- Wing Restaurant by Vicky ChengHong Kong has no shortage of top restaurants. However, most fall into one of two categories: high-end traditional Asian cuisine (e.g., Japanese, Cantonese, other types of Chinese), or high-end European (French, Italian, etc.). There are fewer that are attempting what Chef Vicky Cheng sought out to do, which is the...
- A Weekend in Bergamo Italy - Trip ReportBergamo is a beautiful, old city (from 49 BC!) in northern Italy with two different levels, the Alta (upper) & the Bassa (lower) city. We got to spend a weekend here last fall as part of a larger trip that also included Boston (US), Paris (France), Bolzano (Italy), and Warsaw...
- Bryan's Birthday at 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo BombanaI recently asked Bryan what his top five favorite restaurants in Hong Kong were. The first two rolled off his tongue in an instant. "Sushi Shikon" (I'm not surprised, considering the best dish Bryan's ever had) and ½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana. That's why I knew he wouldn't mind when...
- Godenya Hong KongHong Kongers love traveling to Japan. During the pandemic when the border between Japan and Hong Kong was all but effectively closed, demand for Japanese restaurants, especially high-end ones, shot up in Hong Kong. All of a sudden, it was impossible to book any nice Japanese restaurants. In fact, during...

- Fiata Pizza Hong KongYou might be surprised to hear that the best pizza I'd ever had in the world was actually in Hong Kong. That was more than three years ago (pre-Covid), when Kytaly (from Switzerland) opened in Hong Kong for a few years before an internal dispute caused the original chef to...

I travel A LOT, and I always do extensive research about food before going to a new location. Therefore, if you’re planning on visiting a new place, definitely check out the places I’ve visited and written about in these locations when you’re planning your trip.
I grew up in Ohio (where I ate mostly my mom's cooking - see recipes above!), but spent 20+ years living in Cambridge, a college city right next to Boston. I've spent a lot of time trying food all over the US. There are certain places I visit almost annually, and thus know especially well, such as New York, Las Vegas, and both Northern and Southern California.

I have lived in Hong Kong for the past 5 years and thus have traveled quite a bit around the region (heh, until the pandemic came). Hong Kong and Japan are both magnificent food cities. One could spend a lifetime just exploring those two places alone. Taiwan is the place of my roots, and I have nostalgic memories visiting it with my family. Finally, these past several years I’ve been able to taste my way through numerous cities in Mainland China, as well as explored many locations throughout Southeast Asia.
I love Europe's rich history, stunning architecture, breathtaking landscapes, and incredible food. There's a sense of familiarity, perhaps because I spent so much time in Boston, a most "European-like" city in the US. Through the years I've had unique opportunities to explore many parts of this continent, both for work and pleasure. I never tire of it.
