Bubble Waffle YeeKwan
  Instagram is going nuts for them, Pinterest is featuring them, Chinatown tourists are eating them, so what are they? Bubble Waffles of course! But, how do you make them?   First off, you need a machine. Don’t close the page at this point though, trust me, they are highly inexpensive. Just...
Bubblewrap Waffle London
Fresh off our Sn-ap coach, we headed from Covent Garden over to Chinatown to try an old friend - the bubble waffle. You have to cast your mind all the way back to Hong Kong for our first experience of these Asian snacks at Oddies. Thankfully, you can save...
Hong Kong Fish Balls at Home
If you’re a regular viewer of these pages you may have come across a post about how to get the best fish balls in Hong Kong. Well, no worries if you missed it because here is an actual recipe for that popular street snack - and it’s incredibly easy. Now...
Fish Balls, Hong Kong
Top of the street food itinerary for our trip to Hong Kong was these bad boys - fish balls. Ever since I tuned into a programme where British due Si King and Dave Myers aka The Hairy Bikers were touring Asia, these have yet to leave my mind. As...
Cordis Hotel, Hong Kong
Cordis Hotel, Hong Kong 555 Shanghai Street, Mong Kok Mong Kok station is like a maze. Every turn seems to point to an exit that leads onto three more exits to choose from. None of them unfortunately pointed directly to Cordis Hotel just across the street from the main Langham Place...
Big Buddha, Hong Kong
Somewhere in a remote area of Hong Kong sits a huge monument overlooking the forests and clouds while tourists and pilgrims flock to its feet. This is the Tian Tan Buddha or otherwise known as ‘Big’ Buddha, a sculpture of the Buddha Shakyamuni which was completed back in 1993...

Little Bao

Little Bao Hong Kong
“This is the line, right?” it’s around 11:30am on a saturday morning and already we are queuing up for a select number of bar seats at one of Hong Kong’s hottest sandwich shops. Little Bao, much like Oddies, is situated in a hilly area of Hong Kong. A journey...
Oddies Hong Kong Egglets
Feeling fit? We’re off to Gough street situated on the upper levels of central Hong Kong. We could have used the mid-escalators to take the easy route up but that’s just admitting defeat. Climbing the steep flights of stairs from Queen’s Road Central lead us to our mid-morning snack...

Tim Ho Wan

Tim Ho Wan Michel Star IFC Mall Hong Kong
  “It’s got to be down here” “but this isn’t the IFC mall” “the man definitely said down the third escalator and to the right didn’t he?”. Finding Tim Ho Wan was undoubtedly a challenge. It would appear that we are not alone as tourists in search of some of...

Chuen Moon Kee

Chuen-Moon-Kee-Hong-Kong-Mongkok
  Claypot rice was on our hit list during the Hong Kong trip and a couple of places stood out that specialise in it. Four Seasons Claypot rice and Hing Kee are both in Mong Kok and both have had great exposure on blogs and across social media. Looking at...
Yat Lok Michelin Star Roast Goose Central Hong Kong
  “It’s all about the goose” said Anthony Bourdain on a visit to Yat Lok restaurant. He’s right, it really is. Walking up an ever increasing gradient on Stanley Street in a part of Hong Kong that just begins to get hilly sits Yat Lok. A small, unassuming place that if...
Kan Kan Kan Korean BBQ, Hong Kong
Kan Kan Kan Korean BBQ 11/F, Langham Place, 8 Argyle St, Mongkok Normally I would be wary of any place bearing the initials K.K.K but the promise of manning our own grill and sampling a new cuisine for the evening drew us in. One question you may have is why, when...
