  1. Singmalay Series

    I love Singaporean and Malaysian food so decided to make a record of all the Singmalays foods that I eat. Some are authentic and some are just Singmalay inspired.

  2. Went here to celebrate a friends birthday!!I didn't know it was Sichuan fare but it turned out to be great. Be sure to get the early as they have a wardrobe where you can dress up in Chinese Dynasty clothing! Dishes were great too especially the Kungpao prawns which were huge and crispy in a tangy sauce. The fish topped with crispy bean bits was comforting as the fish was tasty and similar to the fish and chip quality. Finished with the stir fried glass vermicelli which was loaded with egg. Source
  3. Ever since I went to Swedish National day, I have fallen in love with Nordic food because I can relate to it. Discovered Rye House from another Swedish event where they were doing a collaboration with the Mäckish Girls a while ago during the weekend. After trying that, I was determined to come back to try the food from Rye House! There is so much on the menu and they have a salad bar as well. The reason why I can relate to Nordic food is that they use a lot of bread and potatoes which is basically the same as the diet in UK. Interestingly their snacks are really similar to us in terms of flavours and they also have this similar snack to Wotsits!! ========== Started with the Egg Pie which was on my mind since the first visit! This was so delicious because the pastry tasted like a thin crispy Ryvita tart filled with potatoes that were silky and viscous topped with creamy egg just like the stuff you get in egg mayo sandwiches. It is so comforting to see lots of similar ingredients like their prawn and dill filling which tastes just like our Prawn and Mayo filling but with dill in it. ========== Next was the Nordic Hash (Pyttipannu) , again a really simple but comforting dish that is good on a winters day. It was diced and fried cubes of potatoes that were fluffy and soft with a perfectly browned edge complemented by fresh organic eggs and pieces of meat. Basically a delicious dish that you can eat all day or for brunch. ========== Last but not least was the Finnish Creamy Salmon Soup . I loved it because it wasn't heavy with chunks of pink salmon and lots of dill. There was a little butter in it to give it that beautiful golden glow as well enhancing the taste. All was good and I was shocked that even their hot chocolate was so heavenly. Will definitely come back again. I appreciate the them using environmentally friendly straws which are actually real plant straws. Basically using rye straws for drinking which are biodegradable!

  5. Tried the [FUJIYA] Bake Shop Almond Brownie which turned out to be too sweet and dry. Source
  6. Happy Hour makes me think of drinks not wafers! Anyway, these wafers were ok but not memorable. Source
  7. OLW Cheez Doodles

    It was my first time try these Nordic Snacks and to my surprise, they taste and smell exactly like Wotsits!!! Source
  8. [Baby Star] Dodekai Ramen

    Basically [Baby Star] are a Japanese brand of snacks. This packet happens to be fried ramen that look like thick printer cables and that's it! Source
  9. Sustainable protein

    A while ago, some organization was promoting sustainable protein by giving away free ice cream topped with crispy insects which I did not try!!! Source
  10. Got these because I love Chocolate Teacakes. Chocolate Teacakes are basically biscuits topped with marshmallow and coated in chocolate. [Huntley & Palmer] Teacakes come with a twist because there is also caramel in the centre of the marshmallow! Unfortunately, despite the long history of the [Huntley & Palmer] brand, I found the chocolate too sugary and the caramel was strangely see through like it was mixed with gelatin. Source
  11. As weird as it looked, I picked up a bag of [Iced Lemon Tea] flavoured crisps by jack n jill. I didn't buy them but there was this other weird strawberry flavoured crisps which I shall post later when I have time! Source
  12. Calbee Jagarico (Jagariko)

    Again I can't read Japanese but after googling this, it turned out to be Salad flavour with Carrot and Parsley. I like these because they have that usual starchy potato taste and you can definitely taste the carotene taste in this but not much of the parsley. Cute barcode! Source
  13. La Famille is a famous for its soft and dreamy Chiffon cakes. I remember going to their cozy joint in Tai Hang. They now have more to offer including these pretty jelly cakes with flowers in it. For Christmas, they have launched three cakes for Christmas. Each Christmas cake is quite different, personally I prefer something simple so chose the white one which has the signature chiffon cake inside smothered in delicious Hokkaido cream with fresh strawberries. This cake will be available from the 17th but as it was my friends birthday they were able to make this cake. The taste was as good as expected with the pairing of fluffy chiffon and dreamy cream.

  14. Thank you Kee Wah Bakery for sending me a a big box for Christmas which was filled with sweet treats. There were panda cookies!! HK85 A Christmas tree tin filled with nougats, cookies and cookies. HKD88 A Candy box. HKD55 All these can be found at any branch of Kee Wah Bakery and if you buy them in sets you get more discount.

  15. I never would have guessed Prohibition was a great place for steaks and drinks. It is located in the new hotel next to Ocean Park which is right outside the MTR station. There is a lovely pool beside it. You are greeted by a bar where you can have drinks before or after dinner or even with your meal. The drinks are instaworthy and there are more on the menu to be discovered. As well as steak, there are lots of fab food so it is best to go in big groups and they have long tables to accommodate. Started with the Scallop Ceviche which was on a bed of refreshing mango lime sauce. Next was the Lump Crab Cake with (yuzu and cod roe tartar sauce). A must when having steak, there was so much chunks of crab in it. The Beer battered prawns with Lime chili sauce were really comforting because of the batter and the fact they look like the sweet and sour prawns you get in English style Chinese takeaways and Chinatown! I absolutely love pastrami so the Pastrami meat platter was a real treat with pickled pearl onions and refreshing gherkins. For soup, there was Seafood chowder which was loaded with seafood with a strong lobster bisque taste. The moment we were all waiting for had arrived!!! STEAKS!! We had the USDA Prime bone-in Ribeye, one was rubbed with 28 days bourbon & oolong tea dry aged, while the other one wasn't. USDA Prime bone-in Ribeye There was 28 days bourbon & oolong tea dry aged The aged version was more intense in flavor yet it was juicy and tender. The Canadian certified angus beef Porterhouse was my personal favourite because you get the tenderloin and strip either side of the bone. The tenderloin is my favourite part. The sides we had were mac and cheese, creamy spinach and loaded mashed potatoes which really completes that steakhouse experience. To finish, we had the Flamed Alaska. By far this is the best Flamed Alaska because the icecream inside was good especially the pistachio icecream and the meringue on the outside was like thick marshmallow goo. Will definitely be back for drinks and more beef!! [Prohibition] G/F (Portion C) at Club Wing, Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel, 180 Wong Chuk Hang Road, Wong Chuk Hang Source
