    1. 初二吉祥!起初以為農曆新年可以好好休息,那知陪兩兄妹到處去玩,加上姐姐放假,竟還比平日更累... 當然這也是開心累,趁主子們午睡時,分享一下本週一在海港城內最美川菜 --- 映水芙蓉 的精緻成都團年飯吧~

      川菜是中國四大菜系之一,以麻、辣、鮮、香見稱。但成都菜與甜魔媽媽老鄉的重慶菜,卻有著微妙的分野:源自官府菜的成都菜,除了賣相精緻,最重要是香辣較溫和。由於成都有蓉城之稱,餐廳又正好坐落海運大廈OTE盡頭、坐享180度絕美海景,故取名「映水芙蓉」。

      映水芙蓉 佔地4,000呎,門前一道古董的雕花木門,配上四川竹林景致;加上店內以紅、黑、啡為主調,門前綴以名師親手製造的蜀繡,說它是全港最美川菜館,一點不為過。

      特別欣賞餐廳內寬落的擺位,再加上無論是日或夜、都同樣優美迷人的維多利亞海景,在這裡用餐,真是無與倫比的美好體驗~點菜後,甜魔媽媽更到外邊露台逛了一圈,環境真的美得令人心神俱醉!

      在這絕美的環境下用餐,根本酒不醉人人自醉;再來一杯泡沫細膩的香檳來啟動團年飯,更加樂不思蜀了!

       

      IMG_7368.jpg

       

      首先是 核桃沙律釀小番茄 ($88),超清甜的小番茄中間,巧妙釀上香甜的核桃,集清新、健康、多汁、香脆於一身,讓人喜歡不得了,值得推介!

       

      IMG_7367.jpg

       

      另一款清新前吃是 崇州沖沖卷 ($88),這是四川崇州地區、一款曾失傳的民間小吃,內容有點似越式米紙卷,但用的全是蔬菜,大廚利用份子料理的方法,將芥末做成小珠粒,吃有著刺激口感,甚至會沖(嗆)鼻,故叫沖沖卷,十分有趣。

       

      IMG_7366.jpg

       

      不愛瓜菜的甜魔媽媽,十分推介這 千絲西葫蘆 ($68);大廚將翠玉瓜切片再起絲,但兩邊並未切斷,來扭出富有藝術感的形狀;上檯後加上醬汁再弄散「麵絲」,就可以吃到清鮮動人的滋味,絕對值得一試。

       

      IMG_7370.jpg

       

      IMG_7374.jpg

       

      另一款必吃涼菜是 敲糖棒棒雞 ($168),以四川傳統菜式棒棒雞,加入北京「吹糖」技藝,超薄透光的糖皮球中,滿是香辣紅油,輕敲即碎(按此收看影片),其後辣中帶甜的滋味盡入雞件中,味道及層次都很豐富,非常好吃!

       

      IMG_7379.jpg

       

      IMG_7381.jpg

       

      接著是 蓉城雞豆花 ($88),一款已有百多年歷史的傳統川菜。湯底以雞、豬骨、鴿等熬煮足十多小時,將多重過濾後清甜順滑。湯上滑如豆花的其實是雞肉茸,大廚用刀背將雞胸肉剁成茸後,用牙籤細心挑走筋位,令其口感嫩滑又不失鮮味,心思與手工可媲美文思豆腐羹呢!

       

      IMG_7386.jpg

      來到主菜,一定要試用上四川瀘沽湖特產 ─ 紅米及湖蝦的 招牌蝦膏泡瀘沽湖紅米飯 ($198)。紅米屬於野生品種,短身而帶嚼勁、口感很佳,配上以烤過的蝦、蝦膏等熬製十多個小時的金黃湯底,湯鮮味濃,無論熱度、鮮味及飽肚度都是滿分!

       

      IMG_7390.JPG

       

      IMG_7393.jpg

       

      最後還有 大珠小珠落玉盤 ($198),這款富詩情畫意的菜式其實由青豆及茨實組成,味道清鮮、口感不俗,又有健脾除濕、固腎益精的功效,不妨多吃~

       

      IMG_7400.jpg

       

      去到甜品環節,首先品嚐了雲川一帶的傳統小吃 ─ 紅糖糍粑 ($68),以糯米為主、外香脆內綿軟柔韌的糍粑有吉利之意,團年/開年正好要吃上一件!

       

      IMG_7406.jpg

       

      壓軸還有熱食的 椰汁素燕 ($68),飾演素燕的,其實是冬瓜絲,拌以香濃椰汁後,口感與珍多冰中的粉條甚為相似,香甜不膩,好一款有趣的糖水!

       

      IMG_7409.jpg

       

      由於這間川菜太吸引了,為食老公也已另外組團與辣友去了拜訪,還拍了片;其實沒有煙花的維港,也一樣很美很美,大家同意嗎?

      There are cocktails, craft beers, fresh fruit juices and teapigs’ teas on the drink menu. The grapefruit juice is super fresh and tangy; whereas the popcorn tea tastes like Japanese genmaicha.

      The food menu includes many health options offering protein bowls, low carb and high fibre cauliflower pizzas and burgers; while we opt for a comparatively indulging roasted pork knuckle which is juicy, meaty, served with smoky barbecue sauce and roasted potato wedges.

      Before golf, we finish off with a FITYO low calories and high protein frozen yogurt which carries only 150 calories and 15g of protein per 100g. There are original vanilla flavor, chocolate flavor and Summer Berry is always my top choice among all!!!

    3. okra-hong-kong-9-150x150.jpg

      Okra has been in Hong Kong for two years now and, despite living only a few minutes away, I only just dined there for a much-anticipated feast. Over the past years, I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about Okra Hong Kong, so my expectations were admittedly quite high. I won’t beat around the bush: every dish that I tried was incredibly unique and delicious, and the atmosphere was cozy yet upbeat; something that most restaurants struggle to provide. If you’re looking for a different dining experience in Hong Kong, I would highly recommend heading to Okra.

      Vibe at Okra Hong Kong

      The dining space at Okra is small so it’s best to go with only one or two other people. There is seating around the bar/kitchen, which I would recommend trying to snag, and a few tables for two if you’re looking for something a bit more intimate. The music, which is curated by Okra’s chef-owner Max Levy, is a fitting mix of Dead Kennedies, The Misfits, and the like. I also loved the massive risque mural adorned on the wall inside. As the night continued, conversations grew louder, the sake continued flowing, and the vibe kept getting better.

      Sake

      Okra Hong Kong has a great sake list that is broken down into a few different tasting notes. We opted for the hilariously named (although appropriate given that 2017 was the year of the rooster) “The Cock” Junmai Ginjo (HK$108). Aside from the slightly acidic and refreshing tasting points of this sake, I liked that it was made in collaboration with Tsui Hark specifically for Okra.

      Starters

      We began with the popular Nigari Sai Farmhouse Tofu (HK$98) with Okra’s handmade Pigeon Sauce. The handmade tofu was silky smooth and paired beautifully with the fresh cherry tomatoes. Although this is not a dish I would typically order, the Goose Blood Toast was on the specials board (sorry, can’t remember how much it was!) and I was curious to try it. The goose blood was somewhat similar to a pate and was full of flavor. We also tried the Salt Tomato (HK$88), which was on the specials board. Despite the simplicity of the dish, this was one of the best tomatoes I’ve had in ages (in case you weren’t aware, Hong Kong is not known for its produce).

      Mains

      Moving onto the mains, we began with the Dry Aged Beef Tongue (HK$168) from the specials board. I wasn’t entirely sold, given that I’ve never tried tongue before, but I have to admit it was really tasty. The thick pieces of cured meat were absolute perfection and I had to stop myself from devouring the entire plate. Another really interesting dish was the Dry Aged Baby Tuna (HK$118), also from the specials board. Dry aging fish heightens the taste, giving it that umami flavor everyone raves about. Despite living in Asia for 6.5 years, I had yet to try eel (I know, it’s shameful), so we decided to order the Unabi Fun (HK$188) – eel on crispy sushi rice. The eel had a delicious smokey flavor and the rice around the clay pot was perfectly crispy.

      Dessert

      We finished our meal with the Uji Matcha Cookie Boy (HK$76) – a roasted green tea and red bean cookie with smoked cream and lemon salt. Although I liked the overall flavor of the cookie, I wish the outside was crispier.

      Verdict

      From the cozy yet lively atmosphere to the delicious pours of sake, and incredibly unique and refreshing dishes on the menu, I loved everything about Okra Hong Kong. If you’re tired of the same restaurants in the city and are looking for something different, you need to try Okra. Perfect for a date night or an intimate catch up with a friend, the setting compliments the food flawlessly and I can’t wait to go back and slowly work my way through the rest of the menu.
