Ahoy dieters! Before we dive in today, can we just take a moment to appreciate tapas? Like lets get serious, whats not to love about delicate Spanish dishes perfect for sharing (not to mention making it socially acceptable to order an obscene amount of food)…. Win. That being said, I guess it goes without saying that I am a big fan of tapas, like BIG fan. Having found myself constantly on the prowl for new tapas joints to scope out, I would be lying if I said that the sound of pork & foie gras sliders didn’t instantly spark my interest (not to mention the master mind behind it being Michelin Starred chef Jason Atherton… Bonus). With 22 Ships at the top of my list of must visit tapas restaurants, lets just say by the time I finally got around to visiting it, I was more than ready to TAP into these tapas 😉 . Continue reading

Okay I think it is safe to say, I am obsessed with Oddies. We’re talking artisan gelato, soft serve and egg waffles, what more does a girl need in this world? … but seriously. I know this isn’t the first I’ve talked about Oddies and I can guarantee it won’t be the last, but I figured it was about time I gave you the proper SCOOP on this kick ass ice cream joint.
Located on Gough street in Sheung Wan (alternate location in Wan Chai) this shop takes ice cream to the next level. No matter how simple or out of the box you want your ice cream, Oddies has got you covered. Think egg waffle parfaits (layered with both feature and soft serve gelato) to aesthetically appealing drama cones (like VERY long cones pre filled with a variety of gelato and toppings then dipped in a GORGEOUS coating). But never fret, should you desire a simple ice cream cone, Oddies serves up new flavours on the regular so there is ALWAYS something new to tickle your tastebuds. Continue reading
