Wine for breakfast.
I was being poked at all sides with dripping umbrellas, busy keeping my head down, dodging the furious red mini buses while avoiding the inky puddles all at the same time. A typical rainy day in Hong Kong, when I turned and smelt the most luxurious aroma coming from Kam Wah Cafe. The shop is a bustling cha chaan teng in Prince Edwards, barricaded with glass cases full of steaming hot pastry and tarts. Hordes of people were already seated, and I had to treat myself to a buttered Pineapple Bun ‘to-go’ for breakfast.

Guide to drinking Riesling from Mosel.
Riesling is the generally considered the third highest quality wine varietal (after Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc), however it has a much smaller fan base due to its unique style and semi-sweet characteristics. Although fewer fans in number, Riesling has loyal fans and is a favorite among many wine critics including Jancis Robinson.
Originating from the Rhine region in Germany, this country champions Riesling as its signature varietal, especially the Rieslings from the highly regarded wine region of Mosel.
