Take Me Back #1: HONG KONG pt.1 – HK Styled Cafes

I finally managed to sift through a portion of my photos from my travels at the beginning of the year! So I decided to compile a photo diary type thing of the food I adored in Hong Kong during a 2 week trip back in Jan-Feb 2014. Wooo! Actually, I don’t know whether I should be happy when all this good food is over 7,000 km’s away…Take me back to Hong Kong!!

I’ll probably need to split these HK post up into at least two or three parts…

56. The Pig & Pastry

This little gem of a cafe was definitely worth that trek out into the suburb of Petersham. Their carrot cake is enough to bring me back many times over. Trust me, despite how plain it looks, it tastes amaaaaaaaazing!

55. Bread & Circus Wholefoods Canteen

When I eat out, I personally find it quite hard to eat healthily. That’s where Bread & Circus comes in – basing their menu around organic wholefoods, the place offers a guilt-free dining experience. Then if you’re a dessert-lover like me, pay Rosetta Stone Artisan Bakery a visit on your way out. I personally couldn’t resist.

54. 678 Korean BBQ

The chilly winter season is just perfect for Korean BBQ!

This new place took off with a >>BANG!<< and I’ve only been hearing good things about it ever since it opened. With my love for Korean BBQ and mentions of Korean celebrities such as the Running Man cast and  Kang Ho Dong (강호동 – both gagman and owner), I was definitely intrigued. And so,  I’ve been twice already :D

52. Rustic Pearl

Located in the heart of Surry Hills aka. Crown St, Rustic Pearl served as a nice catch-up destination for my friend and I. With a Mediterranean influence, they offered some interesting menu items which were a delight to our taste buds.

51. Chinatown Friday Night Markets: Deep-Fried Oreos & Tim Tams + Skewered Twisted Potato Chips

I know, that is one big mouthful of a post title…

Believe me when I say that the Chinatown Friday Night Markets was probably one of the unlikeliest places I was going to post about – mainly because I’ve visited it many times for as long as I can remember. But alas I found a reason when I was walking through one night and discovered deep fried Oreos and Tim Tams!! To cut to the chase, they weren’t that great :( but the twisted potato chip skewers are always nice!

50. Three Williams Cafe

I haven’t been very good at posting lately :( Hoping to pick things up again!

This post on Three Williams dates back to a Saturday afternoon sometime last month but even so I’d like to share since the menu’s probably by and large the same ~ definitely visit this place for the Crunchy French Brioche Toast!!
