Cheese Heaven in Caprice Bar

Cheese Heaven…!!!!! I’m not joking about this place. Before I delve more into Caprice Bar…let me tell you a little bit about its neighbour/partner? I’m sure for most of us living in Hong Kong, we’ve all heard about the luxe and extravagantly grand, french fine dining establishment: Caprice….well a few brisk steps over is Caprice Bar. A safe haven offering delicious milky wines, drinks and cheese (along with other bar/entrees).

Beautiful view! We went into the luxe lounge and sat right in front of the giant floor to ceiling windows. :)

Two glasses of Gevrey Chambertin V.V. Dom. Geantet Pansiot 2009 (Pinot Noir). $240/glass. This went down our throats like milk…soooo good!

Drink up and soak up the sunshine...and wine ;)

Pick your bread! I really liked the hearty, crunchy baguette bread along with the delicious salty and milky butter.

‘A bit of Everything’ Cheese platter. $370. So, I heard to try out this cheese platter and I was absolutely delighted with how much beauty, yumminess and cheesiness this platter had! But my favourite was their specialty..the Comte Cheese…More about that a bit later!

BEAUTIFUL! <3

Such pretty-ness, I cant seem to get enough!

Two more Bloody Mary’s for me!! I’m a big fan of this spicy cocktail that packs a punch….yummy! :D Favourite cocktail…or a Gin & Tonic.

Caprice Bar was soooo good…I went back again another early evening….

But this time, I only had the Comte platter……Aged Comte (aged 4 years) Cheese Platter. $320. A must try for all the cheese fans! Its amazingly good. And, theres a characteristic crunch of lactic acid crystals thats soooo awesome! LOVE this! You just have to try it for yourself.

Cocotte

Cocotte is one of the newest French restaurants to open up. I’ve heard mixed reviews about this place…so during one HK holiday…we decided to go check it out for lunch. I thought the lunch price was pretty reasonable and I liked the space! I didn’t go for dinner though, which is what I usually like to write about…since I get to eat and try more of the food! ;)

IMG_3308

What do you fancy for lunch? We both went for the EXPRESS LUNCH....no desserts.IMG_3313

Bread for the table.

IMG_3315

I went with the cold soup...gazpacho medley, with lots of veggies. I loved the strong tomato fragrance and refreshing aftertaste!

IMG_3316

Steak tartare with truffle egg yolk and sour dough croute..which came out a bit questionable. The colour was a bit brown….but after reassuring us that this would be normal….I devoured a bite or two and it really was pretty darn tasty! Especially that secret sauce in that jar. Delicious!

IMG_3319

I ordered the codfish mediterranean style with spiced ginger polenta, ratatouille, and red beet reduction as my main. The presentation was really beautiful, but as I tasted the codfish…it was really overly salty,…to the point that the ginger polenta (which has a soft, mild taste to it) became the only thing I really liked about this dish. :/

IMG_3321

The steak frites…the fries were really tasty, along with that mustard sauce but the steak itself was a bit overcooked…I think overall the food still needs a bit of improvement but the service, atmosphere was really good. Worth a try??! I think so…just hope next time the mains would be better…or maybe I just ordered wrong….

Bistro Du Vin

Bistro Du Vin is the newest establishment from the same group as the easy going Italian eateries- Piccolo’s as well as the previous French fine dining restaurant- Cepage on Star Street (now…Beef & Liberty (post)). AND…La Port Parfume, which I recently went to for girls night! Hehehe…..okay, back to this place. So from the title of the post, I think you can tell: Bistro Du Vin offers….you guessed it: comfortable French cuisine! :) So, lets see how the food is…shall we!?

IMG_8565

OH MY!!!! Food….I’m ready for ya! ;)

IMG_8549

Love the decor of this place!! We got there early….so there weren’t anyone else there yet! They’re really busy, so like their sister establishment La Port Parfume, they also suggest you go in to dine at their slots at either 6pm or 8pm….just as a warning.

IMG_8552

Bread came out first! I loved the bistro feel of this restaurant.

IMG_8553

Red wine...to go with our dinner!

IMG_8558

Home salted brandadesoft egg, espelette hollandaise $100. SOOOOOOOOO good. This was positively my favourite dish. The creamy egg yolk…and the minced home salted brandade fish. WOW. It blew my mind, expectations, and taste buds. Nice job!!

IMG_8559

Mashed boiled potatoes…to go with…..

IMG_8561

Slow Cooked Lamb Shank, Tomatoes & Onions $200. I really enjoyed this saucy braised lamb shank. The lamb meat practically rips away so easily. Perfectly fatty, flavourful (a bit on the saltier side) and juicy. Dip a little bread and the potatoes to go along with the sauce and you are good to go.

IMG_8564

Crispy Suckling Pig Confit, Choucroute (Leg) $230 ...I love suckling pig. The traditional Chinese styled suckling pigs are my favourite. But this crispy pig skin and tender pig meat did the job quite nicely. Very meaty, juicy and succulent.

IMG_8568

Grand Marnier Souffle, Vanilla Ice Cream (20 mins) $75. This would be my least favourite. At this point we were asked to move to Piccolos (their other sister restaurant) next door, because it was 830pm….so away we moved…to finish our dessert. The souffle was not what I expected. The souffle tasted thicker than a sponge cake…which I didn’t really like.

IMG_8569

Fresh Baked Madeleine, Chocolate Mousse (15 mins) $70 The madeleines were quite good. Hearty, and thick, add a dallop of the chocolate mousse and it makes for a nice sweet ending.
