The second branch of Toyosu Suisan in HK

Toyosu Suisan has been a success since they opened with fresh ingredients imported from Japan.
Now there is a second branch in Yau Ma Tei conveniently located near the MTR exit.
I attended the opening in mid Jan where they kicked off with a drum performance and preparation of a whole Maguro which was served that day.

After watching the performance, I went upstairs and had the Flying Maguro bowl with soup.

It was just simply delicious because all the ingredients were fresh with diced cucumbers, fresh yam, abalone, maguro, prawn, salmon roe and egg.
The salmon roe was just amazing and bursts in your mouth with saltiness.

I was surprised they also throw in the abalone liver and the size is quite big in comparison to the abalone.
Last but not least was the soup which was rich in flavour.
You are supposed to drink the soup first but I prefer to eat first as the soup fills my stomach.

[SLEEEP] Sustainable sleeping!!!

I have always wanted to stay in a capsule hotel but haven't quite made it to Japan yet.
Recently a friend posted about sleeep, a capsule hotel in Hong Kong so I was delighted.

SLEEEP is a capsule hotel blending design & technology in promoting a sustainable culture.
One quality sleep at a time.

For me, I like the idea of privacy and being in my own little world just like when I was a kid playing in playhouses/dens/treehouses.
It is a place where I can get inspirations and think deeply.
I loved the capsules, they were much bigger than I anticipated with charging ports and a mini ledge for you to put your phone, glasses etc and most importantly wifi.

It was definitely comfy having a nap there with a choice of hard or soft mattresses.

The key role of sleeep is to provide quality sleep or a place for people to recharge themselves.
It is popular with people in Central/Sheungwan who have had a tiring day and finishing late so they decide to stay there as opposed to going home.
There are eight capsules with corresponding storage that flashes at your arrival, two toilets, sinks and a shower.
Each capsule is for one person only and if someone is naughty as they say the lights will flash red as shown in this video.

Facts about the amenities at sleeep:
Check-in from your device, arrive and skip all the hassle.
Smart lighting that is responsive to the circadian cycle.
Store your luggage and belongings in their full-height lockers

Locally sourced organic soap in the shower room.
Hot showers heated by the captured heat from the cooling system.
