Amidst the bustling modern financial buildings in Hong
Kong’s Central district lies the historical Graham Street Market, between
Queen’s Road and Hollywood Road.
This wet market has been a Hong Kong landmark for 160 years. It still houses vendors generations
old. Meats, seafood’s, high
quality vegetables, dry goods, and all sort of local consumables can be found
in this street and its side streets.
Catch this market while you can - the city plans to redevelop the area in the coming years and
move the market stalls into indoor markets.

Another best friend reunion in Hong Kong. And, it’s a birthday celebration. So there’s nothing better than a nostalgic lunch.
A couple years ago, we journeyed around Nepal and came back talking about our memories of momos and Nepali beer. After walking around SoHo in search of a fun place for to eat with a good lunch set deal, we found Nepal Restaurant. Perfect!
The momos brought back fond memories of our trip. The cuisine and Nepali staff make this place a great find if you’re looking for a Himalayan treat.

Birthday week in Hong Kong means some specials meals are
happening every day. Some are
casual special and some are splurge special.
L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon in Hong Kong is a splurge special
worth taking. The open kitchen (which is in all of L'Ateliers worldwide) is perfect for food lovers. The food is refined and fun. And the
service is a attentive, high quality, and friendly.
The A La Carte selections are pretty extensive. If you can't decide (like I couldn't) the Degustation Menu will not disappoint. Every course is close to perfection, if not pure perfection. The uni risotto and the duck breasts are two courses that are still in my mind and will remain my favorite bites of food for the coming months.
It’s no wonder why Robuchon’s restaurants have been making it high on Michelin lists worldwide.

Growing up in California gave me an appreciation for Mexican cuisine. Specifically, college late night eats really gave me the occasional craving for Mexican food.
I found myself craving Mexican food more and more when I first moved back to Asia. The problem, though, is that it's really hard to find good quality authentic Mexican food. It's localized and doesn't at all fulfill my cravings.
After eating in Lupa and talking to the general manager who's native to Los Angeles, I found out about Brickhouse. It's a hidden gem in Lan Kwai Fong that attracts expats who are also looking for some real Mexican food.
Brickhouse is the real deal and it's such a fun place to drink and eat. It's a great restaurant to go with a small group of friends and share the plates of appetizers, tacos, and more. Plus, there's a good drink selection of beers and cocktails that kill time while waiting for your table and that pair perfectly with the food.
