On my first day in Hong Kong, I had the perfect light lunch at Cafe Gray Deluxe, a modern European restaurant by celebrity chef Gray Kunz up on the 49th floor of Upper House.
View of the Victoria Harbour, I can only imagine how spectacular it must look after dark.
The meal started off with fluffy mixed grain bread accompanied by a plain yogurt dip. Excellent.
The Steak Tartar with Gaufrettes (140 HKD). The delicate texture and flavor of raw beef is preserved and accentuated through just the right amount of seasoning, and when paired with fresh, crispy gaufrettes…yum.
Extra gaufrettes came in a bowl.
The Lobster Cobb Salad (225 HKD), sparked with zesty lemon juice and encircled by fresh slices of creamy avocado, was another ideal summer lunch dish.
Desserts were let go off since I was scheduled to have afternoon tea soon after lunch, but I did enjoy the complimentary plate of dark and milk chocolate chunks.
I walked out of Cafe Gray Deluxe feeling light as a cloud, and the gorgeous weather only served to enhance my happy mood. What’s next? Afternoon tea at Sevva.
