Old Sichuan (老四川巴蜀麻辣燙 南京東路店)

It is so cold in Hong Kong / Macau this week.  Only 9C!!! True, it's warmer than Seoul but remember, we got no central heat here so it's the indoor temperature!!!  /shivers  Winter is the most popular weather for hotpot.  As I am counting down the days to the year of the Monkey, I find all my gathering this week (reunion dinners) are hotpot related.  Speaking of hotpot, I miss the Sichuan spicy hotpot in Taipei.  It was recommended by one of my friends and it did not disappoint!

Melange Cafe (米朗琪咖啡館)

Happy 2016.  2015 has been a whirlwind for me.  I expect no less in 2016.  Thank you for the likes, comments, and shares on my blog posts.  I would have stopped blogging if not for you.  I still takes lots of photos when I visit restaurants but I rarely find time to write about them much anymore.  The best way to keep up with me these days is Instagram.  I will still try my best to keep this blog going but I can't really promise more than 1 post a month... So since my Taiwan collection remains the most popular of all, I will continue with this series even though I live in Macau and work in Hong Kong but travel around APAC most of the time.  LOL.

Anyways, this post is about Melange, which is quite famous for its waffles.  My first visit was for exactly that.

La Vache!

If you like steak, la vache! is a decent option in Central, Hong Kong.  The price is fair and the quality is good.

Spring Scream (春吶), Kenting, Taiwan (April 2015)

For some reason, attending Spring Scream in Kenting (墾丁) has always been on my bucket list.  It's like Lollapalooza in the US, Clockenflap in HK.  It so happened Spring Scream was happening the same week as Easter, which means, I only need to take 1 or 2 days off to enjoy a short trip!  Found cheap plane tickets with Cathay, booked my hostels, and off I went!  (Not to mention Yayoi Kusama was having an exhibition at the Kaohsiung Cultural Centre at the time!)  Taiwan is always a no brainer for me when I only have 4 or 5 days of vacation.

Mita Seimen (三田製麵所 阪急台北店)

Mita Seimen  (三田製麵所) is a well known tsukemen restaurants from Japan.  They recently opened a new branch in Hong Kong (February 2015).  With the even more recent addition of Tsukemen Tetsu, the line should not be horrible these days.  Luckily, I tried it when I was in Taipei and there was no queue!
