Expensive & underwhelming

2 Posted on 10 / 17 / 2014

The overall impression I have on this place is that it is ridiculously expensive, and the food doesn't represent great value. My wife & I ordered a bottle of water which cost around HK$70...approximately US$10. The food is decent but nothing memorable. Tricky to find...have to walk through the book store when you arrive by escalator.

Pros: Decent food
Cons: Expensive, A bit tricky to find

The Herbivores - Causeway Bay

I had seen adverts for this place for a Sunday brunch deal of main, dessert and drink for $128 honky. That sounded a pretty good deal so I decided to hoover along to check it out. I left feeling underwhelmed.

1stly the choice of drink is either sprite or coke. Any alternative has to be paid for including water at 40 odd bucks.

Next is the main courses. A choice of 5 which while eggs benedict and the like will appeal to some, not those of a vegan persuasion. The only vegan option was polenta cake, cherry tomatoes, mushroom and a sprig of asparagus. This tasted but there wasn't very much of it. No fears, there's dessert on the way to fill the gap...

,,,Maybe not. The dessert was a fruit mousse kind of dish that was gone after 5 tea spoonfuls.

Add the 10% service charge this came to $141. 1st thing I did after leaving was go and buy some food to eat from somewhere else.

Pros: tasty
Cons: Small portions, Limited choice brunch menu, Not good value for your buck
