The Saturday Club : Alfies

Alfies, as always, is absolutely scrumptious food. For such a beautiful venue, the steep prices are worth every dollar – not like many flashy venues around town that boast a beautiful view and serve mediocre flab. With simple english staples such as bangers and mash, toad in a hole, fish and chips (lauded by some…

Stanley Main Street

Stanley Main Street is a pretty and tranquil waterfront area that is popular for its restaurants, lane-way market shopping and cultural attractions. Beautiful for weekend visits, there are often promenade festivities and other events held in the area. One of my favourite things about Stanley is that it’s a great place to find and buy…

The Saturday Club : Delicious! Giando Lives Up To Its Famous Reputation

Magnifico! Giando lives up to its famed reputation as being a favourite hot spot for delicious italian food. Located on the first floor of the little two storey naval building, Giando’s welcomes us with a bright little entry area decorated with vintage items. Long windows stretch down the side of the restaurant and allow ample light…

The Saturday Club : VIP Treatment at W Hong Kong

SPECTACULAR is the word I must use to describe The Saturday Club’s lunch at The Kitchen in the W Hong Kong, TST. To overcome the slight mental barrier that many HK side folk feel about visiting Kowloon, W Hong Kong provided us with pickup in their fleet of snazzy Audi Q7’s. We were collected in…

The Saturday Club : The Peak Lookout

We couldn’t have chosen a better day for The Saturday Club to be at The Peak Lookout. Bright with slight clouds, slight breeze and reasonable humidity, we are able to enjoy the beautiful ambience of the old colonial building’s wide outdoor terrace area without need for umbrellas or artificial shade – the great branches of…

The Saturday Club : J.A.R dinner

J.A.R may be a restaurant best known for not being known. Recently it has had a slew of great reviews that have piqued the interest of many, but we were introduced to this place through a friend and were delighted enough with the quality and menu selection that we decided to make this the venue…

The Saturday Club : Press Room & Organic Pop Up Market

The Press Room is a high ceilinged space, lit by moody ambient lighting and long windows that stretch along the length of the restaurant. It is bustling and crowded even on a rainy Saturday. Somehow, this place never quite feels cosy, with hard backed and bottomed chairs that some find uncomfortable for a length of…

The Saturday Club : Oolaa & Rare Book Shop

Oolaa is a favourite restaurant of mine because of its quality food and good service. The ambience is fun, sunny and friendly and the experience is consistent, which is very important to me because of my picky nature and various food sensitivities to pepper, onions and oil. This weekend, The Saturday Club chose Oolaa, Soho…

It’s A Fine Life : Afternoon Tea at The Langham

Highlights : Dark chocolate lollypop Rose jam Cilantro crepe roll with celeriac and blue lump crabmeat Tiffin an old colonial word for afternoon tea, and the quaintly named ‘Palm Court’ in the lobby of The Langham hotel feels cosy and comfortable enough to enjoy a selection of sweets and sandwiches with friends for a few…
