Hong Kong: Baby Mon Cher Cafe

Every trip of mine includes a visit to a cafe. I was doing the itinerary for my HK trip and came across this Japanese bakery – Baby Mon Cher which located in the basement of Sogo. Baby Mon Cher is a smaller baby version of the Japan Patisserie Mon Cher, which is also originally from Osaka.

HongKong: Mak’s Noodle

During my last trip to HongKong which was 2 years ago, I visited Mak’s Noodle at the peak which eventually became my most favourite dish in Hong Kong ever. I missed the wanton noodle they served because its the only wanton I ate that have fully wrapped with fresh prawn and nothing else. The wanton we often ate were prepared with pork minced and prawn… which was nothing like Mak’s Noodle. Aside from that, the soup is heavenly tasty. I love the serving because its really just nice for 1, despite many people think its really way too small. We visited the outlet at Wellington Street which is the original outlet that the founder and his son-in law ran till 1996. Right now, the business was succeeded by his second son.

HongKong: Ichiran Ramen (一蘭ラメン)

when I knew that Ichiran opened their franchise in Hong Kong, I was so delighted.
Ichiran have been around for many years and has been really popular in Japan.
Many people tried it and agrees how great the soup is, and how different it taste from others.

And so, I visited Ichiran in Hong Kong, Causeway Bay.

# the reason behind this concept is because, japanese want you to savour the soup in a silence environment.
