|Hanger steak with trio mustard|
Restaurant Name : Shelter Lounge
Location : New Street, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong
Rating : 2 Marylicious Stars
Price Range : Around HK$ 300 / person (3 course dinner with non-alcoholic drinks)
Summary : Except for the pork belly, all other dishes were disappointing in terms of flavor and portion size (given that the concept is for sharing...)
After reading about Shelter Lounge, and the dishes on the website, I was looking forward to trying this place. The first time Anna H. and I wanted to go there, the whole place was booked for a private party, so when Juliette and I finally got a reservation, I was very excited to try it.
When I arrived, the atmosphere was inviting, with a spacious ground floor, highish ceiling... although the stair way leading to the 2nd floor was a bit confusing, cos it felt like I was going to a different building or something... While it was comfortable to be sitting on sofa on the 2nd floor, it was kinda weird that we got seated upstairs while the entire 1st floor was empty...
Anyway, while the dishes sounded delicious on the menu, when they arrived, I was very disappointed by the portion size, and further disappointed by the taste, or lack of... We ordered 2 vegetable dishes and 2 meat dishes, and except for the pork belly dish, the others do not even deserve mentioning... Then, we also ordered 2 desserts, and those were also very disappointing...
So, overall, I would not recommend Shelter Lounge...
