What a noice! Apr 01, 2010
This must be one of the noisiest restaurants that I ever have entered; not that I did mind. It was quite entertaining, and it reminded me of a chicken farm I once visited in South Dakota.
From outside it looked like a quite cosy place, but as soon I stepped in the noise hit me. I entered mostly because the restaurant was full and the light was dimmed and it looked rather cozy. When I entered the noise hit me hard; it was so far from what I had expected.
I waited for the headwaiter so I could get seated. He looked around and gave me a table that I had spotted from the beginning and I felt that I was lucky to get a table next to the bar and the window.
Inside the place looked a little like a clean auto shop with glass garage doors that could be raised on a summer day I guess. The inside was kept in white and the walls had huge white tiles on the walls and in almost all the length of the place it had a large bar to the right, which was full of people.
The tables were small and in polished aluminium. The chairs were fairly low but still comfortable. After a brief look at the menu I decided to go for the crab cake; what is NY without one? As a main dish I chose a rare Hagen Steak.
The crab cake was served on a bed of mango and chilli which actually was sweet and spicy in a nice way. The crab cake was spiced up with chilli as well and my beer disappeared quite fast and I was happy with my first dish. The main dish arrived soon after a few minutes along with my next beer. The portion was huge and the meat was fabulous; I was very satisfied, the bed that the meat was put on a bed of potatoes and apples as the main ingredients.
I finished the dinner with a cup of their H.K coffee which I also enjoyed and during the whole dinner I had a swift and sweet waitress taking care of the service and all the smiles.
