It is amazingly refreshing and it is provided with honey in a jar for extra sweetness. Pear & Strawberry with Dill Detox water, honey syrup Kicked off with a “Create Your Own Sandwich” platter, CYOS in short, it is to DIY our own open sandwiches with plenty of fresh ingredients such as the signature beetroot cured salmon, Brie, avocado slices, also with cream cheese spread and honey mustard dressing. The sourdough toast is very crunchy and is served with two kinds of spread, one fresh butter and one blueberry jam.

Beetroot Cured Smoked Salmon, Avocado, Sourdough Toast For mains, each of them are 2-3 person serving, and first comes the roasted prime rib-eye. It is made excellently medium rare, perfectly pink and rich in flavor, along with a slab of melting butter and creamy buttery mashed potato on the side.

  15. Settled at the buzzing Harbour City inside LCX, it is the Korean bistro and restaurant, also the first overseas branch of The Joomak. It has a stunning harbour view with an edgy interior design, along with K-pop background music, it serves some Korean fusion cuisine. The Joomak The Restaurant View 餐廳景色 One of the restaurant signatures and must-have would be a Mate Tea 4C°C Noodle. It is basically thin soba noodle served with assorted sides including sliced cucumber, kimchi, Korean pear and a soft boiled egg; they also offer choices of meat (pork or beef) to vegetarian. Served aside a herb and yuzu sauce, it is sharp-flavored but very palatable. Mate Tea 4C°C Noodle 瑪黛茶 4°C 冷麵 Korean Shredded Beef Rib 手撕韓式牛肋骨 Kimchi, Pear, Cucumber, Soft Boiled Egg 泡菜, 香梨, 青瓜, 溏心蛋 The menu offers a good selection of Korean fried chicken, and most of them comes with an unbelievable dressing. Such as an avocado and lime fried chicken, the sauce is thick and creamy with a hint of tanginess from the lime. The deboned chicken meat is juicy on the inside and crunchy on the outside, thickly battered and sprinkled with a particularly flavoursome cheese powder. Lime & Avocados Fried Chicken with Cheese Powder 青檸牛油果麻藥炸雞 Lime & Avocados Fried Chicken with Cheese Powder 青檸牛油果麻藥炸雞 Self-grilled angus ribeye is another recommended choice. Served aside raw shiitake mushrooms, onion rings and cabbage, there are a few pieces of mozzarella for us to melt on the ribeye. The Angus ribeye is sizzled on the cast iron plate, to your desire doneness, it is indeed succulent and mouthwatering. Sizzle Grilled Angus Ribeye 板燒安格斯肉眼排 Finally, a tiramisu with Movenpick tiramisu ice cream, ladyfingers and coffee is very satisfying.

  16. Bao Bei – A Year After | A Brand New Menu

    Tucked away down an underground space on Wyndham Street, Bao Bei is still the made-in-Hong-Kong eatery and bar located in the nightlife hub of Hong Kong. Introducing a brand new menu a year after, it still serves small plates of east-meet-west dishes with a playful and modern presentation. Bao Bei Bao Bei A Sichuan Edamame to start, seasoned with hot Sichuan pepper and chili oil. Followed by thinly sliced pork belly with chili garlic sauce, and a very refreshing hand-pulled chicken salad with mixed greens and a moreish wasabi sesame dressing.

The rice has been pretty well flavored with “furikake”, a kind of Japanese rice seasoning, pan-seared and stuffed with tender char siu, arugula, caramelized onion and a runny fried egg, despite the barbecue sauce is a tad too sweet for my liking. Char Siu & Egg Rice Burger Homemade Cantonese BBQ pork patty, fried egg, arugula, caramelized onion Char Siu & Egg Rice Burger Homemade Cantonese BBQ pork patty, fried egg, arugula, caramelized onion Pork Belly Bao Sous-vide pork belly, portobello, pine flowers, apricot salsa, gravy, pork floss Favourites are the popular mapo tofu fries baked with cheese, minced pork, tofu and chili over a huge bed of thin cut fries; chewy and batter-fried rice cake covered with creamy cheesy carbonara sauce.

  17. One of my favourite desserts in Bangkok is probably a mango sticky rice shaved ice. And lately, a new dessert shop opened in Argyle Centre, Mongkok, happens to create a very similar version. Chatuchak Shave Ice 翟道翟棉棉冰 Chatuchak Menu 餐牌 They offer mainly three shaved ice flavors including durian sticky rice and Thai milk tea, but mango sticky rice flavor is surely the most popular order here. Consist of sticky rice topped with mango shaved ice, chopped mango and mango sauce; the coconut cream on top is amazingly thick and creamy, which melts perfectly into the shaved ice. Mango Sticky Rice Shaved Ice 芒果糯米飯棉棉冰 Mango Sauce, Mango Shaved Ice 芒果醬, 芒果刨冰 The serving of sticky rice at the bottom is also warm and generous, whilst the crispy rice sprinkled over is a bit hard to chew. Coconut Cream, Crispy Rice 椰奶忌廉, 脆米 There are also a list of drinks including milkshake, soda and their home brewed Thai milk tea, and we opt for a Tom Yum Gung soda that is merely spicy but refreshing.

It is basically an idea of reinventing traditional dishes starting from the cook techniques and its presentation, using fresh ingredients to bring old and new flavors together to the table.

Casa Lisboa Gastronomia Portuguesa Portuguese Brunch Menu House Marinated Portuguese Olives & Pate with Bread Beginning with a cold crab salad with toast, it is in fact a delicious mix of poached crabmeat, mayonnaise, onion and celery.

Leitao A Bairrada Slow roasted suckling pig “A Bairrada” Style A new feature on the menu is a Portuguese sandwich, or burger, looked super cheesy and packed with flavoursome roast beef, pork belly, and a fried egg on top, despite the house sauce is a bit too salty for my liking.
