Little Burro (Causeway Bay)

During 24th-30th November 2013, Little Burro served a special Thanksgiving Burrito!

Previously they did a really good one for Halloween 2013 which was why I went back to try the Thanksgiving one.

The Thanksgiving Burrito is a burrito filled with Turkey meat slow-cooked with tequila and Mexican beer, dressed with a bourbon-spiked chilli cranberry jam!

The burrito is made to 600g just like their previous Halloween boo-rrito.

On this visit, I sat at their back yard which is nicely decorated with graffiti.

Before I tried it, you could visually see lots of turkey in the middle.

After trying it, I was quite disappointed because the turkey was dry and tasteless and there was too much turkey.

I could not even taste the tequilla or cranberry.

It would have been great if they mixed all the ingredients before making the roll so then all the ingredients would have an even taste with the beans and salad evenly distributed.

Since my last visit, it is good to see that they have refilled the bottles of water and have cups available for people to use.

Had a craving for curry but did not feel like eating meat so came here.

You can literally choose anything to go with the curry so I opted for the Tofu and okra curry as a base and added tomato and asparagus to it at an extra cost.

I really loved the curry sauce, the texture was similar to gravy with a prominent curry taste.

The ingredients I chose went well together especially the tomatoes which made the curry even more appetizing because the tomatoes they used were the canned type which have an acidic taste.

The okra and tofu were as good as usual and the asparagus gave it a nice crunch.

Blackest star!

The Blackstar Kitchen And cockails (Sheung Wan)

I thought I was going to like this place but after dining there I did not like it because of the customer service.

Arrived for lunch, when the tables were empty either side.

Ordered my lunch.

Shortly after that, people arrived and sat BOTH sideS BESIDE of me.

THE THING THAT PISSED ME OFF WAS THAT AFTER I ORDERED THEY DID NOT EVEN SERVE ME THE BREAD WHICH WAS ON THE MENU, IE SOUP WITH BREAD.

HOWEVER THEY SERVED BREAD TO THE PEOPLE EITHER SIDE OF ME WHO HAD NOT EVEN ORDERED YET.

I REALLY REGRETTED NOT WALKING OUT AT THIS POINT BECAUSE THERE ARE LOADS OF EATERIES NEARBY WHICH I HAVE YET TO TRY SO IT'S NOT LIKE I HAVE TO PUT UP WITH THIS CRAP.

AFTER ASKING THE WAITER WHETHER BREAD COMES WITH MY LUNCH SET, THEY SAID IT WAS COMING!

THEN AFTER QUITE A WHILE, I WAS SERVED THE BREAD.

+++++++++++++++++++++++

ACCORDING TO THE DUMB MENU, THE APPETIZER SAYS:

SOUP OF THE DAY, FRESH BREAD WITH HOUSE SALAD & AVOCADO PRAWN.

THE APPETIZER THEY GAVE OUT WAS PRETTY DAMN RANDOM TOO.

I WAS SERVED A PIECE OF FRITTATA/QUICHE WHILE THE OTHER TABLE WAS SERVED PROSCIUTTO.

THE TABLE BESIDE ME ALSO ORDERED THE REGULAR LUNCH SO THE APPETIZER SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE SAME BECAUSE IT WAS NOT THE CHRISTMAS SET LUNCH WHICH HAD THE SALMON FOR THE APPETIZER.

THE NOSY WAITERS WERE ALSO CURIOUS TO SEE WHAT PICTURES I WAS TAKING BECAUSE THEY WERE BEHIND ME PEEKING AT MY SCREEN.

........ENOUGH SAID......

THE FOOD WAS NOT IMPRESSIVE.
