Harringtons, LKF, Hong Kong
Harringtons is part of the Castelo Concepts Group, a new-ish bistro / gastropub in the heart of Lan Kwai Fong. I was catching up with a few of my favourite peeps and suggested this place. The venue was not what I expected, it was bright, modern, big comfy arm chairs and the décor was bright and welcoming.
The menu is extensive with an English twist and ranges from burgers, pies, pasta, rotisserie and many more. None of us really wanted entrees, so went straight to the mains. I couldn’t go past the sage roasted pork cutlet (HKD 170) with mash and apple puree. The pork was incredibly tender, and I loved the creamy mash that came with it. My only gripe was that there wasn’t enough crackle!
M and D opt for the chicken and mushroom pie with green pea mash (HKD 150). I think from memory, they were a little disappointed with the pie. We have been spoilt by the pies in Australia and this just lacked something. The green pea mash was creamy and delicious though, even Dragon enjoyed it.
S had the fisherman’s pies, medley of seafood in rich creamy sauce with a crusty topping of Parmesan mash (HKD140). S thought it wasn’t too bad, definitely better than the chicken and mushroom pie.
For dessert, M and I shared the apple crumble with vanilla bean ice cream (HKD65). Served warm, the apple crumble was delicious and I loved the crunchy topping. My only gripe would be that there weren’t enough ice cream! There never is!
D opt for the molten chocolate pudding with vanilla bean ice cream (HKD75). This looked really good, however, it didn’t have enough chocolate lava which was a shame.
Overall, food was a bit of a hit and miss, I really enjoyed my pork but you can’t really get pork and apple puree wrong right? Poor S, he was jet lagged as hell but still managed to play with Dragon!
Service was friendly, I wouldn’t mind trying their lunch menu, 3 course meal for HKD 158.
