Shenjing is famous for it’s roast goose in Hong Kong but you don’t have to travel there just to look for good roast goose. Many have learnt the trick of roasting good goose and they are all over HK and Guangdong province of China. One of which, was pretty near my Shenzhen office at Huaqiangbei area, the electronic city of Shenzhen.
The eatery is very very small and usually super crowded during lunch hours. The weird thing is, their meals are not cheap there as compared to some RMB$15 ones along the same road. But people would queue up and pack or dine in. So I gave it a try, and was lucky to find a table.
Taste: Roast goose not bad. The skin is the key factor. Very yummy. Flesh is tender. Char siew is typical lah, lean and a bit chewy cos of the tendons.
Price: As above on the pics.
Service: Fast and poor.
Ambience: Small, crampy and loud.
RTE: Tapao maybe. Will ask the runners to tapao next time.

Day 4 is a long day as I leave the mountains to explore more of Chiangrai. I’m already in love with the city and the scenery it has to offer. Can’t wait to check out more of what this little city has to offer!
Wow what a long and tiring day! This is my last night in Chiangrai, gonna miss this place! Watch out for Day 5!
Was invited for a media tasting recently at this place which I believe many people have not heard of. I was however curious to find out how different it is from the Pulau Ubin cuisine from the ones I grew up with. Nah, I wasn’t from Pulau Ubin, just that my nanny’s brother lives there, and I stay with them during the school holidays. Yes he still lives there. ;P
When I arrived at Gumajia after closing the coffee bar, I was greeted with the group of bloggers there. Very family style, with kids some more, definitely my first time encountering this mix. The table was not big enough to accommodate everyone (we had more than 10 pax on a big round table), wasn’t really comfy but tried to blend in lah.
Check out some of the food that I’ve tried while some were wiped out and I don’t have the opportunity to savour them.
Taste: Love the taste and originality in flavours.
Service: One particular staff was very friendly and helpful. The rest are pretty ok.
Ambience: Nothing avant garde. Typical tse char style.
Price: Listed on pics. No GST and srv
RTE: Mum will love this!
Location: 45 Tai Thong Crescent.
Hours: Daily 11am to 10,30pm (Mon-Fri 2.30pm to 5.30pm break)
Guan Chee HK Roasted Duck has been around for some time but I remember only coming to this place a few times. They are located at the corner of a coffeeshop, roast their meats daily behind their stall, hence you can smell their amazing aroma from the roasting from far away. I was here for groceries after work and managed to catch them before they close at around 8pm.
There are some facts that I have researched on lately that cleared my mind. All along I always thought the Canton-i (http://wp.me/pCcuC-4A) at ION Orchard in Singapore is related to Dragon-i in Malaysia… I was right, Canton-i is under the Dragon-i Restaurant Group of Companies. Whether the outlet in Singapore is a direct expansion or franchise, I’ve yet to find out. The other thing I’ve always thought that Canton-i was under the Paradise Group of Singapore, apparently not, just that they have Canton Paradise under their group which sounds similar.
Anyways this is my second time here at this outlet in KL after so many years… the first time was before I started writing on food some 5 years ago. So I was in town for work and then met up with a friend for dinner to check out their food once again. Check out the pics below:
Taste: Standard still as good as last time. If I had my other foodie friends with me, we could have ordered all their signature dishes.
Service: Excellent. However, you can see the manageress keep eyeing on the other service staff. I feel for the waitresses/waiters.
Ambience: Not as posh as I remember it to be. But still quite comfy for diners.
Price: All that for around RM$200. About S$80. In Singapore it will cost more than that.
RTE: I might but I still prefer the street food wherever I travel. 🙂
Location: Lot No. 1.17.00, Storey No. Level 1, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, 168 Jalan Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur. Tel : +603 2143 7688. Reservations highly recommended.
Haven’t been shopping or even walking along the streets of Bukit Bintang in KL for the longest time and this time I made it a point with a friend who happened to fly in Kuala Lumpur at the same time from Hong Kong. So we decided to catch up over dinner and while we were wandering around, we saw this place with all the signages…
So we decided to check out this place… how wrong can it go when it’s recommended by 蔡澜, the famous food critic/celebrity from Hong Kong. To our surprise, this is suppose to be a foodcourt where they get the best streetfood in Malaysia and house them there! Check out the pics below, and tell me how not to salivate??!!
Taste: Hokkien Mee is really good. We should have tried the wan ton noodles and beef ball noodles but no stomach space. Bak Kut Teh is good too.
I was in Hong Kong for a meeting and was looking for a place for a quick lunch when I chanced upon this little cafe. I found it unique cos the shop is actually located underground of a building in TST.
Then I saw that they are being featured for the best 15 cafes in Hong Kong, then I know I’m at the right place.
Then I went in and found a table at a very nice corner. As I usually eat late, hence the place was empty.
I ordered my lunch like most Hong Kongers do, the sets are usually value for money. Hence I ordered the set of soup, spaghetti and latte for HKD$70.
The soup to be honest are similar to Campbell’s but the spaghetti is pretty good. Looks simple and plain but taste ok. Most importantly, the salmon didn’t stink. Latte is pretty good, nutty flavour, medium bold and served at the temperature of my liking… hot.
The cafe do have sets for afternoon teas as well.
For HKD$70 (SGD$11), definitely worth it and even cheaper than Singapore. If you’re around that area you can pop by and check this place out!
