Hong Kong, a foodie heaven

When I first moved to Hong Kong, I missed my favourite restaurants in London. Even though there is no shortage of European restaurants in Hong Kong, generally, they’re pricey and not as good as the ones in London, which is no surprise. 1,420 more words

Yardbird (USA)

在香港說起Yardbird,大家第一時間會想起上環那間只接walk-in,要吃到就必須乖乖排隊的日本餐廳。香港這間Yardbird主打日式燒雞,餐牌上幾乎全是燒雞,除了雞腳外,雞的任何一個部位都可以拿來燒。今次要說的並非這間Yardbird,而是遠在美國拉斯維加斯的Yardbird,兩者除了名字相同外,並無半點關係,有趣的是這美國Yardbird同樣主打吃雞,只不過是美國的南部炸雞窩夫。還記得上星期寫了一篇關於鴨腿窩夫的文章,如果說英國有鴨腿窩夫,那與之呼應的就是美國的炸雞窩夫。同樣地,鹹的炸雞、甜的窩夫,配搭着吃看似怪雞,但這種鹹甜配搭的滋味,我一點也不抗拒,甚至吃過幾次後有點愛上這種味道。
這Yardbird位於拉斯維加斯,想不到做起南部的炸雞亦有板有眼。主角是炸雞窩夫,先說炸雞,份量不少,目測至少有半隻,而且有white meat(雞胸部份)也有dark meat(雞腿部份),我相信是可以要求全雞胸或全雞腿,但我沒這樣做,因為我兩者皆想試。炸雞難以置信地香脆,炸粉厚薄剛好,而且皮肉之間脆嫰多汁,一點也不油膩,雞腿好吃可說是理所當然,但連雞胸肉也做得滑嫰不嚡,的確令人欣賞。嗜辣者可以蘸一蘸紅色的蜂蜜辣椒醬,感覺更加惹味。

窩夫輕身口感軟綿,同時非常脆口,車打芝士口味再淋上黑色的波本威士忌糖漿,可謂絕配,此時再吃一口脆嫰炸雞,實在是享受。伴碟還有幾粒醃製過的西瓜,帶微辣,間中吃一塊令味蕾更清爽。至於其他菜式也做得不俗,Mac and Cheese用了五款芝士混煮而成,意粉有嚼勁,味道很特別;Devilled Egg看似是簡單的一道菜,做法是先取出蛋黃,再混合芥茉、辣粉及蛋黃醬等調味,味道飽滿;Bacon Butterscotch Cake其實亦是鹹甜的配搭,奶油糖的焦糖香氣與煙肉香非常配合。總體來說,這是很滿意的一餐,希望它快點來港開店,以慰我相思之苦。
