Blue Butcher, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

Blue Butcher has been around for a while now but it was only recently that I dined there. Blue Butcher can be found in the middle between the Press Room and Classifieds, and I love the dim lighting, and atmosphere. The design of the restaurant reminds me a little of New York restaurants and the food I have to say was fantastic.

We started with the Spanish ham and egg / asparagus / mushroom / thyme (HKD 125) and oh my, this was outstanding. I couldn’t get enough of the ham and egg combination, the oozy egg, YUM!

I insisted that we ordered the bone marrow / toast / caper berries / parsley / salt flakes (HKD 125). We ordered two servings of this, as there were a few of us and one was simply not enough. The bone marrow was deliciously rich, and served with coarse salt flakes was equally outstanding, probably better than the Spanish ham. I would be happy eating this day in and day out.

We thought we would share a couple of dishes, started with the rare breed US kurobuta pig belly and cheek / lentils / granny smith apple slaw (HKD 250). The pig belly was melt in your mouth tender, and the granny smith apple slaw was a wonderful complement. It was truly hard not to eat more than one mouthful!

The Dutch veal cheeks and sweetbreads / truffled orzo / herd salad (HKD 460) was surprisingly tasty. My least favourite of the evening though, but still better than I had anticipated.

My favourite was definitely the Australian mann river farm wagyu bone in rib eye 32oz / crisp Yukon gold wedges (HKD 1480) – OMG is all I can say. Seriously tender, seriously delicious and seriously scrumptious! It was cooked to absolute perfection – medium rare and just the way we all liked it!

The potato gratin was deliciously creamy and sinful.

Not to mention the crispy thin fries.

Unfortunately we were all stuffed to the brim and did not order any dessert. I think I ate the most beef! I couldn’t stop – it was seriously good and could be the fact that I was low in iron and craving beef!

Service was good until one of the waiter’s spilt wax on my friend. I don’t think he was highly impressed, his suit ruined. They didn’t offer to pay for dry cleaning but they did give us drinks on the house which was nice of them.

I really would like to go back for that beef and bone marrow– getting hungry all over again!

    I think I’d order a double serve of the bone marrow just for myself. lol
