Viet’s Choice (Hong Kong)

Located in Sha Tin in Hong Kong

Sometimes, the design and architecture of a restaurant really draws you in.  For example, this restaurant called Viet’s Choice located at the Sha Tin plaza was made to look like a Vietnamese neighbourhood complete with street signs, courtyard, and paintings.  It was really cool!  For that reason, we ended up having a late lunch here.   Continue reading

Hui Lau Shan Healthy Dessert

Located all over Hong Kong

Toronto should have more of these!  Why aren’t these more in the food industry?  Is it because of big-name chains like Tim Hortons and Menchies that crowd out all the small-size snack shops?  Or maybe because Torontonians care more for sugary sweets than fresh fruits (lack of access to these).   Continue reading
