“ashley” Where:

Limewood

What:

Yay! Summer is for tacos!! My favorite Mexican joint in Repulse bay ! I can spend all day here sipping my watermelon juice :)


“ashley” Where:

Graham Street Market

What:

Well… not every summer day is bright and shiny. In times of rain, I make sure I visit one of the oldest Wet Markets (fresh food market) in Hong Kong to get my fruit and veg for the weekend.


“ashley” Where:

Yu Hing ( Dai Pai Dong)

What:

When I need a very local breakfast treat, I always go for Yue Hing. Their signature sandwiches mix peanut butter, vegetable and your meat of choice – it’s unforgettably delicious. What’s more, they do egg white omelets for people like me who are allergic to egg yolk.


“ashley” Where:

Little Cove Espresso

What:

A tiny but cozy cafe in my hood that fits 100% with my eating habits, serving gluten-free and dairy-fee breakfast and deserts. Coffee is great as well. And yes, I can have coconut milk as substitute!


“ashley” Where:

Repulse Bay Beach

What:

Let’s admit it – no one is going skip the beach in the summer.


“ashley” Where:

Tai Cheung Egg Tart

What:

The famous egg tart – so loved by the last British governor of Hong Kong, Chris Patten. It attracts lines of eaters every day.
