NOM – Not Only Meatballs

。NOM – 可止肉丸這麼簡單。

一知道NOM開始有午市,毫不猶豫便相約一班同事去試試。3道菜的午市套餐,從菜單自選前菜和主菜,再配上店家精選的雪糕小漢堡,是不錯的價錢和組合。

Once I heard about NOM launching lunch menu, I went trying with my colleagues without a doubt.  A 3-course lunch set includes selective starter and main course, pairing with the signature dessert – Ice-cream Slider, with reasonable price and no SC. Really good deal.

前菜有3款選擇,藜麥羊奶芝士沙律,非常健康的配搭。眾所周知,藜麥營養豐富,是當代的「超級食品」,這次配上少許蘿蔔、羊奶芝士和菠菜,簡單又美味的配搭。

There are 3 different choices of starter, which is just perfect for us to share. Quinoa/Goat cheese salad is a very healthy option. As you may know, Quinoa is the Superfood of this new generation due to its nutrition value. Just a simple mix & match with carrots, goat cheese and spinach and it becomes a nice dish.

南瓜沙律配乳酪醬汁及車打芝士, 聽名字也知道是一個又酸又甜的組合,焗軟了的南瓜,配上酸得很醒胃的乳酪醬汁,很討喜的味道。

Pumpkin salad with yogurt dressing and sharp cheddar is a very refreshing combination. Soft baked pumpkin with the sour yogurt dressing gave you a hit and preparation for the main course.

煙肉手撕雞紅菜頭沙律,是3款前菜中最得我心的一款,是健康得來又帶點邪惡的組合。紅菜頭已煮得軟身,手撕雞肉也醃得咸香,煙肉卻是香脆可口,又鹹又甜的配搭非常不錯。

Bacon, chicken confit and beetroot was the favorite starter out of all three. It is a healthy salad mixed with a bit of devil. Beetroot was so healthy and soft, contrasting the crispy bacon. The taste was just right and balance.

食過份量十足的前菜,其實已經半飽。(不是女生的胃特別小,而是真的很夠份量。) 接著來了3道更有份量的主菜,先是店家的名物 – 肉丸意粉。意粉煮得剛好,有點硬身的。肉丸十分香口,配茄醬絕不感到肥膩。

After the big portion starter, we were half full already. (not just because we are gals.) Here came the 3 main courses which were even bigger. Spaghetti meatballs is the signature dish of the restaurant which you can’t miss. Spaghetti was cooked al dente, and meatballs worked perfectly with the tomato sauce.

9吋辣肉腸批薩,試想想9吋的批薩,女生可以獨力食光嗎? 熱辣辣的批薩,香軟的芝士,惹味的辣肉腸,任它再美味,也真的食不了一整個。

9′ Spicy salami pizza. Yes i’m talking about a 9′ pizza at lunch hour. Were we able to finish it? No, but the pizza was so freshly baked, hot with the spicy salami and smelled so good with the hot cheese.

慢煮三文魚配蘆筍、榛子及明太子醬。蘆筍切片後煮得非常爽口,配上微酸的醬汁,醒胃非常。脆皮的慢煮三文魚配明太子醬,頗新鮮的配搭,個人覺得蘆筍和三文魚已非常相配。

Slow cooked salmon with asparagus, hazelnut and cod roe mayo. Asparagus sliced into fine and thin was crispy and tasty with the sauce.  Salmon pairing with cod roe mayo was somehow a bit too much while I preferred to have the salmon with asparagus.

甜品絕對不能錯過,雪糕小漢堡配肉桂蓮藕片。沒想到肉桂蓮藕片才是最厲害的配角,還差點反客為主! 炸得香脆又不油膩,肉桂味濃郁,十分美味,忍不住食了一片又一片。而雪糕小漢堡有香軟的很,雲尼拿雪糕已處於半溶狀態,配一點點果醬,非常美味。

You must stay for the dessert no matter how full you are. NOM’s signature ice-cream slider was a wonderful dish with the tasty cinnamon lotus root. The cinnamon lotus root nearly took over the entire dish but the soft melting vanilla ice cream won at last with the ham.
