Maan Coffee (Shekou main branch) – Shenzhen, China


This coffee house is located pretty far away from where I used to stay in Shenzhen. They are at Shekou are which is around RMB$80 cab ride from my place in Futian district. Shekou is a place where there are loads of expats, reason is there are factories in that area and also there are direct ferries to Hong Kong International Airport where there are more flight options to reach their home/destinations. Shenzhen International Airport is practically a domestic airport with a few international flights… The gate for the international flights shows… small and a lot less grand than that of … Continue reading Maan Coffee (Shekou main branch) – Shenzhen, China

小桃园酒家 Arcadia Restaurant – Shenzhen, China


In Guangdong China, you have to eat dim sum. But where to have dimsum since everywhere has dimsum? One of the best places for good dimsum is not in a 5 star hotel or some posh restaurant but at this Arcadia Restaurant located in Luohu of Shenzhen. This place is really crowded and dimsum is available from 9am-5pm daily. This time, I had one of the best tables with the lovely view of the river that divides Hong Kong and Shenzhen. Check out my video below: Overall Rating: 5/5. Good price, taste good, good views! Location: 罗湖区人民南路1168号罗湖商业城写字楼5字楼5007铺.   Tel: 82322833 Continue reading 小桃园酒家 Arcadia Restaurant – Shenzhen, China

沙县小吃 – China


I didn’t write which city this time because this is everywhere in China. I don’t think all of them are franchise or even part of a chain, just that the menu is almost the same. Nevertheless I’m writing about this because this is what the mainlanders eat day in and out due to the cheap prices and also accessibility. I used to eat this a lot from the day I moved to China, till I left. Nevertheless, I want my readers here to know where are the affordable food in China as well. Overall Rating: 4/5. Very value for money … Continue reading 沙县小吃 – China

吉兆手握寿司 – Shenzhen, China


A couple-friend in Shenzhen asked me out for dinner recently and we decided to check this place out in Dongmen, one of the shopping places in Shenzhen. I seldom go to Dongmen reason because the place is always extremely crowded and it is a notorious place for pickpocket syndicates. Nevertheless, I would be extra careful whenever I’m in the area. Found the restaurant which is just across the street of the new 1234 Mall, and had to wait for our table. The queue is even longer during weekends! Check out my comments with the pictures below: Overall a decent place for … Continue reading 吉兆手握寿司 – Shenzhen, China

Dapeng Peninsula – Shenzhen, China


I have been in Shenzhen for the longest time and I’m always faced with bad pollution and congestion in the city. Never knew this Dapeng Peninsula really exist within Shenzhen! Partly also because I don’t have a car here. If I do, I’ll be venturing to look for chill out spots and of course, food. 🙂 Dapeng Peninsula is situated along the coast east side of Shenzhen, within Longgang District. A fishing village, their attraction is the fortress that was built in the year 1394 to protect the village from pirates. The trip there from the city is around 2 … Continue reading Dapeng Peninsula – Shenzhen, China

深美餐厅 – Shenzhen, China


If you’ve visited Shenzhen, China, you probably might not know this place. Although situated near the Futian customs, this place is not known to tourists or even most locals. Located at the midst of Shui Wei Village of Huanggang Town, you can’t miss this corner cafe with its nicely renovated interior and exterior.  Check out the food I tried below: Rating: 4/5. Confusing menu which I’ll write about in my next post! Taste: 5/5. Value for money and taste good at the same time! Portion: Average. Service: 4/5. Quite good service overall. Ambience: 4/5. Nice decor but smoking still present … Continue reading 深美餐厅 – Shenzhen, China

木屋烧烤 (Wooden Hut BBQ) – Shenzhen, Guangdong, China


Been here many times as it’s prolly the best BBQ place in Shenzhen and some say China. My friends who have been here with me would agree and I believe they are still reminiscing about it. 🙂 Although this place is walking distance from where I stay, some control still need to be exercised. The good thing about this place as compared to their roadside competitors, is that they have a nice woody theme ambience and that the food is somewhat ‘cleaner’ and has more variety. Check out the pics below and drool. Rating: 5/5. Taste: 5/5. One of the … Continue reading 木屋烧烤 (Wooden Hut BBQ) – Shenzhen, Guangdong, China
