Hong Kong Food News & Reviews


Calorie counting can be tough when you're (still) trying to stick with your new year's resolution. But the good news is, you can actually eat out even on a strict diet. El Mercado, the new nikkei resto in town, has just released a 500 calorie menu that  brings together the best of Peruvian and Japanese ingredients, and is perfect for those who are trying to eat clean following the festive season! Read on and see what's on the menu.


Forget about your boiled chicken breast and limpy salad. This low-calorie menu has everything you want when it comes to taste and presentation. Imagine feasting on oysters, grilled chicken and sweetening up the deal with a hit of sorbet and not feel a pang of guilt. Too good to be true? Scroll on for the breakdown!
