Marugame Seimen chain - do-it-yourself udon

Fairyland - Korean chicken and beer (CLOSED)

The sweet chilli chicken with house-made potato crisps is a triumph. The gooey sauce clings to each chunk ... yet the skin is ... crunchy. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grano Italiano  - pizzas customised (CLOSED)

Grano Italiano boasts that it's the city's first pizza tailor ... If we were to name the pizza we created, it would probably be the Meat Monster

 

 

 

 

R&B  - interesting combinations

Even the vegetables were enticing here. The caramelised cauliflower was enlivened with shallot, smoked paprika and a cane sugar glaze.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ya Kun Coffee & Toast - Singapore fare

The kaya butter toast set was a good breakfast choice. The brown bread was thin enough to really taste the kaya — a jam made from egg and coconut

Espuma - Spanish desserts fantastic

The scallop ceviche made a good starter, thanks to its ... orange and dill marinade. The caramelised chicken wings were well seasoned  ... We loved the sweet stuff

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Goobne Chicken - big portions, flavourful Korean

 Goobne takes pride in its oven-roasted chicken, which comes in eight flavours, including Sichuan, teriyaki, and sweet and spicy ... The chicken was lighter than the fried versions

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hanbing - Korean desserts with a casual vibe (CLOSED)

We would definitely give priority to the sweet dishes, but if you're yearning for something savoury ... there are four topokki (Korean rice cakes) to choose from

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Napoli's Pizza & Caffe, Tsim Sha Tsui

Be sure to enjoy your pizza quickly once it is served, for although it takes just 90 seconds to cook in the wood-fire oven, the pizza also takes no time to lose its crunch
