Omakase (お任せ) @ Ana Sushi

We decided it was best to just leave it up to the chef to be creative for us (Omakase), because with almost 2.5 Liters of sake between the 4 of us I could barely steady my camera to take pictures of each dish.

The Lounge at Four Seasons (HK)

It was quite relaxing just munching on dainty little savouries and sweets and talking about nothing in particular.

Munch Salsa

Make it the ahead of time. Chill it. Keep it. It's even better over night.

I'm at a Cat Cafe right Meow

I think Cat Cafes are awesome, now all they need is wifi.

Fisherman's Wharf

One of my fondest memories as a child was visiting the Fisherman's Wharf at Steveston in Richmond with my parents on the weekend.

Dinner with Friends


Alaskan King Crab dinner with friends at Lucky Tao in Richmond


King Crab served three ways. The legs were steamed with garlic and butter (super delicious!) and the knuckle part was deep fried with jalapeno giving the crab meat a nice kick to it. The last course - the crab shell was turned into a fried rice topped with fish roe. Everything was pretty good, just a side note - the service of Lucky Tao could of been better, but I guess they're just a typical Chinese restaurant that lacks service but makes it up with reasonably tasting food. Anyways I had a great time, especially when you're eating with a group of wonderful friends who enjoy dining out just as much as I do.


Hope you guys enjoyed this as much as I did!



 Enjoy folks

Brunch at Catch 122


Catch 122 Cafe Bistro
Hanging out with some new friends


Oh I totally adore brunch  it's probably my favourite meal of the day. A bunch of us went to Catch 122 to try out their brunch menu, and I totally loved it. 

I also really liked the interior of Catch 122, it felt so cozy with all the wood and brick and the warm lighting.

Catch 122's menu is a good size and not overwhelming and they have a good selection on coffees, teas and cold beverages. I was really excited for my food because I love smoke salmon and poached eggs, and the croissant they have was so delicious and fluffy! (this dish was called The Catch 122)


We all pretty much ordered the same thing, except for the two A's, One of them had the Duck Prosciutto Eggs Benedict and the other one had the Braised Short Ribs Eggs Benedict. I was very tempted to order the Benedict's because I love hollandaise sauce - I should of had a side order of the hollandaise sauce for my poached eggs - Oh well next time!

We also shared a basket of baked goods - my favourite was the banana bread and the croissant! Thanks H for ordering it ♥ 

Anyways I would love to come back to Catch 122 for dinner next time ♥ because A said their dinner was pretty amazing. 

Hmms maybe I should take T here once he's back from Hong Kong, I am sure he will appreciate some poached eggs and hollandaise sauce!

Bye for now.

Banff Restaurant Scene


Checking out the local eats in Banff


Saltlik Steak House - they definitely have one of the best Caesars. I loved the entire meal <3



Cute little place for brunch - totally forgot the name of this little eatery, but again Banff Village isn't very big so I am sure you guys will stumble upon it.



My first fondue experience at The Grizzly House - and oh my was it enjoyable! Cheese and bread and exotic meats! What a treat. Oh and the reason why the pictures are in black and white is because the restaurant was super dark and none of the pictures turned out great. 

So I decided to be artistic and changed all the pictures to black and white. Enjoy!

Bye folks.



Its been awhile folks!



Recap of my food adventures - and Youtube channeling 

I have been busy exploring the world of Youtube. I have quite a few favourite Youtube channels that I follow and absolutely adore, especially cooking ones! 

So I thought I would give it a try and have a channel on book reviews because I love to read ♥  It has been a very positive journey so far and I do want to thank everyone that was so super supportive! I also see a difference in having a Youtube channel versus a Blog, I find that the blogging community is generally friendlier then the Youtube community - just my observations from reading comments on Youtube channels and on Blogs. 

Anywho... everyone's a critic - can't let them stop you! Just keep on swimming folks ♥ 


This is a recipe from Gordon Ramsay's cookbook A Healthy Appetite. I hope everyone enjoys watching it because I had a lot of fun filming and directing it (even though I didn't do any of the cooking - but believe me framing the shots and coordinating with the "chef" was quite difficult but fun!) 

We didn't follow the exact recipe because we were limited to what we could buy in terms of the ingredients, but it definitely turned out delicious and looked pretty close to the book cover!

This is the EXACT recipe from Gordon Ramsay's cookbook A Healthy Appetite. 

Serves 6
  • 2 2/3lb (1.2kg) Prime beef filet in one piece
  • sea salt and black pepper
  •  2 tbsp olive oil
  • few handfuls of wild arugula leaves
Tomato tarragon dressing
  • about 6 ripe plum tomatoes
  • 5 tbsp ketchup - Gordon Ramsay has his own home made ketchup that he used
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • few dashes of tabasco sauce
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 shallots peeled and minced
  • large handful each of tarragon and Italian parsley chopped
To make the dressing
  • cut each tomato in half and squeeze out the seeds
  • mince the flesh and place in large bowl add the rest of the ingredients except the herbs and mix well
  • season with salt and pepper to taste cover and let it chill for 20 minutes or until ready to serve
Heat the oven to 400 degrees F ( 200 degrees C) and preheat the roasting pan
  • Salt and pepper all over the beef filet
  • heat a nonstick skillet with olive oil and when its hot add the beef and sear for 1 to 2minutes on each side until evenly browned all over
  • lightly oil the hot roasting pan and transfer the beef to the pan
  • roast for 25 minutes - 30 minutes for medium rare beef
When ready to serve, mix the chopped herbs into the dressing serve it on the side with the arugula.
