Waipo revisited -review

By: Phuong | Comments Off on Waipo revisited -review | | Category: Chinese, Reviews | Tags : ,

I was here some years ago, back in 2014, and I’ve been thinking that I have to come back but never had a chance until now. Thefork.se is having a gastronomy festival and participating restaurants are offering 50% discount on food. Yeah! The decor seems lighter than before and the vibe was... more

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... more

Tim Wan Ho restaurant – review

By: Phuong | Comments Off on Tim Wan Ho restaurant – review | | Category: Chinese, Reviews | Tags : , ,

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... more

Din Tai Fung restaurant – review

By: Phuong | Comments Off on Din Tai Fung restaurant – review | | Category: Chinese, Reviews | Tags : , ,

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... more

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,... more

Wu Kong Shanghai Restaurant – review

By: Phuong | Comments Off on Wu Kong Shanghai Restaurant – review | | Category: Chinese, Reviews | Tags : , ,

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... more

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

By: Phuong | Comments Off on Battle of the wonton soup: Mak’s Noodles vs. Tsim Chai Kee – review | | Category: Chinese | Tags : , , , ,

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... more

Waipo – review

By: Phuong | 1 Comment | | Category: Chinese, Reviews | Tags : ,

Waipo is almost a year old and I found some mixed reviews on the Internet. Nevertheless, I was determined to eat there as Bookatable had a deal, 5 dishes for 295 crowns. I had scoped out the dishes that had gotten good reviews so I knew what I wanted to... more

Is there any reason to travel to Elephant and Castle as a tourist in London? You betcha! It’s Dragon Castle that’s the main draw here. Their dim sum was divine! We wanted to explore new neighborhoods and I had found on Yelp that there’s good dim sum to be had at... more

Homemade tofu from scratch

By: Phuong | Comments Off on Homemade tofu from scratch | | Category: Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese | Tags : , ,

I finally was able to score some nigari in Stockholm (available at Good store in Södermalm) so now I make tofu regularly, at least once a week. It’s a cinch to make tofu from scratch if you have a soy milk maker, otherwise it takes longer but it’s still pretty straightforward.... more
