It was a spontaneous 'YES' I answered when the besties Kampungboycitygal, AiWei & WenChing decided to throw a birthday celebration for Chris and I at a private kitchen.
Visiting a private kitchen has always been on our eat list for quite sometime but somehow fail to discover the nice ones. As an avid fan of TVB dramas, we've known that private kitchen is a unique type of eatery in Hong Kong. Typical one is based in an ordinary apartments, the capacity is usually less than 10 customers, with no prominent shop signs & advertising is usually by word of mouth from friends. Well thanks to Citygal, we get to know about Huck's Cafe at last.
Do bear in mind if you were to visit Huck's, RESERVATION IS A MUST as it's a home dining concept with limited seating capacities.
Huck's Cafe is nestled in the PJ neighbourhood, offering a three course meal with beverages included at RM68 nett per pax. Affordable and quality home-cooked food that all of us yearned for. Let's feast!
We started off with the Basil Seed Mint Soda for a refreshing start.
A combination of mandarin oranges, rose apples (jambu air) & leafy greens. However, the flavours of the dressings could have tasted stronger.
We decided to have a rather 'Spanish' birthday celebration for the two sweethearts whose birthday fell on the first month of this brand new year.
A cosy celebration for AiWei & WenChing:
our partners in crime...
the culprits who boosted our motivation for more food-hunting...
It's ok. Cos we still love you!
Feliz cumpleaños girls! It means Happy Birthday in Spanish ♥
We settled for El Meson located on Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar for a warm Spanish dinner. Going easy on our gastro-quota, we started off with some tapas. I adore tapas; small Spanish savoury dishes served from selections of meat, seafood to vegetables. We love it being SMALL… but these small servings would be huge as the variety adds.
I miss Spain. Very badly. And an order of the Iberian pig, very well known to be found at an area in Southwestern Spain seemed a must
Iberico Pork Strips in Honey and Sweet Paprika on Potato - RM24
Chorizos - RM16
Spicy Spanish sausages on Confit potatoes
My girlfriends and I have a big thing for desserts. Most girls do I know.
When it comes to pastries, cakes or even breads. We're unstoppable.
What's more if it's stone oven baked pastries! Well it was written on the wall as I stepped into Levain Boulangerie Patisserie.
What's more exciting than waking up to a brand new year ushered with traditional Chinese breakfast of HK Dim Sums?
Besides the satisfying quality steamboat, Jade Pot also serves Dim Sums from morning till about noon; offering freshly made dim sums.
Check out our Jade Pot Steamboat experience HERE.
We kick start the day with a small bowl of Wanton Noodle known very much as 細蓉 (Sai Yong) in HK - RM6.80
Clear broth with springy egg noodles and wanton with large fresh shrimps.
An order of Siew Mai has been a ritual when it comes to a morning dimsum session - RM6.80
