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. [...]

The ambiance of the place is of a dirty hole-in-the-wall Hong Kong [...]
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, [...]
