New colourful choices at Pret this Summer in Hong Kong


If you are like me and regularly go to Pret and hopefully see something new each day, that wish has now been granted again. This summer there will be a new selection of tasty food and drinks to choose from that I plan to try.

I have highlighted the ones that I want to try first, which includes some smoked salmon, prawns, pesto chicken, yuzu drink, finished by a Very Berry Croissant!

The new menu at Lobster Bar and Grill at Island Shangri-La is here


We have heard some rumours about a new menu and not it is finally here! All I can say is do not look at these photos if you are hungry....

The new menu has been curated by Executive Sous Chef, Cary Docherty and Head Chef, Kenny Chan. The dishes include Mushrooms on Toast (HKD 238) followed by main courses Lobster Thermidor (HKD 598), Beef Wellington - for two (HKD 998), Grilled Bone-In Rib of Pork (HKD 380).

For dessert there is the Tarte Tatin served with Madagascan Vanilla Ice Cream (HKD 188) and French Beignet with Lemongrass Custard and Coriander Sugar (HKD 88).


I think for myself I have my eyes set on trying out the Beef Wellington for two. I have tried this dish in a number of locations around the city and it is one of my favourites. Time to make that booking, full details below.

Quick delivery service of store products now available with pandamart by foodpanda


Foodpanda Hong Kong has now launched pandamart. What is the difference with their current food delivery service? Well this is a quick commerce service where the company has its own urban warehouses that can provide delivery of certain items as fast as 15 mins, 24/7. Obviously this service has come about with the rising demand of ordering online in the city.

The platform boasts over 4,000 items including general groceries to household items, you can even get a nice beer or two! They currently have so promotions for this month to obviously attract new members and to offer something back to those that have already signed up.

BaseHall - The multi-concept food hall in Jardine House opens!


When we heard like many others that Grappa's Cellar was going to close, we were upset as the place had a lot of history and not only we had attended some great live music shows there, we also organised our own events there too.

Fast forward a few months we now get to see what BaseHall is all about. First impressions was that it felt a lot more spacious and well lit, with a ceiling that can change colour throughout the day and night. Music was playing, food was quickly being taken around the place and the long bar was busy with people that have recently left work. All the different food options are evenly spaced out in the lower part of BaseHall, with nice clear signage and what is available. Very quickly we dived into to try out the different menus and find out more about each of the different food and beverage concepts that are a key part to the launch.

The great thing about BaseHall is that there is such a wide variety of food and beverage choices there is always a reason to come back on a regular basis and the concept, food and drinks would never get old. Out of all the dishes that we tried on our first visit the Nasi Lemak stood out by Return of Lemak. I think this was because 1, it was very tasty and 2, we had not had Nasi Lemak in a long time!


Other food and beverage options that are on offer include: Honbo, Co Thanh, Treehouse, Cookie Dpt, Moyo Sik, BaseHall Bar, Westside Taqueria, Pub 1842 (by Young Master) and Roti Tori.

Tom Andrews, Senior Asset Manager at Hongkong Land Limited, explains how and why BaseHall is set to revolutionise Central's dining scene: "We took almost two years to choose our operators, searching across the city for the most exciting and upcoming talent. Our aim is to incubate new F&B concepts in Hong Kong by providing a unique platform for creative chefs to develop new offerings. We hope that BaseHall will become an exciting new dining destination for the Central office community as well as our LANDMARK customer base. The diverse mix of food and drinks as well as music and content will definitely create a fun space for our younger clientele.”

BaseHall opened this week, do go down and check it out and let us know what you think and what dish or beverage you enjoyed the most! For more information about BaseHall, visit the following links:
