Mount Gambier, Australia – Dec 2015


Mount Gambier was a nice change of view for our journey.  We visited a few caves and sinkholes in the area.

The beautiful Umpherston sinkhole.

Tantanoola Caves – the formations inside the caves are simply spectacular.

And of course we tried the famous “blue drink”. IMG_1173

Last but not least the breathe taking Blue Lake by day and night.

We had a good dinner at The Barn.  Reservation is recommended.

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, London


Special thanks to our friend who had been trying to sort out lunch arrangements with Dinner.  Due to the nature of our group (5 kids), the restaurant has arranged for us to dine at their private room (less hassle for everyone!).  Excellent in both food and service! Happy kids too!IMG_2608IMG_2610IMG_2612They have different set lunch menus – the ladies chose the 3-course while the gentlemen took the 4-course one.IMG_2615 First thing first – all kids had steak & fries.  Very tasty and cooked perfectly – crunchy on the outside and juicy inside.  I wouldn’t mind a portion for myself.IMG_2628 Savoury Porridge – frog’s legs, smoked beetroot, garlic, parsley & fennel. Nice juicy frog’s legs.IMG_2629

An orange!  IMG_2634 No, this is the famous “meat fruit”!! Made with mandarin and chicken liver parfait. IMG_2637 Rice & Flesh – saffron, calf tail & red wine.  It was good risotto but the “orange” took all the attention. 🙂IMG_2635

Roast Turbot with mussel & seaweed ketchup, salmon roe & sea rosemary – cooked perfectly, so good my daughter ate half of it (after her steak).  IMG_2641 Hereford Ribeye – good steak but I am afraid the one the kids had was even better.IMG_2639

Another of their famous dish – Tipsy cake – roast pineapple and sweet bread.  Very nice but a bit too filling for the end of the meal.IMG_2644

Cenacolo Steak & Pasta @ Central, Hong Kong


This place is probably better for gathering than romantic dinner cause we found the portions quite big even as a group, or maybe we were too greedy and ordered too much!

Half full after 2 appetizers…

Most generous risotto ever…more seafood than rice! Very nicely grilled and no squid!

Good steak…Glad we had 3 to share, this was probably 200g or 250g and for under $300!

First time trying celebrity restaurant at MBS. The place was quite full consider it was a weekday night. Portions are quite big especially for the steaks
