Greenhouse (Hong Kong, CHINA) ★★★☆☆

Newly opened Greenhouse is the third "episode" in Gaia Group's popular "House" series. Located on the 10th floor of the Food Forum in Time Square, it offers an exciting "East meets West" dining concept which has already made the first 2 members of the series, Glasshouse and Townhouse very successful. 

I was meeting up an old blogger friend here for dinner tonight and was pretty amazing with the setting when I arrived. What a nice oasis in the middle of the hustle bustle of Causeway Bay! 

They have a lot to offer with their food menu including 20+ starters (small bite and bigger bites), salad, pizza and main dishes. Even added some Japanese style skewers to the mix. But before we got started, I decided to take a flyer on this Greenhouse ice red bean ($48) to cool myself off first. This was a very nice refreshing start!

We wanted something with a little more flavors to kick things off and it couldn't get any better with these grilled portobello mushrooms from the robtata grill. I am a sucker for portobello mushrooms and this one nicely complemented with kimchi cheese ($42) was exactly what the doctor ordered. 

The kimchi flavored cheese was so addictive!

Next, we had the wagyu beef burger with black truffle mayo and homemade pickles ($148) and it was another tasty dish. I particularly enjoyed the black truffle mayo going extremely well with the natural flavors of the wagyu beef. Very nice.

Less successful was the next dish, fried dirty duck with potato salad and sambal sauce ($298). The duck was actually very meaty but I thought the meat was a little bit too dry for my liking.

Who could turn away from desserts especially when there were so many wonderful options available!

Our dessert was a lovely deep fried brioche with ice-cream and mixed berries. Like the one I had at AMMO a while ago, this tasted a little like a French toast but a lot more spongy and that wrapped up a very enjoyable dinner for the two of us.

What I like about Greenhouse, is the incredible number of gourmet dishes featured in this menu. It makes sharing of food a lot easier for large group gatherings. After all, this is what the "House" concept is all about - sharing food and happy times with family and friends! well, they are definitely on the right track.
