The Seafood Bar @ Amsterdam

Fons de Visscher was a respected fishmonger for already 27 years in Helmond; a city in Brabant, when he decided to start a new venture. Driven by his passion for fish and great wines, Fons created The Seafood Bar. The first Seafood Bar opened its doors in 2012.

Tsim Chai Kee 沾仔記 @ Central

Wanton noodles in Hong Kong is like chicken rice in Singapore, it’s so difficult to find one that’s really good, but you can’t really find one that’s really bad as well.

Madam Goose @ Shanghai

This was one of the controversial Michelin 1* restaurant in Shanghai. Like Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken, Madam Goose offered very simple roast goose.

Liao Fan @ TPY

When Hawker Chan got his Michelin star, he would not have imagined how his simple store in the Chinatown market would become an empire that has branches in Taipei, Sydney, Hong Kong, with more opening soon in a city near you.

Estado Puro @ Xintiandi, Shanghai

I was craving for Spanish Tapas for Lunch – simple, easy, satisfying, single servings. Eat as much, or as little as your heart or your stomach desire. It’s difficult to find a good Tapas bar in China. Maybe contemporary tapas from Spanish celebrity chef and molecular gastronomy proselytizer Paco Roncero called Estado Puro may cut…

Terrior Parisien @ Shanghai

For Alléno, 2017 is a good year (and busy), possibly only second to 2007, when he’s awarded 3 star for the first time. Le 1947 became the only 3 star entry in France this year, and his 3 star Alléno Paris au Pavillon Ledoyen made into the World’s Best 50 List for the first time ever, ranked…

FOC @ Hong Kong Street

Hong Kong Street (HKS) is one of the small, parallel streets criss-crossing two main thoroughfares of South Bridge Road and New Bridge Road. Once a dingy, dirty street with many dry goods 海味 shops only frequented by restaurant owners buying ingredients for their shops, and home to a very famous street side tzechar store called…

L’Atelier de Jöel Robuchon @ Bund 18

  This is not the first time in a Jöel Robuchon for me. I had dined at his L’Atelier in Taipei, Hong Kong, Singapore and his flagship Jöel Robuchon in Singapore and Paris. In all these places, the food can only be described with one adjective – decadent.

Tempura Mikawa @ Roppongi Hills

Roppoingi Hills ia an upmarket residential and a favourite among expats in Tokyo because the shops are usually expats-friendly with English menus and sometime English-speaking staff. Mikawa is just next to Sukiyabashi Jiro. Mikawa had 1* from 2010~14 and lost it in 2015.

Michelin Shanghai 2017

The first ever Michelin guide for Shanghai was launched with 26 restaurants gaining stars in the first edition in mainland China. What’s with calling it 2017 edition? It’s another 4 months to Auld Lang Syne.
