。Holy Chef – 長沙灣的隱世美食。
Cheung Sha Wan is one of the industrial areas in Hong Kong. To set up a restaurant with semi-open kitchen and with the characteristics of cafe, the owner must have his passion and courage. I finally made a visit to Holy Chef in Cheung Sha Wan after hearing from friends for pretty long while. It was not easily to be found while you have to walk through some residential buildings and garages. Decoration was quite simple, down-to-earth and vintage.
We took a little while to understand and decide what we ate, so we ordered a Earl Grey Latte, which had strong Earl Grey Tea flavour and less coffee. Would be a great choice for coffee beginners.
The sincerity nad hard work of the chef brought lots of characteristics and colors to the dishes. Black Mountain, Cheese tomato & sausage burger with cat-ear milk gnocchi was a creative combination with interesting presentation. Have you even found gnocchi in a cone? The chef put the gnocchi in the cone and let it fall beautifully on the plate. The sauce was pretty rich and the fungus gave it some lightness. Cheese tomato sausage burger tasted not very special but the cheese melt beautifully on top of the tomato, which made it look very delicate.
意粉控在扁意粉和意大利飯之間選擇，當然就是選意粉 Black Grass了。是夜的菜式都和黑色有點關係，之前的海螺粉配上了木耳，而意粉則用上了墨魚汁，配上黑色海草和帶子，有點黑白配的感覺。意粉微硬，少許彈牙，份量十足，食下去蒜頭味非常香濃，但牛奶醬汁令其更易入口。
Black Grass was definitely a nice choice for pasta lovers. Squid ink pasta with black seaweed & scallop sashimi was very presentable. Perhaps you may find that the menu is related to Black. This pasta carried the same theme with squid ink and black seaweed, but the snow white scallop gave us a great contrast. Linguine was slightly harder than usual but I really liked this texture. Garlic flavour was very outstanding while the milk sauce gave good balance to it.
There were a few choice of dessert on the menu. Lemon Tart was one of those detailed and homemade dessert that was one of its kind. It was pretty different from the usual one since the texture was not as smooth as the others. However, the lemon flavour was so rich that you would like it from the first bite.
Once I saw Affogato on the menu, I couldn’t wait to order it. Pouring the espresso into the ice-cream and seeing the ice-cream melting was such a delightful moment.
It was worth to return while you found such hard work of good food here.
