After hiking the Dragon's Back, we stopped at Eric's Kitchen. There're some other restaurants around, but none of them are situated on the beach like Eric's. It was kinda busy but we did manage to secure a table (if this had been in the summer, I don't think that would've been possible). The food here isn't great, but it isn't horrible and you can't beat the atmosphere.The food here is very Hong Kong. Take the cheeseburger, for instance. It had an overseasoned patty that wasn't really meaty and "whole," but rather was crumbling while I ate it. A burger shouldn't crumble, but in HK, burgers regularly crumble. And there was way too much salt in it. I won't say "not recommended," because, well, what else are you gonna get? But this isn't all that great. OK, C-.As a side note, the burger comes with fries. The fries (like the next two dishes below) are the frozen variety. However, frozen does not mean bad, and often frozen, partially pre-cooked fries are better than poorly-prepared, poorly-cooked fresh fries. I thought these ones were fine. OK, C+How do you ruin deep-fried dumplings? The answer is that you don't, it's impossible. However, you can make sub-par deep-fried dumplings, and Eric's does. Not as crispy as they should be and not all that flavorful in the filling. OK, CThe spring rolls were the best thing we got. Minor complaint: they could have profited from a greater veggie-to-wrapper ratio. Good, B+As I said, the food here is very Hong Kong. They have that terrible HK cracker pizza ("thin crust" they say, "yeah right" I say). They have those flat triangle "samosas" filled with curry paste. The beers are pretty cheap, they've got Coronas with lime wedges, and nothing beats sitting out by the water. Would I eat here again? Yes. Would I have high expectations about it? No. All-in-all, rather good for what it is. B continue reading

從土地灣出發,完成9.5公里港島徑第八段,終點站便是大浪灣。經過大半日路程,下山時份已近黃昏,體力消耗亦是要搵個地方歇一歇。附近一帶有幾間士多,都曾經試過,都是一般港式的餐蛋麵,當你體力勞動完後,什麼都會是好食的於是今次便試了這間面向無敵大海景,比較有西式的休閒感覺,事實上都有很多外國人光顧。店內賣的都是薄餅、薯條、雞翼、三文治等一般小食,當然還有雙併麵啦!眼看這裡各樣小食份量都不少,再加上我們出發前已到安利kill了一碗撈粗加多士,所以在不太餓的情況下,我們只點了炸薯餅,說穿了其實只是厚切連皮薯條!薯餅外面炸得夠脆口,可惜內裡很乾,沒有薯味,好明顯不是用新鮮薯仔炸,用的是預切冷藏的薯餅,扣分! continue reading
