Week 9 – Grassroots Pantry – Vegetarian

I would love to introduce to you this healthy and fine dining restaurant at Hollywood Road in Hong Kong. It has a special name, which is “Grassroots Pantry”.

I found this restaurant through the internet with great reviews. Reviews claim that it is among the best vegetarian restaurants here in Hong Kong.

Therefore, I visited it with my husband a few days ago. When we got in the restaurant, a friendly female staff attended us and led us to the table. The interior design and the atmosphere of the restaurant are spectacular. So refreshing and green. I love it. We ordered a pumpkin soup as a starter and picked three dishes among the Main Course Menu. They use varieties of ingredients and the food is presented in texture. In a dish, I tasted sweet, sour, hot and spicy. They are well mixed together and not messed up one with another. Quite interesting. On the other hand, the flavors are quite strong. If you are a someone who likes strong and heavy flavors, this is a really nice place you should visit.

Tips: Reserve table in advance is better as there are only around 30 to 35 available seats.

Price: Expensive

Address: 108 Hollywood Road | Centrestage, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong – Tel: +85228733353

Week 3 – What We Need In Winter

People say, in Winter we need warm foods and warm drinks, but I say, in Winter we need ice-creams and colors.

In Winter, when the sun doesn’t shine too often and the blue sky is always covered by clouds, everything on the street just looks less beautiful and lifeless. Consequently, some people who are more easily affected by weather will prone to have low mood. We won’t notice it at all, and we probably won’t even notice the slightly changing in mood day after day affected by the lack of sunlight.

Ice-cream, therefore, can make wonders in this situation. Eating ice-cream really does make us happy.  It stimulates the production of happiness hormone (known as serotonin) in the brain, making us to feel happy and pleasure. If it sounds crazy to have ice-cream in such cold weather, there is still other way to lift the mood in the Winter. It is color. Looking at colorful things will make us happy as well. However, I understand that we have different perception of colors, not only by gender, but also by culture and personality itself. Some may view black as a color of style, elegance and power, others view it as a symbol of deceit, negativity and things hidden. Some may view white as a color of purity, innocence and faith, but others view it differently. It is fun to have these differences, but in general, bright and colorful colors really do make us happy.

I think I’m this type of person, the kind of person who is easily emotionally affected by the weather and by the lack of sunlight. I really don’t even notice it until I have the experience of a totally lift up after a bite of an ice-cream. 😀
