    Fortune Cookie – American Chinese Food In Shanghai! |

    I cannot vouch for “authenticity”, the food was tasty and well prepared (and of course, you won’t find a bone of any kind in any of the dishes!). The bigger surprise for me was the service. For a place that’s been open barely a month, the service was excellent. All the servers seemed ...

    Firstly, has everyone booked seats for Restaurant Week yet? I’m booked in for Sir Elly’s and Pelham’s. That’s quite enough for me. This isn’t a review as I have yet to try, but I am excited about the opening of Mr Harry , describing itself as serving British cuisine. A quick look at t...

  • The Final Landlord Showdown

    blog.friday-nite.com 20 Aug '13, 5am

    So I moved out on Sunday and if packing everything up wasn’t stressful enough, I had one final unpleasant encounter with the worst landlords I’ve ever come across. I had dreaded this moment from the second I moved in, 4 years ago. It’s always a tense time when you are wondering how mu...

    Lionel Messi Uses WeChat (Weixin) Posted on July 16, 2013 by WoAi I don’t think there are many people left in China that aren’t using Weixin (WeChat). It’s like Skype, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp all rolled in to one great app. And it’s spreading slowly to markets outsid...

    It’s almost a weekend ritual for me to stop by K11 and grab a Tutti Melon frozen yogurt after brunch. When K11 first opened a few months ago, the place was empty and I felt sorry for the retail outlets and their staff, with nothing to do but twiddle their thumbs. That’s all changed of...
