  1. Yeah,很快又到最後一篇上海遊記;雖然我們訂的航班是傍晚18:10,不過酒店吃的玩的都多,這天都是留在嘉里酒店/嘉里城吃喝玩樂,然後就直接出發去機場,乘搭夜機回港。文末,還會有爸爸製作的影片全紀錄呢~ 我們農曆新年去旅行的經歷不算多,就只有大阪、檳城(過年前)及上海這次;如果 Budget 鬆動,去日本當然最不受春節影響,怕冷的可去星馬泰等熱帶地方,而國內地區的確年三十/初一有不少商店關門,但初二又回復了正常,而且很有過節氣氛,實在是有弊又有利。 初一早上餐廳面臨人滿之患,初二早上就正常很多,便約同爺嫲在酒店樓下 The Cook 一起嘆最後的自助早餐。我們住宿的計劃已包2位成人早餐(住客6歲以下幼兒都不收費),散客惠顧則是¥268/位,不算便宜但內容的確很豐富! The Cook 廚 是酒店主要的全天候自助餐廳,設有13个開放式操作廚房、芝士屋、葡萄酒窖、咖啡吧,及果園熟食店等等。 早餐時段不是13區全開放,但現有的選項都夠嘩然了:以飲品為例,除了多款純果汁,又有即製草莓奶昔、芒果奶昔、雜莓/鮮橙 Energy Booster,加上枸杞花茶、超多款式的咖啡/茶包等,有選擇困難症的最好不要走過來! 麵包、酥餅、蛋糕、水果、沙律、凍肉、芝士、穀物也比樓上選擇更多,要試完根本是沒可能啦~ 然後是多個按菜系分區的熱食,包括中式(提供豆漿、油條、飯麵、包點甚至是小菜)、燒烤(早上改為飲品吧)、印式(早上改為 Egg station)、馬來(早上專做即煮粉麵)、日式(早上改為粥區及酸奶)、西式(包括即製 pancake、waffle 等),十分豐富!加上還未開放的區域,可以想像這裡的午/晚市食物有多豐盛~ 食物實在太多,故以上只是簡介;也由於來吃的人多,不想等大檯的我們這天決定與爺嫲分開坐,而下圖就是甜魔家的第一輪,夠豐富吧? 都是同一廚房出品,其實食物水準大致與樓上一樣,水果及酥餅類都好吃,我們都忍不住要 encore! 而且樓下又有財神派利是給小朋友,利是中是他們最愛的金幣朱古力,逗得兩隻都喜孜孜的歡喜不得了~ 而在外邊又有年糕製作(其實初一也有,但太多人我們沒去),這天Matthew也嘗試參與其中,並表示十分好玩! 吃飽飽,兩兄妹又要去放電啦~ 是的,反正不想遠行,我們退房前最後一次用優惠價進場大玩兒童冒險樂園 Kid Adventure Zone。 來到第三天,妹妹進步驚人,不但獨個走吊橋,又試滑了藍色滑梯(詳情可見 總結篇 的 影片),之後還重複玩了5-6次之多,勇氣可嘉啊~ 爸爸及Matthew更大膽試玩了紅色魔鬼滑梯;爸爸玩後表示十分驚驚,Matthew卻非常大膽,接二連三又玩了數次,絕對是青出於藍! 而最開心還是一家人一起滑彩虹滑梯的時光,這三天下來,我們一家在這條滑梯加起來肯家滑了一百次以上,有多好玩不言而諭!更多影片,可見文末的影片~ 早餐吃太飽關係,玩完兒童探險樂園,我們還出去玩多會室內跳彈床(免費開放給房客,還有卡通片播放,以及釣魚遊戲玩),才去吃最後的遲來午餐。 午餐又去了嘉里城,選了上海小南國。大概是新年期間,餐廳的茗茶特別貴,最便宜也¥198,我們寧願選飲西瓜汁 (¥98/扎);其他食物則是正常價。 老公及爺嫲都愛吃的回味鴨舌 (¥49),應該味道不錯,不過我沒試了~ 味道一點比不上圓苑的 外婆紅燒肉 (¥79),不過中間加了不少百頁,那倒是相當不錯,而且醬汁較少較適合小兄妹吃,因此又點了兩碗白飯來拌。 帶點辣意、十分惹味的干煸鮮筍刀豆 (¥49),又是送飯良伴,而且難得怕辣的爺嫲也喜歡愛吃。 我的心水則是飄香樟茶鴨 (¥89),鴨肉十分鮮嫩、香口而多汁,配上鬆香酥化的薄餅,實在十分美味啊! 吃了米飯關係,大家對這蔥油拌麵 (¥12x2) 不太吃得下,其實味道不錯的。 這次旅行吃了兩回生煎包、一回蟹粉小籠,這次要客基本的鮮肉小籠包 (¥36),皮薄湯鮮,又是不錯,貫徹了「上海的小籠包」都是好吃的印象~ 還有姍姍來遲的石鍋雞湯燴手工蛋餃 (¥98),雖然遲,但蛋餃兩兄妹都非常愛吃,而底下清鮮的雞湯粉絲菜絲也十分合胃,巨大的一鍋最後也清得八八九九呢。 最後還吃了一整鍋八月桂花酒釀丸子 (¥39),這個非常好吃而且份量極足,我可是非常努力幫襯、吃了又吃的!很飽的一頓埋單¥600有找,的確比香港店便宜一截。 也貼一張小南國對面書店的照片,並讚一下這佈置真的很有feel,像去了倫敦街頭啊~ 豐富早餐加上豐富午餐後,原本是打算拿嘉里酒店的免費世紀公園門票(住客到concierge就可免費取得)再去逛多次公園,呼吸新鮮空氣。 但小兄妹看到酒店 The Brew 酒吧外有室外彈床,住客又是可免費享用(即使check-out後也可以),於是又去了玩,而且一玩又是半小時! 時間差不多三點,再去世紀公園似乎有點趕;於是將門票轉贈爺嫲(他們遲一小時起飛),然後就提早搭的士去虹橋機場了。回程也算順利,乘的是大機可以一家四口一起坐,兼有 in-flight entertainment! 文末也送上爸爸精心製作的影片,正好為這次上海之旅來個完滿句號;為了收錄更多親人合照,影片比平日較長,敬請耐心收看: 最後,雖然這次旅程也算愉快,不過對於未能暢遊朱家角、蘇杭一帶,還是有點小遺憾。其實國內值得經歷的地方,很多很多,希望未來能多抽時間兩口子深度探索一下!

  2. 今天是初七,先祝大家人日快樂、心想事成;同時繼續送上新春上海探親之旅-Day 4 大年初一的遊記!這天天氣又回復清朗,我們連同姻太翁、太嫲去了豫園/外灘行大運,還重訪了十分美味的上海老飯店,非常滿足! 住宿嘉里閣行政套房是包早餐的,地點可選地下 The Cook 廚,或是三樓 Club Lounge。初一早上,The Cook 人多得要緊,我們還是在樓上享受一下輕鬆氣氛好了~ Club Lounge 的早餐不及正式自助餐廳豐富,這是肯定的了,不過選擇也不算少,果汁就有四款之多;除了切件西瓜、鮮橙、火龍果、哈蜜瓜、蜜瓜、菠蘿,又有香蕉、柑桔、龍眼、腰芒、霧蓮等等! 西式的麵包、芝士、酸奶、穀物選擇也非常豐富,另一邊連沙律菜、日式壽司卷、凍肉火腿、比高包等等也有供應! 最後還有中式的包點、蔬菜、西式腸仔,以及魚丸湯麵等選擇。至於燕麥粥、水煮蛋、太陽蛋、水波蛋、Egg Benedict、自選奄列、炒蛋,還有白粥、魚粥、雞肉粥、豬肉粥、牛肉粥、雲吞湯麵、豬肉蒸餃、牛肉湯麵、竹筍菜麵等可由餐單自由選點。 加上自選咖啡/茶,就促成豐富美好的大年初一早餐!與華服小兄妹來張合照後,我不客氣了~~~ 這裡的水果十分高質,特別是火龍果清甜無比,是最愛的打底食物。酸奶也是非常的好喝,其中味全那款支裝酸奶,一早一晚都必會喝;蛋類就有好有壞,可選熟度的奄列做得不錯,但 Egg Benedict 就有點鐵石心腸了~老公又點了牛肉湯麵,也不錯! 吃飽飽,拍張賀年照,就會合爺嫲一起乘地鐵去行大運了!由於豫園那邊太多的人,不好開車/打的,我們約了姻親在豫園站4號出口等。 起初花木路上車時人都沒幾個,我們還可以在站內慢慢合照,後來卻越來越多人,情況可媲上下班時段的金鐘站!去到豫園後,更加覺得上海有一半的人都來了這區! 成功會合姻親、開始行大運前,先來補充一點資料:這天參加者與 Day 2 的團年飯一樣,都是我們一家四口,加上爺嫲,及弟嫂父母(姻太翁、姻太嫲),至於弟弟及弟嫂,仍在澳洲安心養胎,不過我們定期有視像通話的! 對於首訪上海的老公,豫園是他首次接觸上海古風的一面(新天地不算啦...),所以特別興奮起勁,又忍不住掃了店頭的羊肉串 (¥15)。 不過,由於人太多,而姻太翁又剛好遇到熟人可以幫忙安排,之後我們又提早在老廟黃金銀樓對面的 上海老飯店 午餐,之後再繼續逛豫園。其實,早餐+羊肉串還飽在心口了! 也罷,多年來一直想念上海老飯店的八寶鴨,這天可以重溫也是美事。姻太翁、姻太嫲記住了兩兄妹愛吃西蘭花,一來就點了一味三鮮西蘭花,真多謝他們的心思心意! 這裡的熏魚也甜香好吃,比 圓苑 的有水準很多,我忍不住吃了三大件! 還有漬青瓜、四喜烤夫(又是非常好吃)、炒草頭,全都挺有水準,當然最重要還是八寶鴨:加了糯米、火腿、蝦仁、蓮子、板栗等等材料,以濃油赤醬炮製的全鴨,很夠火候而滋潤豐富,最難得是美味不膩滯,讓人越吃越想吃,水準仍保持當年勇,難得難得! 之後還有松子黃魚,醬汁不會太稠太搶,酸甜味自然也十分討好。 還有傳統上海風味的蟹粉小籠包,據說是與南翔小籠包同一個餐單做的,比樂天/鼎泰豐的出品個子較大,皮會稍厚,但勝在湯汁實在超甜又鮮,兩口子各不客氣吃了三隻! 最後還有要花一小時製作、姍姍來遲的濃湯鮰魚,鮰魚是款非常鮮嫩的河魚,一般是紅燒為主,當然會較膩;這天選以濃湯下饌,蘿蔔及筍片均令鮰魚滋味更美好豐富,而魚鮮又讓濃湯變得鮮美可口,最後當然連湯帶魚全部吃/喝個清光! 很高水準又飽足的午餐,是此行最滿意的一頓,再次感謝姻親們的安排了!也附上兩兄妹的一些照片,特別要好好看Chloe,因為吃了太多西蘭花+鴨肉,太飽的她之後很快就睡了.... 還好推了車來,反正人多,就等她好好的睡,我們幾個大人緊緊捉住Matthew,慢慢前行好了~ 一出來人更多了,進豫園路上還有不少警察在維持治安,特別是前往「九曲橋」路上,更會實行人流管制,人太多就會封路阻止更多人進場。 雖然很逼同時又要小心捉緊Matthew,不過過新年這樣行大運的確很有氣氛,當然整個豫園滿佈新春佈置也是原因! 終於要上九曲橋了,也是全個豫園最擠人的一段路~為食的甜魔媽媽又忍不住分享:整個豫園區,除了上海老飯店及南翔小籠包滿有名氣(後者平日閒閒地也要排一小時才有小籠包吃!),綠波廊也以巧手點心馳名。這天當然沒胃納再訪了! 上橋了:湖中有大量的花燈,與環境是否配襯見仁見智;但十分熱鬧就是真的,橋上遊客包括我都邊走邊拍! 路上不少人都在投幣,希望將幣投在花燈上,帶來好運。Matthew也跟住一起玩,正好將那些不知如何用的零錢、分錢都投掉,不錯嘛! 單走的話,5分鐘最長8分鐘也走完整條九曲橋了;想逗留久一點,順便吃茶歇歇,我們就來了橋中的湖心亭喝茶。 新春元寶茶每位索價¥98起,並不便宜,但可以上樓以高角度欣賞花燈,又可細細欣賞樓下人流轉,實在是件寫意美事~ 樓上人客也不少,起初我們要坐中間檯,要等待別的客人離開才轉到窗邊位子呢~ 雖然貴一點,不過這裡的茶的確好喝,而且又附送好吃的麻糰、柑桔、先澀後甘的欖果,的確是上好的享受。對了,大家也趕緊趁這機會上洗手間,始終外邊人多又亂! 在樓上給Matthew及兩位嫲嫲拍下合照後,也是時間推著仍然熟睡的Chloe離開了~ 其實豫園也是購物手信的好地方,不過這天人實在太多了,最後買了巨大花型棉花糖給Matthew,我們就離開了 由豫園出走經過世紀公園,很快就是外灘。路上老公叫我拍下這滿檯酸奶的一幕,說是證明內地的酸奶特別好喝! XD 再穿過魚池,江對面的上海中心已經清晰可見了!而在江這邊則是充滿歐陸風的建築群,兩邊各有美態,我們邊走邊拍了好多照片~ 拍這張合照時,Chloe還在睡,大概前一天玩太累了,這位小公主真的很能睡呢! 睡公主終於也醒了,也趁機拍了一些小兄妹與爸爸的互動;很明顯兩父子之間較愛玩耍,而父女間則甜蜜又冤氣! 不知不覺,我們由十點半已經逛到四點半!老人家及Matthew都累了(很快上了妹妹的車睡熟了!!!),雖然外灘的夜景其實更加的美,十分值得一看,但還是回程吧~ 回程選擇搭渡輪,大人小孩一概¥2,人又是多,而且船上的玻璃窗有點髒,看景不算理想,不過也是好玩的體驗。 下了船,不熟路的我們找不到地鐵,還是找的士回去吧,不過就要弄醒Matthew了。還好這天他的精神好了不少,證明玩樂能醫百病,哈! 爺嫲都累了,決定買外賣回酒店吃;大年初一,我們也懶到外邊逼,傍晚 Club Lounge 吃簡單點心當晚餐好了。 重點是讓小兄妹爭取時間去兒童冒險樂園玩嘛,特別是Chloe,明顯努力儲了一下午的電,要來這裡大爆發了! 這個紅衣孖辮妹,明顯的電力十足,媽媽追著她跑了拍了半小時已經累壞了;還是爸爸聰明,一早選到另一邊的 Kerry Sports 健身,不是講笑,他分分鐘沒我這邊累!=P 也拍一張Matthew,這天他已經可以自己一個(之前要人抱住玩)去玩藍色滑梯了,非常大膽! 其實呢,Matthew及媽媽都很累了... 玩了將近2小時,最後出動朱古力雪糕(樂園內有售,¥20杯還挺香濃好吃呢)成功將Chloe引誘離場,才終於可以回房休息~ 在上海最後一晚就這樣過去了... 明天就是離開日,也是上海之旅終結篇! 上海老飯店 地址:上海市黄浦區福佑路242號 電話:+86 21 6311 1777 湖心亭 地址:上海市黄浦區豫園新路豫園老街257號 電話:+86 21 6373 6950 延伸閱讀: 2016 Penang Trip with Chloe : 三口子遊檳城 : Summary ☀ 2017 Shanghai Trip ❀ 新春上海探親之旅 ❀ 總結篇 2017 Shanghai Trip 新春上海之旅:卓美亞喜瑪拉雅酒店+圓苑+夜遊浦東 2017 Shanghai Trip 新春上海之旅:世紀公園+新天地+蘇浙匯團年飯 2017 Shanghai Trip 新春上海之旅:團年夜在嘉里城+浦東嘉里大酒店 ** 想收到兩小兄妹的最新消息,可以like一下Matthew and Chloe fanpage哦~~
  3. 只要選對設備完善的酒店,農曆新年去旅行其實很爽,回來後還有時間慢慢寫文!很快來到上海之旅第三天的遊記,這天是年三十晚,也是上海市給霧霾籠罩的一天;幸好我們預訂了浦東嘉里大酒店,全天留在酒店及接鄰商場內吃喝玩樂,並不受天氣/空氣質素影響~ 對於帶著小兄妹的我們,霧霾絕對是令人擔心的問題;所以我們一早想好,天氣差就盡量留在酒店/室內,也因此預訂的都是5星酒店。這天一早起來,見到天色不對,馬上將Chloe安放BB車上,推一個帶一個到對面 Family Mart 買了早點後,便溜進 嘉里城 Kerry Parkside。 與前一天的藍天相比,完全是變天了! 內地的酸奶真的很美味!熱包點也不錯 其實前一天我們正正幫襯了 嘉里城 的 BreadTalk,這天則來繼續逛商場其他角落。它是嘉里集團旗下的大型購物商場,有不少生活化/玩具/童裝品牌進駐,如 H&M、Gap、Calvin Klein、Godiva、Lego、MothersWork 等牌子,十分適合家庭客去逛。 商場正式營業時間是10am,但一早就開門可進去逛;我們先在場內新年佈置拍一下照,然後又逛一些小店,順便找一下午餐/晚餐地點,原來這裡的選擇也不少呢! 下圖是老公很感興趣的 巷弄里的那家川菜,不過扶老帶幼,最後還是放棄了。 甜品選擇也有不少,其中我們被 Secret Recipe 的榴蓮飄香蛋糕+綠茶芝士蛋糕吸引了,買了兩件來吃,其中榴蓮那款大大件又好吃! 一邊逛時我一邊聯絡新酒店確認房間已經 ready,趁小兄妹在B1層看玩具看上了癮,我們便拜託爺嫲先照看他們,我與老公就回去卓美亞收拾並 check-out,然後就來 浦東嘉里大酒店 check-in 了。 這次轉酒店,除了是想體驗嘉里酒店,更重要是設備十分完善,除了室內暖水池,又設有佔地7,000呎的兒童冒險樂園,以及6,000呎的 Kerry Sports,遇上壞天氣/新年期商店關門,足不出戶也不會悶著。酒店又與嘉里城接連,這天小兄妹完全不用再外出,便抵達新住宿點! 新的嘉里閣行政套房比之前更大,分為寬敞舒適的獨立起居室,以及空間十足的大床房;房間是當代亞洲風格、優雅大氣,180度的景觀十分開揚優美。 起居室設有舒適書桌,這天下午趁兩兄妹午睡時,媽媽我也打了一陣文章;房內又有新鮮水果、朱古力,以及 DIY 杯子蛋糕組裝,全都很得媽媽/小兄妹歡心! 至於爸爸,就最愛這 Mini Bar;與前一間酒店一樣,雪櫃及酒吧內首輪飲品/食品都是免費享用,要補充才會收費;除了頂層的茗茶及 Nespresso 咖啡,老公又不客氣飲了王老吉及幾支迷你酒辦! 起居室又設有額外坐廁,加上睡房的主浴室,絕對不會有爭廁所的問題了! 主臥室也非常巨大,溫度清涼舒適,King size 大床的羽絨被也輕身舒服。最迷人是窗外景觀,好天時可斜望陸家嘴一帶的金融中心! 大型大理石浴室的設計現代感十足,配有玻璃隔離浴缸及獨立淋浴間,洗浴品牌也是 L'OCCITANE,而小客人還會有鴨仔/小童洗浴用品/小童涮口杯/小童牙刷及腳踏! 在睡房另一端還有梳妝台、大衣櫃,裡而備有大小客人的浴袍、拖鞋、浴衣,又有夾萬、雨具等等,總之是應有盡有。 對於新房間,兩兄妹都十分滿意,忍不住又爬上床跳跳跳,然後又一起擺出「大心」的姿勢,甜蜜開心不得了! 更樂是酒店又為小客人送來併圖、扭計骰、貼紙及糖果,兩兄妹更加樂壞了~ 兩兄妹發揮創意,將先前買來的綠茶芝士蛋糕加上裝飾後,差不多也是時間吃正式午餐了。 先看看窗外狀況:天氣還是不行,霧鎖浦東,世紀公園及陸家嘴都不太望得到,還是不要外出為妙,就留在嘉里城午餐吧! 之前在商場看中了這間 金古鎮湯團,就成了午餐地點。 這裡的鮮肉小雲吞不貴(印象中廿多元)又好吃,值得一試;不過蟹黃小雲吞就很腥,鮮肉大雲吞則很實,一點不推介。 Matthew 始終愛吃米飯,給他點了一份豬軟骨白飯套餐 (¥45),味道不錯,Chloe也來幫襯了不少。 這份原為妹妹點的番茄牛腩湯麵 (¥38),反而更多落在媽媽及爺嫲肚子中,味道也OK的。 爸爸則主要吃這老干媽辣拌麵,辣度頗足,他吃得很過癮! 最後加上鹹鴨蛋、清炒西蘭花,以及寧波小湯圓(主要目標),至少在三十晚吃了湯圓、感覺完滿團圓,然後又趕回去玩兒童冒險樂園了! 要前往兒童冒險樂園必須先穿過 Kerry Sports 健身中心,當時兩口子都訝異了:這中心怎麼地方那麼大,設備又那麼多?很多兩口子才第一次見,真的可媲專業健身中心呢~ 之後來到重頭戲的兒童冒險樂園 Kid Adventure Zone;這超大型的樂園平日收費應該挺貴,但作為酒店房客,只付¥50就可供一大一小進場無限任玩!樂園是 single entry,但裡面有免費清水提供,又有乾淨洗手間,以及定價不貴的小賣部,玩上半天也不是問題。 放好鞋子又將物件放進儲物櫃後,急不及待要開始玩樂囉!首先是5歲或以下的幼兒區,Matthew掹車邊可以玩,對Chloe就是非常重要的熱身點,熱好身後再去挑戰彩虹滑梯。 中間有六幢 Cafe、Post office、Fire station、Market、Petro-serve、Bank 小屋,全是兩層式設計,小朋友可爬樓梯到上層去玩樂器/玩具,設計十分有趣。 而樂園的主角,還是這2層樓高的滑梯區,小孩可在繩網上自由攀爬、穿越障礙,更可以挑戰驚險有趣的彩虹滑梯、兒童藍色波波池滑梯,以及僅限七歲以上人士的紅色魔鬼滑梯。 Chloe從來都是謹慎人士,起初不敢爬繩網吊橋,後來見哥哥爬了多次,終於鼓起勇氣成功挑戰!場內繩網吊橋還有傾斜的繩網吊橋,之後兩天妹妹更分別試爬上斜吊橋,甚至是挑戰下行的斜吊橋,十分叻叻~ 多道滑梯中,最得兩兄妹歡心的是大小皆宜的彩虹滑梯。這滑梯必須使用麻布袋下滑,既保護了玩家,又可減少摩擦力,玩起很有速度感,兩兄妹每天都玩廿次以上,三天下來玩了不下半日次! 除了圖像,也送上媽媽與妹妹同滑的小影片;如是首次滑行,感覺都幾驚險又刺激呀!由後來爸爸給我們拍的合照中,媽媽的表情也可見! Matthew比較大膽,還挑戰了只限兒童使用的藍色波波池滑梯;這滑梯的斜度接約75度,膽小的也未必敢玩,像Chloe首兩天都完全不敢靠近。Matthew就成功挑戰了很多回。 但最驚險的,還是要數這幾乎成90度垂直下降的紅色魔鬼滑梯,畏高的爸爸一點不敢試! 媽媽見到不少較大小朋友成功挑戰後,也鼓起勇氣滑了三回;起初的確很害怕,但踏出了第一步就好;巧妙設計下,滑行者下降時並不會受傷的~ 一家人一玩就是兩個多小時,小兄妹當然不敢走,後來勉強以「暖水池很漂亮很好玩」為理由,強行帶走他們,並引誘他們回房(要換泳衣),繼而哄他們午睡2小時!貪玩的小孩心裡惦記泳池,5時多就醒了,好吧一起真的去游泳~ 進入泳池前先到更衣室換泳衣,見到裡面 Jacuzzi、Sauna、Steam Room 一應俱全,超想馬上跳進 Jacuzzi 泡一泡;可惜上海之旅與早前 吉隆坡玩水之旅 剛好隔一個月,又是同一原因不能去游泳(或去做 Spa,其實這裡的 Spa 也挺吸引),好討厭呀!> < 位於5樓的泳池,由溫度廿多度的兒童池、標準成人池,以及一個約40度的 Jacuzzi 組成,外面還有室外遊樂場,玩的並不少!玩膩了兒童冒險樂園(雖然不太可能)的可以一去。 天冷加上空氣不好(傍晚已經改善了些),當然沒有出去玩,兩兄妹主要在0.5米深的兒童池玩;水不太深,媽媽我也可以進池去拍些照片。 爸爸就主要去泡40度 Jacuzzi,看著也覺得超爽!可惜這天只能進去泡小腿。如果下次有機會再去,我發誓一定要去躺著泡個夠! 由泳池還可以清楚看到卓美亞酒店,我們由5時多玩到6時多,回房快速梳洗後,又趁晚餐前到了 The Club 嘉里閣行政樓層 嘆 Happy Hour。 The Club 環境很美,由17:00-19:00 供應的冷熱食物款式不算少,要吃飽也不是問題;約了爺嫲一起吃年夜飯的我們,志不在吃而是喝,因為不同款的紅、白、烈酒,加起來超過十多款,酒鬼老公很喜歡,我則專攻不同口味的酸奶。 小兄妹也吃了一些包點及水果,然後去嘉里城會合午睡完過來的爺嫲。年三十的商場有如死城,99%的商店都關門了,正當我們打算回酒店餐廳用餐,就見到唯一仍在營業的 鶴越面。 不太餓的我們點了一份豚肉海鮮烏冬、一份溫泉蛋燒汁豚肉飯,以及一份溫泉蛋擔擔辣烏冬;其中兩份轉成連沙律、壽司的套餐,再散點一客腐皮壽司,以及一份吉列炸豬排。 按道理這裡是主打烏冬,不過屬於博勝殿集團的它,整晚最好吃卻是吉列豬排,鬆脆不油好好吃,連同上的菜絲沙律也份外清新,加點麻醬好好吃。 能夠人齊吃上一頓溫暖飽足的年夜晚,當然要合照留念。事實上我們8點離開之時,也是餐廳關門之時,大家都要回家過年了! 吃得太撐了,睡飽了的爺嫲決定上來我們房間嘆茶消滯,兩口子趁有人看管小魔,就溜到樓下去健身。 下午已經溜出去玩了一輪的爸爸,對設備讚不絕口,帶我試做了不少器材,部分如滑浪機、爬樓梯機、滑雪機都十分好玩。又是那句,看片吧~ 之後再上房,一家人看看春晚節目,差不多十點才解散,各自回去休息,因為竪日還約了姻親去豫園行大運呢~ 慶幸空氣及天色都在晚間慢慢好轉,猴年最後一晚臨睡前,還可以拍到漂亮的浦東夜景呢! 就是這樣,我們一家在上海過了年。明天,再接著分享雞年大年初一行大運片段吧! 浦東嘉里城 Kerry Parkside 地址:上海浦東新區花木路1378號 網址:浦東嘉里城 Kerry Parkside 浦東嘉里大酒店 Kerry Hotel Pudong, Shanghai 地址:上海浦東新區花木路1388號 網址:Kerry Hotel Pudong, Shanghai Facebook:Kerry Hotel Pudong, Shanghai 延伸閱讀: 2016 Penang Trip with Chloe : 三口子遊檳城 : Summary ☀ 2017 Shanghai Trip ❀ 新春上海探親之旅 ❀ 總結篇 2017 Shanghai Trip 新春上海之旅:卓美亞喜瑪拉雅酒店+圓苑+夜遊浦東 2017 Shanghai Trip 新春上海之旅:世紀公園+新天地+蘇浙匯團年飯 ** 想收到兩小兄妹的最新消息,可以like一下Matthew and Chloe fanpage哦~~
  4. 繼續分享 Day 2 遊記:這天可算是行程重點-4大2小一起探訪姻太翁姻太母(弟嫂父母),雖然之前素未謀臉,但大家卻竟一見如故,當日一起共進午餐及晚餐,十分愉快。我們還抽了點時間去世紀公園/上海新天地散步,也留下了美好的回憶~ 由於我們訂的套票都不包早餐,早上起床後,就約好時間一起外出找吃的。由圖可見第二天的天色非常不錯,不過始終是年廿九臨近春節,很多小店已經關門,找吃的要到嘉里城 (Kerry Paradise) 內的大商店了~ 由卓美亞酒店過去嘉里城只約5分鐘路程,不過可能前一晚睡得較晚(等到的士回到酒店已十點多,梳洗後11時才睡!),換上華服的兩兄妹都睡眼惺忪呢~ 但還是一早醒了沒法子! 結果去了 Breadtalk 買麵包,6個麵包連一支酸奶、一杯咖啡,總價 ¥94,不算便宜,但還是沒香港貴,而且麵包個子也稍大一點。 其實該 Breadtalk 有環境不錯的堂食位,不過我們反正有時間,決定進上海世紀公園嘆早餐!世紀公園位於浦東新區花木行政文化區,東鄰芳甸路,南臨花木路,北靠錦繡路,佔地面積140.3公頃,是上海市中心區域内最大的城市生態公園。 從來都欣賞又羨慕倫敦/上海肯在市內劃出那麼大的地方當公園,進園要買票就買吧;何況票價很便宜只¥10/人,小孩及70歲以上老人還完全免票,我們6個人只買了3張票就進場了。 不是垃圾而是枯葉。其實是想拍小草中的莓果! 相比中國其他城市,上海人算很有文化、修養;然而始終外來人多,公園實行象徵式收費是好事。早上氣溫較涼,我們找了有陽光的位置坐下吃早餐,兩兄妹都滿意自己所選的麵包! 甜魔媽媽則特別喜歡欣賞這款 Yogurt drink (¥18),質感較稠感覺很足料。不知何解國內的乳酪都特別美味,之後幾天都一直在幫襯! 吃完早餐,離約定姻親的時間還有個多小時,我們又往公園裡走走看。天氣好就是不一樣,以下照片基本上都沒怎修圖,拍出來已經很美了~ 好像有點印象,但又不太記得的金盞橋。總之在橋上留影,是美的! 好奇看魚的Matthew 由於橋上風景不錯,特別請途人為我們4大2小來張大合照;但陽光有點太耀眼,出來完全不是想像中一回事呢!XD 反而嫲嫲在爸爸指引下拍的全家福,效果還可以~ 世紀公園真的很大,我們走了肯定沒有一半,連公園內的湖邊也沒走近。沒辦法,以前在這裡都是租單車去踩園的,不過5、6號閘這邊又沒單車可租,只靠雙腿又帶著小孩走得不遠。 一家人在綠草如茵的園內,連早餐前後逗留了約一小時,一直去到近 Amusement park(有一些機動遊戲)及種植地,又差不多要慢慢回歸,因為約了姻親11時在酒店等呢~ 回程時有隻大肥豬發矛要人抱了.... 也只有爸爸才揹得起這隻豬,回程路上辛苦了! 回到酒店取了禮物,然後就乘搭姻親準備的車輛,出發到他們浦西的家了。途上兩隻小豬還補眠了半小時呢! 除了碩大清甜的士多啤梨、飽滿清香的柑桔,姻太母又準備了超豐富的家常菜:紅燒肉、海蜇頭、上海滷肉、上海熏魚、爆炒河蝦、炒上素,質素不差飯店,還有一大籠清蒸大閘蟹! 以為大閘蟹過了期不會出色,但結果每隻都爆膏,點上浙醋好好吃,我及老公每人都忍不住大吃三隻,太滿足了!!! 也超愛以新鮮齊菜包的上海雲吞,那香味實在引人非常;還有八寶飯,以及來不及拍的、但清鮮令人傾心的醃篤鮮,又是忍不住連來三大碗! 吃飽了,兩兄妹沒多少耐性,即使爸爸努力抱著Chloe(又來超肉緊...),還是忍不住要跑開!算了,其實我們都太飽,索性去新天地逛逛囉~爺嫲就留在家裡休息。 在姻親教導下,我們重新去學習搭地鐵。由於很多人已回鄉,地鐵的人流不多,就是要學懂轉車;這天轉了一次車,就順利抵達新天地站了~ 以前讀書時,是十分喜歡新天地這區的,覺得特別的有氣質又漂亮。事隔十多年,卻已進化成為一個商圈,又建成了新天地朗廷酒店。 雖然商場及酒店都建得漂亮,但不多不少也影響了原有的古樸風味,只能說,已經不是我以往喜愛的新天地。可能回到重慶新天地,還能找回那一點感覺! 還與舊日印象一樣/相近的,只剩一些未看見高樓/彩色商標的巷弄了。一場來到,也拍些照片留念吧;不過受了風又睡不夠的Matthew開始不舒服,所以都是拍Chloe多~ 可愛的新天地妹妹 小兄妹都逛累了,就找個地方吃下午茶去;附近西式/泰式酒吧都不合意,見到這來自台北的哈肯舖-手感烘焙,就進去買兩兄妹最愛的包包給他們。 為了好看只拿了兩個麵包及一杯飲料去拍照,其實當天買了三款包及兩杯飲料。上圖的楓糖包最好吃、超有口感;Matthew的芝士火腿酥也不錯,大大個的墨西哥包就正常,整體都算滿意。但咖啡及 Hot Valrhona chocolate 都不濟,廿多元杯又要等,絕對不值! 雖然妹妹又電人,但其實兩隻都累壞了;由新天地直接搭的回酒店讓他們小睡一下後,夜晚再搭的去聯洋廣場的蘇浙匯,會合四老吃團年飯。 抵達時已經一滿桌的菜,原來姻親竟點了17個菜(我們才6大2小啊...),說是預吃團年飯,一定要豐富!這是特色鹹雞 (¥58),靠妹妹清了大半。 糖醋烤山藥 (¥22),首次吃又甜又酸的山藥條,口感有點似淮山,很有趣。 桃仁雜糧沙律 (¥28),樣子平平、但中間的脆合桃、紫薯為沙律增添香脆/粉糯的口感,加起來十分吸引,兩口子都超喜歡吃! 招牌黑叉燒 (¥42),當然我還是會投港式叉燒,但這味道及肉質都還不差。 佛門素鴨 (¥22),包得好看,腐皮夠薄嫩味道也好,份量還很足(拍照時已吃了幾件)。 糖醋小排 (¥42) 醬汁不過多,微香微甜加上不太肥膩的小排,是幾吸引的。 清炒鳳尾蝦 (¥268),好吃但定價有點高,姻親真是太客氣了! 清蒸鰣魚 (¥328) 也是貴,但肉嫩味鮮,香蜜鹹甜兼有之,水準極高、值回票價! 還有足廿兩的芝士牛油焗龍蝦 (¥656),龍蝦肉質嫩甜,但芝士醬稍有點太搶;其實要吃這個,應該等他們來香港再吃,還是那句,姻親太客氣了! 秘制牛肋骨 (¥198) 以內地標準來講牛肋算不錯,但實在太飽吃剩了很多要打包。 XO醬榆耳爆肉片 (¥88) 也香口惹味,但真的吃不下太多。 火腿醬炒松子蚌片 (¥138),蚌片很薄身、爽口好吃又不膩,這個忍不住吃了很多! 姍姍來遲關係,對這火瞳全鴨 (¥328) 本來打定輸數;但一嘗之下,鴨湯鹹濃美味不得了,當中小棠菜更帶來清新嫩甜小撞擊,加起來非常好吃!結果給清得八八九九~ 押尾還有清炒西蘭花 (¥28)、濃湯蘆筍 (¥58),其實我甚麼都吃不下了... 只有靠小兄妹清西蘭花了! 最後還有多汁香脆的上海生煎包 (¥44),以及很好吃的棗香椰糕 (¥54),這頓團年飯,實在是破紀錄地飽肚滿足,謝謝姻親了! 也貼一張大合照,雖然合照中缺了Matthew(還在車上睡呢...),但也是個美好紀念。 聯洋廣場還有一些給小孩玩的 Playhouse 及 Little Gym,不過兩兄妹都累了,特別Matthew有一點不適,晚飯後還是早早回酒店~ 回到房間,就收到酒店送來的炒米水,以保溫瓶窩心呈上,一共有兩份呢!十分感謝,不過明天就要 check-out,轉到更多玩樂設備的新酒店。明天再續~ 世紀公園 地址:上海市浦東新區錦繡路1001號 新天地 地址:上海市黄浦區新天地興業路123弄 Hogan Bakery 哈肯舖 手感烘焙 地址:上海市黄浦區新天地興業路123弄102-103號單元 蘇浙匯(聯洋廣場店) 地址:上海芳甸路300號聯洋廣場C區3樓(近迎春路) 延伸閱讀: 2016 Penang Trip with Chloe : 三口子遊檳城 : Summary ☀ 2017 Shanghai Trip ❀ 新春上海探親之旅 ❀ 總結篇 2017 Shanghai Trip 新春上海之旅:卓美亞喜瑪拉雅酒店+圓苑+夜遊浦東 ** 想收到兩小兄妹的最新消息,可以like一下Matthew and Chloe fanpage哦~~
  5. 事不宜遲,馬上展開上海遊記~ 天父太疼愛我們家了,一如以往,這次旅行很多細節位都蒙祂保守賜恩,良好的天氣及氣溫就是其一!還有其他的總總,後面一一分享吧~ 在總結篇說過,我們的航班時間是12:30,原本可以慢慢出發;但為了與爺嫲在機場也能碰上一面,就提早出發,其中大隻仔Matthew也幫了很多的忙! 在機場會合,又不嫌長氣再一次教爺嫲搭飛機後(他們出遊的次數始終不多,這好像是他們首次單獨搭機呢...),就要告別了~ 那麼早到的我們做甚麼好呢?今次發覺香港機場的 WiFi 改善了很多,上網/玩手機、買杯咖啡美食、帶小孩到 Gate 23 的 Kid's area,時間很快就打發掉了~ 新年期間 Delay 是常事,去程由12:30改到12:50,後來更延至13:30才起飛,還幸機程也算順利。這是我們第二次搭港航(對上一次是三亞),有 Hot meal 提供但味道很一般,去程細機也沒有 in-flight entertainment,這點還是 CX 優勝。 抵達虹橋機場後,很快就完成入境又領了行李,最棒是的士站不用排不用等;同時可能很多的人已回鄉,由虹橋去浦東的路上很快很順利,約40分鐘不用100元就抵達 卓美亞喜瑪拉雅酒店。爺嫲預訂了專車接送(約$600會貴一截),一早就抵達了~ 以5星酒店來計,卓美亞不算貴、裝修別致同時服務挺不錯,如 check-in 時提供熱茶,小孩有糖果包拿,更棒是每天都會抽出數位幸福房客,我們這次就給 upgrade 去行程樓層! 我們的樓層在19樓,爺嫲的正常房則在16樓。除了房間較大、景觀較開朗,設備及洗沐用品都有不同。 一進門,老公說是「博打爛」的高級花瓶 XD 令人嘩一聲的行政大房!先看睡床,是標準方型 King Size 大床,一家四口都睡得舒適~ 床的兩邊都有床檯,翌晚酒店人員就是在此送上窩心熱暖炒米水! 大衣櫃內應有盡有,連拖鞋也十分柔軟舒適;旁邊的梳妝台是掩門設計,除了風水原因,更重要是與整個房間配襯吧! 浴室大的可以,洗手盤也有兩個,洗浴室同時設舒適大浴缸,以及花灑淋浴(Rooftop shower 也有,但完全沒用過)。有浴鹽關係,每晚我都往浴缸裡泡! 這裡洗浴品牌是 L'OCCITANE,與後一間 Kerry 一樣,但這裡供應的是特別芳香迷人的馬鞭草系列,我少有的將2晚後用剩的帶了走,準備接著的小旅行用。 坐廁讚的不得了,是溫暖廁板呢!在冷冷的天氣下,這樣的廁板會令我很留戀呢~ 起居廳也十分的大,爺爺來到後說:晚上來睡沙發都夠了!!!廳中央備有新鮮水果,是一般客房沒有的。 房內也設書檯,並有三角插座及USB直接充電,十分方便。窗簾是按鈕機動啟動,並分為兩層可以好好遮光。 雪櫃內的飲品可以飲用,上面又有 illy 咖啡機,以及別緻茶杯套裝。全房唯一的小缺點是原設的空調不足,令人感覺焗促,後來開大了就好。 然後看爺嫲的普通客房,好歹也是5星酒店,其實房間也不算差,浴室又是挺大,還有一個小偏廳;不過相比行政套房,感覺自然差了一截,連洗沐品牌也不一樣。 興奮的參觀客房後,時間已是5時多,要出發去浦東晚餐及觀光。我們4大2小首程塞在同一的士內,但之後都是分開坐較多,始終兩兄妹遠超同齡小朋友,實在太胖又重了!!! 十多年沒來上海,還停在「要上金茂看明珠塔」的觀念,原來遊客現都改去更新更高的上海中心了!天氣冷有點餓了,還是先去晚餐吧。 金茂大廈旁的金茂生活館新開了 圓苑,這店的名氣挺大、風評很好,連蔡瀾也曾推介,這晚就跑去吃;食物是不錯的,但新開關係上菜很亂,然而價格不高可以一試。 一進店的裝修十分骨子,不過我們給安排坐有景觀的窗邊。 奉茶的茶杯小巧別緻,就是份量很小,口渴的要連連倒上很多杯。 圓苑最普名是紅燒肉 (¥118),濃油赤醬很有上海風味,肥瘦得宜、又夠鬆化的確好吃,馬上加點四碗白飯來吃! 白斬雞 (¥68) 是為愛吃雞肉的妹妹而點,沒想到前菜份量那麼大,最後也沒能吃完。 上海熏魚 (¥68) 做得乾身了,此後吃了很多間都比它好。 蟹粉粉絲 (¥118) 十分香口好吃,油潤度及濕度都是剛好,份量又足大家吃得非常愜意! 糟溜黃魚片 (¥128),魚肉很嫩很滑,滿有酒糟的香甜;配菜除了微爽木耳,又有香甜滑溜的蒸蛋白,我覺得不錯,但首嚐糟溜菜式的老公及爺嫲則不太吃得慣。 生煎包 (¥36) 上層軟熟、底層較脆,中間湯汁豐富,也好吃。 香菇素菜,忘了多少錢,總之香菇很入味又好吃,反而比小棠菜更快給吃光! 這裡上菜很怪,前菜的糯米紅棗 (¥32) 竟然姍姍來遲;還有一味土雞湯 (¥198) 則在上了果盤、叫了埋單才上檯,一早吃飽的我們當然不要了。 還好經理通情達理,笑笑道歉後就為我們取消了湯品,圓滿收場。大概是新店關係最後還有8折,折後只是 ¥500 左右,非常抵吃。 出來後又在商場的 中街1946 買冰條吃,這裡不同口味的冰條價格相差甚遠,我們先買了原味-牛乳 (¥8) 來試,奶味非常濃郁!不過質感並不算滑,吸引不到我們再買別的。 在陸家嘴一帶很難找車,問了幾個警察後,我們決定步行去東方明珠塔,順便也好好欣賞浦東的美麗夜景。 天氣雖冷(約2-3度),但穿了雙重羽絨+毛毛褸+毛衣+羊毛底衫+heattech+手套的兩兄妹不覺得冷,還玩得十分開心! 力氣很大的爸爸 搞笑父女照 也來三代同堂,以及少有的爺嫲合照吧!有點覺得,這晚最美也最開心的照片,就是上塔前的這批照片~ 還有夜浦東的美態,與香港中環感覺有點似,都是甜魔媽媽充滿回憶同時又十分喜歡的城市~(按:十多年前還在讀大中,有一個學期就是去了上海復旦交流!) 越走越近,差不多要上塔了!雖然票價不便宜,去塔頂要 ¥220 張(70歲及小童半價,另設上一半的門票),但一場來到總得上去看看~ 多年前還是窮學生的甜魔媽媽,當年也只去過金茂,明珠塔也是首次上來呢。 感覺裡面比較舊,這點香港的 ICC 瞭望台會美很多,大家都不是太起勁拍照,媽媽都懶懶地只用手機拍算了。 還好爸爸拍了一些不錯的照片,可與大家分享~ 其實比較有趣是走下一層的半開放式瞭望台,涼風吹進來我覺得很爽,畏高的老公卻覺得超級恐怖,哈哈! 其實明珠東方塔還有動態影院、水族館等可以看,但估計也是舊舊的不會精彩,所以逛完兩圈,前後大半小時後就離開了。下面有迪士尼商店及鐘樓,不過這次行程完全沒打算去逼! 由於陸家嘴是超難打的士的地方,我們等了大半小時才有車回去;後來重新學會搭地鐵,在旺區出入才比較方便。就是這樣,上海第一晚結束了。明天再分享 Day 2 行程~ 卓美亞喜瑪拉雅酒店 Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel 地址:上海浦東梅花路1108號(近花木路站) 網址:卓美亞喜瑪拉雅酒店 Facebook:Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel 圓苑(金茂店) 地址:上海浦東世紀大道88號金茂生活館31-05室 電話:021-68416368 中街1946(金茂店) 地址:上海浦東世紀大道88號金茂生活館3樓 電話:021-33680308 延伸閱讀: 2016 Penang Trip with Chloe : 三口子遊檳城 : Summary ☀ 2017 Shanghai Trip ❀ 新春上海探親之旅 ❀ 總結篇 ** 想收到兩小兄妹的最新消息,可以like一下Matthew and Chloe fanpage哦~~

Day 3 年三十:霧霾+嘉里城+轉浦東嘉里大酒店+兒童冒險樂園+團年飯 -這天上海被霧霾籠罩,陰暗有雲、能見度很低,我們不敢外出太久,早餐後就溜進 嘉里城 Kerry Paradise,中午轉去 浦東嘉里大酒店。 -新酒店除了房間更大,又有7000多呎的兒童探險樂園(房客付50元就可進場)以及室內恆溫暖水池,小兄妹一定不會悶 -年三十不少店子都關門,這天午餐及晚餐分別在嘉里城內的 金古鎮 及 鶴舞 解決,晚餐後兩口子還去了6,000多呎的 Gym 健身 Day 4 大年初一:Club Lounge 早餐+上海老飯店+豫園/外灘行大運+回酒店 -初一天氣不錯,早餐後出發與弟嫂家一起去豫園行大運 -豫園超多的人,但也份外有氣氛;再訪舊日很愛的上海老飯店,八寶鴨、鮰魚及蟹粉小籠還是那麼好吃。逛完九曲橋又到湖心亭品茶,感覺寫意美好 -由豫園走出來經過古城公園,就來到充滿歐陸風建築群的外灘;隔一條江即新式大廈林立,對比鮮明,是兩口子很愛的景點,流連到夜晚也願意~ -不過搭完渡輪後,還是選擇回酒店,因為兩位主子要玩兒童冒險樂園...!! Day 5 初二:The Cook 早餐+冒險樂園+上海小南國+跳彈床+離開 -最後的早上,一家人在 The Cook 嘆最後的大早餐,環境來講樓上較優勝,不過樓下選擇超豐富,新春期間可以整年糕,又有得拜財神拎朱古力金幣,很有氣氛 -最後一次去玩兒童冒險樂園,在上海小南國午餐後又去跳彈床,然後就離開了~ 明天將會送上 Day 1 詳細遊記,敬請密切留意~ ** 想收到兩小兄妹的最新消息,可以like一下Matthew and Chloe fanpage哦~~

  8. CIAO SUNDAY | PIRATA | HONG KONG

    Close to Christmas, I was busy but happy with so much spontaneous meals happened in the last few weekends before we were all out for long holiday. A lazy Sunday morning, embracing the rare bedding time, while the sunshine outside the window and the 'glo-glo' sound in our belly, dragged us out of the bed. Hunger pushed us to think about the evil brunch instead of light & easy breakfast at home; well, without doubt, aiming to try the new brunch spot (at least new for me), I was introduced the Brunch at Pirata. Just next to the door, which sounds perfect ever for laziness like us! Lovely open bar with a casual setting of dining area. A small inside stairs leading the way to another dining area downstairs. Fried Mozzarella Sandwich M.M.M. (My Mama's Meatballs) Eggplant Parmigiana Tagliatelle with Summer Black Truffle (add $38) I will call it a super-rich-Italian-brunch for the whole package starts from the unlimited cold station with cheese, salad, grilled vegetables, smoked salmon and some ham. Entering into the serious part, it is designed as an Italian way to have the primary (Primi Piati) and second course (Secondi), which covers almost all meat, fish, grain and veggie. To end, of course, it's the dessert selected by the Chef. Drink is not included, but I will highly recommend to order some refreshing mocktail (Appleberry Smash) for the girls or for you still in your hangover from the night before. Free-flow choice is available with a reasonable price, and by looking into the selected drinks, I would like to try next time :D Every ingredients were just fresh like directly out from the market with a paring fresh and modern looking. Like the Mozzarella Sandwich, it's just tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella, while we were so much enjoying that crispy from the edge of the toast and the creamy and cheesy taste from the floating hot 'liquid' inside! If I have chance to choose pasta, flat wide and pasta made with egg would always be my choice. Here we had the Tagliatelle with extra olive oil and parmesan cheese slides and truffle on top. Simple as the most, and very delicious. Two chef's choice dessert were amazing! First, our mouth was refreshing by the less-sweeten and less-creamy puddling (photo as on the top), then we were treated by the creamy and milky cheese dessert with nuts and caramel sauce. Each taste was just to the point, not too heavy and as the perfect ending for the whole Sunday morning.

  9. LOVELY SPANISH | QUEMO | HONG KONG

    We always get great surprise when we are not expecting in advance. It was a random weekday night, we had a casual dinner to wash off the whole day tense after the office. A garden-like and countryside decoration made our dinner place quite different and refreshing, even giving an illusion of the daytime is extending. We were lead by the lead here and was offered a short walk-around to the basic concept behind this new Spanish restaurant in Wanchai. 36-month Iberico ham was absolutely a must-try item, to have it with good white wine, or just to wake the tongue before feast. The ham was cut precisely from the different parts which leaded you from dry to fatty-rich. Among the tapas list, I was introduced the two way of oyster. Starting from the refreshing one fully covered by the beautiful mojito foam, the journey started quite romantic; coming back to the reality, I was not disappointed by the secondi (oyster) which was flavored by the olive oil and special tomato sauce, lifting up the taste a lot. The main course menu is designed to be quite balanced from the land animals to the fishes. I love the seabass deadly and almost 2 weeks after when I brought my friends there, I ordered it again without hesitation. The combination of the crispy fish skin and soft snowy-white fish meat was perfect and the lightly over-burned aroma of the fish skin was well matched to the lightly sweet taste of the fish. I also like the yummy baby spinach as the side-dish. Before we continued to the secondi (main course), we were introduced to the mouth-refreshing dessert which is a creative design by the Chef from Barcelona. It was a kindly of jelly dessert while the overall texture was balanced by the pudding layer. The transparent orange jelly made of LICOR43 was just awesome! Together with the Sangria snow on the top, it refreshed your mouth, throat and stomach immediately and apart that, offering a beautiful taste of alcohol. The seafood paella was a bit different from the one we were used to. It was more moisture and softened, more intense seafood flavor but less creamy. Dessert was actually the strength of the Chef here, for he’s studied and started from the sweet stuff at the beginning. We had the first one with coconut and mango brulee which was just perfect. The coconut cream pudding was not too sweet and the taste was quite refreshing by the mango brulee; also it was even a little bitter as the coco on the top. The second dessert was richer in the taste for the banana brulee and grilled banana slices, but no need to worry, because it was smartly paired with the ice-cream. All in all, Quemo is worthy for the visit regarding to the food, the drinks and their warm service. Also, they offer a little terrace for a tapas-and-wine night under the lights of Wanchai!!!

  10. Christmas month, everywhere was in a red-and-snowy mood. Mandarin Landmark started their new weekend brunch and afternoon tea menu in MO Bar at the beginning of happy December. The weekend free-flow Champaign (Moet) brunch was quite attracting. It is a 3-course brunch to be with the free-flow Champaign, house wines and all other soft drinks, tea and coffee; start from 12 noon till 3pm in the 4 weekends. A classic and cozy environment is always expected. Seated ourselves around half past 12, we were hungry and excited to start our lazy and romantic Sunday. The fresh and warm bread was arranged with the salty butter after we were just about to kick off the drinking plan. To choose from 3-4 starter choices, we picked up Angus beef tartar and lobster bisque. The soup was less creamy and intensive in the lobster sweetness. Tartar was presented in front of us by the waiter in black-n-white. The flavor was adjusted as our preference on pepper, salt, chili and oil, lovely! For the main course, I ordered the Lobster Egg Benedict and steak was my boyfriend’s choice. Besides, we had roasted vegetables and French fries with parmesan cheese slice as the side dishes. The Benedict is lovely yummy for the bite of soft lobster together with the eggy liquid egg yolk, while a bit dry would be the only downside I can discover. Coming to the last course, I was first quite afraid of over-filling by the cheesecake, while this time was pretty light and even refreshing. The chocolate tart with ice-cream on the top was amazing! A slightly bitter chocolate taste gave a pure and intense after-taste after each small bite, while the sweetness only contributed by the ice-cream. After Champaign, we finished with the perfect signature tea from MO Bar and the classic coffee. Such a wonderful day!

  11. Seorae opened the branch store in Wanchai recently and I was so excited and eager to have a try. It’s quite huge space with a flat and open dining area which is also occupying the whole floor. The waiter and waitress walking around there was all young people which seem to be equipped by perfect Korean and Cantonese. Impressive! The very interesting design of the BBQ plate was designed for the egg cooking (similar to tortilla). Such smart idea to cook the egg while not wasting the heat produced during BBQ! The special pork meat is their signature, which you could only get around 400g from each pig. The part is closer to the heart while it is said to contain zero fat. As to the taste, it was chewier while less meaty. The beef was absolutely beautiful, even from the presentation. It required very less heating time and turned out to be 30-to-70 ratio on the fat and meat. The grilled vegetable platter was huge in the potion, while I love the mushroom the most.

  12. SEAFOOD FEAST | 泰園 | HONG KONG

    We were quite wasted after the regular Saturday morning workout in friend's gym. Protein was the saver for me and my boyfriend that night before we continued the night activities with friends. Thanks for this new opening Thai restaurant in Wanchai, we got some energy to make night better! It was a bit strange that we found they were offering sashimi in the restaurant while the Thai style sashimi platter was even highly recommended on the special offer list of the resto. While, I guess it is always the market decides the resto's direction. Indeed, Hongkongers love anything related to Japanese food... I love the Raw Shrimp with a marshmallow texture. A normal and common Thai appetizer, while you have to make sure the shrimp is in its best condition to perform the taste in flavor and more importantly, in texture. They have done a really good job that night! Pattaya Style Grilled Cheese Tiger Prawn (new item on the separated menu) was just amazing. It was fully covered by the half-melted cheese where also offers a mixed and impressive coconut aroma. It was very filling, be careful! I was not very convinced by the 'steamed' way to handle the red curry dish... But I have to say the presentation of this new item (Red Curry Prawn) was romantic and beautiful. The steamed curry was actually made with coconut and egg. You could imagine the similar taste of steamed egg while it's seafood curry indeed! If you are interested but not too picky to the Thai seafood place, this would be a new place worth to try. 泰園3/F, The Hennessy256 Hennessy RoadWanchaiHong Kong +852 3746 9999 Mon to Sat. 12nn - 3pm & 6pm - 11pm Please give a LIKE to my Facebook Page !

  13. ICE & FIRE | GYUUZEN | HONG KONG

    This is my second time visit of Gyuuzen. Almost one year after, the restaurant remains exactly the same; the spacial dining area, simply but classic deco with a casual and quite localized vide. I was quite impressive by their rich collection of beef/wagyu set for the Japanese style BBQ, while this time, they have some fresh new items on the menu which is trying to catch the last freshness for this summer season. Sushi & Sashimi is the main role this night! We are not only 'spoiled' by the lovely taste and skilful cut, but also the beautiful presentation and layout of the dishes. After a bunch of Japanese appetiser, we KO a big Sashimi set which I'm not able to show the picture here... It covers the most basic raw items which are welcomed to most of the Hongkongers, more than that, they offer lovely shell-seafood. Personally, I'm still a big and loyal fan of tuna, whatever is offered in the same basket :P Following the Sashimi, we switch to some rice items ("Sushi"). The raw one is exactly what I mean 'beautiful' in the beginning of this post. It's a super balance and harmony of colors; a line of brightness and freshness; I feel my eyes even were fed up first. The hot one is awesome as well for those lovely lines going through the surface of the wagyu sushi and you could imagine how's the 'greedy' taste it has. Come to the main part, of course, we would kick out the black iron!!! The beef and seafood BBQ set is great. Beef selection from eye bone, shoulder, tongue till the leg; while the water part, covers white eel and lobster tail. Yes! We start from beef family for no reason. Well, I guess it is not 'allowed' the great and authentic flavor to be overwhelmed by seafood. Among the four beef parts, I recommend tongue and shoulder the most for their tenderness to the point without being over-soften and containing too much fat. Lobster tail is must-do item; I love the non-flavored natural sweetness and the super firm, chewy experience from it. For drinking, they have a short list of special drinking items which are similar to blended ice shakie drinks. Most of them are based on summer-welcome ingredients, like berry fruits, lime or even coconut. Apart from beer and Sake, it wouldn't be a second choice. Indeed, a good and valuable place to catch up with friends or family, and even just go with your lovely one for a worthy night! :D Gyuuzen Japanese Restaurant 1302 World Trade Centre280 Gloucester RoadCauseway Bay Hong Kong +852 2895 1313 Mon to Sun. 12nn - 3pm & 6pm - 11.30pm Facebook Please give a LIKE to my Facebook Page !You can also fine me on other networks through Home Page links.

  14. LAI BUN FU | HONG KONG

    The hidden 'kitchen' in the 18 On Lan Street, is quite a quiet space for the expats and business people around Central. A decent fine dining environment perfectly merged into the old-fashion of westernised Asian city. The dishes are dedicated by the mixed food materials from different places with a luxury background. Master Chef is a local-local, but with an experienced chef background worldwide; while I found the familiar cuisine style there as I was in Shanghai - a typical colony city style, like a hot pot, you can put everything inside and as time going, the taste comes out perfectly matched; and finally it grows to its own. Steamed Crab Claw with HUA TIAO Wine Sauce $160 / ps Impressive taste with a strong-to-the-point aroma from the 'romantic' HUA TIAO wine; meanwhile balancing the taste of the crab claw. The crab claw meat is perfectly firmed and with the lightest sweetness. Bird's Nest with Minced Chicken Soup $428 / ps Steamed Chicken Steamed Bean Curd with Scallop and Black Caviar $298 Recommend 2 main courses here with a more healthy and lighter manner, meanwhile, both look quite family-style but requires a sophisticated cooking skill. Liking the steamed chicken a lot, for its super smooth and soft meat texture, covered by a light layer of oil. The steamed chicken itself doesn't flavored a lot, therefore the meat conveys the most authentic flavor; while don't worry your tongue will feel boring, coz the sliced ham between the layers are just giving the missing saltness.

  15. OUTBACK STEAKHOUSE | HONG KONG

    Outback Steakhouse must be a shared memory of most of the Hongkongers. A good deal of US steak set with a large potion of green salad, unlimited black-sugar buns and a cup of red soup. On the top of order, a devil dish of cheese fries and another fatty yummy cheese-cake or chocolate cake with a big ball of vanilla ice-cream. The new concept shop of Outback Steakhouse is open in Mongkok East, the renovated shopping mall. Enjoying a good city-view, the restaurant is also renovated with a lighter, younger and fresher atmosphere setting. Some HOT dishes are kept but meanwhile with a new face, such as black sugar bun (to be with homemade cream dip), the cheese fries with smaller but more decent presentation; and the most amazing 'onion flower' which has a layer of spicy crispy skin and a moisture taste of semi-melted onion inside. DIY fresh juice (Apple & Carrot) The new concept is also covering fresh-made drinks, which I love the fresh juice (Red ? apple + carrot; or Green? celery + ?? :P) To be a bit more refreshing, the smoothy-like coconut berry drink would be my 2nd choice. Another input of healthy dining concept is brought out by new salad choices. Tropical Mango Chicken Salad ($132) would definitely a good option for its balanced taste with lightly roasted chicken breast and fresh mango slices. A hint of champagne honey vinaigrette would be a hidden additional to the whole dish. Meanwhile some small bites are also offered during weekday's tea time. Fire Grilled Sweet and Spicy Wings ($48 / $62 as Tea Set price with a selection of tea, coffee or soda drink), would be my first recommendation, for its attractive flavor with a sense of honey-sweet and spicy hot; the creamy dip at the side, would be another 'subside' treatment. A dinner / lunch in Outback, of course, cannot miss the signature steak set. Porterhouse, a USDA approved large cut on strip and filet tenderloin together, to cater the complicated requirement in one-go. I prefer the softer part from tenderloin side, while of course, the more chewy and harder part would offer heavier and more intensive taste in return. As usual, a plenty of side-dishes is provided as you wish, eg. fries, salad, veggies etc. Sugar Free Espresso Panna Cotta $48 / $62 as Tea Set Chocolate Thunder From Down Under $58 / $72 as Tea Set The dessert continues the good tradition of US-like potion and 'evil' style, which must be made of enough chocolate, enough cream and enough butter :P While, I really love the sugar free espresso mousse, which tastes even a bit bitter but very much espresso. You are treated with after-meal coffee and yummy dessert together :D Outback Steakhouse (MOKO) Shop 605, Lv 6, MOKO193 Prince Edward Road WestMongkokKowloonHong Kong +852 2529 2228Mon to Sun. 11am - 10.30pm Facebook Please give a LIKE to my Facebook Page !You can also fine me on other networks through Home Page links.

  16. What to do after grande party on Sunday afternoon? A lot of my friends will say "Bubbles"! Yes, I know everyone like +$118 free flow included Cava and some wine(12-4pm) which wrote on board(I forgot to take photos)... is it a holly awesome deal?! The open restaurant concept seems to be tailor made for the weekend laziness. Imaging to have a seat, back to the restaurant and facing to the street in a weekend mood. People walking around with a complex face combining the cherish of the last afternoon of the week; a kind of excitement, a kind of anxious and a kind of sleepy :P The restaurant is very much in a causal way, to be simple and modern. Similar to us, the people here are more into the drinks and small bites, instead of a serious dining face! Maybe it's exactly the way how they named the restaurant, such a signature beach name, Papagayo! Deep fried crab cake, Fresh prawns carpaccio, Beef carpaccio... Papagayo Foie Gras Terrine, Olive and Toasty Little bites (tapas $98 for 2) are very attractive in their presentation. Very cheerful color in red, green and orange and like a painting; the taste was also 'painted' in interesting balance, especially appreciated to the foie gras toast, which used berry jam to adjust the greasy flavor, and dressed up with a 'dot' of cheese :D Quadruple Cheese Pizza (Cheddar, Parmesan, Mozzarella, Goat Cheese) $108Shrimps in Garlic and Olive Oil $88 Roasted Suckling Pig Cut w/ Homemade Sauerkraut and Smash Potato As a casual style Spanish resto, the suckling pig here is not bad in deed. Seafood Paella $268 Home Made Caramel Ice-cream $55 Again, the amazing and beautiful presentation, which you won't imagine it's actually not that ice-cream :) Salt Caramel Mont Blanc $55 It's something standing between ice-cream and cream, to be a bit heavy but not too much with a very creamy taste and smoothy thick experience.

  17. SEAFOOD & PASTA | OSTERIA | HONG KONG

    Summer season, paired with seafood inspired summer menu, would be an attractive deal. Osteria by Holiday Inn in Tsim Sha Tsui, keep their monthly refreshing menu and this August, would be the stage of seafood. The seafood promotion menu covers mostly fresh veggies and shell category seafood, like scallops, crab, mussels and lobster, ranged from $300 to $500 around; and of course, presenting by the traditional Italian concept. The very traditional and farm-inspired dining environment managed my expectation perfectly to surprise me by a modern dish of Marinated scallops carpaccio (with green apple sorbet, caviar, vegetable salad $298). A perfect combination of softness and freshness, especially the mallow-like transparent scallop slices and the mind-waking green sorbet :D Linguini Mancini with slow cooked lobster meat, scampi tail and zucchini flowers ($518), is another favorit for the perfect-done linguini. To start the long dinner, we wouldn't miss a glass of wine and a basket/wooden box of fine breads! I love crispy cheesy bread always. Tuscany pici pasta, slow cooked lamb sauce, morels mushrooms, black truffle $588 Home made meat casoncelli, butter sauce, guanciale fresh black truffle $218 Two pasta, one from July's pasta promotion list with a big potion for 2/3 persons always, very sharing-friendly idea. Meanwhile, the quality doesn't lower a bit as the good deal nature, which delivers an intensive taste with strong black truffle flavor and again, perfect pasta. Whie pizza, Italian smoked ham, scamorza cheese, fresh black truffle $218 600g of USA rib eye steak, rocket salad, shaved parmesan, vegetables $688 Frittole alla veneziana con gelato alla vaniglia $88 A recommended dessert option by the friend. The sweet and refreshing vanilla ice cream was melting all the way down to the plate, while, the crispy crunchy 'fried donut' (very much like puff) still remained warm and full of butter aroma.

  18. COMMON ROOM | HONG KONG

    Fire-like summer season in Hong Kong again, and what we can have this time to cool down? What about ice-stick cross-over cocktail? Cocktail Ice-stick, Boozesicles, continues this summer by Common Room with NICE POPS. Except chocolate, the other five are all based on summer season fruit, and designed with different liquor base. OX Tongue Rice Paper Rolls $98 Clam Toast $108 Seafood Ceviche Salad $128 A la carte menu in Common Room, stands between fine-dining and small bites concept. Separated by Earth/ Sea/ Land and Heaven. Started with seafood and veggies in Vietnam, Spanish and French style. Big bite of Rice Rolls with the refreshing veggie slices inside; another big bite, which is the recommended dish from me, has the garlic toast on top with clam cooked with white wine. Squid Ink Seafood Paella $138 Seared Foie Gras $148 There is a little 'argument' upon the paella, personally, I consider it more like risotto. Cooked with Arborio rice, clam, blue mussels and red shrimps, it is definitely a seafood feast. The soften and moisture taste overall is very much in the paella style but the rice is cooked similar to the feeling of risotto instead, which is the interesting experience to all of us. Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake $68 The highly recommended cheesecake is not in the NY style nor Italian way, but Japanese concept. The cheese top tastes like ice-cream giving a mild cheesy flavor and berry-like refreshment. Cryo-Fried Vanilla Ice Cream $85 It's a blue-fire show of Brandy and ice-cream! After the first round fire-show, a scent of caramel-like started to dilute the sweet air in the restaurant; after the second round, another cup of raspberry sauce is pulled over the huge ice-cream ball on the top, giving the bloody-marry looking :D I love the fried flour-like skin outside the vanilla ice-cream! A slightly firm and elastic texture with the little 'eggy-butter' sweet, warm-warm taste, standing on the opposite side of the melting ice-cream. :P Common Room 1/F, Wo On Building8-12 Wo On LaneCentralHong Kong +852 2525 3599info@common-room.hkMon to Fri. 12nn - 2.30pm & 6pm till lateSat. 6pm till late Facebook | Twitter | Instagram Please give a LIKE to my Facebook Page !You can also fine me on other networks through Home Page links.

  19. LOONG YUEN | HONG KONG

    I haven't tried a lot of Chinese/Cantonese restaurants since I came to Hong Kong, while in the limited ticked list, Loong Yuen, is one of the recommended list. The impression of this restaurant to me, is everything about quality and humble. The restaurant is located in the basement floor of Holiday Inn in Tsim Sha Tsui, which is a hot spot but not adding too much benefits to the restaurant for its hidden location. The visitors there are half tourists half locals, who are mostly re-visitors for its stable quality. The Chinese dishes served there were in a reasonable price range, and the design of the dishes were in generally, traditional, but sometimes they are twisted with a little new concept by adopting the western cooking concept. Braised Ox Tail in Tomato and Red Wine Sauce (with Steamed Buns) $398 The top ranked dish throughout the night! We appreciate a lot to the amazing orange looking. The Ox tail was prepared in pressure cooker, to make it softened but still to keep the water from going away. The soup-like sauce is more like paste, with a middle-to-thick texture in a very rich taste of tomato, while red wine, I cannot tell a lot, and to be honest, it's more in the functional way to contain the quality of the meat taste and chewiness, but not to the flavor of the sauce. Anyway, a highly recommendation to all food-lovers who like a sense of strong taste. Double-boiled Pig's Lung with Pork and Almond Soup $398 The one of the most traditional Cantonese 'medicine' soup. The soup is strongly occupied by the almond aroma, and the slight sweetness from the pork. Very light in taste and almost oil-free. Pan-fried Fresh Shrimps with Premium Soy Sauce $368 Crispy shrimp shell covers the fresh alive shrimp meat, and they are completely dressed with the sweet and salty soy sauce. Another appetite stimulator! Deep-fried Crispy Chicken $398 One of the most popular dishes from Loong Yuen's menu; and it is so cheerful to no matter kids or adults, who's sharing the same happy memory of colorful crispy chips in their childhood. The deep-fried chicken is absolutely qualified, as the comparable standard I have had in China. The color is just to the point, and the transparent-thin-layer of fat below the crispy paper-like chicken skin, is even overpassed those what I have tried before! Totally in an opposite way, the chicken meat left, is just soft and tasty never-ever. Simmered Green Sprout with Assorted Wild Mushrooms in Superior Soup $138 Such a beautiful Chinese dish like a painting with 'lake', 'water-weeds' and 'woods floating in the water'. It's a juicy and refreshing veggie & mushroom dish, perfect after those deep-fried meaty ones. Deep-fried sesame Balls with Pineapple $48Deep-fried Chinese Fritter with Pomelo Sauce $58Baked Mini Egg Tarts $48Chilled Papaya Pudding in Almond Sauce $68Chilled Baileys Coffee Pudding $48Sweetened beancurd Pudding $98 Ok, it's amazing... I know, it's amazing that we ordered this amount of dessert... Girls always have the second stomach for desserts, and sometimes it also applies to the guys; so when those girls and those guys have dinner together, the chef will be super busy and the restaurant will be super happy :D When we read the dessert menu, we just cannot resist those interesting and renovated traditional Cantonese desserts with a brand-new name with the creative ingredient, sesame balls not with red beans but pineapple, amazing! The fish-shape pudding not in coconut flavor but with almond sauce and papaya; and such alcoholic us! How can we resist Baileys Coffee Pudding!!! The beancurd, is fresh-made, and served with ginger brown sugar or normal syrup, in the traditional wooden pot. We appreciate the way restaurant tries to preserves the tradition and culture, and we appreciate the yummy dish served there as well.

  20. LOBSTER & CHAMPAGNE | BISQUE | HONG KONG

    Round table, fancy open kitchen, balcony for colorful nightlife view in the heart of Hong Kong, and a table of premium lobster dishes with the glasses of celebrity-branded champagne. What a Hong Kong night! It's an upper-stairs restaurant and bar, specialized in its premium lobster dishes and imported champagne. To the 'always-busy' Hongkongers, it could be the best ever option for a lighter seafood/cold dinner after busy day. A glass of champagne with friends/ colleagues/ lovers, and to enjoy a random glimpse of busy LKF night-street. We are again recharged well for another day in this attractive and vivid city. Look around the tiny but stylish restaurant, or to call it, bar, would be better. The smart use of reflected blue lights, shadows a sense of night sexy and stylish to the whole dining area; and I was, at a moment, quite attracted by the busy scene in the open kitchen. The busy figures moving around, with the sounds coming from the boiling water, the working oven, and the pan on the fire, and sometimes, you could smell an almost-invisible sense of butter odor, I could claim, I AM NOT HUNGRY! :D Whole Fresh New Brunswick Lobster (1.75lbs approximately as live weight) with Grilled with fresh herbs and garlic butter $588 Classic Lobster Bisque $178 My favorite two lobster dishes are the grilled whole one, and the soup. The grilled whole, was just amazing as its artistic way of presentation. Like a piece of artwork, it's absolutely rich in colors, by different grilled veggies, and of course the main role - lobster, which 'entertained' our eyes and tongues by the bright orange looking, the firm and meaty texture and, the slightly sea-salty taste. Besides lobster, oyster is the another choice you could have from Bisque. Baked Coffin Bay Oyster and the fresh one from France, would serves both hot and cold oyster dish lovers. Mini Lobster Slider $340/3pc Never say NO to sliders! It could be the best partner to any drinks from beers to wines, so why not? if you are not too resisted to burger-like dishes :D The lobster slider, is made of their qualified lobster meat (mostly from the leg part). The spirits of this delicious is the perfect made buns - crispy and soften in one bite! And the chef-invented secret sauce, which combines some spices, chili ingredients, and something restricted to be revealed by the lovely British chef :P Steamed Canadian Blue Mussels $270 New Brunswick Lobster'a la Wenberg $390 OK, it's definitely having nothing to do with 'the largest lobster in the world' as the dish name mentions New Brunswick; but we were still quite satisfied and not over-spoiled by this fine dining idea about lobster menu. A quite balanced and delicate-designed whole lobster dishes, from the soup to the grills.

  21. NOT ONLY CLUBBING | BUNGALOW | HONG KONG

    If mentioning Bungalow, you probably won't link it with something about dining but just clubbing. Well, I was the same before I went there for a private dinner recently. Casual French and international menu and the brain behind is from the young Taiwanese Chef, who's creating and trying the modern dining concept. Imagine the spacious dancing pool is empty and only several dining table around the corners are what the restaurant have at all! The paintings and classical lamps are not only the decoration, but also a door to fantastic atmosphere, just like the candles on the long dining table! The manager is quite interesting and creative to talk with, and I got one special jasmine-tea inspired cocktail from him. I was very surprised and impressed by the almost-mocktail taste from it, even I was told 1.5 shot of Gin is the base actually, WOW! Octopus (salad) as the appetizer is what exactly I want for the summer season. Seafood but flavored perfectly - such a stimulating dish. And the presentation is kind of forest feel; I will say it's more autumn shadow with a picture of red leaves laying by layers around the tree root in the deep forest. Maybe that's why I appreciate this dish a lot personally (trying to escape the humid hot summer in Hongkong, at least in my mind). Another inspiring dish, Tuna Ribbon, the quality of raw tuna is sooooo good and so as the presentation. I like the word, Ribbon, to name this dish, quite into the point and such a smart way to show the French concept behind Bungalow. The sauce is very intensive as the sourness it has, while it would be better to reduce the sour level a bit, to leave more performing space to the quality tuna. Smoked Duck Breast, was my favorite one among the main course that night. Slow-cooked duck breast, is totally out of fat and to be well done but with a perfect level of softness and tenderness. Plus a small mixture of different spices as the sauce, the 'smoked' flavor is more outstanding in a different way. Capellini, is actually designed for vegetarians, amazing as such a special treatment. The homemade pasta is a bit 'eggy' but I love it; sauce, is just as it should be, to satisfy us. Recommend!!! A simple lemon tart with vanilla ice cream as the ending of the whole night, sounds not bad.

  22. It's been a while this new 'crystal' restaurant & bar open in Central, LKF; I was there two weekends for the great dinner and for their grand opening. Love almost everywhere of this new restaurant in the town, from the lovely entrance with a gorgeous open-kitchen view; the seamless night view of HK island/Central while you are seated along the window (it's almost 270 degree); the cute tiny terrace on the 23rd floor where I enjoyed the 'wet' breeze from the typical HK summer; and most importantly, it is their awesome and nice service crew busy around the dining area and bar area with the yummy dishes crossing the whole space. How can you miss a breath-taking chance to enjoy the beautiful shiny night view in Hongkong?! even it's a tiny square place for max. 10 pax; I definitely not care about that! We were arriving a bit in the middle of the dinner time, which offers us a perfect chance to enjoy a private breath in the terrace. Look up, I was expecting the coming C'est La Vie; look farther, I was recalling so much good memories about Hongkong Island. Cocktails of Townhouse, you should try without doubt, and not end up with only one, better two or three >3< The reason is the perfect and attractive modern-style all their cocktails offer, which is soooooo cool; we seriously appreciate it's not a shitty one with over-run syrup or juice but every ingredient in a balance and perfect match. For the guys, don't be shy to hold a beautiful cocktail glass, I would like to recommend the bacon-inspired 'spicy' cocktail, to be cooler :D The menu of Townhouse is more in a causal dining way with a twist of Westerner and Asians. Therefore, the menu is designed into Small Bites, Big Bites and Main Course. For us, we just found the small bites are actually more interesting and having higher chance to be picked up! Well, I'm just getting into their cute little colorful bowls with a lot Asian element a lot. The truffle chips, would always be a right option for a casual chicken-talk night; plus it's served super hot and fried in a perfect way. The spicy squid with the special spicy sweet cream sauce is awesome as well. Evil bites with a lot of fried stuff, of course, we won't forget to get balance from refreshing salad. Apart from the normal salads, we chose the fruity and nutty one with roasted duck as well. It was just awesome and wowed us. We really love the slightly roasted pine nuts which give the extra warm flavor and smell to the whole dish; and the sweet soft mango inside was 'killing' us over the night. A little concept input from Southeast Asian's sweet food culture, there's also a list of screws (quite expensive to be honest). The Coca-cola Prime Beef and Kimchi Cheese Mushroom, you must try and maybe you will recall it immediately after the first bite. The beef is sooooo tender and juicy, quite similar to the Japanese style as the sweet sauce. The mushroom is amazing!!! Cannot find such juicy one, and we were spoiled by the super rich taste of kimchi and cheese. Yes, don't be shy, if you feel too full, or you're a bit done with the boring indoor dining environment; grab your cocktail glass, and step out again, the Central's night is still there, and even more sexy. The dessert is quite outstanding among other dishes from Townhouse. Especially, the Coconut Lime Sorbet and the Wasabi Chocolate Mousse. We were speechless when dealing with those two. Just using the authentic coconut meat and fresh lime juicy for the refreshing taste, and a non-stop flavor of coconut cream is flowing in the mouth. Chocolate mousse is such a great sample of beauty and beast! Spicy wasabi not too aggressive but stimulating your tongue a lot with the super soften and smooth chocolate mousse, which is also less sweetened and more dry dark chocolate in taste. We cannot stop eating! :P The vanilla fondant with Hongkong-style egg cake and some fruits, mini oreos, is more as a playful trick than a tasty way. For Townhouse, Small Bites, Screws and Desserts, are top 3 choices for the dining people, for the drinking and party ones, I just noticed they are giving out awesome Happy Hour deals from Thursday to Saturday, 10pm onwards. $100 for their signature cocktails and 2 glasses, that sounds incredibly unbelievable, right!!!

  23. KAM KEE CAFE | HONG KONG

    Traditional old Hongkong-style Cafe reopened in Sai Wan, is attracting a group of people who are always running after the classic and qualified dining place. I love the old poster hanging there, 20/30's fashion is saying a lot of that-year stories, which are absolutely fantastic to the young generation like us. Actually, our grand-generation could have more romantic than us :D A visit to Hongkong-style Cafe, of course, cannot miss the most normal but most popular choice, all-day set! Starting from the 'red soup', it's already not that normal and often served in today's Cafe's in Hong Kong. Highly recommend Kam Kee's red soup, for its super authentic and rich flavor. Starter is omelette with simple ham slices and a half-sandwich baked with butter. Thin rice noodle with liver, spring onion and fresh ginger slices. It tasted quite light and almost plain in flavor; which I appreciate the original taste from the good soup and to stay healthy by reducing artificial seasoning, but it would be better to have more seasoning. To talk about the liver, texture is the most important thing, crispy, rich and tender; Kam Kee's liver is qualified. Fried Chicken Leg, it's good size, and attractive looking in a very deep fried looking. To our surprise, it's not deep fried with flour; instead, it's more traditional Chinese way, to have the chicken leg marinated in the special salty and sweet Cantonese sauce first, until the chicken absorbs the sauce by every piece; then slight fried it to make the looking dark honey brown, and to give a super mouth-watering smell. Everyone love it, and highly recommend to try! Indonesia-style (sweet) curry with beef in bread, it's creamy and super rich in taste, with the melted cream and special Indonesia-style curry. Texture is a little sticky and you could find the almost-melted onion slices in the curry even; it's an impressive flavor of sweet curry and inspiring spices. The beef is awesome! Very tender even in big chops. To have it with the hot crispy bun, it's probably the must-order item for every visitor (the portion is enough to serve two).

  24. MIND-CHANGE VISIT | CALI-MEX | HONG KONG

    Burrito fever is coming to Hong Kong!!! Besides, my favorit burrito restaurant (Little Burrito), Cali-Mex, is another good choice. I have paid my first visit to the first Cali-Mex shop in Wellington street, Central, which honestly is very disappointing experience. I'm even not willing to give a second chance for it when my friends mention it to me after. While, as its branches covers more and more spots in Hong Kong Island, and people around me reflects good comment on it; I decide to have a look of Cali-Mex again. The burritos from Cali-Mex, is famous of its size! I was satisfied a lot by its perfect-made baked flour tortilla and the 'massive' fillings and selected beans. Quesadillas I love the crispy thin tortilla of Quesadillas, and cannot resist the half-melted cheese covered below. It's more for vegetarians, light creamy but very cheesy with the lovely sour cream and avocado salsa on top. Perfect! TacosThey provide soft or crispy tacos, which of course, we prefer the crispy one for it's double-layer experience. A soft one inside to be in touch with fillings, which mostly are seafood (prawn or fish fillet) with a very cheerful sauce (mild spicy or very hot) and refreshing tomato; A crispy tortilla is mainly for the outside layer, and for the 'crispy' experience (better to take it as it's freshly hot).

  25. SHORE | HONG KONG

    Classical modern is the general image and first impression of Shore to me. Nested in Central's commercial building, it's been a regular gathering place for Happy Hour, and in-the-week dinner place. It's a steak house with a wide international menu and a fine collection of wine; besides it's a bar for one or two glasses of normal cocktail or mixture. I like their low terrace, even it's always a bit too crowded, but at least it's a very easy place to have a small sky among the cold buildings in Central. If you are looking for something very unique and different, Shore definitely will let you down, but like most of middle-to-high standard steakhouse in Central, it's chic, cool, stable quality and professional service; from the dark brown sofa, the hard-and-soft decoration with silver vase and lily inside, it is not difficult to predict the typical American-Italian dishes in their menu. Dirty Rosemary $105Vodka Infused Rosemary , Massenez Creme de Fraise Monin Macadamian Nut, Pineapple Juice As a starter of the night, I choose a floral & herb drink from Shore's signature cocktail list. It's a mild but intense vodka-cocktail with a nutty creamy taste; floral and sweet for a girls' night. Shore Steak Tartare $168/small & $298/Large One of my favorit that night as a meaty starter dish. It is hand chopped beef with cornichons, capers, shallots with chips as sides. The beef is quite rare with a cold, smooth, mouth-melting taste; besides, it is seasoned by a special spicy and sour sauce, very appetite-opening. I even won't recommend to have it with the chips, for the original flavor of the tartare, but Shore offers quite good chips :D Smoked Whole Roasted Poussin $298 Pork 2 Ways $278Cracklin pork belly, sous vide Iberico pork loin, butter beans, kale, apple mash, chimichurri sauce Highly recommend non-steak main course with a very balance and non-oily taste, using pork belly and pork loin to create a 2-layer tender texture. The apply mash with light cream sauce is the most important part of the whole dish, for its refreshing fruity flavor to take away the fat from the meat. Steak with Macaroni & Cheese Bacon as side dish. Super devil combination, but we couldn't stop. It's quite traditional and normal way to handle the steak. Surface is handled quite well-done as the color, but not in my favorite looking of over-done or even, 'over-burned'; inside it's quite juicy and lovely pink, worthy for its price. Macaroni with cheese and bacon, is awesome! We even treated it as one of our main courses, and had it non-stop. It's very cheesy and creamy but less-salted and not too heavy in the flavor, plus the flavorful bacon and its natural fat melted to oil as heated up. Beurre Monte Lobster $418 Fregola, baby squid, mussels, king crab meat and lobster bisque. It's an intensive seafood feast with the very-well-done fregola and the perfect sauce. Sticky in a right and satisfying way to 'glue' the sweet and fresh seafood cubes and chewy pasta. Banoffee Pie $78 Very interesting dessert with a decentralized presentation. Warm banana, vanilla icecream, cream, mousse, and the crispy biscuit. It's awesome and tasty as we all have no adverse comment on it. Shore 3rd & 4th Floor, the L.
