Farm to table private dining at ChomChomYomYom

Farm to table is certainly not a new concept. Before the commercialisation of the F & B industry and the importing of foods over long distances during all seasons, eating foods from your back garden was the way of life. Nowadays, we can expect to see supermarket shelves lined with produce that is not locally…

French nostalgie at Les Fils à Maman

You can never go wrong with French food and especially not in Hong Kong. The French have the biggest expat population in the 852 and we are seeing more and more French restaurants and bars opening in the city. I have been hearing some rave reviews from friends who have visited this hidden spot, so…

A not so British experience at Shoreditch

Being a Brit, I do get the occasional hankering for some authentic comfort food from old Blighty.  Shepherd’s pie, fish and chips, beef Wellington and a full English are all on the list of the best of British dishes. Having heard of a Gastropub in the up and coming restaurant area of Kennedy Town and…

Supergiant Tapas & Cocktail Bar

It’s the last day of Restaurant Week and there are so many to choose from, so on their website I was searching for a place to try in Causeway Bay and came across Supergiant. Tucked away on the third floor of Mira Moon Hotel in Causeway Bay is a Spanish fusion restaurant.  The decor follows…

A revamped menu at Il Bel Paese

Il Bel Paese has long been a place where I have picked up some olives, bread and the occasional Gruyere cheese for a fondue party. With quality and authentic produce, it has been the go to place for Italian ingredients. Since 2016, the Italian based Group Casa Rinaldi has taken over this chain of grocery…

A prescribed tipple at Dr. Fern’s Gin Parlour

Tucked away in the basement of the Central Landmark building next to Louis Vuitton, is this mysterious Dr.’s ‘clinic’. I am a huge believer that gin can cure all ailments and back in the day it was indeed used to cure malaria, so a trip to the Dr.’s office was absolutely on the cards as…

A fabulous feast at Fofo by El Willy

Fofo has been on my radar for a while and armed with the Entertainer app, allowing us BOGOF (buy one get one free) on Saturday brunch, this meal was set to be an absolute bargain! I have scoped out their a la carte and lunch menus before and to my dismay the dishes seemed quite…

Employees Only- the hottest spot in LKF

The highly anticipated opening of this NYC speakeasy and restaurant has finally happened and we at Foodbabyhk had to try it!  This late night dining and drinks concept was originally thought up by 5 bartenders who wanted to create a space that catered to the many F & B workers to relax and splash their…

Kyozasa: A homely Japanese restaurant

I have been to Kyozasa many times and it never fails to deliver a tasty meal. I came here for the first time for my friend’s farewell dinner. It seems to be a very popular place amongst expat Japanese and rightly so, they have all the favourites on the menu from sashimi and sushi, salad…

Bond – Tai Hang’s great getaway

Us Foodbabies absolutely LOVE the hip and chilled restaurant vibe in Tai Hang. The area that was once famous for its car repair shops, now has a few great restaurants and bars with none of the hectic Central/Soho atmosphere. This weekend, to celebrate the somewhat sunny weather, we headed over to Bond. Neatly hidden on…

Sama’s EXPLOSIVE soup curry

You would think showers would be limited to April. Alas, it appears that April and May showers, will (hopefully) bring June flowers. In need of comfort food during these rainy May days, my colleagues and I trekked up to Gough Street to sample a Sapporo-an specialty- spicy soup curry! Sama has a welcoming feel with…
