Review: Mui Kee Congee, Hong Kong (妹記生滾粥品)

What are some of your favourite comfort foods? One of mine has got to be congee, a type of rice porridge that is eaten in many Asian countries as a staple meal. I was back home for the holidays and so I made my way to Mui Kee, a famous eatery in Hong Kong famous for its congees- and rightly so! photo Continue reading

Recipe: Mentaiko Spaghetti

Today I thought I’d share with you a recipe for mentaiko spaghetti, inspired by my trip to Tabibito this summer and adapted from this recipe. It’s the perfect winter warmer- creamy, decadent and a little bit spicy. I hope you’ll try it out if you have the chance!

P.S: Merry Christmas-hope you all have a happy, relaxing and food-filled day of festivities!

Review: Dishoom, King’s Cross

I’m definitely not a morning person, but when I heard that the newly-opened Dishoom at King’s Cross was offering a 50% discount off all meals, I knew I had to seize the opportunity and finally try out their highly-lauded breakfasts. After all, who doesn’t love a good deal? 🙂 I’ve visited once more since the deal, and can definitely say that it’s worth a visit even if you have to pay full price.

Guide to Hong Kong (Air France)

Hi everyone-I hope you don’t mind a little something different on the blog today. I’ve recently teamed up with Air France to create an interactive map of Hong Kong. On it, you’ll find information regarding places to eat as well as my favourite spots in the city, a lot of which are off the beaten path. I hope you’ll find it useful if you ever find yourself in Hong Kong. Happy travels!

Review: The Frenchie, London

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that I’m pretty obsessed with eating at food markets and food stalls, and rarely am I left disappointed or with an empty stomach. Whilst the other stalls have been delicious, I think that I’ve finally found my top pick – The Frenchie, a food stall that specialises in the most drool-inducing duck confit burgers ever.

Review: Seoul Bakery, Tottenham Court Road Station (MOVED)

UPDATE (August 2015): Looks like Seoul Bakery is reopening in the Bloomsbury area (14 Great Russell Street). Yay!

UPDATE (Jan 2015): Sadly, Seoul Bakery, along with the rest of the Korean restaurants on TCR have closed- https://londonist.com/2015/01/centre-points-koreatown-wiped-out-by-crossrail.php 

If you’re looking for Korean food in London that’s as cheap as chips, look no further!

Seoul Bakery is one of my favourite local haunts- it’s affordable, central, and super tasty. Unfortunately, it’s also incredibly popular, and more often than not you’ll see a long line of people (mostly Asian students) vying to have a meal in this tiny shoebox of a restaurant, which only has 12 seats. The restaurant has a very strict first come, first serve policy- so try to get there early.
