馬來西亞 @ 元朗

偶然經過這間 南香雞飯 ,見到坐得滿滿,又見到其中食客所叫的 Beef Rendang 椰漿飯看落好正中,於是決定試下

果然是不錯的選擇!難得香港有正宗的香噴噴椰漿飯,海南雞飯,roti pratha ,濱城蝦麺。。  陪埋必叫解辣的 Iced Milo, 一個字:正!

正,是正宗的正!去過馬來西亞返來食 toast box 的朋友就會知道 toast box 一點也不正宗,口味做到7成已經算偷笑!但這間南香雞飯真係做到馬來風味!留緊口水的朋友,就 hurry up 來 makan 喇!

Best Japanese Restaurant in (I think) the world!?

Of all the places I’ve been to, the best Japanese restaurant there is, in my humble opinion, is no other than Gouemon!

From the golden brown crisp on the outside and oh so soft insides Agedashi tofu, to the just perfect Terriyaki chicken, oh, and let’s not forget the lick every drop of yum yum sauce baked mussels, this place is the best!

Even the world acclaimed Japanese restaurants (say Nobu) can’t compare. Sure, other Japanese restaurants may be more fancy, but for good down to earth Japanese food that’s delicious, there’s no better place than here.

(PS: if this sounds like an ad, it’s not. I paid happily to eat here, it’s just so good!)

Federal delicatessen

Honestly, I was a little disappointed with this eatery. Not that it was bad, but my expectations have been set really high by Zomato (a foodie review site) and all those Google searches claiming it as one of the best in Auckland.

Well, it’s not. First of all, it’s North American diner foods (I know, I should have known by the waitresses’ outfits). But no, that doesn’t go against it much. It’s the food portions – they’re tiny!

Small food portions…  Expensive price…  So and so foods….  Nah, don’t get faked by all the raving reviews.

The Grounds Eatery

So, on this visit back to Auckland, I asked a friend for a recommended cafe. Her reply? Grounds Eatery @ Wow Studios! 

And this was indeed a GREAT recommendation! The decor was sooo comfortable, you could easily spend a whole afternoon just lounging on one of the big sofas! We went for breakfast, and the eggs Florentine were made perfectly – crispy bacom, fresh fresh spinach, perfect poached eggs on a bed of sourdough with just the right amount of gooey hollandaise sauce. The Cabinet featured a gorgeous slice of peacan chocolate rapsberry brownie, which was just sweet start for the morning! Mocha was good, finely chocolatey-coffee balanced!

Oh, and to top if off, this has a big kids area, so for those of you who have kids, they can be playing the whole afternoon away while you sip away on a nice mocha!

Odettes – Auckland

Back in Auckland for a while, and for the foodie that’s me, the first place to go to would of course be what a Google search gives as “Best Auckland Cafe”!

And ahh, I can really see why.  Cause the environment is really nice here..  big wide ceiling-floor windows with lots of natural lighting and comfortable couches, nice coffees..  AND most importantly, good fresh foods!!! 

Like the cumin seasoned fat chips, a nice fresh tuna confit with prawn crackers, and a Malaysian satay sauce inspired chicken dumplings….  It’s really a good taste of what’s New Zealand cuisine about! Fresh with fusioned Asian inspired Western Foods! 

So if you’re in Auckland or planning a visit here, this IS worthy of the name of Best Auckland Cafe!

California pizza Kitchen

Good, consistently good – western restaurant where you can get everything from quesedillas to pizza to pasta!

And consistently good is the key here! Cause there are SO MANY new restaurants opening everyday in Hong Kong, it’s often a hit or miss. Some restaurants run really well when they first open, and then they go downhill so fast. But CPK? Never have I been disappointed for the last 5 years!

Starbucks Reserve

First time trying Starbucks Reserve…  No, not that you get to book a table in Starbucks. Refers to a “reserved experience for a selected few”. That’s my take on it anyway.

Anyway, you can be this selected few if you decide pay a premium price for Starbucks. Is it worth it? I’ll say yes! The coffee blend is definitely more exquisite, and though I’m no coffee expert, you can really tell that the barista really treats his beans (coffee beans!) with much more care rather than adding syrup after syrup that goes into a frappucino.

Guess Starbucks going up the premium route is its new strategy? Lots more Reserve places popping up in Hong Kong!
