Picnic in Kennedy Town

Nice restaurant, tons of fanfare and great decor but rather expensive.  The value proposition here is Central dining without the crowds so while the restaurant saves on rent, I still pay Central pricing.

Mussels were good but portions were smaller than Frites.

Pasta portion was the size of a small handful.

4 dishes, $700.  The bread is baked fresh every day.  Restaurant has the rotisserie grill to cook their own birds but $500 for a french chicken? no thanks when the local HK purveyor down the street is doing something similar for $200.  If you plan to eat chicken in Kennedy Town, do yourself a favour and walk over to the Kennedy Town Cooked Food Centre down the street.  $200 gets you the best sichuan spiced chicken pot in the Western District and they have since expanded to over 40 tables.  I had to take the guests to chicken pot afterwards and none of us were feeling full after the first round.
