Pause rewind & fast forward 尋找鬧市中的綠洲-小房子

Good eating, 未分類

pause (16)

Take a break from the ever-busy city life of Hong Kong and escape to a secret sanctuary tucked away in the middle of the concrete jungle.

The hut by Pause Rewind n Fastforward is a piece of paradise hidden inside the top floor of an old Tong Lau in Mong Kok. Opened just several months ago, the place is popular with young hipsters and college students. The cool thing about this place, besides the beautiful floral settings and soothing ambiance, is that no consumption is required, as the owner has designed this place for people to just take a seat and relax. I mean, how can you not fall for this place?

With that being said, that do have a small menu of food and drinks if you’re hungry. When my girlfriend Tobi and I visited the hut earlier last month, we tried their salmon rice ball and tofu cheese cake with iced rose tea which were all so yummy! Most of the upper-floor cafes in Hong Kong charge premium for the food and drinks (due to the expensive rent) while in no way does the price reflect the quality, the hut is definitely a rare exception!

由旺角火車站往洗衣街花園行大約十分鐘的路程,在一座不起眼的舊式唐樓上層,偷偷地隱藏著一個神秘綠洲,讓人暫時忘記自己身處在這個繁忙污染的鬧市中。

小房子是由 Pause Rewind n FastForward 主理,在鬧市中的一個溫室小花園,旨在為都市人提供一個暫時休息之所。 在這裡你可以隨便坐下來打發時間,不用消費。居住在香港這個商業化和擠迫的城市,每天的生活都充斥著各種各樣的壓力,很感動有這樣一班有心人,無條件提供一個地方給大家停下來充電。

小店內擺放著一簇簇的乾花,除了裝飾之餘,原來這兒也有開班教授DIY乾花製飾物;同時它們也有寄賣不同的手作品。

當然,如果想點杯茶或吃點東西的話,他們也有少量主食和茶點提供。 我和朋友就點了三文魚飯糰配紫薯和蟹子沙律,和豆腐芝士蛋糕跟玫瑰茶。有別於一般樓上Cafe,小房子的食物一點也不令人失望!由誠意經營的東西果然是與別不同的💕

6 must try Chinese Restaurants in Hong Kong 6間必吃粵菜餐廳

Good eating

Duddles food

I’m very lucky to say, working for a lifestyle magazine, my job allows me to try out some of the best restaurants in town. Here are my top 6 Chinese restaurant picks in Hong Kong which provides not only high quality Chinese food but also stylish interior design and great service:

由於工作關係,我時常會到不同地方午饎。因為做英文雜誌,而且被掛上”鬼妹仔”身份,很多朋友以為我只食西餐, 事實上我是個不折不扣的中國飯桶! 以下是六間我覺得絕對值得一試的粵菜餐廳:

1) Duddells 都爹利會館

First on my list is the fashionable Duddells which is located on top of the Shanghai Tang flagship on Duddell Street. This private member club welcomes lunch booking but remember to do it in advance. I love their dim sum which is so delicate and tasty. Must try the pork bun it’s so yummy!
我首推位於中環都爹利街的都爹利會館,雖然叫做私人會所,但非會員也可訂坐用饎。由於我上次太遲訂位,3樓的中菜餐廳及小型藝廊已滿坐,我們被安排到樓上藝術沙龍午餐。但這反而更好,因氣氛比較輕鬆。 這裡的點心很精緻,蜜汁叉燒包好好食! 而且他們會很細心的按人數調整每份點心的數量。 同層還有雞尾酒酒吧和露台,有時間的話可以與一班朋友在這裡坐足一個下午!

Address: Levels 3 & 4a, Shanghai Tang Mansion, 1 Duddell Street, Central/中環都爹利街1號上海灘3至4樓

2) Mott 32 卅二公館

Dining at Mott 32 is a unique experience starting the moment I entered the restaurant which is located in the underground of Standrd Charterd bank building. The decor is so amazing it’s not any typical Chinese restaurant you’ve been to. It is well known for its Peking duck and barbecue Iberico pork but as my guest and I wanted something smaller portion we went for dim sum instead. Their siu mai with soft quail egg and black truffle is exquisite. Must try the prawn crispy rice paper, one of the best cheung fun I had.
位於中環渣打銀行地庫的卅二公館 應該是這清單中最感覺最奢華的一間。 這裏最出名是蜜汁頂級西班牙黑 毛豬叉燒 (每天限量)和蘋果木燒北京片皮鴨(―天前預定,只限晩市) 。 上次我和我的客人試了這兒的點心,黑豚肉松露鵪鶉蛋燒賣可能是我食過最好食的燒賣! 另外一定要試脆皮鮮蝦腸粉,燕窩鮮蝦水晶餃和脆皮西班牙黑毛豬叉燒包也不錯。

Address: Basement, Standard Chartered Bank Building, 4-4A Des Voeux Road Central, Central/ 中環德輔道中4-4A號渣打銀行大廈地庫

3) Sha Tin 18 沙田18

So far my picks are all located in Hong Kong Island side, so as a New Territories resident I feel like I must mention Sha Tin 18 at Hyatt Regency Shatin. Its relatively remote location is actually ideal location if you look for somewhere tranquil outside the city. Their Peking duck is so delicious I’d highly recommend.
當然作為新界人,不得不提的是沙田凱悅酒店的中餐館沙田18。他們的北京填鴨超好食! 點心也不錯,適合一家人用膳,是沙田馬鞍山區中餐的首選,週末來說食一定要訂位!

Address: 4/F, Hyatt Regency Hong Kong Sha Tin, 18 Chak Cheung Street, Sha Tin/ 沙田澤祥街18號沙田凱悅酒店4樓

4) Eighteen Sharp

Eighteen Sharp is one of luxury watchmaker Franck Muller’s first restaurants in Hong Kong. It’s usually hard to get a table, so I was really surprised the place was empty when I had lunch there earlier this month. They only serves set lunch with 3 different choices but that’s more than enough because each dish we tried was so good . The black truffle and porcini steamed rice and braised ee-fu noodles was so delicious it’s definitely the best I had.

由奢侈手表品牌Frank Muller 開創的 Eighteen Sharp 午市只做套餐。午市套餐包括頭盤、小菜、主食、甜品,最適合進行商業午餐。黑松露牛肝菌蒸絲苗和鮮菌瑤柱伊麵真的很好很好食!

Address: 3/F, 15-21 Sharp Street East,Causeway Bay / 銅鑼灣霎東街15-21號3樓

5) Empire City Huaiyang 大都淮揚

I went to Empire city huaiyang last time when I attended a seminar in HKCEC as it’s only 5 minutes walk away. This place is ideal for business lunch as it is quite exclusive. Love their food presentation (look below how pretty is the veggie!) and very good service.
在會展旁的大都淮揚 屬於鴻星集團,午餐提供小菜套餐,我喜歡他們食物賣相很精緻 ,而且環境舒適 ,適合商用午餐。

Address: 8/F, Convention Plaza Shopping Arcade, 1 Harbour Road, Wan Chai / 灣仔港灣道1號會展廣場8樓

6)  Lai Bun Fu 禮賓傅

The chef and owner of Lai Bun Fu, master Chef Chung Kin Leung had prepared meals for world leaders such as U.S. President George Bush, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher as well as our CE at the former Hong Kong Government House. There are only limited tables so make your booking early! I like the classy decoration yet cozy ambiance it has. For lunch, the dishes are home cooking style with great service.
顧名思義禮賓傅 是由香港禮賓府的前總廚鍾建良開設的中餐廳。 位處於一中環商業大廈全層,午市套餐菜色比較住家,感覺似食私房菜, 由於座位不多最好要訂位。

Address: 5/F, 18 On Lan Street, Central / 中環安蘭街18號5樓
