Kong is a sophisticated Asian fusion restaurant with beautiful art and decor – the food is delicious, the ambience romantic and the service is good, however, it is pricey.
They have a great selection of various Asian food – dim sum, sushi, thai curries, noodles and stir fries. Their infamous Hong Kong Pears, potato dumplings stuffed with prawn, duck and chicken, is a must-try. The presentation is a work of art, look at this:
For starters, we also enjoyed the fresh and steamy Lamb Gyoza which was had a spicy lamb mince filling.
We also started off the evening with one of their interesting Asian-inspired cocktails. I had the lemongrass and litchi cooler and hubby the cherry and chilli mojito. The Lemongrass and litchi cooler was nice and light, while the cherry and chilli mojito packed quite a punch!
For mains, my husband’s favourite dish at Kong is the Angry Duck, we always take it medium (not hot) because boy is that duck angry! It is absolutely delicious though.
I had a hard time choosing my mains, having had and enjoyed the sushi, seafood hotplate and lamb grills, previously so decided to opt for a chicken dish this time around. I finally settled on the Chicken Basil Chilli dish with steamed rice. It was good but nothing out of this world..
We ended off our meal by sharing the Thai Silk dessert – two balls of ganache, one white chocolate and the other dark chocolate. Decadent!
