The entrance to the building is in an easy-to-miss, dodgy looking alley along Dundas Street. Full Cup spans several floors of Hanwai Commercial Building with each floor catering to a specific theme/vibe. I went on a Monday night to the live music floor (3rd floor) and was able to get a table immediately.Contrary to other reviews I've read, Full Cup does have an English menu so do not fret, non-Chinese readers. You will have access to all they have on offer. I ordere...

For want of foie gras, we decided to go to Bouchon because we figured, where better to eat foie gras than at a French restaurant, right? So up we went to Elgin Street on a sweltering Saturday evening. The place isn't very big and bookings are highly recommended. It should be noted that they have two seatings on weekends - the first one from 6pm to 830pm and the second one from 845pm onwards. We got a booth at the back corner, next to the semi-open kitchen with the fantastic ...

My friends from work took me to this place for lunch on a rainy Tuesday and we got the last available table when we got there at about 10 minutes to one. We spent the next 10 minutes savoring the rich, thick scent of simmering meat inside the tiny restaurant and when the staff started serving at around 1pm, a queue of others hoping to catch lunch has formed outside. We ordered the song lam ho(牛爽腩). Song lam, apparently, is a choicier cut of brisket taken near the flank. As a st...

Another "hidden gem" in Tsim Sha Tsui, Sun Kee is tucked in a tiny, back corridor on the lobby of Champagne Court. The general location seems seedy and the entrance is easy to miss what with a bigger and "louder" restaurant right next to it, but once you walk by and see the countless newspaper and magazine cut outs featuring the restaurant and the celebrities who patronize it plastered all over it's walls, you'll know you're in the right place. And no, it wasn't the cele...

After happy hour cocktails at Solas, we crossed to the other side of Wyndham Street to sample the highly recommended tapas at Zafran where we were met by the friendliest and perkiest restaurant receptionist I've ever met to date. Although we didn't have a booking, we were immediately escorted to the basement where we were given the choice of taking a table or eating at the bar. We opted for bar seats since they had an open kitchen and there's just something very homey and cozy abo...

The place is teeny-tiny and I was lucky I only had to wait 5 minutes to get a table. The customers who arrived after me had to wait much longer for theirs. Orders are taken (and paid) at the little counter on the store-front. I had no idea that this was how it's done here but for the friendliness and great customer service of one of the servers. Thank you, unnamed server, for letting me know and for being so accommodating. I've been craving for Eggs Benedict but ended up with ...

Away from the hustle and bustle of Lan Kwai Fong and Soho, The Salted Pig is located on the 2/F of posh L Place along Queen's Road. As we were ushered to our table, I couldn't help but smile at the über jovial attitude of the staff assigned to us. When we told him that we were there to celebrate a birthday, he immediately told our birhtday celebrant that she gets a glass of wine on the house for her birthday. Good job at winning us over with excellent service! The...

It was late when we went so we didn't need a reservation to get a table at Munch. Although they have set dinners (appetizer + main + dessert + coffee/tea), we opted to order a la carte. First we had the scallop salad:This was so delicious. The scallops were fresh and there's a burst of contrasting texture from the scallops, water chestnut, jelly and avocados. We also ordered the crab cake, which was also pretty good; unlike the experience of some of the other reviewers,...

Brickhouse is located inside a tiny alley sandwiched between two buildings along D'Aguilar Street. There are no giant neon signs pointing you their way and the only clue that you'll get is the myriad of people hanging around inside a dark alley. Go right in, it's safe. They don't take reservations and there's a maximum dining time of an hour and half. This place is always jam-packed and unless you're willing to wait two hours for a table, I suggest coming here as soon as...

Half of the joy in eating a Paisano's pizza is in the size - it's big compared to other pizzas available in Hong Kong, but just regular-sized compared to pizzas in the US. Although the picture below doesn't show it very well, each pizza slice is 12" long, which is 24" if you order the whole pizza. Pretty cool for dainty Asian eaters, huh? We had a slice of Paisano's Pizza and The Godfather - both of which were laden with meat toppings and mozarella cheese;...
