Happy Birthday to me

Regular readers will have to forgive me. I’ve been in Hong Kong the past few days, running around from event to event and meeting to meeting, and simply haven’t had time to post anything new. In fact, I was too busy to even remember that my blog turned one this past weekend (11 March). It’s hard to imagine that it’s already been a year. It’s also mind-boggling to think back on how many new people I’ve gotten to know because of this website. It’s been an amazing 12 months and I’m so very happy that so many people have visited and have enjoyed reading about my greedy and gustatory adventures. Thank you all.

As mentioned, I’ve been in Hong Kong since Friday. Busy busy busy. And unfortunately, because I’m on a work trip, I haven’t really had the time to suss out new or fantastically exciting places to eat. My best two meals so far have been a super-quick bite at Mak’s Noodles–a well known wonton noodle cafe with branches on both Wellington Street in Central and Jardine’s Bazaar in Causeway Bay–and dinner with some friends at my favorite Hong Kong restaurant, Shui Hu Ju–a small but fabulous Northern Chinese restaurant whose “Crispy Mutton in Peking Style” I am addicted to.

I’m off tonight to meet a journalist friend who is taking me to eat in the North Point Market, where she says an ex-hotel chef has set up a wonderfully modest little stall. But the meals I’m really looking forward to–and I promise to post about both of them–are lunch tomorrow at Tribute, a Californian-Asian restaurant in SoHo, and dinner, also tomorrow, at Hutong, the much, much sexier and more sophisticated sister of Shui Hu Ju in Tsim Sha Tsui.

    What a coincidence! I love to eat at Mak’s Noodle too! It’s a must eat eveytime I visit HK and I always go to Wellington Street branch. But there another wanton noodle directly opp Mak’s which just also very good. Portion is bigger and much cheaper, a favorite with the office crowd there.

    I’m always late to the party these days it seems. But still, a hearty HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you, CH. This site never ceases to entertain, educate and entice. Bravo to you, and so glad to have ‘met’ you.
