The Globe, Soho, Hong Kong
‘The Mother’ really likes this place – well he likes the beer that’s on offer at The Globe. It is a pretty cool place for lunch on weekdays as well as weekends. They have some pretty tasty pies on offer which ‘The Mother’ really enjoyed.
Situated on Hollywood, the restaurant itself is quite big, it’s very down-to-earth and offers diners warm ‘British’ comfort food. I have been here a couple of times now, mainly for lunch. Came with my colleague and he had the set menu – two courses for HKD135.
He started with the vegetable samosa with mint chutney.
For mains, poached salmon, wasabi mash, prawns, spinach and cream. The salmon was beautifully cooked. The wasabi mash was delicious – a hint of wasabi and the prawns a wonderful complement.
I have heard a lot about their fish fingers with honey mustard dip (HKD 70) and they certainly did not disappoint. Crispy skin, the fish fingers were moist and tender and I loved the honey mustard dip!
I couldn’t go past the Greek halloumi, quinoa, tabulleh, stuffed aubergine, tzatziki, pomegranate vinaigrette (HKD 90). The halloumi was lightly coated and then deep fried – I love halloumi cheese and the fact that it was fried… oh my! YUM! The tzatziki and pomegranate vinaigrette was a wonderful complement.
I came back here during the Christmas break with some friends. I had the Caesar Salad which was fresh and tasty. They didn’t have any chicken left (not sure why!) so asked if I could have it with some pork sausages – surprisingly it went well!
‘The Mother’ had the pie which he thoroughly enjoyed. I think he’s glad that he can get ‘decent’ pies here in Hong Kong.
I’d suggest you make a reservation. Sometimes it is seriously busy at lunch times! Service efficient and friendly and it is kids friendly also!
