Wild Thyme – Mediterranean Feast in TST

Wild Thyme was once a pure vegetarian restaurant, which has now grown into catering also for non-vegetarian conceived by the aim to offer home-style and healthy Middle-Eastern or Mediterranean flavors using well-selected and chemicals-free quality ingredients. The restaurant consists of an exciting bar with cocktails and mocktails, from there we sample some beers, red wine and white wine.

The seven course meal starts with a tabooleh salad in glass, typically made with Italian parsley, cracked wheat, tomato, mint and a strong olive oil dressing.

Our favourite goes to the dipping platter with several different hummus, which we like the Wild Thyme, Jalapeno and Truffle Hummos, served with toasted pita bread.

Halfway through the dinner, we are pretty much discontented due to the time they take to serve between each course. The fried rice and lentil rice pretty much taste the same except the former has mixed nuts whereas the latter has a tomato hot sauce to go with.
The grilled chicken skewer is rather tasteless and dry, served with crisped pita bread, roasted potato and two sauces.

There are also two desserts on the menu, Kanafeh, a soft sweet cheese topped shredded pastry with pistachio; Bozza, traditional arabic ice-cream topped with pistachio.
Eventually, our first Middle-East experience in Hong Kong is quite disappointing.
