I wanted a change from dim sum and Chinese food so I went to Kitchen M Caffe at K11 mall for a very American meal of lobster bisque and sandwich.
They had several breakfast and lunch sets promotions but I just wanted lobster.
The coffee shop had a lot of gourmet items from France and Italy for sale.
Duck rillettes are awesome on good warm baguette.

This is the only place I saw British brand Prestat chocolates. I bought the diamond jubilee bar made with 70% dark chocolate with raspberries. It was delicious!

I wonder if these are any good? I want to try a bag of Moak coffee.

Butter cookies and palmiers seem to be the current rage in Hong Kong. Suddenly many, many brands have sprouted around the city.
I hardly ever see lobster sandwich in Asia. Whenever I go to the US I always indulge in a lobster roll which I love.
They gave in to my request to change the potato wedges to a side salad.

The lobster bisque was heavenly. Not too thick but creamy and rich in flavor. It even had chunks of lobster in the soup. A couple of twists of freshly ground black pepper and it was perfect.

The lobster sandwich did not disappoint. Generous large chunks of fresh and succulent lobster meat barely dressed with mayonnaise and sprinkled with shrimp roe. I found two thick slices of brioche too much so I just ate my lobster with one slice. If I ate both slices of bread it would have drowned out the delicate flavors of the lobster.

The coffee was surprisingly strong and delicious. It was sooooo much better than the weak brew that Agnes b cafe next door served.

Kitchen M Caffe is a nice place to have a light meal of sandwiches and salad. Good coffee is a plus. I have my eye on the smoked salmon, egg salad on rye sandwich on my next visit.
