LAB MADE, Hong Kong’s first liquid nitrogen ice cream parlour, opened last month and the queues are out the door. By blending fresh ingredients and freezing it with liquid nitrogen at -196°C, this is the smoothest ice cream in the city. With four flavours that change every two weeks and no preservatives, the only downside is that it melts fast, so this is an eat on the spot experience. Sassy’s flavour? Purple rice.
Address: G/F 6 Brown Street, Tai Hang. Hong Kong Tel: (852) 2670 0071.


Hong Kong dining is having a very Mexican moment with numerous cantina style eateries dotted around the city. But let’s be clear the majority are just average, so when Jaime and Bendict Ku, the glamourous couple behind Hong Kong hot spots Volar and Lily & Bloom, decided to open SOCIALITO on Wyndham Street, we knew the Mexican invasion would finally be complete. Stop by for authentic tacos, ceviche, tostadas, pasteles and artisanal flavoured frozen margaritas.

VANISHED YEARS, Rupert Everett’s follow up to his hilariously gossipy memoir Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins is published on September 27th. Pre-order from Bookazine and expect more tart comments on his fabulous friends including Piers Morgan and Anita Pallenberg.






One of the most annoying things about toting a clutch bag for anything other than evening, is that it’s impossible to get all your fashion essentials inside. But now with the fabulous foldaway LANA SUNGLASSES from Jimmy Choo, there is no excuse for squinting into the sun.
