If you are keen to experience the local way of life by dining at such unique and old-school restaurants, drop by Sing Heung Yuen – one of Hong Kong’s very last few Dai Pai Dongs.
The humble Chinese alfresco eatery has been around for nearly half a century and is especially well-loved amongst locals for its signature tomato egg noodles and tasty condensed milk buns.
It is no secret by now that we are huge fans of Mukshidonna Tteokbokki Restaurant in Seoul. If there was only one place we could go to when in Seoul, this would be it.
For all who have never heard of Mukshidonna , they are a chain of casual eateries and are famed for their affordable and extremely addictive Korean Tteokbokki Hot Pot. And they are now in Hong Kong! This, we couldn’t be more excited about.
Who else besides Hello Kitty is five apples tall and has no mouth? The Japanese Sanrio character has stolen the hearts of generations across the globe since its debut a few decades ago, and today, Hello Kitty is a world-famous icon and very well-loved.
Cutesy Hello Kitty-themed cafes are already sprouting across Asia, with another kawaii Hello Kitty-themed cafe set to open in Singapore Changi Airport next month. Evidently, the world just cannot seem to get enough of this Japanese cat with no mouth.
If you thought that the restaurant industry would halt at just Hello Kitty cakes and coffees, you are absolutely wrong. Hello Kitty Chinese Cuisine, the World’s Very First Hello Kitty-Themed Dim Sum Restaurant has taken Hong Kong by storm and is a must-visit for all avid fans.
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.
Everyone should know Dim Sum Icon in Hong Kong by now.
Remember those adorable Gudetama dumplings with molten centers that everyone was posting photos and videos of on social media? Well, to kickstart the new year, Dim Sum Icon has changed its Gudetama concept to a Little Twin Stars one with adorable dim sum items that will totally melt any girl’s heart.
Dim Sum Icon changes their character themes every three months and this Little Twin Stars theme will last till the end of April 2016. Then, a surprise new theme will replace this one.
Of course, we could not resist trying out these dim sum ourselves, so we ventured to The ONE at Tsim Sha Tsui in Hong Kong to have a taste. We were certainly not disappointed by the array of colourful pastel-coloured dishes.
Munchies – a certified organic and GMO-free bakery – might be a relatively new kid on the block, but is already making significant waves in Hong Kong with its irresistibly delicious handcrafted goodies.
The people behind Munchies are not marijuana addicts but passionate individuals who bake so well that one would feel like he/she literally got the munchies.
Hong Kong’s famous cha chaan teng Honolulu Cafe is opening in Singapore! Famous for its egg tarts with flaky pastry, it will open a 1,500 sq ft restaurant with 50 seats at The CentrePoint in Orchard Road at the end of April 2016. We will go out on a limb to say that Honolulu Cafe has the best egg tarts in Hong Kong.
Located on the ground floor of an unassuming grey building, Ronin restaurant is completely camouflaged and unnoticeable to unsuspecting passersby. It is virtually impossible to discover this hidden gem by chance and only those in the know would know about it.
Yet despite having no visible signage to indicate its presence, this speakeasy style Japanese bar-cum-restaurant in Hong Kong is packed with customers every night.
The majority of Ronin’s clientele consists of well-informed epicurean foodies who have no qualms about splurging on gourmet tapas. A meal for two – inclusive of alcoholic drinks – would easily set you back by approximately HK$1500 (or S$276). Pretty exorbitant for bar dining, huh? We are here to give you the rundown on whether or not it is worth your hard-earned money.
