  2. Wherever you are in Hong Kong, it is quicker from your location to travel to Nara Thai Cuisine than to fly to Bangkok. [Not to be confused with this other one in TST] Nara Thai Cuisine is a famous restaurant from Thailand that has received the best restaurant award every year since 2007! How could I not try it when I was at Mimila earlier that day. Began with the appetizers: Prawn carpaccio, Salmon carpaccio, Thai Fish cakes, Green mango salad with Thai sausage and North Eastern pork balls with lettuce. [Prawn carpaccio] [Salmon carpaccio] [Thai Fishcakes] I liked the way the pork salami was diced and made crispy as everything went together nicely in the [Green mango salad with Thai sausage]. To my surprise, the [North Eastern pork balls with lettuce] stole the show among the appetizers because they were crunchy on the outside while it was moist in the middle packed with fiery kick, hence the lettuce mellows the fierness. There is always soup in the Thai Cuisine such as coconut chicken, tom yum kung etc. Tried the tom yum kung which was refreshing with a prominent herb flavour while the lemongrass was not too strong. The Soft Shell Crab Yellow Curry with Butterfly Pea Rice, Jasmine and Roti Prata is great for sharing, the best thing is the curry as it was thick yet light, great with the rice or roti. The Grilled Pork Neck is also worth ordering as it was lean and meaty. The Fried Butterfly Pea rice with Crispy Fish and Thai Herbs was really photogenic, while the egg turned out to be the star of the show as it was salted egg. Nara is also famous for noodles especially the [Ayuthaya boat noodles with Beef] which come in a strong beefy broth infused with herbs. They also had the [Rainbow soup rice noodles with fish fillet], another noodle that has become popular in HK. For dessert, the [Nara Coconut ice cream with assorted Thai sweet condiments] was a brilliant experience as you are presented with all these sweet toppings to add on the coconut icecream. Finished off with this photogenic butterfly pea tea drink! Overall, I really like the food and hope there will be another branch coming to the city.

  4. 不知是否地理上接近比利時,荷蘭亦有相當多賣薯條的舖頭,在花多眼亂中找到這間名店,上面寫著ANNO 1887,是1887成立的意思嗎? 其實我也沒有特別要找甚麼名店,只是看到這條長長的人龍,還有大家都拿著這裡的薯條吃,看旁邊的鬼佬也在探頭看過究竟,就知道一定要排隊囉。後來查一下,是1957年成立的,賣薯條賣六十年也夠厲害,Tripadviser有4.5分之高,厲害啊﹗ 要知道一間店是否多遊客光顧,餐牌一定是指標,你有見過吃薯條都吃到六種語言嗎?這家店連醬汁都區分了哪些是比利時風味,醬汁接近三十款。當然我人在荷蘭,不選荷蘭醬就真係荷蘭銀行支票。 這個叫oorlog醬的物體,係蛋黃醬、沙嗲醬同洋蔥碎的組合,蛋黃醬同沙嗲醬簡直是魚與熊掌why not both,不過兩隻醬都相當濃味,很難協調吧?Oorlog在荷蘭語入面解作戰爭,Oorlog醬的出現據說是在第一次世界大戰中同盟軍中誕生,當時盟軍士兵在軍中嘗試不同醬汁組合,結果就創造出這個醬--不過一鹹一甜的兩種醬料確實像在打架呢。 如圖所見,沙嗲醬跟蛋黃醬各佔一邊,確實像兩軍對壘,所以洋蔥應該想像成砲火嗎?薯條就無需多言,現炸的粗身薯條根本無得輸,蛋黃醬同洋蔥其實就同吃沙律菜差不多無特別,不過蛋黃醬從來都很無敵,比茄汁更強。精彩之處當然是沙嗲醬,稠身、少辣、重花生香,這味道完全是印度串燒沙嗲醬風味,而且不是隨便做就做得好食。這裡的沙嗲醬,比香港的印尼串燒店出色多了。港式的沙茶醬沙嗲,又是另一回事了。 何解荷蘭會食到如此出色的沙嗲醬?忽然想起荷蘭曾統治過印尼,一切謎底已經解開。 Source

  9. I have always been a huge fan of laksa – it’s probably my favorite soup noodle dish. Although I’ve had the popular creamy-based laksa many times, I had never tried asam laksa as it’s really only popular in Malaysia, specifically Penang. At our hotel in Georgetown, I asked one of the staff where to find the best asam laksa and she immediately told us to go to Moh Teng Pheow Nyonya Koay (莫定標娘惹粿廠). Just like that, we were off on what turned out to be a fairly big and long mission to source out the city’s best asam laksa. The experience The cutest entranceDining areaFinding Moh Teng Pheow was no easy task. It wasn’t until we gave up all hope and popped into a nearby hotel to ask whether the restaurant was close by that we finally sorted our directions out. Finally, after about 30 minutes of walking in the brutal heat, we came upon Moh Teng Pheow down a little alleyway off Lebuh Chulia. I’m not exactly sure if we went in through the main entrance way, but we walked through the kitchen first and then went into the dining area. The restaurant was relatively empty, so we had our pick of tables (unfortunately no air conditioning, so a table by a fan would have to do), and the staff were friendly and could speak English well enough for us to get by. The food MenuAsam laksaIn laksa heavenWe wanted to try a range of items on the menu, but we knew we had to order the asam laksa so we each got one (for only RM6 – HK$12!). Honestly, this laksa was phenomenal – just look at the huge smile on my face! Asam laksa is very different from curry laksa in that it’s slightly tangy from the pineapple and has a fishy undertone, but don’t let that put you off.. I swear, this bowl of noodles was life changing. Moh Teng Pheow served a decent-sized bowl of laksa, though it was more on the snack side, which is perfect if you’re doing a bit of a food tour in Georgetown like we were. Had we not ordered dessert as well, I definitely would have ordered another bowl to devour. Variety of Malaysian dessertsOur dessert picksI was less familiar with which types of dessert to order, despite the English names on the menu. Thankfully, one of the staff members told us to come to the counter where we could actually see all of the dessert on display. After a few questions about what the flavors actually were, we settled on the: Kuih Bengka – Ubi, Kuih Talam, Pulut Tai Tai (Kaya Kuih), and one Abuk. I’m not typically a fan of jellied desserts, but I honestly loved all of these. Moh Teng Cheow is open Tuesday – Sunday from 10:30 am to 5:00 pm, so plan to go during the day Moh Teng Cheow Nyonya Koay Jalan Mesjid Off Lebuh Chulia, 10200 Georgetown View the full article

  12. 對不少港人來說,泰國及泰菜總有份無可取代的難言魅力。旅途中,也分享一頓泰菜盛宴;沒錯,不少人去曼谷必吃、非常知名的 Nara Thai Cuisine,已經進駐沙田新城市廣場,今天更是正式開幕日,可以接受 booking 訂檯了! Nara Thai Cuisine 位於新城市廣場一期5樓 Häagen-Dazs 對面,無論是搭港鐵或巴士來,都非常方便易達。格局與金鐘副線的 Apinara 有點相似,但再輕鬆一些,菜式定價也更平易近人;加上集團專程由曼谷飛了四位廚師來港,誠意十足,相信很難不爆場。 餐廳的主色是 Earth Tone,但中間又加插了不少紫色,的確是幾吸晴的,連招牌飲品的蝶豆花茶 ($38) 加檸汁攪拌後也是迷人粉紫的!但一開首還是先要杯 泰式凍奶茶 ($38),獨有的香味依依、甜度又剛好,超超超好飲,一問之下原來菜葉也由泰國直送,要嚴重推介給大家~ 喝完奶茶後,也經不起藍紫色的誘惑,加點了一杯 蝶豆花茶 ($38),藍色花茶本身沒甚麼味道,倒進檸檬汁後就多了清新酸味,拌上底部糖漿味道剛好;而顏色也由迷人深藍幻化成動人粉紫,打卡必點必飲! 也有食友推介 鮮椰子沙冰 ($48),但一晚喝下兩杯凍飲已是我的極限,唯有下次再嚐了~ 開始頭盤,首先是 泰式生蝦 ($118),一碟份量不少,蝦肉也相當新鮮,不過同上的青汁不算很辣,稍不夠刺激呢!青芒果扎肉沙律 ($88) 也是一樣,可以再香辣刺客一些。 這裡的 泰式魚餅 ($88) 點上甜醬味道不錯,但留意個子非常巨大,胃口小的建議開半分享! 頭盤中最愛是 生菜包東北豬肉丸 ($88),即使不點醬汁,巨大的豬肉丸本身甚為火辣刺激,加上新鮮爽脆的生菜、薄荷葉、豆角等同吃,口味很富對比感,好吃值得推介! 這晚仗著人多,於是又分享可以更辣的 泰式三文魚刺身 ($108),以及豐腴肥美的 燒豬頸肉 ($98),之後正式來列主菜環節。 作為不折不招的標準黃咖哩迷,一見到這個 黃咖哩軟殻蟹 ($188),真的又愛又恨!愛是又香又滑的黃咖哩送薄餅送飯都一流,同上軟殻蟹也同樣香脆好吃;恨是又咖哩又 印度薄餅 ($25) 又 白飯/蝶豆花飯 ($15@),這晚放肆得非常超標! 除了碗裝的碟豆花飯,餐廳也供應 泰式香草脆魚炒蝶豆花飯 ($88),加上脆魚、腰果、鹹蛋等,自然更加香口美味,空口淨食或撈咖哩都一樣好吃。 還未完!之後又分享了 冬蔭功 ($108),紅湯中的蝦隻十分新鮮好吃,但湯頭就未夠香辣,喝下去未夠刺激。 之後還超這份的一起分享了 泰式牛肉船麵 ($98)、彩虹湯魚片米粉 ($78) 及 清湯冬蔭功豬肉粉絲 ($78),當中最愛湯頭濃郁又非常足料的泰式牛肉船麵,但一定要趁快吃,否則麵條吸收湯汁澎漲後就很難分~ 清湯冬蔭功豬肉粉絲用上了幼滑好吃的粉絲,吸收清湯中的鮮味(又是不太辣)都幾好吃,也喜歡餐加上大量脆豬皮及通菜。 最後味道酸酸的又美美的彩虹湯魚片米粉也很不錯,愛吃魚皮及魚蛋的朋友尤其會喜歡。 主菜去得太盡,甜品只夠胃納分享品嚐兩款,首先是去泰國必必必吃的 芒果糯米飯伴椰奶 ($58),芒果很甜,糯米飯口感及甜度也剛剛好,是再飽也要塞進肚子的甜品~ 另一款是 椰子雪糕伴8式配料 ($58),其實椰子雪糕淨食就是最妙(頂多加上椰果),但8式配料實在繽紛悅目,人多一起玩玩拍拍也不錯~ 最後,凡惠觀滿$600就可獲開幕禮品兩份,是別緻的木筷木匙!當然數量有限,相信很快就會派完,想吃想要的就馬上訂位吧~~~ Nara Thai Cuisine 地址:沙田沙田正街18號新城市廣場一期5樓507號舖 電話:31881138 Facebook:Nara ** 想得知最新飲食情報,可追蹤 甜魔媽媽;欲得知甜魔一家消息,就追蹤 Matthew and Chloe 吧~~

  14. 最近、私の身辺で初めて香港に行く!家族で行く!若い人が行く!というのを耳にします。 私のブログは香港好きな人はもちろん、まだ香港を知らない!でも興味がある!行ってみたい!と思っていらっしゃる方にも楽しんでいただきたいと思っています。 これから香港デビューを考えていらっしゃる皆様に、香港はどんな美味しい料理があるの?何を食べたらいい?などガイドブックには出ているけどどれが美味しいのか分からない・・・という方の参考になるもの、多くの日本人の舌に合うものをご紹介したいと思います。 オススメがありすぎて絞るのが大変でしたが、最初はコレくらいでちょうど良いかな。 ベテランの皆様、お付き合いくださいませ(^^) ◆オススメその①茹で海老(白灼蝦)◆ 海老Loverのワタクシの必須アイテム!『白灼蝦(パッチンハー)』は海鮮料理店の定番料理。香港に行ったら海鮮料理はマスト! プリップリの大きな海老を茹でただけのシンプル料理ですが、素材がいいからこそ美味しさが楽しめる一品です。タレを付けていただきます。 ◆オススメその②クリスピーポーク(脆皮燒肉)◆ 広東料理の定番「燒味(シウメイ)」と言われる中華バーベキュー料理。 中でも『脆皮燒肉(チョイペイシウヨッ)』は豚肉の皮をカリカリに、身はジューシーに仕上げたもの。日本では簡単に食べられる料理ではないので、香港で味わってほしいです。 広東料理店や燒味専門店ならばどこでも食べられます。 ◆オススメその③パイナップルパン(菠蘿包)◆ 日本版メロンパンと言われる『菠蘿包(ボーローバウ)』。パンの上にクッキー生地をのせて焼いたもの。パイナップルの味はしませんので悪しからず。 上はサクサククッキー、下はしっとりパンというのが美味しい菠蘿包ですが、これに厚切りバターを挟んだ『菠蘿油(ボーローヤウ)』が超オススメ!パンの甘みとバターの塩のハーモニーがたまらんー! こちらは茶餐廳や冰室と言われるローカルカフェで食べられる他、街のパン屋さんで購入できます。 ◆オススメその④香港式フレンチトースト(西多士)◆ 高カロリーを承知で是非オススメしたいのが香港式フレンチトーストの『西多士(サイドーシー)』。 何が違うのかというと・・・パンにピーナッツバターやカヤジャムを挟んで揚げてあるのです!!! これにたっぷりのバターとシロップ!カロリー計算すると怖くなりますが、旅行中くらい気にしないで食べましょう! こちらは茶餐廳や冰室と言われるローカルカフェで食べられます。 ◆オススメその⑤ポメロとタピオカのマンゴースイーツ(楊枝甘露)◆ 香港に行ったらマンゴープリンもいいけど、日本で味わえないような美味しいマンゴースイーツを食べて欲しい!『楊枝甘露(ヨンジーガムロウ)』はメチャクチャオススメ!!! マンゴージュースとココナッツミルクの中にマンゴーとポメロの果肉、タピオカが入った香港では定番のスイーツです。私の大好物のひとつ~!! ディーン・フジオカも大好物らしいですよ! こちらはフルーツスイーツ店『許留山』などスイーツ店で味わえる他、飲茶レストランではスイーツ点心として置いてあるお店も多いです。 やばい・・・記事書いていたらお腹が鳴った。 まだまだオススメはありますが、今日はこの辺でね! 次回はもうワンランクアップのオススメ香港フードをご紹介しようかな。 香港ウンチク話Instagram  → こちらをクリック <Blogでは紹介しきれない写真も紹介しています> 香港ウンチク話Facebook  → こちらをクリック <旬な情報をシェアしています> *どちらも登録なしで閲覧可能です* View the full article
  15. 這天從Sintra回來時候已經不早,很多餐廳都已經接近關門,慶幸這間想吃的店隊伍排得不長,還能趕到尾班車進去,一個人旅行總有些好處。 來這裡為的是海鮮飯,曾經拿過獎啊。一般海鮮飯都是兩人或以上份量,這裡有一人份,正是我過來的其一理由。 柯打過後當然要等,除了客人要等得久外,其實店員阿伯同時是廚師更要收銀,所以慢是肯定的。 天時暑熱,最好是來一支冰凍的啤酒,這支Super Bock…超淡麗,配海鮮就還好,如果是純喝我會喜歡麥香濃的。 西班牙海鮮飯是連鐵板上,這裡則是連鍋子上。西班牙海鮮飯或許有機會是在其他地方煮好再放上鐵板,但這裡肯定是煮好把鍋子都拿給你,真想知道廚房到底數藏了幾多個鍋。看鍋裡的海鮮也不少,而且不是甚麼青口魷魚,是蝦蟹啊。 先分一點在盤上,因為它好好好好熱要攤涼一點才能吃。然後吃一口…啊啊啊啊熱熱熱好吃(好好講話﹗),飯粒其實跟西班牙海鮮飯有點像,都是粒粒分明而且中間不是熟透,帶點煙韌的咬口,而且蕃茄味相當濃郁,還滲透出海鮮的鮮甜。至於海鮮好不好吃?看到那橙紅色的蟹膏還用質疑嗎?我覺得這個海鮮飯比西班牙海鮮飯更吸引我呢。 其實看到有博客推薦那個Prawn portuguese style "fried",但我一個人吃兩款又怕吃不完,只好放棄了,獨行俠的唯一煩惱啊。 Source

  17. I posted on my blog a while ago about my efforts to learn Mandarin. It’s really hard... but for me, it’s not just about the personal challenge of learning a new and complex language – it’s also about trying truly understand and get under the skin of a completely different culture. This is important for me because I think that learning a language is also a great way to gain an insight into the way that people think and talk about business. So, I was really pleased to be able to head to Beijing recently for a few weeks to try and give my Mandarin a boost – and I have to say it was a very productive and interesting visit. A tech revolution There are many fascinating cultural differences that strike you when you visit Beijing – but I was struck on this particular visit by one overriding phenomenon – the extent to which the Chinese have embraced the QR code. While you do often see QR codes being used in all sorts of settings in the rest of the world, I was struck by just how ubiquitous the technology has become in China. In Beijing, I saw it being used for everything from renting bicycles on the street to ordering your food in restaurants – with most people using WeChat to scan the code for information. WeChat now has around a billion users and could be described as the WhatsApp of China – and it allows not just QR code scanning but also payment using your phone and a linked bank account. Again, along with the QR code it was a piece of tech I’d heard of – but had no idea of the extent to which it is now being used in China. Multiple uses Here’s a quick example – my wife, her parents and I went to a restaurant that had no menus and only one waiter for more than ten tables. This unusual set up worked like a dream however – because diners simply needed to scan the QR code on the table to access the menu, place the order and then pay the bill. It’s a nice example of just how far the QR code has permeated almost every aspect of consumer life in Beijing – but it’s far from the only one. On the same trip, the first thing my father-in-law did was hand to me a mobile phone that had multiple apps loaded onto it that allowed for payment by QR code. After leaving the restaurant that evening, we stepped outside, found a yellow ofo bicycle, scanned the QR code, unlocked the bike and pedalled off. We then went to the San Yuan Li Market ( 三源里菜市场) to buy some fruit and veg, and used another app to scan a QR code which was taped onto a pole next to the fruit lady’s stand – once again, payment was immediate and hassle-free. Simple tech, but with many applications I could go on: everywhere, right across the city, in everything from tea shops to the local craft brewery, we were able to use QR codes to pay quickly and easily. Of course, you need to be settled in China to use them, as without a local credit card or bank account to top-up the payment the apps are useless – but the principle still stands that China has embraced this technology in multiple ways and has made it straightforward and simple to use. So, what did I learn from the experience of using QR codes in so many different ways in Beijing? Well, firstly that often the simplest solutions are often the best – the technology behind QR codes is not new, nor is it particularly complex. The impact, for me at least, was being in Beijing and seeing the extent to which it has been implemented across almost every type of transaction you can think of. And I think that, in many ways, that is the key to the success of any piece of technology: it has to be simple enough for people to be able to make it their own, to take it and shape it so that it works for them, whenever and wherever they need it. Because of the flexibility and adaptability of this simple technology to so many different environments – from lampposts to bikes to restaurant tables – China truly has become the land of the QR Code.

  20. 我之前在这里谈到了越南令人兴奋的投资环境,特别是在胡志明市。 越来越明显的是,由于各种原因 - 不断增长的经济,有利的人口和积极的政府政策,越南目前投资时机已经成熟。 但那里的机会远远超过了胡志明市 - 所以在这篇文章中,我想把重点放在另一个越南的主要位置:岘港。 一个方便的位置 岘港对于那些想进入越南房地产市场的外国投资者(特别是对于我们在香港的人来说,这可以说是一个很有吸引力的选择)呢? 那么,第一个也是最明显的原因是它的可访问性。 岘港距离香港只有短暂的90分钟航程。 三家航空公司 - 国泰航空,香港快运,捷星航空 - 他们之间每周都会提供25航班,已经很好地服务了,预计未来还会有更多航班。 这种可访问性非常重要 - 当然这意味着您可以更轻松地从您的香港基地监控您的投资资产 - 但这也是岘港受到香港游客和其他游客欢迎的原因之一东亚的一样。 这是我们最近的和最容易到达的海滩目的地,因为这样的度假物业在香港有很高的需求。 理想的生活方式 尽管岘港作为越南第三大城市的地位,但它提供了比胡志明和河内更轻松的生活方式。 对于那些希望摆脱城市生活压力的人来说,这是一个完美的周末度假之地。 然而,因为它是一个中等城市,它拥有一流的基础设施,在东南亚的其他海滩度假胜地很难找到。 会安和岘港之间的海岸线 - 超过25km的美丽海滩 - 令人惊叹,吸引游客。 高尔夫也在蓬勃发展,沿海有四个世界级的18球洞球场,而且还有更多球场正在兴建。 对于许多游客来说,中心城市岘港也是探索越南其他地区的有用基地 - 会安世界遗产中心就在附近,该国历史悠久的前首都Hué也在附近。 岘港的外国和国内游客人数每年都以惊人的速度攀升。 总而言之,对于那些希望投资该地区的租赁房产的人来说,这是一个极具吸引力的套餐。 高品质的发展 那么外国投资者希望在那里购买房产有哪些选择? 那么首先要说的是,即使在像岘港这样的高端市场,你在越南可能会获得更多的钱。 我认为,我在岘港看到的投资房产质量最令人鼓舞的迹象之一就是它们的完成程度如何 - 对许多房产已经完成的工作具有真正的质量,已被提供到具有全球知名品牌的高标准。 与任何类型的投资一样,这是一个根据自己的喜好进行工作的案例,但选择范围从度假村管理的'condotels'和提供固定年度回报的别墅到未管理的单独公寓和别墅。 大部分高端物业属于第一类,对于不在越南的投资者来说,这是一个真正无忧的选择。 优质的餐饮选择的一个很好的例子是岘港尊贵度假村,那里设有118海滨别墅,都可以很方便地到达海滩。 从机场开车只需10分钟,开发项目包括餐厅,游泳池,健身房和水疗中心。 这只是众多开发商目前致力于在岘港附近沿海建设的度假胜地之一,看到他们正在完成并达到如此高的标准令人鼓舞。 良好的回报 当然,虽然美丽的位置很重要,但显然投资者也热衷于看到丰厚的回报 - 而且我认为这是岘港表现良好的另一个领域。 通常情况下,开发项目提供5到10十年以上年收益之间的任何交易 - 仅仅为了说明,岘港海滩上的融合套房目前提供6到8之间的保证收益计划,而Wyndham Soleil Danang在五年内保证5的回报。 然而,那些希望购买该地区保证收益的房产需要首先完成他们的功课,因为开发商承诺高租金回报往往伴随着房价的大幅上涨。 当然,就任何潜在的房地产投资而言,您需要作出自己的判断,并根据其优点来抓住每个发展机遇 - 但对我而言,岘港对于寻求良好回报的香港投资者来说是一个充满希望的目的地。 罗伯特·韦德

  25. 今天記另一場與另一位日本友人的聚會。彼此因茶結緣,所以約一早想好要約飲茶聚聚;在眾多星級餐廳中,她選出了中環米芝蓮一星的 營致會館 Ying Jee Club,我們一眾靚太(往自己臉上貼金了~XD)當然和應! 開業只是三個餘月便勇奪米芝蓮星的 營致會館,無論內外都貫徹以翠玉色為主調,格調清麗高雅悅目。相隔半年到訪,環境、餐單改變不大,服務也仍然不錯,例如可以遷就人數加減點心數目、主動添茶加水等,然而最忙碌時也會有應接不暇的情況。 不客氣開餐了!首先重溫 香蔥澳洲M9和牛千絲酥 ($78/3件, -1),由於日本友人及車媽媽分別不吃和牛/牛,所以只由我及清麗村姑分享;貌如手袋的千絲酥鬆化不得了,筷子一挾隨即斷成兩半,高水準令人想起三星 8餐廳 的出品! 接著分享 荔茸火鴨藏珍盒 ($69/3件, +1),點心炸功一流,外層清脆酥化,中間荔芋與火鴨的配搭也很美妙。品嚐炸點心時,份外需要靚茶配搭,而這裡茗茶質素很高,值得點名稱讚! 又重溫了 松露雜菜粿 ($69/3件, +1),粿皮內釀入三種菇菌及紅菜頭,面層再綴以黑松露醬,未吃先聞黑松露幽香,口感清新豐富兼帶微酸,是款健康清新又華麗的素食選擇。 這裡又嘗試了 鮑汁海味黃金粿 ($90/3件 +1),賣相或不及前者,但一咬開澎湃的花膠及海參,滋味鮮甜纏綿,美味得來又滿有美顏的骨膠原,女士們不可錯過呢! 來到 松露魚子龍蝦餃 ($120/3件, +1) 雖然也很足料,而且賣相高貴優雅,但口味偏向清鮮,鮮味反而不及海味黃金粿。二選一的話我會投前者啊! 如此悅目好看又美味有實力的點心,在香港的確不多見,誠然是米芝蓮星級水準啊! 接著又重溫了 脆香貴妃雞 ($280/半隻),之前分享過,此雞製法與傳統炸子雞截然不同,因此雞皮份外鬆化酥脆,同時肉質又加倍嫩滑,有種會令人一件又一件追吃下去的美味魔力。 同時也重溫了集清脆、皮薄、熱暖、香氣於一身,鹹甜味完美平衡的 迷你菠蘿焗叉燒包 ($69/3件, +1),不過吃完這超足料的叉燒包後,肚子也開始飽了..... 所以,去到之後的足料鮮甜 鮮蝦豚肉燒賣 ($78/3件, +1) 以及香口惹味 XO醬脆煎腸粉 ($88),雖然水準也很不錯,請原諒我開始「揸流灘」了.... 沒辦法,我還要留力品嚐甜品啊!首先是 桂花雪膠燉萬壽果 ($60),桂花香氣依依,配上甜美木瓜及滋潤雪燕,甜度剛好十分合胃;最後重溫又美又清新好吃的 楓葉柑橘鳳梨酥 ($54/3件, +1),又是時間捧著大肚腩回去接仔~ 兩個多小時的相聚說長不長,說短也不算短;然而四位靚太有著不少共同點,愛好又很相近,因此驚覺時間非常不夠!只好期待著下次再聚再吃~ 營致會館 Ying Jee Club 地址:中環干諾道中41號盈置大廈地下G05、107及108號舖 電話:28016882 Facebook:Ying Jee Club 營致會館 ** 想得知最新飲食情報,可追蹤 甜魔媽媽;欲得知甜魔一家消息,就追蹤 Matthew and Chloe 吧~~
