Spaghetti House worths more than just a plate of spaghetti!
I love Spaghetti House, seriously. I joined their VIP membership and has been a fan all along. Their amazing pasta and set meals are the reasons keep pulling me back
Spaghetti House has a great marketing strategy and I'm always stunned by their creativity in packaging their promotion every season - there'll always be surprises awaiting for me to uncover during my visits! Same happened to my visit tonight.
There's a Spaghetti House near to my home. I always go there with my family, including tonight.
Another reason why I love Spaghetti House is that they have promotions from time to time. This time, it was discounts from BEA credit card.
Hence, we picked the BEA東亞信用卡二人套餐: 意國風味2人套餐 (HKD$258) + 小食拼盤
It was not long til we the salad and soups were ready to serve.
鮮蝦凱旋沙律煙肉配蒜茸多士: Since I was with my braces, I was unable to taste the garlic bread. As for the salad with shrimp and beacon, both my mum and I liked it. We were vegetable cravers on the first place so we thought it was quite a nice starter to begin our dinner. The dressing wasn't too heavy and thick. It was not a bad start!
粟米雞忌廉湯: I absolutely loved it! The soup was thick and creamy - with the ingredients of sweetcorn and chicken pieces added in the flavour. Perhaps this was originated from a canned, but it definitely reminded me of my childhood memories when I used to have Campbell
for every meal!
意大利菜湯: Quite disappointed..my dad and I did not like it as it was too watery comparing to the Cream of sweetcorn and chicken soup! The flavour was light. Comparing to the Italian vegetable soups I had elsewhere, this was quite a disappointment
小食拼盤: It was my second time ordering this snacks plate during my visit to Spaghetti House. I quite liked its combination as I liked the onion rings as well as the pork sausage. This dish was OK as we got a taste of everything - but only if the portion could be bigger..I quite appreciated its salad at the middle - to balance the meaty portion with vegetables - smart!
珍寶什錦薄餅 (厚): It did not take long for the pizza. For one thing I liked about Spaghetti House was that it had a well time management in serving dishes. So when I was just about to finish a plate, the next one was ready on the table. Perfect!
For this pizza, it was my third time trying it out and none of the visits disappointed me. I simply LOVE this pizza! It wasn't big (medium sized) but enough for my parents and I. I liked the fact that the cheese on the pizza just melted - so when the pizza just came out from the oven to our table, it was still freshly baked and pipping hot. When you had the slice on your hand and took an agressive bite, the cheese was able to mix with the thick crust and the ingredients to slowly dissolved on your mouth..providing the classic 'linkage' in between your mouth and the pizza (if you can imagine what i'm talking about..)
Personally I strongly recommended this!
乾番茄野菌天使麫: I always liked dried pasta. Comparing to wet ones like carbonara and bolognese, dried pasta offered an alternative choice for pasta lovers. The pasta was fried with herbs and dried tomatos before it was served. Therefore the customers were able to taste the heat and smell soonafter it was placed on the serving table.
One suggestion - the pasta tasted too moisturized - more frying please?
Cold Lemon Tea
Hot Lemon Tea
To wrap up the meal, we had cold and lemon tea for drinks. We did not feel like giving additional money for fancy drinks, so we sticked with coffee or tea. The cold lemon tea was quite nice - though it was quite a small cup but the syrup portion was just right (mind you I'm an addict in syrup when it comes to lemon tea). As for the hot lemon tea, it was extremly small with no filling of hot tea...the tea was quite strong (black tea perhaps?) I guessed the tea was better used for milk tea.
Overall, this meal was a super satisfying one! I always liked Spaghetti House - comfy setting, reasonable prices (with constant promotions), friendly staff, delicious pasta and pizzas..what more can you ask for during inflation period in Hong Kong? - Y
