Ole Spanish Restaurant, Central, Hong Kong
‘The Mother’ loves Spanish food – he is always on the hunt for good tapas in Hong Kong. He’s been talking about Ole Restaurant which is located in Central for a while now so finally, one evening on Saturday, we decided to have an early dinner and went to Ole. The place was relatively empty when we rocked up at 6.30pm. We were presented with the menu and some bread, olives and nibbles to start. Everything on the menu sounded wonderful, I wanted to eat everything.
‘The Mother’ couldn’t go past the garlic prawns. I didn’t have any of this, but he said it was one of the best he has eaten – big call i know. He said the prawns were cooked to perfection, it was garlicky and the butter sauce was tasty.
The traditional spanish iberico ham was quite tasty. Eaten by itself or with some bread… hmhmhm delicious
The jamon ham croquettes were pretty good I thought, even Dragon enjoyed it and she is not usually a fan of croquettes
The dish of the evening would have to be the suckling pig – tender pork meat, crispy skin, it just melted in my mouth. I am pretty certain that I could have eaten the whole thing by myself if we didn’t order anything else! IT WAS GOOD!
For dessert, ‘The Mother’ opt for caramel flan. I was surprised he didn’t choose the churros but he wanted something different. The flan wasn’t for me, it was too ‘firm’ for me, I would have preferred it to be much softer and silkier. Shame, as I really wanted something sweet.
Overal service was good and tentative, they kept giving us bread as Dragon would not stop eating it! When we are out at restaurants she would happily sit and eat bread, as she knows they are the ‘good stuff’. I buy the crappy cheap ones according to her!
The waitress and waiter loved Dragon – kept her entertain whilst I indulge in some suckling pig!
