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! 😉

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

Bread for the table.

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

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!

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. :/

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….
