Applegreen, Causeway Bay Hong Kong
I can’t believe it has taken me this long to go to Applegreen. It was on my list to go a year ago but never really got around to it. It’s a very casual restaurant, the food was definitely enjoyable and most importantly it is baby friendly!
I was catching up with a few of my favourite peeps, it took me 18 months to come back but I did say ‘I will be back’ and here I am! It was definitely a long overdue catch up and it was so lovely to see them again and I am looking forward to many more catch ups over wonderful meals.
The menu VAST, ranging from appetizers, flatbreads, salads, meats, spaghetti and many many more. We thought we would share a couple of dishes – started with the Asian Nachos – 6 pieces of crispy wontons, chicken, sweet sauce, mozzarella and roasted peanuts. Unfortunately I didn’t have any of this as it contained nuts but I was informed that it was delicious – very Asian though!
One of my favourites – portabello fries with black truffle cream dip. Unfortunately, I didn’t take a photo of this but we did order THREE servings of this. Large portabello fries which were lightly coated and then deep fried – OH MY! The black truffle cream dip was to die for!
We shared the salad diane – sliced chicken, rice noodles, silver almonds, iceberg lettuce and black pepper – again I didn’t have any of this due to the nuts, but it was a very generous serving, and I was informed that the salad was refreshing and fresh!
I opt for the grilled salmon with saffron sauce with slow cooked vegetables. The salmon was good crispy skin but a little overcooked I thought. I usually like my salmon medium rare, regardless it was still very enjoyable.
Dad opt for the special, frittata with mushrooms and a whole heaps of green – bit of an overkill! The frittata was good but nothing special I thought.
The soft tacos – 2 beef loin cubes, 2 deep fried halibut fillets, salsa verde looked good.
SK had the grilled sausage platter – chef’s selection of four sausage links, mashed potato and slow roasted garlic – it was a LARGE serving but it did look good! (Sorry forgot to take a photo, so you will have to trust me on this one!)
I really enjoyed my meal here, but I think it was the company that made it exceptional! I am looking forward to hanging out with you guys more! Definitely a child friendly restaurant!
