Little Bao – a modern Chinese diner in Hong Kong – shot to fame with its signature mini sliders, sharing plates and cocktails since its opening in Hong Kong three years ago.
Chef and owner May Chow is now bringing Little Bao to Bangkok – its first overseas outpost. Like the original Little Bao in Hong Kong, the new Little Bao in Bangkok follows the same formula by dishing out familiar and sexy renditions of our Asian favourites over the counter and in many unpredictable and refreshing manners.
London is synonymous with good food, and where the Chinese community is concerned, roast ducks are a must when in the British city.
Sure, there are many upmarket Chinese restaurants serving exquisite Chinese cuisine and dimsum, but most would agree that when in London, nothing beats the comfort of a plate of roast duck and a bowl of egg fried rice in a relatively old-school Chinese-looking eatery complete with (gaudy) red and gold decor.
So London has three very famous names when it comes to roast duck – Four Seasons Roast Duck, New Fortune Cookie and Gold Mine. These three are the most talked about restaurants, but which exactly is the crème de la crème?
We’ve been to all three many times on numerous occasions, and this is our humble take on the best roast ducks in London.
You know what is one way to really impress your guests and make them happy at your wedding?
TO HAVE A LLAOLLAO BOOTH, OF COURSE!
We did it and it proved to be among the most talked about highlights of our recently concluded wedding celebrations. Llaollao Catering is the newest arm of the very popular Spanish froyo brand, and it is an idea that is nothing short of refreshing. Our guests agreed that arriving early for the cocktail reception was well worth it.

London’s first naked restaurant is about to open its doors to the world.
You know, nothing much. Just dining in the buff alongside many other naked patrons, and having naked waiters and waitresses serve you. Why dirty your clothes when you can just tuck in without your clothes right?
That is what is going to happen at The Bunyadi – which already sees a waiting list of more than 20,000 people (and the numbers are jumping every hour). The Bunyadi is set to open in June 2016.
Laurent’s Café is an underground gem in the heart of Orchard Road offering a menu of brunch items and desserts.
The cafe by renowned French chocolatier Laurent Bernard might be easy to miss as it sits on the basement level of a mall, but if we told you The Heeren, would you know where already?
Beautiful and authentic French fare and world-class desserts are what you can expect from this cosy and inviting space. Laurent’s Café is indeed those under-the-radar spots in town and it might easily be our favourite cafe in the Somerset area already!

Egg tarts are aplenty in Singapore, but real good ones are rare like eclipse.
There are a few types of egg tarts and we too have our preference. The ones that tug our heartstrings are the Hong Kong-style ones with flaky pastry and sweet egg custard filling. Now, those are pretty rare in Singapore, unless you go to a dim sum restaurant – which can be expensive.
Know where we always go to when we need our Hong Kong-style egg tart fix? We are about to let you in on one of the hugest secrets.
