Aberdeen Street, Soho, Hong Kong
Aberdeen Street is located in Soho, just below Caine Road and the restaurant is a unique combination of bar and restaurant. It has quite a relaxing atmosphere and I love the outdoor terrace area as it is absolutely relaxing and perfect for a hot summer day with a glass of wine or beer. The menu is vast and a good one at that, it took us a while to decide what we wanted.
Whilst deciding what we all want to eat, we started with the vegetarian croquette (HKD 58) – rice bowl with carrots and mushrooms for the kids. Crispy exterior, the vegetarian croquettes were delicious and even Dragon managed to eat two on her own.
The garlic shrimp (HKD58) were panfried with garlic and white wine and were plump and juicy
We also had the veggie touch (HKD248) to share – vegetarian samosa, spring roll, mini veggie burger, vegetarian croquette, garden bouquet, beetroot and pumpkin frites. The cheese spring rolls were indeed cheesy and not too oily. I didn’t have any of the veggie burger but was told that it was delicious. The beetroot and pumpkin frites were not what I expected though, I was hoping for thin slices of pumpkin fried, but it was slightly over battered making it a little too chewy.
I opt for ‘just a disaster’ (HKD 148) – omelet with ham, cheese, mushroom, provencal tomatoes, sausage, sautéed potatoes and salad. The sausage Dragon demolished, so I assume it was good! ha! The omelet was light and fluffy.
‘The Mother’ couldn’t go past the tenderloin (HKD228) which was served with sautéed vegetables and sautéed potatoes. The beef was cooked to perfection and it was incredibly tender and absolutely delicious. I definitely had food envy!
J had the pan-fried salmon, sautéed vegetables, basmati rice and caper, saffron and cream sauce (HKD178). I didn’t have any of this but she did say it was good and the salmon wasn’t over cooked.
The salad menu is extensive and everything sounded wonderful. S had the staunton street (HKD158) salad – avocado, asparagus, prawns, egg sunny side up, mushroom, soya and basmati rice. It looked divine and S did say it was excellent. Everything was fresh and he demolished everything!
Service was friendly and polite, definitely would be keen to come back to eat the salad – wonder if they do take away as it would be great to have it for lunch!
