Who has the best outfits, a cheeky sense of humour, 33 thousand followers and an insatiable appetite? Rose Chiu, of course! This stunning young food blogger, better known as @fatasslovesfood, travels Hong Kong (and the world) looking for the best bites – and her feed will give you serious food #fomo.
When she’s not looking #fire and chowing down at the city’s top restaurants, she spends her days working in PR and managing social media pages. We caught up with her to find out all her favourite things in Lan Kwai Fong, for the second round of #MYLKF.
How long have you been going to LKF?
Since I was 18 … what else!
Is there a great spot for photos we should know about?
Go to the rooftop bars for the view, like CÉ LA VI, ON Dining and FoFo by el Willy.
Any tips for taking great photos in low-light, like at restaurants?
Bring your own light!
What’s your ‘dream night out’ in Lan Kwai Fong?
Dinner at Carbone, drinks at Wahtiki, Dragon-i for a bit and then chicken soup at Employees Only. And, if I’m still alive, I could swing by Volar.
Do you prefer crazy cocktails, or to keep things simple?
I usually go for wine, but I also like cocktails that are not sugary sweet.
We know you're all about food, so what are your top restaurants in Lan Kwai Fong?
Mercato, Carbone, Buenos Aires Polo Club, Beef & Liberty, Employees Only and 9/F Momos!
If you could only eat one meal in LKF for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I hate questions like this, but I guess I’d go for Carbone.
Are you more into clubbing or chill drinks with friends?
Chill drinks with friends—although most of the time I’ll end up getting drunk and going clubbing anyway!
Which is your favourite club for a big night out?
Where do you go for casual drinks?
