Imasa

Imasa situated comfortably in The Peninsula has been a staple of Japanese fine dining. So one lunch we set out to try it….my company decided to let me choose…and since I was the only one who haven’t tried it yet- that’s where we went! Like I said situated next to The Peninsula’s resident Chinese fine dining restaurant: Spring Moon; Imasa was relatively empty when we first arrived. :) They have an extensive menu and there is a lot of choices and I went with their lunch menu sets! (During dinner is their endless Japanese buffet option!)

Uni Tempura/Shisho: We ordered these babies!! And they were pretty awesome, but I still prefer uni in its purest form! It was pretty good though. Very nice, hot, crispy and crunchy!

Wagyu Beef Steak Don Lunch Set! Yummy-ness <3 Mushroom stir-fry, wagyu beef steak, egg custard (in the blue bowl), Japanese seafood teapot soup, and a bowl of fragrant fried rice.

The wagyu beef was steak strips were sooooo heavenly. Buttery, milky soft and it really did melt in your mouth. The fried rice was the perfect counterpart! And very much needed to cut in with the fattiness of the steak pieces.

Yuzu Sorbet, it was nice, light and fresh.

R & B Research Bakery

R & B actually stands for Research Bakery and this eatery aims to serve simple Californian cuisine (with a slight twist). Its from the same people that brought you the Applegreen chain. And in the center of Tsim Sha Tsui- this eatery is very different from its other counterparts. It’s walk in only, and I loveeee the floor to ceiling windows that gush in pouring sunlight into the room. The only thing I don’t like? Well…how close I’m sitting to the other tables. With rows of tables aligned neatly next to each other and people lining in at the door- the feeling was slightly uneasy (like a fish in a aquarium feel to it). Other than that….it makes for a great brunch spot!

I love Mason jars…and even that its  endless refills. I got Lemonade $36 (but of course- after gulping down the entire drink- my bladder only had room for a bit of my second refill!)

Roasted Beet Salad, Quinoa, Mozzarella, Yuzu Honey $58 This roasted beet salad was nice, light and fresh and a really nice starter. I loved the creamy mozzarella and quinoa added into this dish! Great salad.

Uni Gnocchi: Sea Urchin, Shallot, Fresh Cream $88. This was not what I was expecting…nothing too bad, but definitely didn’t taste like sea urchin! But it was interesting.

Buttermilk Fried Chicken Benedict, egg, biscuit, buffalo hollandaise $108. This was GREAT! Super yummy and hot off the grill. The fried chicken skin was perfectly crunchy and crisp while being moist and juicy on the inside. The egg was nice and runny and I really liked the buttermilk biscuit!! YUM.

Chicken Nuggets: lemon, pepper, garlic $62. We finally added the nuggets…which were nothing like what I was expecting!! SOOO much better than I thought. This golden crunchy little nuggets were delightful in every bite. I even dare to say it tasted….healthy. Also…I kept eyeing this plateful of shoestring fries on the next table…Those looked good!!! Overall, its an nice little brunch spot- but still needs a little changing of the menu!

Bread n Butter Cafe

Bread n Butter is a fashion brand I sometimes wear myself. But did you know the newly renovated Police Married Quarters (PMQ) now has a…Bread n Butter Cafe (Showcase by Bread n Butter)?! The decor is minimal, girly and very pretty. It’s filled with soft colours, and lots of white garden furnitures, white plush chairs and marbled tables. The space is small but simple…and so is the menu! Their main thing are the crepes which are light and fluffy as well as some simple salads and pastas! So one afternoon three girls decided to lunch together!

IMG_4693

Ta Da! So pretty :) You can order sweet or savoury crepes. We all opted for the salty ones!

IMG_4694

Sis got the Crepe Bolognese $98 (which was what I originally wanted to get)…Meat sauce, cheese and egg…I had a bite! It’s not extraordinary- but something nice, light and simple.

IMG_4695

Char got the Crepe Florentine $98 Smoked Salmon, Cheese, Egg and Spinach! Check out THE9thMUSE everyone!!! IMG_4697

I opted for the Crepe Complete $88 filled with ham, cheese, egg and spinach…again, it was nothing too spectacular…but I really liked how they perfected the soft runny egg and loved the crunchy-ness of the crepe! :)

IMG_4700

And we were surprised with dessert from Viv…go check out Piece of Cake!!!! Delicious salted caramel brownies!!! THANK YOU!
