Xin Dau Ji 新斗記 @ Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

This restaurant is most famous for their roasted suckling pig but we tried some of their other signature dishes instead…which were also delicious, a great meal overall. By the way, their dim sums are also good and has a wide variety.

Sauteed Goose Intestine in Soy Sause – cooked perfectly


Poach Clams in Broth – very fresh clams, my personal favourite …


Giant Razor Clams in Black Bean Sauce – very soft and freshIMG_1507

Deep-fried Pigeon – a bit dry


Steamed Sponge Cake


Wang Dae Bak @ Cross Street, CBD, Singapore 

the restaurant is located at one end of China Square and was rather quiet at 7pm on a week night. It is nothing like those Korean bbq restaurant you see at the malls. And it is bbq with charcoal. 

    Beef ribs and pork chop – good meat and the marinade was not overwhelming. 

The yellow liquid around the grill is egg and is free flow. I love it when they are half cooked.   
Kimchi pancake – slightly spicy, crispy when hot    
Spicy seafood and tofu soup  

By the time we left the restaurant, it was almost full. We are going to come back with the kids soon! 

8 1/2 Otto e Mezzo Bombana @ Central, Hong Kong

Hubby and I have finally stayed in HK together long enough to find time to try out Otto e Mezzo.  Even though it was a Tue night and I called a few days earlier to book, I could only get the lounge area.  The lounge area is next to the bar, a more causal setting but it has proper tables and chairs so it was not a problem after all.

We chose the degustation menu which was not too big and reasonably priced for a Michelin restaurant.


Complimentary starter


King crab & caviar….very fresh king crab, one of my favourite crab and favourite way of cooking.


Perfectly cooked lobster. Had to eat the sea urchin separately as the lobster had much stronger taste.


Veal shank agnolotti


Beautiful baby lamb…according to hubby, it was good but the beef was even better 🙂


Tender juicy sirloin and beef cheek….wished the portion was bigger :p


My choice of dessert, very refreshing, very pleased with it.


Ricotta tart and ice-cream were tasty too.


Ended the meal with petite 3 and coffee.

An great meal overall – excellent ingredients and perfect cooking.  The only trouble was food serving was very rush and we had to ask them to slow down.
