The average Brit - Limehouse

Booking into this cute little bistro (excuse my, er, French, I don't know what the English call it) proved quite a feat pre-festive season last year. I tried to book a few days in advance for weekdays (like Tue) but in vain. After the eat-meet marathon that is Thanksgiving, Winter Solstice, Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year, things have finally settled down and with a quick call, the booking was granted.

Oinkfest! Kimberley Chinese Restaurant

The view from behind
I'd been wanting to go Kimberley for quite a while, thanks to the delicious accounts on Diary of a Growing Boy and stumbling upon intriguing photos on Openrice - I mean, who can resist a copper-toned piglet stuffed with glutinous rice, rolled up into a gleaming, skinny cylinder? Gluttonous as I am, there was still no way I could finish that on my own. So when the #fatty crew came to Hong Kong (@eatnik, @cloudcontrol), it was the perfect opportunity to round up a bunch of piggy pals, new and old (@par_lor, @wasabi_inferno, @snarkattack, @alexlobov, @coffeemeow and more) for a pigfest.

Coffee in Hong Kong - 18 Grams

It's official. It's been medically proven that I'm addicted to caffeine. I can get migraine-like headaches if I don't get enough of it per day.
