The One With Souvla – My First Greek Experience in Hong Kong

It was only when I started to blog this that I realised that Souvla was my first Greek experience in Hong Kong… coz Greek wasn’t on my Food Category list!

Souvla Hong Kong

While I am certainly no stranger to Greek food, my usual encounters were usually restricted to the occasional Greek salad, of which I enjoy the feta cheese a lot. Souvla has been on my radar for some time since it was opened, thanks to its rather active Twitter account @souvlaemp.

The One With Kitchen at W Hotel Hong Kong – A Star-Studded Service

Kitchen @ W Hotel Hong Kong

It was a family-oriented Saturday afternoon, so you’ll have to excuse the lack of an ambiance with that many kids around. A consolation though was the sweeping view of the harbour. It helped that we were seated by the window.

The One With So Far, Seoul Good

Winter is now drawing to a close in Hong Kong, and I still remember vividly the bitter and biting cold of Seoul.

So Far, Seoul Good Day 3

It has been some months since that trip to Korea, and also some weeks since I last updated this blog. Over the years I have come accustomed to the various lapses in writing about my life (sorry, meals) that an excuse seems unnecessary to explain my absence. I am sure I have been missed but hey, the Internet is a vast, deep ocean of things to keep your insomniac nights occupied. By the way, have they found MH 570 yet?

It was my second trip to Seoul, this time made different and memorable because of my better half. I found that if I do not commit these memories into writing, they often fade into bits of information and flashes of memories that seldom made sense, so during the trip I force myself onto a chair every day to type these posts of what happened the day before, ready to be edited, beautified and published for all to see.

So Far, Seoul Good Day 2

Which I did, four months later. It’s late, it’s untimely and it’s unbecoming but, well, it happened. So here goes:

That seems like a long pre-amble to write something and flex my blogging muscles after some weeks of inactivity. Without wanting to make false promises, let’s just hope this post heralds another stream of blog posts – mostly food – to come in the upcoming days.
