Al Dente, Wan Chai



Been to this place for many times and still my favourite restaurant to enjoy some really nice steak and pasta. Located beside Wan Chai Ferry Pier with the Victoria Harbour view on Kowloon side, it has a very peaceful ambiance with pleasant view for a romantic dinner. What I even like more about this place is its reasonable price with excellent food quality. :P



Complimentary bread was served beforehand and we had 2 baskets of it, just being too hungry, haha... But It wasn't that great indeed because the bread was either dried out or too moist.


We ordered Insalata Spinaci salad (HK$89) as starter, which was fresh baby spinach and arugula accompanied with grilled goats cheese, roasted tomato, red and yellow peppers, garlic comfit and toasted walnut vinaigrette. I quite like the spinach as it was very fresh and even eating alone by itself was delicious. However, it would be even better if I could have more goats cheese~


Here was the first main course to arrive, Grilled seabass fillet (HK$188). Chilean seabass grilled to perfection, served with witted spinach, French beans and mash with capers buree Blanc, was a truly a surprising dish. I didn't expect the fillet to be that huge and thick at the first glance because normally with such a price, we'll only get a thin and skinny one. What was even more surprising was the texture of the seabass, it was grilled perfectly as stated and it really did. The moment when I ate it, I can feel the juice squeezing out to my mouth. A triple thumb-up dish!!!


Rib Eye Steak (HK$178) was char-grilled rib eye fillet accompanied with gratin king prawn and finished with veggies, mash and shiraz jus, another main course to share. I had it medium-done, which was perfect in texture and extremely juicy. As it's char-grilled, it carried really mild burned smell, not too bad at all though. The king prawn was however slightly too dry and bland. Also, we had a choice of mushroom or pepper sauce for the steak, and we chose the mushroom sauce, which didn't really carry much mushroom flavour. After all, I was pretty satisfied with the dish.


Another highlight of the night was the desert, Banana Caramel Cake (HK$55). It's comprised of layered biscuit as the base, banana caramel sauce, fresh cut banana, cream and finally topped with cocoa. The portion was just nice for sharing and it wasn't too sweet. The vanilla ice-cream was yummy and silky smooth, not sure which brand of ice-cream they're using? Overall it's really a perfect round-up to our dinner despite being a little bit guilty after eating that pile of cream... :s
