Wild Grass – Organic Taste

。Wild Grass — 賣相勝於想象的有機美味。

認識Wild Grass這家餐廳已有好一陣子了,全因為它主力推廣有機及可持續發展的食材。而餐廳一向走樸實及有機菜路線,而且賣相精緻,個人非常喜歡。以前餐廳一向不設午市套餐,到最近終於有了,餐廳亦十分吸引,這天便和同事來試試。

Have known Wild Grass for quite a while because of its organic and sustainable ingredients. Came here with a few colleagues for lunch this time as I recently found the set lunch menu very attractive. The restaurant was decorated in a raw and natural way,which matched its concept, so as the presentation of food.

前菜,我們選了4款。第一道自家煙三文魚配fromage blanc 芝士,賣相相當精美。一層隔著一層的芝士和三文魚,配上香脆麵包食用,三文魚肉質厚實,非常鮮美。

For the starters we picked 4 different choices out of 6. Firstly, Verrine of home Smoked Salmon with Fromage Blanc. The presentation of this dish made me find it very adorable and it tasted delicious with the smoked salmon and the cheese. With the crispy bread on the side, you can’t stop yourself from finishing it.

烤有機燈籠椒、蕃茄、葫蘆瓜、茄子釀羊奶芝士配地中海沙律。層層疊起,賣相特別。紅椒和蕃茄十分鮮甜,以烤的方法更能帶出甜味。羊奶芝士味道清新,剛剛好提起整道菜的鮮味。

Mediterranean Salad with Roasted Organic Warm Bell Peppers, Tomato, Zucchini’s, Aubergine Caviar & Grated Pecorino Cheese. Wonderful presentation. The bell peppers and tomato are so sweet, so as the Aubergine Caviar. Pecorino cheese somehow tasted very light in the course.

烤焗Bayonne 火腿包裹羊奶芝士,配以紅菜頭、火箭菜及合桃。多款充滿營養和能力的食物組合。芝士烤焗後有一點點鹹香,而配上紅菜頭和合桃的甜味恰到好處。而賣相真的出乎意料之外,十分有美感。

Baked Goat Cheese wrapped in Bayonne Ham, Beetroots, Rocket & Walnuts. A combination of a few super food. You may not be able to think of such a nice presentation like this, but it is really a surprise. The combination of saltiness and sweetness made the course unforgettable.

最後這道前菜,自家製南瓜雲吞配蕃茄醬,最令我印象深刻。表面看不出有多特別,但食下去不但能感受到南瓜的味道,還能感受到香草、茴香的清香,嘗到幾種不同的口感。

This last starter, Home Made Pumpkin Ravioli with Pomodoro Sauce, impressed me a lot. You not only can taste the pumpkin, but so as some herbs and fennel in the ravioli.

在選擇主菜的時候,你或許會覺得很難選擇,和同事從8款主菜中選出4款,包括有魚、雞和有機牛。 首先,香蒜醬烤焗海魴,配羅馬生菜及薯仔沙律。以木板上菜,賣相精美,海魴烤得剛好,濕潤得來又清甜,是意外不到的美味。

You may find difficulties to choose your main courses on the menu, since everything looks so interesting. Somehow we managed to choose 4 out of 8 with a combination of fish, chicken and the popular organic beef. First of all, Baked John Dory with Pesto, served with romaine Lettuce & Potato Salad. It came on a wooden board with great pesto flavour. The baked John Dory was well cooked precisely and tasted quite juicy. Wasn’t the texture I expected. Far better than I even thought.

煙黑線鱈薯餅,配有機溫泉蛋、火箭菜。溫泉蛋是個人喜歡的一種蛋煮法,內裡半熟的蛋,十分美味。而煙黑線鱈薯餅粒粒仔細,踏實而不乾涸。荷蘭醬剛為薯餅帶來了一陣濕潤,而份量不是很多,女士也能輕易解決。

Smoked Haddock Arancini Kedgeree, Organic Poached Egg, Rocket & Hollandaise Sauce. Poached Egg is always something that I like. The smoked Haddock Arancini Kedgeree was firm but not dry. Hollandaise sauce brought it extra moisture and made you much easier to finish the whole dish.

有機肉眼扒配Merlot醬汁,再伴以紅菜頭及牛油果沙律和薯條,看到已不自覺流口水了。牛扒剛好煮到4成熟,肉質鬆化而肉汁豐富。牛油果和紅菜頭沙律非常清甜,絕對比薯條健康和吸引。

Grilled Wild Organic Rib Eye Steak with Merlot Sauce & Beurre Maitre d’hotel, served with Hand cut Chips, Avocado & Beetroot Salad. A good balance on the meat and vegetables. The steak was natural and organic, which perfectly cooked to medium rare. Avocado & Beetroot salad is a healthier option to the chips on the side.

在看到林林總總的精美賣相後,絕對不能錯過。蘋果金寶配蜜糖雪糕,真的讓人讚不絕口。蘋果焗後仍然濕潤,但略酸,卻與香甜的蜜糖雪糕很匹配。

I guess you don’t want to miss the dessert while the restaurant keeps showing off the nice presentation. The Crumble with honey ice-cream was so delicious. The apple crumble was slightly sour but tasted so nice with the honey ice-cream. The ice-cream was just sweet enough and made you finish the whole dessert.

薑汁焦糖布甸配芒果熱情果雪糕,相當輕型的一道甜品。焦糖布甸甜度剛好,脆脆的焦糖面非常可口,而熱情果芒果雪糕十分醒神,一洗之前食到的肉類的油分。非常好的組合!

Citrus Ginger Creme Brulee with Passion Mango Ice Cream. A light dessert you may like at the end of a heavy lunch. The creme brulee was not sweet at all due to the ginger. Passion mango ice cream tasted quite sour to refresh your mind and appetite. Awesome combination!

午市套餐,可從6個前菜、5個主菜(連有機牛肉選擇共8個)選擇。而2道菜只需$180,3道菜則需$198。在中環區來說,有這樣的素質,價錢絕對合理。

For set lunch menu on weekdays, you can choose from 6 starters, 5 main courses and 3 a la carte choice of organic beef. 2-courses set menu only costs $180, whereas the 3-courses set menu only costs $198. Quite a reasonable price with this good quality of food in Central.
