Gymkhana @ London


Our first Indian fine dining experience and with 5 jet-lagged kids!  It turned out to be a great meal and kids were happy.  The restaurant does not welcome kids after 8.30pm so we started early.  They put us in a quiet corner so we don’t need to worry about disturbing others.

Adults had the set menu while kids had a la carte.

Batter Fluffy Flaps @ East Coast Road, Singapore


We were always hesitant to try this place for dinner as it looks too much like a dessert place.  But since it is my boy’s birthday and he loves dessert, we decided to try.

Well, the results…the kids were happy (according to my boy, he has never felt so full before!) and we believe we will come back again.

Teriyaki chicken wrap (with pancake) – yummy chicken, good portion size

Pancake burger with egg and cheese

Spaghetti with prawns in spicy sauce…yummy (yes, there are non-pancake dishes on the menu too)

Highlight of the meal – Oreo pancake + chocolate chips ice-cream + crushed oreo….I only got to have 1/3 of these, my boy insisted on finishing all the rest. :pIMG_0411

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

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 🙂

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.

Osteria Mozza @ Marina Bay, Singapore


We thought about going to Osteria Mozza many times but could never make up our mind cause the kids often want both pizza and pasta, and you could only get either one depending which of the two Osteria Mozza restaurants you choose. Food are delicious and I like that their “individual” pasta portion isn’t too big and just right for the kids.
