Our book “Hong Kong Food & Culture: From Dim Sum to Dried Abalone” was given a lot of local support in various print and online publications back in December. Thanks for the love, HK! Here are a few more reviews:
Our book “Hong Kong Food & Culture: From Dim Sum to Dried Abalone” was reviewed in SCMP’s Post Magazine this weekend.
Here is an excerpt, written by food critic Susan Jung:
Anyone who remembers HK Magazine,which ceased publication in October 2016, will recognise Adele Wong’s byline. The former dining columnist writes that this book is a way of reconnecting with her roots, having moved to Canada when she was young, then returning to Hong Kong a decade or so ago.
“These pages in front of you are my attempt at rediscovering a heritage that I hadn’t really lost, but at the same time never had a chance to fully grasp while growing up abroad. And what better way to learn about Hong Kong than through its rich culinary offerings?” she says.
“The story of Hong Kong can be found in humble cha chaan teng restaurants, old-school dim sum houses, colourful wet markets, classic herbal tea shops. It’s told by local butchers, street food hawkers, third-generation noodle-makers continuing their grandparents’ legacy.”

This just in! Our lifestyle website, The Loop HK, has launched a handy marketing tool for brands and companies looking to promote an event or product on its platform. It’s a simple Submit an Event page:

If an event/promotion has been approved, a $250HKD listing fee will be charged. And that’s it!
After more than a year of interviews, photoshoots, and cooking in our test kitchen, Man Mo Media is finally nearing the end of its first coffee table book project: a 350-page hardcover about Hong Kong’s amazing food scene.
Broken into 14 chapters, each chapter talks about a different aspect of Hong Kong’s culinary culture. From Hongkongers’ favorite ingredients to the different types of restaurants in our city to the influence of Traditional Chinese Medicine on all the things we eat, the book offers a fascinating glimpse into Cantonese society.
The book will be available to purchase in September, 2016. Stay tuned for more details!
