Simple Delights in Lamma Island


One of the most wonderful things about Hong Kong is the diversity of the landscape. If you ever tire of the steel and glass of the city, you can escape to the mountains or hop on a ferry to one of the many outlying islands.  Continue reading Simple Delights in Lamma Island


My favourite meals: travel edition

As I’m currently wishing I were anywhere but here, I thought it would be fun to round up all my favourite meals from my most recent trips.

Medina Cafe’s liege waffles with passionfruit creme actually makes my tongue tingle – I loved this so much I had to get it when I went back.


Burnt Toast offered up the best food for the best prices in an overpriced city in the northern territories. The Gnarly Barley salad has all the fixings of an amazing meal.

Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong – I’m not even slightly exaggerating when I tell you I have dreams of this meal. Those beef ribs at the end… So. Good.

Pepper Lunch

The food courts in Asia are on a whole different level than the ones in North America. They have a ton of variety for good prices, and the process is efficient and smooth. When I went to Hong Kong a few years ago, I tried Pepper Lunch for the first time and was amused by the sizzling hot plate that allowed you to ‘cook’ your own food. This time, we were looking for food and discovered a stand-alone Pepper Lunch store in Sha Tin.

Lee Keung Kee North Point Egg Waffles


I love coming to Hong Kong for the complete change of atmosphere. It’s bustling streets, cramped spaces, and mountainous forests may be surprising to some, but it is definitely a city that is alive at all times of the day. That being said, it is also a city chock-full of delicious food. If you’ve never tried egg waffles, I recommend checking this place out, as it is one of the best on the island.
