Our little group of foodies has found it increasingly difficult recently to organise our traditonal Friday Lunch Club gatherings... so we ended up organising a Saturday Lunch Club and braved the cold drizzle to gather at Cépage (23 Wing Fung Street, Wanchai) for a long and lazy session. This restaurant had been on my to-eat list for ages, and I had been looking forward to this lunch a lot... we ordered from the regular lunch menu, and if some of the side dishes were a miss, some others were a massive hit. Overall, I had a pretty awesome meal and will be looking forward to coming back and trying their à la carte options.
|First AB: toasted sourdough bread, iberico ham and tomato "ceviche"|
What a brilliant combination! The ham was delicious and full of salty porky goodness and the tomatoes (for once) tasted like... tomatoes! What a nice way to wait for late comers...
Excellent bread - sourdough with raisins and brioche
The sourdough was perfect. The brioche had a slightly thick and rather tough bottom, while the top part was perfectly light and fluffy - issues with the baking, or with the reheating?
|AB 3: sweet corn velouté with caviar|
The corn velouté tasted amazingly fresh and sweet. The pairing with caviar was interesting and turned out to work quite well.
|Salmon - nicely cooked and still slightly wobbly inside...|
