今天於hong kong peninsula hotel酒店的set lunch，I gave up their new ladies leisure lunch $328 but then chose the 三道菜午餐。
I was free early未夠eleven thirty，but突然的一場huge rain made me arrive their entrance late at twelve thirty。
it was a 高高的水晶燈 in the middle of the beautiful and relaxing dining hall，and the manager leaded me to a two-chair seat nearest to the entrance, which I mean also---exit。I knew, it was my mistake not booking for a seat。
He asked immediately, if I want some wine or not, as it was included in the set lunch, and the choices are rose wine, red and white wine.
I didn’t want any wine today, so I ordered grapefruit juice, but he then recommended me to mix in some orange juice to sweeten my juice. Ok then, as what you say. I didn’t want to bargain on that tiny matter, but then it proved a mistake again
as my juice turned out not able to cheer up my appetite.
First of all, they provided two choices of 牛油, which i certainly love that softer and unsalted one.
There were four choices of 麵包, and they were salty bacon and onion cubes牛角酥、plain wheat flour白法包及red berry, raisin and walnut scone shaped 麥包，也有Irish beer soda 包。
all breads are not 熱 at all，Irish soda bread was made into a large roll and then cut into thick slices, its upper外層very脆，而內餡grey 麵包 part入口軟綿綿。
煙肉洋蔥 croissant had a very delicious 豬肉香，quality of bacon chosen 着實不錯, caramelized onion besides it 也畫龍點睛, made this bread so different from those CHA SHIU BAO in chinese restaurant。
頭盤我點了four roasted露筍在底，上面放上了gratinated morels菌碎and tasted very alike 開胃蛋黃荷蘭汁的lemon sabayon, but appeared to be thicker and creamier。
morels菌濃郁，加上mixed in chopped蒜頭, and some kind of marinated vegetables ( chinese style MUI CHOY ), that layer on top of asparagus was surprisingly good 。
Salt was clearly seen on top of the four heads of asparagus, and the whole appetizer was surrounded by a circle of light brown泡沬，topped with three thick slice of hard 巴馬山芝士, it was, I thought 非常oily的一道菜,
as when I enjoyed the whole dish, there was super large amount of oil left on the plate。
the whole meal told me the reason they were not able to get the three stars...
