Travel Tips

Duck and Waffle pop-up Shop in Hong Kong

還記得約半年前到訪英國倫敦,曾經去過目前全英國最高的餐廳Duck and Waffle試菜,餐廳位於東倫敦(East End)一座商廈的40樓之上,位置居高臨下,可以飽覽倫敦的城市景色,食物配搭有趣之餘,味道也很不錯。若參加過年初的美食節Taste of Hong Kong,對它應該也不會感到陌生,因為當時餐廳亦有參展,將招牌菜式帶到香港。
今次他們再次訪港,更在Ritz Carlton頂樓的Ozone酒吧作客掌廚一星期。先勿論這裏食物質素能否與倫敦本店相提並論,但在這全香港最高的酒吧一邊觀賞着高空美景,一邊享受着他們的招牌菜式,感覺確實像身處倫敦本店進餐,只是風景變作香港的景色。所以今次我也特意點了與上次相同的菜式,比較兩次的分別,看看這pop-up店能否保持水準。當然要先講其鎮店菜式鴨腿窩夫(Duck and Waffle),用比利時風格的窩夫,配搭烤焗至脆皮的油浸鴨腿及煎鴨蛋,再加有芥末籽的楓糖漿,味道非常有層次。記得第一次吃的時候,已覺得這和美國南部的傳統炸雞窩夫概念很相似,只是大廚將它變化成法式風格,而油浸鴨髀要用上三、四天才完成,浸到肉質嫩熟才焗,比炸雞明顯要花工夫得多。這裏的鴨腿窩夫,無論賣相還是份量,跟倫敦本店也是如出一轍,鹹甜的味道、脆軟的口感,依然是非常好的配搭。唯一美中不足之處,是今次嚐到的芥末籽楓糖漿較上次嚐到的相比,實在太甜。

另外試了香辣牛頰甜甜圈(Spicy Ox Cheek Doughnut)和鵝肝焦糖布丁(Foie Gras Crème Brulee)。香辣牛頰甜甜圈裏面有微辣的牛頰肉,一口咬下,外脆內軟,配上煙熏西班牙紅椒粉及杏桃醬,鹹甜辣兼備,若杏桃醬能用器皿另上則更佳,現置於甜甜圈的底部則令口感變腍。鵝肝焦糖布丁的鵝肝味道濃郁,焦糖布丁也做得出色,用作當餐後甜品實在最好不過。可惜這間pop-up店只為期一周,但從他們短短時間之內就到訪香港兩、三次來看,我猜他們進駐香港也是指日可待。
