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

Classy lunch @ LE SALON DE THÉ de Joël Robuchon (Elements), Hong Kong

Not too long ago, hubby and I stole away for a quick lunch date on a Saturday after both the younger kids had gone down for their afternoon naps at the same time (alas that was a rare occurrence never to happen again!). With this rare opportunity to lunch without the kids, we decided to splurge a little and headed to an all-time favourite in the mall downstairs, LE SALON DE THÉ de Joël Robuchon. The afternoon tea here is highly recommended, but the a-la-carte and lunch sets are also reliably excellent. We went with the set lunch menu, and we could choose an appetiser from three options, and a main from four choices. Prices varied according to the main dish selected, and the ones we chose were HK$298 each. The sandwich and crepe options were cheaper at HK$238. The option of coffee and tea was HK$38 extra (usually over HK$50), or HK$85 to have cake with the coffee/tea.

Hubby's entree was Spanish octopus confit with grilled cauliflower and green olives. The octopus was tender and tasty:

Mine was the king crab raviolis with daikon, chrysanthemum jelly and green apple. These were excellent bite-sized morsels that was crisp and refreshing:

For main course, hubby got the mushroom tortellini with lobster and Chinese red spinach. I loved the generous chunks of lobster:

The slow-cooked Scottish salmon with seasonal vegetables and seafood broth was melt-in-your-mouth tender with gorgeous flavours:

Hubby couldn't pass up the delicious cakes, so he ordered the Jivara Orange Cake:

An excellent choice:

Once again, we enjoyed a meal at LE SALON DE THÉ that didn't disappoint.
