台式小火鍋專門店;
很鮮甜的蕃茄湯底;
很有特式的豬血糕;
小店環境不錯, 服務好。
會再試!

Decent Taiwanese hot pot restaurant.
Hotpot for one with unlimited sides;
Very flavourful tomato broth;
Interesting Taiwanese black pudding.
Worth a try!

I like Ipot:

I was drawn to this Taiwanese hotpot restaurant because of the black pudding. I've had Taiwansese black pudding many years ago in, surprise, surprise, Taiwan. 

This place was fairly near Tai Hang MTR station and wasn't hard to locate.

It's a relatively small restaurant. Simple decor, brightly lit with just about 4-5 tables for two and about two bigger tables for groups of 4-6. The air ventilation was acceptable. No complaints.

 
小店形式。3-4張 2人抬及2張6人抬。光猛。通風算很不錯。服務亦親切。

A number of set meals were available at fairly reasonable prices.

We chose a Lobster set at HK$360 and a Standard meal set at HK$270
多款套餐供應。每人約$200-$380不等。

Broths: 

Spicy:
You could choose from different levels, from the lowest "minimal" level, then "Baby level" all the way up to "Hospital level" and "Coffin level". I choose "Baby" first. It was really quite mild.

I asked the friendly waitress to "upgrade" the level of spiciness of my broth - twice.  So I suppsoe my broth should be at least "Hospital" level if not "Coffin" level. Even at those levels, it's managable. It's not as spicy as Tan You Tou's or even Ling Kee. It had more cinnamon taste. Not bad but not spectacular. 
我們點了番茄湯及 【BB】級麻辣一試水溫。發覺真的很BB。友善的台灣侍應幫我加辣兩次。應達''醫院''或''棺材''辣但譚魚頭或寧記的更辣。

Tomato broth: The tomato broth on the other hand was wonderful. It had a very refreshing tomato taste. Definitely one of the best in town. Recommended.  lol
十分清甜。可能是暫時吃過最好的蕃茄湯。

Kagoshima pork: I almost confused this with very thin lamb meat. Not bad but not as tasty as I had expected it to be. Kagoshima pork is usually a lot more flavourful. A bit pricey for HK$270, the second most expensive item on the menu (the first being beef). 

New Zealand lamb slices: Pronounced and flavourful lamb taste. The texture was firm. I'm more happy with this than the pork from Kagoshima.  smile
肉味和肉質均不錯。有點騷味。比鹿児島豚肉好。豚肉有點''削'',價錢偏貴。

Lobster: Very flavourful. shocked  Excellent with the tomato broth! Not a lot of meat but the lobsters turned the whole tomato broth into a quasi lobster bisque! Σ(゚д゚lll) Very good. 
跟海鮮餐的一隻小龍蝦與蕃茄湯非常夾。肉的份量OK。

A special feature of this place was that they served all you can eat sides. They had a decent amount of vegetables, interesting variety of fish balls and meat balls such as: 
Taiwanese Mushroom and Pork balls, Octopus , Cod fish mixed with tofu, Salmon fish dumplings, Lobster balls, Crab Roe balls, Cheese fish balls, fish balls with broth/chili/cheese...etc.

The Salmon dumplings reminded me of the fish sausages made in Japan.
質素不錯, 飽肚之選。

The veggies were very fresh. They had lettuce, turnip, enoki, lotus roots, spinach, tofu and more.

Unlimited non-alcoholic drinks such as soft drinks and three types of juices ("dark plum" juice, roselle (?) juice and standard plum juice).

However, the alcoholic drinks were exepnsive. I ordered three cans of Taiwan Beer -two gold label and one pineapple beer. HK$30 per can. Pretty pricey in my opinion.

(Btw, talking about pineapple beer, the one made in China and sold in most supermarkets is even better.)

Paid sides:
其他追加的食品價錢合理但啤酒$30一小罐則有點貴。

Black pudding: The much anticipated black pudding. Thinner than the one I had in Taiwan and had no "five spices". Surprisingly better in the tomato soup than the spicy broth. It's like a soft and chewier version of black pudding. I'm very happy with this. lol

It might have been better if they could provide "5 spices powder".

(HK$20 for 10 thin pieces.)
遠道而來的就是為了這個。$20十塊。比台灣的薄一半。味道差不多。如有五香粉則會更好! 滿意的一餐。

Conclusion:

Because of the beers and the kagoshima pork, it came down to about HK$380 per head.

I was very happy with the whole meal.

Excellent service. The Taiwanese lady was smiling throughout and very friendly to customers.

It's refreshing to experience genuine Taiwanese hospitality (and Taiwanese black pudding) in Hong Kong again!

英式煎魚午餐質素很高.
香草薯茸及略為煎香的蔬菜有誠意.
裝修簡約舒適,能令人放鬆.
服務好。如在附近, 不妨一試。

Nice, simple soothing decor;
Flavourful and creamy soup;
Very good pan fried turbot;
Great ambience, good service;
Simply good.

Limehouse:

After a particularily busy morning in an already hectic week, I was longing for a place to have some peace and quiet. It was either O La La (for noodles) or Limehouse. 

It was my first time here and I wasn't quite sure what to expect in view of the mixed reviews.

The first thing which impressed me was the simple and soothing wood based decor with cool air-conditioning and relaxing guitar as background music.

The wooden tables and chairs were reasonably spaced apart.

chopstick

The quiet spoken waiter handed me a simple menu, aptly entitled, the "Simple Lunch":
應定時轉的簡單餐牌。晚上好像有Fish&Chips供應。

I ordered the pan fried turbot. 

I suspect they change this now and then. I believe they do fish and chips at night as well.

Soup of the day: 

This was "Cream of Pea and Crab Meat". This was very good.  Rich, smooth, and creamy. There was a fair amount of crab meat and a smaller amount of green peas.
蟹肉份量絕不欺場。配上青豆茸的忌廉湯及很幼滑, 味道亦濃郁。很不錯! 但沒有餐包供應很不尋常。

The slight quibble I had was that no bread was provided together with the soup, whch was very odd for a Western restaurant. sad Nevertheless, I really enjoyed the soup.  lol

Pan Fried Turbot with Mango Tomato Salsa:

Two large pieces of turbot on a substantial bed of mashed potatoes. 

The mashed potatoes were smooth and buttery. Not as buttery as the signature mash at Robuchon a Galera but certainly a lot healthier. The herbs inside the mash added complexity to the taste.
煎得皮脆肉嫩,魚油豐腴。時間掌握得十分好。很讚!

The two turbot fillets were large and had a lot of fish oil. The skin was nice and crispy but the meat was tender. It mixed very well with the sweet mango and tomato salsa sauce. 
沒有像澳門米芝蓮三星老富昌般像吃牛油一樣但仍富有牛油香味。混了香草吃起來多了一份層次感。

The good amount of veggies that came with the turbot were also fresh and crunchy. Even the Brussels Sprouts were slightly pan fried beforehand, which got rid of the grassy taste in most sprouts.   lol
跟餐的薯菜都很有水準。菜曾被輕輕煎過,去除了草青味。

品在港首間Cafe。

質素不錯但性價比很低。

Good service

Average food.
Poor value for money.

Less meat, more vegetables:

Queuing up for organic vegetables is not my ideal way of spending a Sunday afternoon. My wife was interested in trying this newly opened Muji Cafe so being the good husband I complied (I managed to persuade my wife not to try this for dinner the night before. A boring lunch is more bearable than a boring dinner.)
 
Much to my surprise, even at 2:30p.m., we had to queue for more than 10-15 mins.  shocked

You can have a look at the menu while you're queuing, the theme here being "Nutritious, Healthy Food" and "Less meat; More veggies." Sounds expensive already.  tongue
簡約裝修, 環境不錯。要''蹋''抬的。 慨念: 健康的原味料理。

System:
The system of purchasing food is a bit similar to Starbucks. First you queue for a table. After you get a table, queue at the food counter and choose what you like. Pay at the cashier there and then. After you finish, I think you're supposed to hand your trays back to the staff.

Although the menu featured twenty main items, I saw less than half of those actually available at the food counter. 
主要都是沙律, 薯仔和南瓜構成的菜式。有少量雞肉和豬肉供應。

This was what my wife choose:

Two pieces of chicken chunks: This was covered in what appeared to by sweet Thai style chilli sauce one uses for dipping prawn cakes. The meat was extremely tough. MacDonalds or KFC serve more succulent chicken pieces. Bad start.  sad

Vinegar marinated bitter gourd, egg plants and carrots: This was just like some appetizers you get for free in many Japanese restaurants. I'm not sure whether the bitter gourd was from Okinawa or not. It was quite bitter but had a strong liqourice aftertaste. The egg plants and carrots might have been from Japan. Not bad.

The black seaweed (hijiki) is yet another typical appetizer at Izakayas like Hoka Hoka or Fuji no Sahi. It's apparently good for your hair. Those were mixed with some turnip sprouts. This combination was rather weird. At least the sprouts were fresh. Again, not bad.

Nasu with fried pork: These were marinated in a bit of miso. Again, fresh vegetables and decent pork meat but nothing wildly different from most authentic Japanese restaurant in town. 

Miso soup: The miso soup was similar to a "tonjiru" (miso soup with carrots, burdock, onions and slices of pork) served at Ootoya. The quality was good. The miso was fairly pronounced . The veggies in it were crunchy too. Good.  smile   (You can purchase the miso soup at Muji.)

On average, it's about HK$18-20 for each small scoop of "appetizers". Not value for money.

Less meat, Less vegetables:
試了太太的4品料理後已很無癮。為求止蝕及飽肚點了咖哩飯。($80)

I wasn't interested in pay HK$98 for four small scoops of veggies. Fortunately, there was something which looked more substantial - "Butter Mixed Vegetables Chicken Curry." (HK$80)

It's supposed to be "North Indian Style" curry with veggies and chicken chunks. When it arrived, I was fairly disappointed with both the amount of curry sauce and the amount of meat and veggies in the curry.
實物和圖片差天共地。汁及料都極小。只得一塊一分為二的雞肉及八小粒雜菜。

The curry seemed to me to be a lighter and milder type of S&B curry. It wasn't spicy at all. To be fair, it was fairly smooth and had some buttery taste.

However, it only had a pathetic amount of chicken in the "chicken" curry: just one small piece of half a chicken chunk. sad  Less than ten pieces of veggies. In my humble opinion, this is bringing the "less meat" concept a bit too far.

You could choose between normal rice or "10 grain rice". Similar to what you could get at most health food shops nowadays. I'm pretty sure MUJI sells that too. The rice was pretty soft and fluffy. It was good.  smile

As part of the set, you could choose an item from the food counter. I choose pork belly in vinegar sauce. The pork was good. It reminded me of the black vinegar dishes served at Ootoya. Again, the portion was rather small. If this was part of the "4 Item set", it would mean about HK$18-24 for two slices of pork belly.

The miso soup was similarly good.

Nevertheless, because of the poor curry, I was not happy about my set at all. I finished the whole set in 15 minutes but felt pretty hungry afterwards.

chopstick

Sweets:
隨處可買到的Caramel pudding 及茶味帶苦的檸檬茶 - $68  總結: 食物質素不錯(所以挽回OK)但份量太少,不抵食。不會再來。

The caramel pudding came with a cup of lemon tea. The taste of the lemon tea was too strong. My wife couldn't handle it.

The caramel pudding was not significantly different from those one could get in most super markets. Is this worth HK$66? I'm not sure. Having said that, it is a comfy place with good service.

chopstick

Less is not more:

My wife's lunch set with the pudding set came down to HK$166. For a similar price, you could get unlimited refills of fresh veggies AND unlimited cooked dishes at "Vegi" (TST branch - but that was a while ago.) I consider the price here a bit of a rip off.

I will not consider returning. I thought long and hard on whether this should be OK or a Crying face. My wife thought it was OK (perhaps because I paid.) To be fair, the quality of the food was OK. But the price wasn't. 

You've been warned.

Supplementary Information:
4品及甜品餐約共$165。 以差不多價錢在Vegi已有無限素菜和熟食放題。(曾在TST店吃過, 不知現在還有沒有。)

提供釀吉列豬柳;

茶漬飯則不濟。

Interesting Japanese Pork Kiev;
Decent quality pork chops but fairly oily;
I suggest choosing udon or rice instead of ochatsuke.

chopstick

Daikuya: Pork Kiev

Located at Hysan place. I originally wanted to try Kinzawa Ramen again but was attracted by this new shop, which appears to serve a Japanese interpretation of "Chicken Kiev". Instead of using chicken, they used pork. Instead of fine breadcrumbs, they used a grainer type commonly used for Japanese style cutlets.
有釀吉列, 普通吉列及數款炸物如魷魚和炸蛋。套餐跟飯,烏冬或茶漬飯。

Choose from cutlet pork with these fillings: spinach , shredded turnip with miso, curry and another one which I can't remember. Reasonably priced as far as Japanese cutlets are concerned: HK$45-53.

You could also choose normal cutlets and other deep fried items such as squid, egg and many more.

If you choose set, you could also choose from Ochatsuke, Rice and Udon.

I ordered a pork kiev set with ochatuke and an addiitonal battered squid.

After placing your order, you need to hang around the shop as it's apparently made to order. I waited for about 10 minutes.

chopstick
太少湯。湯亦沒有任何味道。飯素亦不能提升食味。椰菜沙律菜役不鮮, 很普通。

The presentation was pretty good. The salad that came with it was just chopped cabbage with a bit of salad cream though.

However, let me get the ochatsuke out of the way first. As part of the set, you could choose amongst rice, udon in soup or ochatsuke. I think anything else should be better than ochatsuke.

They should give me at least triple the amount of tea or soup so that it completely
covered the rice. The soup that came with the ochatsuke was extremely bland and tasteless. It almost tasted like water. The furikake did not improve the taste at all. It turned the whole bowl into something very unappetizing.

Not recommended.  sad

chopstick

Batter: Not quite good as Cu-Tu-Ya's but not bad as far as food court goes. Fairly oily so not for the health conscious. It was crunchy enough.
吉豚屋較好。這有一點油但算鬆化。豚肉質素不錯。

On the other hand, the batter used for the squid was significantly better. Crunchy yet not oily at all. The quality of the battered squid was also good. Better than Marugame.  smile
比吉列豚的炸得更好。沒有油膩感。魷魚質素不錯。

Filling: Back to the "Pork Kiev" - neither the taste of the miso nor the turnip were that pronounced. I expected the turnip to be daikon oroshi (grated white turnip) but these were just a few thinly sliced turnips and perhaps two teaspoons of light miso.
味噌味道不算突出。數塊薄切的蘿蔔味道還可,如加多一倍相信能減低油膩感。可能選spinach較好。

I think spinach should be a much better choice.

The pork used was decent. It's was reasonably tender and had a decent pork taste. smile

However, I suggest cutting it into five to six pieces instead of just three large chunks, which made it difficult to handle.
像基輔炸雞的日式釀吉列慨念不錯但執行力有待改善。

Kenko ramen ~ Healthy ramen?

This shop was apparently from Kobe. It's actually located amongst the Dai Pai Dongs at Central. It's very near Wai Kee.

chopstick

Decor:

It's like a spacious version of Tamashii. The chairs weren't extremely comfortable. Get a table if possible.

A small open kitchen with two Japanese chefs and two Hong Kong chefs.
比魂略大一點。約2-3張抬及約10張面向開放式廚房的高凳。提議抬較舒服。分別有兩位日籍和港籍師傅駐場。

I have to say it wasn't easy to identify the distinctive features of this shop.

Ramen application form in three languages:
 
I chose the "Kenkou ramen" (healthy ramen),
Thick noodles ( as opposed to a thinner type of ramen);
Hard texture (choose from 4 levels of hardness);
Flavored oil ( I suspect it's garlic oil);
With oolong tea.

湯底: 比一般豚骨清淡。入口有點豬''騷''味, 之後有點似淡口的長浜No.1和David。有驚喜。

Noodles: Very eggy. Similar to a very hard hybrid between yau min and Shang Hai thick noodles. A bit too hard for my taste. mad  I recommend normal hardness if you choose thick noodles.
似上海粗麵與油麵之間的味道和質地。蛋味適中但中間未熟透太硬。點普通應好一點。

Char Siu:
Four large pieces of grilled char Siu. Three thin cut and one thick cut (not sure whether that's deliberate or not.)
三塊薄的肉味香濃有脂香。一塊厚的應為豬肩肉, 較瘦和實一點。

The three thin ones were good. Good balance between fat and lean meat. Grilling it brought out more aroma.

The thick one on the other hand was fairly dry (as it's mostly lean meat) and tasteless.

Egg: This was not spectacular but decent. The egg yoke wasn't runny but the egg was flavourful.
不是流心但蛋味適中。湯底亦有大量爽口椰菜和芽菜。

Broth: Tonkotsu based. Fairly powerful Tonkotsu flavour. Somewhere between David Ramen and Nagahama No.1 but with a more detectable pork stench which many Tonkotsu fans should like.

Less oil than ButaO. Perhaps this, the decent amount of crunchy Japanese cabbage, spring onions marinated in sesame oil and the generous amount of nori were the elements of "healthiness" referred to.

I haven't had a decent Tonkotsu broth in a while so this came as quite a plesant surprise.  lol

chopstick

Service: No complaints about it. When each customer left the place, they all said thank you in Japanese.

HK$120: not too sure whether it's healthy for your wallet!  tongue
