Quayside

Quayside Marinated Hokkaido Scallops

You might have noticed that I’ve taken a short hiatus from blogging this month.  I have been dealing with a few things and it’s all sorted now.   So, hopefully you’ll be seeing me posting more frequently now.

Last month I was fortunate enough to be invited to a few tastings, and haven’t gotten around to sharing them with you. So, first off I want to introduce you to Quayside.  Tucked away in the Fenwick Pier in Wan Chai, this off the radar restaurant serves an international menu influenced by French bistro dishes.  They’ve recently brought on a talented young Executive Chef, Andrew Lo, to revamp their menu, and have generously invited me to sample their contemporary French spring menu.

How to Make Fresh Pasta

saltnchili-Fresh-Pasta-DSC06700-2

If you’re a follower of my blog, you would know that I’m a pasta lover.  I love trying new pasta recipes and most importantly I love eating it.  Up until now, I’ve only shared recipes using store-bought dried pasta. As much as I love the firm al dente texture of dried pasta, my affection for silky, delicate and tender fresh pasta isn’t any less. Read more >>

Stir Fry Beef and Celery with XO Sauce

Stir-Fry Beef and Celery with XO Sauce

Stir fry dishes are a no brainer for a weekend night dinner.  I usually choose a meat such as pork or beef and a veggie such a bok choy or broccoli… and voila, you have a dish.  You can either whip up a simple brown sauce (oyster sauce, sugar, cornstarch and water) or use store-bought black bean sauce to tie the ingredients together.

A stir fry I like to make on a weeknight is this Beef and Celery with XO Sauce.  The XO sauce brings so much flavour to the dish and the beef cooks in a jiffy. Read more >>

CHINO

Chino Chicken & Egg Tostadas

I guess it’s fair to say where there is a new MTR station, there is an attraction of new shops and restaurants like bees to honey.  With the opening of MTR’s new West Island Line late last year, residents of Kennedy Town and Sai Ying Pun (opening later in 2015) have been noticing new trendy restaurants popping up.

Tenku RyuGin: Our Anniversary Dinner

Tenku Ryugin

In the blink of the eye, hubby and I have been married for 8 years.  We just celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary last month and like every year, I was given the task to select the restaurant to celebrate this special day.  It wasn’t too difficult for me to decide, because there was a restaurant at the top of my list that I’ve been dying to try.
