My friend is once again in Hong Kong on business trip and I’m coming up with nice restaurants to bring her to have a decent dinner after a mad day at work.
As she lives near Hollywood Rd, I recommended we walk down some of the little lanes and found a quaint little restaurant called Cage.
A walk round this Viet wine bar and restaurant, we fell in love with the decor and coziness of this place – a perfect hangout to catch up over a quiet dinner.
We started with an appetizer – the crispy spring rolls.
You’ll be surprised how many variations spring rolls can come in, this one is definitely a little distinctive with its deep fried batter covering it.
I’m a big fan of sauce, especially sweet and sour chilli sauce. I just think you can not go wrong dunking your spring roll into it, personal preference of course.
The main dish was the mushroom and pumpkin risotto. Risottos are quite creamy and you can usually smell the aroma of mushrooms when it arrives. This one is sprinkled with shreds of parmesan cheese and decorated with rocket leaves. The ingredients were fresh and portion was just right for the two of us.
Cage scores points for its cosy atmosphere and friendly staff, a place where you can have good fun with your meatasaurus friends but not when you’re famished as the number of veggie dishes is relatively limited.
