Truffles meet Chef Nate Green's hearty, smokey cooking Last year, Rhoda in Sai Ying Pun was one of the hottest openings in the restaurant scene. Diners raved about the contemporary homestyle restaurant that did wonderful things to meat on a grill. Since then, it’s become clear that Rhoda is a restaurant that continues to evolve thanks to a chef that cooks with his heart on his sleeve. Chef Nate Green’s passion for cooking is evident and he continues to experiment via an a la
For Korean food with a twist, my opinion is that no one does it better in Hong Kong than Momojein. The restaurant is going into its third year, and now its third menu; they switch it up every year/season. While I love chefs that stay creative and look for new ways to please their diners, it can also be a bit heartbreaking when you can no longer eat the dishes you loved so much. During the last round, I’d fallen in love with their potato pancake and dukbokki with hardboiled eg
Shiny new fusion restaurant in LKF While you can get nearly every cuisine imaginable in Hong Kong, sometimes it’s nice to have some good ol’ Asian food with a twist. Asian fusion is not a new concept but it feels like it’s been awhile since a new restaurant has done it well. When we heard of a new opening that was focusing on just this, we couldn’t wait to check it out and see if it would satisfy our craving. Fang Fang is located in LKF tower on the 8th floor. Like many resta
There’s a new Moroccan lounge and bar in Central and it’s a treat for all the senses. Once the elevator doors opened to Lilya's second floor location, our eyes met a beautiful wall of colourful Babouche slippers. There was so much to take in, we almost forgot to look up and notice the ceiling lined with fanoos, traditional glass lamps. Then the sweet smell of perfumed spices emanating from the bar hit us, and we made our way to one of the long velvet banquettes for the night.
New low carb and low calorie menus For those unfamiliar with The Kinnet, it’s a women’s only health and fitness centre in Sheung Wan. The vibe of the whole building is bright and modern, but food lovers will likely have heard of it for its restaurant. Known as The Restaurant by The Kinnet, it’s been serves up “good for you” meals. Its mission says “What we eat fuels our bodies, minds and spirits. So it is no surprise that eating well is one of the keys to improving your tota
Fun atmospheric dining bringing you back to the 1900s I’d been hearing about Buenos Aires Polo Club since it opened last year but had yet to check it out myself. From getting to choose your own knife to the s’mores dessert, most people had only positive things to say. Last Friday, a friend and I made last minute plans for dinner and thought we’d finally give it a try. Because why not celebrate Friday with red meat and carbs? What I ended up loving most of all was the atmosphe
The Envoy is one of my favourite bars in Hong Kong. Located in Central at The Pottinger Hotel, it’s just as wonderful for Friday night drinks on the terrace as it is for a quiet weekday tea in the bar. It drips colonial chic with dark wood, damask-like wallpaper, and colourful velvet accents. As part of Tastings Group (which includes some of Asia's best bars such as Quinary, Origin, and Vea), it’s no surprise that The Envoy has developed a reputation for top notch drinks. For
Experiencing Sabado de Boteco in Soho I’ve always been attracted to the idea of bohemianism, of being unconventional, free spirited, and fun loving. Bohemians enjoy food, drink, art, culture and life in general. A restaurant that celebrates this vibe with a South American twist is a welcome addition to Hong Kong’s polished dining scene. Uma Nota is Hong Kong’s only Brazilian-Japanese street food restaurant. It opened this past March, and was quickly beloved for its chilled-ou
