basement hong kong

with 2 comments

i took my husband to basement hong kong for his birthday dinner last saturday. i love gough street. i love all the quaint furniture shops like homeless and carrie chau’s gallery along that stretch.

it was our first time to basement. i have walked past it a few times and i have absolutely fallen in love with the interior. it looks like more an art gallery than a restaurant. i know why now. homeless and basement share the same owner – no wonder the whole place looks like a showroom.

i really like basement. first of all, the service is amazing and the servers are absolutely attentive and good looking ( always an incentive to have appetizer for the eyes) i like that the restaurant is nicely laid out and there is ample space. it is not one of those dining places, whereby you literally could hear the stranger next to you slicing his steak.

we had the rack of lamb and black cod. loved the lamb but the black cod was too fishy.when i complained about the fish, they immediately suggested that i tried something else on the menu. i opted for the crab risotto – which was unbelievable. very very tasty.

as i have told them beforehand that dinner was to celebrate rudi’s birthday – they recommended us to try out the house’s special. it is collection of their best desserts served on a wooden try.they were so sweet to inscribe rudi’s name on the wooden panel. i seriously loved their banana cake and green tea cheese cake ( oh god i love everything green tea, that is like my favorite flavor in the world). unlike a lot of  banana cakes that i have tried, the filling is moist and warm. very well done!

i was so full at the end of the night i was rubbing my tummy – hahaha! can’t wait to bring some people back there especially for the dessert

basement is at 29 gough street, central hong kong
