Great dinner with Great friends @ H One, IFC, Hong Kong

I originally wanted to go to Harlan’s as I have heard raving reviews. Unfortunately, Harlan’s have moved to TST, and we were too lazy to trek all the way there (it was a horrendous evening, thunderstorm and all!) So I suggested this place, H One, which is situated inside the IFC mall and a sister restaurant of Harlan’s and part of the JC Group.

This restaurant is very chic, very up market and has a magnificent view of Victoria Harbour. I love the high ceilings and the comfortable seating space, very spacious! The menu is quite extensive, ranging from pizzas to pastas to seafood. It took a while for us to decide what we wanted, but when the waiter suggested oysters, we all said ‘yes’!

We were given a selection of breads, ranging from focaccia, poppy seed, cheese bread, sour dough and plain.  The bread were fresh and was a great starter to a fantastic meal.

Our pre-entrée, oysters. Squeezed with a little bit of lemon, these slippery oysters were incredibly scrumptious.

Hubby and I thought we would share an entrée, slow cooked wild salmon, chopped organic egg, watercress and herring caviar. The salmon was cooked to perfection, it was tender and succulent, the egg creamy and the combination were absolutely delightful. The watercress and herring caviar were a great compliment!

From memory, S and J ordered the salad: warm goat cheese salad with sundried tomatoes, grilled zucchini tagliatelle and walnut oil. Unfortunately I didn’t take a photo of this nor had any. S and J did say that the salad was delicious and light.

J ordered the Scampi della Nuova Zelanda scottati with seasonal mix salad. I wish I had some of this, as it looked absolutely delicious!

S, J’s lovely husband who loves the bombers as much as Hubby ordered the oven-baked dover sole with prosecco, “taggia” olives and prezzemolo sauce, asparagus and potatoes. The dover sole was de-boned and also looked amazing! Unfortunately, I forgot to ask if I could take a photo of the de-boned dover sole as I was too engrossed in my meal.

I ordered the Iberian pork chop, ravioli filled with cotechino sausage and lentils, spring onion and green peppers. The pork chop was tender and succulent, and the cotechino sausage was creamy and mild in flavour. It was a great compliment to the pork chop.

Hubby had the USDA Certified Prime Beef fillet which was served with asparagus and roasted new potatoes. The beef was medium rare, it was tender; however I thought it was ok, nothing to rave about, and so did Hubby. My Iberian pork chop was definitely the better choice!

S had the warm melting chocolate cake with yogurt sorbert, and it oozed with chocolate which was deliciously sweet and chocolaty.

J and I both ordered soufflé. J ordered the Valrhona chocolate soufflé, served with chocolate sorbet and chocolate anglaise. (Sorry photo is a tad blurry, too much wine!)

I had the Raspberry soufflé, chocolate sorbet and bourbon vanilla anglaise. The raspberry soufflé was fluffy and sweet, the chocolate sorbet and bourbon vanilla anglaise were a great compliment.

Hubby had the classic tiramisu amaretto foam, and crunchy almond bar. The presentation was fantastic! However, it wasn’t the best tiramisu, in my opinion! For one, I am not a big fan of foam, so the amaretto foam didn’t do it for me. The tiramisu was too mushy for my liking, almost mousse like. I prefer my tiramisu more solid, like a cake than mousse. The crunchy almond bar was probably the best out of it all.

I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, however, Hubby’s was just ok I thought. Regardless, it was a great evening, with GREAT friends. Fantastic conversation and loads of laughter! We were the last group to leave, but mind you, we did start a tad late. Nevertheless, it was great catching up and we should definitely do it again! I have to admit, it wasn’t the cheapest meal but it was good! Hubby was a little shocked but he got over it quite quickly!
