Lunch at Petrus, Island Shangri-la Hong Kong

We had lunch at Petrus, the French restaurant at Island Shangri-la hotel in Hong Kong. I always enjoy eating there. It’s not the best French restaurant in Hong Kong but you can count on consistently good food and service all the time.

The spectacular view of Hong Kong’s magnificent skyline and harbour from our table.

The set menu came with a glass of wine. This is what I had.

My set meal started with a generous serving of goose liver confit. It was superb.

The others in our group had the risotto or the soup.

chestnut & fennel buillon,
Shanghainese prawn dumpling

I had the lamb chops for my main course. It was tender and juicy and the portion was generous. Unlike the skinny lamb chops I’ve had in Manila.

roast lamb rack, potato gnocchi

 

My friend had the artisanal pasta from Tuscany w/ truffle ham and porcini marmalade. It cost an additional HK$110 to order this. I tried it and I wasn’t blown away. It definitely didn’t taste worth $110 more. Maybe my palette wasn’t that sophisticated.

black pudding w/ apple

 

Doesn’t the roast beef look cut the wrong way? I know you’re supposed to cut against the grain of the meat.

dessert menu

 


crispy gavottes filled w/ mango, sago jelly

 

As expected I chose the chocolate dessert. As usual it was exquisite. The chocolate was bitter and smooth.
