Niji Bistro, Central, Hong Kong

Niji Bistro is one of the newer addition to the family of restaurants on 11 Stanley Street. I have wanted to try this Japanese café but trying to get a reservation for lunch has been difficult! If you don’t have a reservation I wouldn’t bother rocking up as they will tell you that they are ‘fully booked’. Niji Bistro is famous for their omurice which is an omelette made with fried rice and usually topped with ketchup.

Niji Bistro offers diners a set lunch, start with either a salad or soup and a main which ranges from omurice, curry rice, fish and many more. I was catching up with the lovely C, we have known each other since primary school – I didn’t even know she was in Hong Kong until she changed the facebook status location from Sydney to Hong Kong! My long lost friend! The beauty of internet!

C started with the salad, it was quite simple, she wanted the dressing on the side.

I couldn’t go past the pumpkin soup which oddly was served with croissant. I am not sure if the sweetness from the croissant really complemented the pumpkin soup. However, I did enjoy the soup, it was creamy and pumpkin-y!

C wanted something light, she didn’t feel like omurice, so opt for the salmon which was pan fried – a little over cooked for my liking which was served with couscous and steamed vegetables.

I wanted the omurice so badly but all of them had crab in it which I couldn’t eat as Dragon is allergic to shellfish (yes, still breastfeeding!). Instead, opt for the chicken curry with rice and oh my… yum! I think I will be eating more of this in winter, such a perfect winter dish! The chicken was tender, and the curry was definitely satisfying.

We were too full for dessert, but diners can pay extra for dessert. Service was friendly and polite, and the food came relatively quickly which was good. Will definitely be back once I stop breastfeeding to try the crab omurice!

    Croissant and pumpkin soup! Definitely a strange combination but looks like something that I would like to try 🙂
