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
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

A tried-and-true Moroccan favourite in Soho I have a family friend that comes into town once a month for his EMBA program, and we try to catch up over a meal.

After some research, it seemed like Lilya was much more bar than restaurant with some complaining the portions were very small for the price.

It seems like there’s always something new to try in Hong Kong’s F&B world, whether it’s a new opening, a new menu or even a new renovation. With Hollywood Road being one of the trendiest in the city, we’d walked past Thai restaurant Ayuthaiya (owned by Aqua Restaurant Group – who knew?) multiple times but had thought it was more of a bar with its deep red decor. Ayuthaiya has recently been renovated, and its clean, bright ground floor and front patio are a welcoming spot to
