Since opening in 1953, French restaurant Gaddi’s in The Peninsula Hong Kong has been touted as one of the first fine dining French restaurants in the East. The restaurant is known for it’s opulent dining room and exquisite French dishes. Dark woods, sweeping white podiums and grand chandeliers surround the room. Gaddi’s has a long history of winning accolades, being awarded Michelins and stealing hearts of their diners. Thank you Carrie for arranging this lunch tasting for my jie and me. 🙂 It was my first time finally eating at Gaddi’s and it did not disappoint.
I arrived a little before 12pm and was seated immediately.
The service was ah-mazing. The waiter immediately helped me get seated and asked if I would like a glass of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs champagne. I happily accepted. 🙂
This homemade pastry was yummy. The outer crust was crunch-tastic. I ended up having 2 pieces. So much for saving my stomach for the rest of the food.
The amuse bouche selection.
Our cold appetizer came out first, the lobster in jelly with marjoram heirloom tomatoes, and caviar, HK$680.
Look how pretty that is. The lobster meat was sweet and plump and went great with the salty and rich caviar packed inside.
For our main we picked the roasted cod with girolle mushrooms bouillabaisse-style and mini cod fritters, HK$650 and it was so fresh. The cod fish was tender, lean and soft.
I also ordered myself a glass of iced black coffee. 🙂 #coffeeislife
Last but not least was this refreshing and citrusy lemon dessert!
Petit fours to end the lunch!
Thanks Carrie once again for such a delicious lunch tasting! 🙂 Miss you jie.
