Thai Basil

Among 3 meals a day, 7 days a week, there are meals that exciting and full of surprises but there are many that are plain boring. I feel bored even writing the review myself. Therefore, I am creating a new label / category named Boring Meal. Less description will be provided because they will be boring anyhow but I don't want to waste the pictures I have taken and deprive reader's



A semi-open kitchen approach but seemed like a semi-fast food counter to me from the speed of serving the dishes, both hot and cold.



Valuable real estate here hence the packed arrangement of tables in my opinion



Refreshing Pomelo Salad but a boring dish.



Thai Prawn Cakes were nice with or without the sauce. The sauce was a bit ... too sour for me to be honest.



Ywannn .... didn't I tell you that it is boring?? Sauteed Spinach leaves was a bit too salty, other than that it tasted like another sauteed spinach leaves everywhere.



Char-grilled cod fish was rather interesting. It was curry broth instead of thick curry. The fish was nice but not of optimal temperature unfortunately.



Char-grilled satay platter was unexpectedly pleasant. Soft and tender beef plus pork skewers. At least they were hot!



Char-grilled Duck Breast wok fried Hokkien Noodles was a bit too greasy and too moist for my liking.



Likes:
  • Casual atmosphere
  • Rather pleasant Char-grilled satay platter
Dislikes:
  • Can be quite noisy
  • Food pacing was pretty fast
  • Sauteed Spinach leaves was a bit too salty
Avg Spending: HKD 100 - 200 per person

Heheheh, i like your new category. I think everyone should have this category ;)

I pass by thai basil often but hasn't managed to try even once. From your review, seems I don't have to :D

Do you guys use a lot of English in Hong Kong? I realized the address included "Pacific Place" and you and Rita seem to write in impeccable English!

@Rita: This category should have been created a LONG TIME ago because many would fall under this category! lol ...

@Ashley: Hong Kong is very multicultural city with a fairly large population of English speaking people living and working here. Not to mention the larger number of returning overseas Chinese as well.

Thanks for your kind words! I still have much to learn in terms of writing, cooking and eating of course :)
