Lobby Lounge, InterContinental Hotel Hong Kong

French burger
Our friends who were staying at the InterContinental hotel invited us for a light dinner at the Lobby Lounge.

Even though the weather was chilly we didn’t mind the short walk when we can see images like these.

I took this picture while standing on the steps going to the hotel. It shows part of Sheraton hotel on the right and the majestic Peninsula hotel in the middle.

This was the walkway to the hotel’s entrance.

This was the awesome view from the Lobby Lounge. There was a choir singing Christmas carols too.

This is the best place to watch the nightly 13 minute laser light show ‘A Symphony of Lights‘  eery evening at 8:00 pm. The music and sounds are piped in to the sound system so you won’t miss anything outside.

Tea was served in classy and heavy silver pots.

My ‘light’ dinner didn’t turn out to be light after I ordered a French burger since this was my only chance to eat foie gras for the whole trip.

Unfortunately, it looked better than it tasted. When I ate the burger with the foie gras I couldn’t distinguish the nuances of the foie gras. I ended up eating the foie gras by itself. It was just average.

The burger wasn’t tasty at all. It didn’t have the beefy steak taste I look for in burgers. At least it didn’t have any extenders and it was 100% beef. A good dose of gravy and the fabulous hot, hot horseradish mustard made it more palatable.

The fries with truffle oil was just fantastic! It was so fragrant and  scrumptious. The plain fries of the others paled in comparison by a mile. What a few drops of truffle oil can do is amazing.

The remains of my plate. Burger and fries all gone, bread all there.

Every night while I was shivering in Hong Kong I craved for hot chocolate but timing was always against me. When I saw the boozed up version on the menu I immediately ordered it.

Dark Chocolate Flake – homemade hot chocolate, spiced rum, grand marnier, amaretto covered with milk foam and 24k gold foil.

It was orange dark chocolate liquid love with strong, strong booze. It was the best hot chocolate I’ve ever had.  I wish I skipped the burger and just had 2 glasses of this.
