A Lovely Sunday Lunch at Isola, IFC, Central, Hong Kong
I am a huge fan of all-you-can-eat meals.
You can totally see it from my (super) size ^_^'
...and also the way I grabbed anything and everything and pile 'em up on my plate ala the above photograph.
The goodies are from Isola's antipasto buffet, mostly delicious.
Here's the bread basket, which wasn't served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar automatically (you have to ask for it).
Not bad, but nothing extraordinary.
Second batch of goodies from the antipasto buffet...
...and here's my favorite from the spread, the ox tongue.
Tender and super flavorful.
The main courses get served once you've finished with your appetizer. But if you're like me (keep hovering around the buffet line), you could request for your main course to be served as you continue to have your appetizer.
The steak's tender, juicy and flavorful. Yummy!
I don't normally order pasta as a side dish, but I have a certain weakness for tagliatelle, and this one is delicious!
Perfectly cooked pasta + tasty ragout meat sauce = winner!
...I went crazy at the dessert station.
Most exceeded my (reasonably low?) expectations. My favorites were the chocolate tart and chocolate eclair.
If I told you that I don't like chocolate, would you believe me?
Good. You shouldn't ^_^
Consume the sweets with a cup of good coffee...
...what a great Sunday!
The lunch costs HK$298 + service charge per person, includes bread basket, antipasto buffet or salad or soup, main course, dessert buffet, plus coffee or tea...and it's worth it.
