Previously published on February 22, 2106. The most devastating part about losing a year of my posts were all my posts on Osaka and Tokyo. I managed to recover this one so I will start reconstruction with this which also happened to be one of my favorite sushi places in Tokyo. I highly recommend anyone going toContinue reading “Tokyo: Lunch at Sushi Iwa Ginza 鮨 いわ”
I have a friend from the US and she said there’s no good food in Hong Kong. She’s lucky we were chatting online when she said that or else she would have heard my loud scream, “Are you crazy?” I’ve forgiven her for that blasphemous statement.
As soon as I arrived in Hong Kong from Macao I went straight to 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA to meet my friend Tisay for lunch. I’ve been hearing so many good things about the first and only Three Michelin Stars Italian restaurant outside Italy (December 2011).
iSquare is a 31 storey mall in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui. I have reviewed several restaurants in this mall. There’s not a lot of stores that I like in the mall except for Log On and Jason’s Marketplace but there are a lot of restaurants that are worth going to over and overContinue reading “Dinner at Ah Yat Harbour View Restaurant”
For lunch I ate at Nanhai No. 1, a Michelin One Star restaurant in a beautiful setting with matching prices. For dinner I bought dim sum at a hole in a wall in Mongkok which also had the distinction of being the cheapest Michelin One Star restaurant in Hong Kong. I went to Tim Ho WanContinue reading “Take Out Dinner From Tim Ho Wan”

I never knew there was a Michelin One Star Chinese restaurant, Nanhai No. 1, in the building until I read the reviews on OpenRice. The moreContinue reading “Lunch at Nanhai No. 1”
As of 2012 there are five Michelin 3 star restaurants in Spain and three of them are in San Sebastian, Akelaŕe, Arzak and Martin Berasategui. Due to several reasons we chose to dine at Akelaŕe. We actually made a reservation there even before making hotel reservations and buying plane tickets like in my case. We wish we could haveContinue reading “San Sebastian: 3 Star Lunch at Akelaŕe”
I just left 18 Grams full and happy when I checked out what else was nearby using Yelp. I was surprised when the magical words “Tim Ho Wan” came out. Who doesn’t know about Hong Kong’s cheapest Michelin Star restaurant opened by a former chef of Lung King Heen? I’ve been wanting to try TimContinue reading “Tim Ho Wan”
One of the best things about Hong Kong is you can eat your heart out from the cheapest street food to popular restaurants from France and around the world.One of my favorite places to eat Sunday lunch aside from Grissini’s is at 2-Michelin Star Spoon at the InterContinental Hotel Hong Kong where we stayed forContinue reading “Sunday Lunch Buffet at Spoon by Alain Ducasse, Hong Kong”
Last March I found out my 3 young cousins were going to be in Hong Kong at the same time as I was. I told Elizabeth about it and she said we had to bring them to Robuchon, the #1 restaurant in Asia (2009/2010) according to The Miele Guide. It would be a once inContinue reading “L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon with the J brothers”
