Trattoria Doppio Zero, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

Another birthday celebration! ‘The Mother’ wanted to take me out for dinner for my birthday, he wanted Italian and Trattoria Doppio Zero came up whilst doing g a little bit of research. It is an Italian restaurant which is located on Bonham Strand, Sheung Wan. It was quite dark when we went, and I couldn’t really see the interior, however, I did some lovely stone wall finishing and the atmosphere is quite relaxing. We were lucky to get our own booth, at first we thought we were going to share a table, but was very pleasantly surprised when they gave us a booth.

I had perused the menu quite intensively and I have seen photos and knew exactly what I wanted! We started with some bread, it wasn’t warm or toasted. The olive oil and balsamic vinegar was a wonderful complement.

We couldn’t go past the fried prosciutto balls – ricotta / mozzarella / pecorino / honeydew melon sauce (HKD75). Four fried prosciutto balls which had a nice crunchy exterior and soft and moist on the inside. The prosciutto balls were addictive, the cheese and honeydew melon sauce was subtle and slightly sweet which was amazingly tasty!

‘The Mother’ couldn’t go past the Tagliatelle – classic Bolognese sauce, parmigiano and nutmeg (HKD160). The Bolognese sauce was natural in colour, and the nutmeg gave the pasta a lovely kick. It was different to other Bolognese sauce I have seen, but this is apparently the typical Bolognese sauce. ‘The Mother’ really enjoyed it.

I couldn’t go past the grilled USDA prime ribeye (10oz) – bone marrow, anchovy and garlic butter and gremolata (HKD385) – OMG!!! The steak is cooked medium rare and it was incredibly tender. The bone marrow – WOW! It was amazingly good and I could have definitely eaten another one on my own!

‘The Mother’ couldn’t go past the grilled yellow fin tuna – roasted peppers, cherry tomatoes and basil (HKD300). I didn’t have any of this but he seemed to have enjoyed it.

For dessert, I couldn’t go past the coconut pandan panna cotta – the coconut was subtle but the panna cotta was deliciously smooth and had the right amount of sweetness! YUM!

Service was excellent and food – especially bone marrow was phenomenal! But I am a sucker for bone marrow and can eat it day in and day out! Really enjoyed my meal here and will definitely be back to eat the bone marrow again. To say I ate well during my birthday is an understatement and still trying to lose the extra kg that I put from Christmas AND birthday!
