Plat du Jour – Who says French Food needs to be expensive?

French food is so expensive in Hong Kong to the point that I’d rather save up to fly to French to eat authentic French food. I heard good word about PdJ from a friend who seldom talked about food, and he definitely didn’t disappoint. The restaurant has a vibe that’s very similar to La Vache – it’s…

La Vache – great steak at affordable price.

There could be no dispute that steak is expensive in Hong Kong. Even if you’re happy to cook it yourself at home. La Vache is practically the heaven for steak lovers who would not want to spend big bucks. I believe that one of the reasons why their steak is so good (and has been…

Mothers day @ La Vache!

        Have heard so much about this restaurant and finally I got to try it out on mother’s day! (* they do not charge extra for Mother’s day!!) If you are a steak lover, I think you may have heard of this place. They only serve one set menu: Salad, Steak +…

Al Mono- The Italian Feast Michael White special menu

  Situated next to the Harbor City with a small alfresco dining area, wooden deco, and an (kind of) affordable menu, Al Mono can be a nice place to have gathering with a group of friends or family once in a while. I had had dinner and Saturday semi-buffet brunch here long time ago and…

end of 500 days in central and welcome to gourmet sunday!

Sorry guys, haven’t updated for ages… the reason behind my failure to blog is that– I have finally say goodbye to life in Central! (bye bye to the boring job in Central!) my new work place isn’t exactly the place to continue with my food journey, but being a foodie, nothing can stop my crave for…

ShakiYauho- Should have gone for Yoshinoya

Not feeling very hungry today and wander around Sheung Wan and saw this place and decided to give it a try… and the result… you can pretty much infer from the title. This HK$48 Bento is very small in size, with a little bits and pieces of sashimi. The rice made me think of the…

The Wonder of Pret a Manger

Ok. This is not a review and it is just a question. I don’t know how many people have the same question in mind, but I have been wondering the same for 6/7 years and I can’t hold that anymore- why is the skimmed drink in Pret not only skimmed (actually i haven’t really checked…

Saturday in Central-Jashan

      My parents come over to have lunch with me after I got off from office. After wandering around central for 30 minutes we settled for the all you can eat at Jashan (HK118pax). The buffet section is not big with about 8-10 pots (curry and other soup dishes) and about 4 fried/…

HMV kafe- when music, book and the Coffee Academics collide

Menu Finally get the chance to visit HMV kafe with a new friend. The kafe is located on the 3rd Floor of the Central HMV and run by the Coffee Academics. The little alfresco dining area. There are only 3 tables in the cafe. Lovely latte art (which turned into bubble later, see below) The…

Carrot cake that tastes exactly like carrot-simplylife

It’s a weird decision for me to buy a carrot cake (for myself). I have hated carrot cake for most of my life. i hate the dense yet dry structure of most carrot cake which makes it like very heavy bread. Somehow, when i saw this cake i want to eat it (i was there…

Takeaway Friday- 樂香園咖啡室 I love scramble egg!

  Look at the gorgeous semi-liquid scramble egg!  I love scramble egg, especially when it is still semi-liquid and not full cooked. When I was younger I was obsessed with the scramble egg and chicken in the canteen of Kowloon Hospital. I have tried so hard to  replicate that but to no avail. I hard…
