Teakha – Hong Kong

19 octobre 2014 § 4 Commentaires

  Teakha was on top of my list of addresses to visit. I saw it in my cityguide, and their Green tea cheesecake looked very tempting. It is hidden in the calm Tai Ping Shan street, near Man Mo temple. The chinese characters « 茶 家 » are for Tea « 茶 » and « 家 » family, house.

They have a vast selection of drinks with tea, and I chose the Chai Tea Latte, (my favorite!) with the cheesecake. Their organic products are from Asia, and their pastries are prepared here.

I have tried so many Chai Latte in different places, I think Teakha’s Chai can be considered as one of the best I have tried until now. The spice was strong and was perfectly matching with my pastry. However, I wish the Green tea taste was more present.

Wandering in Sheung Wan – Hong Kong

17 octobre 2014 § Poster un commentaire

  Sheung Wan was by far my favorite area when I was in Hong Kong. It reminded me of Le Marais in Paris, and I came across many shops, cafés and restaurants. After having fried noodles at Tsui Wah at 3am, I was unable to eat anything the next day. I went to Pressed Juices on Hollywood Road: they have Juices, smoothies but also different flavor of almond milk. I tried their greens (N°1&N°2 : apple, celery, cucumber, kale, lemon, lettuce, parsley, spinach). You can also order by phone if you are on a cleanse.

  When I said to the salesperson that I was here for traveling they recommended me to visit the PMQ building, which was just in front of the juice store. I was very lucky because it was the last day of the exhibition « Leather Forever » organised by Hermès. A craftswoman was making a Birkin bag and there was a mise en scène of all their other iconic bags.

Elephant Grounds – Hong Kong

  Not far from the bustling Hollywood Road – on Gough Street, inside the concept store Woaw, you can find Elephant Grounds coffee. It is one of the two places in Hong-Kong to propose « Bulletproof coffee ». It was the first time i saw it on a menu, so I was curious to try.

  What is « Bulletproof Coffee »? The barista explained to us that it was coffee + fat (Unsalted Butter + MCT oil). It is supposed to be very nutritious and healthy.

When I drank it, it was like a latte but more heavier. I felt really full, and had no dinner after.

You can have your drink with « Homie’s Cookies ». And only on Week-end, they propose limited edition Ice Cream Cookies. You can check on their facebook page for the flavor of the week. I was lucky to have the Chocolate Mint Pop rocks!

If you are in the area of Sheung Wan, you should definitely visit this little gem. There is also a small terrass where you can sip your coffee when it is not too hot outside.
