2/3 Dolci @ Lee Gardens Two, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong


A small cafe on the 1st floor of Lee Gardens Two – only about 15 seats. Excellent place for a shopping tea break. They serve light salad and sandwiches, gelato, cakes, tea and coffee. Their coffee was good but I like the tea better. Very pretty cake and the ones we tried were not too sweet. We had guava gelato sundae and it was heavenly. 

   

Guava gelato, guava jelly, guava fruit, meringue ….

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

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.

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.

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

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.

Amber @ Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong (re-visit)


Finally got the chance to do weekend lunch at Amber again and this time round brought along the kids as well.

Hung’s Delicacies 阿鴻小吃, HKIA Terminal 2, Hong Kong


I don’t prefer eating at restaurants in the airport because they are generally not that good.  And I have never been to Hung’s branch in North Point partly because I don’t like queuing. But I would say Hung’s at the airport is worth a try if you are looking for a good meal at the HK airport.
