Afternoon Tea at Carpaccio

Carpaccio afternoon tea-001
Since I stay so close to iSquare in Hong Kong I’ve tried most of the restaurants in the mall some more than three times. I often pass by Carpaccio but have never tried it since I had no desire to eat pasta or pizza in a country with terrific Chinese and Asian cuisine.

When I saw a deal on Groupon HK for Carpaccio’s afternoon tea for HK$99 instead of the regular HK$199 I quickly bought one coupon. I love afternoon tea and I will get to finally try the food of Carpaccio.

The only good thing about the afternoon tea was the Lavazza coffee.

My dad joined us and he had the wild mushroom soup. Instead of being blended smooth they left coarse chunks of mushroom for a uniquely textured soup. It would have been good except that it lacked salt. Lots of salt.

The only thing good was the chocolate dipped strawberries and the mini smoked salmon sandwich. The sausage roll in puff pastry wasn’t too bad either. The rest was bad. The scones were hard and dry and you can see the small amount of jam and cream they served with it. I’m just glad that I didn’t pay for the full amount.

For HK$99 we could each have had a bowl of hot noodle soup or even a feast at Cafe de Coral.

  1. I have to say even the scones at Four Seasons were hard and dry. Grabe, I finished one whole pot of tea while eating one scone.
