St Betty, Central, Hong Kong

I have heard wonderful things about St Betty – the dinner, the brunch and even the afternoon tea. St Betty can be found in IFC, the restaurant has a wonderful view of the harbour and the ambiance is very relaxed. The chef behind St Betty is Shane Osborne, who has been in the industry for 20 years, grew up in Australia and moved to the UK when he was 22 years old where he spent most of his time before moving to Hong Kong.

The menu at St Betty has an Asian influence and everything on the menu sounded absolutely wonderful. We started with complimentary fresh bread and creamy butter, it was served warm and although the exterior is a little too crunchy for my liking, the inside was soft and fluffy.

‘The Mother’ and I were on our date night and thought we would share an entrée, olive oil poached petuna sea trout, pickled chayote, quinoa and mustard dressing (HKD188). It was such a pretty dish. The petuna sea trout was cooked beautifully, the quail egg I absolutely loved and the mustard dressing was a nice touch.

For mains, I couldn’t go past the honey and soy-glazed short rib of beef, green mango, onion and lime (HKD318). It wasn’t what I expected, as I was hoping to see a large bone attached to my beef. Instead a relatively decent slab of beef, which was tender and cooked medium rare, just the way I like it. The green mango was an excellent a complement.

‘The Mother’ opt for Australian freshwater yabbies with crisp pork belly, sweet garlic puree, pine nuts and balsamic (HKD288). This was another wonderful dish, the yabbies, the tender crispy pork belly – it was absolutely delightful.

For dessert, we shared the passion fruit soufflé, butterscotch ice cream and caramel sauce (HKD108) – it had me at butterscotch ice cream. The soufflé was light, airy and fluffy. I absolutely LOVED the butterscotch ice cream, however, was a little disappointed that there weren’t more of it!

I have to say that that my meal at St Betty was absolutely delicious. The service was nice and not over the top and the quality of produce was excellent. I really enjoyed all our meals, it’s not very often that I like 3 out of 3 meals. I am looking forward to going back on Sunday for the Sunday roast! Judging from the pictures I have seen online, we are in for a treat!
