical Chinese steamed bun.

The burger is smaller than your regular burger, soft and fluffy mantou, fairly juicy beef patty stuffed with a wonderfully soft boiled egg. The melted cheddar cheese reminds me of McDonald’s hamburger, which is alright, but I like the mustard aioli that has added great flavor to the bao.

I would want to come back and try the satay burger, mango burger and their amazing house special drinks!

It doesn’t matter if you call it egg waffles, eggettes, or ‘gai dan zai’, it is always the most popular snack on-the-go in Hong Kong. Chewy, gooey on the inside, crispy on the outside; the original captured most of our hearts.

At Sumore, this traditional egg waffle is given a twist, serving four different flavors from original, chocolate, green tea to coffee, plus a wide variety of additional fillings such as chocolate chips, red bean, honey, black sesame and M&M’s etc. Seriously?

Need I say more? I’m definitely going for oreo filling in my original egg waffle. Freshly made from the egg waffle machine, hot and crispy, I especially like how it gets a bit crunchy on the edge after cooling. The center is filled with a generous serving of crushed oreo which is truly delectable.

Besides, we have also tried the coffee-flavored Hong Kong style waffle. You can tell it is extremely thick and sandwiched with loads of caramel in the middle.

Imagine the egg waffle can easily feed two people for just $20HKD, I guess it’s well worth coming a bit far to Yuen Long for a try!

That afternoon, my friend and I was supposed to visit Mido Cafe in Yau Ma Tei. We did not realize it was under construction and was closed until March. So we walked around the area and reached this secret upstairs space in Shanghai Street with an unusual name called “Mum’s not home”.

With plenty of plants, clothes and old-fashioned furnitures, this hangout is minimal but homey. It is like a collection of art pieces, musics and fashions.

The menu consists of drinks and cakes served homemade from their kitchen. We ordered a galaxy-coloured pineapple soda, a sweet purple potato milk and a piece of durian cheesecake.

The blue color comes from butterfly pea, which does not contribute to the flavor, whilst the soda itself is pretty bland. A better one is the purple potato latte served cold in a huge, silver cup, size like a ramen bowl. And my friend also liked their durian cheesecake, a very rich and creamy cheesecake accentuated with the delicate aroma of durian.

Although I personally don’t feel comfortable sitting in this small space, but my friend do!

What is The Coffee Academics? True to its name, it is a leading specialty coffee brand from Hong Kong where has its own coffee school, coffee roasting facility, whose brand has already been expanded outside of Hong Kong to Singapore and Shanghai. The principle of sourcing the best Arabica coffee beans globally continue to bring us some single origin from all around the world including Africa, Columbia, Kenya etc., as well as the not-to-be-missed House Blend, which is a light mixture of more than one kind of coffee beans.

At the Morrison branch, we come to learn about the unique characteristics of four single origin coffees at a mini cupping class, starting from aroma, acidity, sweetness, flavors to body. We also get to know the difference of adding whole milk at 60-65C, how the lactose gives its natural sweetness and why other milks such as soymilk and almond milk cannot act the same due to their low sugar, low fat features.

Meanwhile, you can also experience the Asia’s first Coffee in a Cone and some signature coffees at the Pop-Up By The Coffee Academics @The ONE, or at Lan Kwai Fong branch.

The Coffee in a Cone is referred as the “Most Instagrammed Coffee in the World”, showcasing a beautiful latte art, a chocolate coated waffle cone to prevent it from getting soggy.
The latte macchiato with coconut sugar and panda is also very delicious and warm to the heart!

Located on Observatory Road in TST, The Drunken Pot is a fashionable backdrop offering a new selection of hot pot dishes and delicacies.

Arriving at the bar, we first order a mocktail from their non-alcoholic drink list. The Asia Punch features a refreshing ginger ale-based with fresh lychee, lychee syrup, and my favourite fresh mint. It is very satisfying.

Instead of the signature Drunken Pot that has five different soup bases, we go for a choice of four featuring black truffle, pork bone, spicy and peppery pork stomach with pickled mustard soup. First, the black truffle is amazingly rich and creamy laced with a rich aroma of truffle; pork bone is a regular choice among all while the Sichuan-style one is undoubtedly spicy.

The premium sliced Angus beef chuck is apparently the star of the meal. Served hanging above a bed of ice cubes, the thin beef slices are incredibly marbled for a tender and beefy flavor. The flavor of black truffle from the shrimp and crabmeat dumplings aren’t very pronounced, while the bundle of veggies are simply a fancier display of including cabbage, choy sum, cherry tomatoes, pumpkin and brussel sprouts. Both the Happy Penguin cuttlefish ball and awkwardly-looking squid ink sausages are unfortunately lacking a bit flavor, yet the cute little penguin is truly an eye-candy serving over the ice while the latter one reminds me of our traditional Chinese preserved sausages.

Nonetheless, I really like the crispy fish skin deep fried and sprinkled with a spicy chili powder, as well as the freshly handmade beancurd roll which is crunchy and served with a sweet and sour dip. The same sauce is also served aside the Chinese dough that is stuffed with prawn paste and dressed with black truffle sauce on top, golden, chewy, and crunchy.

Last but not the least, the bi-coloured xiao long bao however do not impress us much as they all taste very similar and not as soupy as expected.

Experiencing a classic afternoon tea is typically one of the most important things to do when staying in Hong Kong, at the Peninsula Hotel in particular. It is served at their lobby lounge daily, where is widely recognised as an elegant, deluxe and sophisticate place accompanied by The Lobby Strings. Although I have been seriously longing to visit for a decent afternoon, I am glad to be here tonight for the celebration of our Daddy’s birthday.

The Peninsula Hong Kong is now offering a birthday treat to guests who can enjoy a complimentary set dinner upon ordering for a party of four or more, along with a birthday cake from the Chef.

Our 4-course dinner menu starts with a choice of smoked salmon salad, with chopped potato, red onion, and mustard dressing. Follow by a heart warming clear soup, a chicken consomme with several mushroom stuffed tortelloni.

For main, I like the beef tenderloin grilled to medium rare, nicely tender, serving on a bed of roasted potato and grilled seasonal veggies.

My favourite is no doubt the chocolate mousse which has been beautifully presented in a glassware. Consists of chocolate sponge, chocolate crunches, creamy cherry curd, refreshing sherbet made with Morello cherries and a smooth and silky chocolate mousse base. The rum baba is also very lovely-looking, soaked with a generous amount of rum and topped with a wonderfully smooth Tahitian vanilla cream.

Our dinner ends with a chocolate orange mousse birthday cake and even though we are all so stuffed, this cake still tastes impressive with loads of love.

Rotiboy was founded in Penang, Malaysia. It first started as a neighbourhood bakery where sold freshly baked loaves for the households, breads for kids to bring as snacks and cake for celebrations. Until the idea “one bun that rule us all” came into the mind of the founder, he started the revolution and named this one-and-only bun as “Rotiboy”, after his naughty nephew “naughty-boy”.

And oh boy! This popular bakery finally comes to Hong Kong.

This bun itself reminds me of our Asian creation – “Mexican Bao”, with a crispy and cookie-like crust. The soft interior presents a generous aroma of coffee, laced with a little melted butter, but unfortunately hollow. Bear in mind, these texture will only exit if you eat it hot and fresh.

Beside the signature Rotiboy (coffee bun), as well as durian and cheese buns, the Hong Kong branch is also selling slushy and ice cream. I have a Kopi Slush, which is basically a coffee slush with their handcraft coffee ice cream. The base is very lightly sweetened, whereas the ice cream is a little icier than I thought. I should have tried the Teh, aka “lai cha”, something like Hong Kong milk tea.

平時好少黎旺角既我,今日終於為咗我最鍾意食既小籠包慕名而來啦!黎到廣華街,真係大開眼界。呢到365日都好多嘢食,有最出名既肥姐小食店,媽咪雞蛋仔,仲有啲台灣珍珠奶茶呀,彩虹雪糕呀,麻辣牛雜呀等等,唔怪得之啲人咁鍾意黎呢到掃街啦!

今次黎到尚香,座落於廣華街既街頭,人流比較少。店名寫著 “舌尖上的中國”,似乎幾有睇頭。 店舖細細咁,但就提供四款指定點心。難得黎到不得不試佢地 signature 既巨型湯包。
蟹皇湯包用個筲箕器皿裝住,手掌size,好大個,好可愛。我好欣賞佢超多湯喔!我用飲管飲咗一啖,ummm… 覺得有少少腥,所以建議加啲醋食。個外皮幾薄,用竹籤戳穿會見到蛋黃色既蟹黃,一絲絲既蟹肉,但比例上就細啲。

哇!好熱呀!影完未呀?兩款小籠包都用紙兜裝住,所以佢話好熱… 嘿嘿。
蟹黃小籠包頭頂上面有橙色既蟹膏,好容易分辨到佢地同鮮肉小籠包既分別。兩款小籠包個摺口位好厚,但我鍾意,哈哈!
每隻小籠包都有湯,嫩嫩的,味道上就差不多,但心裡上總覺得前者好食啲。

佢仲有糯米燒賣架。但我地唔食糯米,所以就無試到嚕 :)

Joyful House is a new dessert place opened at the shopping mall, PopWalk near the TKO MTR station. Just a few minutes walk from Exit A, you’ll find many restaurants including Japanese curry, ramen, fast food chain, Cantonese and Western to organic healthy cuisine, whilst Joyful House is particularly noticeable because of its colourful design with a joyful and relaxing vibe.

We come on a Friday night before dinner. The menu basically covers cake rolls, parfait, lava cake, pancake and honey toast box; some traditional and hot sweet soup are also offered during the winter season.

I’m so impressed with the modified sweet potato sweet soup dessert served with a foamy ginger syrup. The sweet and refreshing agar agar ginger jelly, creamy purple sweet potato puree, mousse and candied sweet potato, everything is brought together beautifully along with a scoop of milk ice cream and spun sugar. You just have to pour over the ginger syrup to enjoy this combination of textures.

Another signature would be their swiss roll made with lavender. It is served with his favourite taro ice cream, while the cake roll comes strongly scented with lavender. The taro cream is smooth and deletable and I love the popping seaweed ball so much but the cake can be even softer and moister!

We also love the durian pancake made with thin and a little chewy pancakes, durian cream and a sprinkle of freeze-dried durian.

Pizza Maru, wellbeing dough, healthy ingredients, these are what they known for.
Located at the food court of Hysan Place, it is one of those colourful and welcoming Korean restaurant chain where serves an impressive list of fusion pizza, pasta and the ever popular popular Korean fried chicken.

What does it mean by wellbeing dough? They acquired a patent in Korea for their specific pizza dough made with green tea, chlorella and 12 kinds of cereals including rye, black rice, barley and oats, which make it extra delightful and nutrient-packed.

We decided to go for a simple combination of tomato with cheese pizza. The bready crust is generously sprinkled with powdered sugar, very crusty and thick. Stuffed with my favourite type of creamy double mozzarella, also some stringy cheese and parmesan for its distinct flavor. The Maru tomato sauce is a particular feature which nicely match with the pepperoni topping.

I’m always a fan of crunchy crispy skin on those Korean fried chicken. One version is slathered in a sticky sweet chili sauce, another one is a very remarkable honey butter powder. Nothing greasy, goldenly fried, juicy and tender.

Eventually, the fries come with a honey whipped cream dip which I wish for more of that parmesan cheese.

Crumbs was once a leading frozen yogurt brand in Hong Kong. At the forefront of froyo industry, it is arguably one of the top ones among all other competitors. Debuted at Causeway Bay, their new establishment has returned to this ever bustling area.

Apart from the delicious original frozen yogurt and famous homemade scones that come in flavors of cheese, raisin and chocolate, they have added a huge selection of toppings such as matcha daifuku, matcha chocolate, Pocky biscuit sticks, macarons, coconut puree, and a new froyo flavor – Hokkaido Matcha.

I go for a super size original froyo with a combo of favourite house crumbs, with a strong scent of cinnamon, chewy mochi, chopped oreo and fresh blueberries. The original froyo is firm, sweet, creamy, whereas my friend’s matcha froyo is similarly delightful, dusted with matcha powder and topped with matcha mochi and pocky sticks.
There are also pastries, freshly baked breads at the ‘new’ Crumbs bakery!

65 Peel has been a very instagrammable spots, especially the familiar-looking neon signage saying “gwai lo herbal tea”. Inside the bar, it is pretty casual, trendy and feels industrial with spacious sharing tables and bar stools all around.

This gastro pub is all about locally brewed craft beers, where you can expect a long list of craft beers such as Moonzen and Lamma Ginger, as well as Stone from the U.S., Bridge Road from Aus and Zedder Cider from New Zealand. We love the Dry Fresh Apple Cider with 4.8% ABV and my Lemon Lime Hop which tries to mimic the flavor of beer, but non-alcoholic.

The one-page food menu offers some beer-friendly snacks. Our favourites are the satisfying fried cheese with an incredibly molten center, serves with honey prunes and crispy parmesan chips; the ‘freaking fingerlicking good’ crispy boneless fried chicken with a sweet and chili dip.
I also highly recommend their suckling pig which has been slow-cooked for 20 hours, portion-wise, delectably tender, juicy and has an excellent crispy skin too! Must-try!

For something sweet, try the beer-misu. It basically means tiramisu made with beer instead of alcohol or coffee. Interesting!

I can still recall the first time I have Brazilian cuisine was in Salt Lake City. It was about a huge variety of different cuts of meat, chicken, and seafood being served individually to our table in a continuous all-you-can-eat manner. I loved and missed the experience.

Luckily, Dining Concept has brought such a meat-lover concept at Braza Churrascaria Brazilian Steakhouse, which occupies the Grand Progress Building featuring a Brazilian style lunch buffet, starting from salad bar loaded with leafy green salads, potato salad, smoked salmon and half seared tuna, daily soup and chicken stew, plenty of cured meats and cheese, in addition to a selection of unlimited grilled beef, pork, chicken as the main!

The waiter brings to the table some cut of beef sirloin, chicken wings and pork, but I guess my favourite is their signature Picanha, the perfect cut skewered and hand carved at the table, tender, juicy and absolutely aromatic.

While I thought I’m so stuffed and I couldn’t possibly get another piece of meat, I randomly grab a bread roll, which turns out surprisingly chewy and cheesy. It is a Brazilian Cheese Bread made with tapioca flour!

Considering all the excitement, excellent services and a great deal for lunch, my first Brazilian experience in Hong Kong is entirely amazing.

Following the 101 introductory food list at Seoul, I’m doing a second list for this year.

We start off with a healthy and power-boosting smoothie made with strawberry, banana and vanilla milk from the Joe and the Juice, the new branch at Hong Kong International Airport.

At Hongdae district, we randomly grab a heavenly cup of boneless fried chicken covered thoroughly with sweet and spice barbecue sauce, and cheese sauces. It also comes with tater tots and mini rice cake. Nom nom nom…

Needless to say, O’sulloc is my favourite place to visit in Seoul and this time I made it to the Hongdae store. I love everything here including Green tea king o’fredo, houjicha o’fredo, green tea latte, green tea tiramisu and cake rolls. For this winter, they have a list of new items. Green tea cream latte, green tea affogato with milk ice cream as well as green tea fondue!

Sulbing Korean Dessert Cafe is also a place to go for some local bingsu dessert, which can be easily found throughout the big cities in Korea. Strawberry cheesecake wins over by having so many sweet strawberries than the tiramisu bingsu with nothing but a hot espresso on the side.

Finally, a grapefruit soda from Twosome place at N Seoul Tower, a quick soy sauce raw crab and seafood pancake meal at Pho Duck in Myeongdong, and a shrimp burger & chicken nuggets with melon soda before our return flight at Incheon airport.

There are a few seafood markets to visit in Seoul, such as the Mapo Agricultural & Marine Products Market, and shortly, the Noryangjin Fish Market. Opens 24-7, it runs with partner restaurants where you can choose and buy your own fresh seafood and bring them to the restaurant for preparation.

In comparison, this seafood market is much closer to the city center, where is just several stations apart from Seoul Station, much cozier with a bigger environment.

You can find plentiful of marine stalls whose could speak fluent Mandarin mostly. We have got a large king crab, prawns, scallop and a platter of fresh oysters.

I like to eat the fresh oyster with the red chili paste they provide; the prawns are grilled; both the scallops and king crab are steamed. The remaining crab roe from the shell is returned to the kitchen and stir fried with rice, nori and sesame seeds seasoning.

This market eatery is surely my top choice compare to the others!

Taegeuk Dang is the oldest bakery in Seoul. To reach here, simply take subway line 3 to Dongguk University Station, and exit at no. 2, you will see Taeguek Dang right in front of you.

I’m fascinated as I enter the cafe because there are a lot of freshly made breads and cookies, from chiffon cakes, red bean bun, cake rolls to donuts and coffee churros. Some are already packaged in their old-school design.

Coming here, it is a must to try their renowned homemade Monaka ice cream. One with original milk ice cream sandwiched in a waffle, another with a layer of glutinous rice cake. The ice cream itself is especially sweet, milky, has an icy texture but wise. It tastes a little like the traditional white rabbit creamy candy in my opinion.

This place is so worth a visit for some Korean style bread and patisseries.

Dango Jip is a Japanese-Korean fusion cafe located off the main street of Hongdae. No doubt it is pretty hard to find, a small cozy shop serving a homey menu. Take line 6 and get off at Sangsu Subway Station exit 4, where you should see a Starbucks. Go straight about 2 blocks, turn right onto a one way street, turn left at the corner before CU convenient store. Turn right at a black coffee shop, and follow by a left turn to see Dango Jip.

Specializes in dango, aka Japanese sweet dumplings, made with rice flour and covered in different sauces varying from red bean, green tea, cherry blossom and sweet soy sauce. They are so chewy and delicious.

My favourite here is the cherry blossom shaved ice which is topped with the same cherry blossom puree, some crunch and has a sweet milk base.If you’re looking for something savoury, the cafe also offers some Japanese rice bowl including Ochazuke as well as a chicken and egg donburi rice bowl.

Good luck finding your way to this lovely cafe!

Another oldest restaurant in Seoul, Woo Lae Oak, has been here since the pre-Korean War era in 1946. They are famous for their naengmyeon, the cold noodle which is one of the fews who serves it in the authentic North Korean, Pyeongyang style.

The bulgogi, pan-fried beef is also a popular dish here, but the boneless shortribs has been the table’s favourite. Cook right upon on the copper grill, it tastes wonderfully juicy and tender with a sweet marinade.

To reach here, take line 2 and 5 at Euljiro-4-ga Station Exit 4. Walk straight for about 10 meters and turn right at the first alley. Go 50 meters and it will be on your left.

I initially planned to get a Baekmidang organic soy milk soft serve at the new Hyundai City Outlet in Dongdaemun. It has been closed down and fortunately we come to Meal Top where is found to have served this popular bingsu dessert for a long history.

Also being one of the oldest and best bingsu cafes in Seoul, their ice cream menu covers not many choices but original patbingsu, green tea bingsu, roasted soybean powder and red bean hot soup.

I go for an original patbingsu, a shaved ice topped with sweet milk, azuki bean paste and two pieces of chewy rice cake. An excellent mix of flavors to satisfy my bingsu crave.

As its name suggested, La Creperie is a French restaurant chain specialising in authentic Breton crepes and galettes; crepe is basically a thin pancake made with wheat flour whereas galatte is gluten-free and made with buckwheat flour; both are cooked on a griddle to form a flat round cake.

The new venue at Causeway Bay is beautifully styled like a casual French bistro where offers a good-value weekday lunch menu including options of fresh salad, blue cheese linguini pasta, lobster spaghetti, homemade fish soup with croutons and cheese, and of course, their signature galatte!

It all starts with a lime mint soda and a crispy galatte. The smoked salmon and spinach comes perfectly with an egg on top, a cream base and a little squeeze of lemon juice; whereas the smoked ham is amazingly filled with fresh and thick-sliced tomatoes, extremely melty and mild camembert cheese.

For extra dollars, we have soft dessert crepes that are topped with delectable cooked apple and salted butter caramel, as well as my favourite vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce. Perfect ending!
