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!
