Hong Kong bites: Bettys Kitchen
I’ve read and heard lots of mix reviews of this place, and tips from my foursquare check-in was all about how it was overpriced and they couldn’t deliver. We unfortunately also experienced the same. This Hong Kong outfit is another project by Alan Yau of London Hakkasan fame and the restaurant boasts lovely interiors by local design wunderkind Andre Fu and a full house of both locals and expats, but sadly the food doesn’t live up to the buzz or its name.
We had greasy burger with very soggy buns (my pet peeve!) and even more greasy fish and chips that made my stomach churn after.
Even Smudge would have turned away from this greasy black cod.
A pity given the nice interiors and beautifully done brand identity. Maybe the a la carte menu is better than what we tried over the weekend. Still, I’m not sure about giving it a second chance, the price and quality just doesn’t match up.
