Brunch at an Insitution

Staying at the Hyatt TST gave us the perfect reason to eat at their fine-dining restaurant Hugo’s, a place that I have never been, whether that be at their original location at the old Hyatt on Nathan Road or the one at its current location.

Back to Normal (Kinda)

We were at our friend A’s restaurant Nikushou on the first night when the "dine-out until 10pm" restriction was lifted. When everyone in town seems to be out and about eating and drinking, we were glad to score a table at this popular restaurant at the last minute - thanks to whoever bailed and freed up the spots.

Seafood Boil

Seafood Boil is always a good option if you need to entertain at home with little time to prepare. Not sure if it’s an American-only thing but you can see different versions of seafood boil dishes served at every household starting at around the July 4 weekend all through summer, from New England to New Orleans and from Chesapeake Bay to San Francisco Bay.

In-Room Everything

We came to the realization that stay-cation in town is perhaps the closest thing we could do in place of travelling, so we went for a weekend “getaway” to the Four Seasons again. We were here at just around the same time last year, but what a year this has been since – to start, the beautiful swimming pool, sun deck and even the gym were off-limit this time because of the pandemic restriction.

Beginning of Another Staycation

We couldn’t think of a better way to start our staycation at Four Seasons with lunch at the Michelin-starred Lung King Heen. It seemed like centuries ago since we last set foot here but nothing much has changed at this fine-dining Chinese restaurant – I admired the consistency of execution by Chef Chan Yan-tak and his team.

Matsutake Kaiseki

When a friend of ours passed us a batch of freshly picked Matsutake mushrooms from Yunnan, I decided to turn that into a feast of mushrooms for six people, Iron-chef style.
