。都爹利會館 – 星星的叉燒。
Duddell’s has awarded with 2 Michelin Stars this year. First time to be here, I was so lucky to join the Fancook and enjoyed the signature dishes. And for sure we couldn’t miss the BBQ Pork with Honey which is so well-known in town. The honey was quite strong and honestly this BBQ Pork was relatively sweeter than those in the market. The pork was so soft and easily to make you eat more.
Braised King Prawn with Sweet Chili and Crispy Rice had a delicate presentation since the prawn was sliced to a beautiful Chrysanthemum. The king prawn and crispy rice actually tasted pretty light and therefore the sweet chili sauce played an important role here, not only to bring out the freshness of the prawn but also to give you some excitement of taste.
Steamed Garoupa with egg white and black truffle, and the pan-fried M9 Australian Wagyu with Wasabi soy sauce were the highlight of the dinner. The steamed garoupa with egg white was so smooth and tasty with the supreme soup. It was a very delicious combination with the egg white and garoupa, as their texture was pretty much a contrast. The Wagyu on the other hand was pan-fried to prefect. The juice was well kept in the beef and the wasabi sauce provided the balance to the whole dish.
Roasted Pigeon was surprisingly good in quality, crispy skin and juicy inside. It is not so commonly found in Hong Kong nowadays. So impressive.
食了這麼多道肉類菜式，來一個上湯腿茸津白花，再迎戰都爹利甜品盤 – 楊枝甘露布甸、紫薑皮蛋酥和楓葉柑桔酥。 賣相精緻的津白花，配上金華火腿及上湯，清新得來帶點鹹香。甜品盤上的紫薑皮蛋酥最讓人印象深刻，紫薑和皮蛋一向是好拍檔，但卻沒想過可以一起做成酥點的餡料，紫薑令整個味道更輕型。楓葉柑桔酥，憑那濃濃的柑桔味，你已知道是多麼的足料。
After having several main courses with meat, the poached baby cabbage with Yunnan ham in supreme soup was as perfect dish to take a break and get ready for the dessert platter. The baby cabbage was in a lotus shape with the soup as a base. Such an elegant presentation. The dessert platter included Chilled Mango Sago pudding, baked preserved egg puff with ginger and baked Kumquat puff. The baked preserved egg puff with ginger was a mixture of traditional ingredients and new ideas. Ginger and preserved egg were good partners and they just did a great job with puff. The Kumquat puff was so rich with the Kumquat flavor in the meanwhile.
The overall standard of the dinner was very high and every dish has its signature characteristics. Service was also very good. Duddell’s is no doubt to be awarded with 2 Michelin Stars.
