The McSpicy ♥ ♥


So I've been seeing and hearing about it EVERYWHERE. 

The McSpicy.

I always have a soft spot for McDonald's. (Read about it here.)

Filet-o-fish is my first love, long before chutoro, Chilean sea bass, shad fish, boneless bangus, and daing.

I try all of McDo's new products, treat myself regularly to my old favorites, and wait patiently for Twister Fries to make a comeback. 




But today, I am here for McSpicy




P120 gets you a complete meal! (Wow, didn't think this was still possible!) 




Not a fan of carbonated drinks so I upgraded the soda to my favorite childhood drink - Nestea!
Lol! :D




 And there it is. The McSpicy.
It's huge and crunchy and, don't worry, it's not THAT spicy so you can stop worrying about
the sweat glands situation




100% chicken meat with just a little heat



On another note, I thought the McSpicy TV ad was really hot. Watch it here.



Obviously, these men thought so, too! ;P




I wanna be as sexy as this when I eat



Believe me I tried! Ask the McDo staff and customers who were snickering at me!



But this was the sexiest I could manage. Sorry!!! 


At least I'm a mowdel who eats her burger.

Honolulu Coffee Shop 檀島咖啡餅店 ♥


IMG 7915

Hungry tummies late at night brought us to Honolulu Coffee Shop



IMG 7894

This place is supposedly famous for its coffee and egg tarts



IMG 7891

Honolulu Coffee. Mehhh. Creamy enough, but not strong enough.



IMG 7892

My Iced Malted Milk Tea was excellent!



IMG 7914

Pork Chop and Onion over Rice. Hello, cornstarch and meat tenderizer!



IMG 7903

Stir Fried Gai-lan Vegetables



IMG 7902

Beef Noodle Soup



The food wasn't great, it was standard Hong Kong chachanteng fare.

But I couldn't ask for better company.

Hutong, Revisited ♥ ♥ ♥


I love bringing Hutong virgins to the Aqua group's Chinese restaurant. 

Just look at the interiors. It never fails to bring awe and amazement to people's faces.

The harbor view ain't bad, too!

Ask for a table by the window. Warning: It can get very romantic. ♥



You must order my 3 favorites. These are no-fail dishes that I have EVERY time I come to Hutong.

(You can see more dishes in my previous post by clicking here.)



IMG 2220

1. Crispy Deboned Lamb Ribs
The skin is so crispy and the meat so tender and gamey. I can finish a serving all by myself.



IMG 2224

2. Crispy Soft Shell Crabs with Sze Chuan Peppers
See those redness? This is waaaaaayyyyy hotter than your date so don't order if you can't 
take the heat! 



IMG 2225

3. Spicy Ground Meat with String Beans
Because vegetables are good for you. 



IMG 2222

You can skip this plate of Minced Pork and Fennel Seed Dumplings. The skin's too thick.



IMG 2228

Black & White Sesame Ice Cream and Jasmine & Mandarin Sherbet

Sagano ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Sunday dinner with my adoptive family was at the Japanese restaurant inside
Hotel Nikko Hong Kong



IMG 9933

I was surprised Sagano was so quiet on a weekend because it serves some of the freshest
sashimi and some of the most melt-in-your-mouth beef I've had in the city



IMG 9954

Because we were a laaaaaaaaaaaarge group, I only took photos of the food
on my side of the table 



We ordered a sashimi platter, some sushi and 3 set meals to share among 5 people.
