The East meets West in the Grande Dame of the Far East! Open-air stalls, temples, and night markets co-exist with multinational corporations, soaring skyscrapers, and first-world developments on this traditional yet forward-looking city.
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 =) P.S. I’ve added @madamj @chuchen @domtkho and @js7888 as it continues our “breakfast debate”
What I like about Asia is how you’re never done with finding new flavors. I’m always looking forward to these surprises—the flavors and the way it’s cooked is so different from how we do it in France. This can inspire me to create a dish, even though I do not try to copy or do it the same way. I think it’s interesting. I do dim sum a little differently from the locals. Instead of eating everything as they come, altogether, I prefer to eat the steamed first before the roasts. As a Frenchman and a chef, this is something that I do because in France, we start light and we go up.
What I like in Hong Kong is eating in dai pai dongs—nothing fancy, the chairs are plastic, the cutlery is almost plastic, hygiene is questionable, but when you eat there’s a wow factor. I love this contrast. It’s cheap, but out of this world! To be honest, the French, we don’t have this concept too much. Normally, we spend a lot of money on food, but it’s very refreshing to try something yummy yet affordable.
Mobile Legends is the most popular online multi-player mobile game today. It is entertaining, addicting and actually brilliant. Did you know that most heroes (characters) in this game are inspired by either a real person, a myth or a famous character. This is an ultimate fan guide - Let’s put the action to our feet and go on an ultimate tour to check out where our fave heroes originated. Side Note: More often than not, when a blockbuster movie comes out, MOBA will release a new hero that resembles or is inspired by one of the main characters of that movie. Brilliant! Comment on heroes that you think I should add. ☺️

A hundred year old Chinese medicine shop converted into a modern cafe. The owner retained most of the original decor but innovated on its coffee offering and food selections. Very unique place indeed!

Great views of Hong Kong (try and request for a table by the window). Love the interior design by Andre Fu. Well-priced drinks for a hotel bar, good bar food. Very busy for afternoon tea, reservations may be required. Good place for after work drinks.

Extensive list of options for coffee and tea. Their food menu is actually quite impressive as well. Not to be overlooked as a place to have casual lunch or dinner. Can get a bit loud when it's crowded though, since tables are quite close together.

Coffee by the beach! They have a decent menu for breakfast, lunch and snacks.

Acai bowls here are soo good! They've got a nice coffee selection too. Good place to hang out solo, or with one other friend. Only problem is that it can get a little crowded because of lack of space. Would not recommend business meetings here.
