1/5 Neuvo, WanChai
1/5 Neuvo on Star Street has been around for a while now. I have been here many times for drinks but never really to eat. It is opened by the Elite Concept Group who also owns ye Shanghai, Quemo, He Jiang and Nanhai no1. 1/5 Neuvo serves diners Spanish food and for lunch, we were offered lunch set menu which consists of entrée and a main.
The restaurant was relatively busy for a Friday. We started with some bread – toasted. I do prefer to eat bread fresh, straight from the oven.
V couldn’t go past the shrimp and grape fruit salad. I didn’t have any of this but V thought it was light and refreshing.
The spinach soup was creamy but was a little bland.
V had the grilled calamari with saffron. It looked good, and V did say it ‘wasn’t bad’ but thought the calamari was a little chewy.
I couldn’t go past the grilled chicken with Cajun which was tender and pretty tasty I thought.
We decided to share some tiramisu, it was light and fluffy and was the perfect size for the both of us.
Service was friendly, however, food was a bit of a hit and miss. Company was good though which is the important thing.
