Hong Kong: Busy Suzie

Long easter weekend. We went to Ocean Park during the day. I feel like a treat for supper and we've been wanting to try Busy Suzie for a while. We head to 1881 Heritage and take a seat at the bar, where the action is. Japanese Robatayaki is essentially barbeque. In Suzie's case, the chefs are kneeling in front of us. Can't imagine how painful that would be after a few hours.
Anyhow, doesn't seem to impact the food because it was great. Very fresh produce make a huge difference and at Busy Suzie, freshness is clearly an imperative.

I liked everything about it: the decor, lighting, food pacing, cooking, ingredients. May can attest that I have never been much of a seafood person but when faced with amazingly fresh products served well, I will joyfully indulge.

Octopus carpaccio with wasabi (that was reaaally good), and Japanese beans.

Sashimi. Yum.

Soup in a teapot

Tempura. Light an tasty.

Scallops and mushrooms. Scallops tiny bit overcooked.
We will overlook that fact granted the greatness of everything else.

Seabass; nice and crispy exterior. My favorite fish.

I don't usually care too much for lobster but this was just great. Tasty, perfectly cooked, flavorful.


At HK $888 for two, with 2 glasses of Champagne, I thought it was a pretty good deal.
Highly recommended.
