What good food should be like

So this post will be about Hong Kong Central and a little shout out for two good food/drink finds in Hong Kong Central.

Saturday afternoon Sweet Chai Latte at FUEL, Landmark Mall Basement was a real treat, perfectly made in the right proportions. Only criticism was the cup was not big enough. The mandarin poppy seed cake was ok, a bit dry but quickly overshadowed by the Latte.

Saturday evening dinner was a pleasant surprise at California Vintage, an unique dining idea where you can order a range of Tapas style dishes and pair them with a wide selection of wines.  The experience is interactive, wine sample selections are done using a 'charge card' system from stainless steel fine polished wine dispensers.  And the food is fresh, generous and good. I was so inspired by the Watermelon Cucumber soup that I have new motivation to try more WATERMELON in food combinations.

Saturday was a special day spent with my love, but a topic for another day. Pictures and impressions from Central on a Saturday are below.  In general I can say I am starting to feel a less lost, and a lot more happy and comfortable here, really enjoying the city in many ways.

These stairs in Duddell street are special since they host the last remaining gas lamps in Hong Kong.
