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. Read more >>
Going out for weekend brunches is a ritual that a lot of couples in Hong Kong have adopted. And for us, these brunches involve exploring new Japanese restaurants for their sushi and sashimi lunch sets. Quality sushi restaurants usually charge an arm and a leg for their omakase dinner’s, so by trying their lunch sets first (which are significantly cheaper) allows us to decide whether we would like to go back for the chef’s selection.
Kishoku, located just behind Times Square on Yiu Wa Street, is one of those restaurants where you would want to try their omakase dinner’s. Read more >>
We’ve been to Gonpachi when they first opened up last year, but they didn’t make much of an impression at the time. I distinctly remember being served mediocre food and being extremely frustrated with their slow service. By the time we got our bill, we vowed to never return.
If you follow my blog you would know I’m not out to give bad reviews, instead I prefer to share good food adventures. So there is a reason why I’m blogging about Gonpachi today. Our recent re-visit to Gonpachi completely changed my mind about their food and service (well, more so the food).
Work hasn’t been exactly a breeze recently, so I’ve been easing my work pain with delicious meals on the weekends. And last weekend when I was craving Japanese food again, we had an impromptu lunch at the fabulous Inagiku, located in IFC mall, adjacent to the Four Seasons.
I first came across Tiger Curry when I passed by their building a month or two ago. I was captivated by an abstract graphic mural splashed across a 3 story building [I apologize for no photo, I intended to take a snapshot, but I completely forgot]. At first I thought it was a new trendy fashion boutique, but when I got closer I saw the “Tiger Curry” sign and immediately put it on my restos to-try list. Read more >>
The Ippudo group has brought to Hong Kong a new ramen brand, Gogyo. There has been a bit of mixed reviews on this new ramen joint out there, and I’ll let you know why later. Read more >>
Located in Wanchai, the entrance to this little Washoku Japanese restaurant looks mysterious and intimidating to those who pass by. The windowless store front with all-black panels only has a small white sign with an interesting design of circles and the name, YOUKA. When you open the sliding doors, you’ll find yourself greeted with a modern and cozy interior, which is a complete contrast to the exterior.
