Rive, Hamburg

Seems as though all I’ve been doing is eating and drinking on my holiday. The grey skies cleared and the sun was shining. No better place for a late lunch than at Rive, the oyster restaurant by the river.

Marketplace Groceries

Took a walk after a light yet fulfilling lunch to pick up some produce for tonight. My local fresh fruits and vegetables market in Central has everything I need. Mixed greens, sweet peppers, cucumbers, button mushrooms and some arugula. Some to throw in a salad and some for my mid day snack with some sesame sauce. You’ll find everything (and more) you would at a supermarket for a fraction of the price! Well at least in terms of produce.

You can also find meat here, but I’ve never been brave enough to get something at the local butcher. It just looks so scary!

Of course I get LN his favourite feta cheese on my way home at a small grocers that sells international food products. The owner was nice and let me take a few pics of his store. I go to this place often as it’s not super overpriced and they offer free delivery for purchases over $500. Really nice when you don’t want to carry bottles of wine, frozen foods and canned foods in the blistering heat of (almost) summer!

Maya

I’ve been stuck for the past few days in a chicken wing phase. I’ve devoured wing after wing at every meal except breakfast yesterday. Three days and counting!

Saw an advertisement on tv for Maya, a Filipino/Mexican restaurant. With endless eateries and bars on the strip by the beach, I thought I’d give it a try.

Started with baked oysters. 250 pesos ($50 hkd) for a dozen baked oysters! They were ok. Lacks seasoning and not as fresh as I thought.

Also ordered amazingly delicious nachos! A good portion too! Not a huge pile of chips that you can’t finish.

As advertised, their signature salads! We ordered the seared tuna salad. Seared to perfection with a lot of balsamic dressing and a few (sunflower?) seeds. My favourite dish at Maya! Nom nom nom!!!

And last but not least, the chicken wings! Crisp wings drenched in a tangy sauce. Super tasty and of course super messy! Just the way wings are supposed to be.

Getting hungry just thinking about all the food again! Delish!
