Winter Warmer.

26 12 2009

The perfect Christmas Eve? Dinner with my brother in The Garden Room at Hong Kong’s Country Club.
An order of their famous black bean and beef rice, half a roast pigeon and to finish it off… a totally delish apple crumble!

Yo Mama!

No… this has nothing to do with crude jokes or Wilmer Valderrama.

Yo Mama is the newest of yoghurt chains to set up shop in IFC. Similar to that of Snog in London, Yo Mama offers only two yoghurt flavors; original (tart) and green tea.
The difference is in the toppings – catering to Asians, along with the usuals of fresh fruit, Oreos, chocolate shavings, peanuts etc., Yo Mama offers slightly more ‘oriental’ toppings such as mochi, black sesame powder, longan and nata de coco.

Crystal Jade.

18 12 2009

Crystal Jade is one of those typical Hong Kong style eateries. Cheap, delicious and fast – one can expect to be in and out within 30 minutes. Get there at lunch hour and you’ll be greeted by a long queue of ex-pats, but before you can say ‘chilli wonton soup’ you’ll already find yourself at a table with hot tea in tall glass tumblers and a waiting waitress.

On todays personal menu…

Matcha Goodness.

God I love Hong Kong… everywhere I turn I see matcha used as a key ingredient – it’s madness!
