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

Classic British Colonial dinner @ Jimmy's Kitchen [Central], Hong Kong

Jimmy's Kitchen is well-known in Hong Kong, having its roots established in 1928. The current location in Central has been running since 1976, and the atmosphere - dim lighting, dark wood furnishing, and carpet - evokes Hong Kong's past as a British colony. The food served at Jimmy's is described as 'colonial cuisine', and there is a wide selection of classical dishes like spaghetti bolognaise, fish and chips, curries, steak, and roast dinners. This is the sort of place where the classics rule, so don't expect anything innovative or experimental. Service was courteous and faultless, and the food was delicious. If you're in search for comfort British food in Hong Kong, then Jimmy's Kitchen is the place to go.

Duck Breast a la Orange (HK$258), from the Classics page. The duck was juicy and perfectly complemented by the orange sauce:

Grilled King Prawns (HK$198). Succulent prawns simply dressed in butter and served with rice and broccoli:

Sticky Date Pudding with butterscotch sauce (HK$72):

[Prices quoted above do not include the 10% service charge.]
