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!

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.

Rainy Blues

Damn the weather in Hong Kong! It’s raining, it’s humid, it’s polluted and people should get umbrella licenses before someone else gets a spoke in their eye. Trying to turn the negatives into positives. Nothing can remedy my gloomy mood than food! I blame my weight gain on the climate.

If only exercising cheers me up as much as eating does… 😛

Nice to Meet You, Steve

Trip Advisor recommended a homey little restaurant by the river and I just thought, if TA says it’s good, it can’t be bad. I was so impressed! Aromatic and flavorful home-cooked-style dishes made from ingredients that you could taste were fresh. A scrumptious dinner that would leave you full to your neck for only $125HKD per person. Steve Cafe and Cuisine is a definite place to go if you are in or going to Bangkok.
