CUCINA - Semi Lunch Buffet

Semi lunch buffet with Mom and Sister
Mommy took a dayoff today with me and baby Enik. As a Marco polo dining member, we want to use up all the dining coupons before the expiry date, so we came here to CUCINA again for a semi buffet lunch. They serve only semi buffet and by adding 30HKD, you can enjoy one of their daily main dishes. 
It is a great place to visit because they have oyster bar, assorted cheeses and amazing desserts with Mövenpick ice cream! Nom nom :) 

Bread with basil pesto

Oysters with cocktail sauce

Main dish: Pan fried sea bass with clams and celery puree

Cream cone
Newyork cheesecake

Tiramisu cups

清真牛肉館 - Lunch

Lunch with Dad and Mom
I have been craving to come here and try their famous beef pan fried cakes. Other than beef, they are also famous for their lamb and curries. 
For this Sunday lunch, my family came here and ordered some dim sums and noodles. The most impressive dish has to be the beef filled pan fried cake, with juicy fillings and if you barely gave a first bite, the juice would accidentally spilled on the one next to you. So be careful!

Applegreen - Brunch Set

Brunch with Mom
Sunday, before typhoon "sky rabbit" arrive Hong Kong, I decided to have some light food with Mom. Applegreen has newly opened at Kowloon City Mall, so we went here knowing that they serve brunch sets every weekend. Since I wanted something light, so we ordered a self-selection salad and a brunch set. 
The food size is unexpectedly large and so filling. I highly recommend their salad combinations! 

Egg in the hole, sausage, honey ham, potato chips with fruit bowl

Salad of your choice: 
Romanian lettuce, avocado, caramelized water chestnuts, grilled zucchini, smoked salmon, crispy wonton and honey mustard dressing

Three on Canton - Dinner Buffet

Happy Moon Festival dinner with Family
This is our first year celebrating the Mid Autumn Festival with our Baby boy Enik (my nephew). It is also my mom's old calendar birthday. We booked a table one month in advance to celebrate this wonderful and memorable family day. 
The restaurant is rated as one of the best one among the three sister's cafes (Cafe Marco, add@Prince and Three on Canton). Today, it is surprising that they offered 3 kinds of fresh oysters from 3 different countries, also with foie gras as well as new Mövenpick ice cream flavor -  Banana!!!
There are also different choices of cheese, with detailed descriptions explaining either if it is made of goat or cow milk, a kind of Swiss or brie etc. You can also find gnocchi at the pasta stations and laksa at the Cantonese noodle bar. 
If you want good seafood, I would have to disappoint you for a while since theirs aren't as good as those from the Market. But anyway, I hope you give here a try as they will always make new food such as Beef Wellington and Double boiled soup.

Lei Garden 利苑 - Set Dinner

Dinner gathering with Family and friends
A night, after a wonderful university black Friday, my family and I booked a table at Lei Garden to meet up friends (Uncle Fook and his wife) from Macau. We ordered a dinner set for four, added dishes of braised eel and egg puff. The dinner was spectacular and even though we had already expected for high quality food, their services were also polite and impressive. In our case, we asked to change the original chicken soup porridge into their famous lobster bisque base, and they had mistakenly given us back the chicken soup one. We immediately informed the waitress who were responsible for it and she promised to change us a new pot of porridge. (Yay for an extra-dish-tasting and photo-taking!)
Additionally, as our set menu is only for four persons and we were actually five altogether, she gave us an extra bowl of red bean sweet soup (with many lotus seeds) to end up this wonderful dinner.
I am hoping to have a chance for their sago pudding (栗子茸西米焗布甸) next time.

Leaving school at around 19:30, realizing how comfy it was to stay at school with all the quietness and dim lighting. I walked along the pathway down to West point, where my mom was waiting to have dinner with me.
