Westwood Carvery, Lan Kwai Fong, Central
I have walked past this place many times, and have seen this cute little restaurant many times whilst queuing up for my favourite ramen place in Hong Kong on Wo On Lane. This place has always intrigued me, and finally one lunch time I suggested this place after sitting around fiddling out thumbs trying to decide where to eat.
The menu is limited, they do offer set lunches for diners starting from HKD98 to HKD148, which comprise of soup of the day to start, followed by either their prime rib sandwich, shrimp scampi or pan fried sea bass. They also have a la carte – salads, pastas, sandwiches, pork ribs and many more. I didn’t know at the time that their roasted prime rib sandwich is their signature dish!
We all started with the mushroom soup – it was surprisingly creamy and delicious! I am not usually a fan of mushroom soup but I may have been converted about this.
I opt for the pan fried sea bass with portobello mushroom stuffed with bacon, onion in pesto sauce (HKD168). The fish was beautifully pan fried, making the skin crispy, and I loved the mushroom stuffed with bacon. The pesto sauce I probably should have asked on the side as sometimes it can be over powering.
J opt for the prime rib original sandwich served with French fries and an apple. Yes – you read that right – it literary came with an apple!
The prime rib sandwich looked superb, the beef itself was tender and the bread scrumptious – I really should have ordered this. NEXT TIME!
Unfortunately we were all too full for dessert, but I do love finding new restaurants. There’s really no shortage of restaurants in Central, which makes decision making extremely painful – I don’t know if that’s a blessing or not!
Service was polite and efficient; I do recommend you make a reservation at lunch time during the week, especially during peak hour. The restaurant is TINY and you may have to wait a while!
