Hong Kong’s legendary Yung Kee Roast Goose Restaurant is set to close after the descendants failed to reach an agreement.
Back in November, Hong Kong’s Court of Final Appeal released a statement announcing that Yung Kee might possibly be wound up. On Wednesday (16 December 2015), the city’s highest court rejected a request – by Ronald Kam, one of the sons of the restaurant’s founder - to extend a liquidation deadline which was set to expire.
Established in 2014, Crafty Cow is a gastropub in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong, specialising in craft beers and premium steaks. The chic restaurant aspires to bridge the potential barriers between local Hong Kongers and the third-culture generation. The end result is a successful showcase of revamped Western classics infused with regional Southeast Asian flavours.

Everyone in Hong Kong knows Yung Kee Goose Restaurant for two reasons – their delicious roast meats and its ongoing family feud. The infamous fight over the restaurant’s ownership had reached a dramatic climax when the Court of Final Appeal released a statement announcing that Yung Kee might possibly be wound up. The fate of Yung Kee will be sealed in 26 days and only an agreement amongst the descendants can prevent it from being auctioned.
Located on the 16th floor of The L. Square building is Atum Desserant, a specialty dessert bar that has revolutionised the way Hong Kongers eat their traditional sugary treats. The modern open-concept bar boasts beautifully plated confectionary and stunning improvisation desserts; we were beyond enthralled by Atum Desserant’s ingenious creativity.
Atum Desserant is already very famous in Hong Kong, and well-loved for their innovative concept of improvisation – where guests get to sit back, relax and partake in an interactive experience with their personal dessert chef-cum-artist who will spontaneously create an edible artwork on the spot, right before your eyes.
The fun-filled demonstration of the table-plated dessert is an effortless integration of art and food; it was quite a show that left us speechless.
No trip to Hong Kong is complete without spending time at the world famous Hong Kong Victoria Peak. You may argue that it is touristy and cliche, but you cannot deny its beauty.
We frequent Hong Kong, and we never get sick of The Peak. There is this sense of familiarity when at The Peak – glimpses of scenes that we see in Hong Kong dramas (our favourite!), and places that we see in photos, they always ignite comfort.
Have no clue on what The Peak has to offer? Well, apart from the luxurious mansions that the wealthiest in Hong Kong owns, there are other viable experiences we mere mortals can enjoy.
From the wax museum to Wildfire Pizzabar & Grill that offers a resplendent view of the city skyline, here is our take on 5 Things To Do At Hong Kong Victoria Peak.
Gone are the days where Hong Kongers are limited to their traditional desserts of egg waffles and glutinous rice balls. It is fair to say that the multifaceted global city has progressively embraced the influences of the West and its other Asian neighbours over the past decades. Today, modern civilians of Hong Kong are spoilt for choice when it comes to desserts.

You might have heard about our love for Hong Kong umpteen times – we still do, but today, we want to share some dining highlights from a recent trip because there are many reasons to love dining at Central, really!
We all have different objectives when we travel – some like to just stuff their faces silly with all the good food, some like to experience the local culture so that they have memories to keep in their hearts for always, some like to explore the famous attractions and sites. But because we always prioritise eating (greedy like that), our tummies are ever ready to be surprised, ever game to dine at non-touristy places, ever excited to explore all the food awaiting us.
Central is a bustling area in Hong Kong, and while it may be the CBD of Hong Kong, it actually has many dining options to offer.
From a very gorgeous cafe that is filled with natural sunlight, to what is probably the sexiest Japanese restaurant in Central, and a brilliant bakery that bakes the most creative croissants; here are 7 Restaurants in Central Hong Kong To Fall In Love With.
Quite essentially a modern tea house that serves pretty matcha desserts, Sinmei Tea might just be the it place to be now when you need some matcha fix in Hong Kong. It took us a while to locate the place, because it sits on the fifth level, within an unassuming building in Sheung Wan.
What welcomed us was a long queue of matcha lovers, and an atmospheric cafe with an interior that models after a traditional teahouse.
