  1. Honestly wouldn't have a scooby doo where to get comfort food in HK, cos all of it's yumtastic.
    I will say that homemase mac n cheese is best with bacon bits: Serves 2 and ready in 45 tick toks!
    * 1 handful breadcrumbs , fresh and chunky
    * olive oil
    * 1 tbsp butter
    * 1 garlic clove , finely chopped
    * 1 tsp mustard powder
    * 1 tbsp flour
    * 250ml milk - go for cream if you don't mind the calories
    * 100g Mature chedder , grated
    * 175g rigatoni or other short pasta
    * 4 slices streaky bacon , grilled until crisp

    1. Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Put the breadcrumbs on a baking sheet, drizzle with oil, season, and bake for 5 minutes.
    2. Melt the butter in a pan. Add the garlic and mustard and cook for 1 minute. Add the flour and whisk on a low heat for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in the milk, then bring to a boil, whisking. Reduce heat and simmer until thick (about 4 minutes). Stir in the cheese until melted.
    3. Boil the pasta until al dente, drain and mix with the cheese sauce and bacon. Spoon into 2 large ramekins. Top each with breadcrumbs and bake for 20 minutes until golden.

    Et voila! Will bear those twitter tips in mind for my visit next time.
