Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, London

Special thanks to our friend who had been trying to sort out lunch arrangements with Dinner.  Due to the nature of our group (5 kids), the restaurant has arranged for us to dine at their private room (less hassle for everyone!).  Excellent in both food and service! Happy kids too!IMG_2608IMG_2610IMG_2612They have different set lunch menus – the ladies chose the 3-course while the gentlemen took the 4-course one.IMG_2615 First thing first – all kids had steak & fries.  Very tasty and cooked perfectly – crunchy on the outside and juicy inside.  I wouldn’t mind a portion for myself.IMG_2628 Savoury Porridge – frog’s legs, smoked beetroot, garlic, parsley & fennel. Nice juicy frog’s legs.IMG_2629

An orange!  IMG_2634 No, this is the famous “meat fruit”!! Made with mandarin and chicken liver parfait. IMG_2637 Rice & Flesh – saffron, calf tail & red wine.  It was good risotto but the “orange” took all the attention. 🙂IMG_2635

Roast Turbot with mussel & seaweed ketchup, salmon roe & sea rosemary – cooked perfectly, so good my daughter ate half of it (after her steak).  IMG_2641 Hereford Ribeye – good steak but I am afraid the one the kids had was even better.IMG_2639

Another of their famous dish – Tipsy cake – roast pineapple and sweet bread.  Very nice but a bit too filling for the end of the meal.IMG_2644

Amber @ Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong (re-visit)

Finally got the chance to do weekend lunch at Amber again and this time round brought along the kids as well.

Amber @ Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong

Thanks to our friends for inviting us to join brunch at Amber, it was a very satisfying and enjoyable meal!


Snacks to start…cheese lollipop and pâté roll

Curry ball

Brunch comes with wine pairing but can also opt for juice pairing

Here’s their signature dish…guess I don’t need to describe..

Smoked salmon

Artichoke with only the core of the bud, very soft.

Sweet corn soup with truffle

Chicken, very tender, with lots of truffle!


Nice selection of cheese…

Pre-dessert – sorbet, yuzu

Berries, a bit too sour for me. The brown strip is marshmallow

Chocolate, chocolate & chocolate!!

Too full…couldn’t finish these..
