Spiga – Central, Hong Kong

My cousin J (who is a total foodie as well!) recommended Spiga to mum and I for a quiet but nice dinner. It’s a super cool space in one of the big sky scraper office blocks in Central. I’m still getting used to the fact that […]

Meen & Rice – Repulse Bay, Hong Kong

Meen & Rice – Repulse Bay, Hong Kong

We were lucky enough to have some amazing weather while in Hong Kong! It was so unusual for April. I’m talking about clear skies, warm, sunny days. It made total sense then to spend some days with my cousins and nephew playing in the sand […]

Café Causette @ Mandarin Oriental – Central, Hong Kong
