Hong Kong, Singapore
Wanna meet for lunch? These haunts of mine are solid. I’ll put the “grubbier” places in another collection. Just leaving it here so... I don’t have to think of places to eat with you anymore 😁😁😂

Dim sum all the way. Weekends only! Weekdays have very limited dim sum options. Love their XO sauce Cheung Fun and their baked char siew pork bun is a winner!

This is the “butcher”/deli segment and there’s another just for food next door, called Quarter Master! Unfortunately it’s only good for burgers. Nothing else is worth the trek to visit 😅
1 Second Street, Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong
This *used* to be amongst my favorite places. Then LVMH bought it and the management deteriorated. Hygiene has become a major problem (all cups, bowls, everything is somewhat dirty and oily, like they need an extra proper rinse) and the food hasn’t been as good. I’m really sad actually. The experience I had recently (1 week ago) at Harbour City made me pretty sad. But I haven’t tried the IFC one to see if it’s also gone totally downhill.

Solid. Great for entertaining. Has Michelin star(s) as well! Dim Sum is priced relatively affordably =)

Best push cart dim sum in Hong Kong! Possibly the only one left in fact! Always love this place. Great for taking guests too!!

From the Nara group in Bangkok. Yummy and legit Thai food, with decently priced lunch sets. Also there are lots of promotions during weekdays if you have specific credit cards.

The best fish and chips in Hong Kong - light battered and crispy! Bit far and it closes at 7pm so it’s great for lunch. Edit: ok I went back and the quality wasn’t amazing. I think they did a special job for “Mrs. Wong” - the auntie who took us here. For us incognito bozos they sadly didn’t bother maintaining their high standards. (Downgraded from a recommendation to a memory)

Omg ok I’ve found the best laksa in HK. Seriously. Where have you been all my life? In a somewhat back alley in a tiny hole in the wall with no windows... hahahahah The sambal chilli is legit. Thanks solely to my Malaysian Pilates instructor 🤩 @elvinelvin

Breakfast has to be damn good to motivate me to eat in the mornings. I’m usually happy with an orange juice and an otherwise empty belly. But if you insist on breakfast, the recommended spots in this list keep me excited! The memories... read comments because sometimes it’s just a matter of convenience =)
After a bit of rain in the morning, I love walking around in different areas around the quainter parts of the city. I find town too commercialised, but there are such nice little spots cropping up all over, as the “sea turtles” (people who study abroad and bring ideas back) make their way home. The slower relaxed ambience of retirees and quiet helps me take a deep breath and relax. That sense of peace that washes over me is intoxicating and I need more days like that. Happiness. Like this cat.
Planning a trip is never easy. I learned that having an itinerary is always better than looking places up when you’re already there. It’s not only a hassle, but also a waste of your precious time when you’re in a foreign country. I’m going back to Singapore next month, and despite the fact that SG is relatively small, there are still a few places on my wishlist that I want to explore when I get there.
