As I mentioned the selection of food is limited; however, what they do, they do well. There are always three of four main dishes on the lunch set followed by a slightly more extensive selection of salads to choose from. As a starter for today’s lunch I began with the beetroot salad. Simple, fresh, and delicious, it was nicely tossed together with a light vinaigrette. Although the portion was not as generous as it could have been for 42HKD a portion, it was filling and enjoyable. Well presented by a smiling waiter who, regardless of what you are eating, always enthusiastically offers the pepper grinder.
Following my delicious salad starter I had a very thinly crusted four cheese pizza. Perfect. Although I know that they don’t make the crusts on sight they’re still of a reasonable quality. Crisp and generously topped with good quality cheeses, it was delectable. I couldn’t really decipher all of the cheeses that they had used. Certainty parmesan, a mozzarella, and an aged hard sheep cheese of some variety were undoubtedly present.
J, who remembered to take pictures, had the duck breast salad to start with:
…which she seemed to like. Her main was the Pan-fried Sea Bream in Balsamico:
This was alright, but apparently the last similar dish she had ordered here (pan-fried fish with tomato-based sauce and mashed potatoes) was so much better than this balsamico one.
As for desserts, we had the tiramisu and banana walnut muffin. The tiramisu was good (better than most in HK), on the creamy side, and needed a bit more sugar (according to J, who has an obscenely sweet tooth). The muffin was good, but maybe not so good they’re worth the calories… ha!
