Two days of live footy in six days has to be a new record. I’m well on my way to becoming a Kitchee groupie. #hkfa
What comes to mind when you hear Hong Kong-Style Western Food? In the second half of the 20th century, Hong Kong started to come into its own and the Western influences became prevalent. Coinciding with a greater affluence, locals took to Western experiences including its cuisine as diets heavy on meat grew with more lucrative paychecks. There’s a small but dying breed of these establishments that essentially look like a time capsule. The staff are super OG looking and the decor looks virtually unchanged. The food is arguably fusion food before it was even a thing. Virtually every meal starts with your choice of “cream” soup or borscht, followed-up by your (often) soy-sauce marinated protein and steamed rice. You eventually round off your meal with either mango pudding or Jello and order your accompanying included drink. My go-to at the local spot Tiffany’s is the beef rib. It doesn’t look pretty, but you’ll understand there’s no reason to order anything else the second you start carving.

Before sneakers and fashion, it was football for me. The two worlds have often played off one another in terms of terrace culture, but never to the level we see now. Before this World Cup, how many footy-inspired releases did you see brands doing? It’s changed significantly over the years and while my world in the past kept fashion and football separate because they didn’t exactly fit, this strong bond had become increasingly prevalent… then #PUMA & #BAPE dropped these evoSpeeds and the circle was truly complete.
