Ichikawa, Taikoo Shing, Hong Kong
I am truly spoilt for choice when it comes to Japanese restaurant in Taikoo Shing. There are so many that after living here for almost a year I have not gone to every single one! Mind you, some are hidden in the pavilions that I don’t know they exists! Ichikawa however can be found in City Plaza in Taikoo Shing, next to Mc Donalds, there are two locations and the other one is in Kowloon Tong.
‘The Mother’ was craving Japanese. Ichikawa offers diners set menu for lunch, which is quite reasonably priced. With each main dish, we had soup, starters and either rice / noodle.
The Japanese pumpkin soup was good albeit a little too watery for my liking. I do like it quite thick but this was quite flavoursome.
‘The Mother’ opt for some corn soup which I didn’t like but he seemed to have enjoyed it.
The aloe salad was simple but refreshing.
The dumplings were delicious – definitely could have eaten more!
‘The Mother’ really liked the udon in soup with mushroom.
The cold soba was a little salty for my liking but perfect for a warm day.
For mains, I couldn’t go past the grilled angus beef (sliced) in home made sauce. The beef were incredibly tender and I loved the home made sauce.
‘The Mother’ couldn’t go past the assorted tempura – the batter was thin and crispy and I couldn’t help but steal a few sweet potato tempura.
On top of everything we had above, we also had some ice cream, mocha ice cream, mango and black sesame – absolutely LOVED black sesame!
We rolled out of the restaurant FULL! Service was friendly, they kept entertaining Dragon whilst I was eating. All the food above was only HKD125, which is quite decent. I have been back a couple more times, not to have the above set lunch but different set lunches and it didn’t disappoint.
