Hong Kong: The French Window

Located at International Finance Centre 2, The French Window has an impressive corridor leading to a modern designed dining room with great views of Tsim Sha Tsui.

August being May's birthday month, we were enticed by the freebies that The French Window offered in a partnership with MasterCard, namely; free glasses of house wine and dessert for each, as well as 10% off the bill. It worked!

Amuses-bouche.

Tomato tart.

Pan-seared foie gras.

Roasted pigeon “au sang”, polenta churros, spiced red wine sauce.

Ravioli of blue lobster from Brittany, truffle sauce. Very fragrant. Nice flavors all around.

Chocolate sensation

Yet another dessert; Brittany Cake (Fard au Pruneau)

One more! Floating-island. Egg-white "monte en neige" floating on creme anglaise. Very nice rendition of this traditional French dessert.

Petit fours for the birthday girl.
Quite satisfied with our experience at The French Window.

Now, we were very pleased with the food at The French Window; top-notch rendition of all flavors and textures. only low-point for us were the tomato tart and fard au pruneaux which we would have liked a bit more rustic instead of the 'de-constructed' modern cuisine rendition. But that's just our point of view.
However, the service is really what made our outing very special: the waiter was knowledgeable about the food he was serving, all the wait staff was very attentive to our needs and wants. Adn the dessert kept coming, compliments from the kitchen. Made May's day!

We will definitely return to The French Window for the food and the service.
