Oh Mochachocolata Rita. What can I say? I was intrigued with the Mocha and the Chocolata, but you had me at Yummility. A telecommunications busy body by day, Rita describes herself as “unbelievably cocky, unreasonably annoying, unbearably boring” while she runs a straight-up no-nonsense Blogger food blog that has posts going all the way back to 2005! Clearly another prototypical Hong Kong resident, she has a passion for food, shopping, and clothing.
Like some of the other Hong Kong food bloggers I’ve featured, in addition to the 127 posts about Hong Kong she also has reviews from all over Southeast Asia as well as London and even one from Brazil. Reviews have great pictures, great stories, and the address of the place being reviewed.
In addition to her blog, you can also find Rita on Twitter @mochachocolata. Links lead to Openrice, Rita’s blog, or the reviewee’s website.
