We had just finished our dim sum lunch at Luk Yu (after wifey had her event), and was hunting around for coffee and relaxation. As usual, our trusty FourSquare app listed quite a number of cafes around this area. Wanting to try something new, we walked away from the usual Duxton area instead and chanced upon Yellow Cup Coffee.
This is a unique cafe with 4 branches around the island. The uniqueness lies in that all their cups were, of course, yellow! The deco at this Central Sqaure branch is very simple, with a few large tables inside and a couple of alfresco tables. Coffee counter is a long bench with coffee machine and cake fridge and simple kitchen equipment sufficient to make breakfast items, which they also offers, besides freshly brewed coffee and artisan breads and pastry.
All on its own
Since we were in the vicinity idling and nua-ing in a new-found cafe, we again relied on our trusty 4SQ to help us locate any interesting places for dinner. And so 4SQ suggested, and we decided to come to this famous 亞華肉骨茶餐室 (Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh Eating House) around the corner.
The restaurant occupies the entire ground floor of the Isetan Office Building, and tables extend out to the corridor. It appeared that business was quite good because it was quite full-house when we arrived. And we saw a group of tourist-like customers guided in by their tour guide too.
The highlight of the buffet
Today we celebrate 6 years of being together! This called for a celebration at Irodori 😉
Actually, we bought this deal online, but it ended up about the same price as paying via certain credit cards which offer a 15% discount.
Our second time here, and the salmon, swordfish and yellow tail sashimi remained our top favourites!
