Xiao Long Bao 101 at Din Tai Fung

Aahh.. the makings of a good xiao long bao are simple. Delicate dumpling wrapper, seasoned ground pork, lots of soup, and a lot of bamboo steamers on a table. For Xiao Long Bao fanatics, there’s one restaurant that claims fame for this soupy dumpling. Din Tai Fung The New York Times hailed it as the 10 best restaurants in...

Spice Fusion’s Authentic South East Asian Flavors

Spice Fusion Since I’m in Cebu right now for the upcoming Sinulog Festival, one of my priorities is definitely where to eat, aside from Hotel Elizabeth’s Flora Cafe, and where to take my friends out for an awesome meal. One of the places I thoroughly enjoyed during a previous visit was Spice Fusion, a South East Asian Restaurant located...
Eat Well Delicious Kitchen

Eat Well Delicious Kitchen

The name of the restaurant says it all. If you want to “Eat Well” in a “Delicious Kitchen“, run to Eat Well! For me, it’s like the ultimate Hong Kong Chinese Restaurant experience minus the costly airfare ticket to get authenticity. Headed by Law Kwok Keung of Shangri La Hotel Restaurant fame, it’s surely not...

Hush Hush Hunan Haunt

Hush Hush Hunan Haunt

I was excited because my newly acquired aubergine Pasaporte is getting the wear and tear that the two green ones stapled to it have...
HK Holiday, Part Deux

HK Holiday, Part Deux

After the first family day in HK town and a night of debauchery, vodka and Tsui Wah, my bro and I woke up at the unreasonable hour of 2pm! Sheesh. But come on, who wouldn’t want to wake up to a view as beautiful as this one?? One of the perks of staying at the Parklane...
HK = Heart Killer

HK = Heart Killer

Last week I was in HK for a quasi-business trip. Supposedly to attend some expos and shows, the trip ended up being more of a slow walking tour of the jewelry shops north of my HK hotel. The non business side of the trip was just crappy. Slow walking and HK streets just don’t mix....
