We had some nice Korean food for lunch. Kaya has a discount on lunch if you can get out before 1PM.
French Window Brasserie has a nice grilled seafood dish and desserts.
Disappointed in limp bacon but good for quick breakfast
Too bad I could not get crepe for breakfast but still a good start to the day
We did the weekend brunch at Wei Jing Gei. It was good, but I think we could have ordered a la carte and gotten better value.
We are settling in on a regular menu at the Hut. We need to change it up at some point
Da Dong is famous for their duck and usually quite crowded at ther outlets. We went to a new one over by Century Park. The duck was nice. The selection of interesting dishes was quite large.
We had a group lunch at Cobra Lily. The highlight was the lamb shank. I quite liked the Shang-High drink also.
We had unplanned dinner at Agora. Good sushi
The highlight for today was the flaming duck
Tried some new items at the Hut. The meatball, sesame chicken are good picks
On a quiet day back from holiday, we hit Chao Kee for dim sum. Added the curry rice noodle to the mix
I went back to El Luchador at Xintiandi. We had a larger contingent and we got a wider selection of dishes. It was all good.
I like how this place really does look like a barn. It’s a cozy atmosphere. The pancakes were awesome.
I stopped over at El Luchador for a nice brunch. The tuna tartare and the wagu steak and eggs were both great. The service is excellent also.
The full menu was not available when I got to Liquid Laundry, but the Cracker Pizza and grilled octopus were sufficient for my needs.
I finally completed my first book, Along the Bund. It is meant to be a tour guide that gives some history of the famous buildings along the Shanghai Bund and provide some insight into the famous cuisine that exists along … Continue reading
On a quiet day back in Shanghai, we got lunch at The Hut. The meatball was excellent.
I think the name ‘Giant Seafood Hotpot’ says it all. It seems like a decent deal and the place is open til very late at night.
Walking the narrow bridge while hiking from Sai Kung is interesting especially when people bob up and down on the creaky wood.
I always liked Pizza Express. Throw in free wifi at the airport and I am sold on getting a quick pizza before my flight.
The sellers save on space on the pier and sell right off the boats in Sai Kung
I think I did enough hills to work my legs out for a while. The little side streets and small merchants do make for interesting exploration.
While exploring the hills of Hong Kong, I found a nice little tapas place, Cicada. The beef skewers were excellent. The vegetable rolls and eggplant were also quite nice. Definitely worth a visit.
R&R Bagels is located on Li Yuen Street West which seems more like an alley. The shop is hidden behind some street stalls. But I managed to find it and had a great maple bacon, egg on a bagel.
I met an old friend for dinner at Sushi Kuu. The tuna tataki was excellent.
The HSBC lions have a long and interesting history. You need to rub them for some good luck
Afternoon tea seems to be a must do in Hong Kong. There is a line to get a seat every time I drop by to check. I decided to wait it out and get in a nice afternoon tea.
The lunch set at Madam S’ate is a nice option. Lamb and Wagyu burger are both good choices.
Mercedes Me has an eatery connected to the Mercedes dealership in Hong Kong. It serves a decent breakfast to kick off the day.
