Djapa (Hong Kong, CHINA) ★★★☆☆

Lee Tung Avenue has gotten a lot more colorful since the arrival of Djapa, a Brazilian-Japanese fusion restaurant and bar right in the middle of the tree-lined pedestrian walkway. This favela-inspired eatery has been brought to us by restaurant group Le Comptoir, who's also behind Bibo, Tri, Hotshot and The Ocean just to name a few.

The two-storey space comprises of a ground-floor bar and first-floor dining area serving a mix of Brazilian and Japanese cuisines. Sounds like fun.

I was here to check out their lunch menu which offers a few interesting options including this one called espetos box (literally means "skewers" in Portuguese). This looked pretty much like a bento box except it's served on a wooden platter.

The skewers of the day included scallops, sausage (tasted a bit like chorizo) and one with chicken. There were also other stuff on the platter including a coconut and seafood rice which was rolled into a rice ball; an edamame salad, some baby potatoes and lastly, apple slices marinated with cinnamon.

That was a fairly interesting meal. I heard they've got a pretty big selection of wine here as well with over 300 types of Japanese whiskies, wines, and sakes available at the bar. Very tempting but too bad, I had to take off for a very important meeting. Until next time!
