This is the second of three posts on where I plan to eat in Beijing, Hong Kong and Macau during my two week trip in October. Part of the fun of traveleating is the planning stage, and more than anything, I love researching local food shops, markets, cafés and restaurants. As I’ve exhausted myself on Where To Eat In Beijing – the list is still only partially complete – I thought I’d write about where to eat on the day trip to Macau from Hong Kong. Then onto the huge task of trying to finalise the Hong Kong list!

Soseki sansai chawanmushi

Imagine my delight when a Japanese friend told me about new restaurant Soseki‘s ‘soft opening’. I love hearing about new restaurants anyway, but when I found out that the food was going to be free during this period, I immediately made two reservations for this week – lunch for one, and dinner for two. It’s rare for me to eat twice at a restaurant within such a short space of time, but I thought it might give me a better overview of kaiseki kappo, which ‘originated in the high-class restaurants for wealthy merchants living in nineteenth century Osaka’ and is a more informal, less expensive version of the classically prepared kaiseki ryori…

Khoai Cafe bo luc lac

I had high expectations of Vietnamese eaterie Khoai Café, so when I finally went, it was a bit of a let-down to be honest. The expedition started off badly too. We went to the Crouch End branch and even though we used to live near there, we wandered up and down trying to find 6 Topsfield Parade. I’m ashamed to say that I was snappy with the waiter when I phoned to ask for directions, and was all the more embarrassed when he knew it was me the moment I walked in the door. And he even gave me a menu to take home, to save me having to write everything down in my notebook…

Before I go on any trip, I like to plan where and what to eat during my travels. I can do ‘spontaneous’ now and then, but I generally prefer to know where I’m going to be eating! As the Olympics start in a few days, I thought I’d write up my notes on the Beijing restaurants and eateries that I hope to visit in October as part of a two week trip to Hong Kong, Macau and Beijing. Although it’s only the first draft of the list, it might be useful to visitors to Beijing during and after the Olympics. I’ve consulted friends and family out there, and read many online reviews…

Mandalay sign

Burmese restaurant Mandalay has been at the top of my restaurant wishlist for a while now. It’s always sounded intriguing to me. Not only are the owners Burmese-Norwegian, they also run a little hotel nearby. And I’ve never had Burmese food before. As Time Out included it in its Top 50 London Restaurants list earlier this year, I thought I’d go and investigate with a friend.

Hakkasan vegetarian chicken

What do Chinese restaurants offer the discerning vegetarian? I’ve been giving this a lot of thought lately, because we’re going on a two week trip to Hong Kong, Macau and Beijing this October, and I’m going to have to do some serious research to find suitable eateries for vegetarian husband. I’ve been thinking about all the Chinese restaurants we’ve visited in London, and what dishes he particularly enjoys, so that I can find similar (or far better!) ones in China. Although I lived in Beijing for two years and have visited Hong Kong many times in the past, it’s been over a decade since my last trip, and I never had to worry about feeding a vegetarian!
