We shared the exciting news of Charlotte Tilbury’s brand soon-to-be launch in Hong Kong earlier and on last Wednesday, we were invited to meet her in person and explore the magic of her products at her apartment suite in Landmark Mandarin Oriental. The experience is beyond incredible.
Hunting is not a part of our culture in Hong Kong but you can definitely enjoy a hunting themed meal at Spanish Restaurant Olé, especially if you crave for heartwarming comfort food recently and that’s me all the time basically so I’m thrilled to be invited to try their hunting theme menu earlier this week
In celebration of the launch of Who Is Ralph Lauren? which is a new addition of Penguin Random House’s popular series Who Was?, the fashion brand hosted a party to share to joy! Chic moms such as Qi Qi, Margaret Chung, Nicola Cheung, Cara G, Ankie B and Ana R are the guests of the party.
If you have been to Thailand, you must be familiar with “Tuk Tuk” (auto rickshaw) which is one of the main form of transportation there but don’t be surprised if you find Tuk Tuk in Hong Kong recently because it’s a new menu at Ayuthaiya. The new menu taking inspiration from Thai street food as well as gourmet Thai dishes from different regions including of salads and mains, available until end of November.
It’s starting to get cold in Hong Kong and I cannot be happier especially for two reasons: 1) I can layer clothes again 2) holiday season! Yes, there are people who are already making plans for Christmas and Gaucho is one of them. I went to try their Christmas brunch menu last week and here are some of my thoughts.
Hong Kong is never short on restaurants or bars with harbour view, but not each of them can meet up the expectation of the food quality and the view at the same time. The newly opened ANA TEN is an exception.
Brunch with free flow booze is probably the recipe of perfect weekend morning, Si Simply Italian knows us so they introduces their first weekend lunch menu which includes 10 appetizers, 1 main course and 4 desserts (on a platter).
Located in D2 Place, Lai Chi Kok, the Italian restaurant wants to bring approachable Italian cuisine to the neighborhood - you can tell from their interior design where they use modern, minimal style wooden furnitures, floor-to-ceiling windows and plenty seats available. It creates such a relaxing atmosphere for diners (and early risers too!).
Anyone who has lived or studied in UK or Ireland for a while will miss the pubs and the pub food as they’re not easy to find in Hong Kong. McSorley’s Ale House has been a lot of people’s favourite for years and it was our big loss when they decided to move out of Soho a few years ago but the joyful news is that it is back to Soho and I was lucky enough to have a taste of their menu last week.
My passion for Korean food is uncanny, something about how they put different materials together to make the dishes so refreshing and satisfying always amaze me so it’s no doubt that I was thrilled when the contemporary Korean restaurant, MOMOJEIN, invited me to try the new menu. We've tried alsmost a dozen of dishes during the meal but here some of my favourites to share with you.
Pernod Ricard has been a leading winemaker in the industry for years and yet still manage to surprise us with its expansion of wine collection.
