SEAfood

Returning to an old time favorite for some authentic South-East Asian fare.
Loving both the zesty salad with lemongrass and seared tuna and the grilled prawns in spicy vinaigrette. Nom!

Nobu Omakase

Suffering from difficulty in making decisions, I love restaurants that offer a chef’s/omakase menu. The best one you will find is at Nobu. Not only were my high expectations met, they were surpassed by far!

Peruvian Afternoon

A three hour catchup with a friend from out of town is a great way to spend an afternoon. Throw in good wine and amazing food, then you’ve set the tone for a weekend that won’t disappoint.

Tantalize your taste buds with fresh seafood, succulent meat, exotic spices, and complex flavours!

Let’s Roll

My long search for sushi pizza in Hong Kong is now finally over. Kokon serves delicious chopped salmon pieces dressed in light spicy mayo over a deep-fried rice patty.

We also nommed on some other creative maki rolls like the dragon roll (shrimp tempura, cream cheese, salmon) and the fireworks roll (spicy salmon, spicy tuna and corn tortilla chips). Oishii!!!!

A nice brunch place minutes away from home! Reasonably priced, convenient and super tasty. I can see myself being here on some hungover weekends.

Hangover Remedy

I’m a disgusting person for drinking 963267 drinks and I do deserve a massive hangover. The best way to nurse yourself back to health is water, pizza and zzzs. Good night!

16th Anniversary

Happy National Day!!

The first week of October (better known as golden week) is the time when all the wealthy mainlanders flood into Hong Kong. They wait to get into Hermes, Chanel and Louis Vuitton, buy everything in the store and piss and shit on the streets (although, not always in that particular order). The only difference this year is that there’s no reason to push and shove with them on Nathan road. Rather silly, but the national fireworks are cancelled due to a ferry collision last year. The logic behind that is that because if it’s happened once, it will again the following year despite being more safety prepared and cautious. Chinese people worry about the wrong things.

Reminiscing last year’s beautifully lit skyline. Maybe the last of the October 1st fireworks.
