So I failed pretty bad. It was suppose to be me celebrating a friends early birthday (I will be gone for a month) and I totally forgot to wish them a happy birthday (-.-).  Fail. On a happier note, we went to this very interesting restaurant in Hong Kong, the english initials are SYUT.


I would consider this place to be fusion style, although what styles they are fusing I have no idea.  At first I was a bit skeptical because the front of the restaurant looked more like a factory than an actual restaurant:


Thought I was going to eat oil for dinner.

After going in though, the atmosphere felt very vintage (my new word).  The furniture was a bit old, but it was not crowded or loud.

After scrutinizing the menu for 15 minutes, we both decided to get the set menu.  Me being a guy ordered the beef, Vicci being a girl ordered the fish:

The set menu consisted of an appetizer (soup), second appetizer, main course, desert.

And they were all pretty interesting dishes I must say.  I am not even going to try what the ingredients were in each of the dishes.  I will just put the pictures out for you all to see:

Appetizer:  Soup was was cold (It was intended to be cold).  I can’t really put my finger on the taste, it tasted like a sauce that I would have eating Nachos.  It was light and not heavy.


Second Appetizer: Squid drowned in mushroom soup.  I love mushroom soup.  Hence why I love this dish.  Squid was very well cooked (i.e.still hot when I was eating it), and mushroom soup was superb.


Main Course: Beef.  Great dish.  The meat was melting in my mouth.  I have nothing else to add.


Desert: Kind of the bummer of the night.  It was suppose to be orange pulp with risotto (yes risotto desert).  I thought the orange pulp was a bitter, which was agreed with my friend.  So it was not because of my screwed up taste buds.


It’s a bit of a find to get to this place.  Let’s start off with the address:

牛頭角觀塘道316-318號志聯工廠大廈10樓B號舖 or Shop No.B, 10/F, Gee Luen Factory Building, 316-318 Kwun Tong Road,Ngau Tau Kwok

The restaurant is located in a factory like building, and you do need to take this very scary elevator up 10 floors.  But don’t be fooled by the appearance, the food was pretty good!

  1. Those lifts can take up very heavy loads so they aren’t scary! They must be very safe!

  2. I love mushroom soup and I love squid, but I don’t know about them together… LOL. Interesting dining experience for sure!
