Hong Kong - Corner Kitchen Cafe

and mashed dill-potato and beetroot

Restaurant Name : Corner Kitchen Cafe
Location : G/F 226 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

Rating : 3 Marylicious Stars
Price Range : Around HK $170 / person (with non-alcoholic drink)

Summary : The 3 Marylicious Stars rating is based on the roasted salmon dish.  While the salmon itself was slightly overcooked, the overall dish was very good.  The presentation was delight to look at, with all the different colors and the slightly roasted lemon slice as garnish, which gave the dish a rustic feel.  The spicy flavour of the watercress salad is counter-balanced by the mashed beetroot.  Since I am a huge grilled salmon fan, this is definitely a dish I would come back for!  Although next time I'll ask them not to overcook the salmon ^_*

Since Kalena and I were both working at home on Friday, we decided to meet up for lunch.  While deciding where to go, Kalena suggested that we try Corner Kitchen Cafe...  At first, I was a bit hesitant, because the cafe is located in Sheung Wan, which meant that it was a 5-10 min walk away, and in the blistering heat, it wouldn't be a pleasant walk...  But, since Kalena usually has good recommendations, I was happy, albeit reluctantly, to give it a try ^_*

And, I am happy that I ventured to Corner Kitchen Cafe for lunch!

This is a quaint cafe that is located right across the street from the Hollywood Road Park (I had no idea there was a park on Hollywood Road...)  And the upstairs dining area is dotted with lounge chairs / sofas, and a communal dining table.  It looks like a place for a chilled out afternoon, sipping coffee / hot chocolate, while reading a book...
