Londoners here we are again: Aqua in Hong Kong.

Is somewhere outside there a view which can seriously beat this one? Aqua in Hong Kong is a thousand time better than Aqua in London – and the latter one is not at all bad, I swear.

Be #optimist! ( plus a main dish every boy will simply adore – I swear!)

A Spanish oasis to escape hot temperatures and noisy roads: The Optimist. The restaurant (but I would rather call it bistro to ensure you are not intimidated by the entrance or the European cuisine) is on 3 floors: ground floor is dedicated to the bar, 1st floor is the bistro and the 2nd floor is for grilled meat and fish. We have been there for … Continua a leggere Be #optimist! ( plus a main dish every boy will simply adore – I swear!)

Fresh and Divine: the perfect Hong Kong brunch for Londoners and Milanesi in town

A terrace overlooking tropical greenery, smart interior décor with a South-Eastern Asia colonial touch: welcome to the fresh&young Aberdeen Street Social, welcome to Hong Kong!

If you are the ‘London type of folk’ (live/work in London/serial traveller to the City) – and you adore to hang out in Milan too-  in your early thirties and you like to explore around overseas you shouldn’t miss this place.

Welcoming atmosphere, high-standard service, smart casual dress code. Ask for a table ‘dehors’ on the terrace on the 1st Floor. If you visit the Aberdeen Street Social on Sunday, make sure you order a Lobster roll from the Brunch Menu.

I don’t usually get overexcited about a ‘prawn cocktail’, but the sweet and tenderly brioche will melt perfectly in your mouth with the fresh ‘lobster cocktail’: fresh and divine! The salty French fries will add the crispiness you will need to completely abandon on your comforting sofa.

The Lobster Benedict (Eggs Benedict with a juicy lobster on the side) taste luxuriously good. The eggs were creamy and the lobster warm and tender. I would change the brown bread with the brioche tough.
