The Lobby – First At The Peninsula Hotel

Experiencing a classic afternoon tea is typically one of the most important things to do when staying in Hong Kong, at the Peninsula Hotel in particular. It is served at their lobby lounge daily, where is widely recognised as an elegant, deluxe and sophisticate place accompanied by The Lobby Strings. Although I have been seriously longing to visit for a decent afternoon, I am glad to be here tonight for the celebration of our Daddy’s birthday.

The Peninsula Hong Kong is now offering a birthday treat to guests who can enjoy a complimentary set dinner upon ordering for a party of four or more, along with a birthday cake from the Chef.

Our 4-course dinner menu starts with a choice of smoked salmon salad, with chopped potato, red onion, and mustard dressing. Follow by a heart warming clear soup, a chicken consomme with several mushroom stuffed tortelloni.

For main, I like the beef tenderloin grilled to medium rare, nicely tender, serving on a bed of roasted potato and grilled seasonal veggies.

My favourite is no doubt the chocolate mousse which has been beautifully presented in a glassware. Consists of chocolate sponge, chocolate crunches, creamy cherry curd, refreshing sherbet made with Morello cherries and a smooth and silky chocolate mousse base. The rum baba is also very lovely-looking, soaked with a generous amount of rum and topped with a wonderfully smooth Tahitian vanilla cream.

Our dinner ends with a chocolate orange mousse birthday cake and even though we are all so stuffed, this cake still tastes impressive with loads of love.
