I wanted to write a short post about the delightful lunch we had at High Street Grill, a new addition to the Sai Ying Pun restaurant scene. It was a weekday lunch so they offered set menus at $98 for 3 courses. We’re usually a-la-carte-ordering-type-of-people, but the selection on the set menu seemed interesting and the price tag was attractive compared to the a-la-carte choices, so we both got the set.

To celebrate our wedding anniversary this weekend, we went to Inakaya to try the robatayaki (a Japanese style of cooking food on a grill). Located on the 101st floor of ICC, the tallest building in Hong Kong, this restaurant is one of the few elite restaurants that are part of Sky Dining 101.
I’ve come to the conclusion that Hongkies are crazy about Japanese ramen. If you live in Hong Kong, you wouldn’t need to ask to know how I came up with this. For those who have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m referring to the long queues of people waiting outside of ramen shops at all hours of the day. Ichiran Ramen, Butao Ramen, Hakata Ippudo are examples of ramen shops that you can see long queues of hungry Hongkies waiting for a hot bowl of Japanese ramen.
I’ve never been a fan of queueing for hours for food [in fact, I’m not a fan of queueing for anything], so I prefer ramen establishments with shorter wait times. If you’re not in for waiting for 90 minutes at 8am for a good bowl of ramen, I recommend trying Ramen Jo. Tucked away in Causeway Bay on Caroline Hill street, this little ramen shop offers tasty noodles with short waiting times. I’ve never had to wait for more than 15 minutes out of the few visits I’ve made to this ramen place. Read more >>
It was more than 3 years ago when we accidentally discovered this little gem. It was during a time when the Causeway Bay building where Sushi Fuku-Suke is located was filled with Japanese restaurants. After the Japan tsunami, many of those restaurants closed down, but Sushi Fuku-Suke withstood this period where Hong Kong people were afraid to eat Japan-imported food. And I believe it had everything to do with the authentic and consistently quality food they serve and doing it at reasonable prices. To this day, this is a restaurant we keep going back to when we feel like good quality Japanese food. Read more >>
