Ecriture – Hong Kong
We had a 6-course set menu. The seats are very comfy and the round tables are small but the food fits perfectly on the table.
The restaurant Ecriture is in the 26th floor of the Queen H building in Central. The walls are painted with golden cracks.
There are only a few tables and they are spread out through the restaurant.
We had a 6-course set menu. The seats are very compfy and the round tables are small but the food fits perfectly on the table.
The first dish was some homemade seaweed bread and another delicious soft bread. The bread was served with some caviar and sea urchin. We also had some ham which was super tasty and some cuttle fish which was a bit too salty for my taste.
The next dish was a sugar pea tartare with sea snails and some pickled cucumber.
The third dish was an egg that looked like an avocado because it was covered in a green sauce. When I touched the egg, it was wobbly and once I cut it open liquid egg yolk poured out. The egg was served with green vegetables and asparagus.
The fourth dish was tiny pasta called agnolotti filled with ricotta and spinach and served in a clear parsley root soup called consommé.
The main dish was a beautiful roasted leg of lamb with potato gratin. I really enjoyed the lamb and had a second serving!
As dessert we had a flan, kouign aman (baked pastry), melon and the amazing chocolate caramel tart which was my favourite dessert!
The chef Maxime Gilbert and his team were so nice to sign the menu for me.
Visiting Ecriture was a wonderful experience.
That's all my mini-micheing for today.
