This is the first in a series of posts where I will feature one of my favorite Hong Kong food bloggers. I’ve asked each of them the same five questions and will share their responses with you all.
According to her About Me page, Gastronomous Anonymous was born in Indonesia, but has lived in Syndey since she was 8. Recently she lived in Hong Kong for 10 months and has managed to write 124(!!!) posts about Hong Kong on her blog. It does make me wonder if she’s a little biased with her recommendation of the Australian Dairy Co, though. 😉
Her posts have a little personal background and are loaded with descriptions and mouth watering pictures. In addition, she is brave enough to take the occasional picture of the kitchen. Personally I’d be worried about being chased out with a cleaver trying to pull that off in Hong Kong. She finishes posts with addresses and her 1-10 rating.
