Combining a restaurant and groceries / market at one place isn't something new, perhaps new to Hong Kong, but it has been quite popular in Mexico or at least for Mexican dining establishments to my understanding. Fusion Gourmet has been establishment following this model offering fresh produces along with a wide selection of meats and seafood as well for both its dining menu and grocery.
It has its own bakery as well but wasn't particularly impressed with their breads.
We had over 20 people so we got to put together all the tables to form the long commute table. I liked the setting although I had to shout across from one end to the other end to exchange a conversation. Then again, I didn't really know the people at the other end. (LOL)
The Caesar salad was alright with sufficient anchovies and just the right amount of dressing to make the flavors well balanced.
The Steak salad came with David Blackmore wagyu 600days grain-fed M9+ grilled ribeye cap steak. Humm ... long name for a salad but less sauce would be great so can get a better taste of the ribeye.
We also ordered some grilled Portobello mushroom by picking them right from the produces section. It was nice but a bit too salty if you ask me.
I forgot which fish my friend ordered (snapper?) but according to her she enjoyed it.
Another long name for the Short Rib - David Blackmore Wagyu 600days grain-fed M9+ braised beef short rib with shallots a la creme. I didn't order it but had a few bites. Alright I made my friend to give me a few pieces because I needed to try as many dishes as possible. It was not as tender as I hoped and the sauce was rather light in flavor and thicker would be better.
The Grilled U.S. Kurobuta Pork Loin was the highlight, it was soft, juicy and tender; rather surprising for a piece of grilled pork. I would come back again just for this dish for sure!
- Great Atmosphere for big groups
- Grilled U.S. Kurobuta Pork Loin - Tender and Juicy, better than expected for sure. Thumbs up!
- Short Rib - sauce can be thicker with richer flavor. Texture not as tender as expected but still a delight
- Bread was not particularly impressive even with its own bakery plus there was a charge to bread as well.
