I had a couple of days free in Toronto recently and I wanted to visit a number of restaurants and bars with a good selection of local Canadian wines to try by the glass. I quickly generated a shortlist and one of the places that came out near the top was Enoteca Sociale. While they […]

Dinner at the 3* Michelin Caprice in the Four Seasons, Hong Kong. This was actually mid last year, but I’ve never been especially happy with the photos. I’m posting to clear the slate so I can post some reviews from Canada and France, hopefully the standard has remained high in the year past. This meal […]

The final night of our (not so recent) stay in Hong Kong was at the newly opened Ritz Carlton. Tin Lung Heen was not full on the night we were there but I understand it is now exceptionally busy, especially for lunch. The view from Tin Lung Heen is very impressive, although it is out […]

Dinner at Tetsuya Wakuda’s fairly new venture “Waku Ghin” in Singapore. There are two seatings per night and the first must have been running late as there was a 10-15 minute wait at the bar. The restaurant is divided into a series of rooms each with seats at a counter and large teppan. The majority […]

Lunch at the Cantonese restaurant in the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Central, Hong Kong. This restaurant was highly recommended on various forums/blogs and it was indeed very good, but also relatively expensive. We arrived slightly early and were invited to wait at the bar outside. The bar has a great view of the harbour from […]

Lunch at Robuchon a Galera in the Hotel Lisboa, Macau. The food was outrageously good. The presence of gold leaf on almost everything was pointless but didn’t detract from the meal. Loved that the wine list comes either as a massive leather bound 300+ page tome or on a somewhat more modern ipad with searchable […]

Dinner at the Cantonese 2 Michelin star restaurant at the Hotel Lisboa in Macau. This was an interesting meal, with a couple of dishes that I struggled a bit with, but overall I liked it and I think I can see why it is well regarded. Lighting for photos was not super either, so they […]

We made a last minute booking for the pre-theatre dinner (starting from 6-7pm) at Guy Savoy in Singapore. We arrived right at 6 and they were still getting the restaurant ready for the evening, we sat for around 10-15 minutes in the loungue area and the staff brought us some small bites while we waited. […]

Lunch at the Cantonese 3 Michelin star restaurant in the Four Seasons Hotel in Central, Hong Kong. Overall it was very good, the setting was very nice with lots of natural light and a view of the harbour, the service started badly but recovered well (see below) and overall the food was excellent. Cuisine: Cantonese […]

We had dinner at this 2 Michelin star restaurant in the Langham Place Hotel in Mong Kok. I really thought this was excellent with a mix of exceptional dishes and great service. Lived up to the Michelin rating. Cuisine: Cantonese Service: Great, very friendly and no problems at any point. Food: Roasted crispy pork w/ […]
