  1. Named just a word different from Vida Rica Bar, the Vida Rica is an elegant restaurant featuring a spectacular affair of the South China Sea and Nam Van Lake. Providing all day services, it has intimate seating with the perfect interpretation on modern cuisines from the Executive Chef. While there is contemporary breakfast, the menu highlights classic cuisines impacted by delicacy and clever twist using the freshest ingredients. Recently, the Mandarin Oriental Macau has hosted a guest Chef Stephane Buron, who heads two Michelin-starred restaurants, won several culinary awards and was named "Chef of the Year" in 2013. His stay at MO Macau has brought us a taste of his six course degustation dinner menu as well as four-course and five-course lunches at the restaurant that features his signature fine dining dishes with wine pairing. They include a roasted pigeon breast and poached sea bass. Started off with a refined presentation of amuse bouche, it contains element of molecular gastronomy with mashed green pea pearl and herb sherbet. A warm basket of assorted bread are also given along with different choices of homemade butter and spread, from plain to chili, they are all neatly displayed. The arctic char fish carpaccio has become one of our favourites, plated in circular pattern, with beautiful edible flower petals and a refreshing complement of yuzu-like sudashi sorbet. The two mains impress very much indeed. While the white sea bass is poached perfectly flaky and moist, dressed with delicious truffle veal jus over a bed of semi-mashed potatoes, that piece of crunchy fish skin is especially worth noting because it has given a wonderful contrast to our palates. Another favourite is definitely the roasted pigeon. As one of the Chef's signatures, it presents an excellent tenderness, juicy and is seared to pinkish interior. This dish is out of this world. Our five-course meal is completed with a sweet resemblance of the mont blanc. The creation combines traditional mont blanc with French macarons - chestnut puree and whipped cream over crispy macaron, this picture perfect dessert is very astonishing. Some rounding off would be petit fours of madeleines and mini lemon tart, in addition to a cup of well-executed cappuccino. This is probably the best world-class feast from a Two-starred Michelin Chef.

  2. Beef and Liberty is a leading joint from Shanghai, a place where you can experience the best burger in Hong Kong. Spending most of the time creating their perfect hamburgers, the restaurant serves also a bit of craft beer, classic side dishes and some daily special depending on seasonal ingredients. Such as the heirloom tomato salad, it is made with fresh and colourful trio tomatoes from a given source.Some favourite starts are few slabs of fall-of-bone pork rib that have been glazed with delicious honey barbecue sauce; the chicken wings are also deep-fried perfectly crispy with excellent sweet and spicy kick.Aside from the tomato salad, three daily specials would be scotch eggs, chili cheese fries and goat cheese salad. The thick-cut fries are drenched with a mess of cheesy meaty goodness, whereas the fried goat cheese is lightened up with chopped beetroot and salad leaves. The scotch eggs have notable runny quail egg yolks wrapped with juicy pork meat, which is surely a top dish from the bullet board.Given the burger patties are made with beef collected from Cape Grim farmers in Tasmania, all natural, grass-fed and hormones-free. It is hence more leaner, rich in omega 3 fat as well as no antibiotics. They made their hamburger patties fresh everyday at their open kitchen, grill to customer desired doneness and serve within house-baked buns. The kind of custom white sourdough is neither dry nor soggy, unlike any other burger joints, they keep a golden brown crust and spongy bottom.From selections of meat to vegetarian burger, the breaded chicken is made with lean chicken breast whilst the chili patty is filled searingly hot and meaty. Favourites are the black pepper burger and vegetarian burger. The former one combines juicy, smoky and peppery patty, sweet caramelized onion and melted raclette cheese; and the latter patty made with chickpeas and fava beans is surprisingly crisp on the edges, possessing great texture. Being a proud of the restaurant, the signature skillet cookie with pouring hot cream has given the most daringly decadent end. Not to mention that additional criss-cross cookie batter covering a few dollops of fudge brownie. The eton mess with fresh strawberry, strawberry coulis, meringue and whipped cream is also a specific dessert to try at Beef and Liberty! Truth to be told, it is the best location to satisfy a hamburger-beer obsession.

  3. Godiva - Some Japanese Editions

    Godiva Tarte Glacee is a spread of ice cream and sherbet over butter tart. Encased by Godiva's premium chocolate selection, these tarts are only found at Japan for the time being. The matcha version is a combination of Uji matcha white chocolate, with layers of orange lemon sherbet which gives a refreshing aftertaste. Similarly, the hazelnut has chocolate praline combines with yuzu sherbet, with milk chocolate in between. Another seasonal edition exclusive to Japan is sables chocolate. Knowing that Godiva in Hong Kong has recently launched the sables, some kind of chocolate dipped cookies, the Japanese version are shortbread sandwiches with chocolate filling that comes in colourful flavors. Think like Earl Grey & Milk Chocolate, Coffee & Milk Chocolate, Pistachio & White Chocolate. These crispy butter sand cookies with smooth Belgian chocolate is a popular sell among locals.

  4. Greater China Club is the latest membership club situated at Lai Chi Kok. In spite of its less convenient location from the Island, it has presented an amazing fine dining restaurant where worths to go ahead. The Cantonese Restaurant at the club is executed by a Michelin 3 Star Chef, who has achieved various culinary awards and worked at a Michelin 3 Star hotel restaurant - The Eight. The menu covers an extensive tailor-made dim sum, delectable seafood as well as a few Royal Thai dishes. A refine presentation of the marinated abalone has highlighted the start of this epic dim sum feast. It is displayed over cold flame, with pomelo meat and dressing that have both given the plump abalones a refreshing touch. Featuring some excellent techniques and skills, the mini salmon-shaped puffs are stuffed with salmon cheese filling, whilst the crust is made perfectly crispy and buttery. One of the popular orders are surely the adorable three little pig. With authentic chewy glutinous dumpling and delectable Iberico pork, these piggies are must-order. The innovative Hawthorn puddings have completed a surprising and qualifying meal. Without a doubt, this is where to enjoy the best quality, service and authentic Cantonese cuisine.

  5. Ganko がんこ - Quick Japanese Meal

    This Japanese chain is cheap and reasonably good. It serves contemporary Japanese food ranging from single to multiple sets with appetizer, soup, entrees of sushi, sashimi and tempura combinations. Conveniently situated at Dotonbori food street, we come in for a quick fix before heading to the airport. A sushi set comes with 10 sushi and 2 mini rolls; a plate of tempura and miso soup. The sushi are not anything special but pleasantly looking and tasty. The tempura is much appreciated as it is served with dipping sauce that has been added with generous grated turnip. A special a la carte of mackerel fish sushi comes in an order of two pieces. Wrapped with slightly salted kelp, a kind of seaweed, topped with marinated mackerel fish fillet over portion of Japanese sushi rice. This combination is rarely found in Hong Kong and hence making the first bite surprising and interesting.

  6. Mimiu 美々卯 - Calling For Udon-suki

    The renowned Udon-suki was started at Mimiu Honten. This restaurant has their main branch located at the center of Osaka, and from there to Tokyo, it has more than 10 outlets around Japan. Opening at a convenient location, we unintentionally walked in to Mimiu at Hanshin Department Store, where is just right opposite to our hotel. The Japanese style seating give us good impression as well as the friendly waitress who has explained everything with an English menu. Serves only what they think is the best, the menu includes multiple dinner courses, signature udon-suki and soba noodle. Each comes individually with an appetizer, sashimi, udon or soba, dessert or fruit. The appetizer turns out to be mayonnaise dressed salad topped with a few pine nut. While the sashimi fish are promisingly fresh, a platter of tempura is also deep fried using fish, prawns and assorted veggies. We also loved the simmered herring that is flaky fish fillet cooked in sweet soy sauce. Highlight of the meal is surely the Udon-suki, which is basically udon hot pot. Stock is poured into the big pot, followed by udon, chicken meats, cabbage and prawn. By the end of it, taro and rice cake are added. To note that they have very pretty utensils such as the little rabbit toothpick container and sea shell spoon, it is a very surprising Japanese dinner afterall.

  9. Social Place 唐宮小聚 - A Fake Truffle

    Once again, I am back here for a no MSG Chinese dinner at Social Place. There is always a reason for returning the same restaurant, whilst this time is for their famous truffle buns. Basically a steamed bun stuffed with mushroom fillings, fluffy with an aromatic centre. The shrimp dish is my second favourite of the night. The size is as large as regular prawn, glazed generously with a citrus yet slightly sweeten and thick lemony sauce. The roll of beef is so tender, succulent, and coated with an extremely crispy layer. It is perfect to serve with the come along curry sauce. The boneless chicken wing is also a popular order here. The black balsamic has indeed added a distinct flavor and served with two skewers of grilled pineapple for a decent plating. A new dessert, chilled green bean cake, is in fact filled with red bean paste, which is equivalent to the one I had at The Dining Room.

  10. Angelina Paris - Mont Blanc Obsession

    The Paris originated tearoom, Angelina, has been on my wish list since her launch in IFC Mall. The exquisite and vintage design has made here one of the best cafes with some sense of romanticism. Not to mention their gourmet confectioneries, make sure you come in daytime, unlike me, for more options. The iconic pastry, Mont-Blanc, with a twist of praline has been uniquely made in the Angelina paper cup. It consists of crunchy egg white based meringue, stiff cream, sweet praline center and most significantly, the swirl of chestnut puree. Personally I think it's has the correct sweetness provided that many comments criticized on it. The choux pastry, named after two countries, has great butteriness, chewy and filled with a ferrero rocher like praline cream. The pecan has added extra crunch to this impressive dessert. The famous hot chocolate that is made with three kinds of qualified cocoa should not be missed. With its distinct thickness and chocolate sourness, the hot chocolate is exceptionally fulfilling and you might imagine drinking a cup of chocolate ganache. I highly suggest to share between the two. Angelina Paris Mont-Blanc Praline Meringue, light whipped cream with a praline cream heart, chestnut cream vermicelli, gingerbread slivers Paris-New York Choux pastry, pecan praline light cream, crunchy pecan praline Old-Fashioned Hot Chocolate Whipped Cream “L'Africain" Angelina Paris Address: Podium 3, IFC mall, 8 Finance Street, Central, Hong Kong Telephone: 3188 0842 Opening Hours: 10-00-22:00 Website: http://www.angelina-paris.fr/ / https://www.facebook.com/angelinaparis.hk Source
  11. This Michelin star dim sum specialist has been ranked on the top list since then. Given that they only serve a limited number of Cantonese dim sums at the restaurant, there must be something that brought up the popularity. First, it is their signature - baked barbecue pork bun. The bun, with a sweet crust, is so fluffy and stuffed with sweetened char siu pork. The filling is not gluey and paste-like but with real bites of bbq pork. Follow by the tender spare ribs seasoned with traditional black bean sauce. The chicken feet also have soft and chewy texture, braised in soy-based abalone sauce. The grilled capsicum is stuffed with fish paste, which is perfect to serve with sweet soy sauce too. Lastly, we have a basket of steamed shrimp and veggie dumplings, wrapped in crystal-like wrappers that are glutinously soft and translucent.

  12. Tracing back to the old days, Aberdeen was a floating village associated with the fishing industry. It is likely to find fresh seafoods and recently there's this new restaurant popping up around the small town. Y M Kitchen offers local home cookings, as well as various seafood depending on the season. A recommended dish is the crispy beef brisket. The coating of crisp is surrounding the tender beef, which is served along a sweet and chili dipping sauce. Their uniquely small mantis shrimp is flavored with typical salt and pepper, making it an insatiable dish. As their seafoods are mostly catch upon order, the fish is unsuspectedly fresh even it is just steamed with julienned orange peel. The seasonal veggies are also very comforting when cooked with soft beancurd and ginkgo. Don't forget to come by the old main street for your next visit to Aberdeen!

  13. Their name says everything. Patisseries made with passion. The signature Mont Blanc is made with a generous swirl of chestnut puree, hiding within is a layer of light cream and egg white meringue on top of a simple not-so-buttery crust that is filled with milk chocolate ganache and passion fruit curd. The noticeable sweetness is indeed well balanced by the citrus passion fruit. Although the mille feuille is made with very crispy and caramelized puff pastries, the caramel pastry cream is too sweet to my liking whereas the vanilla layer is not creamy at all. To add on, the cafe also serves salad, sandwiches and amazing French Baguettes!

  14. Big Fernand - French Burger

    I'm not a fan of burger. But when I get a burger, it must be a good one, just like the Big Fernand. It is a French burger workshop that sells burgers in their homemade French style, from beef, lamb, chicken to vegetarian. A second major ingredient, cheese, is not those typical cheddar, but a variety of French cheese. The little combo comes with one of their hamburgers, freshly made French fries and a drink. The fluffy sesame buns are made with my choice of medium rare beef, pinkish flesh, juicy, tender, a piece of absolute crispy bacon and sweet caramelized onions. Not only the melted French cheese does not have a significant saltiness but intensively stinky, the combination is just out of this world! I'm looking forward to my second visit!

  15. Have you ever been confused between Lin Heung Tea House and Lin Heung Kui? I do. Even so, they actually have the same serving style, same authentic Cantonese cuisine and are so crowded during the afternoon. Dim sum trolleys and huge bamboo baskets are rolling across the floor, waiters are certainly unfriendly and less likely to serve you well. Coming to the food, even though the shrimp dumplings are seemingly small in size, it turns out that the shrimp fillings are generous enough. The so-call “dry steamed” beef look like a traditional basket of shao mai, which is served along Worcestershire sauce. I especially love the beancurd roll filled with fatty sparerib and soft fish maw. It is basically another version of chicken beancurd rolls. Regardless of the appearance, the duck leg wraps are indeed flavorful, dressed with sweet soy and stuffed with some kind of salty ham. An order of steamed buns is a must for every dim sum visit. We got the sesame paste buns with comparatively dense and less generous filling, whilst the bun itself is fluffy and slightly sweet. So as the Ma Lai Go that is standing impressively tall on a small plate, extremely soft, puffy and the brown sugar has given it the perfect sweetness.

  16. TGIF. We should start off the weekend with something impressive! How about a giant souffle? At Tai Ping Koon, where it is renowned for, is an oldish European restaurant that serves Hong Kong style western meal. So often their sets come with daily soup or salad, a bread roll with Anchor butter. The main is this pomfret fish, cooked in deep coloured sauce and smoked with aromatic tea leaves. The garoupa fillet is just an ordinary cutlet coated with generous bread crumbs, served along a miracle whip dressed potato fruit salad. One of their signatures is the little pigeon. While they claimed to be prepared in their own style with swiss sauce, the slightly sweet but salty sauce, which I expect to be thicker, has unfortunately turned out too thin. It is not viscous enough to coat the pigeon entirely. The set meal comes with a complimentary daily dessert - Chinese egg pudding topped with red beans. In fact, a TPK meal should always end with the GIANT baked souffle. The enormous pile of egg white is baked into a fluffy interior, a burnt and cakery crust, retaining an extremely eggy aftertaste. And trust me, it will be too much for two pax to share.

  17. Tai-Parfait 鯛魚芭菲 - Taiyaki Sweet

    From Taiwan, Singapore and Indonesia, the perfect Taiyaki has finally launched in Hong Kong. They serve Taiyaki with choices of red bean, custard and green tea fillings, and topped with frozen yogurt or ice creams in form of parfaits. My choice is original tangy frozen yogurt, with a sweet and fresh strawberry drizzled with caramel sauce, topping on the fish-shaped cake, which has crispy exterior and a fluffy pancake-like interior. While it is freshly made with custard filling, it is simply delectable. So as the original froyo with honeycomb, but stuffed with red bean instead. Despite the fact that it is located at the food court area, this cafe or take-away shop definitely worths a visit.

  18. Kinsale - Seaside Brunch

    Along the promenade by the waterfront, there is this European restaurant. It has an open plan, a hip cocktail bar with welcoming services. The restaurant is kid-friendly, which include kid's corner in their menu, and serve up family-focused brunch at the weekend. For something light, we order one of their signatures, the crab cake. It is obviously made with lumpy crab meat, breaded generously with crumbs and fried to golden brown. The mayonnaise and pineapple salsa have contributed as a sweet and light refreshment. For eggs, or in other words, the egg royale has fatty smoked salmon topped with perfectly poached eggs, the yolk is extremely runny and the hollandaise sauce has been made to the right tanginess.

  19. Vida Rica Bar - FANtasy Tea

    Mandarin Oriental Macau has recently launched a new afternoon tea set at their upper level bar, named FANtasy. At the Vida Rica Bar, we are accommodated with an exquisite view of the Macau landscape and also a quiet environment. Two skewers of citrusy sorbet are first served over cold flame as welcome refreshers. Followed by the three wooden tiers savories and sweets. The panini has its formal grill marks but just a bit too dry on the edges and soggy in the middle due to a spread of mustard. Similarly, the chicken sausage roll in puff pastry is just average. While I especially love the soft squid ink bread with pinkish and tender wagyu beef, the smoked salmon over a beetroot toast also gives a scent of sweet note. On the top tier, besides the chocolate lolly with raspberry mousse, I would prefer the lemon slice with citrus lemon curd more than the chocolate one. Not to mention it is a really dense and fudgy double chocolate cake, the financier also has an obvious taste of almond garnished with pistachio cream. The champagne jelly is so strong that the rose has been completely overwhelmed by the wine. Some raisin and bacon scones are also prepared with the orange passion fruit jam, raspberry rose jam and honey. In addition, we order their signature mille feuille. It is undoubtedly gorgeous, with crunchy caramelized puff pastries layered between excellent pastry cream that contains real Tahitian vanilla pods. It is a perfection. The afternoon tea set ends with a 70% hot chocolate. The hot chocolate with specifically high cocoa content are of course bittersweet, smooth but milky at the same time. This is a great day to spend at MO.

  21. Jin Ying 金映閣 - 24 7 Dining

    It is no doubt that City of Dreams is one of the popular resorts in Macau. Since there's a casino, some restaurants must operate 24 7, such as Jin Ying. Similar to North at Sands, it is located within the casino but there is a family entrance that allows underaged individuals to dine in. Tonight we have a simple and warm to soul fish slices congee, which comes with spring onions and some crispy chips. The braised pork ribs are surprisingly tender and with a perfect ratio of meat to fat, regardless of the somewhat thicken sauce and totally unrelated vegetables, it's indeed a dish that has been excelled to almost perfection. This is a great place for a late night meal.

  22. The Eight 8餐廳 - Michelin Stars Dim Sum

    As one of the Michelin 3 Stars rated restaurants, this upscale restaurant, with a privacy atmosphere, serves delightful Cantonese, Huaiyang cuisines and also classy dim sums in the afternoon. Every meal starts with an amuse bouche, which are diced beef fried with black pepper, pine nuts and a mini abalone served with pomelo jelly. Some signature dim sums including the goldfish dumplings with fresh and succulent shrimp fillings, are served in a silver metal steamer. The golden tartlets have buttery crust and generous crabmeat cooked in Portuguese sauce. The purse puffs are also presented wonderfully in a long platter over cucumber slices, filled with flavorful river shrimp and minced pork. We also ordered a deep fried sole fillets that is extremely crispy and seasoned well in salt and pepper. Last but not least, the snowman bun has her head filled with red bean and coconut whilst her body is my favorite custard and bird nest! It is so deliciously adorable! We are also served with Chinese petit fours, a cup of overly sweetened milk tea and gluey duo sesame mochi rolls.This dim sum lunch is simply amazing! 8 The Eight Tea Pot Black Pepper Beef Nest 黑椒牛仔粒 Abalone with Pomelo Jelly 柚子蜜鮑魚仔 Steamed Cristal Blue Shrimp Dumplings in Goldfish Shape 藍天使蝦金魚餃 Steamed Cristal Blue Shrimp Dumplings in Goldfish Shape 藍天使蝦金魚餃 Baked Tartlet with Crabmeat in Curry Sauce 葡香焗蟹撻 Puff Pastry with River Shrimp in Purse Shape 河蝦肉鬆手袋酥 Deep-fried Macau Sole with Spicy Salt 椒鹽龍脷仔 Bird's Nest with Egg Custard and Red Bean in Snowman Shape 燕液雪人包 Bird's Nest with Egg Custard Filling 燕窩奶皇 Petit Fours 餐後甜點 Milk Tea, Black & White Sesame Rolls 奶茶, 黑白芝麻卷 The Eight 8餐廳 Address: 2/F, Grand Lisboa, Avenida de Lisboa, Macau Telephone: +853 8803 7788 Opening Hours: Mon-Sat 11:30-14:30, 18:30-22:30 ; Sun 10:00-15:00, 18:30-22:30 Website: http://www.grandlisboahotel.com Source
  23. Arome vs Maria - The Egg Tart Battle!

    The egg tart battle is here! Who makes the best egg tart? I personally favor short crust more than puff pastry crust. And the criteria for a good egg tart should have a thick and rich custard, a yellow eggy interior with hint of sweetness. A favourite of mine would be from Maria's Bakery. The silky and sweet egg custard is not overwhelmed by the slightly salty short crust pastry. Another new favorite is the Hokkaido milk egg white tart from Arome Bakery. The egg white tart has been reheated in the oven for 10 minutes, resembling a sloppy milk pudding inside a buttery cookie crust.

  24. Jasmine Place 怡翠軒 - Dim Sum Palace

    Crowded. Very crowded on a Sunday afternoon at Jasmine Place, another restaurant presented by the Maxim's. The puff pastries stuffed with honey char siu pork is freshly baked with a piping hot filling and served on a beautiful platter. From the traditional bamboo steamer, this bun has my favourite sesame paste filling leaking like molten lava, it is undeniably scrumptious! And finally, the gooey jelly roll gives an aromatic sesame aftertaste, very light and refreshing.

  25. Maxim's Cake 美心西餅 - 3.9 Milkiness

    Hello Cow Cow! Recently, Maxim's Bakery has come up with a series of Organic Australian Milk Cakes. The use of 3.9% milk content organic milk makes the cream filling extra creamy and delicious. The milkiness is so unexpectedly luscious, smooth and perfectly sweet. Even though the chocolate area, made with natural bamboo charcoal powder, could be more pronounced, the egg white sponge is light, fluffy like a pillow. All in all, this is not a bad one. 3.9 Australian Milk Cake Roll 3.9 澳洲朱奶卷 Bamboo Charcoal Chocolate Cake, Egg White Sponge Cake 竹炭黑朱古力蛋糕, 鬆軟蛋白蛋糕 3.9 Organic Milk Pudding, 3.9 Organic Milk Cream 3.9 有機牛奶奶凍, 3.9 有機牛奶忌廉 Maxim's Cake 美心西餅 Telephone: 2743 3711 Website: http://www.maximscakes.com.hk / https://www.facebook.com/hongkongmaximscakes Source
