  1. Following the opening of the new wing of YOHO I in Yuen Long, ANA Sushi has come to introduce some Japanese cuisines in their new branch. They serve a number of categories including teishoku, sushi, sashimi, donburi, yakimono, tempura, agemono, robatayaki and teppanyaki, using seasonal, fresh and daily-catch ingredients, and has a warm wooden colour setting that gives a relaxing vibe. In addition, a semi-open dining area along with an open sushi and skewer bar.

Using yuzu peel and Japanese vinegar, it gives an amazing citrus flavor, together with mixed greens, chopped cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, fried garlic and spring onion. Daily fresh-catch sashimi includes Hokkaido scallop, toro and my favourite well-torched red snapper.

They live with good environmental condition, which makes them an expensive beef to eat in Japan. Serving on a shrimp cracker, Chef has prepared them in 3 ways, soy sauce, fire-grilled and beef tartare with raw quail egg sushi. The former two are exceptionally delicious, very tender and has a perfect marbling of fat.

  3. HAKU – An Omakase Ending With A Smile

    Being one of the most anticipated restaurant openings in Summer, HAKU has recently set at Harbour City taking a space on the ground floor of Ocean Terminal. Curated by Hideaki Matsuo, the Chef of a 3* Japanese fusion restaurant in Osaka, it is also formed in partnership with Agustin Balbi, the former executive chef of The Ocean. HAKU serves up contemporary Japanese dishes with European twist, paying so much attention to detail, ingredient and presentation. Start with the porcelain on the table, each plate has been carefully crafted with special pattern dedicated to a literal meaning behind. HAKU Chef Agustin Balbi Bar Seating Our omakase menu starts with a series of amuse bouche. Pickled beetroot with beetroot powder, rolled up inside a red rose; a mini crispy tartlet filled with incredibly sweet Japanese corn kernel, confit duck leg; toasted nori cone with hamachi and umami dashi cream; and a deep-fried kibinago river fish on a skewer. Pickled Tsukemono Apple, Beetroot Powder Pickled Tsukemono Apple, Beetroot Powder Japanese Sweetcorn, Confit Duck Leg Hamachi, Nori Cone, Dashi Cream Kibinago Fish, Japanese Panko Crumb To follow is a stunning piece of plump and juicy Japanese oyster topped with yuzu kosho, green apple granita that made a sharp and tangy hit. Likewise the Kyushu tomato is very refreshing, comes with sardines, bellota ham, sprinkled with shio kombu and sake kasu, which is a sentiment from fermented sake. Japanese Oyster, Yuzu Kosho, Apple Granita Kyushu Tomato, Kamasu, Bellota Ham Next is supposed to be a foie gras mousse with squid ink lotus chips, but since I don’t eat foie gras, Chef offers me a chicken wing and king prawns instead, surprisingly tender, accompanied by a deliciously creamy porcini mushroom sauce. In addition, a brioche to dip the sauce. Chicken Wings, King Prawns, Porcini Brioche Things continue with some signature dishes here.

  6. Sushi Roll Nomura is like another Japanese takeout, located at East Tsim Sha Tsui, along the New Mandarin Plaza food street. It offers plenty of sushi hand roll varieties and a selection of tamagoyaki at a reasonable price. We order each of us a sushi hand roll, plus a tamagoyaki and signature sea urchin don to share. The $1 salmon poke handroll is deliciously fatty and a little spicy to taste, whereas the salmon roe with fatty tuna handroll has richer ingredients, nicely served on a wooden stand. Highly recommended is the sea urchin don included nori strips, sushi rice, minced fatty tuna, Hokkaido scallop, sea urchin, crabmeat and salmon roe. The size is seemingly smaller, nevertheless the sea urchin that has been dressed with uni soy sauce is especially creamy and sweet! The made-to-order tamagoyaki is also fluffy and delectable with a generous mentaiko filling, however it is slightly burnt between layers. All in all, food is price wise and there are more such as sushi burrito and rice bowl.

  7. As I have mentioned in my previous post, L’attitude in Kennedy Town is an ice cream parlour and cafe going all cutesy with soft toys and cloud-shaped lights everywhere, set at the Imperial Kennedy apartment estate. The menu features a range of International fare and some fusion creations, for instance, foie gras cotton candy, soft-shell crabs burger and beetroot onsen egg spaghetti. First to start with is an avocado mango tartare topped with a slab of creamy sea urchin, black truffle paste, crabmeat and salmon roe on the side. The combination of flavor is needlessly incredible, refreshing and I particularly enjoy the sweet and sticky balsamic glaze drizzled around the plate. My favourite is the fresh oyster served with sea urchin and caviar. Very delicate and briny, with a creamy texture, and a remarkable ponzu jelly for a final touch. Besides, we also ordered a price-wise snack platter that has french fries, chicken wings and soft shell crab. French fries are typically thick-cut and seasoned with salt pepper, the chicken wings have a nice barbecue sauce to go with, whereas the soft shell crab are fried perfectly crispy. And of course, we finish with an adorable candy floss ice cream. This time it is a Puyooma cartoon, which I”m not familiar with. The milk ice cream is pretty standard, creamy, with some extra mango sauce. Considered that food are reasonably priced, this place is super-cute, comfortable, cosy and family-friendly, perfect for family with kids.

  8. TSUJIRI Hong Kong – The New Branch at APM

    I have always loved Tsujiri, a Japanese teahouse that has been through 7 generations, over 150 year of history in Uji Kyoto. Following the successful opening of their first outlet in IFC, they have recently opened another branch in APM Kwun Tong introducing a whole new dine-in option. The menu has a lot more options including savouries such as ochazuke rice, udon, sandwich and rice ball, also some cheesecake, french toast and warabi mochi. My favourite is the unagi ochazuke rice. It included chopped grilled eel, seaweed, spring onion and steamed Japanese rice, served aside a pot of steaming hot Uji Sencha which is fragrant and comforting. The portion is light and perfect enough for me to finish one. Aside from the regular matcha soft serve, they are offering a highly recommended 2.0 matcha that is much richer in flavor, creamy and not-too-sweet. We also got another recommended item, an ice cold Premium Yame Gyokuro, which is light and refreshing with a strong aftertaste. Surely I would say the food served here are delicious and amazing, and I am hoping to revisit again to try out their parfait dessert!

Their range of cupcakes are not only natural, nutrient-rich, also fit many paleo diet as well as gluten-free, egg-free, or vegan request. There are a good limited number of seats at Landmark shop, with mini cupcakes, grab-and-go, cold-pressed juices and healthy drinks offered. My favourite is surely the Men In Black. It is a black sesame based cupcake, gluten-free, dairy-free, filled with a rich sesame paste imitating the traditional Chinese sesame soup. The Day Dreamer naked cake is also a signature here. So beautifully presented, it is gluten-, dairy- and egg-free, made with a rich chocolate and chia seeds based giving a crunchy texture and topped with non-buttercream vanilla frosting.

Green Common is a healthy concept shop offering an extensive selection of international snacks and food, including multigrain cracker and Jealous Sweet gummies, mainly gluten-free, vegan and raw products. In two years time, they started up cafes in Landmark and Harbour City, where people can enjoy casual dining featuring some signature dishes using the pioneering Food 2.0 ingredients. The Beyond Burger, is totally a plant-based burger. It is basically composed of dairy-free bun, fresh tomato, chopped lettuce, vegan honey mustard, apple puree, and most importantly, the zero cholesterol, hormones-and-antibiotics-free Beyond Meat patty that looks, cooks and sizzles like real ground beef. Indeed, the whole idea works really well, tasty, delicious, and “meaty”! Also, Green Common has recently come up with two new cold-pressed juices. My favourite is Novak Ace, which is a watermelon-based juice mixed with pineapple and cranberry, and can be kept longer meaning 90 days. Before you leave the shop, remember to grab a pack of East Bali Chocolate Cashew, highly recommended!

  11. G One Sushi was first opened in Tai Po. It has been a very popular Japanese restaurant ever since, and lately they have opened the second branch in Tsim Sha Tsui. It is an upper-floor restaurant, set with tables and a sushi bar in a relatively small space. The menu includes lunch sets coming with sushi, sashimi and rice bowl, whilst others are omakase and plenty of Japanese dishes such as salad, grills, tempura and fried rice. We opt to set at the sushi bar, starting with a Chef’s choice salad. The sea grapes are sourced from Okinawa and the Amela tomato is definitely juicy and extra-sweet. Dressed with tangy vinaigrette on mixed greens, it is pretty refreshing. Followed by an impressive platter of sashimi, there are sliced whelk, seared seabass and lobster. It is my first time trying lobster sashimi which is fresh and mild; the whelk is excellently crunchy whereas the seabass is well-torched with a fatty skin. You cannot leave without trying the signature uni rice don. The small one is topped with 4 layers of Korean sea urchin whereas the large one is topped with 7 layers. The sea urchin is incredibly rich and creamy, made with nicely flavored brownish sushi rice, minced toro, it is phenomenal! We also like the grilled crab shell stuffed with crab roe and a raw egg yolk, served aside some mini toast; the fresh clams are also meaty and plumpy, with super sweet daikon cooked in a flavorful spicy broth! Considering its affordable prices and delicious food, this place is no doubt recommended!

  13. Hutong in Hong Kong is neither a typical Beijing alleyway nor the hawker hall in Kuala Lumpur, it is a sought-after Chinese restaurant which belongs to the Aqua Groups. The huge space has been set with wooden doorways, birdcages and red lanterns, along with an astonishing view of Hong Kong’s skyline from floor to ceiling windows; a wishing tree standing in the middle also adds a little more traditional Chinese elements to our brunch today. It is breathtaking! That said, we start our Northern Chinese inspired brunch with free-flow champagne and tea-infused mocktail, including over 18 sharing dishes served to the table, mainly appetisers, dim sum, mains and desserts. There are many spicy food to start with such as shredded chicken with glass noodles in a Sichuan chili sauce, wasabi marinated squid, and a Boston lobster wonton with housemade chili oil. Others like the coddled egg has been nicely smoked and topped with foie gras, siu mai with a green wrapper has a wonderful mushroom flavor, the chicken & ginger dumplings have been seared with a golden brown bottom. My favourites are the fluffy steamed mushroom baos, sweet and sour Kung Po cod fish with cashew nuts and the crispy soft-shell crab that has been served stunningly in a large ancient bamboo basket. The chicken breast is also deliciously diced and sauteed in a sweet shallot and black bean sauce, whereas the crispy 24 hour-marinated lamb racks are served on a wooden board with thinly sliced scallions, minced garlic and with some steamed pancakes. For desserts, we have crispy glutinous rice balls filled with purple sweet potato puree and milk chocolate, steamed salted egg custard bun, and the best is always the homemade oolong tea ice cream.

  15. Meat Pie Gor – The Unusual Meat Patties

    Following the success of its first branch in Tsuen Wan, Meat Pie Gor is set to open in Tai Wai the cooked food stall. There is no denying the fact that Meat Pie Gor is a much sought-after restaurant specializes in making pork meat patty. And because meat patty is much loved by the Cantoneses, this dish is apparently simple but essentially can mix everything in together. Aside from those classic ingredients including salted egg, dried squid and salted fish, there are loads of varieties on the menu such as Horlicks, coffee & condensed milk, fruity jam meat patties etc. We order two unfamiliar but sounds legit meat patties, the lobster and the fish maw. The lobster meat pie is presented aesthetically in the form of a whole tail of lobster with the meat patty stuffed with visible lobster meat, but I wish for more flavors and personally I ain’t use to the spice flavor from the oil rice. Nonetheless, I really like the fish maw meat pie not only is it much more tastier and well seasoned, it is stuffed with a good amount of pork fat giving a moist texture whilst the fish maw is so perfectly soft, gooey, and definitely weigh 3 taels. In addition, we have bite-size dumplings that have been deep fried to crisp whereas the durian mochi is also fried to golden brown colour, but still soft and filled with sweet durian cream inside, very delicious! Final verdict, despite the branch in Tai Wai is a bit far from the city center, the environment is nicely spacious and comfortable.
