OMF[ood]G: Mansarover & Glasshouse

I’ve decided to start a new food blog section called O[h]M[y]F[ood]G[alore]! Why? Because there are so many different restaurants in Hong Kong that deserves to be showcased and I want to share my food adventures with you all! I will also be highlighting some favourite dishes or drinks of mine that are worth noting. Hope you guys like this new section to my blog!

So here goes nothing.

I’ve been craving indian food since I arrived from Toronto. To my luck, I quickly came across an Indian restaurant signage near my apartment and knew I had to try it out.

Mansarover Indian Restaurant

Butter Chicken, Lamb Korma, Palak Paneer, garlic & butter naan

Location: Tung Chung
Price Range: $$
Atmosphere: ★★☆☆☆
Yumminess: ★★★★☆

MUST TRY

Butter Chicken & Lamb Korma
Both dishes’ flavours tasted just right, the butter chicken was the perfect amount of buttery and the lamb had just the right kick of spiciness at the end. The chicken was super tender and the lamb didn’t have a gamey taste (though I love lamb for that taste) is a definite must try.

NEXT

Okay, just one more place because the dessert is worth a longer post! This restaurant lies amongst one of many above the IFC mall. This Western restaurant was beautiful in ambiance and their unique twist to their dishes is somewhere you have to try!

Glasshouse

Fries with Truffle mayo, pink rice paper roll with smoked salmon, and lychee and rose twiste iced tea

Location: IFC, Central
Price Range: $$$
Atmosphere: ★★★★☆
Yumminess: ★★★★☆

MUST TRY

Fries with truffle mayo
The truffle mayo is one of the best I’ve had so far. The flavour is so much stronger than normal truffle fries that I almost just wanted to eat the mayo by itself.

Masaman Curry Lasagna
First time I’ve ever had lasagne that wasn’t made with bolognese sauce and it was so interesting because it felt like I was having curry with rice…except with pasta. Super interesting and delicious regardless!

Grilled Salmon & Masaman Curry Lasagna

Banana Creme Brulee
I won’t lie, I did see this featured on a television show a few days before and knew I had to try it out. The sight of the dish was beautiful when it was lit on fire. I tried the bananas without the coffee at first and the bananas were crispy on the outside because of the caramel and not overly sweet. After adding the coffee, the creme brulee noticeably tasted a lot more bitter. Next time I probably wouldn’t pour so much of the coffee in.

Let me know if you guys would like to see more of these food featured blog posts! And let me know if there are any worth visiting restaurants in Hong Kong you would suggest to me :)
