Hong Kong - Off The Beaten Trail

Hong Kong - Off The Beaten Trail

I like to look for new places that are really good and worthy to mention because too many hyped up places have disappointed me and my calorie bank .

Not known to many , but open kitchen / simply life is a chain of upscale bakery owned by the mei Xin group.

The croissant , breads and pastries ( especially the mixed nut tartlets ) are the best . In fact , this must be the best croissant I have eaten .

I love the vibes of this cafe especially .

They do very well in their alarcarte dinner menu ( think steaks , burgers and homemade pasta ) and their salad bowls for lunch are immaculate .

If you happen to visit fook yuen desserts and rice balls , then make sure you turn the corner to fu wah cafe.

I typically avoid Cha Chan Teng for my dinner option because I don’t see how a cafe can do buns and noodles and “ tze char” dishes all as well.

However , the food at fu wah cafe really changed my mind. Apart from the good polo buns and their unique Liu Sha cocktail buns and chicken tarts and satay beef Maggie Mee in soup , their alar cate dishes are even better .

It makes you feel like you are eating from home except that the dishes are really huge in quantity.

The mei cai and minced meat ( preserved vegetables ) over poached cai Xin was so tasty , I could just have this and rice and be Super satisfied .

When the chicken Claypot arrived , it brought my tastebuds yet again to heaven. The chicken was so fresh and tender and well seasoned with lots of aromatics like garlic , dried chilli , spices and spring onions . I haven’t had a chicken Claypot dish that I enjoyed as much as this .

Both dishes were tasty without being greasy , overly seasoned and oily . It really takes a Chef with exceptional skills .

I will be coming back for more .

Kwun Tong , Hong Kong

Kwun Tong is a must visit place when you are in HK. Once filled with industrial buildings , these buildings have since been revitalised and given a face lift . What you have now are tastefully designed cafes , art galleries , restaurants , exhibition halls and workshop.

Step into How Limited and you won't have the slightest feeling that you are even in HK. The spacious feel of the cafe and the beautiful Japanese furnitures are not only the alluring parts of the cafe . If anything, the food itself I feel is the main attraction.

Just this one cafe's food made me feel that we have got so much to catch up in the Singapore cafe scene. The Home made tomato Bisque , the (generous ) mushroom pasta with light truffle cream and the yam and sweet potato balls were outstanding. Special mention is to be made of the matcha latte - honestly I haven't tasted one as good as such ( the creaminess of the latte did not compromise the fresh green tea taste and the sweetness was just nice ) .

The teriyaki eel fried rice ( Japanese pearl rice ) and the spicy prawn garlic aglio olio with sundries tomatoes were also very flavourful.

I must say that all the items really wowed me and whisked my Tastebuds off to another sensory level . Sincere , fresh , Creative food .

It's no wonder when we arrived on a Saturday afternoon and the cafe was full ( in an industrial area on a weekend - you must be kidding !)

We were told that this cafe's concept is so alluring that quite a few Hk celebrities are frequent guests.

Don't leave Hk without visiting this lovely cafe.
HOW I miss you :)

I dream of food .
