Most Elegant Ramen Meal I've Ever Had - MIST, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong - Closed
The title says it all.
I've never thought a ramen meal could be this elegant. Normally, elegant is the #98763474 priority for me when it comes to food, and I always have this suspicion that elegance = pretentious =/= good. But I am so pleased to say that the food at MIST is super mega delicious!
SC and I ordered 1 set dinner (to share) + 1 additional bowl of ramen. It's the perfect amount of food for both of us.
The meal started with one spoon rahmen of sea urchin (the above picture) and chicken broth gelee with caviar.
Both absolutely delicious!
The lobster & crab meat tartare was sweet and refreshing. Lovely!
The smoked chicken thigh with black pepper sauce? Whew! Best black pepper sauce I've tasted in my life! It gave me quite a good kick, and the chicken meat was cooked to perfection. Wonderful!
Now...the ramen...look at how gorgeous this bowl of ramen is!
The noodles had just the perfect amount of chewiness, the broth's super rich with flavor but not overwhelmingly greasy, the pork slices were melt-in-your-mouth tender.
Although I adore the richness of the karamiso ramen broth, surprisingly, I preferred this ume shio ramen.
Don't be tricked by its paler color. It's very flavorful, with a hint of sourness from the plum. Love it!
I am not a big fan of tofu desserts, but this one was so silky smooth, mildly sweet, lightly creamy with a lovely of something floral....I adore!
I ended my delicious meal with a cup of coffee.
It's so worth the elegant price tag.
A set dinner costs HK$428 and a bowl of ramen costs HK$120-140 (+10% service charge)
