isono

One of the most exciting new places to pop up in Hong Kong this year is of course PMQ! So glad to see more effort and dedication to artistic development in Hong Kong - and so far, they're doing pretty well at causing a lot of buzz with the near constant stream of activities going on in the venue.

Of the most interest to me, of course, is the arrival of several new restaurants. The area is already teeming with brilliant and much loved establishment, so I was eager to see what the newcomers have up their sleeves to survive the competition. The first of the lot that I tried was the restaurant and bar Isono, which occupies the top floors of the building with its fine-dining sister restaurant, Vasco.


Whilst PMQ generally has relatively low ceilings, Isono opens up to some extra ceiling room from their second floor. The result is a lofty and airy space, especially during the day when natural light streams in from the gigantic windows, which is perfect for the casual bar atmosphere they are trying to create. The circular bar in the center is particularly stunning and is the clear focal point of the entire restaurant. Fittingly, this is where I was seated for my lunch during my second visit to Isono.



There's a great set of cocktails on offer at Isono and I particularly like The Fix (I love a gin based cocktail!). There's also an extensive wine list and even a sommelier that can offer tailored recommendations, but since I was just having a casual lunch I opted for their draught beer.


I love the set up of Isono's lunch menu, which allows you to choose a different combination of starters, mains and sides/desserts depending on the number of people in your party. My friend and I opted for the one person lunch (1 main, 1 side/dessert and 1 coffee/tea) so that I could also order some dishes from the a la carte menu. Our starter of cod croquettes, for example, is not on the lunch menu but is a definite must-try!

Served with a smooth and light aioli, the croquettes are a perfect combination of cod and smooth potato batter (I think that's what it is?), giving it an almost creamy texture that is so incredibly moreish!


The main course recommended to us from the lunch menu was the roasted lemon spring chicken. Personally, I would not have chosen the spring chicken from the menu if I had not been recommended it (purely because it can easily go very wrong) but it was an unexpected winner! The chicken tasted pleasantly charred but was roasted only lightly, so that the skin is soft and juicy rather than crisp. The meat was also very tender and not at all dry. I wasn't too sure if the chicken was infused with lemon or if the zestiness came purely from the squeeze of lemon I gave it before digging in, but the lemon flavour was refreshing.


The main I ordered from the main menu was the meat paella, which I loved from my first evening visit. The rice in the paella was full of flavour as is, but where the shortrib or the juicy chicken thigh pieces are placed on the pan, the rice absorbs all the juicy goodness from the meats during cooking and packs a whole lot of extra punchiness. This is definitely the star of the meal to me!


Finally, returning to the lunch menu, I opted for the hazelnut creme brulee. This is also done very well, with the smooth creme made extra rich and decadent from the hazelnut, balancing out the flavours of the crispy burnt sugar. The sprinkling of nuts on top also adds a welcomed extra layer of crunch and texture to the dessert.


I would definitely recommend Isono for a relaxing lunch with friends thanks to their thoughtful lunch combinations (for example, lunch for 2 keeps it at 1 main and 1 side/dessert but throws in the choice of 2 starters), if not for a full evening experience! The dishes on offer are all well thought out and very well executed, not to mention the incredible ambiance of the stunning space.

barnyard

On my recent trip back to London, I made it my mission to visit all my old favourites: SpuntinoYauatcha and (of course) Duck and Waffle. I visited these places multiple times in the short time that I was back, leaving me very little opportunities to check out some of the newer openings in the big city. One of the new places I really enjoyed was Barnyard.

A recent opening on Charlotte Street, which is already full of various little gems that are worth visiting, Barnyard rocks a rustic, 'farm house' vibe (as its name suggests). As with most of the trendy new places in London, Barnyard operates on a 'no reservations' basis but takes it a little further as you can't even get onto the list until your full party has arrived. As a visitor in the city with nothing better to do than to rock up to the bar and start drinking until my friends arrive, this may pose to be a problem with people who are more occupied.


And the drinking is thoroughly enjoyable. One of the signatures of Barnyard is their array of milkshakes that all offer proper alcoholic and boring alcohol-free options. My pick of the lot is the Popcorn milkshake, spiked with bourbon. The popcorn milkshake itself has a sweet, dreamy flavour of slightly burnt caramel but avoids being sickly simply by being balanced out by the hint of bourbon coming through. If you're a fan of bourbon, I would recommend getting the milkshake with a double shot so that the bourbon and popcorn flavours are more equal and distinct.


Also on the drinks menu are a range of shandy made of either beer or cider, which are great for the less lactose-inclined, but honestly I loved the milkshakes too much to indulge in too many of these...


On to the food! My absolute favourite dish that I tried was the sausage roll. I'm a sucker for savoury pastries in general but this absolutely takes the cake as the best I've ever had! The emphasis of the sausage roll is definitely on the hefty chunk of sausage, which carries punchy, well seasoned and slightly herby flavours. The texture is slightly coarse, like a good home made sausage should be! I do wish there was a bit more pastry on the roll (because I love pastry), but there is a healthy little pocket of pastry skin tucked into the side of the roll for me to sink my teeth into.


The short rib was also excellent. Unlike most of the slow-cooked rib dishes you get, this charred number carries a lot more bite in the texture and has a hearty, charred meat flavour to it.


The wings were fried to perfection, crispy on the outside and juicy and tender on the inside, but I found the rub of sauce and herbs on the outside a little too overpowering. They were therefore less to my tastes, but altogether still pretty good.


There are also plenty of excellent 'healthy' options on the menu (I strongly believe milkshakes count as 'healthy' because every one needs their daily dose of calcium). I had this dish of duck's egg with asparagus, which is served slightly cool. This made for a very refreshing break from the heavier meat dishes and the asparagus in particular was spring-fresh and only cooked lightly, retaining its crispiness and tasting healthily green.


Barnyard's signature dessert of popcorn ice cream was unfortunately unavailable due to the ice cream machine having broken down (and was sadly still unavailable on my second visit). I was extremely disappointed as this has been raved about almost uniformly by those that have visited. I have been assured that the ice cream machine is already back in working order, so I will definitely be back the next time I'm in London!

All in all though, this is an enjoyable dinner (although I have read that they can be a little hit and miss with the food) but also a great place for drinks if you're a milkshake kinda person. The staff is friendly and makes you feel right at home. I love the dedication to the country-theme of the place, right down to the flannel shirt uniforms.

locofama

My first encounter with Locofama was at Clockenflap 2013, when I basically OD-ed on their truffle crab filled puffs and I immediately fell in love with them. So it wasn't long until I made my way to their actual location in Sheung Wan for a proper meal. Whilst it is always a bit of a hike to Fuk Sau Lane, but I love that it is in a secluded little alley with its 'half-outdoor' setting and the super relaxing atmosphere that Locofama seems perpetually to create.

Since then, I've been back quite a few times because I literally love everything about it: the 'half-open' space, the simple and rustic decor, the friendly people but most of all, of course, the mouthwatering and yet healthy food! (shocking I know)


Locofama does a whole range of very healthy looking juices - unfortunately a bit too healthy looking for me...


But I can never turn down a fresh young coconut! The best part about this is that there is an alcoholic version that comes with a shot of vodka - so you can feel fresh and get drunk at the same time (score!)


In the few times that I've hit up Locofama, I've quickly found my favourite dishes, and the first of them is the Truffle Crab Dip. If you read my Clockenflap post, you will know that the truffle crab puff was what made me fall in love with Locofama. At the restaurant, the bite-sized puffs are gone but in its place is a BOWL full of truffle crab dip and toasted baguette slices.

The dip is warm, rich and oh so fragrant with its big dollop of truffle. Every bite is simply filled crabby goodness! And you can forget your no-carb diet because I have never gotten away with not ordering an extra portion of bread even though every time I tell myself I shouldn't...


My personal favourite dish is their Tomato Fried Rice. The name itself is a little misleading, it's more like a tomato risotto. More importantly, instead of rice, it's made of quinoa! This means that although the flavours are moreish and satisfying, it is much less calorie laden than your average 'fried rice'. This is the ultimate feel good dish!


Another major signature dish of Locofama is the 48 Hour Rib. It's the perfect slow cooked meat dish - tender and silky smooth but still retaining a nice bite and a great meaty flavour. The tangy dressing is also a great match, especially because this often comes last, by which point you may be feeling more than a little full and completely thankful that this wonderful dish comes with such a zesty and mouthwatering sauce.


On top of these three MUST HAVE dishes, the menu also contains lots of amazing gems: happy avocado (yum), oolong soba (yum yum), spicy spinach quesadilla (yum yum yum)... The list goes on...

So if ever you're in the mood for a fix of good food that's good for your belly AND your figure, drop by Locofama! I promise you'll be greeted with a warm friendly welcome and some top notch nosh!

tonkichi

I've been seriously slacking with my blogging lately, so I thought I'd ease myself back into it with a short one about a place that's been one of my absolute favourites for a while! I've been meaning to write about Tonkichi for a while now, so I guess here's a bit of a 'throwback' post!

Tonkichi is one of the first tonkatsu focused restaurants I ever went to and, although Hong Kong has seen the arrival of many god-tier tonkatsu chains from Japan in recent years (such as Ginza Bairin), I still think Tonkichi is the top dog! Tonkichi has several branches scattered around Hong Kong and the one I usually go to is on Canton Road in Tsim Sha Tsui. Although I've been going back for several years now, the food has never once been disappointing and the service is also always very friendly and attentive.

Just look at this glorious platter of sinfully fried goodness.


Featured in this platter are prawn katsu (obviously) in the middle and working anti-clockwise we have pork loin to its right, oysters at the front, pork fillet and scallops on the far right corner. And then everything repeats once more on the other side.

Starting with the pork, there are the two main different forms of tonkatsu that is traditionally served: loin and fillet. Which one is better boils down to personal preference entirely: I prefer the pork fillet (only slightly) because it's more tender and juicy but some prefer the loin because it has much more flavour and offers a bit more bite. The batter at Tonkichi is always perfectly golden and extremely light. In fact, when you bite into your tonkatsu, you'll find that it is not greasy at all (hence the perfect deception into further sinning).

Another thing I love about Tonkichi is that its seafood katsu is just as spectacular as the tonkatsu! Whilst it may be quite easy to find a good prawn katsu, I truly love the oyster and scallop katsu here. The scallops are always in the perfect limbo between raw and cooked, the process of frying not disturbing (but elevating) its natural sweetness. The oysters are also where Tonkichi sets itself apart from your regular-joe Japanese restaurant, as they are always very fresh and juicy and never over-fried.

Tonkichi also does not skimp on its sides of lettuce and rice that is unlimited with every katsu dish. Although it's 'all you can eat', both the lettuce and the rice are top notch: the lettuce always refreshingly sweet even without the two different salad dressings that you can choose from, and the rice always the fluffiest and chewiest Japanese pearl rice.

Beyond its katsu, Tonkichi also does great sashimi, but not much else. Of course, this means that it can focus on the very excellent katsu!

As I mentioned before, I have been going back to Tonkichi again and again, and it's definitely a favourite of my entire family. I'd recommend going in groups too - that way you can have all the varieties of katsu they offer!

new year's eve at lily and bloom

Happy 2014!

For New Year's Eve this year, my friends and I were really feeling too old and tired to be pushing our way into Central for the countdown so we made the decision to actually have dinner at Lily and Bloom, where they were serving a 5 course dinner with open bar all the way until 3am!

The theme was Moulin Rouge and I loved that they took the theme very seriously: the place was all decked out and all the staff were dressed in great burlesque-themed outfits. There were also plenty of feather boas and top hats floating around for the guests!


I have to say that I was very impressed with how on top of things they were when it came to the free flow drinks. The champagnes, wines and cocktails were being served from the moment we sat down all the way through the evening.


The amuse bouche of the night was a French oyster, dressed in a tangy salsa sauce. This was a great opening to the dinner; the oyster was fresh and very smooth, whilst the dressing was refreshing and tantalising, which was perfect to get the appetite going! I did find a shard of broken shell in my oyster, but I seemed to be the only one so this is just a minor complaint.


Next came our starters. The majority of us ordered the bone marrow and escargot, which I really enjoyed! The escargot was tender and dusted with a good amount of breadcrumbs to give it an extra crunch. The bone marrow was the perfect texture, with a bit of salt served on the side to bring out its flavours. All in all, every component of the dish was perfectly done, even down to the sauteed spinach and the garlic mash.


The other starter that was ordered at our table was the salade nicoise, or at least a reimagined version of it. Admittedly, this did pale a little in comparison to the escargot and bone marrow, but the yellowfin tuna was nevertheless very well done and it was nice to have some greens in our otherwise very decadent meal!


Then came our truffle pasta courses: carbonara and gnocchi. Most of us ordered the carbonara, although surprisingly I enjoyed the gnocchi more.

The hand rolled fettucini pasta was perfectly cooked, with the wonderful chewiness I expected from hand rolled pasta. However, I felt that the pasta could have been coated with a little more sauce and, overall, the flavour of this dish was a little more subdued than I had expected, since the usual bacon and parmesan was swapped out for smoked pork belly and gruyere. I think that these did not pack enough of a punch in flavour, although I can see it having been a conscious decision to keep the dish light so that we could have made it through all the courses!


The less popular choice of gnocchi, on the other hand, was much more punchy with its flavours, thanks largely to the roasted onions and herbs it was cooked with.


Then came the main courses. We had several different choices on our table: the bouillabaisse, the iberico pork chop, the rack of veal and beef short rib and the grilled fillet mignon.

The bouillabaisse was great, with a great, lobster bisque-like soup base packed full of seafood goodness and a nice assortment of fishes and lobster with different textures. The sour dough bread was a perfect accompaniment for dipping!


I also liked the veal and beef short rib. I did think the veal was slightly too savoury, but it was very soft and tender. The beef short rib was fried in a cutlet-like batter with cheesy mash (I think that's what it was), which was unexpected but nevertheless very taste. The beef itself was very tender, which made for a wonderful combination of textures when covered in mash and crispy batter.


The highlight for me, though, was the pork chop. The Iberico pork chop was very well seasoned and perfectly roasted so that it was very tender. There was also a small amount of fat clinging to the side of the pork chop, which kept the whole pork chop very juicy. The pork chop was also served with some ribs, which was a very welcome surprise. The ribs were very tasty and the meat fell right off the bone.


The only dish I didn't try was the fillet mignon - mainly because I was so full at this point, but also because they were apparently slightly overcooked and weren't as good as my pork chop. They do look rather photogenic though.


For dessert I had the cheese platter, but I was honestly so stuffed by this point I didn't manage to have any of it..


All in all it was a great dinner and a wonderful way to ring in the new year! I'm now very interested in seeing what the Sunday brunch here has to offer, so hopefully I'll get to try that soon and write about it.

Most importantly, the free flow kept going strong until late into the night, which was very impressive! The cocktails on open bar that night were also very enjoyable, although I must remember never to drink absinthe-based cocktails ever again. The hangovers are absolutely terrible.

Once again, happy new year! And I hope 2014 brings in many good tidings for everyone!

clockenflap 2013

Dear blog, so sorry I've neglected you! I've been so busy lately that I've barely had any time to go out looking for good food to write about. But I managed to take a breather last weekend and make my way down to the one of the few West Kowloon events that's been the talk of the town lately - Clockenflap 2013!

This year was my first Clockenflap (I've always not been in town for them until this time).  The whole festival vibe had me feeling all Londonish and I had the best time ever! I squeezed my way into the middle of the crowds to watch The 1975s, who was the one band I was dying to see on the line up, but I also discovered some new music to be obsessed about (Nina Nesbitt was flawless and Metric were a hell of a good time!!). More importantly, of course, I managed to stuff my face with all sorts of good food.

The Butchers Club set up shop selling steak sandwiches and I beelined straight to them for my first bite of the weekend. To be honest, steak sandwiches can be quite hit and miss despite how simple they are. Steak can so easily be overcooked or left sitting for too long, especially in a 'festival' setting. But it all depends on the quality of the meat used, of course, so I was quite sure I wouldn't be let down by The Butchers Club. And boy was the sandwich amazing...


The steak was perfect: tender, juicy and seriously tasty - meaty and chargrilled. The steak itself literally did not need anything more on the flavour front, so the mild horseradish cream was a perfect condiment. The bun itself may have just been your regular soft roll, but it was the perfect sponge for all the juices from the sandwich.

Here I am sporting a Butchers Club sticker because I became an immediate groupie:


Thoroughly impressed by the first thing I tried, I migrated to the next stand. I'd never heard of Boomshack before but the menu itself was enough to draw me in...


Yes. A fried chicken waffle happened.


To be perfectly honest, there was next to no skill involved in making it (just a serious lack of morals to bring such a devilishly calorie-laden creation to me the world). But seriously, waffle, chicken and cheese was a match made in heaven and it was just so good. The chicken and cheese in itself was so horrifically greasy as to become automatically irresistible, but sandwiched between two slices of warm, toasty waffles?

Let's just say I came back for a second one in the same day and told all my friends to have one each. We ordered 8 in one go, which is probably why they ran out by Sunday (imagine my disappointment).


To sort of balance my foodly sins (and copious amounts of beer), I stopped at the Locofama stand for some healthy organic food. I'd heard of Locofama before, but have yet to pay them a visit on the Island so it was great to have a little preview at Clockenflap.


I had all three things they offered: short rib mini burger, lobster and crab mini burger and black truffle crab puffs (minus the quinoa salad of course. I may have felt bad for those chicken waffles but I hadn't gone mad...).

I thought the short rib burger was good and the lobster burger was very refreshing, but neither of those things could hold a candle to the awesomeness that were the crab puffs. Each of those little pastry cups (on the right in the picture) was stuffed with crab that was cooked in a lobster bisque-like sauce. Every bite was bursting with flavour like a warm hug to each and every beer soaked taste bud and I chomped my way through 6 of these before I could bring myself to move on.


All in all, Clockenflap was a great time not just for music lovers, but for food lovers too! A huge hand to the organisers for putting together such a great event and I'm so glad that this type of festival is making its way into the Hong Kong way of life. I will definitely be booking my tickets early for next year's Clockenflap!

sunday brunch at st betty's

With the weekday blues in full effect, it's time to stop being productive and reminisce on the ghosts of weekends past... All week long I look forward to a lazy Sunday Funday spent with friends, preferably eating good food and over ample boozing. What better way to have both of these things than with a free flow Sunday Brunch? One of the most stellar examples I've had recently was at St Betty in IFC.

Walking into St Betty, I was immediately drawn by the airy and bright interiors, as well as the relaxing sea view they have by their numerous windows. The setting is absolutely perfect for spending a lazy afternoon! Once I settled into a very comfortable sofa, the free flow sparkling wine began and we were brought these adorable bread rolls, served warm.


A lot of the offerings on the weekend brunch menu are new and exciting-sounding renditions of brunch staples. For example, amongst the various egg options were these ones baked in a Josper oven with slices of chorizo, spinach, red onion and goats cheese. Each of these ingredients brings a different flavour to the table and each one jumps out at you with every mouthful. A great (and hot) start to our meal!



Next came the home made spaghetti. Whilst there was nothing out of the ordinary about the tomato sauce, there's nothing I love more than some home made spaghetti! Completely unlike the usual bite-less factory-made varieties we are usually served, the spaghetti was very chewy and held onto the flavours of the sauce very well.


The star of the meal were these sweetcorn fritters (the fritters themselves almost completely obscured in this photo, unfortunately). Whilst there is nothing not to love about good sweetcorn fritters in themselves, the ricotta cheese sauce was the indispensable icing on the cake - giving the fritters much more depth in its flavour. Overall, the whole dish is very well thought out and balanced: the ricotta sauce and the sausage slices making the fritters meaty and moreish but completely counterbalanced with the sweetcorn 'salsa' on top. We ordered another serving.


Of course, no lazy Sunday would be complete without a good old British Roast - and this one was perfect! Served very pink, the beef was silky soft but packing great flavour. The yorkshires might not be much of a looker, but surprisingly they were perfectly done too: its browned, crispy shell giving way to soft and warm insides. The trimmings served are also not the usual baby carrots and peas (aka. frozen 'vegetables') - my favourite being the roasted root vegetables.


The only thing we weren't happy with that day was the dessert that came with the roast: a rhubarb and apple crumble. The crumble was not at all crumbly (the texture was more like soggy cake) and the rhubarb and apple mixture was overly sour. Hopefully this was a one-off problem, because I don't want this to put me off having their roast again!


For those that don't know, St Betty is the new(ish) reincarnation of Betty's Kitschen. I had tried and not loved Betty's Kitschen when it was still there, so I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed my brunch.

For everyone that's written Betty off, it's time to give it a second chance!

chachawan

I have been missing London with every fibre of my body lately and no where more so than all my favourite Soho spots for nights out of drinks and food and more drinks. What better place to cure my London Soho cravings but our very own Soho here in Hong Kong?

One of the newer additions to the Sheung Wan food scene is the Thai eatery, Chachawan. Although they have yet to obtain an alcohol license as of my last visit, the place exudes all the charm and character of your typical Soho joint that I have come to love (the things I would do to hit up Spuntino right now...). The seating is limited and there's often a queue during dinner hours, but if you want something special out of your night's meal, Chachawan is well worth the wait.


Unlike your typical Thai food place that you can find around every corner here in Hong Kong, Chachawan steers rather clear of the generic dishes we have grown accustomed to. Instead, Chachawan brings us 'Isaan' cuisine from Northern Thailand. The cooking is focused on charcoal grilling but the flavours used are sharp, spicy and tangy, making for some very refreshing flavours and combinations.

We started with the Grilled Squid and Coriander Salad, dressed in green chilli and lime. This was perfectly done - the squid was soft and springy whilst the dressing was an addictive blend of sour and spicy flavours. I'm not usually that great with spicy food (nor do I like coriander much) but this salad had me continuously picking at it. This salad will really get your appetite roaring for more, which is good because we had a lot more food to come...


Next, a staple of most South East Asian cuisine: grilled pork collar. This rendition was stellar: the meat was not just very tender (as you would expect), but it was also very well marinated and moreish. This is not your typical grilled pork with some store-bought sauce slapped over it! But whilst the pork was perfectly delectable on its own, it's the 'jhim jeaw' sauce that really sets the dish apart from its peers - giving the meat a further smoky flavour, as well as a small sour-spicy kick.


On to the signature dish that gets raved about by everyone that's been to Chachawan - the whole-grilled, salt-crusted sea bass. When the fish is served whole at your table, the charred and dry layer of salt-crusted skin may be slightly off-putting. But once this is cracked open and lifted off the fish, a flurry of steam rises from the fish and it's obvious that the fish is perfectly cooked.

The flesh can literally be lifted off in fillets and each bite is silky soft, with the sweet natural juices of the fish still clinging onto it. As you can see, the fish is stuffed with lemongrass and other herbs before being grilled, so it's already very aromatic, but again the sauce really takes it to another level. Another refreshing blend of flavours that somehow manages to cover every spectrum of your tastebuds at once: sweet, savoury, sour and spicy with every bite. Again, I found myself picking at the dish until there was nothing left but bones and salt-crusted skin, having already drained the sauce dish of its goodness.


Having made our way through all that, it was time to strap on that second stomach for some dessert. We had both the classic mango sticky rice and the banana pancake and both were to die for.

Unlike the usual cloying and mushy sticky rice you get in your typical Thai restaurant, this sticky rice has a lot more texture and you can actually make out the individual granules of rice. The coconut milk is rich and slightly savoury, which works wonders with the fresh mango.


The banana pancakes consist of a folded roti over banana slices, drizzled with condensed milk - seriously a match made in heaven of three things that I adore. Nothing more to say about this except yes, it tasted every bit as good as it sounds.


Although there is much left in Sheung Wan for me to explore, especially as the core food scene of Central continues to expand outwards, I am already raring to go back for another spin at Chachawan. Besides the fact that there is no alcohol served (yet), Chachawan just ticks all the boxes from food quality to service standard to decor.

To a certain extent, I'm actually glad that alcohol isn't available yet, because it means their turnover rate can be faster and waits can be shorter. But then again, I'm really looking forward to the day they bring out some Thai cocktails to go with the absolutely perfect food that they're serving.
