  1. My friend told me about this place so I had to go and check it out because I love chicken. It is slightly different to Roast chicken and potatoes but they had my favourite chips with chicken salt! They use free range chicken that are hormone free according to their website. Since this place specializes in chicken, I had to have chicken with chips but they have the Birdy pack which also includes a salad and chips so I got the pack. For salads, there were so many choices! The chicken was roasted perfectly and fuss free while the chips were so good with that chicken salt sprinkled on it. I purposely paired it with the detox salad which is cabbage and carrots. My friend had the DG's chicken and waffle with additional small Romaine salad. Small romaine salad: Finished with the Iced Tea and Lemonade with Cayenne Pepper. The lemonade was spicier than I imagined. Plastic straws are not used here which is quite good. It is good to see another Aussie joint in Hong Kong!

  2. I love crab but there are not many Japanese crab specialists about. There is one in Wanchai called Kanizen but the set does not offer as much crab as this set.The Klwame crab set costs $1088 for one or $2176 for two which is really good because you can indulge on your own or if you are in groups of 3s or 5s it can be catered for. Before they begin, they will bring over a tray of crabs to show you which crabs you will be eating. Started with the assorted appetizer which had cherry tomato stuffed with mozzarella cheese, crab tomalley infused tofu, whelk, duck breast and cucumber with crab tomalley. Next came the stewed wintermelon topped with truffle and parma ham which was nice and appetizing. The next course was the crab and sashimi which were all fresh and tasty. I liked the way there were sliced fruit beneath the sashimi which helped to balance the heaviness of the sashimi. The steamed egg was topped with lots of crab meat and salmon roe. The egg was silky flavoured by the bursting saltiness of the salmon roe. The next course was the abalone which was soft and the sauce was very sweet. Now to the star of the show which was the steamed crab. The crab meat was sweet and juicy and there was so much tomalley there. Next were the grilled crab shells and legs, again more tomalley and this time it was chunky crab meat inside the King Crab legs. The last course was steamed rice with crab meat mixed with truffle and edamame beans which left me full and satisfied. For dessert, It was Matcha warabi but I was too full for it.

  3. Flamingo Bloom are launching drinks faster than I can keep up! This time they have launched the #NAKEDZERO series which are #ZEROSUGAR #ZERO CAFFEINE and #ZEROPRESERVATIVES whilst being dairy and lactose free because it contains Almond milk. These drinks really appealed to me because of the almond milk. There are three flavours: P!NK, GOLD and V!OLET. The NAKED ZERO series are blended with Mongolian grapes and made to order. You can see how much grapes there are blended. As always, their drinks impress. I wasn't sure how it was going to taste but it tasted like yoghurt because of the grapes and because it was freshly made it is well blended and no vitamins are lost. As well as the #NAKEDZERO series, there is a hot series for winter. Decisions arre tough because they have this new apple and cinnamon and the caramel cinnamon hot milk a well as smashed pears! The smashed apple and cinnamon which is the best in my opinion because it tastes like my favourite apple pie with hints of jasmine. Next time I will request for some Salted milk cap so I can imagine drinking apple pie with cream! For light bites, they have four new toast items!! They had hot dog briefly which I wasn't quick enough to try but to be honest toasts are healthier and better. There are four different toasts but avocado is my favourite so I had that. The whole thing just tasted in harmony because you could taste the lovely salted butter on the toast whilst having bites of soft creamy avocado and juicy cherries tomatoes enhanced by the black pepper. The avocado pieces were just right which was really good because at other places I have been served crisp, hard avocado which is not ripe to eat.

  4. Found out about this place through a friend, the name Bistroholic sounded really familiar. It turns out that it is run under the Coffeeholic group in Sheung Wan, hence the name. When you get there, you are greeted with this modern bar table by the window with flamingoes and a mini leaning tower of Pisa at the other end of the room. The menu was really good with a wide variety. Here was what we had: ++++++ Sweet corn soup bisque with salted caramel popcorn: I loved the way, the soup was sweetcorn all the way through with sweet corn soup bisque paired with popcorn which is also made of popcorn. It had a lovely sweet touch from the caramel on the popcorn, so sweet or savoury popcorn would both work and it just makes the soup a fun part of dinner. +++++++ Next were the Chicken wings stuffed with Taiwanese sausage and prawn. Interesting combination! The chicken skin was so crispy that they cracked when you put your fork in them which was brilliant as there isn't much fat underneath the skin. ++++ The Matsusaka pork confit with smoked romaine salad was another surprise. I am not a fan of pork, but the pork here is thinly sliced, tender and silky seasoned well by the truffle and has an aromatic smoky flavour to it complimented by the air dried apples. +++++ For pasta we had the Spaghetti marinara with Argentina red prawn with mussels and Taiwanese peeled jalapeno. The pasta was al dente and the Taiwanese peeled Jalapenos gave a lovely tangy punch with a spicy kick to it. +++++++++ We also had the Pan seared Hokkaido scallops risotto with sea urchin prawn jus. This was seriously rich with uni and prawn jus but I liked it. +++++ Slow Cooked Iberico Pork with Anchovy Tomato Jus: The Iberico pork was lovely and juicy as it was slow cooked and it went really well with the tasty Anchovy tomato sauce. I liked the mash and grilled vegetables that came with it because it makes it complete. ++++ Finished with Tiramisu which is light and moreish as it is soft and creamy just how it should be with an alcoholic soaked sponge in the middle. f you book through FB, you get truffle seasoning, truffle pate and a cash coupon when you dine there.

  5. Fans of Mr Steak can come here because The Sky Bar is also part of Mr Steak, hence the beef is guaranteed to be good. The set dinner includes a semi buffet soup, salad and dessert bar. The sets are priced according to the main course that you choose. For starters, chose the Brown crab and American Pearl Oysters. The oysters were fresh as expected and all it needed was a squeeze of lemon. Although there is some strange tomato sauce in the middle which is a Hong Kong thing. The Brown crab was the star of the show because there was so much roe and Tomalley that it was best eaten with bread. The pea soup from the soup bar was warm and comforting with lots of peas in it. For mains, the pineapple and short ribs were tangy and tender. I had the surf and turf because the beef was as good as expected. It was a nice chunk of tenderloin that was juicy and full of beef flavour. Finished with the desserts which left me feeling satisfied.

  6. It's been a while since I last dined at Greyhound so I have forgotten how good their Thai dishes are. As it was my friends birthday we went here as she wanted the coconut crepe cake. The menu has changed quite a bit since my last visit in 2012 and they now have more pasta dishes and Western dishes to cater for a bigger audience. While the menu has expanded, the dessert menu is still fab with a great variety of desserts which make it hard to decide what to end the meal with. +++++ Started dinner with this evilicious Cherry soda, I chose it because you rarely see it on menus in HK. It turned out better than I expected because some cherry flavours can taste artificial but this one was sweet and moreish. It comes with a side of coke which you pour in, therefore giving you a cherry cola flavoured drink. After a while when the icecream has melted you get a delicious cherry soda float. +++++ The other drink we had was the Pick you up which was a healthy concoction of juices: +++ Started with the Waterfall Grilled Lamb which is Sirloin of lamb served on skewers with Thai north eastern style spices with chopped shallots, spring onion, dry chilies and lime juice. This was my favourite because their sauce was really similar to the sauce at [Chili club, Wanchai] for the thinly sliced grilled beef filet. Surprising the lamb and the sauce were a great match and lamb meat has never been so appetizing and moreish. I will definitely order this on my next visit which means I have to come back to this branch as they only serve it here. They also offer this at their Beijing branch because the people up North like lamb. It had no gaminess at all and tasted like tender beef slices. +++++ Greyhound's famous chicken wings are indeed delish as they are so convenient to eat because of the single bone element. They were crispy with a delicious salty fish saltiness. ++++++ For noodles, had the Beef balls and stewed beef noodles which came in a rich beef broth. I loved the thin rice vermicelli which soaks the broth and you also get condiments with it so you can add accordingly. Yellow chili sauce was my favourite and really brings the flavour to the next level. +++++ Spaghetti with Thai Anchovy: This item is another must order item because the taste is very strong, from salty anchovies to strong basil leaves. +++++ Larb Salmon E-Sarn Style: This was similar to the waterfall lamb, but the dressing at the bottom was tangy and fiery. The salmon tastes really good when you mix it all together. ++++ Coconut sherbet: Usually sherbets have a tart taste but this one was not. The taste was sweet and soothing like coconut melting in your mouth. It is made of young coconut and the coconut water inside which tastes so much better than coconut milk. The icy frozen coconut sorbet melting sensation was so refreshing especially when it was made from coconut water. +++++ Coconut crepe: The crepe was covered in cream which was lovely and light and it was slightly sweetened but not too sweet. In between the crepe layers there was delicious pieces of young coconut. It reminds me of the buko pie but this one is nicer because it is not so sweet. On top of the crepe, there was a piece of water chestnut which is the one served in the Tub Tim Krob dessert. Overall the cake was delicious, however the coconut meat in the middle was a little hard comparing it to the one I tried a while ago. +++++ [Greyhound Branches] Greyhound Cafè - ifc Shop 1082, Podium Level 1, ifc mall, Central Tel: +852 2383 1133 Greyhound Cafè - OT Shop OT G01, G/F, Ocean Terminal, Harbour City, TST Tel: +852 2383 6600 Greyhound Cafè - FW Shop L2-42, 2/F, Festival Walk, 80 Tat Chee Avenue, Kowloon Tong Tel: +852 2383 4838 Greyhound Cafè - GCP Shop 301-302, 3/F., Moko Place, 193 Prince Edward West, Mong Kok Tel: +852 2394 6000 Greyhound Cafè - TKS Shop 007, G/F, Cityplaza Phase 2, Taikoo Shing, Tai Koo Tel: +852 2560 9668 Greyhound Cafè - NTP Shop 103A, 1/F, New Town Plaza Phase 1, Sha Tin Tel: +852 2699 3939 Greyhound Cafè - MT 1/F, Midtown, 1 Tang Lung Street, Causeway Bay Tel: +852 2383 4038 Greyhound Cafè - Thai-pas Bar 1/F, Midtown, 1 Tang Lung Street, Causeway Bay Source
  7. I love this branch of Wang Jia Sha because the decor has a touch of vintage Chinese romanticism from the past.Went there for lunch so had the noodles. I had the Sichuan dan dan noodles which came in a lovely strong broth, the spiciness was just right for me and the minced meat and pickles gave the noodles more flavour. The beef noodles were lighter compared to the Sichuan dan dan noodles but the beef was lovely and soft. The Shanghai dumplings are a must order, each one was bursting with rich meat juice. For sweet treats, had the custard buns and souffle red bean balls. The custard buns were and piping hot, inside it was filled with runny custard. The souffle balls were light and soft filled with red bean paste. It was good that it was on a bed of icing powder, so you can dip it according to your sweetness levels.

  8. Founded in 1875, Charbonnel et Walker is one of Britain's earliest chocolatiers. Encouraged by Edward VII, (then the Prince of Wales), the company first formed as a partnership between Mrs Walker and Madame. Charbonnel hence the name Charbonnel et Walker. They are endorsed by the Royal Warrant as one of the few chocolatiers to Her Majesty The Queen where iconic customers have included Princess Diana and Princess Margaret. The chocolates are hand-made to the traditional recipes of Madame Charbonnel. Their renowned dark chocolate is made from the finest dark couverture which results in a decadently rich taste. Other chocolates in the range are really tempting. www.charbonnel.co.uk Source

  10. A new bakery spotted in Wanchai! Fresh croissants. bakehouse: 14 Tai Wong St. East, Wanchai Hong Kong Source
  11. Tea shops are trending at the moment and Hong Kong style milk tea is served here. The owner seems quite proud of his tea as he claims it is award winning tea. To be honest, Hong Kong style milk tea is not my cup of tea but I had to give it a try because he said it was an award winning tea. It was served pretty fast after I paid. The guy at the front poured milk etc into the tea. The taste was very strong with a good bitterness to it yet you could taste the balanced milk flavour. While I was there, most of the Hongkongers said it was really good but as I am English I don't know how a good HK milk tea should taste. I wonder if the prices will increase after the soft opening. #wanchai [My cup of tea 我杯茶 - 港式奶茶鴛鴦專門店] G/F, Wing Hing Building, 6 Spring Garden Lane, Wan Chai 灣仔春園街6號永興樓地下 Source
  12. A few years ago McDonalds launched all day breakfast only on new years day and since then they have been serving it every year. This year, they decided to promote the hotcakes with a choice of four sauces. Three were not available before such as strawberry, fudge and Skippy's peanut butter. Clearly the strawberry and fudge sauce are the sauces used for the sundaes. Also served all day on New Years day was the soy milk which is another breakfast item. I got the hotcakes deluxe, extra McSausage muffin, Bacon loaded fries, apple pie and the soy milk because I always like having fun mixing the things around. The pancakes were hot, soft and fluffy and they tasted even better when I put the filling from the apple pie onto the pancakes. Some of the chocolate sauce was put into my soymilk making it into chocolate soymilk, while I played with the remaining sauce on the hotcakes. For the Sausage McMuffin, I put the guacamole from the loaded fries and it went really well together. To summarize, I had a fun New Years day! Source
  13. [Walkers crisps] Bugles

    Bugles are American corn snacks but now they are available under Walkers crisps in three flavours: Southern BBQ, Sour cream and black pepper and cheese. Southern BBQ: The Southern bbq flavour tasted like prawn cocktail #skips with a hint of bbq. Sour cream and black pepper: The sour cream and black pepper was the lightest of the three flavours but moreish because the black pepper gives it a nice kick with the sour cream. Cheese: The cheese flavour tasted like hard baked cheese #quavers that melt in your mouth. Source
  14. blk water

    At the food expo, I saw some interesting black water. blk water claims that blk. water contains both fulvic and humic acid (found in soil, sediment and aquatic environments). But neither fulvic acid or humic acid are required in humans. The addition of these two acids to water in no way enhances the nutritional benefits of water. Anyway, I tried it and it tastes the same as water but psycologically it feels weird drinking black water because it looks dirty. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtaqYna3UPA Source
  15. A while ago I won these Paleo Avocado Brownies by Bad food gone good. It was my first time trying paleo brownies so I was really excited. These avocado brownies were so good because they were soft and moist with a strong avocado taste and they were not too sweet. If you look closely, you can see bits of green avocado in it. Source
  16. SEA SALT PISTACHIO LATTE from 7-Eleven Hong Kong I wish the sea salt and pistachio flavour was stronger. Source
  17. Mince pies are a must at Christmas, so this year I got BIG SISTER as the other brand was sold out. In a way, I was glad because these actually tasted surprisingly good. Personally I am not fond of Mince pies because of fruit peel but these contain cherries in it which balances the fruit peel. Source
  18. I loved this yoghurt from Waitrose. There were lots of crushed hazelnut pieces in it and the overall flavour was nutty and smooth. Source
  19. [KP Snacks] Space Raiders

    These are British inexpensive corn and wheat snacks by KP Snacks in a shape of an Alien's head. The pickled onion flavour tastes a bit my monster munch but the crunch is much harder. After finishing the crisps, I decided to have fun shrinking them in the oven like I used to as a kid. Source
  20. [Muller Corner] Red Cherry

    As always Muller does deliciously creamy yoghurt, this time I had cherry which was not as tart as I expected and it was like sweet cherry puree because the cherries were pretty much blended. Source
  21. As well as the digestive nibbles, McVitie's also have caramel digestive biscuits!! Source
  22. Tried the limited edition Pumpkin Spice by Quaker Oats. It was nice having it on a cold day as it was warming and comforting. I wasn't sure what to expect but when I opened the packet I could see pumpkin seeds and smell cinnamon. After adding milk and putting it in the microwave for 2 minutes it was ready to eat. I don't have a sweet tooth but I found myself adding sugar to it. It had a nice cinnamon flavour and a good crunch from the pumpkin seeds but there was no pumpkin flavour to it. Source
  23. Decided to try the pineapple bun filled with durian as it was recommended to me by the staff. To be honest, I don't like pineapple buns because of the weird buttery crumble on top. The pineapple bun here is sliced and stuffed with a scoop of D24 durian icecream and creamy durian filling. It was simply delicious because the creamy durian puree tasted delicious with the bottom half of the soft bun. The icecream is good too but it gets in the way so I had it separately. https://www.facebook.com/cafe1980s/ Source
  24. If you like Thai food, I think this is a great place for hotpot because the appetizer, dessert and drinks cabinet is all you can eat including chicken, Thai salad, etc. For the main hotpot broth, you get a choice of Thai style soups such as tom yum kung, coconut chicken, curry etc. I chose two because it was only $10 extra for two different pots. For me, the best bit were the noodles because they have Thai Mama noodles and Cambodian noodles which I had first before the broth get oily. With the Cambodian noodles, I like the way, the softness of the noodles is up to me. It was nice eating out of bamboo bowls for a change. Both noodles were good but I prefer the Instant noodles. After having the noodles, it was time for the beef and seafood. You get half a grey mullet which goes nicely in the tomyumkung as the strong broth balances the strong flavour of this fish. I put the pandan leaves in the coconut pot which were used to garnish the seafood platter and it enhanced the coconut broth even more because pandan and coconut always go well together. The huge oysters didn't shrink in the hotpot and they had a very strong taste to it. For drinks had the fizzy cucumber which was refreshing and soothes the spicy food. As well as the hotpot I was really satisfied with the appetizer bar so I hope to come again soon. +++++ [Thai Bin Lo]: 9/F, King Wah Centre, 628 Nathan Road, Mong Kok 23678876 Source
  25. The Best of British Hong Kong celebrates and showcases the UK’s culture and capabilities in one of the world’s most dynamic and exciting cities! Best of British Hong Kong has been up and running since 2015 and it is getting bigger and better every year. The first year, it was very small held at Chater Garden and now it is taking up the most of Tamar park with lots of activities and food stalls. To buy food, you have to get cash coupons at the counter. The cash coupons are in pounds £, the funny thing is $10 = £10 so the food prices look funny! Imagine Mac n Cheese, Scotch eggs for 60 quid!! As a foodie, it was a really hard decision because there were so many food stalls serving all my favourites such as pies, mac and cheese etc and the participating stalls were recognized restaurants such as Jamie Oliver, Shoreditch, Chips Republic, Golden Pig. In the end I had the pork apple burger with black pudding, chicken and leek pie and the roast wrap. Pork and apple burger with black pudding from The Golden Pig: Roast Wrap from the House of Yorkshire: I was disappointed with this wrap because I thought it was going to be the Yorkshire pudding wrap which is trending in UK but it was just an ordinary pancake wrap! Although the wrap was disappointing, the fillings were delicious with kale, roast potatoes, gravy, horse radish and meat. Chicken and leek pie from The Golden Pig: One of the fun activities this year was having fun inside British Airways snow globe. That's a wrap this year!!
