ForKee
I had read about the cha chaan teng or literally tea restaurant serving a fusion of Canto-Western cuisine but it didn’t grab me until I discovered For Kee restaurant which serves delicious pork chop on rice! What’s so special about it you ask? Well, imagine a tender, perfectly cooked pork...

Tim Wan Ho restaurant – review

Tim Wan Ho
I had read numerous articles on this resto which started out as a hole-in-the-wall resto which received a Michelin star. I guess business has been good since then as they now have 4 branches throughout HK and also branches in Singapore. We ate at the Sham Shui Po location. The...

Din Tai Fung restaurant – review

By: | 0 Comments | On: April 1, 2014 | Category : Chinese, Reviews

I was lucky enough to find a Groupon for this resto. 60HKD for 100HKD of food. Not a large discount (80HKD for 2 pers) but every little bit helps right? We ate at the Tsim Sha Tsiu location in the Silvercord Mall. The resto is on the 3rd floor. I thought...

You will never go hungry in Hong Kong! We recently returned from a trip there and it was the best trip ever, due to the food! Our first night there, we just gorged ourselves on street food. This is typical of a street stand – dim sum of various types,...

Wu Kong Shanghai Restaurant – review

By: | 0 Comments | On: March 30, 2014 | Category : Chinese, Reviews

We had our best meal in Hong Kong at Wu Kong Shanghai Restaurant in Tsim Sha Tsiu. The cold pigeon in wine sauce was super delicious. I’ve never had pigeon before and it won’t be the last time either. Hubby thought that the meat was too gamey but I couldn’t...

Battle of the wonton soup: Mak’s Noodles vs. Tsim Chai Kee – review

By: | 0 Comments | On: March 30, 2014 | Category : Chinese

Mak’s Noodles is often touted as the best wonton soup in Hong Kong. Their serving size is extremely small, the size of a rice bowl. Apparently, this is to keep the noodles al dente. We tried out this joint and the one across the street, Tsim Chai Kee, and both...

Bistro Rigoletto – review

By: | 0 Comments | On: February 19, 2014 | Category : French, Reviews

First of all, I have to rant about this year’s Restaurant Week. All of a sudden, they increased the price to 250kr (from 200kr) for 2 dishes! Highway robbery I say! So from the meager list of what was on offer, I chose to go to only one resto this year...

We were a party of 5 on a Monday evening and the resto was quite packed! We had a deal that I had booked way back when, 3 courses for 295kr which was a steal! The food was fantastic! We started with the bread which the waitress brought over in...

Trattorian – review

By: | 0 Comments | On: February 9, 2014 | Category : Italian, Reviews

We were here on a Friday two weeks ago and had a great time! They had a 50% off the food menu deal and we couldn’t resist. Having heard that Melker Andersson modelled this resto after Jamie Oliver’s Italian restaurant chains in the UK, I was a bit apprehensive about...
