What to eat in the land of dim sum?

Flaky puff pastry with rich and smooth cheese mousse (made with Hokkaido cheese). Probably not the best cheese tart among those we've tried in #HongKong, but at least it flows!

PS: If you think cheese tart is too mainstream, how about cheese tart flavours like durian, taro, potato, matcha and chocolate?

📍33 Dundas Street, Mong Kok, Hong Kong

Intense craving for some steamed rice rolls after watching a recently aired HK drama.

The slightly translucent rice roll enveloping the sweet BBQ Iberian pork is soft, smooth and springy.

Probably the most expensive rice roll I've ever had till date but I guess it's considered cheap as we are talking about a restaurant with #2michelinstars here. Oxymoronic I know. haha. Well, I would say it's worth a trip here for the excellent service, ambience, spectacular view and of course, the dim sum.

Brown bun with brown pork chop in a brown paper bag. #monotone

The pork chop bun is as dry as a bone. Period.

We came here specifically to try the Black Truffle Eggette (HK$30). Made with Japanese flour, the eggette here is crisp on the outside, soft and fluffy inside with slight hint of truffle. Quite nice actually~ Worth a try although I still prefer Mammy Pancake's eggette.

雞蛋仔, 經典香港街頭小食。我哋特登來呢度試下黑松露雞蛋仔 (HK$30)。呢度嘅雞蛋仔使用日本麵粉製作,外脆内軟帶少少松露味。真係唔錯~ 值得一試雖然我鍾意媽咪雞蛋仔多D。

Truffle fries (HK$48) served with truffle mayo dip. Resistance is futile.

Labmade Flavours of the week (7 Apr to 27 Apr) — Coconut Pandan Cake (HK$46) & Mango Passion Fruit Creamy Greek Yogurt (HK$41).
The Coconut Pandan Cake was creamy with subtle frangrance of pandan & coconut. The desiccated coconut topping added texture to the ice-cream. However, we prefer the Mango Passion Fruit Creamy Greek Yogurt. Very refreshing! Perfect for hot weather!
📍Shop 42, G/F, Miramar Shopping Centre, 132 Nathan Road

Who says you need to go Japan to eat freshly made Calbee potato chips? I can have them in #Hongkong too!

Featuring HK exclusive flavour, Typhoon Shelter Spicy Potato Chips & Soft Serve (HK$38). The crispy wave cut potato chips reminded us of #Calbee's Hot & Spicy potato chips BUT better & spicier. Love dipping those chips into the creamy soft serve. DAMN SHIOK!

PS: Expect a steady queue at the one month old Calbee+ store. Don't be deterred cos it's definitely worth the wait! .
📍Okashi Galleria x Calbee Plus
Shop G14-15, G/F, Lee Tung Avenue, 200 Queen's Road East, Wan Chai


Dulce de leche ice cream sandwiched between 2 Cocoa Krispies "cookies", drizzled with chocolate sauce.

The ice-cream was creamy albeit a little icy. I like how the ice-cream ain't too sweet and pairs well with the rice krispies cookies. Love the chewy cocoa rice krispies cookies!

Available till tomorrow/while supplies last. Try it before it's gone!

PS: Their torched salmon donburi is good too! .
