Welcome back :)2011-05-14 20:56 206.53.x.xIts definitely summer already! It was 3x sth degree a while ago if I rmb correctly. It was SOooooooo hot! Anyway, I haven't been writing lately, getting pretty lazy. I didn't eat out much too, I am trying to control my weight..kinda put on quite a few kg after my TW trip...anyway, if u fancy a dine out, we could go try sth new maybe
Came across your mouth-watering food reviews on Openrice & you are a true foodie. I want to get in touch with you on a few things and if possible, can you drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can take it from there onwards.
tuttimelon2010-08-06 13:46220.246.x.xI walked past myogurt on friday before it officially opened, so i didnt bother going to the opening.
Anyway i was talking to HKEpi... abt Tuttimelon, cos from its website they have reall pomegranite pieces as toppings, so I was wondering how to get rid of the pips if ur eating there! I wonder if they would have that as a topping here too.
Re: tuttimelon2010-08-06 20:18pomegranate pieces would be good! was surprised when i saw yomama in citysuper (times square)! i'm not a fan honestly - actually prefer the hokkaido soft serve right next door (also new) have you tried it? i like the green tea flavor! and have you tried the white obanyaki? i wanted to get it yesterday but there was a HUGE line and i had to hurry because my car was waiting. well i will probably go again soon.
Yay! hunting foos in similar areas!2010-07-30 11:04 61.93.x.xhi hi, I find it happy that your resturants that you go to are within my reach too! And our workplace/ hang areas are similar lol. Sometimes I find really nice restaurants from eaters, but couild only go to those during the weekend, given that my partner would be able to go too... yet, there are already heaps of restaurants, new or old, that I havn't tried before in cwb, central, wanchai. north point, tst. So for time, I could still stick to these areas hehe
Shanghai 'Jung'2010-07-13 23:35218.102.x.xThe Sticky Rice Dumpling I had in that Shanghai Store - u know the one I labelled as 'phallic' just to see if anyone would even notice and have a laugh, but no one did and congratulations you're the first person who noticed! Anyway, do they serve the same in Shanghai? Because my research online returned quite a different result. I've always been curious.
As for that 新景園咖哩 house, I guess you'll need to try it to see for yourself. Everyone has different opinions.... just let me know afterwards, and if u disagree just feel free to write what you really think, I'm not that 小氣 (unless someone is deliberately doing it endlessly week after week, just to belittle someone else...)
Question:2010-07-12 22:24218.102.x.xOh La Cantina... interesting. Let me look up info on that soon. I plan to visit Shanghai sometime this year, but prob after the Expo I also want to try Martins as my relatives went there and said its pretty awesome - have u tried there yet?
Mak Siu Gei - tried that finally?
CWB Sichuan Shop - please Review it! Not sure which one it is, but is it the one in the little side street, opposite where Irori is? I don't know the chinese name of the place, but then I could be confused with another shop?
Haha you don't need my suggestions la... thought u always came up with your own adventurous findings anyway ! That's what I was hoping to see from you then I follow afterwards!
I know in Tai Hang there's a new Ramen shop opened recently, and Pho Le is really from Vietnam but apparently not so good (I haven't tried yet, may be I should go now!).
Happy Valley wise - well there's a new 麥兆記 opened, but I haven't been to that one, but the Tin Hau one I've been 3 times again lately and still no time for reviewing and PERSONALLY (not forcing anyone to believe!) I thought it wasn't too good
Well Wanchai is always fun, Foodiewil and Supersupergirl know that area more than I do. I like La Creperie though ! But u've prob eaten that in Shanghai! 蘇浙匯 Jardin De Jade also opened in Wanchai and that's from Shanghai as well - I went to the Macau one not HK one though!
If I notice anything probably worth trying, let me shoot you a mail later on ..... ENJOY HONG KONG AGAIN !
Re: Hi!2010-07-10 12:07oh wow - was thinking of trying out Mak Siu Kee in Tin Hau tonight!!! did not know they had a branch in Happy Valley, will try that instead cuz it's waay closer.
I went to 蘇浙匯 in Shanghai! was very authentic and ddelicate food, loved their appetizers. I love eating in different cities in China because the food is SOOOO diverse there, not to mention CHEAP!
I was about to go to Le Creperie for afternoon tea on my last day but had a big lunch and was about to have another dinner with family friends, so just had drinks at a bar called La Cantina in the New World area ("Xin Tian Di") love that district!
OK, let you know how my food adventures go!
btw, I tried this really good sichuan restaurant in CWB in february, about when it first opened, you probably heard about it. i ate so many diff stuff there I should have reviewd it then!!!
hey hey !2009-11-25 03:03218.103.x.xSorry about my late reply ! Yeah I really aim to improve my Chinese typing skills but its going nowhere. I tell you what - I was at my peak writing Chinese when I was around 9-10 y.o. It was all downhill from then on And by the time I type reviews or reply msgs its usually getting late and I'm too tired to learn anymore!
You're absolutely right - hey you got really good eyes, how did u notice my Tote is a Dean & Deluca? Yep Oliver's carry some D&D stuff, its interesting - especially their coffees which I tried making at home! I dun know if they have the Tote for sale or not.
In fact mine is the Japanese version - but not the more popular female size nor the Black version which is all the rage ! I like the US version a bit more too but couldn't get my hands on one, so bought my Jap Large sized one. Its stupid its like 50USD for a recycling bag haha!
Anyway - you got your 100th Review coming up - so when you come back, save it for a GOOD MEAL AND REVIEW HEHE!
Re: 搵到你啦~2009-11-16 13:49hahahaha! i thought you meant openrice when you first talked to me - the stuff i write on biggestmenu aren't even reviews - at least i don't think they qualify! i can't wait to go back to HK in december for more food adventures!!!!!! oh yea, and we can go together too!
(sorry i can't and dont know how to type in chinese - i will learn it some day!)
