The Dining Room Shredded beancurd

Hysan Place houses a long list of restaurants, giving Causeway Bay shoppers a lot more dining options. It has taken me quite a while to try out most of the restaurants in this rather new shopping mall.  And because of the queues in front of the Shanghainese restaurant, The Dining Room (南小館), it has taken me even longer to try this place out.  We finally got ourselves into The Dining Room for lunch a few weekends ago.

Going to Flint this weekend was a spur of a moment thing. Hubby wanted to go somewhere nice and suggested JW California (inside JW Marriott), as it’s been a while since we last went. We knew they shut down for renovations a couple of months ago, so we checked to see if it re-opened, and we discovered the restaurant was renamed Flint.

After we went to my toy store (aka Pantry Magic) last Sunday, we wandered around the quiet neighborhood of Sheung Wan looking for a restaurant to brunch and stumbled upon the new restaurant, Nosh. Despite it still being in its soft opening stage, it was pretty much a full house when we walked in.
