Now I’m not sure what a traditional Mainland China breakfast consists of, but the only restaurants I found open in the early morning in Yangshuo were cafes serving Western breakfasts and local restaurants serving noodles or congee. Since Western food cost about five times as much as the local counterparts, it’s easy to decide where [...]
With minimal sights in Guilin, my friend and I hopped on a bus to nearby Yangshuo. Yangshuo is more of a tourist town, having a pedestrian street full of foreigner-friendly attractions like pubs, souvenir shops, and my favorite: a night market! Actually “night market” is a bit of a misnomer, as some stalls [...]
Tasty, home-cooked noodles at bargain prices.
I had six days off around Qingming and the Easter Holiday, so I decided to pop over to Guilin, China to meet a vacationing colleague. Eating out was its own experience. Street food was plenty and cheap, though there seemed to be only 4 or 5 varieties of items. [...]
Perfect meal for a cold and wet Sunday afternoon. I somehow ended up in Chai Wan one day, hungry and unsure of where to find food. I found myself at the bottom floor of a mall, where most malls seem to have their food courts. It was a choice between Jika Udon and Ajisen Ramen, [...]
Famous noodles, famous taste. I’ve walked by Mak’s Noodle multiple times on my way to and from my laundry lady (yeah, go ahead… judge me). I’ve been intrigued, mostly due to the prominently displayed review of the restaurant by some famous chef.
The ambiance of the place is of a dirty hole-in-the-wall Hong Kong [...]
Not quite Japanese cuisine, despite the name. With a name like Hokkaido Dairy Farm, you probably don’t expect it to be a breakfast cafe, but that’s exactly what it is. Its interior features decor that’s more modern, but other than that, it’s pretty much the same as every other breakfast cafe.
On the bright side, [...]
Being hungry at 7pm in Hong Kong is a risky venture – all the good restaurants have lineups out the door. The solution for this is to either get fast/shitty food, or go a bit off the beaten track. I don’t mind walking, so it was a no-brainer for me.
I ended up at [...]
A hipster Hong Kong cafe. At first, I figured Cafe Matchbox to be a typical foreigner cafe, but oddly enough, their pretty little menus only list items in Chinese. You can ask for an English menu, but it’s printed on a plain blue paper.
There are two locations, both in Causeway Bay, and I [...]
I should have known better. I arrived in Hong Kong on a Monday afternoon, eager to sample the city’s culinary delights. Unfortunately for me, I chose probably one the worst places to eat, falling for their accessible, English menus (+1). Later, I was told that Maxim’s is considered fast food. Whoops.
To be honest, [...]
A staple of Tokyo streetside restaurants, ramen is characterized as wheat noodles served in a pork-based soup. While ramen is often confused with its instant-noodle counterpart, the real thing is a completely superior culinary experience.
Up until five years ago, a good ramen restaurant was a relative rarity in Vancouver, with Kintaro [...]
