Lunch with Jin Loves to Eat at Madame Sixty Ate

pancakes, honeycomb, coffee cream, butterscotch sauce HK$120
Last December Jin and I were in Hong Kong at the same time. We arrived on the same day and left on the same flight. Our first dinner was at my choice, Ginza Bairin. Our second get together was at a restaurant she has been wanting to try, Madame Sixty Ate.

With the help of Google Maps I easily found the place. I just took the MTR to Wanchai and went out through exit A3 and less than 5 minutes of walking I found Ship St. and J Senses Building.

I really love the homey and relaxed interiors. It’s the kind of place I want to go to for breakfast on a Sunday morning and leisurely drink coffee and read the newspapers.

The bread took a while to arrive but it was well worth it. Warm and comforting specially with their delicious butter. I could have easily eaten Jin’s share too. I’m sure she was eyeing mine.

I was expecting a pot pie with crust on top instead got a deconstructed pie. Beef short ribs braised in Guinness beer was served with manchego pastry on the side. Our first comment was, “It’s not enough!” Overall it was just ok. The beef was tender enough but I had to add a little salt for the flavors to come out.

Jin chose the lamb ragout with hand cut pasta. I liked it much better.

Since Jin and I didn’t find anything enticing from the dessert menu we chose the pancakes from the brunch menu. Smart huh? That’s what you get when two food bloggers with voracious appetites eat together.

We both enjoyed the super thick pancakes much more than our entrees. The pancakes were soft yet a bit dense and a little salty which was just perfect when drenched with the coffee cream and butterscotch sauce. I would definitely go back just for this pancake!!!!

They gave us each a chocolate ice cream lollipop for being such good diners and cleaning our plates.

I suspect that I will enjoy their brunch and afternoon tea much more. I shall return for that.
