I was window-shopping at Harbour City (海港城), and my stomach started to give me hints that I needed to eat. Harbour City, as you may know, is a very very very very very large shopping centre in Hong Kong. You would also become hungry if you walk through all the floors.
Again, I was looking for more affordable restaurants and came across Hong Kong Day (美心香港地). It was located in the middle of a more isolated segment of Harbour City. If you’re looking for ambience, it’s obviously not the best place.
Ambiance was not great, but what is the point of a window view of Hong Kong Island on a hazy day anyway?
I ordered a meal combination, and it came with the Hong Kong-styled milk tea. Seriously, who can say “no” to Hong Kong-styled milk tea?
It also came with a vegetable soup. Mind you, Chinese vegetable soup could be very different than a Western vegetable soup or “borsch”. I thought the soup was flavourful with a mix of spices thrown into a tomato soup with soft vegetables.
This was the main dish. Terrible. Just terrible. The white (Portuguese?) sauce was far too thick for my preference and why is it so grossly white? The pasta was a bit cold and the pork was a bit off. Did I like it?…No, I’m not even sure what to make of it any more.
If I remember correctly, I ordered the Baked Fusilli with Pork Loin and Herbs (HKD58). It sounded fancy but well…it looked like that.
I realize that I’ve been writing about less than positive restaurant reviews. I’ll write a positive review in the next one. Thanks for reading!
