The Green Waffle Diner

There aren't many places in Hong Kong I know where they actually do waffle in an American style. So I decided to look for one and it was pretty good!

Its called the Green Waffle Diner (looks more orangie-yellow to me though !!) In my opinion, yellow colour is a happy colour but on walls it makes me want to leave as soon as... They don't have an actual website but I found this on OpenRice.com.

It's located at the top of Graham Street, so I suggest coming down from Hollywood Road, so you might not have to walk through the wet market at the bottom of the road.

Pretty dainty inside but I love how they can open large windows to enjoy a breeze blowing in. Tables are normally rearranged on the go so be sure to book a table. On the day, cause I was a walk-in with a friend... so they might ask you to hand the table over after about an hour and a half. But the atmosphere actually reminds me of being back in London for a quick lunch and heading off to work again.

There weren't too many choices from the set (lunch) menu, but at you do get a waffle as a dessert with every set meal.

Pasta Cabonara

Duck & Ham with Poached Eggs

Half Eaten Waffle

Overall, I did enjoy it but the way they list the items on the bill (check) was really weird for me... since it was a set lunch meal, surely the ordered items should be all inclusive...? I just find it akward to see a few other customers asking about the same question that's all. They need to even out their tables too... it's just a personal preference since it's not ideal to eat with a wonky table. Personally, I felt the main course plates are just a little too big for a small table for two, we could just barely fit another two cuppa teas too!

I had the pasta and thought it was pretty good except I still prefer the traditional style with an egg yolk without the cream.

But for a small cafe like this, it's really nice for a lunch and catch-up

Last Minute Valentine ?

This "might" get a lil pink and red though, what other colour would you describe the word -Love. to be?
 
If you're a singleton like me at the moment, make something for yourself to enjoy with your friends or family! Just because you don't have someone to share it with, doesn't mean you have to be miserable or sad. Be spontaneous and create something sweet and share your love with those around you.

But if you do have someone to share it with, there are many different ways to show your love & it just doesn't have to be on this one day (Valentine's Day) but also many more. I always say this to my friends: Everyday is a Valentine's with your loved one.

BOYS! If you have a crush, girlfriend, wife or any female friend has a sweet tooth, don't just get them chocolate, teddy bears, one single rose, promises you don't tend to keep and/or a bunch of flowers. Well, of course it's nice! BUT! that can be done whenever... Personally, I think food is the best way to show a different side of love, GIRLS! Some say: To a man's heart is through their stomach. I'm not sure if that's all true, but it's definitely one of them.
 
Here are just a few ideas that might help you out:
 
 
 
Macarons are a great alternative than chocolate
 

Ispahan by Laduree
Hearted Pepperoni
 Pancakes / Watermelon & Orange Slices

Valentine Punch

Marshmallows covered with White Chocolate (Sprinkles & Shredded Coconut)

 
 
 
So how would you be spending your Valentine? A romantic getaway ? A meal that you've prepared the day before? An adventure outing? Or a proposal?
 
To me, the most important is whom I'm spending it with, so I hope you all out there have a lovey dovey one
 

With Love,
