Belon in Soho has been one of the buzziest places to open up last year and I can not believe that I still didn’t go try it…until now. Last week I called and they finally had an available booking. My good friend Andrew was visiting HK again and I wanted to take him around. 🙂 We were initially going to go there to have dinner but decided to just go for our first stop (so I think I still need to go back for a proper full meal.) Second stop was Cassio for a late dinner and more drinks- love that place!
Fire roasted leeks with mussels and noilly prat, HK$198. The plating was incredibly beautiful and refined. It came out piping hot. The dish itself was delicious but with really small portions. (Two mussels each but that sauce tho….ah mazing!) The leeks were nicely drenched in the savory and milky sauce.
I really enjoyed the starter. These tiny cheesy cream puffs filled with a milky comte cheese center was crazy good. Wow. Just wow. You need to eat these babies up. I wish there was an option to buy and take them home. They should make this into a dish! So good.
Braised endives with green apple and raw cream, HK$168. This was recommended to us but I found it was just alright. Really tiny portion for the amount you pay. Two tiny handfuls each and this was all gone. :/
Terrific service, fun vibe and loved the decor of this place. Think we ordered this time around. I’ll come back in a group to try out the mains still (the famous chicken is for sharing- and was recommended not to share for the 2 of us this time around!)
Lots of <3, Jess
