The spagetti entree was simply strange. From the first bite to the last. Absolutely strange. Upon reflection, I think that it was the powerful citrus taste it had -- strongly reminiscent of the cham-pei (orange peels) flavouring given to local desserts (like Hong Dao Sha). The cheese was very well appointed, and even flavourful, but the citrus orange-like taste of the meat sauce was a strongly distracting mystry to my taste buds. This is not to indicate it is bad --it is not. But it did catch me unaware (nowhere is there an indicate the sauce would be mysteriously citric --and pasta sauces are traditionally NOT so).
It was a good sized dish; proper proportions. But that sauce.....will keep me forever wondering.....as it was so unexpected and strangely refreshing of the palate
tea with milk
with each bite.
The tea was quite nice. And I think that was suprising also --given that it was bagged. But upon asking for milk, the waitress went to the (openish) kitchen and had some milk steamed for me. Quite a nice touch, actually.
The cake was 'ration-sized'. Tasty, but rather bland without any other tastes to compliment. Since I only paid another $8 for the cake, I felt it an appropriate size. But, this is still the tiniest a-la-carte cake slice in HK for me so far. More like a petite-fours size than a cake size.
