TOP Winter Foods

My column for ZCOOP is out!! Check it out everyone!! <3


Oh the weather is cold outside!!! BRRRRRRRR… It’s finally been getting chilly. This is the perfect season for some delicious hot, hot food to warm up the body, mind and soul. I used to have a list of top winter comfort foods. Who can say no to a delicious cup of hot chocolate by the fire place, or a hot piping bowl of  Chinese herbal soup at dinner and lets not forget about the delicious plate of penne pasta with creamy carbonara sauce, lots of bacon and cheese drizzled all atop. These are perfect examples of winter foods. Here are my selections of the best winter comfort foods.

Angelini is known for their delicious Italian fine dining. The food are all exquisite, but the best winter comfort food is definitely their signature lobster linguini. The linguini pasta is perfectly al dente and flavorful. The lobster is plump, rich and juicy.

Yakiniku Great is another perfect option during the cold winter months. The grilled meats are juicy, well marbled and they carry the best beef, pork and chicken selection. Hong Kong has countless of yakiniku, niku, and tori joints. But Yakiniku Great definitely keeps everyone extremely warm during the winter months with a DIY grill!

Kwun Kee is infamous for their crispy clay pot rice selection. The space is always packed- at pretty much any hour of every day but once you finally secure seats- you will be pleasantly surprised how good everything and anything is. I love the crispy burnt edges of the claypot rice. Perfection.
