Crack

My all-time fave chunky chewy choc chip cookie ever, complete with walnuts and pecans. Better than crack. Baked fresh for my Fitfish teammates as thank you gifts for all the love.

One Thirty-One

Ouf! What a lunch. Finally made it to One Thirty-One, the famous romantic restaurant set in a waterfront villa at Sai Kung’s Three Fathoms Cove. Been wanting to dine there since forever and really happy we finally got the chance. The weather could have been kinder, but it was still a great dining experience – you kinda feel like you’re in the Mediterranean rather than in the middle of one of Asia’s most densely populated cities.

We arrived via train and taxi, but you could choose to get there in your boat or helicopter. Maybe next time for us… ;-) Reservations are highly advised – we inititally wanted to go there yesterday but it was booked out for a private event.

Lunch is a flat HK$600+ and includes four courses, plus bread, an amuse bouche, coffee/tea and petit fours. Service was warm and attentive, and the food was flavourful and beautifully presented. I wouldn’t say it’s the best meal I’ve had in Hong Kong, but the entire package – food, setting, ambience, service, and company (of course that’s up to you) – makes it rank up there with one of the top dining experiences in the city.
