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!

Nanhai no. Worst

Boyfriend LN’s brother and sister in law visit Hong Kong and on their first night here we decide to welcome them with a Michelin star dining experience overlooking the Victoria harbor.

Nanhai no. 1 is one of my favorite restaurants… Until this experience that is. The food was spectacular as always. We devoured every bit of what we ordered – crispy yam, pork belly, cheese and prawn crispy fried rice, sautéed asparagus and mushrooms, beef and foie gras stir fry, wolfberry pudding, and their most known dish, king prawns in bang sauce.

Everything was just perfect, with the exception of the service. I am shocked to have been served by such unknowledgable, rude and unhelpful staff. They don’t know their menu, they got the bill wrong and they gave me attitude. If I’m spending that amount of money at a restaurant I am entitled to standards and expectations.
