This is the first time to this cafe in Tsuen Wan, even though I have been living there for over 3 years. My friends came to visit me as there was no one at home at day, so we decided to try this out since my dad recommended this cafe to me. When we went inside, they put us in a table where it says 'Reserved', which made us thinking whether there is actually someone that is supposed to be sitting on the table or not..
We sat down and they gave us the lunch set menu. We ordered 3 lunch sets with an additional cost of $15, that includes either Garden Salad or Soup of the Day (Onion Soup), tea/coffee and dessert of the day (Ice-cream Puff). For main course, we had English Fish and Chips with Spaghetti, American Beef Burger with Potato Wedges and Salad, Ceasar Salad with Smoked Salmon. (The names of the main course is what it was written in the menu.)
When the onion soup arrived, it was very disappointing. My friends' bowl were too salty, but mine tastes really watery. So it kept us wondering whether it is from the same bowl or not
English Fish and 'Chips' =='
The 'English Fish and Chips' came after 10min and surprisingly there are no chips!! We asked why there arent any, and we are told that the spaghetti had replaced the chips... == THEN PLEASE DO NOT PUT 'CHIPS' WITH THE FOOD NAME!! That is very misleading for the consumers. The fish was nicely deep-fried, not too oily, but we thought that they had put loads of salt in it.
The beef burger came next and it was really nice, despite that the burger had so much oil that it has seeped into the bottom of the bread and it makes the burger less appetising to eat. And the 'potato wedges' are not even close to its name.. they are just fries..... I really have nothing to say.... I just think that when putting the name for the food, they must be accurate, whether it is in English or Chinese.
Ceasar Salad.. REALLY GOOD!!
I have to say that the salad is the best. Suitable amount of Ceasar dressing, reasonable amount of smoked salmon, mixed with dried bacon and croutons. We really enjoyed this salad.
The dessert is ice-cream puff.. We feel that it is very rushed and heartless. I feel that for Italian food one of the highlights is the dessert, as it is the 'closing ceremony' of the food. The plate has two puffs with chocolate sauce. It doesn't taste anything special.
New York Cheesecake
Because we feel that we did not have enough, so we decided to order three more desserts: New York Cheesecake, Blueberry Cheesecake and Tiramisu. Tiramisu is really really bad, too much rum and there is so much coffee that when you try to spoon the mixture, the coffee just seeps into the cream and it makes the whole dessert look really disgusting. The cheesecakes though are really good, especially the blueberry cheesecake, but one of my friends feel that the cheesecake from Starbucks is way better than this one..
We had altogether 3 people having this lunch and we spent a total of $307.... to be honest, I would not go here again.... maybe just for afternoon tea
