Oystermine in Kowloon City has been making a name for itself serving hearty pasta and risottos, seafood and its speciality (the name says it all) oysters!! Kowloon City has tons of good food but I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. Oystermine was opened by TVB star Bosco Wong, his first restaurant establishment and successfully satisfying diners since its opening in November 2013.
We started with a fresh platter of Canadian Sea Urchin. It comes with lots of cucumbers and seaweed. I devoured it quickly! The uni was nice and fresh- similar to the style of Oyster C in North Point.
OYSTERSS!! We ended up ordering 6 at first and then 2 more from their daily oysters menu. There’s 2 Fleur Des Eaux, 2 Papin Poget, and 2 Schaller. All ranging from $52 to $66 per piece. We asked for the creamier and sweet flavored ones. They were pretty darn delicious.
2 more!! Mmmm….look at these beauties.
Freshly toasted garlic bread...yummy
These fries were freakin’ fantastic. It comes with a truffle oil sauce which is conveniently tucked inside the soft boiled egg. The truffle oil was sooo yummy and the fries were perfectly crunchy and crispy on the outside and soft and hot on the inside.
Freakin’ fantastic french fries. LOVE LOVE LOVE. A close up of these pretty carblicious fries.
Last but not least was the signature squid ink risotto with sea urchin and Hokkaido scallop $188. This was a hot, hearty, creamy portion of risotto rice topped off with a generous portion of sea urchin and Hokkaido scallops. We washed it all down with some white wine and Bloody Mary’s. The staff and service were on point- constantly smiling, being attentive and just having great service. The place got packed on a Friday night- so make sure you call in and reserve a seat. 🙂
