The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

A quick lunch date @ LE SALON DE THÉ de Joël Robuchon (Elements), Hong Kong

This was a quickie at 's LE SALON DE THÉ in the mall downstairs, which is where we usually choose for a lunch date if we want something special but close by. This gorgeous restaurant needs no introduction on my blog, as we've been here for both
afternoon tea and lunch two times each previously. There is a set lunch menu available, but we both decided to try the sandwiches instead, because Robuchon's baked goods are always so delicious. And we weren't disappointed. Our choices of sandwich were priced at around HK$200 each, but there were much cheaper and less decadent options available. I would love to try one of the baguette sandwiches one day.

Hubby's Salmon Burger was an excellent choice with moist perfectly cooked salmon fillet, and the wasabi mayonnaise and the black sesame burger bun lent a decidedly Asian flavour:

I indulged in the Lobster Sandwich which contained succulent chunks of lobster meat that was paired with crisp tart green apple slices and sweet juicy mango pieces. The thin slices of turnip complimented the sandwich with its slight peppery flavour:

We shared the Mixed Berries Sundae, which was extremely sweet:
