The Sweet Dinasty, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong

After watching "Symphony of Lights" at the Avenue of Stars, we started our food hunting at Tsim Sha Tsui for our supper. Soon, we were able to find the famous dessert shop, The Sweet Dynasty.

During searching for the dessert shop, I was imaging about its appearance, which is small and tiny like other dessert shops. But when I reached the front door, I was kinda suprised by its appearance, it is nothing different with other luxury chinese restaurant.

The restaurant consists of 2 level, and the golden-themed decoration are very elegance too.

Let's start to eat!! :D

This is the food ordered. Let me introduce 1 by 1.

Tofu Pudding with Red Bean Soup

The pudding is silky smooth; The red bean soup isn't too sweet but there is a thin orange fragrance from the soup.

PS: Tofu pudding is a must-try food at Hong Kong!

Egg Tarts with Bird Nest

The skin of custards looks rough because of the bird nest as the topping. The pastry is very easily crumbled so do hold it very carefully!

Steamed Noodle Rolls with Shrimps

At Hong Kong, the rolls are always served with soy sauce which is different with the sweet sauce or chili sauce for Malaysia's one.

Chilled Bean Jelly with Fresh Mango & Fruits

The chefs use dry ice to create nice visual effect while keeping the dessert cold.

The fruits bring varieties of taste to the springy bean jelly, nice!

Although there was a lot of people in the restaurant, the food were still able to be served in a short period. There are not only snacks and dessert but also dim sum and other cooked food with reasonable price.

A Lorcha Portuguese Restaurant, Macau

The first thing to do once we reached Macau was looking for the Portuguese restaurant. Based on the information of locals, we were able to locate the famous restaurant -- A Lorcha. Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy the meal as i wasn't feeling well. T_T

The restaurant is very small but the ambience is very nice, with Portuguese decoration.

Octopuss Salad with Garlic, Parsley, and Olive Oil

The octopus is served raw by marinated with garlic, so there is a strong taste of garlic. But the looking of the appetizer is not attactive. lol

Spicy Charcoal-Grilled Chicken

This one is superb!!! The chicken is very fleshy and with its little chili spice on it, I had gain back my depleted appetite. Haha...

Macanese Coconut and Turmeric Chicken

Another "thumb-up" main course. The chicken in thick curry and coconut aroma. It is very nice to be served with plain rice.

We were surprised by the portion of the dishes which were served in big portion, each of them are suitable for 2 or 3 persons. The overall of the food is delectable except the appetizer.

The staffs are friendly and they have very nice service. This is the restaurant which shouldn't be missed in everyone's Macau trip. (",)

The China Club Singapore, Tanjong Pagar


I had my company lunch at this classy restaurant to celebrate birthday of my colleague. The restaurant is located at 50th floor of Capital Tower.

As all of the seats are arrange beside the window, people can have a stunning view on the city and the port.

Before the lunch was started, we were able to have little chit-chat while having some drinks.

The restaurant had prepared a private room for us.

Soon, we have our lunch started.

Combination of Roasted Meat and Dim Sum

I really like all of them especially the roasted meat on the upper left part. I found that there was a thin fragrance of wine within the roasted meat.

Double-boiled Seafood Soup in Mini Pumpkin
All of the seafood had been cut into tiny pieces. The soup is rich and the taste of pumpkin makes a good combination with the soup.

Sauteed Fresh Scallop & Sliced Empress Clam with XO Sauce
This is what a fresh scallop should be!! So tender and juicy. The XO sauce is kinda spicy, but I love it very much!!

Steamed Fillet of Sea Perch

The fish is very soft, and the taste is enhanced by the lily buds and wolfberries.

Longevity Ee-Fu Noodles
This dish is kinda inferior than other dishes because of the noodles which had lost its springiness.

Chilled Avocado Cream with Vanilla Ice Cream
This is the worst ice cream that I have ever met. First, the ice cream tasted like coconut more than vanilla, and it was "over fozen" until hard to be scooped by the spoon!!!

The ambience and location of the restaurant makes it a perfect place for fine dining or business dining. The food here didn't totally meet my expectation (the ice cream contributed the most) but it still costs about S$106 per person. (0.0)

Anyway, what a regret that the China Club is only opened for members. (",)
