Date Night

To alleviate my Sunday evening depression, food and entertainment is in order. Finally going to see Hangover 3 for a good laugh. I must say, much better than I expected considering the second one was rather shit. Aside from the bucket of popcorn I stuffed my face with, LN and I had a light meal at Sorriso.





Some fun and games at the children’s arcade to finish the night as Macau’s casinos are too far.


A great finale to the last weekend in Hong Kong before our trip to Europe.

Trattoria Doppio Zero

Lunch in the Sheung Wan neighbourhood. A quiet Italian offering set lunches even on weekends. Mix and match and pair your choice of appetizer and sandwich or pasta. Depending on how hungry you are, get a full or half portion. I like the flexibility!

Warm mozzarella over a bed of salad.


Bruschetta with parma ham and cooked melon and whipped ricotta.


Spaghetti Bolognese in a “traditional Bolognese” sauce. Looked bleh but tasted wow!


Linguini Vongole with clams from Manila.


An eatery that I’m growing more fond of. It’s nearby, it’s good, it’s flexible and it’s reasonably priced!

Lunch at Bene

The weather here in Hong Kong is still horrid! I even caught a bit of a cold. But that didn’t stop me from taking a short weekend trip to good old Macau.

One of my favourite things to do in Macau is to dine! There are so many good restaurants in and outside of the popular tourist area and hotels. One of my favourites is Bene. Not only is it convenient when I stay at the Sands, the decor is beautiful and food is good. A value-for-money eatery that isn’t pretentious and very Italian.
