Wooloomooloo Prime boasts impressive floor-to-ceiling multi million dollar view of the fragrant harbour.
I bet the view would be even more impressive at night.
The decor is modern and chic...let's see if the food is good.
We ordered their Christmas Set Lunch menu, priced at HK$288 per person plus service charge (not including drinks).
The meal started with herb and tomato bread, which was served warm. It's crusty on the outside, perfectly fluffy and soft on the inside. Love it.
I was absolutely happy with the Asparagus, pancetta and poached egg salad with Bearnaise sauce. If you thought nothing is sexier than seeing yolk running out of a perfectly poached egg, try seeing it oozing onto a pile of bacon. Yum!
The shellfish salad featuring yabby, mussels, shrimp, greens and heart of palms in mustard dressing was...alright. But I guess it's a bit unfair of me, a meat and egg yolk lover, to compare this to the sexiness of the poached egg salad ^_*
The raspberry mint iced tea was refreshing, excellent for the surprisingly hot winter day.
I am a sucker for lychee drinks, so I ordered their cool mint mocktail, which had canned lychee chunks, lychee juice, soda water, ginger ale and fresh mint. Again, refreshing.
Love the cream of wild mushrooms soup, which was served with truffle oil and garlic croutons. Super tasty! Plus, call me crazy, but I adore the rich golden tinge of this mushroom soup, it's not the normal grey concoction we usually get.
The Australian lamb fillet was super delicious. Everything on the plate was perfectly cooked.
Ultra tender meat, flavorful ratatouille, tasty red wine sauce. Lovely!
We were a bit disappointed by the grilled Australian rib eye steak.
This corner of the steak seemed nicely cooked (we ordered medium), but the rest of the steak was sadly overcooked. The roasted potatoes and vegetables cpuld use a lot more seasoning and the peppercorn sauce on the steak did nothing to save the overcooked meat.
The traditional Christmas pudding with Brandy, Cinnamon and Raisin Ice cream was delightful. Wonderfully chewy, sticky and sweet spiced pudding, absolutely perfect with the ice cream.
The mango custard cheesecake with red fruit compote and tuille was equally lovely. Rich and creamy goodness on a plate.
Although we did appreciate our window seat overlooking the beautiful view of Hong Kong harbour, the heat (even in winter!) was so unbearable, we were drenched in sweat even after peeling our layers of clothing. So unsexy, it's not even funny! We did voice our concern to the manager, who joked that he should start selling sunglasses and tanning oil (I suggested truffle oil?) and he cranked up the air con immediately. We (and our sweaty asses) truly appreciated his prompt action.
Oh...and beautiful view?
SC said, what view?
